There's a touch of Fall in the air here at Morning Wood Acres. The first bit of color is in the leaves and the temps have been dipping lower than I usually like. I hate the cold.
We tried having a yard sale over the weekend. Paul made some beautiful floral wreaths and was trying to sell them along with some other stuff from the garage. He made $5 on some old nick-nacks. The few people that did show up were more interested in the things in the yard that weren't for sale.
Larry King used to do this kind of thing for USA Today and got paid lots of money to write crap like "Sometimes there's nothing better than a tuna melt and a glass of Bosco." I can write better shit than that on my worst day. Maybe it's the suspenders.
The cat has been peeing in my bedroom again and I can't figure out why. Maybe she's mad at me.
I once dated someone who was raised in the Eastern Orthodox Catholic Church. I used to have fun with him by making statements like, "I don't believe in religion." He'd ask, "How can you not believe in God?" I'd tell him, "That's not what I said. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition and has nothing to do with faith." He'd get this look on his face like a dog watching a football game on TV.
I am confounded on a daily basis at work by people who show up with their laptops wanting a document printed, but have no idea how to get it out of their computer. And they make three or four times what I make.
After trying for the last forty years to lose my New Jersey accent, suddenly New Jersey is hot. Reality shows like Jersey Shore, Jerseylicious, Jersey Couture and the Real Housewives of New Jersey are so embarrassing for this former Jersey Boy. They're so friggin' stoopid.
I'd eat more low calorie, fat-free foods if they tasted like pizza or Cheetos.
Hope you enjoyed this little tour of my psyche. There's something about three days of rain that brings it out. Have a great day and stay dry.
