Random Thoughts & Confusion

Hey pals of the world and all other life out there in the Universe. Good Day! As you can see from the above pictures, I just had a hard time deciding which beverage to drink. Here is my decision. I decided to drink 5 cups of coffee today, and 7 cans of Diet Ditto. Around here near Seattle, we call it Pretend 7-up. It is so delicious. I spend $1.99 a half case at Safeway for Diet Ditto if I buy 15 half cases at a time. I think it's $2.09 for a half case one at a time. I take advantage and buy the 15 cases. Last count, I have a ton of Diet Ditto in the garage. Stacked all the way to the ceiling. That's the good news....bad news....I lost my gardening tools in the garage.....not really.....just my bike.

Gonna get my right knee replaced September 7th 2010. Partial knee replacement. Doctor B. said the outside of my knee looks like an 18 year old knee....inside looks like really old guy that walks bole legged, hardly smiles, burps alot, eats way too much sugar, knows everything, drives way too fast, never listens, afraid of everything, cries alot, worries about gray hair, and is just plain weirdesh. I said Doc....lets get that knee outa here! He said 'OK'. I swear I saw dollar signs reflecting off of his eyeballs when he said 'OK'. I'm afraid of anesthesia, so I told him I'd tough it out with no anesthesia...just do it fast. He said no way. I'm looking for a new doctor.

Talking about knee replacements, I have a new gold crown top left. Hey, it lasted 73 years before I had to act. The dentist did a swell job, being as young as he is. I tried selling him a life insurance policy while in the chair, and he reminded me that I sold flooring, not life insurance.
I told him I had a good policy to show him.....he agreed, and when I meet him I'll do the bait-and-switch....instead of insurance, I'm walking away with a laundry room floor sale.

Still having rain out here in Seattle area. Clouds are at about 970 feet today. Just enough to tease us, knowing full well the the sun is at 971 feet. Dang it!

We don't close our airports when we get rain - we keep 'em open. You guys back east close your airports when it snows. Big babies.

Chris and I had Teriaki chicken from Happy Lake Teriaki......had some left today we eat chicken salad sandwiches garnished with green olives stuffed with red pimento. The drink of choice for me will either be coffee, of Diet Ditto. Chris....water. Too healthy. She may fool me and have milk. Too healthy.

Granddaughter Lulu spent the night with Chris and me last night. It was fun getting bossed around by two women all night long. Love 'em both. Just don't ask about the dress and makeup I had to wear last night. Makeup was OK....dress was way too ugly.

Looking out the window, I estimate cloud cover now at 870 feet....sun know it.. 871 feet.

Airport still open.

Going to work tonight. Drug and Alcohol treatment center. Great job. Amazing place. Wonderful staff and patients.

Oh.....gotta go. My love is calling me. I think she has chores for me to do. Oh well.


  1. Oh Tom,
    You are just too crazy! (of course, in a "good way") Sorry about the rain, but I'd take your year round warmer temps with rain over humidity any day. Sorry about the knee.... Out there wishing you luck in your drink decision... Dee Dee

  2. Lost your bike.....check our garage.....hehe.

  3. Hi Tom, That's a whole lot of coffee and Ditto! I think I would be up all night, mainly in the bathroom to empty my bladder. But the price sounds great!

    Okay calling us babies for closing our airports when it snows. Maybe you should have been here this past winter.

    Rain, rain, rain....maybe you could share some with us. Here we are with yet another heat wave...temps going to be 100 degrees this week. YUK...

    I think I hear your wife calling again did you sneak out on the chores she had for you...quick hide in the garage. Have a great week....Jude

  4. I wasn't sure what to comment on so I'll choose . . . cloud cover.

    My son was taking a college course and the topic of solar energy came up. His professor said there are two places in the US where it won't work. The Pacific northeast [where you live] and the sourthern shore of Lake Ontario [where I live]. So be sure to take your vitamin D3 pill today.
