Out of the Blue

Walking the doggies this week reminds me how much I hate standard time. Heading out at 5:00 pm before the clocks changed was already bad enough, as it was pretty much sundown by the time we got back. With daylight saving time concluded, it was dusk when we headed out at 5:00 on Monday, and pitch black by the time we returned. Yesterday I got out earlier, but it was still completely dark by the time we got home. We don't have many streetlights around here, so this is a problem. For now I'm carrying a flashlight to find camouflaged poop, but Jedi's mom has ordered LED collars for Jedi and the Gunnar-man to help make them more visible at night. The cool thing about the collars is that one setting flashes the lights, so we'll not only be more visible out there, but when boredom strikes we can disco. Now it's time to add the soundtrack from Saturday Night Fever, or at least A Night at the Roxbury.

Hey Blue,
I don't stop by too often anymore but wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday since I know it's coming up. (I'm the 21st too, which is the only way I remember...) Hope you, Mrs. Blue and the pups have an awesome day.

Cheers!

LOL @ that hockey coach.

“I want to see you sticking your hands up these guys ass and workin’ them like a fuck puppet,” the coach screamed.

Everything I would expect from a hockey coach, honestly.

The woman, who had been drinking,

Yeah, I think it's past time that airlines cut the booze entirely. If you can't survive a few hours without having a drink you've got serious issues.

The thing is, then you'll have people sneaking booze onto planes to drink, which makes it much more difficult to control, and turns the flight attendants into law enforcement.

Maybe, but there are already restrictions on what kind and how much alcohol you can carry on a plane. Considering the amount of rummaging the TSA already does, I don't think an alcohol ban would be hard to enforce. The real problem is after security check most airports have plenty of places to get wasted prior to getting on the plane. My guess is there's too much money involved for them to make airports 'dry' areas.
That's true. If you forced all alcohol into checked luggage, then had TSA prohibit it in carry-on, that would work.

As someone pointed out though, that's a big revenue stream.

Yes, but you're not allowed to board a plane while intoxicated already and if the penalty is stiff enough for smuggling booze on board than people won't do it. It's no different with all my years as a bartender, when people came in either corked or half-in-the-bag they wouldn't get served. In Ontario the bartender/server/manager/resto are all legally responsible for over-serving people booze. They can and do get arrested, sued, business shut down/lose its license all the time by the AGCO. It's a serious business here. Personally it's always bothered the hell out of me because it absolves the drinker of any personal responsibility and I don't see why I need to be their babysitter. If you can get drunk, handle your shit and not be a problem than all power to you. And most people can, these laws always and only exist because a handful of assholes can't handle their shit. It's the same with drugs, gambling, etc.
