What The Heck Is Pinterest?


I used to have Pinterest on my phone, but I lost interest! (Haha! that rhymes!)
Seriously, what is it? I posted some photos, “pinned” some other peoples photos, but what’s the point? I gave it two  tries actually, installed it a year or three ago, never saw the point, deleted it after several months. I reinstalled/uninstalled again a few months ago, thinking maybe I missed something..

I still get emails several times a week, saying someone “repinned one of my pins”

If anyone could explain it to me, I’d appreciate it.

Coming up soon: WTF is LinkedIn?


Have a good weekend!

Happy October


Hard to believe it’s October already. When I was a kid, it seemed like the first half of the year went faster than the second, now it all goes fast. I remember when I turned 40, I thought “This is about half way through my  life.” Let me tell you, the second half is going a lot faster than the first. Turning 40 seem like about 5 minutes ago.

I guess most of the people who read this know I don’t drink, a big part of my not drinking is daily prayer. I pray for help staying sober, and freedom from anger, depression and self-pity, among other things. I really don’t hear much back  from God, I haven’t drank for almost 25 years, so that’s good, but this morning I got angry about 2 seconds after my prayer. As soon as I get up, the cat starts meowing. She’s staying in this giant kennel at night and when we’re gone, till she gets used to the place. We don’t want her running away. So, as agreed, I put the  cat in the bedroom, with my wife, and close the door, as discussed. Well, my  wife gets up, and closes the door better because the cat got out. She said “the cat got out”. No harm no malice, but it took it to mean “You didn’t do a good enough job putting the cat in the bedroom.” So I prayed again: “Ya know God, a little feedback would be nice. I got angry two seconds after I prayed for freedom of anger. A normal person would quit praying. I pray every day and don’t hear anything back. Maybe you have some divine way of operating or sending me a message, but if you send messages I can’t understand, what good is it? I gave up swimming after work because I need to come home and take care of the animals,I gave up studying in the mornings because I need to take care of animals. Do I need to give up my morning exercises too, to take care of animals more? WTF?”

My poor old Ditto is gone, maybe I can start swimming after work again.

That’s how I’m doing this morning.

Ditto Digsby 15 Mar 1999 – 28 Sep 2015


Yesterday Ditto died. I came home from work and he was gone.

Yesterday morning I got mad at him when he had accidents indoors, but before I went to work, we did our forehead to forehead thing and I told him I wasn’t mad at him and I loved him and told him “You is a Ditto very good Ditto baby good boy”. I’ve been saying that to him all his life, with our foreheads pressed together. That was the last time I talked to him. 24 hours ago.

Today I’m taking him to be creamated and we’ll scatter his ashes in our yard.

He was the best dog ever.


I will never ever forget him.

Ashy the new cat is here! She’s a real cutie! So far things are going well.
Ashy and Sheba are giving each other their space. Sheba is more eager to be friends than Ashy.

Weird thing happened this weekend. Saturday morning I went to feed our outdoor cats and their bowls were gone. Usually I stack them up and put two scuba weights in them. We found them later, and the weights near the fence, like something dragged the bowls and weights to the fence and couldn’t get them under.
Freeky deeky!

New Cat Friday

This week was NOT fast like the previous two. I’ll be glad to get home tonight after work.

We’re getting a new cat tonight, an indoor cat. The lady is bringing her over tonight and we’ll see how she (the cat) gets on with the dogs. We’ve set up a kennel for the cat to spend her days in, and hopefully she won’t jump off the balcony.


The Wife has already named the cat Ashley. She’s been looking for a grey cat for along, coming to the conclusion that there were none on the island, when Ashley shows up at the Ritz.

So we’ll see how it goes.

Have a good weekend!



…living on the far side of the moon your whole life, never knowing there was a huge planet out of sight on the other side of the globe beneath your feet.


What if you were an astronomer living on the far side of the  moon, trying to explain why the sun behaved so strangely, not aware that it was the moon acting under the influence of Earths gravity?

On the moon, there is only one sunrise and sunset per month, and the stars are always visible, even in daytime. The sky is always black and full full full of stars, probably more stars than we’ve ever seen on Earth. You’d see all of the planets we see, except Earth.

Think what it would be like, living on the far side of the moon.

A Cat Drinking Water


I tried to post from my phone, but WordPress isn’t set up on it yet, so I emailed this photo to my tablet and I’m posting it here. The Wife has found a new cat she wants, an indoor cat. We’ll get her if we can. We have two dogs and five cats already, but the cats are all outdoor cats. The dogs are indoors.

Bad headache this morning. My neck. Owie! Plus bad brain damage from sleeping.

Ciao for now!

Pix Of The Wrecked Plane

Like I said yesterday, not very impressive. But if you look at the pic I posted yesterday; you can  recognize the three wheels!

Have  a  happy Tuesday!

Monday O Monday

Monday, When the alarm went off, I was having a dream that this girl was riding a weighted sled down to a submerged car to get something out through the open sunroof. I can’t remember now what she was getting, but I know I knew in my dream. The water was surprisingly cold and murky.    She was wearing a red thick wetsuit, and as she headed down, I realized I couldn’t descend fast enough, and I couldn’t hold my breath long enough. I thought the car was very shallow, since we weren’t using tanks.

Speaking of diving, I went diving this weekend, and snorkeling. First we went to look for an old airplane in the North Sound, we found it very easily. It was a PBY Catalina, but the engines and propellers were gone. All three wheels were there and sheets of metal. It was a junkyard.


I have unimpressive pics on my camera, which is in my car. I’ll post some tomorrow. After that, we did a dive at a site called Bears Paw, it was a good dive, nice coral, but nothing spectacular.

Sunday the wife and I drained, cleaned and refilled our hot tub, and had a quiet day at home.

Now it’s Monday, and I’m headed in to work.

Have a great week!
