Happy Cuttleday, Wheelizens!

Well-played, Punster Mac. Any mention of cuttlefish reminds me of teh Pythons’ Dead Parrot sketch.

I watched several of those commercials and still have no recollection of Wackies.

I had only a very dim recollection which I had to double-check online before “challenging” my brother. Wackies certainly weren’t on the market very long; I’ve a suspicion the artificially-flavored banana “marshmallow” bits were so profoundly vile that even kids wouldn’t eat them.

Happy Caturday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa!

In line with today’s marine theme, Teh Younger is going on a marine mammal cruise (whale watching) this morning for work. Earlier this week they spotted a blue whale (the largest mammal), which is definitely cool.

I’m off to set up Cub Scout daycamp, which starts on Monday. Fortunately, it looks to be a bit cooler today.

Have fun, y’all and remember to refill those water bottles with the correct liquids (the one on the right is water).

I’m on Day 4 of not smoking. Not much fun, but so it goes. It’s the first time in 25 years that I’ve gone a day without smoking.

Thanks, Mac. It’s my first serious attempt, but good to know that you were able to quit.

Thanks for sharing your story, Mac.

I had planned on quitting this weekend after finishing up an audio version of Alan Carr’s book, The Easy Way to Stop Smoking, and getting used to some drugs from my doctor, but after a smoke break at work I decided there was no reason to wait.

That first day sucked. And the second wasn’t much better. I had two panic-like attacks where I had to get outside and walk around the building 3-4 times, but things now seem to be settling down. It’s actually harder not to smoke at home than it is at work.

If I can get through this weekend, I think I’ll have a shot at stopping for good.
