Wacky Whoa’s and Casuals

Cowboys fighting. 1919 Universal film Cyclone Smith. (USPD., artist life/

Everything old is new again. (Or humans really do have the memory span of a gnat…although that’s probably disparaging gnats.) Baltimore’s mayor wants conflicts duked out in the ring, and Texas legalizes brass knuckles. As long as they also revive the forgotten concepts of never kicking someone when they are down and only pick on someone your own size. (USPD/

As “Twilight Zone” would say, “For your consideration..”

  • Two things you want: A Men in Black neuralyzer and whatever Dexter had in that syringe of his. (Whatever that was -pow – hit them with that and they went down – not dead, but not yapping’ or causin’ trouble either.)
  • Horses by nature are suspicious: “Whoa. That tumbleweed wasn’t there yesterday”. No debate possible. Unable to clear weird notion. Just move on. “Whoa. That stick doesn’t look familiar” Ditto. “Whoa, a leaf. Who knows…” Ditto. At some point communication skills are completely pointless. They are what they are. Work around it.
  • Legal terms update needed. “I have a casual marriage and he’s done gone and wants the car and I want to keep it. I have a certificate. No, we did not get a marriage license; we signed a certificate.” (As told to one of those tv legal help experts) 1. First, “casual marriage”? (Is that a contradiction in terms? But moving on.) 2. In this state that may constitute a Common-law marriage (Hold over from pioneer days when church ministers were few and far between) if certain conditions are met and you may need an actual divorce. 3. Here’s the local legal aid phone number. 4. “I don’t know if the certificate makes any difference whether you get the car.”
  • No Spelling Bee trophy for this big city Police Chief. Recent tweet sniping at judges who let criminals out on bond and who then go on to commit additional crimes, like murder. “…letting dangerous people back out on the street to pray upon innocent citizens…” Yeah, we all know religious activities in public can cause incidents.

That’s it, folks

Have a great weekend

    So, some three or four decades ago, I was out riding my horse, minding my own business when *whoomph* he vanished from underneath me, and instantly reappeared ten feet to the right – ten feet from that groundhog that wasn’t there the day before. Miraculously, I managed to stay seated. I’d say twilight zone best describes my response.

      That is a “whew” feeling that has to be experienced. Can be dangerous which is why we worry a bit about some who insist on living in isolation. Fortunately cell service is improving…and once thrown and banged up, caution seems to appear…for a month or two anyway HaHa.
      Still, with those wide starry skies and no city lights to dim them, there is reason to want to stay.
      Thanks for riding along

        starry skies makes me want to clap three times quickly and sing, “Deep in the heart, of Texas…”
