I’m fearful of what is going to go down in Lansing Michigan today at the Capitol.


Evidently the nasty rainy, cold weather kept most protesters away… There were probably as many media people there as actual protesters. Earlier, maybe last night they disallowed guns being allowed inside the Capital, and it was closed today and not in session.

I can’t imagine why guns would EVER be allowed in the Capital in the first place. If you go to our county courthouse you have to go through a metal detector and nothing close to a weapon of any kind is not allowed.

I watched some of a live feed from there and there wasn’t much going on, thankfully. It will be interesting to see how all those media types that were there find stories in this.



Why do you hate America?


I took off tomorrow and Friday. Monday’s a holiday. I get five days before I have to go back.

I haven’t taken a day off since November and we’ve been busy AF. Most of the time my job is frustrating and hard to keep up with expectations, but I love my coworkers.


Enjoy. I’m doing the same to celebrate my son’s 13th birthday.

But tonight, I’m drinking top shelf and skipping my happy pills.


Enjoy the long weekend! I took off Tuesday for a 4-day weekend. I plan on doing jack shit that day.


We’ve gotten the ducks moved outside. They love it! Survived their first night. It’s been hot and humid here, so I think they’re enjoying taking a dip as they please.

We kept the dog outside with them last night. He looks like a pit, but sounds like a hound so he’d sound the alarm on any intruders.

Our barn cat is terrified of them, and has been stressed so I think she’s conned her way into being an indoor cat.



Good article about the new Steve Earle album and the new DBT album:


Memorial Day Fail.


This live t-shirt cutting is pretty badass


You got old, bub.




Did you move to Florida?

Well, we’re having to put our other cat down. I’m a mess. She was the only cat I’ve had that liked me and I liked it. Despite frontline plus and a sesestro collar, a tick managed to get on her and bite her, so the vet suspects she came down with bobcat fever.

I selfishly decided to have them try fluids and antibiotics for the next 24 hours to see if there’s any change.

I know they were barn cats, but I started letting this one come in after her sister got sick. I don’t know what kind of freakish ticks we have, or that bobcats would be this comfortable getting close to our house. We have woods behind us; but they’re not super thick and lead to the people behind us house.


I think it is a bad year for ticks for whatever reason. I’ve found a few of them on my and got them before they got burrowed in… it is concerning, since we’ve had two neighbors come down with Lyme disease. One died and the other had very severe mental and physiological problems as a result and I believe went to Germany to be treated for it.
