Gluon will do most anything for a Higgs Boson Biscuit. I bribed with one to move the weather south, meaning Utah, and Gluon got overexcited.

Now I get to visit and electrocardiologist AND VA psychiatrist (to determine if I’m as nuts as people think, I guess).

Next Monday we’re off to see Dylan — sorry, Dillon. The town In Montana, not the Bob or the Thomas. This four day trip is my practice trip for two weeks in July when my youngest nephew, the Wisconsin Rabbit Ranger, gets married in Champagne — er, Champaign (the town in Illinois, not the drink).

Rap, your doctors all must have an up-to-date edition of the PDR; you're probably keeping them busy comparing side effects and avoiding harmful interactions. I posted a meme on FB a while back about a little pill box becoming part of the older adult's routine. I suspect you have at least one by now. Stay safe!

We've had so much rain in Texas this year we've almost reached last year's total half-way through this year. 27.5" as of two days ago (it rained again last night) and last year we got 29.3". No wonder there are weird mushrooms popping up all over the place. Now where was this rain supposed to end up? We need to have Gluon give the jet stream a shove and move it over some.

My 90-year-old recent house guest is waiting for her new pair of glasses to arrive in the mail, so she can go renew her driver's license. Until they arrive she's only driving to the gym or the store. [slaps forehead] The new glasses aren't that different from the old, so why the hesitancy to get the license is a puzzle. Maybe they do the vision test each time now after 80?

Good luck with the drive, Rap! (Have you done any driving out back beyond the house, with a golf club and some of the balls that have come across the fence?)

I spared myself about three hours of torture yesterday by NOT driving to Dallas. The party was for a friend who spent five days at my house earlier in the week so it wasn't like we hadn't had a chance to visit already. I'll drive west from here happily, but east, nope. Just nope. (Amon Carter had a rivalry going with Dallas and always packed his lunch when he went there so he didn't even need to spend money eating out. I have more-or-less adopted that policy and just don't go there. Every single time I seem to end up following an impaired driver on a high-speed interstate highway under construction.)

MOM, it's time to set up Gluon's taxi service. I bet she could have whisked me to that party in a nanosecond.

And Mom? I went out target shooting yesterday (.22 at 50 feet) and hit the 9 or 10 ring 22 times out of 23 standing. Pretty good for someone who hasn't touched a firearm for 9+ months. Then I went home. That was all I wanted to do, so see how the surgeon messing with my brain might have affected some of my fine motor function. And today I WENT OUT DRIVING!! Not alone, but I did the driving and didn't hit anybody or anything!

Then I came home and did the laundry and cooked supper.

6. LACTOMANGULATION (lak' to man gyu lay' shun)n. The act of manhandling the "open here" spout on a milk container so badly that one has to resort to the 'illegal' side.

The easier definition of this is when the child you nurse at home is riding in a tummy pack in the grocery store and they're trying to break through your shirt and bra to nurse while in a grocery store. (Throw a small blanket over the shoulder and head of the child and let them have access and no one in the store is the wiser.)

Katagelasticism is a psychological condition in which a person excessively enjoys mocking others. Katagelasticists actively seek and establish situations in which they can laugh at others (at the expense of these people). There is a broad variety of things that katagelasticists would do—starting from harmless pranks or word plays to truly embarrassing and even harmful, mean-spirited jokes. They would be of the opinion that mocking others is part of the daily life and if others do not like being laughed at, they should just fight back. For katagelasticists, it is fun mocking others and there is almost nothing that might hinder them from doing so. For them, some people might even provoke getting mocked. This condition often makes it difficult for sufferers behave on social media.

however some deserve mockery

The firemen and police left a half hour ago. It all started by leaving the car interior lights on. I accidentally hit the switch when I opened the sunroof days ago. I have seen episodes of airplane disasters when the pilot hit the wrong switch. I didn't expect I would do the same.

