I'm really getting tired of yardwork and home repairs.



Getting a lot done though I suppose.

When I was a kid I used to have jars full of marbles. Most of them were hand me downs from earlier generations. I remember my dad showing me how he used to play marbles when he was a kid.

Needless to say, I lost my marbles a long  time ago. 

Cap nice job, the yard looks spiffy, but the bush on the right needs a little trimming.

stay healthy folks

Re: Marbles. Oddly, your hatred of The has caused you to lose yours.

Thanks Rich. Took your advice and cut the darned thing down. Looks bare there now though.

Some prefer the no-bush look, others letting it grow wild and naturally.

I'm partial to a well-trimmed bush.

As an aside I remember cutting down some mature bushes only for them to sprout again so I had to do some serious digging to get to the roots. That worked. 

Happy gardening cap and stay healthy.  :)

I've given the stump a stern glare. If that doesn't work maybe I can have Skippy talk to it. That might make it disappear.

We have to wait until 2027. Satan will likely be gone by then, but this will likely still be epic.

The interesting thing is getting the home/home series. Bama prefers neutral sites.

https://www.bostonglobe.com/2020/06/18/sports/university-florida-ends-popular-gator-bait-cheer-citing-racist-origins

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — The University of Florida is ending its “gator bait” cheer at football games and other sports events because of its racial connotations, the school’s president announced Thursday in a letter making several other similar changes on campus.

Florida president Kent Fuchs said in a letter to the university’s faculty, students and staff that the cheer has a “horrific historic racist imagery” involving Black people, especially children, being used as bait for alligators.

“Accordingly, university athletics and the Gator Band will discontinue the use of the cheer," Fuchs wrote.


This reminds me of Hunter Thompson's openings in  one of his Fear and Loathing essays-books.

Maybe Florida State can lend the Gators the tomahawk chop.

The Big However Many cancels its OOC schedule. I'm guessing the whole season, for everyone, follows anon.

I'm patiently waiting for the SEC'S announcements that they're doubling the amount of games their teams play and are adding an extra deck to each of its team's stadiums.

Ivy League cancels all fall sports.

Usually I'd say something like, will anyone notice. But in this instance is it the first of many?
