Not Nice

That would be our day today.  Witness:

The forecast at the bottom o' the graphic sez it all.  I had to go retrieve two o' my verandah chairs from in front o' the neighbor's place earlier today on account o' the wind, which has been pretty danged fierce at times.  It's really too bad about the wind because it's a nice day, otherwise.

I had an ideer about today's Happy Hour soundtrack but it seems like I've done the exact same tune before... and recently, too.  That whole "apolitical" thing seems to be a common and frequently occurring meme around here, as a casual search o' EIP reveals.  I should clarify that by sayin' I'm not entirely apolitical in that I still keep current with politics and the news, such as it is.  It's just that I don't want to talk about politics all that much on the blog, which would amount to preaching to the choir for the most part.  Yeah, we all know Obama's a frickin' idiot and if you haven't figured that out by now my two cents ain't gonna persuade you one way or another.  I feel pretty much the same way about the other so-called issues o' the day, like gay marriage (who really gives a damn?), Afghanistan (just get the Hell out and leave them to kill themselves), Iran (nuke 'em, if push comes to shove. Or let the Israelis do it.), Syria (not our fight.  Shut UP.), and so on... ad nauseum.

I find talking about beer, cigars, hockey, and the weather to be much more pleasant.  YMMV, of course.

And now to pop open a beer, put fire to the end o' a cigar, and think about what we're gonna listen to today.


  1. Buck - good summary of the political landscape; I couldn't agree more.


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
