They have fallen off and that frustates me. I enjoy scribbling down some random words of “wit”, entertainment or even venting. It’s often relaxing or humorous for me. The problem is I have all of these GREAT blog ideas when I am away from the computer. I could blog about this, that or the other thing – but I dont remember when I am sitting at the computer. Bleh…
This past weekend I spent 4 days in “Mayberry”. That’s where my in-laws live. It’s a strange place that never really seems to change. Some know it as Mt. Airy, North Carolina. I like the place and all… but a quick trip down Main Street can leave a guy pondering a lot of odd things. Maybe that’s just me… but one thing I noticed was how nice the town is kept. The homes, the yards… Andy Griffith must be proud.
We had a GREAT Thanksgiving. If you’ve never had a Turduken – I’d give it a go! I really enjoyed it. I thought the meat was excellent. The kids were all wonderful – good food, good family, good fun!
While I was there I met a woman named “Libby-May”. We had a brief conversation on the elevator. She told me her husband had been in the hospital. I said “Oh no, I hope he is ok”. She said “He isn’t”. A few minutes later paramedics were bringing him home. I saw him and knew he wasn’t well. The man looked very sick and even a bit scared. Libby-May’s husband passed away 2 days later. For some reason, this little “exchange” has me a little rattled. I don’t know why – I had to say something as I think I will forever remember the look on his face as he was getting wheeled back to his Condo.
I’d also like to say that I don’t think campaigning politicians should be exempt from no-call lists. With the whole country watching the Georgia run-off, I can’t count the number of calls we got. I even got a call from the maveric, Sarah Palin. For the love of pearl – leave us alone! I will never a) buy crap because you called me b) change my vote because you called me c) be nice to you if you are telemarketting and call me when I am on a no-call list. To all the telemarketers out there – I do not like getting calls from you. GO AWAY!
Wow… this had the good, the bad and the ugly… Maybe I should have waited until I was more awake? This makes me laugh, maybe it will make you laugh too!
