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.



Bill Is In Town

Former United States President William Jefferson "Bill" Clinton is going to be 80 miles away from me today.

He is speaking at my old school.

The admission price is free.

Seating is on a first come basis, so if you show up early enough you'll get a seat.

The headline of a gossip magazine at the groc store the other day said Bill Clinton was dying and his daughter was trying to make him a grandchild desparately, I think that was the word in the headline, "desparately".

My wife pointed out the headline to me.

I told her that we are aLL dying. Slowly. A little bit at a time. At that moment I didn't know that Bill was 65.

I told my wife that he probably only has 15 to 20 years to live.

But I traveled in the opposite direction yesterday about twice as much and fixed a roof, so I am not feeling up to a second trip so soon. Ergonomic strain. It would also involve fiLLing my diesel tank with 4 dollar fuel. Economic drain. I think my puppy needs me to stay home and play.

Old president, old school, listen to Bill fill a room with words? I think my old tired body wiLL stay home with my old wife and my old dog. Besides, it is s'ppose to have record heat today and the grapes and pineapples don't water themselves.

Coffee is ready to start my day.

I almost forgot to mention this, George Bush The Younger is coming to the same Texas city later this week to go on a bike ride in Palo Duro Canyon. I haven't heard that he is speaking anywhere.

Did I tell you when Big Daddy was all alone in China I only used 1/2 tank of gasoline, 2 months. It is amazing how times have changed.

fmcgmccllc: Um, no, you didn't teLL about petroleum non-consumption rate. Quarter of a tank per lunar cycle? I believe that is borderline agoraphobia. I know that "agora" means "now" in Portuguese, so a good misuse of the word agoraphobia would be fear of the now. But the agora comes from Greek, I believe, "gathering place".

I hear ya. I don't know that I'd want to make the effort, either, all things considered.

Shelly: While thinking a little more about Bill and aLL his post presidential activities, I predict he wiLL win the Nobel Peace Prize in the year 2015. Not that I necessarily want him to win, I just look down the list of winners and its been a few years since a US Prez or Vice Prez has won one.
