Got ‘im

Found the walking stick with the head of Dante that I saw twice last year. Mitchell reckoned if I saw it again, he wouldn’t mind having it.

Same dodgy dude as last year, but maybe not the same stick. He said he had a number of stick heads and he would occasionally jam one on an available stick. He showed me four un-sticked brass dog heads with birds in their mouths. This is his last Dante.

Might be the same, though. I recognized some of his stock from before.

Anyway, it cost me £30 – a fair enough price for a stick ’round these parts – but I’m totally happy to add it to my stick collection if you decide against. Let me know.

Wednesday is my off day and I spent it in the garden watching YouTubes on my phone. My current favs are bodycam footage of really, really drunk people being arrested. The looks on their faces when the cop they’ve been screaming “fucking asshole” at for ten minutes snaps the first cuff on.

Many such channels.

Unfortunately, a goodly proportion of them don’t show drunks – or not merely drunk – but people who are having clear psychotic breaks, or frequent flyers who are permanently ill and in trouble. Sad to watch.

I don’t know what we do with those people, but letting them wander around throwing punches and getting arrested isn’t it.

Oooo! I ‘member that! Yes, I definitely still want it and I’ve been making cedar walking sticks of my own. Let me know what I have to do to get the ball rolling. My email address is in the comment form. I assume you can see that? MANY THANKS!

That’s not Dante.

That’s Clive Owen.

Still, nice stick and all.

Knew a prosecuting attorney up in Gainesville (Tx) who said he always enjoyed watching those videos as the drunk driver, declaring themselves NOT drunk, would step out of the car, and fall flat on their asses/faces (he didn’t care which).

The DUI Karens are unbelievable. I just watched one where an obese Karen refused to step out of the car thinking the LEOs couldn’t do anything because she was wedged in…they yanked her out on to her ass and cuffed her screeching like a Banshee.

Man, people are wound way too tight, especially the old lady and the HOA Karens.

Nice stick! Mitchell is lucky if he gets it.

My favorite streamer is ex-LEO who breaks down true crime and bodycam footage. She was military police before that and learned how to disarm nuclear bombs.
She’s a hoot and a half, and modest despite being quite succcessful. She’s living in a small Texas town.
She’s on two of the big platforms and has clips on TikTok, highlights of her beclowning herself (which she embraces and encourages) and other fun.
If you like I can share more about her.

I’d like to find out. Maybe she’s my neighbor down the road out in the sticks of East Texas.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
