My card, it’s sanitary

I took a page from my dad’s uncle’s book, and had cards printed up when I retired a few years ago. First the one with the hammock (A). I have a few left but I discovered that they put me in a bad light, people expect you to do...

Follow all instructions

It always amazes me what people will eat or drink. Remember when some idiots watching YouTube were eating TIDE PODS? Anyway… I don’t care how new and improved it is, drinking dishwashing liquid is a bad idea....

I finally cut my own hair!

I’m no Vidal Sassoon, but I cut my hair, and there are no bald patches etc. – With some creative combing, maybe a little Bryllcream, perhaps a big HAT, I might be able to go out in public if I have to....

I wish someone had told me!

I dug out my old metal detector, had not tried it in the yard at this house. I figured since kids have lived here, there would be matchbox cars, coins, a guy can dream. I only got in one dig before dinner, it was just an old Pepsi can....

Grueling life on the farm pre-Netflix

This guy looks like he is thinking about going into his Uncle Marv’s Cheese business. The number of horse heads vs. the number of legs, is starting to get to him. I gained even more respect when I read the message on the back; Hello Bub; I guess you...

Stranger Things Eggo Game; It’s evil Uno

Got my son the Stranger Things Eggo game, we played it once, but it’s basically overcooked Uno, The twist is that your character card gets flipped during play, and if it’s in the “upside down” you have to get it flipped back before you can win. The instructions are...

Does anybody really know what time it is?

I really like this sort of lazy clock I got for Christmas. It displays the time in sentence form, changing to catch up every five minutes. That’s close enough for a retired guy. Now if I can just figure out a good way to conceal the cord....
