Back yard walk about, almost stepped on a rabbit. It showed an impressive rate of acceleration in escaping, a blur of white tail clear across the pasture and out of sight toward a gap in the fence.

Decided as the afternoon light was fading that as current weather reports promised rain over the next few days, I had better put effort into mowing the worst of the grass lots. This accomplished, I raked leaves in the front yard. I looked to the northwest, and the sky was pewter grey, Stowed the gear and got inside before the rain came along.

I've been watching the hashtags #nonbinary and #genderfluid on Twitter. I'm intrigued that there doesn't appear to be a population of older people, over 50 years of age,  that post to them. In fact, they're pretty much unrepresented completely. Wondering, it is a growing movement of young people only?

My relationship with alcohol is kind of odd. I wonder if I have an issue with the stuff.

During the periods where I use alcohol, I'm afraid to give it up. In the dead sober times, I'm afraid to start using alcohol again.

So, do I have an issue?

I'm a bit lost with this business of Trump making embarrassing speeches. Why don't they simply cut off the mike, shut the stage lights down, have the Secret Service hustle him out the door? I mean, this isn't a boon to the Republicans anymore, and it can't be helping the country.

I just can't believe in movie superheros, one reason being they do so much fighting. Who can keep up that pace for two hours? It's exhausting. In my whole lifetime, I'll not scrap nearly that often.

This is a rant I just posted Skype, I felt it good enough to repost here:

"I see my Men's Health magazine is in at the online service from the library

a big article presented called "Shred Your Abs"

who the hell wants to do that?

where do they get these titles from?

must be a title generator

they always find some lunk-head to present these things, and he or she usually has a stupid tattoo, often of a snake or something

and they dip themselves in baby oil

"Ugh! Ugh! We're gonna compleatly burn out your thighs! Ugh! Ugh!"

just give people a quiet, intelligent and knowledgeable person who can clearly explain who, what, when, where, why and how, with clear illustrations and/or video

no screamy stuff"

I'm thinking about competence these days.

This blog post from 'The Last Word On Nothing' has an interesting view on it:

I'm sure some wise person said something like this, but the idea occurred to me thus:

The traits and stories we attribute to our pets are so often alike those qualities we would like others to see in us.

Cool, grey day in the Comox Valley. Checked lottery tix, won nothing. Bought more. Will be out to supper tonight, planning on trying Jambalaya, a spicy Creole dish.

I don't think there's a basic aggravation greater than when one decides to have a wee, does the wee, does up one's trousers when sure it's done, then starts again with the wee-ing.

Oh, drill a hole in a board and pull me through, I'm not much good to anybody today.

Since the third week of June 2016, I've been feeling the call to return to examine the bones of a relationship that ended December 31st, New Year's Eve, 1980. As you may guess, it hasn't been a lovely experience.

"This is now. It's not then."

If only I hadn't been me.
