About Me

My Photo
I'm an artist, an educator and I write. I also will gamble on just about anything. And I love my wife. This blog is observations from a funny old man who gets pissed off every once in a while.

TUESDAY #2448

One Of My Very Own…





The Don being draggenized.

A young woman named Carla contacted me concerning her discovery of one of my Key Packets. She included a photo of of the contents arrayed tastefully, and gave me the details of where and when she came upon it. I sent her a thank you and the link to my tutorial. She then emailed me back and asked what the key opened. I replied, "Your imagination, Carla. The key opens your imagination."
And writing that made me smile.

This man is dead.
Never a great fan, but what a great photo.

And then there's this:
Here is a comment exchange I had yesterday:

HE: "Hey Lazy Fucker....why should I suffer on weekends because you don't want to post on weekends? I really enjoy your site so get with it. He would be more motivated with a 6:00am blowjob on Saturdays and Sundays.
B Baggins" 

ME: "Well, Mr. Baggins, I'll let you make the call. Keep the weekday number of items at about 40 or post on weekend and drop each post to 26 items. There is just so much I can find each day, so that is more or less finite. Your call."

And now I would like to ask you for your input. Less items a day for 7 days a week, or keep it the way it is with weekdays only?



I read this and liked it.
I think about stuff like that a lot. I think about how many people really liked their grandfathers, who holds a very special place in most people's lives. With that in mind, let me take you through a little history.
This man's name is Dred Scott.
On March 6, 1857, the United States Supreme Court rule in Dred Scott v. Sandford case was that people of African descent imported into the United States and enslaved, or their descendants, enslaved or free, were not protected by the Constitution and could never be citizens of the United States.

Even with such history, blacks did their share.
This is Hattie McDaniel.
Hattie McDaniel, Oscar winner for "Gone WIth the Wind," was a member of the AWVS during WWII.

Millions of her race volunteered for the army during both WWI and WWII, yet when they returned home, this is what greeted them.
 And it wasn't just effigies. This is what happened to many, many of people's parents and grandparents.
Now let's imagine that one of the survivors of such violence was your grandfather and you sat on his knee and he told you stories...lots and lots of stories. Now, further suppose you grow up in modern times, how hard do you think it would be to just forgive and forget what the white man had done to your kind?

How would our news media cover America’s race problems if they happened in another country?


Now for one of the damnest things I've ever seen.
I had just written that little essay above and I look up at my new calendar and the upper leaf was wrinkled in such a way that the light relection showed this.

I think we can all agree that that looks like an old black man...and the image on the calendar was of a field or some such shit.
That's fucking freaky.

A woman at the bar said, “A guy in a pickup truck threw a kidney out of his window and I stopped and picked it up.” At least that is what I thought she said when I asked her how she knew it was a kidney.

I told one of my servers about the marvelous landscapes out west and he said that he came very close to becoming a geologist and had taken a dozen trips to study just such landscapes. 
 Now remember the start of this post about everyone having a story. That kid worked in a pizza kitchen, yet he knew a shit load about geology.

I was feeling really down so today I went to the food bank for the first time in over a decade. When my wife came home and saw all the food, she was so excited.

Stitchwork, Michelle Kingdom

I know a very good female artist who uses "women's art" to make her stuff.  She used stitchery, but not like that, but she did it because it was nothing to be ashamed of. My wife and I own two of her works.
