How Lazy Do You Have To Be.....



...To Need A Drive Thru Laundry?


If he didn't look bigger - and meaner - than me, I would have taken a picture of who actually is.  The guy in the Lexus dropping off his boxers.

Knew It!


Based on an earlier post One Of These Things had a feeling one of his neighbours wasn't going to survive the winter.

And the winner is.....

Little dude on the left.




Because it wasn't long after the first post that the green Fence Of Death went up on that little guy.


And it won't be long before these guys just slide over next door and finish him off.


Okay, while I was sitting on my butt procrastinating on publishing this post, walked over yesterday and....

Boom boom, all gone.


Them wreckers shore make quick work them thar little bungalows.

Now the only question is, when does the next neighbour go?

Hey, I'm Working Here!

Even bugs are getting more than me!

I guess when you only live one day, you better get busy.

And in case you are thinking, that's two bugs?

Here's one feller by his lonesome.

Only 6 legs not 12.

And I guess a twist on the old joke would be;

"What's the fastest 12 legged game in town?"

"When it slips out".  Ba da boom......


And here there are again.  Taking a break, I guess.

But not too long!

Time's a ticking!

Guess I'm Not The Only One

Ha ha. A day after I post that I wouldn't want this guy's job, in today's paper, somebody else feels the same way.

Give me an Excel spreadsheet and a PowerPoint presentation any day!

You Couldn't Pay Me Enough

....to do this guy's job.

This guy being Sean Spicer and the job being White House Press Secretary, under Donald Trump.

Whereas under Obama, the Press Secretary had to field questions such as "Do you actually realize how incredible the President is?" and "Do you just pinch yourself when you think that you are working for the President?"


To now, a daily barrage of.......


I used to think being a goalie was a tough job, because every time you make a mistake, a red light would go off over your head and a horn would blare.  [Ed. Note: it must have been pretty noisy - and bright - in the old UC's office.]

But that seems like a walk in the park compared to this job.

Sure, everybody expects stressful days once in a while.  A big presentation, or important meeting with your manager.

But knowing that everyday, when you stick your head in your "office" you will be greeted with....

....I hope he gets paid a lot!

On the plus side, I don't see any red lights behind him.  Maybe it's not as bad as I think.

Well Isn't That Special


My idea of special is half price beer or 2 for 1 Fireballs.

Yeah, baby!

Old Barbatella and I may not be on the same wavelength here.




And while I'm at it, $14 for frickin' cauliflower?!  As a side dish?

And you couldn't pay me $12 to eat Brussels Sprouts!

So let's slide on down the road a bit.....



Two Fireballs, please!

I Stand Corrected


No sooner had I posted yesterday's post - One Of These Things, saying that the front yard tree looks dead, when I came across another dead looking tree.


But when I looked closer, that wascally wabbit wasn't dead.





Beautiful coral coloured flowers tucked right at the top.

So maybe there's hope for my Hounds Of The Baskerville tree......

"One Of These Things...." Part Deux

Another big ass house stuck onto a little lot.

Between two little guys.

I remembered this one because of the cool - but freaky - tree out front. (At least they didn't cut it down.)  See Do Not Go In There! for a better feel for it.  And pretty sure it is dead, too.

Looks like the Real Estate agent did just fine unloading that scary place.


Now This Is The Way You Do It
Just do a little addition.
