My Vacation Water Rescue

Sure, I helped in a water rescue while on vacation. It was nothing. No need to heap praise or adulation on me. A key to the city might be nice, but I’m not pushing for it.

My wife had used a painful foot injury as a lame (pun intended) excuse to avoid shopping with relatives. So I was in downtown Grand Ledge, Michigan walking endlessly from shop to shop while looking for something sharp to purchase and thrust into my heart.

Part of the group I was with took a break from the excitement of shopping to walk along the river. My grand-niece commented that a man was calling 911. On us? I went to confront him and cause a scene. Anything to get out of more shopping to come.

So now they wanted to look to see if they could find a reason for my fall hiding in the old attic.

As I lay on the table, I wondered how Donald Trump could ever get an MRI brain scan in a machine like this …

Happy Flynn Flip Friday!

It’s my birthday today, but nobody cares, including me. My birthday is being completely overshadowed by Flynn Flip Friday which is fine by me.

Happy James Comey Day!

The long-awaited day is finally here, along with news that Melania and Barron Trump will be moving into the White House on June 14th. This is really odd news considering that James Comey’s testimony before the Senate Committee today all but guarantees that Donald Trump will be moving out of the White House soon. Upon reflection, maybe that’s why she’s moving in.
