Che Annon? Maybe not...

I remember when I used to be a good cook. Well at least I used to think I was a good cook
  It seems my cooking abilities have faded along with my youthful good looks.
  Makes one wonder... Was it ever the cooking?....

Presumption of agreement

I  remember a recent and detailed conversation regarding the use of presumptive agreement with a very intelligent person
  a few days later I brought it up as an established phrase and theory.
  The attractive female recent St. Johns College grad was not only unbelieving but actually a little upset.
  "I would have heard of it!" Ah how sweet were those days when I also knew everything. How bittersweet the memory of youth and arrogance.
  She did mutter something unflattering under her breath. Being young she did not say it out loud.
  Anyway I can find nothing on the internet.
  This morning I woke up with the clear recollection of the conversation with my Mom.
   She has been gone these 7 years..... No wonder smart pretty 20 something had never heard of it
Hmm. This post seems to glance over several subjects with only a fun little touch. I am seeing somebody, Maybe Olivia , helping me with a strange poem story thingy in the near future

How to lose weight of the holidays!

Huh? Am I missing the point of the holidays?
  I thought eat,drink, and be merry!
 Not going for the "Eat celery sticks and go to the gym..."
Aren't we all supposed to be ok with our weight?
  Oh I forgot. We have to be ok with what others weigh but must each punish ourselves for imagined crimes against the gods of diet..

  Get up early to go jog (Alone  because my voices are all quiet)  beautiful silent run.
Stop and look from the top of the world. tears of joy....

These are my good old days...

Went to work with my good friend today.
  We work hard then drive to a new spot and chat about any random thing that pops into our heads.
   A client brought us coffee.... The first thing that pops into my head is cat poop coffee.

My buddy was horrified at the thought. He had never heard of such a thing.
 As a pretty conservative fellow he decided that it had to be one of my people(liberals) who thought up such a crazy thing.
  After a few minutes of thought I realized that this is true. No self respecting conservative would consider such a radical change as that!
  I mean look at the thought process one would have to go though to get from coffee to cat poop to coffee again!
"Man I love coffee!" Hey look that tree cat is eating coffee beans!   Hmmm.... Wonder how those beans will taste after he poops them out?" "Hey Jim look at this cat poop!" "Looks delicious Bill, a little rinsing and i bet that coffee will be a lot sweeter than straight off the tree!"
  "Well let's get right on it dude!"
  The other guys "Man I love coffee!  Hey look that tree cat is eating my coffee beans!  Jim get the .22 the @#@#@%$ is stealing our coffee!"
   I have not laughed so hard as I did today in 20 years... and I was getting paid!!

I banged my sternum a month ago and it was pretty, well very painful for a while.
 For some reason I have no NSAIDs in the house so I sort of just lived with the pain.
  I kept forgetting to pick up alleve or whatever at the store.
 My vehicle was in the shop this whole time... When I got it back Tuesday I found some Alleve in the door.
  It was a pain free day!

Ben pickd up a brownie at La Montanita co-op the other day. I later found it uneaten on the table
 Now why would a kid not eat a brownie? I took a big bite.... Gluten free sugar and dairy free... Not so tasty.

Dad. "Don't lie to parents 'cause they always find out."
 Ben, "Until they are 50. Then their memory starts to go. You have one more year before you start forgetting."
  Soren, Daddy is going to stay smart till he is 80!"  Worried voice, "Right Daddy?"

Ben and teasing

Ben has been having trouble being teased at school for a couple of weeks.
 Yesterday three of his friends ganged up on him while playing four square. Harassing him every time he got "out". Very stressful and he was obviously starting to retreat.
  Today his story started out worse as the group bugged him constantly.
  As far as I can tell he somehow turned things around and got more focused and went after the ringleaders and got them all out before recess was over...

Quiet time?

Two runs in a row with no company, just me.... Some people talk about being lonely. I never understood what they were talking about.....


Over the last 3 weeks I have learned the invaluable art of snuffing out a sneeze...
  today I forgot and got a good hearty sneeze in. Guess the damn chest is not healed yet. felt like a horse kicked me...


SO the blue truck... Well it had a bad cam sensor and a bad ICP sensor.
 Ernie had Sean fixed those no luck.. Then they got a p1208 code that they had to look up.  No oil pressure in the fuel injection system. apparently these trucks use a separate oil pump to pressurize the diesel.
 Then they ran out of time and Ernie's truck quit in Hobbs when he was taking his daughter to college
  Sean watched a few videos to check and make sure it was not one of the dozens of other things that never go wrong nut are much cheaper to fix. finally they tried to save me money by getting a secondary market high pressure oil pump. It did not fit. Luckily, I think.
  finally the truck was ready

Usually when I run there is a lot of arguing confusion and chatter
  Today was unusually quiet
 I wonder where all of me were...
