Good Morning Campers,
Well … it’s happened. The Dragon has been exposed to COVID. I’m not saying I have it. But it was enough of an exposure that I went and got tested this morning. Today is Monday, Presidents’ Day and we are in the midst of a huge snow storm, but at 0930 hrs. I swept off the car and drove down to the local National Guard Armory where they are doing testing and got myself tested. Now, I have to wait 4 to 6 days for the results. No one in our town does the rapid testing and I wasn’t going to drive 25 miles in a virtual blizzard just so I could get a COVID test. But, I had to self-identify at work and now I am quarantined until I get my test results back.
Damn! I have to take a couple of days off! That sucks! Man, I hate this shit!(<—Insert Sarcasm Font)
Okay, anyway, I’ll keep you guys informed and let you know what’s going on. But, as of right now, got tested and no symptoms. So, there doesn’t seem to be anything left to do but watch the snow, and …
I’m not sure if that’s really stable or just great irony.
Now that’s total and complete lack of “Give-A-Shit” oh, and also wonderful irony.
And now, how about some Footballisms from some great Football Coaches thanks to Papa Dragon Most Senior … my Dad:

Ohio State’s Urban Meyer on one of his players:

In fact, I just saw his grades and he doesn’t know the meaning of a lot of words.”

So they can dress that way for the game on Saturday, go hunting on Sunday, and pick up trash on Monday.

Frankenstein enters into a body building competition and finds he has seriously misunderstood the objective.
I want to know how they got taught to drive, slowly or otherwise? I’m having a helluva time getting Izzy Dragon on the road.
If you’re feeling lazy, just know that my mom just asked my brother to vacuum his room, but he youtubed a vacuum sound and laid in bed instead.
Definitely needed today!
Signs of impending disaster …
Although the cat looks the least comfortable of them all …
Did you hear about the mathematician who’s afraid of negative numbers?
He’ll stop at nothing to avoid them.
Think about it for a minute and if you still don’t get it … I’m sorry.
If I were a driving instructor, I would definitely take my students on this road.
I can’t wait until my kids get cars. First thing I’m going to do is stomp Cheetos in the floor boards and explode a coke in the back seat.
And that’s how Dad’s roll … or um … sink.
Oh crap! Mother-In-Law is here!
Makes sense to me.
Taco Bell is selling fries. Burger King is selling tacos. KFC is putting Cheetos on chicken sandwiches …
I knew we shouldn’t have legalized marijuana.
That is AWESOME!!!!
Let’s do some mail, shall we?
OK, I felt bad about receiving the first two stimulus checks, because this pandemic hasn’t affected us financially (except I can’t do my own shopping in the stores, so have paid too much for what I have to order . . . mostly food), but I am so damn busy doing computer related work for others, mostly older people like me, who do not have a computer and internet like me, in a time when everything has gone to internet (as in, can’t go to DMV unless you make an appointment on the internet), that I feel I should get the next stimulus as ‘early’ payment, rather than waiting to be given my just rewards in heaven, which I might be seeing soon, if the stress from all this computer work doesn’t level off!
WHEW! I feel so much better . . . (this rant to be continued)
Wow Leah … that took a convoluted turn, but we expect nothing less from you, dear. Don’t feel bad about taking your money back from the government. They are going to get it back from you, anyway. And it’s not like it didn’t start out as yours to begin with.
I don’t think you really have OCD. If you did, you would call it CDO.
Very subtle Dave. And now I feel cured!!!!
Another good job Imp
Thanks Tomw … is it just me or does your name look like a screwy abbreviation for tomorrow?
Just an FYI if when you go to stop on snow or ice first shift into neutral before applying the brakes. Stop faster and stop straight.
An excellent point Jerry. That works when you are stopping under non-emergency or excited conditions, but trying to remember that when you are in a bit of an excited situation is difficult for a lot of people. So, you tend to do what you practice. So, practice, practice, practice. When it’s a little slick out, pop the car into neutral when you come up to a stop sign or light and get used to it and then when you get into a tight situation when the car is in a skid, you might remember to do that and it might help you out. But, every situation is different. The judicious application of power to the wheels might be what you need, also…to avoid hitting that immovable object. The important thing to remember is to slow down and be safe.
My dearest Dragon, it’s ok that you pick on me, accuse me of horrible puns, and blame sexist remarks on me. However, the Halloween picture of us was supposed to be private!
You ask how much Nancy spends for her security? Not one cent, we pay for it.
The Morocco woman killed her special friend because he wanted someone else. The article says she’s 30, 10 years older than him and they’d been in a relationship for 7 years. That means when she was 23 she grabbed a 13 year old boy? Where was that boys mama?
Yeah, I did the math on that boy, too. Seemed a little … odd.
And Nancy should be ashamed of herself, but we all know she has no shame.
And that picture was private! I have no idea how it got put into circulation, much less published, but there is an internal audit going on right now and an investigation. I’ve got Guido working on it. Is that Ogre still after you? I thought we had that buried years ago.
I’d like to thank whomever told my mom that WTF means “Wow That’s Fantastic.” Her texts are so much more fun now.
Also works as a whiskey holder … and I gots to get me one of those!!!!!
The German Parliament building has a glass dome above it that people can walk over. This is to remind the politicians that government should be transparent, and the people are always above them.
Not to get off topic, but I found this device attached to the bottom of my car … does anyone know if I should be worried?
Study also finds that newspaper headline writers are also parents.
Signing contracts with blood actually makes sense. A written signature can be forged or ambiguous, but the DNA test will always show whose signature it is.
Samsung originally sold noodles. It wasn’t until 1970 that they started selling electronics.
Yeah, it’s like that.
Did You Know: It costs $30,000 to get on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. A-Listers like Julia Roberts, Denzel Washington, Clint Eastwood, and Al Pacino don’t have a star because they didn’t pay.
I sympathize with batteries … I’m never included in anything either.
The Mayan god of wind and storms was called Jun Raqan, pronounced “Huracan” hence the word “Hurricane.”
Well, I got my results back today and I tested negative for the COVID virus. But, they cautioned me that that doesn’t mean I don’t have it. I could have tested too soon after my exposure, it could be a false negative, and just because I don’t have any symptoms might mean that I am asymptomatic and still have it. So, why the hell did I waste my time even getting the test if I still have to take 14 days off work? Yup, 14 days off work. Even though I tested negative. Silly assed rules.
So, this afternoon, after everyone has left work, I’m going to go in to the office and get my work computer so I can work from home…so…good fun.
Today’s Question of the Day: Why do we send men overseas to fight for freedom and give it up without a fight here?
Is it too late to impeach George Washington for owning slaves? I don’t see how we can let that shit slide.
Watching our country being destroyed by our own people is the saddest thing I’ve ever seen…
Biggest Super Bowl in history going on in DC right now …
It’s the Patriots vs. The Stealers
And Lynn Says: At some point this feels like something that should be addressed. All of these fuckers are rich enough. If you’re in the business of making laws and regulations that affect industries, how about you don’t get to buy stock in any of the industries your decisions may actually affect. Yup… for the rest of us, that’s called “Insider Trading” and it’s against the law! But, oh, I forgot. The law is for us peons, not for Queen Pelosi.
You know, it’s a shame that we even think we might need signs like this in our buildings.
Do you all remember, before the internet, that people thought the cause of stupidity was the lack of access to information?
It wasn’t that.
Aussie Pete wanted to know if this next one reminded me of anyone …
If he had been to my matches, I wish he had introduced himself.
Boy, ain’t that the truth.
And with that we’re going to call it an issue. May you all be happy and blessed. More on Saturday. Cheers!
