If Life Made any Sense at all


Recently, my dog got out and was on the loose. I saw him about a block from my house, over by the street which is a main highway through town. Being a responsible pet owner and knowing that swine flu is following the trade routes, I loaded him up and took him to our local vet to be tested for the flu. He was fine. We got home and my middle daughter was over visiting and my wife commented that I took the dog to the vet. To which she quizzically remarks, "Why is it that vets have their own special day?" Of course we look at each other somewhat puzzled and ask what are you talking about. So she in turn replies, "You know, in November. What is so special about them that have Veterinarians Day?" This is the same child that when asked, "don't you know how to sew on a button" she said "What do I look like? Betty Crocker".

So then I was forced to watch Ghost Hunters International because regular Ghost Hunters wasn't on. Plus, I'm Mr. Agnostic when it comes to such things. I'm told to limit my remarks because some people may be really interested in the subject matter and just because I'm skeptical, I should keep my mouth shut. OK. They do this EVP thing. Electronic Voice Phenomena. They are in the Czech Republic. Later in the reveal, they hear some EVP garble saying something like, "Help Me"..If you have ever watched Ghost Hunters, you know what I'm talking about. Anyway, I can't help it. I have to ask, "If they are in the Czech Republic, shouldn't the ghost speak in an eastern European dialect and not English?"

If it wasn't for my horse, I wouldn't have spent that year in college. Have you ever been to college because of your horse?

There is bacon gravy, but similar to sausage gravy, you have to make it. I think it also has something to do with how quickly one can shove a crispy piece of bacon into one's mouth...

Fun blog, autie..I am hoping this will help my comments increase so I can win the hog blogger award..... ;)

Nancy Grace is at the top of my hate list as well. She has interesting shows/topics, but I can not stand that woman...her looks (I know, I know not her fault), her voice (I know, I know, not her fault), her opinions...yeah, yeah...her fault. How did she land that show!

One of my favorite comments was when my ex husband asked me how deaf people use the elevator...we were at the time in an elevator, I was ready to give birth...and he was noticing the braille on the elevator buttons....

Another time a friend of mine was watching the owner of a Chinese rest. making pork egg rolls...she knew they were pork egg rolls and then she asked..."What do you put in those..hamburger?".......

Life...so fun you just don't want to stop livin it.

I remember listening to Molly McGee on the radio and the way she would mix up words. And, George and Gracie, say goodnight, Gracie. It's all funny. I am watching MSNBC as I write this. I turn it on first thing in the morning. Sec of State Hillary Clinton has arrived in India today. I wish there was move coverage of her. Actually, Autie, your blog was cute and funny. I too watch Ghost Hunters. I think it should be live because it would be fun to see them find something - or someone.

MSNBC is great. I agree with Chris Matthews and I like the Ed show. I really like William Blake. His poem about the little chimney sweep always makes me cry. I have often wondered how such people come to be with such gifts and such as way of seeing the world. In the painting the ghost is holding some sort of pot and looking into it with a surprised or frightened expression. I can't tell which. What is the meaning of the meteor trail in the painting? Blake did this when he was with the artist-astrologer John Varley. Maybe I will audit an art class at KU this fall.

Did_I_say_that, thanks for the link. I loved it. That's the real reason CD's replaced records, you can't play them backwards and learn the truth they are concealing from us. No one on here has any idea of what anything has to do with anything. :-) But, that really the beauty of it. If Freud had a blog on the Journal World he would be doing therapy on himself.
