Fatwa Arbuckle: Unperson
Editor

Caturday salutations from drizzly -- and possibly thunderstorm-y -- Larryville. Oh well, at least our unseasonably cold snap has temporarily abated; we’ve got a couple of unseasonably warm days on tap, followed by more unseasonable cold.

CLIMATE CHAOS…AIEEEEEEEEEE! Guess I should finish our shrine to Saint AlGore. 👿

Paddy’s tale of The Younger’s boat trip, in combination with Mac’s thread GIF, reminds me of when, many years ago, two of the horn players from the band I was in decided to go SCUBA diving. The water was more than a little choppy out Catalina-way and one of them got moderately seasick.

The flinty boat captain was quite solicitous and kept asking stuff like, “Can I get you anything…like a warm mayonnaise sandwich?”

(That became a running band, erm, gag at rehearsals, because we were all bad people.)

Hi, Fatwa -- happy Saturday, GN.

Sad but not unexpected news about Bush 41 dying -- now that he’s dead, it gives the media and the rest of the chattering class a chance to say how wonderful he was. Well, except for the metoo side of America -- they’ll believe that Bush’s entire life story comes down to him maybe touching a woman’s butt without permission.

“Warm mayonnaise sandwich” Classic. Mean, but classic.

Congrats on the refi, Mac, and the relief from unpaid bills. We refinanced earlier this year for another 30 years and it knocked off about $500 from the monthly payment. We have no plans to pay off this house nor to live the rest of our lives here, so that made the most sense. I’ve been worried about getting by on one income sometime in the next couple of years so reducing monthly expenses is the goal.

It’s interesting, Mac, that the cats you are caring for are OK in another house -- Unlike dogs, I never thought cats were that adaptable to new environments or change.

Cat’s Eye -- despite it being Stephen King, it’s a movie worth watching. Love the troll. And it does feature an effective quit smoking method.

Speaking of cats, the other day as I was going to work, I noticed that there were mouse entrails on the stair landing. Man, I just didn’t want to clean up the mess so I stepped carefully around it, pretended not to see it, left the light on, and figured Mrs Sven would clean it up. Nope. She did the same thing and I cleaned it up when I got home that night.

We have become white trash.

As predictable as night following day: Now that he’s dead, President Bush was a great man. Assh*les.
