A little dog and wild carrots

tcr! · Apr 20, 2018 at 7:24 pm

Audio (MP3): 20180420 - A little dog and wild carrots

Let me first say that I’m an animal lover as much as the next Dr. Doolittle. It’s rare that I meet a dog or cat and they don’t end up liking me sooner or later. I think mostly that’s because I don’t care if they like me or not.

However, the neighbor’s dog and myself, we don’t get along. He barks at me from his yard every time I’m outside in my yard. Or when I’m walking to or from my garage. Bark, bark, bark.

Obviously he’s got the short man complex.

I’ve tried making friends with him. I’ve tried explaining to him that I’ve lived here longer than he has and that gives me seniority. And on my very worst days I’ll blow my megaphone at him when he so much as lets out a whimper.

So anyways, a little while ago I was out tending my yard and little Napoleon was in his house so all was right with the world. The neighborhood people were also out walking their dogs up and down the alley as they do. And every time they did I heard him barking from inside his house.

I was thinking to myself how annoyed I get just even hearing him bark every now and then. Can imagine the horror of actually living with him relentlessly barking all the eff’ing time? I thought so.

I could only giggle quietly to myself.


Queen Annes Lace roots

In other news, does anybody know what kind of plant these are?

Some of the taproots are almost as big as carrots. It looks kinda like a dainty fern and it’s soft as a feather. It’s also decided to take over the world. Well, take over my backyard anyway.

Update: they’re Queen Anne’s Lace. Apparently a couple of summers ago I did, in fact, let them take over the world.

I don’t have the issue with the Queen Annes Lace, however I do have the issue of the non-stop barking from the neighbor’s dog. It is a small dog that I could quite easily drop kick through the air across the yard and into never never land. ( I would never have such evil thoughts wink wink) Its very frustrating because during the warmer months I spend the majority of my time at home outside working in my backyard. I have done everything from ignoring the animal, attempting to bribe it (I almost got bitten), throwing small sticks to distract it, to messaging the offending neighbor via messenger, Other people in the neighborhood have called the police and reported them. This worked for them because now the dog is no longer allowed in the front yard only the back which is where I hang out. None of these methods work for me and finally one night last week I screamed “SHUT THE FUCK UP” and low and behold the neighbor appeared immediately and brought the offending animal inside. Finally a method that works. I will continue to do this until it doesn’t. Funny thing is she locked the dog in the basement last night where it barked incessantly but at a tolerable level for me. Not so tolerable for her however because I could hear her cussing inside the house. Tee hee motherfucker :) Love you Travy funny how we have similar problems eh :) - AJC

I was listening to Fresh Air on WBEZ a few minutes ago and they replayed Terry Gross’ interview with Harry Anderson. It was from 1998 I think. I looked for the audio but didn’t have any luck.

Anyways, I lost my interest in magic, cards, and picking locks right around puberty but I’ve always admired Harry Anderson. He was humble, confident, and funny. Most of all I think he was sincere. All the things I hope I am today.

I also like that he was a con man who got a part on Cheers by being who he was and not by being an actor, or somebody who he wasn’t.


Update: here’s the audio and transcript:
Before He Became The ‘Night Court’ Judge, Harry Anderson Was A Con-Man Magician

First flowers of 2018

tcr! · Apr 20, 2018 at 10:38 am

little scilla blooming

These little scilla were always hidden under the bushes until I trimmed them up last year. Maybe they’ll spread around now. And I’m always grateful when color comes back to the yard, to the world.

In related news, being a cynic doesn’t appeal to me much these days.

Happy Friday, peeps!

Refillable Plastic Wrap Dispenser with Slide Cutter

This plastic wrap dispenser will seriously be one of the best things you ever spend your money on.

Before I’d have yards pulled out with the wrap only clinging to itself.

Do you ever want to go to Subway and buy a footlong with only peppers and onions and maybe cucumbers and then take that into a public restroom and leave the unwrapped sandwich on the floor and then hang around washing your hands until the next person comes in?

I thought so.

70 and 80 proof

70 and 80 proof

Of course I don’t drink anymore…but whenever I see liquor bottles my eyes head straight for the PROOF.

Because that’s all that mattered. 😊

Definitely checked the proof when I was a tadpole, drinking underage. That WAS what mattered. Now I think of Lemmy.

The proof was in the proof all right. We would get someone older to buy the liquor for us, and all we knew was Southern Comfort was 100 proof. Jack was 90 back then, and some Bacardi rum was 151 proof. I don’t have any idea how we knew this info. But there we were, skinny kids who would get drunk on a 6 pack of three two beer and we’d have a special occasion, for IE: Saturday, and we’d get the liquor and drink it with coke. The results were predictable. I remember now that we knew about the Bacardi because of HST’s literature. Don’t try it at home kids.

tism tism · Apr 18, 2018 at 10:02 am

In the winter we used to drink outside behind some abandoned box cars at the freight yard. When we got cold we’d prop the empty beer cases on the ledge and light ‘em on fire. Coke went directly into the light Bacardi pints. If you were brave you’d get Bacardi dark.

tcr! tcr! · Apr 18, 2018 at 11:57 am

Barcardi Dark… That’s pretty much the same as the Dark Side of the Force.

jimi hindrance experience jimi hindrance experience · Apr 19, 2018 at 4:28 am

I LOVED Bacardi dark.

Like I’m going to fall over

Audio (MP3): 20180417 - Like I'm going to fall over

I haven’t been writing as much because I’ve been struggling with my nicotine addiction. All sorts of things happen and don’t happen when I try to quit.

Sometimes I’ll spout off something about quitting on social media or whatever but lately I’ve just been keeping my struggles to myself. Because unless somebody was a daily smoker for over 30 years, they don’t really get it. I know people are trying to help but move along. Sometimes we just need to vent.
