A Quandary: Derby Day falls on Cinqo de Mayo.

crap

Mint Juleps or Margaritas?
Mintaritias?
Margajuleps?

I need some help here.
Oh yeah, Derby is circa 5:30 CDT on NBC.

Proposed: We need a way to "like" comments to a post.

Like reddit.
Or "not like", for that matter.
Do you agree, or not?
Weigh in.

On the military and drugs: My experience.

Sometimes the military does what is possibly in your best interest, but also in THEIR best interest.

In the late 60's, as a pilot in the Alabama Air National Guard, I participated in a joint services exercise in Puerto Rico.
I flew down on our C-54 transport.
I flew an RF-84/F back to Birmingham.

It was about a 6 hour flight in a very cramped cockpit.
Our fuel tanks didn't have the range, so we refueled off of KC-135 (Boeing 707) tankers.


This is kinda what it looked like to me.


Before we left Ramey AFB in PR, our flight surgeon gave us two small envelopes. One was red and one was blue.
"Take the red one an hour before you land.
Take the blue one after the chocks are in and you're out of the aircraft."
OK, Doc.

The red pill was obviously some kind of amphetamine.
It was a long flight in cramped quarters and the refueling added another layer of stress.
Did I mention that if you were unable to hook up for some reason you were way out over deep water with no place to land?
Yeah.

Boy, I was sharp as a tack when I landed.
Stokin'.

The blue pill was a downer.
Possibly a barbiturate?
Washed it down with a few beers ( ) and slept for 12 hours.

It was good for them.
No crashed planes.
And good for me.
No crashed plane.
"For the good of the service" was what we called it.


tRump may be world's (universe's/eternitie's?) luckiest man. North Korea nukes.

So Un's nuke test site has collapsed. Kaput.
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/apr/26/north-korea-nuclear-test-site-collapse-may-be-out-of-action-china

So of course he's willing to negotiate a 'cease testing' now.
And THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES is COMING TO HIM!
Meeting places have been narrowed down to Singapore or "Mongolia".
So THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES COMES TO HIM.
This is HUGE for Asian culture, especially North Korea.
The 'most powerful leader in the world' will come to him.

And the Dumbass will get and take ALL the credit for bringing world peace.
If he gets a fucking Nobel I'm just gonna binge drink for a few weeks.
crap

Free coasters. At Lowe's.

We were looking at some pretty rugged indoor/outdoor carpeting for our small home 'office/study/place where the computer is'.

Lowe's has racks and racks of 2" sq. carpet samples.
They make great drink coasters.
I now have a matched set of six in charcoal gray.

Cooking with Clara: Depression era cooking

This lady is a treasure. I'm sure she's long gone by now, but it's great that her cooking videos live on.

My letter (email) to Bradley Byrne

Yeah, I really sent this just now.
R, 1st Dist.
What can I say?
I'd had a few drinks.


Hi.
Haven’t heard from you in a while.
Hope you’re OK.

I guess there’s enough going on in D.C. to keep you pretty busy, let alone what’s happening here at home.
Boy, President Trump just seem to be stepping into one pile of poo (or pee) after another.
That guy sure is unlucky.

The missus said that he should dial it back on the tweets.
I told her that’s part of his God given 1st Amendment Rights.
She said it has nothing to do with God.
I guess she’s right. She goes to church a lot.
Anyway...

That Stormy Daniels. Isn’t she a caution? I swear.
She’s not invited to any White House functions, is she?
I don’t think you’d want to her and Melania in the same room.
As a prominent past president would say, “Wouldn’t be prudent.”
I bet the fur would fly.

Did you know that Kay Ivey is running for governor?
I’m serious.
Somehow she thinks she had something to do with Governor Dr. Doctor Bentley being ”relieved of his responsibilities”.
(I think that’s how the official press release read.)
And she’s got a TV commercial running that really bad mouths Washington D.C.
I guess nobody told her that a big part of the money we need to run the state comes from...you guessed it...Washington D.C.

Listen, speaking of her, do you know ANYTHING about her?
Boy, we sure don’t.
She’s like The Stealth Candidate.
Married? Divorced? Widowed? Gay? Straight? Kids? Grandkids?
She has no history.

All we know is that she hates Washington and “libruls”, loves her some Confederate statues and monuments, and won’t debate any other Republicans running for governor because she’s too busy throwing a spade of dirt at a ground breaking or throwing out the first pitch at a Birmingham Barons’ baseball game.

OK, this has gone on too long.
Just one more question: Do you think Roy Moore will run for the Republican nomination for governor?
If so, do you think he’ll win?
Would you support him?
OK, that’s 3.
Sorry.

All the best,
'trof'

So...Hannity is one of Donnie Two-Scoops "boys".

Loyal to the Don, he was free to call on Cohen for legal advice and opinions for no charge.
"He never billed me."
"I just asked advice about real estate."
Hey, we're both Don's boys, right?

I'll give The Donald plugs and support on my TV show and I'll get free legal advice.
You scratch my back and I'll scratch yours.
Cozy, cozy.

<Gomer voice> "Way-yul SUH-PRIZE, SUH-PRIZE!

The 'West' has been trying to domonate/subjugate/control the Middle East for 200 years.

The Brits, the French, the Germans, the Russians.
Even the Spanish and the Portuguese have taken a crack at it.
All have failed.
Miserably.

Because we no longer live in a tribal society, we don't understand what that entails.
As long as the tribal culture exists in the middle east (and it has thrived for CENTURIES) they will never want or "need" the sort of 'democratic' government that we keep trying to force on them.

But of course then WE come along and surely we know better than all the others because we ARE the bestest most badass country ever and we're smarter than all the rest put together and...here we are.

Yeah, I know this is old news for most of you.
But it just pisses me off that MY native land is too damn stupid and arrogant to
1/ LEARN from others' examples of abject failure OR
2/ Even learn FROM OUR OWN MISTAKES.

I quote Rudyard Kipling:
"Now it is not good for the Christian’s health to hustle the Aryan brown,
For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”
