Extensive mold and mildew on the ceiling in the rear of the bus.
Mon Sep 19 13:41:07 CDT 2016 Dear New Age Homeowner:
The neighborhood cats were here long before you rolled up in your
anthillmobile. We like our neighborhood cats and they are a fact
of life in this neighborhood. Deal with it because we don't care
HOW much you spent on the central air that strains the area power
grid and that hot tub that bleeds the water pressure dry. =^..^=
Mon Sep 19 07:01:31 CDT 2016 CATS. Route 47. Bus 169.
Same depressing Otis Redding song every weekday morning as I approach
the transit hub at Town Square on North Boulevard. Downtown public
WiFi hasn't worked for months.

Rider in the back of the bus listening to music with headphones
and singing along - badly and loudly.
Wed Sep 7 19:53:07 CDT 2016 CATS. Route 47. Bus 87.
Over an hour wait for the bus. Bus was also of the much smaller
type, built on a "van chassis." It was overcrowded and I stood
while the bus was in motion, with little to hold on to.
I will no longer use the city bus to get home in the evening.
Wed Sep 7 18:49:37 CDT 2016 CATS. Route 47. Bus 84.
Over an hour wait for the bus, in which the operator refused to
let us board, claiming the bus was full. The bus was of a much
smaller type, built on a "van chassis."
Tue Sep 6 17:30:01 CDT 2016 CATS. Route 47. Bus 167.
45 minute wait.
Fri Sep 2 17:53:49 CDT 2016 CATS. Route 47. Bus 165.
Operator put the bus in motion before I could take a seat. I nearly
fell down when he put the bus in motion.
Wed Aug 31 19:24:14 CDT 2016 CATS. Route 47. Bus 172.
55 minute wait.
Mon Aug 29 07:48:57 CDT 2016 Hole No.3
Landlord's fix-it guys drilled holes into the bedroom air conditioner
so water would drain out instead of inside the bedroom. Third
drill hole went though the coil.
Wed Aug 24 18:34:35 CDT 2016 CATS. Route 47. Bus 90.
(Smaller commuter bus) 49-minute wait. Witnessed three outbound
buses for Route 47 while waiting for this one.
Wed Aug 17 22:49:21 CDT 2016 Spanish Town Bob's Laundry Tips
Few things murder mildew like pine cleaner. Floodwater and bilge
stains demand boosters like borax, washing soda, and oxy-cleaners.
Pre-wash, pre-treat, and second-rinse if you can. If you can get
a garden hose or a faucet to it post-salvage, all the better. Time
is of the essence. The most dire cases should be handled boot-camp
style using Fels-Naptha laundry soap.
Mon Aug 15 11:46:32 CDT 2016 Empathy dictates
Empathy dictates that those who have been rescued from their homes
and neighborhoods, who have lost everything, who have had something
extraordinary happen to them, might need a little peace time to
deal with what has just happened to them.
Sun Aug 14 11:00:48 CDT 2016 Quiet Little Old Man
When I can think of nothing I can do or say that would help in
any way, I'm a pretty quiet little old man wanting to stay out of
Fri Aug 12 13:05:43 CDT 2016 In my own words.
A few things you night not know about floodwaters. You night not
know how deep it is. You night not know what's in it. You night
not know what's under it. You might not know where it's flowing.
Try to stay off the roads and definitely stay clear of floodwaters.

Tue Aug 2 11:02:07 CDT 2016 Stop pretending.
Stop pretending that your greed and selfishness are Christian
Tue Aug 2 08:13:45 CDT 2016 Life is Good.
Neighbors want to pay me to hang out with their dog? Yeah. Life
is good. :-)
Mon Aug 1 10:14:13 CDT 2016 What do you do?
What do you do when you're a basic shy and sensitive, and someone
treats you like you're a nuisance and a creeper? :'-(
Wed Jul 27 11:17:31 CDT 2016 Baby Boomers
One thing you can't slight on us baby boomers: when ordering a
cup of coffee or tea, most of us won't ask for more extras and
ingredients than a pharmaceutical cocktail.
Fri Jul 22 09:11:22 CDT 2016 Some Things to Consider
The shooting death of Alton Sterling resulted in public demonstrations
that were peaceful and reflected a sense of civic unity seldom
seen elsewhere. The shooting deaths of three members of law
enforcement resulted in a massive outpouring of support from our
local communities and business establishments. There are really
lovely people here. That means Baton Rouge can be a better place
than we've known it to be.
Thu Jul 21 13:57:39 CDT 2016 In a month and a day,
I'll be working in a position for which - among other things -
I can enjoy my favorite pencils and fountain pens, and show off
my best handwriting and penmanship.
Mon Jul 11 14:59:06 CDT 2016 In the 70802
Loudest human-made noises I've heard over the weekend were the
police helicopters and spotter planes.
Sun Jul 10 08:30:32 CDT 2016 Status-seeking Posers
One thing that hasn't changed over the years: the status-seeking
posers are always with us.
Thu Jul 7 09:13:01 CDT 2016 Stand and Chill
No questions asked.
No judgment passed.
I'll hold myself still.
I'll stand and chill.
