Then and Now


It’s amazing how 8 years in office aged this man.  I hope he can take a long golfing vacation some place warm.  I kind of wonder if he will sort of live a somewhat quiet life like Bush Jr. or if he will get engaged like Jimmy Carter.  I’m hoping it’s the latter versus the former.

Random Thoughts for Thursday Morning


I must have offended the Apple God yesterday with my comment about my phone.  Yes, I got to the train station this morning only to discover that my iPad had 2% of battery life left in it.  Two friggen percent!  It was fully charged yesterday when I left work.  I had to read the news on my iPhone.  Yanno, I don’t have them young eyes like some of you and that print is pretty small.  Ugh!

I finished prepping the bathroom walls and cleaned up as much as I could in there so I could put on the first coat of new paint on the walls.  Boogie asked me what the colour was called.  I told her it was “Caramel Toffee“.  She just smiled and said “Oh.  I thought is was Baby Poop Brown.”  Smart ass kid.

It’s yet another year that the Minnesota Vikings didn’t make it to the Super Bowl.  I told a couple fans in my office that they must be celebrating Jewish Passover instead.  They weren’t happy with that comment for some strange and unexplained reason.

Yea!  It’s tax season!

It’s the last full day in office for the POTUS.  I can’t help but wonder if we will seeing billboards come summer with a picture of President Obama with a big smile on his face and with a caption that reads “Do you miss me yet?‘  That or something like “From out of the past come the thundering hoofbeats of the great horse Silver! President Obama rides again!”  Yeh, maybe that one is just a wee bit over the top.

OK.  Time to get some work accomplished this morning.  Feel free to comment or leave a silver bullet so I can ask “Who was that masked commenter?”
