Left to my own ideas, I'd just use punji stakes -- heat treated for toughness and dipped in human poop. Maybe a barb on the insertion end. Or maybe one of those toe-popper land mines that just blow a leg off from the foot to the knee. But the people involved are wimps.

BWL you can put yourself in Rap's position of living out in the country when wandering bands of corona zombies are looking for shelter.
You can't kill them and you can't risk exposure so locking them up humanely, letting them eat a lovely last spread in an abandoned shed and allowing the cold to do the rest is the obvious solution.

If you have a better idea don't be selfish. I believe Rap is a genius.

Mom's recommendation is that Rap abandons his search for the ideal padlock and simply booby-traps whatever he was planning on putting locks on. The old string-tied-to-a-12 gauge's-trigger thing works dependably well and provides endless opportunities for imaginative variation involving creative use of pulleys, springs, weights, clamps, etc.

Or he could just spring for a pair of attack-trained Rottweilers.

And they have to fit a variety of hasps and chains!

Thank you, Mom.

MOM, I've been finding stuff out about the local Catholic churches! For instance, if you count all the exterior doors, including the double and triple ones, there are 52. There are also 5 garage doors and 1 garden gate. There are three outside entrances to the two churches and the school, these enter the basements. Gee, it's grand to have once been a genuine Physical Security Specialist! You get to do such exciting things.

I used to like pickled herring but apparently it does things to your breath. I tried not breathing after I enjoyed some but it caused comment.

On another note, I seem to have bone spurs in the bottom joint of my left thumb. They hurt, but I can't get drafted!

Pickled herring in wine sauce - a wonderful snack when eaten in moderation.

The knee is improving, according to the physical therapist, and the 2 months of workouts ahead of time give me a great edge on recovery as far as muscle tone. But as the one wearing the knee, I have to admit I'm tired of the compression sock things and the awkward moves that cause a flareup of bursitis in the hip.

The last couple of PT visits have concluded with me handing the spray bottle (water) to Katie and then lifting the cover from the dog door and letting the guys come in for a visit. The squirt bottle causes them to not be quite so pushy; for as little water as that thing puts out they still don't like it. And I've demonstrated my walker-dog-sweep move to keep them from jumping on me at the same time.

MOM's had more than her share of beer and wine since I'm forbidden from adding alcohol to the cocktail of stuff I'm on for the knee. She's going to have to walk off a little extra weight come spring. (Walking over to the Legion Hovel will give her some exercise, I guess.)

Actually, I like canned herring snacks. I prefer them over sardines.

It's those over-salted dried kippered herring things that are inedible. I don't even think they're fish. When fishermen's work boots get so nasty and stinky that they can't stand to wear them anymore, they slice them into strips and sell them as kippered herring.

Not a correctional facility, just an institution.

On the other hand, Mom is an institution.

Putting an institution in an institution is difficult, but not impossible. It's a bit like putting ten pounds of sugar in a five-pound bag. It's most easily achieved by curving space back on itself or similar judicious alteration of the space-time continuum.

Don't try this at home! Call a trained expert like Gluon.

It ends tomorrow, when all Catholics go to church and have an "X" put on their foreheads with the ashes of last Palm Sunday's blessed palms. Then Lent starts and all good Catholics follow the fasting rules and the diet is as follows:

    No more than one meal per day is permitted.
    Flesh meat, eggs, butter, cheese, and milk are forbidden.
    The meal was not allowed until after sunset.
    Alcohol is forbidden.
    During Holy Week, the meal consists exclusively of bread, salt,    herbs, and water.

Of course, Laetare Sunday allows you to have cheese and a small glass of bad beer or wine to break the monotony of Lent. Vatican II lightened this up and you're now allowed one small glass of skim milk per day if you're over 87.

Cars tend to follow the one in front of them in whiteouts and heavy fog; I had a friend who had a long driveway off of a state highway, and one evening he pulled in and had to tell all of the cars that followed him home to turn around and head back.

My driveway is too short for people to confuse it with a regular road but occasionally it could act as a boat launch when the creek rises.

Have you given your walker a name? Mine is called Hoppy. I had to get him when I broke my ankle because I also broke my wrist and couldn't grip crutches. I had to Velcro my lower arm to Hoppy so I could hop around on one foot.

I understand that if I ever need his services again, it may involve shuffling instead of hopping, but that makes no difference. He'll always be Hoppy to me. I wouldn't want a walker called Shuffley anyway.

I really don't need the walker, what I use it for is a general sweeping motion in front of me to chase the dogs out from underfoot. "Plow the road" is the fighter jet term that I've seen in movies; this is the terrestrial version.

Right now it is my friend - I tried anti-inflammatory last night instead of oxy at bedtime (because of the swollen knee) and it was the worst most painful night's sleep in a long time. And it didn't help the swelling. I had to wait six hours before the next dose of painkiller. And I've slept much of the day.

elo mom, I started the partisan prescription of 'Mr. Rodgers little helpers'. They cause folks to exude extreme kindness and have a blissful resignation to bad news without worry.
Side effects are ulcers and stomach cancer but
what do you expect from swallowing the bile of the world without some reaction? They are opiate FREE but contains 90% heroin.

The sister drug to Mr Rodgers helpers is for Republicans and is just plain anerobic steroids and amphtamines.

It has been illustrated many times that Trump's self-declared height is a special brand of BS. He's 6'1" at most, when you see him standing beside Obama and others all in the same type of shoes. Perhaps his waist is what is 75 inches.
