    people are odd...

    since we're in the storm track for Hurricane Harvey, the local forecast for this wkend is 8-10 inches of rain.

    on my ride this morning, saw three people hand-watering their landscaping...

    uhhhh, why...? can't think of a single rational explanation...

    They're simply being good Americans, being excessive and wasteful....anything less would be un-American! That's why we're ranked #1 in the world in terms of awesomeness.

    Only slightly worse than the people out watering their lawn at 2PM in the afternoon on a sunny weekend...

    We have some kind of flowers in a hanging basket. I got in trouble today for not watering them before my wife got home from running Hurricane Prep errands.

    We are now at 0.4 inches of rain, and only getting started.

    People are strange when you're a stranger. Faces look ugly when you're alone. Women seem wicked when you're unwanted. Streets are uneven when you're down. When you're strange faces come out of the rain. When you're strange no one remembers your name. When you're strange, when you're strange.

    "When the still sea conspires an armor
    And her sullen and aborted
    Currents breed tiny monsters
    True sailing is dead!
    Awkward instant
    And the first animal is jettisoned
    Legs furiously pumping
    Their stiff green gallop
    And heads bob up
    Poise
    Delicate
    Pause
    Consent
    In mute nostril agony
    Carefully refined
    And sealed over"

    Got this on memorized too! How bout you Grumps?
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....
