"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."

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...

Waiting. in A small but passable life.

Daughter called Saturday and said she had two of the symptoms, one being the tell-tale, the losing the sense of taste. She texted yesterday morning and said she was online trying to find a testin...




Drumpf has won more popular votes than any US presidential candidate in history, except for Joe Biden. But wait, there’s more. Drumpf is the first US presidential candidate in history to lose th...

Let It Go in A small but passable life.


I forgot to mention that last Thursday, the 5th, an all time record high for November was set at 99 degrees breaking the old record of 93 degrees. Many heat records were set this past year. Ther...


Karma, bitch!


It looks like Biden, so far, has Nevada by about 12,000 votes which would give him the 270. But, get this, he now has Georgia, so far, by about 1000 votes and Pennsylvania, so far, by about 7000 ...


All Biden needs is Nevada and to maintain the lead in Arizona. Drumpf can have the rest. Prop 207 passed here. Arizona has become the 13th state to legalize cannabis. I guess I called it right by...


Yesterday afternoon I dropped Mom off at her hairdressers and I wandered next door to the Goodwill store. I was told by Nikki that I had forty-five minutes to wait. I perused the aisles until my ...
