Last one for the month…

Well…sitting here waiting for the Wings to start and thought I’d get the last one for the month done…not sure what it will be about but it will be something….have been struggling with politics lately…or maybe I’m just losing interest in it…hope not since has been one of the central topics around here and I’m not sure what I’ll write about without it…just need someone to do something crazy…even after being off the bike for two weeks there is no trail news…okay..going to publish this one and then come back later after I let my brain work for a while….

Okay…brain still isn’t working but I’m going to give it a try….man, what a gloomy day today…it is so dark in here that I probably should turn the lights on…it was kind of funny this aft watching the Wings and having the lights go out at the Joe about 20 seconds in….half hour later they had them fixed and I don’t think I’ve seen the Wings play so well this year…pretty neat….hell…just cant’ think today so I think I’ll just give up…

November 30th

Well…running late again today but it’s just because I wanted to get out and ride the bike while I could go in shorts….okay, need to restart this thing…lost the cursor…okay, that did it…it was a nice bike ride…got the swing arm bearings adjusted so there is no play in them anymore and the new shifter is dialed in…felt like a new bike today…but I am going to be sore later today…slept really crappy last night and was back up at 5 this morning so getting the blood flowing with a bike ride was just what I needed…I did get out and had a couple with G and then straight to hang out with K for another one…so that might have something to do with feeling a little slow today…not much to do today…just the Wings game and then a little cleaning and a nap this aft…and one more of these later to hit the quota….,more later…

November 29th

Well…it was an okay day and I won at pool so that was cool….but, I feel a little crappy today and part of it is not being able to get on the bike for over a week now…going to try today….slept okay but slammed my thumb on the wall tossing and turning and I am going to lose a big chunk of the nail….took a big divot out of the wall, too, and that may have to be repaired….I am a little down with the troubles that T is having and I can’t help but think of her…as you can see, I didn’t come back for a second one yesterday and I was just too preoccupied to do it…just didn’t seem that important…not much to do today…Man U plays at 10 and that will be the only thing I am planning on today…other than football….more later…

November 28th

Well…it was quite a peaceful day yesterday and I feel a little recharged today…but, the cocktails are taking a small toll and I think it will be just a little while until the coffee works it’s magic…slept okay last night and had dreams that were really too disjointed to make sense of….didn’t get a thing done other than cooking so that means work for today…oh, nope, can’t do that…have errands to run this morning and then pool this aft so cleaning will have to wait until tomorrow….not much to do today….need to get moving pretty quick to get those errands done…and, I wanted to get on the bike today but it’s too icy and cold so maybe tomorrow? More later…

No news today…

Well…event though I’m ahead for the month, I am bored silly and thought I’d come back here for one more today…okay, not totally bored since I’m watching “Knife fight” but other than that, I have been bored most of the day…the Lions surprised the heck out of me by winning the game today so that was cool…but it’s been a total veg day…didn’t even try to get on the bike today since it was snowing and with the dusting, I couldn’t see the ice that is under it and it just wasn’t worth getting injured to ride…will try that again tomorrow…the turkey came out much better than the last one and I am warming up to sage that I used for the butter coating….but, I am still full even after eating at 1 this aft…I did have pie, too, so I feel like a beached whale right now and will not make a second meal today…just some nuts with cocktails later….

November 27th

Well…it was an okay day yesterday and all I got done was errands…but, that’s okay since I wasn’t going to do the kitchen until after I mess it up cooking dinner today…slept okay but feel a little slow this morning and I am just going to let that slowly go away…might try to get out on the bike this morning to just take a look at the trails….but, that will have to be soon since I want to get the turkey in around 10 or so…baked the pie last night so there will just be mixing of the other dishes….have already read the 5 pound paper and it’s only 8:30….so, I should get going…but, need one more cup of coffee first….more later…

Here we go again…

Well..it would be nice to not have to do another one of these on another police shooting of a young black kid…but, here we go again…last week in Cleveland, a young black kid was screwing around with a pellet gun and the police showed up…within seconds, and with only shouting at the kid, a cop just shot him dead. This time the kid was doing what I and millions of other kids have done in their lives…just fooling around with a pellet gun…for a white kid, it would have been a nothing event…the cops would have just walked up to him and asked what was going on….why didn’t they do that here? Are the cops so afraid of a 12 year old boy that they shoot first and ask questions later? I am afraid that the outcome here is going to be the same as Ferguson…no cop being held accountable and their lawlessness being reinforced and rewarded…again…while the rest of us lose our faith that the laws of this country mean anything anymore….

No more Ferguson…

Well…with the fear of beating the whole situation in Ferguson to death, I think I’ll move on to other topics this afternoon and see where it goes…first, just read the Obama has grown a spine and has told Harry Reid that he will veto the bill that ole Harry has negotiated with house repubs that would have screwed the middle class by taking away tax breaks and giving them to business…yep, I’m not sure what the hell ole Harry it thinking but that is not what any dem that I would vote for would do….I can now see why people don’t think there is any difference between the parties. Why can’t our side start acting like dems? I applaud Obama for telling Harry it was a non-starter. I also applaud Nancy Pelosi for making sure that there would not be any dems voting to override any veto….hmmm…what’s second? Not much…I am done going out until Friday aft for pool and that feels good…got a bunch of stuff done today and ran a couple of errands but now, it’s veg time with soccer…champions league is not my favorite unless Man U is playing but it’s good for taking a nap…..more later…

November 26th

Well…it was an okay day yesterday but I didn’t get much done but the grocery run…slept the same as always so I won’t talk about that…just another boring night sitting here, too, but the next season of “Lilyhammer” just came out and that helps pass the time…still a pretty good show….I am shifting into holiday mode today and won’t be doing much but getting the turkey brined and watching the Wings later…have a couple of errands to run this morning and then I am going to try to get back on the bike today just to see what the trail looks like….okay, the computer is giving me fits today so I am going to end here right now and restart the thing to see if that helps…more later…

Still can’t believe it…

Well…I am still marveling at the corkscrewing logic that was used by the prosecutor when he was announcing that the killer was not going to be indicted in the Ferguson case. It was so clear that he had an outcome that he wanted, to let the officer go free, and then worked backward to get to that point. There was so much prosecutorial misconduct here that I wonder why anyone even believed that there could be any fairness or justice…I am appalled at how blatant the rigging was from the news conferences where there was character assassination¬† of the victim to the quite clear effort to ensure that there was no clear case of probable cause presented….the prosecutor should be brought up on malpractice charges and disbarred for this craven display of putting his thumb on the scale of justice so justice wouldn’t be served….geez…
