Being Tailgated...grrrr
Posted November 17, 2011

I commute EARLY in the morning.  This time of year, it's dark.  The stars are out.  You get the picture.  So, I was on my way in this morning, almost here, and a car was behind me, jammping right up on my rear bumper.  I was not driving at a snail's pace either.  What made it worse is he had not only his lights illuminating the interior of my car, but 2 halogen fog lights on also.

Posted August 28, 2011

Strollers...a Godsend to parents all over to let them take a load off and let their little sleepy Johnny or little Mary ride along while seeing the sights of a local event...great for the parents.  Horrid for the rest of us.  I remember an ice rink across the bay from me - they actually SUPPLIED STROLLERS FOR USE ON THE ICE.  I kid you not...today's event was an annual flea market where an entire district of my hometown becomes a block sale.

Youth today vs. yesterday
Posted February 7, 2011

When I was a kid, adults used to bore me to tears with their tedious diatribes about how hard things were. When they were growing up; what with walking twenty-five miles to school every morning.... Uphill... Barefoot... BOTH ways...yadda, yadda, yadda

And I remember promising myself that when I grew up, there was no way in hell I was going to lay a bunch of crap like that on my kids about how hard I had it and how easy they've got it!
