Good Morning Campers, 

It’s Saturday morning and, as you can see above, Willow Dragon and I are on our own again.  But we can manage this.  We are a team.  We are both working together.  We are … aww, who am I kidding, the pup is sound asleep and I’m on my own. 

But, that’s okay.  It’s a nice, relaxing morning.  I’ve got something stupid on TV, a hot cup of coffee and you guys.  What more could a dragon want?  Life is good.  I have to go to the store, actually to the pharmacy later, and since I can go to the drive-thru, I am considering taking the Willow Dragon along for the ride.  I’d like to get her used to driving so as to have a companion whilst I travel.  We shall see. 

At any rate, let’s get into this

I have found that this is a very common problem for most guys.

We have ALL waited behind a door to scare someone, then leaving because they’re taking too long to come out.

Hardest Thing Ever?

Controlling your laughter at serious times.

 

That’s just ominous.

From Friggin’ Pete: Did you get the feeling that I set you up with those two memes? LMAO!

Why yes…yes, I did.  But, turn about is fair play.  It’s not like I haven’t picked on you in the past.  

And from Cynical John (who has one of the best on line handles of all time): Sounds like you had a great Thanksgiving, all things considered. Best wishes to all there in the Dragon Lair. 

Thanks John.  Yes, we had a really good Thanksgiving.  And all the best to you and yours.

When it’s time to take a nap, it’s time to take a nap.

I’ve always wanted to turn around in a big chair and say, “I’ve been expecting you…”

Today I passed a drug test at work. 

My dealer has some fucking explaining to do.

When I go swimming, I can feel people dressing me with their eyes.

We’re off to see the Dragon; 

The wonderful Dragon of Laffs.

Yup, I’m at LEAST that old. 

Now how about this from Friggin’ Pete:  I agree with you in “normal” as we knew it even 2 years ago, is a thing of the past”. And the simple, yet most complicated, reason is what I have been saying since my youth and it has been shown and proven over and over and over throughout my life. “Once The Government gets a foot inside the door, that door never shuts again.” The Liberal Communists have been kicking at the doors of freedom, here and there, for years now and have managed to kick in a few and get their foot in the door but, the last couple of years, it has been a total, organized attack by all of them, all at once. It is a full assault on America, it is a full assault on freedom and liberty, it is a full assault on our economy, our heath, our education system, our free press, our feelings for our fellow citizens. We will probably never be able to get the doors they have managed to kick in these last couple of years to ever shut again but, in time, we may be able to force them back to the other side of an opened door. We always have hope because (another favorite quote of mine) as long as there is breath, there is HOPE! 

I agree, Pete.  What it will may take is our last breath, our blood, our hope, and our sacred honor.  I know that it will take the courage and the fortitude of the many to stand up to the few.  I do believe it is the many.  I can’t believe that the grand majority of the good and righteous in this country believe in what is going on.  I choose instead to believe that they have followed the rules and believed that good will win out over evil.  But, I’m afraid that good needs a helping hand every now and then.  And when evil is in power, the rules aren’t being followed and to expect otherwise is wishful thinking.  Thanks for your input dear friend. 

And Leah also responded …  In answer to your “normal” comments . . . When I first learned of the holocaust, I was young and stupid and couldn’t understand why the Jews and others let it happen, why didn’t they leave or fight back? I have known what was happening to us and our country, and now I understand. 

It’s easy to see why good people don’t fight back.  Or they fight back within the confines of the rules.  Only the bad people now control the rules and they system in which we use to fight back and it becomes useless and we are left with no recourse because we don’t think like they do.  So, maybe it’s time we do.  I don’t know what that looks like, but I know we have to keep shouting it from the roof tops. 

A really big stash of … oh no wait. That was something else.

Professor:  You’re currently failing your ethics class.  

Me:  [Slides a $20 across the desk] How about now?

I’m super lazy today. 

It’s like normal lazy, but I’m wearing a cape.

Sitting at the ER.  I don’t really want to get into the details, but the “Dyson ball cleaner” is a very misleading product name.

We will continue having meetings until we find out why no work is getting done.

All leaves are cancelled until morale improves.

Oh, how wonderfully ironic

Something Biden can be proud of

Nancy Pelosi’s latest demands: she wants her sister’s ruby slippers returned and vacation pay for the flying monkeys.

Where the hell are THOSE democrats!?!?

