- Those blocks in the image above were my favorite classroom toy in kindergarten. I always tried to build the “G-Force” plane with them. I’m sure only a handful of you remember G-Force or ‘Battle of the Planets’, but you can stream them all for free here. And if I recall correctly, the back of that plane had a mini-jet that could detach.
I’m thinking Voltron wasn’t a lot different than G-Force. Both had five main characters. Each had a kid. Each had a woman. Each had a fat guy.
- The retired NFL lineman hasn’t been seen since he put a “For Sale” sign in his yard about a month ago, so I thought he already moved back to Wisconsin. Before the sign was in his yard, I spotted him loading up a horse trailer full of his and his wife’s belongings. I recently noticed the house is in a “pending sale” status and was expecting to see the new neighbors. However, on Friday, he was back, shirtless, with his horse trailer loading up more furniture and belongings. On one hand, I’m thinking he’s a multi-millionaire and can easily pay someone to move everything for him. But on the other hand, he’s retired and has “nothing to do” and he’s the down-to-earth guy that enjoys doing things himself.
- We ate breakfast at Denny’s on Father’s Day. I noticed a woman, probably mid-seventies, order a chocolate milkshake at 8:15 AM. After the milkshake, she had eggs and bacon. She wasn’t obese or anything and looked like she was in good health.
- The kids also made me “U2” cookies for Father’s Day. And, much to WifeGeeding’s chagrin, I shaved the mustache part of my beard off, embracing my half-Asian-Amish roots.
- I’m not implying anything personal, but I’m curious to know the percentage of in-law-children who acknowledge their mother or father-in-law on Mother’s and Father’s Day. You know, like a card, a phone call, or even a text saying “Happy Mother’s/Father’s Day”. I’m also curious the percentage of mothers or fathers-in-law who acknowledge their sons or daughters-in-law on those stated days.
- Before marriage, I think everyone should live alone for at least one year. Solitude has many benefits, and you get to know how clean or messy you are and can’t blame anyone but yourself. You also learn independence and your true likes and dislikes.
- We visited Nebraska Furniture Mart yesterday and they had a mini-donut stand in the parking lot. Let me clarify, the stand wasn’t mini, the donuts were mini. Also, a friend of mine who is obsessed with all things Disney spotted a hidden Mickey at the bottom of the stand.
- Ted Nugent states he will be more civil and avoiding hateful speech, avoiding such things as telling Obama to ‘suck on my machine gun.’ I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt, and if I were an advisor for the former president, I’d invite him over for a beer and provide a photo-op both can share on social media.

- History is never as you remember it. I’m learning that lesson, yet again, as I watch the ESPN ’30 for ‘ on the Lakers and Celtics. That also means you may be too hard, or too soft, on yourself, for mistakes of the past you dwell on. Which leads me to something I read on Twitter recently – if you are depressed, you are focusing too much on the past, if you are anxious, you are focusing too much on the future.
