The Captain is struggling to write these days.
Which is ironic since I just finished reading Tim Dorsey's latest book, "The Pope of Palm Beach".
It's about a writer.
But I was kinda disappointed with it...
The recent school shootings have sucked all the oxygen out of the room – everyone arguing over more guns or less guns – while few are actually concerned about the kids.
I’ve tried three times to write a new post and each time it has devolved into a rant about guns!
I’m sick of it! No more shootings! ...
On to lighter matters.
Who wants a drink?!?
Speaking of drinking, more of the Trump administration are resigning.
The apropos piratical phrase would be “like rats off a sinking ship!”
And Trumpf’s son-in-law Jared, who “has been leading the Israel peace effort” as an unpaid advisor to the President, just had his temporary security clearance lowered from “Top Secret” to “Secret” – which means he won’t have unfettered access to information about the Israel peace effort...
It’s raining here.
Perhaps that’s why the Captain is feeling blue today.
It has been raining a long time.
The Kentucky Dam has been hard at work in dealing with flood waters. Last week it was dumping 1.8 million gallons of water per second through its gates in preparation for the coming wave of run-off. This week the flow will be reduced and Kentucky Lake will rise 10 feet above summer pool.
I’m hoping The Tiki Hut remains afloat...
A dear friend was approved for ordination yesterday.
It’s been a long journey. We’ve shared a lot of it together.
But that is not my story to tell. Perhaps she will write about it at her blog site...
I’ve even been looking through “News of the Weird” to find something funny to write about.
A family recently “rescued” a Vietnamese Pot Belly Pig from an animal shelter. It was reported three months later that the family ate the pig.
They said they didn’t know how to take care of a pet pig.
And bacon is delicious!
Captain’s Note: The police did investigate and ruled that the pig was slaughtered humanely, so no charges were pressed.
Maybe it’s the cold medicine though.
For the last year-and-a-half the Captain has been suffering from sinus congestion. My voice sounds like there is a bucket over my head!
A trip to Readi-Care several months ago was fruitless. An Xray showed my lungs were clear. So the Doc gave me antibiotics, recommended an OTC nasal spray, and suggested I continue my regular allergy medicine.
“It probably won’t work,” he reassured me, “but let’s give it a try.”
But yesterday the congestion turned into an honest-to-goodness cold.
Thankfully not the flu...
Wait. Here’s an interesting story.
It was 33 years ago (Feb. 15th) that the movie “The Breakfast Club” was released.
I could have sworn it was longer ago than that.
I thought I was in junior high school when it came out. Turns out the Captain was finishing up college…
Thirty-three years ago…
