No Post Today

Why? Because I just couldn’t make up my mind. Does that ever happen to you? First I was going to get back to the story of Colonel Bob’s son. Have I actually even started it? But it’s pretty complicated, and while I was sorting that out, this discussion broke out between Bernie, Spence, and Admin. Those hardly ever happen and they never go well. Bernie had a glass of bourbon, Spence had a beer, and Admin drank water. Hey! Just like me. Admin and I have something in common! I’ll try to think of more in-common things. Maybe some other  time. But meanwhile this discussion was all about killer whales. It got a little heated, for example, Admin saying, “Notice the killer part, right in their name? Combine that with the equivalent of locking them up in a tiny cell and what have you got?” I didn’t know, had no idea what was going on. Then I remembered that Bernie said there’s some kind of question down below about Nance. Nance? Isn’t she breaking rocks in the hot sun long about now? What comes first, the trial or the rock breaking?

See how confusing this is? So no post today. What’s that over there? A nice little patch of sun on the rug? Hard to resist. In fact, impossible.

“Here’s something from Wales,” Bernie says. I know whales from Animal Planet and all I can say is wow. But Bernie loses me right away. “A four-year old cocker spaniel named Nell went missing on her walk and her owner searched for her for two days with no luck. Then they decided to look in old abandoned mine shafts – kind of like what we have out here – and they found Nell at the bottom of an eighty foot deep shaft. They lowered a guy down and he brought Nell up, completely unhurt.”

So what’s the takeaway? A spaniel got swallowed by a whale? That reminds me of some other story I once heard Bernie tell. I’ll try to remember what it was, maybe after breakfast.
