It’s been another one of those weeks. We had some random thoughts on various subjects, so we’ll list some here.
We went for a walk today, nothing different there, but we noticed a few things. Saw a guy filling his bird feeder so it seemed like an opportunity for an inquiring mind. I asked him why they call it bird seed if it doesn’t get planted, won’t grow birds, and is used for feed? He politely told me to move on.
And if walking can add minutes to your life, does that enable you at 89 years old to spend an additional 5 months in a nursing home at $7000 per month.
A lot of people say we’ll feel better if we excercise more; I feel I’ve gotten enough excercise lately just getting over the hill.
If you teach a child to be polite and courteous; when he grows up, he’ll never be able to merge his car onto the freeway or drive in a big city.
And why is it that lately we’ve been junk mail telling us we’ve won a free gift? Aren’t all gifts free?
If protons have mass, does that make them Catholic?
Walking past a gas station got us to wondering; do you remember full service, getting your windshield cleaned and tires and oil checked? If you remember that, you’d have to remember Green Stamps.
Remember when the 57′ Chevy was just about everybody’s dream car to cruise in, peel out, or watch the submarine races?
And we remember Drive-In movies,Drive-In Restaurants, going steady, getting your bumper height checked by the police, and cruisin’ the ones.
We know a mind is a terrible thing to waste, but we couldn’t help ourselves. The world was getting too serious. Comments on just about anything are welcome.
