Southern televangelists have always been quick to interpret natural disasters as God's wrath for our behavior. I hope they don't miss how God feels about Gov. Perry running for President.

|Again - Me Without A Camera!
OK. I just saw the freakiest thing. I'm heading north on Elk Grove/Florin (south Watt) and a hook and ladder firetruck peals out of the Safeway parking lot with it's light on. It's one of those really long jobs and I stay appropriately back behind it in traffic. But then the rear of the truck starts drifting to the side. I didn't follow it because I came to my street but it looked like it was fighting to stay going forward. But it kept going on in to the distance. Firefighters often use the truck to go grocery shopping so they have it if they get a call. But did they leave someone behind...like the rear cap operator? All I can think of is Kramer ain't got the caboose this time. The truck was going straight and using all three lanes.

|More Lame Observations
Christmas today reminds me of a giant pyramid scheme. Half the people want to bail because they realize they can't win (joy). And the other half are screaming "you can't quit now or we'll lose everything" (economy).
Currently in Stores: Amateur Livers 13%, Angry Wives on the phone 43%, Pods 6%.

Because of the pounding political ads on TV, I am abstaining from TV until after the election. So maybe this has been all over the news and I've missed it. Only a few years ago, many were predicting that Halloween was going to overtake Christmas in terms of decorating and merriment.
But something weird has happened. I just went to get something to eat, and as I drove back, I realized: not one house in my neighborhood has decorated for Halloween. Not even the old fashioned stuff that the kids made in school. Nothing!
Now, obviously, the economy must have something to do with it but I wonder if that's the entire picture. We have a lot of folks here now that may have no historical knowledge of Halloween. Kurdish, Sikh, Russian, Hmong and other Chinese immigrants are all well represented here. I wonder if they have any use for or tolerance of halloween revelry. And of course, it's anyone's guess as to how many of these houses are actually vacant or occupied by squatters that are just laying low.
It's just feels like a cold and lonely place considering it's Halloween. Is that an irony?

I love to listen to the sounds out the window at night. Especially Saturday night. But one thing I hate to hear is the hawk screeching. So many of them come now. I know what it means. I know all about the circle of life. Will the friends I made this day be there in the morning? Or just another lump of feathers? Yes, I know what this means.

It's 4:30 in the morning (don't ask) and I'm looking out the windows when I see what I think is smoke. Thinking that a neighbor's house is on fire I grab some pants and head outside. But instead of smelling smoke, it smells like winter. It's the freak'in marine layer just dancing and bobbin along about 200 feet up. WTF! I live in Elk Grove, and it's August, and it's 80 miles to the nearest ocean.

I can feel my skeleton as it bumps against things that
would rather it not. I want to drink coffee but it's still too hot.
The cool air flows now through the window and takes
that last bit of moisture and the last fragment of thought.

| As one slowly loses his memory, I find that it's easier to keep like items in one place. For instance, I keep cable connectors in a box. I keep email addresses in a particular folder. And I like to keep major organs in my body.
Labeling is always good. Of course, some things lend themselves to labeling better than others.

|Shopping at Costco
Inside of the store reeked of urine.
The parking lot had the smell of dead animals.
So you get the layered olfactory experience.
