Shoshin Wants Back



I don't know if you remember the incident in August regarding my cat, Shoshin, and her job as my assistant and her subsequent firing, but she has now defiantly requested her job back.

I'm tempted to tell her she did a lousy job as an assistant, but her attorneys are saying I didn't always feed her promptly [3am] and that her kitty litter wasn't always super fresh so it was in retaliation of my lousy job as a cat owner.

She looked really mad about it so I took her back.

Elephan-sie?



We're not all lucky enough to have an elephant friend that will take a selfie with us.

Lovely pic.

Thank goodness none of the Kardashians were in the area.

Fowl To Foul



I don't know about you, but I'm still having David Cassidy songs going through my head (why do the news stations only play "I Woke Up In Love This Morning" and not "I Think I Love You"? *shrug* ) and then this morning I woke up to a commercial where Mary Lou Retton (yes, little Mary Lou) was hawking some Australian joint pain medication... feeling old.

Then it occurred to me that my three favorite college football teams lost over the weekend... feeling bad for those kids.

Then daughter #1 dropped off a cat-pee laden cat carrier with a 'hi and goodbye because I'm late for work' excuse (the reason for the cat pee in the carrier is another story)... feeling like I lost a feline friend.

Then a man in a Ford F-150 truck laden with "stuff" in the back pulls into the lot next door where there is new construction underway and Mr. Cube thinks the man is going to dump his "stuff" into the construction dumpster, but the man goes into the Port-O-Potty instead... feeling like [you fill in the blank because I'm still holding out the expectation of becoming president. I mean, if Bill and Barack pulled it off, what the hey, right?]

Then it occurred to me that daughter #2 is leaving today.

It's not been the best of mornings, but then I read this:

Unhinged Coverage Of Trump Is Hurting The Media

No duh, Sherlock.

I agree that the unhinged coverage of President Trump is a BIG problem, but you don't think Teen Vogue's recent article about anal sex manuals for TEENS had nothing to do with sagging sales?

Parents Outraged Over Teen Vogue Anal Sex How-to column (but magazine still defends it)

And the bottom line of your column is that the media are failing because of Trump... yeah, right.

What is the color of the sky in your world, Mr. Smith?

Meanwhile back to my world, yes, my mood is still foul, but hey, tomorrow is Monday. yah.

Support Squirrel?



Clearwater Beach, Florida Man Facing Eviction Over Emotional Support Squirrel

Simple. This man should tell the condo association that Brutis, his emotional support squirrel, identifies as a dog.

Rebel Gull



I think this sign is supposed to warn humans not to feed the seagulls, but this rebel is having no part of the ban.

You couldn't plan a pic like this.

I just thought of this story. Years ago, when our girls were little, they loved to feed the seagulls at the beach. One day there was one seagull, front and center, that had only one leg. Of course, we felt sorry for it and threw most of the food morsels its way. It must've gotten full, because we saw it light on the sand and walk around with TWO legs. Turns out this is a seagull trick to curry extra food.

Hoomans, you've been warned.

Veteran's Day




IT IS THE SOLDIER

It is the Soldier, not the minister
Who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the Soldier, not the reporter
Who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the Soldier, not the poet
Who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer
Who has given us freedom to protest.

It is the Soldier, not the lawyer
Who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the Soldier, not the politician
Who has given us the right to vote.

It is the Soldier who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag,
Who allows the protester to burn the flag.

Charles M. Province,
WWII Veteran

A Non-Event?



USA Media Ignores Historic Prime Time Broadcast Of Official Beijing Welcome For President Trump...

To quote sundance, "Thirty years ago, it was China controlling the broadcasts and hiding events on that location. In 2017 it’s the U.S. media apparatus hiding."

Ironic, isn't it?

Fried Puppies?



Did you see fried chicken at first too?


Freakish Crab



This is just a hermit crab using a doll's head as a shell. I don't know about you, but if I saw this thing scrabbling across the beach, I'd run the other way.

I know the poor crab doesn't know any better, but I find this disturbing nonetheless.

Online DNA



What Happens When You Put 500,000 People's DNA Online?
Huge Genetic Databases Are Changing How Scientists Study Disease.


The implications for medical research are mind boggling and that's a good thing, but storing the DNA profiles of hundreds of thousands of people online?

What could go wrong, right?

The Schleswig-Holstein Question



Clarice Feldman's "Clarice's Pieces" column , Why Is the Mueller Investigation like the Schleswig-Holstein Question? begins with this humorous observation:

"I’ve been muddling through the week’s events respecting the special counsel’s activities, trying to provide a clearer road map. And even harder -- trying to do it in a way that doesn’t make it seem more complicated than need be. A friend reminded me of Lord Palmerston’s observation: “The Schleswig-Holstein question is so complicated, only three men in Europe have ever understood it. One was Prince Albert, who is dead. The second was a German professor who became mad. I am the third and I have forgotten all about it.”

Fortunately Feldman kindly breaks down the Mueller investigation into easily digestible chunks for us to read on this extra long Sunday.



Dud

Acutal ad in The New York Times this past week:



Imagine you plan a nation-wide revolt and hardly anyone shows up to protest.

My advice to the antifa communists is next time publish your revolutionary plans in a newspaper that people actually read.

Organized Chaos



Albert Einstein’s Princeton office exactly as he left it when he died on April 18th, 1955.

Messy desk, messy bookcase... it's nice to know that I have something in common with Mr. Einstein.

Organized chaos, indeed.
