"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed." — Dwight D. Eisenhower — who knew that this would eventually apply not just to national defense but to city budgets?
So there being way more important things going on in the world, I haven't shared the bizarro dude interactions of the weekend. Suffice it to say, people are acting crazy across the board. At this point I just have to laugh and embrace the awkward.
I went to friends in laws for a simple giveaway pickup. I thought it was for spring cleaning. When I am leaving i ask what they are doing for the day. Putting in flooring in in laws. Then I find out he hurt his back that morning and is loopy on vicodin and their house is being auctioned in two weeks so they're trying to make in laws habitable.
Had a custom pony to do today and I was worried about the color. Golden retriever red is just not a glass color. So I chose what I thought was closest and worked it as cool as I dared (reds get darker the longer they are in the fire) and BOOM, nailed it!
My siblings and I earned our first DVD player (edit: actually VCR player) by digging dandelions out of our yard, five cents per root that measured an inch or longer. That remains one of my prouder accomplishments. #saturdayFF
