Well, here we go, another Sunday funday. For those who don't know, I work almost every Sunday. This is fine. The store is usually slow in the afternoon, especially when one of the local teams is playing: Baltimore, Philly, or Pittsburgh. Thank you football, a sport which fails to impress me. A number of years ago, someone associated with 60 Minutes decided that they should do a segment about football, the idea being that if you knew about the game, first downs, goal to go, and shit like that you'd find the sport unbelievably fascinating. If that were even remotely true, every sport would have zillions of fans. My theory: football's popularity has a lot to do with the amount of beer being drunk. I went to see the Philadelphia Eagles play the team that used to be called the Washington Redskins and the lines to the beer vendors was constant. After the game, as we were driving out of the parking lot, I reminded our driver that all those drunks are now on the road.
The temps today are supposed to climb into the high 60s (F), and I'm debating whether I should wear a long sleeve shirt to work, or just take a jacket.
This late in the year, it's only my dahlias that are blooming. I still have roses. This is the 3rd time they've bloomed this year.
I have to agree with you about the football interest/booze ratio, although for us it's soccer of course. Now rugby - by golly that's a different kettle of fish, although I suspect the interest/booze ratio is on a par!ReplyDelete
I completely agree with you. Thank God for cycling! While I'm sure some of those lined up along the route have had a pint of two, most realize they're only going to cyclists for about 30 seconds so they don't want to take a chance of missing them because they had to take a leak.Delete
I'm glad Biden isn't running this term yet. I'm not sure how he'd do. Even many in the party are not too sure of him for a second term. I myself am in the middle with him, but it's beyond me why we can't find younger candidates in either party.ReplyDelete
Our roses went nuts this year and still blooming, but are finally slowing down. It will be time to prune them shortly and put them to bed for a winter's nap.
I agree with you on the age thing. They should at least look good in a 3 piece suit.Delete
Every time I saw the phot of Biden behind that girl I asked the question: "But did he grab her by the pussy?"
Interestingly enough, I refrained myself from Tweeting that very thing on quite a few occasions.Delete
