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.



Misplaced Moose Ears, McRib Poem and More

I am printing some moose art for someone. The ears don't quite look right,  so I googled "moose head" and noticed several ears drawn improperly.


If you are too chilly, just remember:

Its almost summer!

(In Chile)


My wife was not amused by my answers to her question, "What should I wear to jury duty?"

I immediately responded with, "A tuxedo."

After negative feedback, my second try was a pair of overalls with suspenders, straw hat, and a corncob pipe, oh, yes, and sandals."

More negative feedback.


We have a strange house activity. NCIS can be playing nearly aLL day, sometimes on both teleBisions, sometimes both muted, and I reaLLy don't watch it much any more. I wake to gunfire too often.


A Yummy Sandwich:

Cold Turkey
Cold Oyster Dressing
Sauer Kraut
Freshly Sauteéd Onions Chopped
American Cheese
on Mrs Baird's Honey Wheat Bread with Miracle Whip and Mustard


I just looked in a trash can 
And there see our eyes be?
An empty food container
Imprinted M-c-R-i-b

The drought is over ....


While shopping on Black Friday:

"Ernie, I just saved 214 dollars!"

"That's okay, as long as it ends up in my pocket."


The Otter Box (brand) protective cover for my iPhone is starting to deteriorate. I guess I should get an Outer Box for my Otter Box.


I am talking to my wife about our Epson 4900 printer and she remarks, "That is the smartest thing you ever did was get that." I told her, "I thought the smartest decision I ever made to get something was to get you (?)" - she laughed, and said, "Yeah, that too!"


The strange thing that happened to me on November 19th: Someone drove to my house, parked illegally in front of it, the driver got out and while looking straight at me, he threw his lit cigarette onto my winter brown dry lawn and proceeded to stomp twist extinguish it with his foot. I found this to be rather rude behavior.


I tell Tamie that I hurt reaLLy bad, entire body, ache.

She asks me, "Have you taken some ibuprofen?"

I say, "I need heroine"

"You aren't taking heroin!"

(Notice my speLLing)

I am in horrible mood and I must say, dress as horrible as you can for jury duty so they are very sure it is a jury of the peers and not a jury of the best dressed.

Done now.

Had to go back and look up heroine, that was the best.

Hello Mr ESB good to see you back posting posts . . . . . there was much to take in there, but I was particularly worried by the man parking..... He sounded scary to me...

I am interested in the possibility of the worn out outer of an outer otter box without an iPhone in the inner Otter box within the outer otter box.

fmcgmccllc: I happen to be in a wonderful mood. I have been collecting 50 things for a single present for over five years and tonight I am finished collecting and now wrapping. My dear friend turns fifty in a few days and I am giving her a present similar to what she gave me. So I am having great fun ...

Rob: As you know I have been terribly busy in the printing business. The cigarette guy was a plumber that showed up to help get the heating going for my son who moved next door. It is nice to have him around as he is rather humorous and huggable. Your otter outer utterances were brainmeltingly delightful. My favorite thing I ever heard an otter say is: "I will personally kill the time child and eat his entrails on my tummy." (South Park) Otters are interesting because they will use a rock as a tool to open shellfish.

Well I guess I can't do jury duty here so I will never have to worry about what to wear. In fact I was never called up for jury duty in Australia - perhaps they didn't know I was there.

Badger: I could send you disguised as me.

Pearl said...

Ernie, ya goof :-)

Pearl: Ah, you say the sweetest things! Glad you are writing again. Please stay warm.

Oh, at breakfast this morning I saw a Minneapolis on a product on the counter and I saw the zip code and I wondered if you lived near 55555 and if it eXists. (checking: Yes, it is Young America Township)
