Remember, if I'm caught drunk driving I lose my CDL for a year and cannot work in my field. Why should it be any easier for a police officer who we expect to uphold the law and be cut from a better jib than the rest of us?
Someone in Tampa is very unhappy as somehow their 60 pounds of pot ended up on the side of the road and was picked up by the freeway cleanup crew. (here) It looks like the pot is fresh from a grow house. Y'know, its not like the FHP did any real work to find this pot or anything, so I don't get the posing with the contraband. What a waste of perfectly good ganja.
This reminds me of some stories I've seen about people who get thier stomachs stapled and the docs fuck up and they burp shit and stuff like that. I've tossed and turned a stomach staple but its stories like this that scare the hell out of me and lead me to think I'll just be a fat ass instead of burping feces.

Holes 2 and 3 were backed up as there was a really slow fivesome coming up on 3. They were slow and looked like one or two of them were new. So, I jumped over to 4 and figured I'd play 2 and 3 later. This turned out to be a good idea as I don't think I would have finished before it got dark.
I hit a good tee shot but stubbed the fairway shot and three putted for 7. Great, all this misery for $11.
But, that was it for crappy shots as I pulled my head out of my ass and bogied the final 7 holes to card a 45 with 19 putts. Par for me at this course is 42.5 for 9 holes so I played a bit more to my par than the last two times I was here.
I only hit one bad chip, a bit too hard and over the green. I saved bogie with a 1 putt. And, sadly on 7 I hit the green from the tee but three putted for bogie. 3 putt bogies do not make me happy. But, I played a lot more consistant and that's what I'm looking for.

-- Anne Nicol Gaylor, wording proposed to counter religious displays. Appears on annual Winter Solstice sign displayed at the Wisconsin State Capitol every December.
Its Anne's birthday today. She helped found the FFRF, of which I'm a proud member.

The bartender replies, "Normally, cats wouldn't be allowed in the bar, but it's not very busy in here right now, so you and the cat can have a seat at the end of the bar. But, if there's any trouble with you or the cat, I'll have to ask you to leave."
The guy agrees, and he and his cat start watching the game.
Pretty soon the Niners kick a field goal and the excited cat jumps up on the bar and walks down the bar and gives everyone a high five.
The bartender says, "Hey, that's pretty cool! Does he do that for every field goal?" The guy nods, "Yeah, every time."
The bartender asks, "What does he do for a touchdown?"
The guy answers, "I don't know, I've only had him for 3 years." <<
Y'know, this would be funnier if the Raiders weren't as shitty as the Niners. But, I hate the fucking Niners with a passion. Giants, Niners, the whole city (except for Basic Brown Bear) can fall in the ocean and I wouldn't shed a tear.

When I went to Kansas the first time, during the Times Of Trouble, I got gas down the block from the plant as I left for Kansas straight up from work. I was using a viedo camera a lot back in the day and I filmed the gas prices at $1.80 a gallon. I commented that though it was a gouge that day, one day it would be looked back on fondly. And, that day certainly has come.

I also wonder if the Boulder kids have any sports teams. After all, don't sports promote "unhealthy competition?" Goddamn, touchy feely bullshit. And, they're next door to Denver to boot. Losers.

This old Studebaker was at the golf course today and I couldn't resist a few pics for the blog. My mom tells the story when I was a toddler we were riding in the car and I said the word "studebaker." She asked me where I saw that word and I told her "s-t-u-d-e-b-a-k-e-r, its right on that car." Scared the hell out of her. I was 2 or 3 years old.
