When I was younger, I'd walk out to the mailbox with no shoes or coat on in two inches of snow...
I had shoes on at least. Shorts and a tshirt was my attire.

Last night was so cold. The windchill took it below 0. The steering wheel was almost painful to touch. Tonight won't be as cold at least.

Merry Christmas to me. I just got a subpoena to appear in court over the fight I witnessed. 😠😡🤬 It's an on call subpoena so I don't have to show unless called. I really hope the 💩head takes a plea deal. Sadly, he's too stupid to do that.

Danny, can I message you a question?

I almost NEVER walk outside shoeless! Maybe by a lake or on the seashore, if I’m swimming.

I spent half my childhood walking around shoeless, even on things like hot pavement and gravel - a couple of times I stepped on broken glass and it didn't even penetrate: I'd feel a little poke, see a shard stuck in the rhinoceros hide on the bottom of my feet, and just pull it out and keep walking.
These days they're not quite as bullet-proof as they used to be, but I still don't have a problem walking around barefoot on most surfaces.

I was the same way, even after stepping on a nail. My neighbor took me to the doctor because my mom was at work. I spent a lot of time barefoot outside growing up. These days I put something on before going out.

Anybody else want to start a petition to get winter to end right after New Year's? I'm done with it.
Short answer; No.

Long answer, I don't get a real winter here. I want snow. We might get a little bit tonight. I'm crossing my fingers. 🤞It'll be gone tomorrow though, which makes me sad.

A guy I work with mentioned putting jelly on a chicken biscuit. I said I never thought of doing that. I asked "Is this a black thing?" He said " Don'know, could be." I asked another black guy and he said he puts grape or strawberry jelly on his.
Is this a black thing?

I don’t know about “black” thing, but sweet/salty combos can be amazing if you find one that fits your palate. A classic PB&J is a great example. So would a Monte Christo. Or sweet relish on hot dogs.

One of my firsts was French fries dipped in a vanilla shake.

Fries with nutella. Absolutely decadent.

The first time I heard of a Monte Cristo was on Midnight Burger. I thought it was something they made up for the show. Sounded surreal.

I'm disappointed more people don't read the newspaper. It often goes more in depth than tv news. It's 100× better edited than blogs. Reading those things makes my brain hurt sometimes. I keep hoping some hipster "discovers" newspapers and makes them popular again.

I like reading the newspaper, and might well still have a subscription for at least the Sunday paper if I had the sort of extra cash to afford non-necessities... Of course, I'm just generally an old-school analog guy at heart.

I have not. It's been a concern of mine that we'll never hear of his worsening health or passing. No clue how he's doing.
