End of the year nonsense

My News Years Resolution is to try and post more, and post a little more personnel stuff.  But for now, more randomness found on the internettubes!

Merry Christmas My Friend

From Chicken Soup for the Pet Lovers Soul, one of the best, and most emotional short stories I have ever read. "I will never forget you," the old man said. A tear rolled down his leathery cheek. "I'm getting old. I can't take care of you anymore." With his head tilted to one side, Monsieur DuPree watched his master. "Woof woof! Woof woof!" He wagged his tail back and forth, wondering, What's he up to now? "I can't take care of myself anymore, let alone take care of you." The old man cleared his throat. He pulled a hankie from his pocket and blew his nose with a mighty blast. "Soon, I'll move to an old age home and, I'm sorry to say, you can't come along. They don't allow dogs there, you know." Bent over from age, the old man limped over to Monsieur DuPree and stroked his head. "Don't worry, my friend. We'll find a home. We'll find a nice new home for you." And, as an afterthought h

Duo MainTenanT

That's the name of the dance these two are performing.  I received this through email from a former co-worker who knew that I enjoyed the Cirque du Soleil when we got an opportunity to see it several years ago.  These two are former Cirque du Soleil dancers who are performing what I can only imagine must be the most sexually charged routine you can get away with in general public. My friend raved about how beautiful this is, and I agree.  But I come away with several questions that I feel need to be asked of you, the backbone of blogging society. Watch first, then answer please. Good, now that you have gone and showered and are toweled off, let's begin. What is the over and under for how many times they needed to rehearse this until he could get through the performance without A) Sporting wood or B) exploding in his pants? Are these two lovers off stage?  If not, is there anything a guy could hope to pull off that could possibly satisfy her? Did he really just ca

Historically Accurate Prints from ETSY!

I found this rare collection of prints that I am thinking of purchasing as a gift to myself for Christmas. Not many people are aware of the dual lives that a few of our most famous presidents lived, and these wonderful prints perfectly illustrate what is great about our heritage here in America. Remember, these are historically accurate, and really happened!! Go here if you want to buy them for me...

Go Ahead, Drive Like a Maniac!

Thanksgiving Trip

Thanksgiving this year was spent up in the Seattle area where my wife is from.  It was a rather short visit this time (5 days) and I posted a few pictures of the visit, including one of the rain when we landed.  Winter months are generally not very nice in the pacific northwest, but it is usually a mixture of clouds and drizzle.  This was full on downpour! One of my Facebook friends commented on the picture of the rain with "So, what's your first impression of the Northwest?"  I kind of chuckled at that after thinking about how many trips I have made up there.  We have been married 28 years now, and have gone to visit at least once, and more often twice a year.  If I guess conservatively at half the years were twice, that amounts to 42 trips to the Seattle area!  I think I might need to start filing state taxes there. My wife's father continues to worry us a lot, he seems to slip a bit more each time we visit.  He met us for lunch and then had to call for help bec

Aviation Nation 2011

Sorry for the serious neglect around this little corner of the internettubes.  I have been appearing more over on my facebook account because it's cheap and easy, just like I am! Hey-ooooooooooooooooooooooo!! My Navy buddy Russ and I made our 3rd trip out to Vegas and Nellis AFB to attend Aviation Nation last weekend.  It was excellent as usual, and here is a collection of stills  for you to peruse. I was going to post some videos that I took, but they kind of suck.  I found some that more professional folks than me took, which are a lot better. My buddy Russ standing next to a tool.
