Five for Friday


It’s that time of week once again where I do battle with my brain for the ultimate control of my universe.  My brain has been winning thus far.

1. It’s that time of year once again when I surrender to the inevitable that the summer is almost gone once again from this part of the Hundred Acre Wood.  I’ve already cleaned out my green bean bed in my garden, my green pepper plants are slowing down and the leaves in my pumpkin patch are turning yellow.  The southern winds will soon be traded for winds out of the north.  Brrr!

2. My gummys met their first grade teachers yesterday and they recognized so many of their friends from last year.  They were a little apprehensive that they wouldn’t know anyone for the upcoming school year but I think they’re relieved now.

3. Why do I always open Yahoo and automatically look to see what stupid thing El Presidente did or said lately???

4. My Director has been a real jerk with me lately and my supervisor doesn’t have the b*lls God gave a gnat to stand up to him.  I have this dread that I’ll have to retain an attorney soon.  It’s time to move on to something else even if it means a downgrade.  I have my high 3 years for retirement purposes.  I need a lot of patience right now.

5.  My firewood stocks are low for for some fire pits.  We’re going to have some great nights for sitting outside on a bug free night enjoying a fire under starry skies.

That’s it for this post.  Feel free to comment and/or wave a vigorous ‘IT’S FOOTBALL TIME!” as you pass thru if you would like.   🙂

    I will be putting new tomato plants in next month 😀
    Why do you even open Yahoo and why do you always mention this president who is no better, no worse than any of the last several? I think you secretly love this president and want to know every tweet he makes.
    I have a need for a Pool guy. Boo wants you to actually work cutting down trees. I want you to come tend to my non-existent pool 😉

        In my basement???? This Florida, we don’t have basements. If we did, the basement would be the pool :-/ Ok, go cut trees with Boo then. There are plenty of other pool boys to be had 😉

    “doesn’t have the b*lls God gave a gnat”

    I love this! May I steal this?
    Really made me laugh out loud 😀

    Reminds me of “Muggaseggele”. The smallest unit of length in my Swabian dialect. A “Muggaseggele” is the gnat’s c*ck – and a small one on top of that. Oh, and it’s an expression you may use in good company 😉

        Thank you 🙂
        You use it similar to “a little bit” like in “The cupboard a Muggaseggele to the left, dear, and the sofa a Muggaseggele to the right. That’s lovely. ” 😉

  3. *shudder* Football time? Oh my heck. Time for ME to pull out the ‘winter projects’ and get started. And #3? It’s not just Yahoo that does that. EVERY media platform has that idiot plastered all over – either pictures or quotes (like he says anything of note in the first place). My mother used to say:
    “Fools names, like fools faces
    Are often seen in public places”

    That applies to the Orange Dump in spades. IMHO of course.
