Mom’s Best Joke

Two old guys were sitting on the porch. One was a talker, the other, not.

Talker said “If I ever get married again, she’s gonna have some…” while rubbing his thumb and forefinger together.

Other guy grunted.

Talker said “If I ever get married again, she’s gonna have some…” while tapping his temple with his finger.

Other guy grunted.

Talker said “If I ever get married again, she’s gonna have some…” while holding his cupped hands in front of his chest.

Other guy said “I can understand why you would want a woman with some money and sense, but arthritis?”


Not Cruel

Nature, not cruel, just implacable:

Simple life

Moon so bright I can
Distinguish colors. You, too?
Beautiful night, yay!

Life’s simple pleasures:

Final answer

My final answer to the question, “What do you want out of life?”

Peace and wonderment, in equal measure, for the rest of my life, thanks.

May peace and wonderment find you, mliswilltravel.


The one fortune cookie I will believe: “Your lap will soon be covered with crumbs.”


Fulsome–excessive and/or insincere flattery. Even the archaic meaning of “a copious supply” does not fit the context in which various common taters are using this word. Fulsome praise of Donald Trump is common and seems to be required of those who want to last as White House staff. If what you mean is “full disclosure” then say full disclosure, please. Jeez.

Witch Hunt–an outdated recreational activity of the ruling class whereby inconvenient persons were discredited and disposed of. Who is doing more of this, Donald Trump or the mainstream media? Just asking.

Barbara Bush–A practical and dignified lady. I would have preferred her as President over her husband and her son. In spite of her comments concerning Ms. Ferraro, a worthy person and opponent overall.

May your opponents be worthy, and may you meet them with fortitude and integrity, mliswilltravel.

Regarding Facebook

Facebook, much like the NRA, has done nothing for me. Each of these entities have done nothing for me because I have not asked them to. Those who have chosen to associate with either gave up their autonomy and anonymity for the sake of what, I don’t know. Neither provides a service I value, and both are special interests who think that number of members means political hay on the part of Facebook or the NRA.

I don’t see it this way at all. Both have duped the public into thinking that the value of their perceived services outweigh any sacrifice made by members. Laughable. My privacy and my ability to look up folks I want to connect with are in my own hands. My right to keep and bear arms is protected by the 2nd Amendment, not the NRA. Both of these special interests are about as useless as Congress, and whose idea was it that any of these three [Facebook, NRA, Congress] might be useful? Especially in this tech-enabled world? Laughable.

Look up your friends on the open-access neutral Net. Keep your enthusiasm for being able to protect yourself to yourself. And again, 1-800-UGOVERN sounds like a great idea to me, making sure we don’t need to send easily bought representatives to a central location so the lobbyists can feed upon them.

Time for a Constitutional Convention. Time for the Tree of Liberty to be transplanted and fertilized. Time for change. Keeping anything of use to We the People in the hands of the privileged few is maladaptive and dangerous.

Hope your maladaptions are few, mliswilltravel.
