    You know it's a good thing we can't see beyond today, it really is.

    Can you imagine, what if you could actually see that gal you're courting, then see either a happy life ahead, or maybe that she ran off with the mailman? What if you knew what people were actually thinking? Honey, will you marry me. Answer, of course I will! Then, you heard what she was...

    Mother's day, Josh Turner, and me.

    Okay, this is what's cool about living with my wife who has kids who adore her. When she gets to go out to a nice restaurant for any number of special occasions, old Mr. Tag Along gets to horn in on it. On Mother's Day we were guests of the kids at a nice restaurant, then she got some goodies...

    Found an old friend.

    Yesterday, I thought of an old friend I had not heard from in several years. For some reason I decided to do an internet search of his name, and low and behold I found a long, and well written obituary from a couple of years ago. They had a great pic of him, I strongly suspect his daughter...

    Anyone use Offerup?\

    Anyone use Offerup to sell a guitar? If you sell for cash in person, are there fees to Offerup, and are you supposed to collect sale tax? If I understand from reading their instructions, you pay fees IF and or WHEN you ship something. Any Offerup users here, and how did you like it if you...

    Strange day with my sweetie pie.

    Yesterday morning my wife says how about we run down to the Skechers store? I want to get me a new pair of shoes. I said okay but was thinking, where on earth will she put another pair of shoes? Anyway, the Skechers store is on a main artery through the city, so we got there and did some...

    Just an observation, purely anecdotal, no science involved.

    My niece is visiting my mountain man brother-in-law for only a couple of days, then has to return to Oregon where she lives. I could see we weren't making any headway trying to hook up, and I knew both my niece and my wife wanted to see each other since it's been a couple of years since they...

    Ben kind of absent, sort of, but...

    A while back, I mentioned my sis-in-law won $10,000, well I guess every cloud has a black lining. My wife's brother, the jackpot winner's husband went to the doctor to have a lump looked at that turned out to be cancerous. My sis-in-law and her husband beat it out here from Arkansas, and the...

    Last night, I had a look at the past, and maybe the future.

    Right after finishing dinner last night, I got a call from a number I didn't recognize, I paused, but went ahead and answered it. To my surprise it was my mountain man brother-in-law. I will refer to him as JL for the duration of this post. Anyway, he was calling from the local heart hospital...

    Tom Brady has announced that due to the uproar against his retiring on the TDPRI Bad Dog, is not going to retire.

    The many fans of Tom Brady here on the Bad Dog will be elated to find that he, mainly due to input from members of this august body, is going to play for the Bucs again next year. That is all, enjoy!

    The Player's Championship is so loused up I can't watch it, and I'm a huge fan.

    The powers that be moved the event to March for the very reasons it's so loused up! The PGA wanted to have the weather become a part of the tournament like it is in the Opens played in Europe. Well, they got their wish, FIVE inches of rain in two days. 30 mile an hour winds where the rough is...

    Your caution can come back to haunt you.

    Back before, before, well you know. My wife as usual was stocking up on groceries. One day, I thought, maybe I should stock up on something I like, so I purchased many, many tins of Vienna Sausage in Bourbon barbecue sauce. Moving forward, that has been quite a while back, and you know that...

    I donated to a cat shelter my wife says she will NEVER let me forget it!

    It's very warm here today, first thing after breakfast I ran down to Dick's Sporting goods and picked up a club I had repaired then came home. Then momma and I took Alex in for a bath and general grooming haircut. As we were leaving, a poor old lady was manning (womaning?) a station collecting...

    Cargo ship carrying cars sinks.

    We had a thread about a cargo ship that was carrying a number of expensive cars being on fire. It was then being towed, now it has sunk. I can't imagine the financial and environmental impact that this will have, bad deal all around.

    A tale of two pillows.

    I wrote a while back about doing a back flip down the stairs at a movie theater. Ever since that event, I have though sleeping alright, not felt like I ever really got rested. We have so many pillows around here, my wife thought I was nuts wanting to try another pillow because my neck seemed...

    There have been threads about hearing loss, but this is kind of different.

    I have no doubt that I have hearing loss, but having said that, I can understand all of my golfing buddies out on the golf course. I hardly ever have to ask my son to repeat anything, but THE WIFE! Now that's an altogether different thing. My wife can hear butterflies milling around in the...

    How you view people physically:

    I don't know if I can convey this or not. When I was young, I accepted people at face value. When I came into life's play, there were a number of players already here on the stage, and I tried to fit in as best I could. When I was young, there were old people, and kids, and big kids. I didn't...

    Another of my relatives hit the jackpot yesterday!

    While we over at my son's house watching the Super Bowl, my wife got a text, and a pic from her brother who had gone to Lofland for a weekend with his wife. It showed a pic of the slot his wife was playing she had hit it for Ten Thousand dollars! They had to cough up twenty-four hundred for...

    System seems to be working.

    A while back, I mentioned that we ordered a new dishwasher, and that it was going to take a couple of months to get here. Sure enough, they called me last Friday, and set up an appointment to install the dishwasher this morning. The guy was on time, got it in right away, and everything went as...

    Little Rayan in Morrocco did not survive.

    We saw on the news last night where a little boy had fallen into a well in Morrocco last Tuesday. For more than a hundred hours, rescuers attempted to free him with excavating equipment. The reports are, that the child didn't make it through the ordeal. I am sorry for all involved, most of...

    I found a tear in the Matrix:

    A little while back I posted a pic of my wife's tape fix of the toilet paper roll holder in the bathroom. Then I posted a pic of where I fixed it properly. It has worked fine since I put it back together. HOWEVER, I came across a small container of spackle that I bought to repair the toilet...

    Took my little boy to the airport this morning, he's bound for Chicago!

    My little boy thinks he's a middle-aged grown man with a very responsible work position. I still see him as my little boy, and after losing my oldest, his brother, I'm even more inclined to worry when he travels. He's been all over Europe, did a stint in Ecudor, and not too long ago went to...
