Out of the Blue

Amid all the hubbub yesterday on Facebook about my negligence in cleaning up after my dog walk was my unspoken amusement that a second poop bag remained unaccounted for after it was all said and done. I knew it was missing, but was too caught up in the first scandal to worry too much about it. Today I discovered it in the driveway of one of the doggies' best friends, Elvis the Woodle, who, in spite of being named after the king, is actually female. In contrast to yesterday's lost bag, which was sitting untouched, this one had been run over at least once, and had burst. The good news is that it was frozen solid, so what looked like a horrible mess came up cleanly without a trace. Meanwhile, I think I need to start a campaign to place more public garbage cans around our village to help stop the scourge of miscreants like myself.

"Scientists". Whew! It's a good thing that the REAL scientists know that carbon dioxide does NOT cause climate change, and never has.

Falcon 9 misses landing.. just barely though. Landed a little off balance and tipped over. It's still hitting a pin sized target at a firing range from 1000 yards. Still blows my mind.

It landed in the ocean. It missed by design though. I watched the launch live stream, and I said to myself that something didn't look right just after the entry burn. Seconds later it began violently rotating. According to SpaceX the hydraulics controlling the fins failed so it couldn't control it's descent. It needs the grid fins to make it to the landing zone, so by design if they fail it will land in the ocean. What I though was most impressive was the gimble on the rocket was able to keep it oriented even though it was spinning and soft land it in the ocean.
It's rolling yo.

Margaret won't have to worry about that nasty teaching job.

She's gonna open a new chain of patriotic barber shops. *sigh*

You're doing it all wrong. You should be setting them on the neighbor's porch and setting them on fire.

I can see the next town hall meeting. They'll be calling for the impeachment of El Presidente for Poopgate 2018. Better put a call into John Dean, Blue.
