i am not dead

I am not dead.

I have some news then latter this week I have a “true” story for yall.

I have only named one shoe because the other one has not shown sufficient personality to justify naming.

The USS Alabama was fun. The boys climbed on every gun, into every bunk, in every room cubbyhole and bathroom aboard the vessel.

We slept pretty well; it was like being inside of a sawmill with a really bad echo. We had some world-class snorers going at it.

The bunks were three high. I was laying on the bottom bunk which was about 6 inches off the floor when a boy came running by and barfed on the floor about 18 inches away from my face. We got that cleaned up, and off we went into blissless slumber.

Then a kid behind me, earlier in the day, bought in the gift store a plaster rock with a fossil in it he accidentally pushed it off his top bunk about 2:30 am. Inside of a metal vessel it sounded like as if a Japanese battleship torpedoed us.

My oldest son joined our church Sunday, He and I went through an 8 week series about what it all means. He and I both enjoyed it, such things bring up the sort of conversations that kids enjoy and I relish. I gave him a new grown up bible Sunday morning. He was impressed. I love being a Daddy.

Winifred quit her job at Pizza hut. When I asked why, she said, “Someone was stealing my tips”.
I said well “ why did you not put it in your pocket or a fanny pack or your apron or your bra or some other equally inaccessible place.
Her response was “someone stole my apron”.
Then I explained that while now no one was stealing her tips now, she is also not getting any tips herself. I then gave her an invaluable tip. “Get a job and cling to it like grip death”. I told her if she could get a job that pays anything at all that she better keep it even if she is required to paint her butt blue and try to communicate with baboons.
We shall see.

In other news I went bow hunting the other day. Nothing.

For those of you who know about bows and wonder what I shoot
A Hoyt hyper Tec 70-80 lbs and I shoot 2413 29-½ inch arrows with muzzy 3 blades 125 grain. The bow is set at 78 pounds.

In yet other news.
I have poison oak again. Itch itch itch.