If you are  wearing a mask in your car, I’m going to assume it’s to control the urge to lick the windows.

We had another late comment on the “What is Normal” front, from our good friend:

dowchuckil

NORMAL? when every individual takes it upon themself to act like it. I’m thinking most people are waiting for some perceived “super hero” to do it for them. everything from the completely useless mask wearing to the forced vaxx to the distancing to the amount “allowed” to assemble. don’t let the criminal and corrupt, mandate anything that violates your constitutional rights. The rights granted to us now were earned by regular people from the past . some gave their lives to do it. civil disobedience is an accepted and effective way to achieve goals.

Agreed, brother.  When the people in power are telling us to do one thing and they can’t even do it themselves, you know that something is deeply wrong.  Biden, just this weekend, out shopping on Nantucket:

The perfect picture for the times.  What’s good for you, I don’t have to follow.  Do what I say, not what I do.  Why do we let them get away with this?  Civil Disobedience is acceptable and encouraged.  That does NOT include smash and grab robberies like they are doing in California right now.  That’s WRONG!  And the idiots that made robberies like that a misdemeanor are the ones to blame as well as the punks who are doing it.  How can you call yourself a man when you take something that doesn’t belong to you?  How can you look yourself in the mirror and be proud of yourself?  We may not be having a real Christmas this year and I may be scared about where the money is going to come from for my surgery, but I can look myself in the mirror and know that I am doing everything that I can to provide for my family and know that it will be taken care of somehow because God has always provided for us.  I don’t have to go out and steal something from someone else to get it done. 

Okay, I’ve gotten off topic here, but all this shit is beginning to piss me off.  Again, I shouldn’t be watching the news while I put together Dragon Laffs.

Well, it is kind of your fault.  You must not have frightened them enough.  My grand dragonettes would never dream of doing anything like that to me for the very real fear of being eaten when I woke up.

Okay, let’s talk about something before we close out today.  This is an attempt to quell some worry before it gets too far out of hand.  Some of you know what I do for a living and know the specialties and such that I hold, but I am by no means an expert, but perhaps a bit more knowledgeable than the average joe. 

Yes, I’m talking about the new Omicron Variant of COVID that was first identified in South Africa a couple of days ago.  Let me say up front that doesn’t mean it started in South Africa, just that it was first identified in South Africa.  Which is not surprising, since South Africa has some of the most sophisticated and advanced scientific communities on the planet when it comes to epidemiology and microbiology.  They have to because of the environment they live in.  So, for them to discover something like this first, is not surprising at all. 

Anyway, a little basic virology.  Viruses mutate.  The flu virus does every year, which is why the flu shot changes every year and why you are supposed to get a new flu shot every year.  The virologists try to figure out how the flu virus is going to change year to year and prepare a vaccine to combat what they think is going to happen in the coming year. 

It is really not surprising that COVID has mutated yet again.  I know the “experts” said that the Delta variant was the last one.  But, they were full of shit.  As most “experts” are.  Fauci is still trying to push his agenda that this whole thing started in the “wet market” to try to take the heat off him and his China Lab.  Like I said, full of shit.  That guy needs to be put in jail and the complicit Biden administration instead has him in charge of shit. 

Anyway, as I was saying, Viruses mutate.  When they mutate they become more contagious, but less virulent.  What that means is that more people get sick, but they don’t get as sick.  Less people die.  What they are already finding out is that with this variant, people are feeling achy and might have a slight cough, but aren’t losing their sense of smell or taste and are being treated at home.  Like a very mild case of the flu.  If you remember, each new variant of this thing has been less deadly than the last.  And this one, so far, is proving to be the same. 

I only have one worry, and that is HOW this variant came about and what that might mean to long term effects.  We won’t really know that for some time to come.  From what I understand, this variant came about from one person who had COVID and untreated HIV/AIDS and was unvaccinated which all caused this new variant.  That kind of a fucked up cocktail in his system caused this new strain and so far it’s proved to be much weaker than other strains … but we’ll have to see for the future. 

So, we don’t borrow trouble.  Those of us who know what’s going on, kind of expected something like this to happen, so we weren’t surprised when it did and it’s not really going to change anything.  And I would expect that for all of you out there, you would keep on doing the things that you are doing now and not do anything new or take on any new worries.  Please.  Take a sigh of relief, Impish says it’s okay.  I’ll let you know when it’s time to worry. 

Until then, may love and happiness fill your week, until we speak again.
