All bus rides are lousy. The last recorded pleasurable bus ride was taken by Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters about fifty years ago.

Hi, Mom!! I'm back at home. Yes, I saw family. No, I didn't eat too much. Yes, we had a lousy flight coming home and an even lousier bus ride.

Ewww. Quantum foam probably wouldn't do the lawn any good.

Gluon wouldn't need to pull those fence posts. Gluon would simply apply the leg humping skills mastered on Rap's trousers to the posts and they would dissolve into quantum foam.

Ah.... Another Black Friday, blissfully ignored. I did nothing different from what I would do on any other Friday, and didn't buy anything at any big box stores or online. Just had a nice lunch at the usual place, filled the gas tank, bought groceries. I barely even noticed it was Black Friday apart from the barrage of email messages reminding me. :D And they are still pouring in...

MOM, did you know that taking a fence apart can be as much work as building one? And once I have all of the wood down there are still steel posts in concrete footers to address. Too bad Gluon isn't around, I could use her help pulling those straight out of the ground.

Morning after apple pie, so did I. Don't you wish everyone did?
My wife does the Lininus Blanket project and only cleared the dining table sewing projects yesterday morning.

She does not yet know she's getting a new 'working' hot tub from Santa.
I found that mid winter hot tub trips are more enjoyable than summer.
Unless there is snow.

Good one, Don!

I had my traditional morning-after breakfast of apple pie. I have no intention of going anywhere. Since the dining table was cleared to set for the meal yesterday I can now use the surface to get started on various sewing and crafts projects that needed this space.

Even when she's at the bottom of the pile, Mom is head and shoulders above capitalistic concerns like Black Friday or Cyber Monday. But that's not to say she's totally divorced from consumer culture. She still likes hunting for bargains at Tuesday Morning, followed by dinner and drinks at Ruby Tuesday or TGI Friday.

My dog considers all other animals to be potential playmates. This is a trait that is rather intimidating to cats, squirrels, and the occasional deer fawn. "Playful" and "hungry" probably look pretty much the same to a cat when a seventy-pound dog is racing toward it at 30 MPH.

Of course Dachshunds prefer to poop on nicely mown lawns. Their bellies and associated parts are too low to the ground to go traipsing around in the woods without consequence. You'd shit on the lawn too if the one time you tried to do it in the woods you came home with poison ivy on your balls.

Our cat had kittens before we thought to get her spayed (long time ago - I was a teenager) - and I kept one of the kittens. When I was still living at Mom's home my cat came up to my room at night to sleep on my bed (she would start to scold if I was staying up too late). We also had a German shorthair pointer who got along fine with the cats. One night conditions were such that the dog was afraid (lightning, wind causing sparks on the electric pole outside the back of the house, etc.) that we deemed it prudent that she come upstairs and sleep in my room. The cat was So Pissed. As I was going to sleep the dog had curled on the foot of my bed and the cat sat on the floor in the dark glaring at the dog (the cat usually slept on my pillow). In the morning I found that she'd resolved the problem by curling up and sleeping against the dog.

Gluon has visited that really big planet with the little bug-eyed cats and reports that the dogs and cats there pay very little attention to one another. It's an unforeseen byproduct of an experiment in weaponized dissonant sound waves. Prior to the misguided experiment, dogs and cats there behaved pretty much the same as on Earth: they despised each other. But after being bombarded with the wayward sound waves, they began to ignore each other. Instead, both species began to channel their aggressions toward members of the native equivalents of our crocodiles and alligators. While this accidental adaptation has led to harmonious relations between dogs and cats, it has also resulted in a bunch of happy and well-fed crocodilians.

The more life forms master time the more successful their life becomes.
Which is different than the time of your life. :^/
Evolution selects for the best time managers.
Which is different than those damn time efficiency experts.

Now maybe you don't imagine alien cats on other planets, but suppose you were a sci fi writer for 'space cats' and if planet Feline were twice as big as Earth, the kitties would be 4 times smaller to cope with the 'extra' gravity and TIME itself would move slower, allowing for whopping life spans. If this super Earth orbited a red dwarf star in a goldilocks zone their eyes would evolve as big as possible for the low light. Perhaps they would slowly grow so clever as to write about the adventures of giant hot Earth cats that would live quick and die young.
Now space dogs (Annubi) have loyalty issues and like Earth dogs, do not see eye to eye with cats.

The cat who has recently showed up at our place can't tell clock time, but he's an expert at solar time. He stays gone all day, but comes meowing over his empty food bowl precisely at sundown. Then, I feed him, he hangs around for the night, and he leaves rather hurriedly when I let Miss Tina out of her kennel for her morning exercise. Somehow, I don't see harmonious dog/cat relations as being part of our near future.

Braintree, massachusetts
is named for the Essex town
of Braintree in the U. K.

And they don't know what Braintree means ...
the name is too ancient and varied.

In the Domesday Book of 1086,
the settlement is called Branchetreu.
This is before it had a market charter from the Bishop of London.

I dunno about Quincy, Massachusetts, I have my doubts.
I'm not a New England native, so I miss a lot of stuff.
I don't know how natives pronounce Quincy
(I presume it isn't "quonset").

But what I do recall is that the town of Quincy
isn't all that old by Massachusett standards;
nearby Braintree was there first,
in fact most likely
Quincy used to be part of Braintree
(which, now I think of it, is one heckuva name,
I ought to look it up...)

There's also a Quincy, Florida. It's near Tallahassee, on US 90, which was the primary east/west highway before Interstate 10 was built. It's one of those towns that sorta died when the Interstate was routed just a few too many miles away. Nowadays, hardly anyone goes there unless a major traffic accident on I-10 forces them to detour through the place. It's so dull and uninteresting that there are no known clever quips or anecdotes about it, and I'm not going to invent one. It just isn't worth the effort. I'm not sure if the people there pronounce "Quincy" in some idiosyncratic fashion, but I doubt it. Imagination is not exactly their strong suit.

Instead of cleaning house and getting ready for next week's holiday meal and family gathering, I spent today at the big box hardware stores buying fencing materials. Tomorrow I'll dig around in the garden and see if there are any sweet potatoes from over the summer. If not, I need to buy a turkey and sweet potatoes; otherwise, only a turkey. Typically, the sweet potatoes in my garden are mutant giants because I wait till the end of the season to dig.
