People who walk in the rain


View from the plant in Mexico where Big Daddy is working.

Not just any rain, pre-Isaac rain on Bourbon Street. On one hand the President, the Govenor and the Mayor involved with this storm have been on the television all day explaining to people how this should work. On the other hand we have EarthCam on Bourbon Street showing us what is really going on. This is hilarious. Look at the laptop and then look at Jim Cantore on the television. This is why China has a chance to overtake us-if they start in the deep south.

Had a rant today for Purple Heart, the charity supposed to be picking up my used books. Some of these books are only a week old and they blew me off. When I called they put me on hold and then hung up on me. Well, they called back, apologized and are coming back tomorrow to pick up the books. I hope so because it is very hard to find a place to donate around here. I can't imagine why, Michigan is supposed to be one of the poorest states, especially the Detroit area.

Sammy is in the dog house, we do not need to discuss why, we will just say he fucked up.

Big Daddy is amazed at how the mountains in Mexico do not have trees. We both forgot about that, it is odd to see. He is trying to stick to his eating plan but in Mexico he cannot eat salad or fruit unless he peels it, just too risky after the China syndrome.

Punkin Head is going on a job interview tomorrow so he is emailing me the trip itinerary so I can follow him on FlightAware, that is the best site ever for plane activity, at least here in the US and with  US airlines.

See y'all later.

  1. Is there a VA hospital relatively nearby? They love getting new books.

    1. Will have to check, I thought they closed the one on the west side. Thanks for giving me a place to start.

  2. I my life books eventuaLLy get lost. I find that sad. I have sometimes discovered that my spouse has hidden them away from me in secret locations, only to be ruined due to abuse in the packing or sealing process. At least she knows to leave my Japanese Kanji instruction book alone because it is very old and has several personal stories of my children from when they were very young.

    Tomorrow they are burying my HVAC mentor. He had a heart attack a week ago. I had seen him twice in the last two hours that he was alive. He didn't look very good. The last thing I told him when I stopped by his ex-wife's house to pick up a motor of mine from the back of his truck (that he had destroyed right in front of me a few days before), was that he needed to "... quit lolly-gagging around and get to work!" He knew I was kidding, of course, as he had earlier related his level of discomfort and pain for something that wasn't even cardio related (supposedly). He told me he was fixing to drive home, but he died a few blocks from his house. He was a little bit younger than me. So that is my current sadness.
