Blowen a little steam

Recently, I have heard Mamacita speak out about "stupid" people in restaurants, and fast food drive thrus, and in grocery store check out lines.

Not sure if they are peet peeves or not, I do know she has some cats, but I don't know about any other pets.

Alas, I digress, Mamacita does that too, did you know that?

Anyway, I thought I would take a moment and rant a little bit about a pet peeve I have, that has really come to the forefront since I have been driving school bus.

I am a firm believer, that if gummint ever instituted a "stupidity" test for anything, there would be a lot less licensed drivers on the road, and maybe, nah, better not go there...

There was a time in my adult life, that i believed that if stupidity cost money, there would be a lot less stupid people around: I don't believe that anymore...

Rush Limbaugh sez the most expensive commodity we have in this country is ignorance; I echo that with the caveat, that stupidity is just as costly.

I guess a lot of stupidity is a direct offshoot of ignorance... I just can't believe there is that much inbreeding going on in this country.

So, there!

Don't think Mamacita gets to have all the fun all the time...

Dear John Letter Advice from a Marine Wife

Pretty astute post over at Villainous company...

The first part may not be the best safe for work language, but when you get to her actual response there is much to touch your heart.

Having been a Marine, in Vietnam while married, and having been married and divorced a number of times, her thoughts definitely resonate with me.

good insight

Senitmental ole you

I received an email from my high school alumnus coordinator (?) with a link to a slide presentation, with music entitled:
remembering the 60s.

If you remember, may be a little reminiscent for you, if you don't, may be interesting for you...

I personally spent the first two and a half years in hi skool, and the rest of the decade was in the Marine Corps with a year in Vietnam.
