New Year's is a harmless annual institution, of no particular use to anybody save as a scapegoat for promiscuous drunks, and friendly calls and humbug resolutions.
-Mark Twain-

My new years resolution is the same every year and I always keep it. It is "I resolve to make no New Years resolution". -tom swaim-

Old Fools Journal: Odds and Ends

New project: It is to be an open shed to cover generators and bicycles. All the poles are now set but my priorities seem to be a little askew and I keep bouncing from one thing to another.
My helper: Stupid dog but she's pretty and never complains about anything I do.Bike/pedestrian path: This is La316 southbound and this is how we get to the store, library and such. Not much is it. For you bike critics I know that I am on the wrong side of the road but the other side is lose gravel almost impossible to even walk in. Just past the bank about a 100 feet it becomes more like this and I cross over. "Why not just take the lane?" you say, it's legal. Sure it is but you do not know the murderous nature of the natives here. They know that if they hit a bicycle here that it will be deemed an accident and their conscience will be clear. I am convince that most peoples lives are so boring and dull or so filled with stress that they are willing to kill just to add some spice to their lives. Not all are like that but I never go down this road that I don't see an example. Yesterday, for example, while approaching an intersection a fat man in a fat SUV pulled up to the stop sign and waited until I was about to pass then quickly pulled out in front of me. Little did he know that I knew him for the asshole that he is and was ready. Not all are like that but being unable to tell I just treat them all the same. With caution.
Notice the in the two photos above how much room the vehicles are giving me. That is only because I was holding a camera. Without the camera most are within inches of that white line. I spent about 20 minutes testing that theory.The Princess has a new mailbox at the foot of the stairs to the tree house.The Bus: Need a clean up from winters dirt and some paint. There will be a post about this sometime in the future.Water front property: A little paint and duct tape and the yacht will be ready to launch. The Parish(county in the rest of the world) just cleaned the drainage ditch behind the house. Picture is taken from the tree house. It is navigable and connects to the Gulf of Mexico by way of other canals and bayous. When it is not full from rain runoff it rises and falls with the tide.Under the bird feeder: This is not a good place to set your wine glass.

I do not like the hoop (name,password) that blogger accounts have to jump through but I can not do anything about it.
