Fauna Cluelessness

Curmudgeon Compound has an impressive TV antenna which came with the place.  I never hooked it up because fuck television! I’m lazy. The past few mornings a woodpecker has been earnestly hammering away at the tall metal support pole.  I’ve … Continue reading

He trashed a nation in less time than most of us take to wear out a Honda Civic. It was a safe prediction. Who didn’t see it coming? Continue reading

Nothing Good Can Come Of SB1813
