Miscellaneous Sarcasm

My lack of blogging is due to learning a new route and routine, and further messing up an already dysfunctional company. Yep, I fit right in.

Have some miscellaneous sarcastic ideas that I wanted to put to paper, and/or molest electrons as the case may be.

Just because cattle were once trail driven from West Texas to Moorcroft, WY is no reason for the BNSF railroad to name a siding near Torrington, WYWest Texas”.  On the best day of the best century, West Texas never looked that good.

You can tell the level of involvement of people in agriculture by the number of functioning lights on their stock trailer. Fewer lights, more involved. Don’t know how to classify the people I saw today with their trailer electrical plug sitting on the hitch. To their credit, they had their pickup lights on and were diligently signaling lane changes. Plus, the trailer was rusty and wobbled going down the road. Total involvement? 

Denver International Airport has a “cell phone parking lot” where you can wait for your people pickups to let you know you they have arrived. It was far too convenient alongside the arrival road. Now you exit with all the rental car returns and navigate three traffic lights to get to the lot and to get out of the lot. Instead of large signage, there is now a tiny sign. Just another way the City of Denver shows their care for the citizens.

So I’m number eight in a line of cars on a two lane road with a 45 mph speed limit. I’m sure the jackass behind me sitting one car length off my bumper is pushing the seven cars in front of me to go faster.

On a positive note, I’m still breathing air and taking nourishment. Mega doses of MSM and tart cherry juice has pushed the pain in my knees back down to a tolerable level.  Life is good!


  1. Yeah, that cell phone lot in Denver SUCKS! Re the other, glad the knee is feeling better!

    1. They have an unused building that would make a nice restaurant and a lot of solid concrete apron from the days of toll booths. Instead they throw down some cheap asphalt next to a "Food Emporium" and enclosed it with Jersey barriers and add a few portable toilets. Probably hired three consulting firms and attended a conference in Bali to implement that plan. Yes, it SUCKS! Warning to any visitors. Something about that airport and roads bring out the crazy in Colorado drivers (not saving they are wrapped tight to begin with).

  2. I'm not sure of your definition of involvement. Sounds like NO-involvement to me. Work the hoss till it drops then get another one. And no one can figure out the mentality of folks driving in traffic. I also know your pain with the knees. Mine is the hip when I drive for long periods. Stay safe out there on the road.

    1. Rumors fly but as long as my pay is deposited and I'm assigned work, I'll keep showing up.

      Seems my insurance company and the hospital came to some agreement. Now my balance is below $900. All the other quacks copays are paid off so in two or three months I can re-retire.

      People keep talking "knee replacement". Yeah, when I can only get around by crawling.

  3. LOL. Your sarcasm is much appreciated. Keep healthy. Don't eat gophers or get any fleas on you down there.

  4. Some people say I am a plague. The future may bring fewer prairie dogs.

  5. I love sarcasm. It's my 2nd favorite 'asm'.
    I need my left knee replaced, but it's not going to happen until I can't walk at all. And maybe not even then.

    Work comp sucks.
