drought, men, football musings


earlier this year i was so excited that we got a lot of rain
luckily i was able to capture a lot of it in my rainwater tanks
but we never completely filled up to full capacity

its looking like we wont do that this winter
we have not had any rain in the month of november
the last time thats happened was 115 years ago
we arent headed towards the dust bowl again are we

we are now classified where i live in a severe drought
i watched as northern california got plummeted with rain
this weekend
why cant some of that stuff head our way

the meteorologists just tease us with 10% and 20% chances
of rain each week
i know they do that one to make us feel better and to have
and two
so their weeks prediction map wont be the same
hot dry no rain no clouds

heck this weekend i went outside to take a leak
as i do live in the country and thats one of the benefits and
to save rainwater of course
it was so dry the moisture never made it to the ground
just evaporated before it hit the ground
thats how  i was going to kill those weeds
that way i dont have to use roundup


one of my classmates who was a gyn doctor for over 25 years
had to stop practicing following a terrible accident after she
fell asleep driving back from delivering her niece back to college
she went over  a cliff and sustained multiple injures that
resulted in a long painful rehab and recovery
at least my medical retirement is painless at least physically

she seems  to have kept her sense of humor though

one of my favorite rotations i did when i was a resident was
my obstetrics rotation as an intern
luckily it was later in the year
so when i rotated with her she had done so many deliveries
and procedures that she took her time to allow me to
do things that normally i might not have been able to learn
thanks jrc

she posted on facebook this funny entry
after practicing for 27 years she had never thought much
about this but noticed how so many of womens
problems begin with men

mental breakdowns


the eagles have not landed
theyve crashed

how about them cowboys
they sure mess with us dont they

jets sanchez out of game
now tis tebow time
nope it was mcelroy time
and he got it done

old man steeler qb did his job

best bowl matchup i want to watch is
the oregon ducks fast break team vs kansas states
just get it done offense and defense
and mr collin klein who does the same
he does what is needed to win

then oklahoma got bumped from the bcs bowl
and landed a game against the aggies and johnny football
in the cotton bowl
thats a game ill watch also

then the horns get the alamo bowl against the beavers
for the season theyve had thats about where they need to be

now for the long long long wait for the bcs championship game
by then we probably wont care who wins

  1. Funny you mention going outside to pee, I mean kill weeds. It's been said, The whole world is a man's urinal." I agree, there's benefits to living in the country.

  2. since we use rainwater as our complete water system this save 5 gallons
    you do the math to see how much is saved in a years time

  3. Well, I love JC's observation! But, don't think my man is my problem. I am blessed!
