Got to be one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done in my whole life. But, I’ve got to hand it to Mrs. Dragon. She has got the fortitude of a mother dragon. She woke up this morning (and a lot of you know her difficult health conditions) and felt like crap. Said she didn’t think she could physically or emotionally go with me to take Baileigh to the vet. I honestly didn’t think she would and with her blood pressure issues, wasn’t sure I really wanted her to. But then she said she would drive down there with me to help with the drive. I couldn’t ask Izzy Dragon, she was an emotional wreck. When we got down there they were doing the whole, “call us when you get there and we’ll come out to the car.” But, we’ve got a really good relationship with the ladies who work there and they said at first, when they realized who we were that one of us could go right in and then that both of us could go in and Mrs. Dragon went from wanting to wait in the car to walking right in the door with Baileigh. And then I watched as my beautiful bride sat on the floor with our old friend and smiled and cooed and petted and laughed with her as she fell asleep with her head in her lap. And then she walked out with her head high and tears rolling down her beautiful pink Irish cheeks, holding my hand and then we cried together in the car before we drove back home. I’ve never been more proud of her in my whole damn life. To show strength and comfort and love to a friend, even when that friend is just a furry pet. Well … they just don’t get any better than that.
And I want to thank all of you who have sent words of comfort and prayers to us over the last day. You know who you are. It means an awful lot. Thank you so much.
And now, on to the laughter, cause today, we really need it. Bombs going off at the Afghan airport; Biden screwing up; COVID numbers going through the roof; Biden screwing up; Vaccines that aren’t vaccines with FDA approval that really isn’t FDA approval; Biden screwing up; Yeah … we need some friggin’ laughter around here. Bad!
Oh! And just so you know … I’m working on emails from 12 August … so … still 2 friggin’ weeks behind.
I prefer my Kale with a silent K
Never fight with a dinosaur …
… You’ll get Jurasskicked.
You know how they throw the ball into the crowd after they win the game? That’s not allowed in bowling. I know that now.
I love playing submarine in the bathtub
I AM NOT SELF MEDICATING!
The guy at the liquor store gave me a prescription.
Okay, he called it a receipt.
Yes, I know it’s bad … and I’m ashamed of myself … but damn, I laughed so hard!
They should put more wine in a bottle …
So there’s enough for two people.
Got an email from John S. He makes a lot of sense …
Good Morning to you Dragon hope this finds you and your well.
Had a thought …
If we Clear Cut California that would cut down on Global Warming a LOT .
That is a really good point … strongly worth considering …
I have serious questions about the first signs and serious concerns about the second …
The afternoon relay races around here are some of the best in the world!
I will definitely do that.
Just heard that we lost at least
ten twelve service members outside the Abbey Gate near the Hamid Karzai Airport. They are calling it a complex attack. What that means, is that they used one attack (a suicide bomber with a vest) to force the crowd of people toward another, second bomb (in this case a VBIED or Vehicle Born IED) designed to kill more people. This means that it wasn’t some idiot with a bomb, but used some sort of strategy and shows that to some degree, they aren’t holding up their side of the “agreement”. If you can even have an agreement with evil. This administration is full of fucking idiots
“A wine, please.”
“Miss, I’m sorry, but this is McDonald’s.”
“Okay, a McWine, please.”
When you said friends with benefits …
I assumed you owned a liquor store.
This is what the Apollo Metalmark Butterfly looks like.
Not all construction work is equally enjoyable.
For example, enlarging a drilled hole is boring, but fastening pieces of metal together is riveting.
So, there are some things that I need to wrap up in this issue. There are a million memes popping up that I’m not going to search for over what’s going on right now with Afghanistan. We are now up to 13 service members dead and that’s nothing to laugh about. It was all handled horribly, but Biden’s response is appalling. There is no leadership there at all. And he proved it himself when he said, they gave me a list of who to call on … who gave him a list? He’s the President? He can call on whoever the hell he wants to call on. Who is telling him what to do? That’s the problem. Not only is he an idiot, elected by idiots, he’s not even the idiot who’s running things.
I do want to take the time to thank all you wonderful people who have helped me to pay the bills this year. It is donation time. We have about two weeks left if anyone else is interested in joining this elite group. Once a year I reach out and ask for help in keeping this website free. Free of advertising, free for you guys and not put behind a pay wall. And every year you guys come forward and help me out. All you have to do is click on the donation button on the top right corner of the site and give what you think is right. I do this for free because I enjoy it, because I think it’s important, and … well … just because. If you enjoy it, throw me a couple of bucks, you’re probably going to stop for a coffee on the way to work today, why not buy one for me, too. And if not, or you can’t … that’s okay, too. No judgment here. There were years where I was working multiple jobs and couldn’t scrape enough together to buy myself a cup of coffee.
So, here’s our wonderful group of contributors:
Richard E. Dan T. Daniel W. Susan W.
Steven H. Henry S. Leah H. Donald G.
Michael C. Carlos W. William E. John R.

Thank you all so very, very much! From the bottom of my heart.
With as much crap as is going on right now and as much bad news and sad news as has been put out … let’s go out today with some good stuff. Thanks to Steve H. for sending these pictures of Humanity at it’s best!
May the rest of your day be filled with love and happiness.
