I’m moving my head to “Beautiful Balloon” as I type this.
If I didn’t have a wellness check to share with my elderly cousin, I’d have stayed in bed, too, on this cold and dreary day.
The daily cartoons have recently been more about day-in-the-life of the family instead of hard news. The other cats would not be happy if Burt wrote anything snarky about the Woman or the human kids.
We have a local brand, Neeses, which produces really excellent liver pudding— the local version of liver pate. It’s well-seasoned so it makes an excellent hiding spot for dog pills. I bought a ton of the stuff to hide Molly’s arthritis aspirin, and I had to fight my mom off to keep some in the house. She loved liver pudding sandwiches.
Wooden telephone/power poles as well as power boxes break during an impact by a car so the driver has a better chance of survival. That’s more to protect the power company’s legal rear than to save drivers. My power company uses metal pylons and poles only where idiots can’t slam their cars into them.
Small stores use freezer or bubble wrap for open cooler units to hold in the cold. And it’s National Bubble Wrap Day, too! My house is out by itself so I’m always the last for repairs if one of my poles is damaged. I’ve been without power for two weeks. Frozen stuff is the worst in the early stages of an outage. Do I leave it where it is, do I put it in coolers? Both have their bad side. And the winter ice storms and summer hurricane seasons add the caveat, do I stock up on frozen stuff or do I keep my supplies low in case of an outage?
Read and watch Florida Man stories?
If I were a guy in my late Seventies, I wouldn’t mind looking as good as current Harrison Ford.
Is that a weirdly drawn whip or Wonder Woman’s lasso of truth?
Calvin is always telling Hobbes that those monsters are real, and, sometimes, they are.
And her “uncles” Puck and Lupin and her “dad” Elvis are goofy over her.
