Sunday Snippets

Reviewing my phone pics - random thoughts:

It's said to take ten At-Attaboys/At-Attagirls to make up for one "Oh, $----!"
I guess these folks are halfway there...

Hi-Yo!  Is this Clayton Moore's truck?

Goodwill hunting - A Nambé three section server (proprietary aluminum alloy
 functional art, from New Mexico), with one badly tarnished section.

When I finished with the white and brown polishing compounds, mine looked 
like this one offered on Ebay for $72, though I'd paid just 1/9th of that.

Except for the blind spot, I think the Veloster would be a blast to drive.

Others brought gold, frankincense, and myrrh -
this wise man brought the Force...and unusual syntax.

El Jefe's boss did not really die on the dusty plaza of Santa Poco,
 and now markets a plethora of ethnic cuisine spices.

He returns...after reloading, of course.

Some things are self-explanatory.

Meet Señor Scion - but really, shouldn't this be on a
Fiat 500...or at least a Ford Fiesta?

Following a recent managers' meeting, executive management
treated us to a catered event at Top Golf.
Conclusion?  I suck at golf.

Daughter's friends keeping vigil over a pair of teeth
(in the plastic container) left for the TF.

Hey, whaddya know!

I read somewhere years ago that no where on the planet do people deface their cars with bumper stickers like Americans.

I think we just want people to KNOW.

A couple of weeks ago I saw a window sticker that read, Nobody Cares About Your Stupid Stick Figure Family and had a monster truck mowing down said stick figure family.

Probably true.

I suppose it's symptomatic of our rugged individualism heritage, but in many instances the pendulum has swung so far - that people with no individualism, character, or anything to say, believe that they must express themselves.

Steve Martin is not George Carlin, but one of his bits - The Non-Conformist's Oath - contains great truth and insight.

The irony is not lost on me that we now have the most opportunities to self-express (FB, Twitter, and yes, blogs - this one included), and so little of import to say.
