Well, well. Well, well, well. It is on, as they say, like a neckbone.

Thing that gets me is people are still shocked at how low they'll go. I know some folks are financially invested in pretending conservatives in general and the Republican party in particular aren't giant goddamn hypocrites who'll drop every proclaimed principle at the drop of a hat for the least little bit of edge. But let's be grown ups here.

Another lazy Sunday has come and gone. The sun kept behind the clouds, rains misted the ground and I stayed in bed and read about Socrates while listening to country blues. Recommended.

Well, the Big Wind blew through Northeast Mississippi all day. Liked to have blown us clean off the map, too.
Friday, October 25, 2019
The rain's moved in and it's been coming down all day. Perfectly suited for extreme napping. However, Tropical Storm Olga has kicked up in the Gulf and is heading our way with more rain this weekend. Fine by me.

I was telling both the Therapist and the Psych Doc that the most difficult part of all this was coming up with the opening paragraph. It's not exactly a lede for a newspaper story or an opening paragraph for an essay, because whatever this is, it isn't either of those. Anyway.

After yesterday's big storms, it has cleared out and gotten pretty cool hereabouts. Beautiful weather, though. I've said it before about New Orleans, but Fall in Northeast Mississippi is when it shines, as well. What Daddy would call "football playing weather".
Monday, October 21, 2019
The much-promised thunderstorms we were promised have moved and are slowly easing along. We've gotten plenty of rain but nothing like the nasty weather Dallas or even Shelby County saw. Otis is pouting at me because I won't let him go outside.
Sunday, October 20, 2019
Sunday morning coming down. First one in a long time without a net, and it's not so bad. Granted, I spent most of the day reading Ambrose Bierce, watching the Saints, and napping, so what do I know.
Saturday, October 19, 2019
Not real sure where or what to start with today. It's been a pretty lazy day, Saturday notwithstanding. Even Otis was ready come back in and go to bed by the time I'd brought the newspaper back up the hill.
Friday, October 18, 2019
Better frame of mind today, despite the grayness of the sky. It's cool and there's a bite in the air. We've got another storm, Nestor, brewing in the Gulf and rain's a-coming. Batten down, y'all.
Thursday, October 17, 2019
I pretty much checked out today. Just couldn't deal with the rest of the world. All I've done interesting I talked about yesterday and, right now, I don't care to dig into the News. So... yeah.

It is Mose Allison weather today. Rainy and grey, but not too hard nor too threatening. Cool but with no bite. Just the right amount of humidity. Melancholy. Maybe light some off to the west. Play Mose Allison's Backwoods Suite and tell me I'm wrong.

Well, I'm not in the mood for this, but as I'm wired & inspired for one of the last few times for a while, we might as well knock this out.
Toots and The Maytals are the best, man. Undefeated.

The weather's still cool and thunderstorms threaten on the horizon. I'm half tempted to drive down to New Orleans once the rain moves out. Early Fall is the best time to be in New Orleans. The city shines then.

I'm just going to try to get some stuff down. The times are still interesting and the days are still in the Heavy Weird stage with no end in sight.
Tuesday, October 8, 2019
Man, hasn't it been a weird day? In among the never-ending parade of, admittedly, "weird days", this one has been particularly hard on the nerves. Not so much mind-breaking, just petulantly unpleasant.
Monday, October 7, 2019
I've decided to quit using the ampersand. Ticks and quirks are fine, but when the text is copy-and-paste to anything else, it gets screwy. I'm not trying to conserve space, anyway.

I'll probably get a chance to commune with the front yard in a little bit, but let's see what I can get down right now.

The last couple of days have been heavy (for me, anyway) so the Sleep stomped me stupid today. So let's just have a little fun. It's still weird out there, kids, but let's catch our breath.

Ugh, what a day. You know, I might as well just post a link to Google News & let you see for yourself.

Read this New York Times piece if you can get through the paywall. This guy is nuttier than a fox squirrel. I have some choice bits here.
I don't really want to, but I'm going to talk about "cancel culture" again. I thought I cleared this shit up last week. Y'all need to pay closer attention, I've only got so much time a week.
