Getting a laugh out of life

If it gets really bad, the trick is to click your heels together and say “There’s no place like home”.

I’m concerned about rains expected here for several days. Basement already had start seepage a couple weeks ago. Best of luck.

Many moons ago, I accidentally drove around San Antonio toward Pancho’s All You Can Eat buffet when the sky turned ugly orange, looked funny, etc. It turned out tournedos were in the area. Never knew. Sacred after!

Best wishes.

Yes, when the sky turns unusual colors, usually green here due to hail, it is usually a bad sign. :smile:

Here in Northern England, the sky will sometimes turn a strange blue colour, and you can see a burning yellow ball up there. It’s rare for this to happen, but I’ve seen it myself, and I’ve spoken to other witnesses.

:rofl: Must be terrifying.

UPDATE: made it through the night. High winds, deluge of rain and so much lightning, :grimacing: from 11:30 pm until after 2am. A number of semi trucks were blown over on one of the interstate highways. Scary stuff. Tornadoes confirmed.

Hey @Polyphemus, did I move into your neighborhood and not remember it?


This has been happening a lot lately. I realize it may not measure up to your definition of fog, but it is quite unusual to happen this often and this time of the year in this area. It is kinda creepy and I have to drive in it tonight. :grimacing: Hope the deer stay home. :smile: It will get worse.

I always wanted to drive route 66 and see Carhenge. What a heratage we Muricans have. Reminds me of https://www.atlasobscura.com/. I looked the book up because I kept seeing it on
creative types interviewee’s bookshelves.

On Tuesday, there was a sale on at the supermarket, and it was very crowded. Parking was difficult.

Well, you aced that landing! I bet many customers were secretly impressed, though I doubt they would openly admit it.

I can just imagine that little despondent-looking Gek sitting there, watching you land, then shaking his head sadly & moaning about how is he going to get his shopping trolley out now. :grin:

Some were probably also swearing because he snatched that parking space right from under their noses…

Yeah, management should never engage in practical jokes. Especially not when it comes to incentives. Bloody jackasses…

Thank you for that!

Nice to know that some people can stand up to (as @Jedidia called them) Jackasses, and win. :heart:

Wow! I guess the day we collectively celebrate true love is now being corrupted to include its opposite.

It’s the day of giving couples a guilt trip to buy gifts for each other and go out to fancy dinners, there’s nothing here to corrupt :stuck_out_tongue:

Yeah. I personally am against any one special day for things like affection and love. That is something we should show every day. Besides, gifts and dinners are so much better when they are unexpected. :clinking_glasses:
The exception is wedding anniversaries, because that day is special.
