That was quick

My power supply arrived. Yeah, these people are good.

It’s a monster – hand for scale. It says it fits in an ATX case. Let us hope. But did I install it this evening? I did not.

I was busy chasing a little white rooster round and round my neighbor’s driveway. Damn, that little bastard is quick.

I chased him through blackberry brambles. I chased him through stinging nettles. I am alive with small ouchies.

I never caught him, but I did manage to chase him through a hole in the hedge so he could make his way back to the henhouse. It was well past chicken bedtime.

You know the previous post, when I said only one of those chooks in the picture is still alive? It was him – the little white bastard on the right. He was pushing his luck tonight.

He ran through the briars and he ran through the brambles!
He ran through the bushes where a weasel couldn’t go!
He ran so fast the stoats couldn’t catch him,
On down through the hedgehole to the Gulf of Mexico!

Mitch beat me to it!

That tune is an old fiddle tune by the way, “the 8th of January”.

Which is the date of the Battle of New Orleans.

The Daily Mail would pay for that video, so would I.

Did I post this? Way cool.

I hope our fellow Stoatians in Florida are safe…what a mess…16′ storm surge…brutal. We went through Wilma and it wasn’t nearly as strong as Ian. Three weeks no water or power.

@BJM – unless Kudrow is Satan. That could have it’s moments. Uh, I mean “Evil Genius” of course.

Still, imagine what they could do with the obsessions for social media that we didn’t have back in ’81 before Al Gore invented the Internet and cashed in on Gerbil Warning.

The dwarves’ then outlandish outfits will look normal today to the mohawked pink and blue haired body pierced tattoo kids.

But you’re right, the analog “woke poential” meter is going to snap the peg on this one.

The Queen’s certificate of death released: “Old Age.”

Even the British authorities are phoning it in, now. My long-deceased mother’s certificate explicitly states “failure to thrive,” a catch-all that means “just gave up.”

I was totally impressed with how Her Maj made her exit, though… no fuss, no muss, no long drawn-out “Good Bye!” She was active up until hours before her expiration and far more lucid than Lyin’Biden.

Great listing for occupation, too: “Her Majesty The Queen.”
