There's an old man sitting in his car on my street. Lights off, engine not running, windows up, and club across his steering wheel. I dropped off the plastic plant pot in my driveway and u-turned to ride by again. I had to give a nod for looking at him, and he had to mouth some greeting.
My plastic mailbox had let some rainstorm in, which made my Bonus Eligibility Miles offer harder to tear in two. I had forgotten there was a hunk of cornbread left, and ate it with leftover stir-fry, then finished the fake ice cream that I was going to save for tomorrow's breakfast. I'm wondering, again, where these house flies are coming from. I was wondering the same thing before leaving the house this morning and before going to bed last night.
Sometimes ideas bounce around nicely as thoughts, but don't hold their shape when you take them out and stand the words up.
On the way home, I had reminded myself to look up "velodrome trackstand" videos and send one to Frank. So YouTube collected much of the waning evening. I guess that Google made some money for me doing that, but I don't know how.
I don't think the old man's out there anymore. I didn't want to walk too close to his car, in case he was there, (maybe for fear I'd have to nod again,) but I didn't see a head or any white hair. I looked stupid walking half a block and turning around. Maybe he got tired of feeling sorry for himself.
No posts about your worms? :)

You're right JeniQ, they deserve some attention.
I'm trying not to bug them much, and figure out the right amount to feed them.
When I feel they're sufficiently happy, I'll try to get a couple more pics, and talk a bit about them.

And good thing you got outta the US. This place mayn't be big enough for the both of us.
Okay sir, you're a Lebowski, I'm a Lebowski, that's terrific.
You're from a Freeport and I'm from Fairport... Yes? Yes?

I hope you don’t have any relatives in Michigan. Because, I have a ton that I have never even met. They take up haft the state and could cause an uprising at any moment.
My mothers side is Irish, and as for Schuler. Well, I just hope we are not part of the holocaust. Lol My dad was a USMC vet of WWII.
The best thing is now I know where all those bounced check I wrote came from.

Don't remember seeing either Cherks or Clerks II.
My eyes are different colors... and neither one is blue.
I've thrice been to Michigan,
but only met my not-of-kin,
I'm half-Irish, half-German
How'd you know I'm obsessive?
Is this conversation proof, (or is it just weird)?

Hi Jeff Schuler its Jeff Schuler here again
I'm half-Irish, half-German: that,s it!
Are you a giving person, but yet very selfish with your own stuff?: yes
Are you a single child or the youngest in your family? My brother and sister are 15 years older than me so I was like a single child. I was also an uncle at the 4 mo. old. Lol
Some of my friends called me "shoe" in school but it didn't really stick for to long.
Some called me "shoe shoe" as a term of endearment.
Cheers Jeff Schuler
