A Seinfeld post!

I've moved more timber lately than old Paul Bunyon himself...how'd you like to have that last name, Bunyon, can you imagine being in high school with that name?  My foot hurts just thinking of it! I kind of wished for a Big Blue Ox to drag branches for me, instead I had the feeling I was the big blue ox rather than Paul with his bad feet!
Daily we have the storms still; today I have not seen the sun...at least its cooler, 94 and now just after sunset its storming and the lightening is bold bright white, the thunder is cracking, and the rain is blowing like a hurricane! I'm sure it will be a 4 inch rain!  We had 2 big storms yesterday one at 4 pm and another at 12 midnight...so much rain!!  The dogs are so scared I closed the bedroom door to keep them quiet, we do get rain this time of year, but it's worse than normal. SO much violence! Trees break, the rain erodes the ground...it is just scary! I'm about to go hide in the corner and pant! I will have to go out in the morning and survey the newest damage!  I have my trailer full once more!


Today Im listening to Seals and Crofts again, this time it's the Summer Breeze album  c-1972. I swoon over their harmonies....just so tight and wonderful as a wanna be singer and guitar player,  its all about timing and pitch.  Since freaking up my left wrist I can no longer play the guitar!! I was never really good at it but it was something I enjoyed doing! So I can get my kicks by listening to great guitar players and wonderful voices.  Acoustic all the way. 


I could play this record till the needle wears a groove thru it...love their work. Wonder what ever became of those guys...(OK Google)

"... they both became fanatically religious to Bahaullah!   Crofts lives in Costa Rico on a coffee plantation and Seals is in Texas! And CDs of their music basically do not exist"..its Vinyl or I guess you could download it online.  
Well I'll be!  I think I do have some of their stuff on cassette tape.

My project today after the umpteenth limb pick up this morning, was this, I have a chair, it needed a new seat...the problem with these, what I call Parson's Chairs, is the seats used to be cane and that was broken through when I found them!! Long ago I webbed the seats and upholstered them... but the wood was so weak it didn't hold well one seat bottom fell through when my sis brought her X-Navy boyfriend for Christmas dinner.  We laughed, he was embarrassed I told him don't be it was bound to happen.  So I replaced the one chair seat, last yr maybe? Finally got around to doing the other..I ripped off the cover and cut 3/8" plywood to fit the shape of the bottom, and covered it with the last bit of this fawn colored fabric.  I'm just not in the mood to try and do the entire chair, so at least now they match again! I noticed these days they do that mix the fabric up, so it's very hip!





A friend of a friend  on Facebook called me a Bigot 'cause I said D. Trump was mentally unstable.  He said I was not a licensed psychologist! Maybe not but I sure know a nut when I see one!  Wow didn't see that coming, so my response was,  "nope I'm not a licensed psychologist,  just a registered voter"  I know I should have done the adult thing, and just posted an emogie with it's tongue sticking out...HA!!  :O~
 ...kind of  disenchanted with the state of our World anymore.  I read that the GOP is trying to turn all the Federal lands back over to the States.  So I'm thinking YEP, I will check out Canada, they seem pretty stable up there ...may as well see what it is like, less storms, free health insurance, all unexplored territory for me to ramble in...I wonder what is the first step to immigrating to a new Country?  My X was an immigrant so I am all for immigration to find a better life.  I wonder if Paul Bunyon was Canadian, I've never seen a Blue OX in my travels here...

A time machine would be nice right about now I'm trying to think when we went wrong, was it with Adam or Eve? Here is something I read...In the beginning there was Adam and Eve and they had 2 sons...Cain and Abel, and we are all descended from them? I don't know about you but I only see one woman's name in that group! Just sayin'..

So there you have it folks, a post about nothing; ...Fables, Politics, Religion, and Sex!! OH and a chair seat! 






PEACE

  1. Becoming a citizen of Canada is easier said than done, and extremely expensive. Especially at our age! Your post made me laugh out loud! I, too, think Trump is a nutcase, and I keep waiting for the broadcast that confesses to the public that he's a plant and it's all been a big ruse!

    1. I wish that would happen it would help this country heal its divide which he has made so WIDE--and it's getting wider each day that he remains upright! Expensive? hmmm like they make you pay admission? Well Guess I'm stuck here or make a move to some little town in ND and when some A** politician gets to me I can just drive over the border and pretend I'm Canadian!'

  4. I had to listen to Seals and Crofts on You Tube as I must admit I had never heard of them. Very similar to Crosby Stills and Nash type music. It looks like Trump is now a reality, I don't think the world will be a safer place with him in the White House. Should he get there I only hope that the White House administration will be able to reign him in. I'm sure there will be some people who will move away but its a drastic move. Its a bit like Brits moving to Europe because we have voted to leave the E U. Usually the vast majority of voters actually want the middle way and hopefully that's where you, and us, will end up.

    1. I have at least one Cosby Still and Nash on Vinyl, enjoy them too...they describe Seals n Crofts as soft rock, its their song writing and harmonies I really enjoy. YES I really didn't think the GOP could drag anything more horrible than Sarah Palin out from under rocks but they sure did!! BUT he will NOT WIN! The Quiet Minorities will elect the next POTUS not the loud and obnoxious right.

  5. I think maybe you got our monsoon season going on cause we sure haven't had much since that last big nasty one. We had some light rain and today thunder but nothing much in water.

    I like the chair and the contrast in the solid and pattern nice job.

    Its your blog and if you want to speak your mind then go ahead if someone doesn't like what your write then they shouldn't read it. Its that Good Bye Falecia thing haha.

    This Trump thing is just unbelievable how did this happen? Of course I'm still trying to figure out how Obama got in a second term

    1. Hi Jo, I've never been good at biting my tongue and at my age I don't think that will change..lol I will just be glad when the Presidential race is over and done.

  6. I like reading your stream-of-conscience ramblings -- it's as if I were sitting in one of your chairs (hopefully not breaking it) and chatting away. I'm getting real close to biting the bullet and going off FaceBook because of all the crap during election season -- and it is such a time suck. My granddaughter can send me her kids pictures by EMail, that is all I would really hate to miss.

    I'm petrified about Trump, even though most people I love keep reassuring me that it will never happen (like you said in one of your comment answers bove).

    1. Sorry I did not see this till now I've been on and off fast trying to beat this data problem, yes I'm losing my lust for Facebook, some friends of friends are rude Trump supporters, I get so ticked at them...I wanna scream! No the other side is not perfect but he is too radical to be in such a powerful position!
