They say there is a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. It wasn’t on this ferry, although I thought I saw some Lucky Charms; but Teresa said it was seagull poop. What have they been feeding those birds?
Why do some kids have to doodle all over a book? OK, it’s not a library book, but maybe it was one he had in juvie? It’s “The Regulators”, one of Stephen King’s “Bachman” books. I hope it didn’t warp the kid’s mind any further.
Playing Wordfeud with my sister. I have a really lousy hand here, there are five E tiles! I’ve almost cornered the market on the letter E for this game, the whole set only has 12. Should I hoard them to deny her access? Hate to swap tiles, but there is not much to work with… >Read More
Teresa gets a bit carried away with the “Arts and Crafts” sometimes. My son is appalled, this used to be his favorite toy fire truck. It survived so many imaginary emergencies when he was a kid, this is just disrespectful.

I found this handy party game book for up to 20 guests to play, with three fun games inside! Here’s the first game, think up the longest name for… >Read More
I found this little roadrunner novelty souvenir at a thrift store a few years ago. He’s a cute little guy… just a little roadrunner doll, made in Japan. At least, I hope it’s just a doll.

My wife gets bummed about Christmas being over, and possibly my insurance lady does too; I emailed to ask her whether the damage to this house is covered, and she hasn’t gotten back to me.… >Read More
Looks like I will be sporting my Archie Bunker campaign button this November, since I don’t have a button for Pat Paulsen. I remember my dad hated that this joke candidate was able to get into the voter guide. Even then I thought that parody and mockery have a place in political discourse. Dad should… >Read More
Had to get this matchbook at a street sale, after embarrassing myself by letting a lecherous HEHEHEHE laugh escape while reading the comic. Very curious about this GEM razor with “guiding eye”… Not sure I want it watching me shave though.
