Impracticable Jokers

My son turned me onto one of the most entertaining and enjoyable of “Reality Show” impracticable Jokers. It comes on the TruTV channel on our cable package. Not a channel that I had ever spent any time watching. It now is on top of my “Favorite” channels!

This show is about four long time best friends that enjoy embarrassing each other in any way that they can! So far my favorite episode is when Sal and Murr try to get someone in a campus library to hush them, using bird calls, jingle bells, tubas and other loud sounds that are not acceptable to produce in a library any where.The cymbals at wwbw.com turned out to be too much for Sal to handle so he walks out with his head hanging down low and is one step closer to be that nights “Loser” and that is never a good thing.

Inspection Stickers – Safety First

I’m glad that I noticed that the inspection sticker on my car is ready to expire at the end of this month. I would hate to be pulled over and given an ticket for driving on a dead inspection sticker that would really suck and put a real damper on any Christmas spirit that I can pull out of my butt hat. Some days I can really feel it, especially if a certain Christmas song comes on. There aren’t a lot that I like to listen to, but every now and then one will come on that I haven’t heard a zillion times in my life time that will get me pumped up!

I know a lot of people take issue with having to get their vehicles inspected every year, it is a hassle, but in all reality it is a good thing since too many people would be driving vehicles that are not safe for them to be driving nor safe enough to be sharing the road with other drivers. Remember: Safety First!

Did you know that there are still states out there that don’t require anything after the first initial purchase and safety inspection. When you stop and think about all the vehicles that you are trying to share the road and the possible conditions that those other cars are experiencing that are not being taken care of for one reason or another, it can put a good scare in me especially when I’m in one of my “paranoid” moods. At least a legally required inspection sticker puts the heat on people to take care of the major safety factors or else drive illegally and possibly get pulled over, your license run and most likely a ticket that will cost you some of your cold hard cash. While a police officer stands by your car window and wishes you a Merry Christmas!

 

Quiet Thanksgiving

This year we have to stay close to home instead of getting together with the whole family for a big meal. There’s a bit of a tiff underway and I want to part of it. So we are staying home and I’m cooking a small turkey for just us. I think I’ll do sweet potatoes and a couple of side dishes that are my long time favorites, like corn pudding and turnip greens with relish.

Hope you have a nice Thanksgiving – no matter where you are when you sit down to eat. And be sure to kiss and thank the cook!

Welcome November

The weather does not really feel like autumn yet, but here it is November already. I don’t like to count down until Christmas, but it does seem like there is a sense of urgency to get into the spirit of the holidays.

I am focused on Thanksgiving now and will do a little bit of Christmas shopping here and there until after Turkey Day. We also have Veteran’s Day to celebrate this month. And I’m sure that one night, very soon, I will have to resort to turning on the furnace and getting heat in the house to stave off the chilled night air.
