Finally Friday

This week's work grind is finally over. Not complaining, but it sure feels good to relax with nothing much planned for the weekend. Supposed to rain tomorrow anyway. I'll probably head for the flea marked before everyone gets up (unless it's raining).

So why am I writing this drollish drool and wasting your time? Good question, for which I don't have a ready answer (remember the inanity of the moment). But you're still reading. You're wondering, "Where's he going with this drivel?"

Okay, I thought of something:


1. Don't grab the muffler on your lawn mower when you're trying to find the carburetor. Your fingers will start sizzling before you realize your predicament. It will hurt more than anything you've ever experienced. It will make you feel like an idiot. It will remove your fingerprints. Your fingers will look like raw meat.

2. Keep your mouth shut as much as possible when you're asked to share your thoughts in a peer group of mostly strangers. You're not as smart as you used to be.

  1. It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.-- Mark Twain (1835-1910)
    Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding. -- Bible, 'Proverbs' 17:28.
