Rural King.
It was a big night out with the little woman last night as we made a trip to Rural King to get dog food for the poop machines.
I always find Rural King to be an amazing place with all the stuff they have.  Where else can you get a walk behind garden seeder, heck everybody needs one of those.  Are you into camo?  They got it all , I meant to check to see if they have a camouflaged toliet seat, I bet they do.  They have deer corn, although I didn't see any deer buying any.  They have every kind of bird feeder you could want.  They even have squirrel feeders, I am not sure why anyone wants to feed a rat with a bushy tail but some folks do.  They have horse wormer which sounds pretty scary to me.  They carry every kind of tool known to mankind which i find interesting even though I have no idea what to do with them.  Sometimes they have baby chickens and  baby rabbits.  You can't beat a store with its own petting zoo. 
I don't know what the big attraction of Rural King is to me, I don't hunt, don't fish, don't farm, don't garden and my wife will tell you I don't know how to fix anything, but the place still fascinates me.
Maybe its the free popcorn.

I remember when-itis.
As I continue to approach my golden years (whatever those are) I notice one sign of aging is becoming more and more obvious.  I am not talking about thinning hair, aching joints or having to get up in the middle of the night to pee but something I  call "I remember when-itis".  It seems alot  of my conversations these days begin with "Iremember when.."  you know like I remember when gas was 29 cents a gallon, I remember when the Beatles were a new group, I remember when the milkman delivered the milk to your door,  I remember when my first car cost a whole $100,  I remember when there were two major league baseball all star games each summer, I remember when they had the first earth day.  You get the idea I can go on for hours.
Usually the people who get to hear my 'I remember when-itis" the most are my now adult daughters who  just roll their eyes when I start and politely wai till I'm done..  I have even started  the  I remember whens on my grandaugters.  Their respones is usually "Grandpa be quiet Dora is on TV right now."
Everybody has a little "i remember when-itis" in them but I don't think it really kicks into high gear until  about the time you're 55 or over.
So please be patient when I begin to wax  nostalgic, in another couple of years I won't be able to remember anything any more.
By the way I remember when Al Gore discovered the internet.

One of the highlights of my weekend was mowing my yard, which means two hours or so on the riding lawn mower.  I am always struck my some great thoughts and observations while mowing.  Today I am about to share some of these great  thoughts   from Saturday's mowing.  Hold on here we go....
I wish I was rich so I could pay someone to cut my lawn for me.
Does John Deere make a riding lawn mower with a 20 foot cut?
i am impressed how quickly law entorcement people took care of those S.O.B.'s  in the Boston Marathon bombings.
Maybe it's time to take down the Christmas lights,.
Is there really any grass in this yard?  It looks like all weeds to me.
I will save the weed eating till after I mow.  Who I am kidding I'm not doing it.
My dogs sure do poop alot.
Why did my daughter decide to have her wedding next year on the first weekend of the NCAA basketball tournament.  It had to be my wife's idea.
Is their funnier show on TV than Duck Dynasty?
I hope my wife doesn't get mad but I ate the last donut left this morning.
Was broadcasting really a good career choice?
It's official my dogs are the league leaders in poop.
Maybe after four years I should change the blades on this mower.
FINALLY  done, I wonder how much  a herd of goats cost?

Note to neighbors, I was not drunk while I was mowing Saturday I was just trying  to jot down all these great thoughts.
