I missed a couple of weeks now but work is slow, I have not seen a pay raise in years and Freddy raised the prices on everything! I will soon be forced to get my coffee from Starbucks. Speaking of coffee, did you know that if you order a “coffee, regular” at a Dunkin Donuts in eastern Massachusetts you will get a coffee with cream and sugar in it? This is just more proof that our “friends” from Massachusetts are strange.
I see everyone is having or has had fun this weekend playing with bees, cars, and houses. C’mone people, I get my honey via SNAP, I take public transportation, and I rent my home from the housing authority. Life the way it should be thanks to my rich old uncle.
WNY; that old house looks nice. They are a PIA but the alternative is to get a crew of Latinos to come and nock all that useless wood off, cover all the trim with aluminum sheeting and then put vinyl siding up. We should respect the efforts people put into homes years ago, so many get ruined and loose their character.

Fix Or Repair Daily, we all heard that one.
Ntp71; let that porch exactly as it is, it may reduce the number of unwanted solicitations.
Yesterday we went on a short trip we had booked several months ago. It was a “spirit circle” with a medium followed by a nice dinner where the salad, entrée, and dessert were all flambéed. Yes SMITTY, it was alcohol abuse but the food tasted good. After dinner we took a short ghost tour at an old renovated fire house. I don’t know if it was the ghosts but the elevator jammed with six ladies from the group inside and they had to be rescued by the local fire department. As far as the medium/psychic it was interesting, what she said was close enough that I could believe if I wanted to but vague enough to doubt. I see it as a form of entertainment and they read YOU, not spirits. I tried giving her a poker face but my wife was nodding her head signaling she was on the right track.
Today I want to mow a little and get to the store for a few things I need to make my Cincinnati style chili. I never had authentic Cincinnati chili so I won’t know how well it turns out but if I like it I will consider it a success even if it has no resemblance to the real thing.
Have a good week.
