A bit of this 'n that nonsense


Been having dreams the past 3 nights about washing my hair. WTF?

In other news, my younger brother Bill (who is mentally disabled yet still worked hard at jobs all his life; retired now after open-heart surgery and other problems) has won a huge state trophy for winning chess tournaments.

Bill is going to turn 57 (I think) on March 5 ~ then, on March 7, I will be (eeek) 60!
Does not seem real. No. No.

I keep thinking I'm still not yet 20 and disco still hasn't arrived.

I have dismissed from my mind all the scabby nasty scunge culture that has proliferated since that time
(so-called "musics" like metal and rap and all that hideous bang-bang-bang shouty noise).


I wanna go back!

Interesting prediction by TV's McCloud / Gunsmoke's Chester


    There will come a time … when civilized people will look back in horror on our generation and the ones that preceded it:

    the idea that we should eat other living things running around on four legs, that we should raise them just for the purpose of killing them!

    The people of the future will say “meat-eaters!” in disgust and regard us in the same way we regard cannibals and cannibalism.

          ~ Dennis Weaver (1924-2006)

Sure, those crease-free, drip-dry synthetics
were easy-care, but they didn't "breathe,"
so they made you sweat like a pig!
