#2,000 YGTBSM

 As near as I can tell I started blogging in December 2008. Dumfounded, I am, that I still blog. This will be post #2,000.

It deserves something “epic”. My “epic” tank is running on fumes.

Those bloggers who post daily, or even several times a week, blow me away.

There is always something of interest on the political scene.

Another “woke” candidate. Just what we need, no?

Changing times and morals? I was surprised to find this article in our local rag.


To date, we have had just a skiff of snow. Winter snow is not here and not yet on the horizon. This is bad news for the region and for those depending on the Colorado River.

Speaking of winter.

Last week, driving to McCook, NE, I didn’t see any “green” in the planted winter wheat fields. This year’s crops were decent, even record high, in some areas. Most of the small town grain elevators were operating, even on a Saturday, and railcars were lined up for loading.  Next year?

Farmers are the biggest gamblers. Next in line are farm implement dealers. The sales yards I passed seemed to be low on inventory. Someone more knowledgeable than me needs to draw conclusions from that observation.

The used car lots I passed seemed to have a decent inventory. Prices? Unknown; I didn’t have time to stop and check.

Preaching to the Choir – will the sinners take head?

The auto repair shop I prefer is busy but I have an appointment on the 10th for a minor tune up. What I suspect will be their recommendations.

The neighbor across the hall got these for Banner. He wears them with aplomb, much to the delight of others in the building. The strobe effect lights are hard to capture in a snap.
He was moping this morning. Instead of my usual bacon and eggs, I had a bowl of blueberries. He kept pushing into the desk well.

"Where is my bacon grease?"

After an hour of this, I cooked some bacon in the microwaves. After the plate cooled, he got his bacon grease fix. Then he went to the couch to catch up on his napping. I forced myself to eat the bacon. After all, waste not; want not.

Thank you.

With CO's crooked Secretary of State, no cleanup is to be expected in the blue counties.

Well Seasoned Fool said...

Thank you. Banner probably disagrees.

mmm 2008, I have been a fan for years, but not quite that long. I too am amazed by the number of bloggers with not just daily output, but daily quality as well. I try, but it is just not a talent for me, as the ability to write well is with you.
Keep on Sir. you are valued.

Congratulation on the milestone. If they asked me what I wanted for a last meal it would be sausage gravy over a homemade biscuit topped with a lot of crispy bacon. So I'm with banner Where's my Bacon.

I sent a message about 6 months ago regarding a turn of the century book, 1903, on railroad and transportation. I don't know if you got it or if you replied and it went into spam. If no interest or know anyone who might like the book just put a note here. Packing for a book sale daughter put it into the donate pile. But if it doesn't get sold there it'll go to pulp purchasers at the end. I hate seeing 100+ books destroyed.
