Icepocalypse and the Thorny Thorns

You may have heard of, or participated in, this little thing we have experienced this past week called the Icepocalypse. Started snowing on my way to voice on Monday, snowed hard that night, snow turned to ice needles that could truly pierce your skin, and by the time we woke up on Tuesday . . […]

Once a Thorn, Always a Thorn.

Today started off weirdly. I was woken between seven and eight by incredible crashing noise.  I leapt up, sure that a tree had fallen . . . on the garage, on the house, taken out the chicken house, SOMETHING.  I ran all around like the proverbial chicken with head cut off trying to find the […]

But of Course.

Make do, make do, MAKE DO. The proper word is “Do”, not “Due”. Quit embarrassing yourselves. —– “Must . . . watch . . . Top Gear on the BBC.”   That’s right, my son . . . embrace the VROOM. (These are the Threshold Performance sheets from Target with the mini chevron Threshold “Organic” (*rolls […]

Common Sense: The New National Deficit

Pixy needs a martini. I went out today.  On my own. That’s probably nothing to most of you.  But . . . I don’t like going out.  I like staying home.  I like staying home for more than a week at a time, if possible.  I like WALLOWING in the staying at home. And I […]

Funny.

1.  The renters rarely remember to take their trash to the road for trash day.  When they do, it is via one of them hanging out of the back of one of their suv’s while the other drives, dragging the trash can up the driveway. It’s the class act you can imagine.  And if you […]

Red. Hot. Mortified.

This past week, The Thorns’ landlord contacted us and asked if there were any objections to renewing their lease. Knobby and I basically agreed that they were still dumb as dirt, but they had nothing specifically egregious enough to warrant refusal. Then, it seems, The Thorns were just so darn HAPPY that their lease was […]

SpikeStrips. That’s What We Need.

Our yard was in sad shape until this weekend. It made me twitchy.  Three weeks of warm weather neglect while we were away.  Weedy grass taller than Ava, and I don’t even want to talk about the “garden”. I don’t really like the garden.  It is a fenced-in space that Dad installed for Mimi.  I […]

Surprise, Surprise.

Guess who opened the gate last night at 10:50 and STILL (as of 7:17 in the evening) hasn’t closed it. That’s right. “Dan”. Of “Suck it, Dan” rants of yore. All of them, their friends, their random weird crappy car visitors . . . all of them all in and out all day today numerous […]

Mad Beef

Still on my Sudafed train.  Annoying. Thought I’d take a break from the Nyquil last night, and boy, was that a mistake. —– When I saw the Amazon Fire TV announcement, I should have known not to be surprised when one showed up courtesy of UPS the next day. It is tee-tiny. It is quick […]

Aggression Avenue

I have often ranted to you about The Thorns.  College-aged imbeciles who rent a trailer that has road rights to our driveway. Our driveway has a gate.  Thorns cannot comprehend proper gate behavior.  There are normal remote “clickers” for this gate, but Knobby wrote a website system for it as well . . . and […]
