Fri Sep 23 06:02:10 CDT 2016	CATS. Route 47. Bus 166. 

 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.

Fri Sep 16 06:38:39 CDT 2016	CATS. Route 47. Bus 179. 

 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
 the way.

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.

Mon Aug  8 22:10:47 CDT 2016	A Dancer's Bow

 Instead of learning to be like

 a nation,

 Let us first first learn to be

 a _c_i_v_i_l_ization.

Thu Aug  4 09:00:35 CDT 2016	Cloverfield (2008)

 Cloverfield (2008) is now included with Amazon Prime Membership.

Tue Aug  2 11:02:07 CDT 2016	Stop pretending.

 Stop pretending that your greed and selfishness are Christian
 values.

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.

Wed Jul  6 10:09:14 CDT 2016	H A P P Y \o/ B I R T H D A Y !

 Happy Birthday! to His Holiness, the Fourteenth Dalai Lama.
