Today still lives in infamy, AFAIC.

Here’s to Little Boy and Fat Man.

===================

The jet stands at the end of the runway and throttles up to full power while the pilot stands on the brakes.

Criminy…why not just install freakin’ catapults and be done with it?

[Eyeroll]

===================

For non-musicians: “pizzicato” (or “pizz.”) tells orchestral string players to pluck the notes, rather than bow them (“arco”).

That seems like it would make some kind of boinging sound….

Hey, dv8 (and Harper!!1!)

1) Y’mean like hitting it and then stepping on the pedal? 🙂

2) You’d need some really strong fingers to pinch a tympani head like that (unless it was so loose it only produced a carpy thud when you hit it with a mallet).

Tuesday and Wednesday done. Came in just over 12 hours. Better than average for lately. Didn’t get too distracted.

I did stop during The Big Route and ate Circle K hotdogs and ate a couple of cherry pies on the way home. Continuing my Holliday eating, which I’m sure I’ll end up regretting.

Very close to 10K followers on Twitter. Not sure if I’ll know my first Marxist handler when I see him.

I’m off TOR, evidently.

Our New Roku TV is out for delivery, so we should get it some time today.

BTW, purchased at cyber Monday prices. Well under $150.

I hate myself for loving Amazon.

I think Amazon is our Costco at this point, because:

  1. Costco is too far away,
  2. Sam’s club is in Flagstaff, and we’re not getting up there very often these days, so I hope the membership doesn’t auto renew. I actually have no idea about that.
  3. We get Amazon Prime for half Price due to an MS discount which we found out about a couple of years ago.

Somber Remembrance Day, Gerbil Nation.
Good morning, Fatwa, and dv8 (and Harper!).

I got a call earlier this morning that Mrs. Paddy’s uncle who lives in the Philippines passed away. He had a major stroke a few weeks ago, so it wasn’t surprising. He’s caused lots of issues and dissent in the family with some of the actions he’s taken and accusations he’s made, so his passing is not being met with the amount of grief one might expect.

Fatwa -- I LOL’d at the pic you posted. Thanks!

dv8 -- glad the Big Route went well. Enjoy your new TV and try to enjoy holiday comestibles in moderation. For me, if I can keep from gaining weight, I’ll be happy. Let us know how you get along with your first Marxist handler.

Drive-by:

Hi, Paddy and Mac!

Paddy --

Hope the passing of Mrs. Paddy’s uncle doesn’t cause further dissent within the family.

Beware the eyes of Marx !

Who are you going to believe…him or your lying eyes. 🙂
