Around the House

They are laying another railroad track beside the one behind my house. Possibly extending the Telford siding track so they can run longer trains. Whatever it’s for, it can’t be good for we who live so near the tracks.

I wonder what gives with the tulip poplar trees around my house? Their leaves are very small compared to normal and so are the blossoms. Probably something to do with the weather changes we are causing.

Bear Bears Hardship in Mate Search

I read an article about a young bear leaving its home in the Polish Tatra mountains and traveling across country into foreign lands in search of romance. I wonder if the bear checked the internet first; there is probably a dating site for them such as Bear Zoosk or Bear, and for bears of faith there is Bear Christian Mingle where God Himself will show Bro Bear the sow of HIS choice. Amen.

For Medicinal Use Only

I use cannabis whenever I can get it. It is illegal in Tennessee but I choose to ignore that and use it for RA pain. I’ve known since the 70s that it helps control pain but much of the weed we had back in the day wasn’t powerful enough unless I consumed a lot of it. Today, it certainly is strong enough to control some heavy discomfort for several hours at a time, especially if it is cannabis oil baked in cookies or brownies or such, One thing for sure, it beats eating prescription pain killers made from opium which can be very habit forming and even deadly.

Thank You

“Thank you” and “You’re welcome” are more conversation than some people are able to muster.

If you keep yourself bottled up within yourself, no one will savor the fine wine which is you.

With all the media hullabaloo about cops beating and sometimes killing unarmed and non-threatening people, are you now afraid to summon the police even for a non-violent matter? Do you fear you or a family member may be harmed or even shot by the police as a coincidence of your call for help?

Thank you for reading my blog.

A rare daytime sight

A rare daytime sight

If Elvis were still alive he’d probably be dead now.

Cloudy, mild, and pleasant day in the hills.¬† A typical late May I suppose. Just finishing drinking a Dr. Enuf pop … delicious. I believe the sodas are addictive; probably the caffeine. Something else I’ve become addicted to is Tootsie Pops. I like most of the fruit flavors except for banana.

Gaining ground on my eyesight. I now have two-to-three¬† hours each day when I can see fairly well. I went for three months without being much able to use the PC, watch TV, or read. I am finally back to perusing a book that Maggie recommended about a Canadian journalist’s look at America and its policies in the past decade. Very good reading.

Ain’t it hard to believe we are in the middle of the second decade of the 21st century? Seems like just a year or two ago when the popular press tried to horrify us with tales of impending doom pending the arrival of the year 2000, or Y2K as it was widely known.
