Notes from the homefront

Originally published June 3, 2004

Katie, the Fertile Rottweiler, is down to two puppies now. Somebody took "Brownie," an alpha male, and the two leftovers are brown females. All the ones who looked like genuine Rotties went pretty quickly.

Henry got kicked out of his house by the darling wife, came over to the Crackerbox in search of beer, told me his sob story, but charmed his way back in one day later. That guy makes ME feel sane.

I haven't seen THE JOGGER for a while now. Maybe the running bastard dropped dead of a heart attack the way Jim Fixx did on his way to perfect health.

The FAT LADY might not be singing, but she's walking several times up and down the road every day. She does that ridiculous power-walking thing that makes me want to run over her with my truck. Maybe she ate THE JOGGER. (Side note: never trust a woman with a belly bigger than her tits.)

A grackle attacked me in my back yard today, then had the nerve to hang around and squawk at me. I shot his ass dead with my pellet rifle.

I don't trust one of my neighbors. He has three things going against him. His ass is wider than his shoulders, he smokes brown cigarettes and he has an electric lawn mower.

I have an Effingham County sheriff's deputy living on my street. He knows me by name. I'm not certain whether that's a good thing or a bad thing.

I ate lunch at Weisenbacker's Restaurant today after my visit to the dentist. I must be going there too often. As soon as I sat down, the waitress came to me and said "The Killian's Red is on tap again, Rob." That tap has been broken for a couple of weeks, and that's what I always ask for. I had a Killian's, with a meal of BBQ ribs, mashed potatoes, fried okra and corn and tomatoes. It was good and I tipped my waitress generously.

I cut my grass. And I didn't use an electric lawn mower.

As you can tell, it doesn't take much to excite me anymore. That's one of the reasons I love living in Effingham County, Georgia.


To whoever updates this; thank you. I never had the privilage of reading Acidmans writing while he was alive, and a lot of the links he has are no longer updated or dead altogether. It's almost like I found an old civilization that's not around anymore. Oh, well. Doors opn and doors close as they say but I sure wish I'd found this in 2003 or '04. RIP Acidman. You've got lots of fans that didn't discover you until after you were gone.

Thanks, Scott.

Knowing that new people like you are around and that some old fans are still reading strengthens my resolve not to drop the ball again like I did last year.

My life as I knew it kinda blew up on me last summer and, though I'm still not completely settled from it all yet, this is one area where I want to go back to the way it was before... with me updating continually.

I promised Rob I would and I'm going to.
No matter what, from now on.

And, you're right... Rob was an incredible man.
Flawed, to be sure, but an awesome guy all the same.

I'm honored to be able to do this for him and glad as hell that he's still attracting new fans/readers.
And, I'm certain he's lovin' it, too...

Usually, some teachers want to testify the business term paper creative writing ability of their students, however not all students can to write professionally just because of a job or other stuff. Therefore, a essay writing service is able aid to write the free term papers very fast.

Glad to see you're still keeping the flame. Gutrumbles was blog that I would find en route to looking up something else, or click through to from someone else's blogroll. I always meant to be a regular reader, but never made the time. So, I'm glad to see the archives are still up, so I can dip in from time to time.