This morning the door opened but it would not start, dead battery.
I could call AAA and get a jump but I thought if I waited when it was 90 degrees it might start this afternoon. So when I went out an hour ago the door would not even open. Aha a tow truck driver taught me how to unlock the door if disabled due to an attempted break-in or dead battery. There is a secret key slot at the rear of the car that opens the trunk and from there a hidden cable that can be pulled to open the door.

It all worked so now I could unlatch the hood. I was feeling pretty smart when I sat down. Muscle memory was closing the door when my brain said don't do that. Click. I was now locked in a small 90 degree car with no horn or phone. The windows were sealed but by lying down and kicking it I could jam a pair of scissors and umbrella in the crack to get an inch of air by bending the window outward. I was winded and hot from the kicking so I took of my shirt. Eventually my neighbor was unloading her kids when she heard my yell for help. She called the fire dept and I gave my info through the small window opening.

I heard the sirens when the first lady cop arrived. I explained how to find the secret cable to unlock the door while she held a window breaker. It worked and I explained to the firemen how she had opened the door and thanked them all. She wanted to know how I knew about the secret cable and I explained about the tow truck driver. I thanked the neighbor and went in the house. My wife was none the wiser wearing her noise cancelling headphones and in a meeting about ribosomic DNA.

But...I have a friend who is a legal trapper and supports his family partially by the pelts he sells and the money he makes trapping for various ranchers. He's very ethical and may have another suggestion. I'll ask him.

We have a good sprinkler system and good sprinkler techs. We do NOT have good weather or control over tiny earthquakes which barely move a seismograph needle. Or rodents that live underground and gnaw on plastic sprinkler pipes and whom I shall feed a poison dinner as soon as I am able.

Yes, I shall be certain that what I use is well underground and that the corpses are not when they might be eaten by the various hawks, owls, eagles, and other critters who frequent the golf course behind the house. Oddly enough, the cops take a dim view of shooting in the city limits, even with an air rifle (BB gun).

I'd trap them, but releasing them out in the national forest is nearly certain death for them anyway. I've checked before and our animal control bunch doesn't deal with moles, voles, skunks, feral cats, and certain others.

I've helped several friends with the systems the cable or phone company left behind, usually with setting up a booster or extra ports for the router.

If I ever get the house leveled (right now it is at its most level time of the year, the soil is moist and the cracks have almost disappeared in the walls and at the ceiling edge) I'll put in a sprinkler system. That I will diagram and supervise because too often those sprinkler guys just wing it. (Neighbors up the street paid for a high dollar system only to find later that they put in a cheap set of buried hoses and such, workmen long gone along with their cash).

MOM should have Gluon train to help with this stuff, I bet a duckdog would be great at digging and working out the water end of things.

So far today I have spent better that five (5) hours installing a new Netgear Nighthawk MESH network system here in the house. The sprinkler people come out, replaced the bent pipe comprising the top rail of the back fence, dug out and replaced TWO breaks in the main sprinkler line in the back yard, and replaced a busted sprinkler head.

I had planned to do other things today that mess with routers, satellites, IP addresses, and suchlike nonsense. Of course, neither had I planned to do what the sprinkler guys did. I had hoped to read and nap.

Like MOM, like daughter:

Let's head back up to the top.

It ain't the sixties but there are still some young people who care and believe they can change the world. After our leaders like JFK, RFK and MLK were assassinated, today there are leaderless collectives of dissent. However, there has been enough disinterest and old-time religion to turn the clock back on women 200 years. There are more guns than peace signs and more fascists than progressives in the House. There are more mass shootings than Taylor Swift songs, and more extinctions than politicians.

I was away for three days.

Since the ophthalmologist I've been seeing for 20 years has retired, I had an appointment today with another one (who worked with the first and has his records). HOWEVER, he is in a practice of ophthamology only -- he can't prescribe glasses. Sooo...I have an appointment with another person who can (who also worked with my original eye doctor) at the end of May, unless there's a cancellation and they can work me in. Fortunately, the optician is still the same in the same place so getting new specs isn't a problem (save for the cost).

This is the first time in my life I've run into this situation.
