No Title Sunday

  • It seems nearly every day I see a car in traffic with my initials as the license plate prefix.
  • A friend sent me the following picture:
  • My first thought was "Have my folks bought a classic GM truck?"  Then I checked the tag and found that it wasn't their county.
  • I noted recently that I don't favor DJ Trump getting the GOP nomination for President.  But I did agree with his dismissing criticisms that he didn't correct a participant at one of his rallies who posited that the current POTUS is a Muslim and was not born in the U.S.  Said Trump: "I'm not obligated to defend [him]."
  • Trump was correct to ignore the comments, as they have no bearing on the 2016 campaign.
  • The upshot of the most recent debate partially supports my suggestion for a qualified '16 GOP ticket, and recent news reports hint that the Veep will join his party's race.
  • Still, it's over 13 months to Election (Emancipation?) Day 
  • If we get that far...
  • Because the apocalypse must be imminent - Bill Maher agrees with me.
  • Murphy's Law made a very good point in asking whether the Irving teen would've made it past TSA to board an airplane with his 'clock'.  
  • A co-worker - who, ironically, graduated from MacArthur HS - suggests the incident is a 'black flag/false flag' operation.  I think his terminology is wrong, but I believe there's some deception going on and suspect significant PR contrivance in this event, and that it was possibly planned as such.  
  • Provable?  Probably not.  But apparently the teen's father is no stranger to controversial publicity stunts.
  • BTW, I attended elementary school about a mile from MacArthur HS, but we moved before my high school years.
How long do I haz to sit and pose?
  • Last weekend, I attended a memorial service for a man from my old church.  He and his wife had been married for 32 years.  His widow commissioned a professional singer/videographer to record a tribute, the refrain of which was "Of all the men in the world, I'd choose you again."
  • Wow. It was way cool.
  • About a hundred years ago, a woman told me "I'd follow you anywhere" and "I'd live with you in a shack (or a cave?)".
  • Well, of course that didn't happen.  The older I get, the more I wonder if I can ever be comfortable accommodating someone else's schedule into mine.
  • Walking across the Kroger parking lot after church last night, I was passed by a Power Stroke Diesel...followed by a Nissan Leaf.  Quite the contrast.  It begs the question whether they should have a 'beeper' on electric cars at low speeds - sure would be easy to not know one was approaching.
  • Went for a bike ride Friday night.  The upside was that areas where I usually have to make some effort, I barely noticed.  Downside was that about half of the ride near the creek path was through clouds of gnats.
  • Gnats?  I don't know if I met the "perfect" gnat, but I'm pretty certain I inhaled a few.

I wonder if the Pontiff will be swarmed by gnats?
  • I think the exercise is paying off.  Last week's trip to a Sam's Club health screening indicated cholesterol of 157, and 'normal' fasting blood glucose.  And the Kroger BP machine last night showed 103/73, BMI 24, and 17.9% body fat.
