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.

How To Spot A Millionaire



[An oldie but a goodie.  Especially down here....]




Okay, maybe this is more like down here.......

Oh Sweet Mother Mary!


What type of freakish, demented mascot is this?



Looks like some kind of rabid, flying monkey.




If fact it looks suspiciously like one of those Wicked Witch flying monkeys that made me pee my pants lo those many years ago.

But I think I prefer the flying monkeys.

It likely scares young children, but may be an effective weapon for sports teams.

Maybe you don't want to line up across from some rabid football player. Or you may think twice before defending a demented point guard. Or, and most likely, reconsider standing beside some deranged, zombie college mascot with your tiny child. "Get in my belly!"

So if you ever find yourself in North Carolina with nothing to do, and thinking of going to their State University - don't do it!

A Reasoned Response?


In today's hyper-partisan world, screaming and yelling has replaced thoughtful debate and discussion.

Used to be when folks disagreed, they discussed the issues calmly and rationally.

Well not anymore!

So I took issue with a recent letter to our local paper.  Instead of name calling, I thought I replied in a reasoned manner.
