"I could perhaps like others have astonished you with strange improbable tales; but I rather chose to relate plain matter of fact in the simplest manner and style; because my principle design was to inform you, and not to amuse you."

Jonathan Swift, Gulliver's Travels

One book? in A small but passable life.

I finished reading “The Ministry for the Future” by Kim Stanley Robinson. That’s one book read for the year so far. We had our second eighty degree day of the year a couple of days ago. The weat...


Sunday I Ubered (Uberd?) to the pot shop that is only 3.3 miles away. I found and purchased a 1/4oz of Lava Cake POP for $50. And it has taken so long for pot to be legalized that now I get a sen...


I knew it would come, just not when. I just put a deposit down on my Starlink! Supposed to start shipping to my area sometime mid to late summer 2021. I can’t wait to cancel my current almost no...


Daughter called this morning. She said it is cold back there in the Ozark’s. Right now at 4pm it is 18 degrees there and 72 degrees here. My afternoon napping while NPR drones on has been interr...


That’s a zero waste fail. I broke down all the boxes from amazon and the other shops I’ve ordered from over the last few months and slid them into one of the big boxes. The other big box I slid t...


My Sweetwater order arrived this afternoon. The FedEx driver looked like he wasn’t old enough to drive. Seriously. Two huge boxes. First one had the hard-case for the guitar. I don’t remember wha...


Well, at least for now. My last order arrived today. The Mueller stainless steel double-walled French press and the Bretani manual coffee grinder. They are both quality made, like works of art. T...

Winter? in A small but passable life.

I’ve heard there is winter somewhere. Here? Nope. Yesterday was our first 80 degree day of the year, coming in at 82. Today it was 81 degrees. Forecast to be cooler tomorrow at 71 degrees. I’ve ...


The other part of my amazon order arrived yesterday. Days earlier than stated. Again. I ordered two more items. They are supposed to be delivered on Friday, the same day as my Sweetwater order. ...


My Amazon order was split up again and the watch arrived yesterday, two days after I ordered it. That’s why I don’t pay for prime. I believe there is a fulfillment center about ten miles west of ...


Daughter found out that the EpiPen script is not covered by her insurance. They’ll pay for an emergency room visit and an EpiPen injection there though. She borrowed one from her mother. I hope s...


I Ubered (Uberd?) to the bank and to the post office today. I went across the street to the Chevron station to request the ride. This park with 1085 units and a crazy numbering system is a nightm...


I had already signed up, $99 for a year, on the recommendation of a Canadian friend, an interweb guru of sorts. Instacart. I tried it out this afternoon for the first time. I shopped for a bit mo...


Dumbfucks perpetrating dumbfuckery led on by King Dumbfuck himself. And then King Dumbfuck threw all the dumbfucks under the bus! You can’t make this shit up. The suggestion is to abolish the e...


With the government $600 in my account I went shopping again. I went to Sweetwater. I found a Yamaha acoustic guitar for $199. Out of stock. I found a Roland: Go 88-key portable piano on sale for...


Daughter was here for a week. My oldest niece and her daughter were here for a few days. They got everything done that was needed to be done. One pick-up load to charity. One pick-up load went ho...

Finally! in A small but passable life.

It only took thirteen days for the whole “Sell your car in ten minutes” fiasco. I dropped the car off Monday. Was told the “Instant Payment” should be in my account in two or three hours. I guess...


I always get a kick out of being accused of being a Democrat or Liberal. Especially when the accuser has no idea that the label is totally nonsensical, like all other labels are in modern politic...


I spent three or four hours on the phone with carvana on Saturday. My phone wouldn’t send the three pictures I needed to send (front and back of DL and odometer). The damn thing just kept saying ...


Okay, the car is exactly halfway paid off. Thirty months down, thirty months to go. So, for the next thirty months the cost will be $17.54 per day, or $122.78 per week (Monthly payment plus insur...


Mom’s trailer is cleaned out and organized. It is ready for Daughter and oldest Niece to sort and cart off the piles I’ve made. Stuff I would take to the Goodwill is all out in the carport and in...


December 4th, 2014. That was the start. I flew out here to check on Mom. Just to get a better picture of where she was at both physically and mentally. She was fine. I flew back home at the end o...


Mom died this afternoon. She went peacefully and quick. She had never woken up from the emergency surgery. I didn’t have time to be with her. But Nurse Ashley was there with her. Nurse Ashley is ...


Which do you want to hear first? Where did that question originate? All google seems to care about is the question, not the origin of the question. Daughter’s covid test came back negative. And s...


Daughter is still waiting at home for her covid test to come back. She’s still feeling the same. No better, no worse. I had a moment of financial weakness and ordered three items from my amazon w...
