a shapeless mass

Today is the 100th anniversary of the worst train wreck in Iowa. Would a news organization publish the following paragraph today?

"The passengers in the two smashed cars were terribly mangled. One man's head was cut off cleanly above the eyes; another's body was cut in two. A third man was driven head first into a window. The glass was broken and was cutting him where his head rested on the sill. He pleaded with survivors to kill him and one of them broke the glass under his cheek. His lower jaw, cut cleanly away, fell to the ground, and the man died. Mae Hoffman, of Waterloo, known as "The most beautiful woman in Iowa" was in the day coach. She was killed, her body crushed into a shapeless mass."

Revolution King Sized

This guy has to be taken seriously because he's against the government in power. Which leads me to:

It's time for Uncle Steve to go to Bethesda for a mental checkup, because calling for an overthrow of the government sounds like treason to me.

A Pirate's Life

Some days I want to retire from piratin'.

  • It sucks to have to wear glasses.
  • It really sucks when one of the lens falls out
  • It sucks even more when it falls out while driving
  • Don't even get me started about putting my eye patch on the wrong eye in the morning!

Thank God I don't have a glass eye! It would probably ........... never mind.

At Least I Quit Smoking

Life is getting too bloody strange. I was blaming it on Chantix, but this is not a dream. The sane among us are screwed.

Chantix: Ferrell Poodles with Petunias

I started taking Chantix a few weeks ago to help me stop smoking. It has helped me break my addiction to nicotine. Stopping the physical habit has been fairly easy. I am well on my way!

Chantix, like all medications, has side effects. This one is my favorite:

"You may have trouble sleeping, vivid, unusual, or strange dreams while taking CHANTIX."
Last night I had a dream about a pack of wild poodles. Their fur was filled with dirt and flowers were growing and blooming! Petunias, daisies, and sunflowers. The beauty of the dogs was amazing.

Dream of poodles tonight.

Hey Bob

PJ has already introduced Hey Bob to many of you. She probably didn't mention that I had already taught him how to the "Pirate Squint". Well, he's getting better at it.
