…are due to me being sick.
I’ve been sick since Thanksgiving. Started out sneezing my ass off all night and then coughing. The aches and pains came along shortly afterwards and then the sore throat.
Pretty crappy weekend for that. Stayed home today. I should be able to go to work tomorrow. My posts will pick up as I feel better.
At least I got to see my brother before he ships out.
I’m not saying where, or the unit. He’s going to be gone for a while and it sucks. I’ll say where he is in a later post when it’s not an OPSEC (operational security) issue.
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.
…you’d be 69 today.
I sure do miss you.
Since 2007 I’ve missed having you around to give me guidance, even when I didn’t want it.
I miss your spirit.
I miss how you could make friends with anyone.
I miss your drive and determination.
I miss your can-do attitude even in the face of adversity.
Your smile was warm.
Your laugh was infectious.
I miss you.
I love you Ma.
…where the hell was I at yesterday.
I took yesterday off.
I completely avoided the internet, and the news.
Sometimes, a person needs a break from all the bullshit, so I just ignored the world for a day.
I won’t take much to catch up on events.
I lounged around in my robe all day and didn’t do shit.
It was a nice break.
…today that is.
I need to sit back and get my thoughts in order.
My emotional response is what’s hitting my blog since last night and it’s not good.
I’ll post my reading list and of course we can’t go through this without a hump day hottie to ease our depression, so that will be posted as well.
I’ll be back in full form tomorrow.
Thanks for playing.
You can still find me on Twitter @1IDVET.
…the devastation is unbelievable.
The scale of the devastation left by Superstorm Sandy is mounting today as the death toll continues to rise – currently 50 people across the US and Canada have been reported dead, but the final figure is expected to be significantly higher.
President Obama declared a ‘major disaster’ in New York and Long Island as flooded streets were littered with cars, homes were razed to the ground and tankers washed up on shore.
The President warned that Sandy ‘is not yet over’ and announced that he would visit New Jersey on Wednesday to visit the scenes of the destruction.
Hundreds of thousands of people are without power in New York and the transit system, schools, the stock exchange and Broadway are all out of action after a 13ft wall of water caused by the storm surge and high tides brought severe flooding to subways and road tunnels.
Sandy, one of the biggest storms to ever descend on the country, hit the mainland at 6.30pm local time yesterday having laid waste to large parts of the coast during the day.
…of folks that have visited this blog.
I was curious as to where people that read my blog hail from.
Here’s the break down of the top 10 from the last 10 days:
|Republic of Korea||154|
I’m thinking the reason I have so many Asian countries is the fact that I post mostly Asian babes for my eye candy parade.
Tell your friends if you like my blog, or hell we can swap links if we haven’t already done so. Not to be confused with swapping spit in the shower, although…
It would also be appreciated if I get more comments from everyone. Sometimes it feels like I’m talking to myself. Sometimes I answer myself, which is worrisome.
Madness does not always howl. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, “Hey, is there room in your head for one more?”
I get that a lot.
Thanks to all who venture through my little part of the world.

And for no other reason than I want to write about something other than politics.
I’ve got four dogs. Not one of them will chase a damn ball.
They might swat it, sniff it, chase it until it stops, but then, turn around and look at me like I’m nuts.
Give them a squeaky toy and two will play tug of war with it until it breaks and the stuffing is all over the house, or back yard.
Prior to those two, my wiener dog had a squeaky toy that lasted four years. She played with it daily and never tore it up.
But not one will bring a ball back to me. Sure, they’ll bring the squeaky back to me, but not a damn ball.
Why won’t they bring back a ball?
Prior to this bunch I had one dog, a German Shepard that would bring the ball back and drop it at my feet. I can’t figure out how to get these guys to just pick it up and bring it back at all.
Then again, the Shepard obeyed my commands. In fact, if I told her to heal, she’d do just that and didn’t matter what was going on around her. Even in the presence of other dogs, she’d heal when I told her to.
These guys, barely sit when I tell them to.
They do come when I call them, they are good about that and they will stay with me when I tell them to, but other than that, they’re the laziest bunch of good for nothing dogs I’ve ever seen.
What a bunch of goofs.
Here’s the pack:
Ginger is a Jindo dog. That’s a Korean dog. Look it up. They’re good dogs, loyal and protective.
Gochu is a Chihuahua mix. He’ll sit there and look at you with that stupid shit eating grin on his face for an hour if you let him.
Lucy is a wiener. I like rubbing my wiener. dog.
Sammy is a PomChi, aka Pomeranian Chihuahua. Sammy was supposed to by my wife’s dog. That didn’t quite work out as planned. He attached himself to me.
Lucy is my dog, planned it that way and it’s true. She’s my bud.
Ginger was supposed to be mine, but she’s more attached to my wife. Has a beautiful bark. Deep and menacing. She’s a puss though. Great watch dog, would help you steal my shit though.
Gochu, which means red pepper, or dick in Korean, is an odd ball. Very loving, but not the brightest in the bunch. He and Ginger are attached to each other like glue. Can’t call one without the other showing up too.
Evidence of the Gochu/Ginger bond:
They are inseparable.
This is usually the view I get when Lucy wants me to pay attention to her:
That’s her squeaker that I mentioned. It’s been since ripped to shreds by the other two.
Sammy is the boss. He’s the smallest of the bunch and doesn’t take any shit from them, or anyone else. In fact, he’s the biggest asshole of the bunch.
If he was bigger, I’d have to put a chain on him. He’s that anal.
Don’t let that innocent look fool you. He’s an asshole. But he’s pretty cool though.
Not one. NOT. ONE. will chase a ball and bring it back to me.
Good for nothing dogs.
Some of you may post a comment and it may not show up right away because of the spam filter. Please don’t keep posting the same comment over and over, then change your name and post it again.
I’ll get to it eventually, and even if you’re a delusional liberal, I’ll approve the comment.
