My 300th post

Justa lazy Friday

image How cool is this picture? I copied this off the Traffic website for Washington State. I copied this because this is one of the companies I drove for. Heck maybe that's the truck I drove. I don't think the odds of that are to great. They have 16,000 tractors. I enjoy checking on the weather and road conditions in different parts of the country and just happened to time checking this one just right. I think it's so neat that you can check traffic all over the country  from the comfort of your home.

I was checking out "The Street" web site last night. Those of you that like to keep track of the big Pharma companies might be interested in this article isn't it just to bad. It's about time they got side effects instead of causing them,don't cha think?

I'm pissed off, I went to the Airport this morning to pick up Precious Rock. She wasn't there!! You see Momma and I are switching houses for a week with Precious, obviously Ms. Rock thought I was kidding. She said she would like to see some snow because she lives down there in Arizona where the rattle snakes live. I wanted to get out of the snow. And I wanted the chance to stay at a Posh apartment in Arizona. So I thought we had agreed to switch. I was looking forward to laying around the pool reading my "AARP" magazine and getting some sun. But,noooooooo...

I leave you with a joke I found on line somewhere. I'm getting pretty bad about linking back to places. So shoot me already. 

Batman and Robin are camping in the desert, set up their tent and are asleep. Some hours later, Batman wakes his faithful friend. "Robin, look up at the sky and tell me what you see."
Robin replies, " I see millions of stars."
"What does that tell you?" asks Batman.
Robin ponders for a minute.
"Astronomically speaking, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets.
Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo.
Chronologically, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three.
Theologically, it's evident the Lord is all-powerful and we are small and insignificant.
Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow.
What does it tell you, Batman?"
" Robin, you idiot, someone has stolen our tent."

Free Credit Report...

image We are right on schedule to break some snowfall totals.Our local weather geek Jim Teske has a write up on his weather blog. We're still looking at 2 more ft if we get what the averages are for the rest of the year. Any body want to switch houses for the next two months?

Every time I let Indy out to "go to the potty".(Hey that's how he says it) he bugs me to go "bye bye in the car" So I had to run down to the thruway authority to talk to them about an over charge on my bill.Indy said he'd he'd like to tag along so...They had me getting on the thruway in Albany N.y. which is about 150 miles east of here. We never go that far away from home.  Long story short they're going to credit me. Hey $10 bucks is $10 bucks. On the way down every time I stopped at a light Indy would want me to roll the window down so he could stick his head out . He  stays looking out the window till it gets to be to much wind. Usually about 40 mph or so. When he sticks his head back into the car he looks like he was in a wind tunnel. You ever notice that if you blow into your dogs face that it bugs him and he turns his face a way,but he'll stand there for 10 mins and let the wind blow in his face when riding in the car.

I almost got momma to break tradition last night. No not that dirty minds! (Hey at my age getting lucky means Cindy goes to bed before I do.) Any way! No, on the way home Cindy and I were yakking  on the cell phone which we do at least half of her way home from work. I made the effort to try to convince her that we should go out to eat last night. Her response was. "But it's Pot Pie night!" Waaaa... So Stephany. We did have our traditional Wednesday night dinner. Beef Pot pie and a veggie (Canned Peas). I have to admit it was pretty good a-g-a-i-n. $5.00 for dinner is a little better than the $20 something we would have spent. For some reason it's a tradition now.

You know when you get a song in your head that just won't leave? Well I've got one in there now that has been banging around for a couple of days. You would think it would be something like, ''Give peace a chance'' or "We are family'' or some such uplifting song. Nooooo not me. I've had that commercial for "Free Credit Report dot com.'' running through my noggin. Isn't that pathetic?

Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a contest he was asked to judge. The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child.
The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife.
Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.
When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said,
"Nothing, I just helped him cry." I got this from justa wanted to share it with you.


Clilck on this if you thought you were having a bad day

Not Justa mad as Hell.

image I've given myself this award. That's right Stan,I am into self gratification from time

to time. I'm not mad as hell right now. I just wanted to give myself an award,and to

make it available for anyone that needed it. Feel free to take this award yourself.

It's not an award that can be passed on. The responsibility to get mad as Hell falls

on the individual. But be careful as this write up from Fox news will tell you. I

don't tend to get mad much any more. I used to rant and rave over some perceived

injustice. All it ever did was make me tired. Cindy will tell you I used to go on and

on. Now in my old age I just sort of shrug it off. Maybe it's because I've been down

lately. So in an effort to energize my self and get back on my horse, I'm giving

myself the award. Stephany if you read this Pot Pie night is tomorrow night we will

be serving at about 07:30. It was a pretty good day here overall. No snow for a

change. Momma has a good informative post tonight if you want to mosey over there and check it out.(Hell I think she

even says something nice about me)

Money Fun Fact
You know that the odds of winning the lottery are not good, but do you realize how difficult it is? If you purchase 50 Lotto tickets each week, you will win the jackpot every 5,000 years. Source:
Save Money at

Those odds aren't very good are they? They were about the odds of a girl saying yes if I asked her to dance back in high school.  But do you know what the odds are if you don't buy a ticket? Momma and I buy $4.00 worth of lottery tickets a week.{Ok more counting the scratch offs} that's our one vice that we allow ourselves. We don't smoke or drink so allow me at least one vice.

I was pretty busy today. I had to go back to my Orthopedic Dr. today. Actually it was his Nurse Practitioner I saw. She took a couple X-rays of my knees. It showed Arthritis which is what I already knew. She continue to maintain that I am Permanently partially disabled. The Independent Medical Dr. I went to a few weeks ago wrote on his report that I was Temporarily partially disabled. Some where in between lies the truth. After that I had to come back across town to the Chiropractor. He did his twist and crunch thingy he does and said see you in three weeks. You know as I look back on this paragraph I realize that I lead a pretty mundane life right now. Besides sitting at this computer,watching the boob tube less and less. I ain't got much else going on. Pretty soon I'll be down to typing  "nothing going on today see ya tomorrow".
