Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.



Newton's Third Law of Emotion

Here is a new eXperience:

I was startled by ice just now.

Ice of a very small amount.

Inside my house.

In a cup.

My wife left her "empty" tall styrofoam glass of tea on the computer desk from three and half hours ago.

The leftover ice melted and shifted and fell every so slightly making a noise and me jump, equally ever so slightly.

Newton's Third Law of Motion?

It took about 720 milliseconds to begin to figure out what happened.

Scared by falling ice.

A friend immediately responded, telling me to insert Twilight Zone music. I thanked her.

Something from yester-yesterday that has absolutely nothing to do with scary ice:

Everywhere I go today the women are singing too loudly. I am used to a more quiet eXistence.

At least my truck is fixed - new fuel injector at spot number quattro.


Discovery: The last two packages of frozen okra that I have purchased for my gumbo have had freezer burn, which was disappointing. But I recently purchased some frozen breaded okra for my wife. So today I rinsed the breading off, probably at least 95% of it before putting it in my gumbo. It had a much better look to it. The breading probably protects from freezer burn.

My Pineapple Plantation

On a warmer note, it is now September so I had to move my pineapple plantation of three plants indoors. They get to live outdoors June through August. The largest leaves are almost two feet long.

Update: The orchid blooms in the picture are gone, but now I have several new buds happening on new branches and hopefully a fourth pineapple plant under way. They start off very slowly. It is scheduled to be a present for one of my friends who has not had much luck starting her own pineapple plant.
