The School of Hard Puckers

Standard

I went to take an ‘after trip’ nap and found I needed to finish putting away the basketed clothes from the dryer still on my bed.
The dryer had created static which is a nothing to me. I’m in the bedroom next to a bathroom you see.
This reminded me of a day a year or so ago when Kathy was complaining about the static in the dress she was putting on in the same bedroom and I told her to slap it up against the bathroom faucet. With questioning eyes, she did do it, and the static went to ground, and the dress hung freely.
Of course you can put it on first and then touch the faucet with your tongue if you want (or finger) and get the spark orrrrrrrrrr, just touch the garment before you put it on! lol
So, on that day she asked me how long I knew about that trick, and I said “Probably all my life!”
Then she puckered up and scolded “You mean we’ve been married all of these years, and I’ve had this same problem and you just got around to telling me?” !!!!!!!
So, now you know the story, and for all of you people that I’m married to somehow (there is more than one way to be married to women…. it’s a possession thing I think), I’m telling you now!
Touch the friggin’ garment full of static to some grounded plumbing close by before you put it on.
You have now been told.
And, if it generates it’s own static while you’re swishing, spray the dress with the magical anti-static atomized spray that is made from old plumbing parts (I guess)! LOLOLOLOL rdd

“Even if we purged these United States clean of illegals, prosecuted the criminals of the world, and all dedicated ourselves to our religion du jeur, so that your personal choice was the only one lawfully allowed, the sub-species of criminals, killers, and aggressive religions would still leak into America and cause amazing grief.
It is human nature by mass, to find the paths of least resistance and greatest mental and physical comfort!
All others be damned!” rdd

All Others be Damned

The Great Mastodon Hunter, I

The Great Mastodon Hunter, I

 

I would bet you’d find me always aware of times when others (and myself) need time to breathe.
Still, I have to make an effort to not be lazy, and do something about it.
The trick is to be productive while practicing this art. I’ve discovered that it is important to have a plan!
Much easier on the psyche! lol
Once in awhile, I don’t realize that I am expending stored up energy which can disturb others.
She suggests I go to the gym, and I, eyes lit up, 99% of the time say, ……………. “Good idea!”
I’m so clever. rdd
I call my long lens photography, “Going hunting!” and Kathy responds with, “Oh good! Bring home some good ones!”
It’s taken some time, but.
I don’t know whether I’m actually getting better at my hunting, or she’s learned to praise me as a great Mastodon hunter. When I ask her to “Look at THIS one!” with excitement, she comes to the computer and goes ………….
“Wow!”
Me!
“Grin”
Have a good ‘hunting’ day, no matter what it might be!
A hunting trip to Kohl’s to find a $300 purse reduced to $90 with the ‘Sale’ plus coupons is a good one for her!
She proudly holds up her ‘mastodon skin’ purse, and I respond with “Wow”!
Have a nice day! rdd

Hey!!! I’m Not Brilliant!

Standard


I’m not embarrassed to admit that I’m not brilliant! I’m not all that intelligently and physically endowed nor do I have a eidetic memory.
But, I am convinced that I am aware of what works and doesn’t work, know the difference between heart think and brain think, trust in physics and natures trends, am somewhat a natural engineer, artfully creative, and thirsty. 
All of these things together allow me to have a personality, protect myself and family, question all things, know morally right from wrong, and have the ability to create something from nothing with great enthusiasm. 
I’m extremely happy with this. 
I’m satisfied that many of you are more academic than me, and that I surround myself with ‘like’ personalities, maybe not exactly, but as a package, my equal.
I am also convinced that our numbers are diluted by an almost equal percentage of severely un-balanced leaky people. 
How do I explain why they are the way they are? 
I’m only guessing here, but an educated guess!  I think they are stuck (some of the essential pieces and parts are lagging behind) somewhere in the evolutionary learning curve that leads up to us! RDD
