Another Edition of … Random Thoughts

Is it just me, or is this sign really confusing with all the arrows?


My wife offers to give our dogs food if they allow her to clean their ears. She has never made me such an offer, one which I surely would accept.


For 6 straight days last week, I was the smartest person in the world. In those 6 glorious days, I solved Wordle in 3 tries every day. As it became clear that I had evolved into an intellectual superior super-being, I decided to put my increased brainpower to work by curing cancer or figuring out how to win the lottery. However, it was too late. I was soon back to Wordle solutions in 4 or 5 tries. Today, after trying several “words” that I thought were actual words, but were actually gibberish, I finally stumbled across the solution after 4 attempts. I then thought to myself, “Me should finish blog post.” Oh well, back to business as usual.


As I went in for my final visit for my spermidine clinical trial, I noticed this new clinical trial being advertised.

The money’s good, but I would have to gain a bunch of weight and get diagnosed with diabetes pretty quickly. I’m debating whether it’s worth it or not. Oh, why couldn’t this condundrum have come up when I was on my “Wordle in 3 Tries” streak?


The weather is getting chillier, so I opened up the gift I received when I recently went to see the Chicago Bears play football.

One Chicago Bears sleeve. One. Uno. Less than the two arms that I have. How am I going to keep both arms warm with one sleeve? Oh, sure, some know-it-alls like my wife suggest wearing long-sleeved shirts. But how can I support my losing local football team if I’m not wearing their novelty sleeves? The logical solution to me is to get one arm amputated. But which one? Once again, I need “Wordle in 3 Tries” clarity.


Fall and Halloween decorations are out at the Flanigan house. Even Lola got a new Halloween haircut and a “scary” Halloween kerchief.

Sorry if that kerchief with witch’s hat was too intense for younger or more sensitive readers. Hope you have a great fall, especially if you take a trip.
