There's a doin's a transpirin...

There's a doin's a transpirin...

This was my entertainment the other evening. It was a misty night after work. I was on dogsitting duty this weekend. I was leaving my folks' house, and I saw odd lights on the southern horizon. And by horizon, I mean pretty much the entire third of the sky from south/southwest to due east was being lit up with green, blue, yellow and orange light, flickering and alternating in no pattern I could tell.

Being a curious cat, I drove in that direction. I didn't want to get in anybody's way, but I had a train of thought that no housefire I'd ever seen lit up the sky in that manner. And if it were police lights, it had to be a hella bunch, and I'd get turned away before I could cause trouble.

I wandered toward Highway 11, and then south. I (along with several others) was detoured a couple miles before the fact. I didn't find out what was going on until much later. But, yeah. When a substation decides to give up the ghost, it'll light the sky up something fierce.


My friend, sometime blogger and commentor here Diane had a baby the other morning. They named him Jack, and he popped into the world at a hefty 8 lbs. 11 ounces.

I would like to mention that I was a mere 8 pounds, 8 ounces at birth, and I'm a helluva sunuvagun now....


Gooseneck is blogging again. My apologies to Troy, for not noting this earlier, when he sent me the e-mail. "Real Life" got in the way, and I'm a forgetful sumbitch even on the best of days. And lately, it's not been the best of days


Been thinking about the latest Indiana Jones flick. My initial reaction was negative. Color me disappointed, I guess. I've had some time to ruminate on the flick, though. It's still my least favorite of the Indy movies, but I've come to accept it a little more easily.

That vine thing with Shia though? That's some slaw. Even for an Indiana Jones movie. Took me out of the experience entirely.


Working six days this week. Boss is on vacation. Pray for me, people. Pray for me.
