Adults Vs Children

I walked to a bar to do some data entry for work while drinking (my boss knows and supports me lol). 



On my way inside, there were a few adults arguing with a few children. 

The adults were at the bar, outside, smoking in the smoking section. This section is surrounded by a fence. 

On the other side, sitting on a curb, were some kids hanging out and smoking cigarettes. The youngest looked about 8 or 9 and the oldest looked 12 or 13. 

The adults started harassing the kids and the conversation went something like this — 

Adults: What are you doing!? You’re too young to smoke!

Kids: So.

Adults: Don’t you know how bad it is for you!?

8-yr old: (after lighting a cig, obviously experienced) You’re smoking? Soooo.

Adults: But WE. are. adults!

Kids: So.

Adults: We’re old enough.

Kids: So. 

Adults: Well you shouldn’t be smoking.

Kids: Well at least we aren’t losers hanging out in a bar on a Monday.

One adult: I’m with my friends! 

One kid: ...your loser friends.

Second adult: We’re not losers!!

Same kid: You guys suck

The other kids: So.

Second adult: You shouldn’t be smoking. 

Street person: LEAVE THE KIDS ALONE! 

Adults: ask trivia guy to repeat the last three questions because they were “dealing with a thing.”




Seems like the kids just needed an advocate.

I wish Instagram would up their filter game

....they give us like, one new filter a month. 



I used an Easter Bunny filter on 31 May 2018 for crying out loud.

What is up?

I keep thinking about writing an actual blog post, but then I don’t make time for it. Instead of writing, I’m going to post some photos. 


Getting this mosaic ready for its new home.


Shaved Nico for my first time. I’ve had her for 15 years.


My plot at Skinner City Farm is in order.


Peonies smell amazing then suddenly explode.


California poppy.


Sampling produce at work! I still don’t like cantaloupe but galias are growing on me, so maybe someday I’ll learn to like them! 


Best photoshop job I’ve ever done!

40 is the new late-onset puberty

Yep. I was born in 1978.



In 1977, my mom ordered me from The Internet, like so:



Although I’m all good with my age, sometimes I see photos of myself and am surprised at what I look like.



Thanks obamak52.

Trying this new blogging app

.....so far, so good! Thanks for the suggestion, Joe! Hopefully this app (BlogTouchPro) will help me get back into the swing of blogging. 

For now, look at my new bike! I never thought I’d find love again, but here I am in love with a Breezer Uptown EX. 🤪



I took it on its maiden voyage to do a bit of weeding at my community garden plot and made it home just before the rain. The photo below isn’t my plot, just showing how lush and green it is in Eugene.

tap, tap, tap...is this thing on?

Hi all!

I'm still alive. I never post anymore because Blogger doesn't have an app to post from my phone. Does anyone know if there is an iphone app for Blogger?
