Bag of Randomness for Wednesday, December 19, 2018

  • I was in East Texas last weekend to celebrate Christmas with WifeGeeding’s family and her father’s 80th birthday. He took the grandkids to ride a miniature train in Mineola.
  • I’ve never watched an episode of ‘Laverne & Shirley’. I’d watch the intro to the show and then turn the channel to something else.
  • One of WifeGeeding’s coworkers lost her husband to cancer this week. He was a father to three daughters, two are in college and one is still in high school. WifeGeeding gave me her mean one-eyed stare when I suggested we introduce her to our neighbor who just lost his wife to cancer.
  • If Mexico would simply go ahead and pay for the border wall like they are supposed to there wouldn’t be any U.S. government shutdown. 
  • Before he died, an elderly man left his 2-year-old neighbor Christmas presents for the next 14 years
  • About two weeks ago when driving the kids to school a projectile hit the windshield with such force shards of glass hit my face and fell into my coffee. No one was hurt, though it scared the kids. I was proud of myself for remaining calm and using it as a teaching moment on how not to panic. 
  • “A sitting National Security Advisor, former head of an intelligence agency, retired Lieutenant General, and 33 year veteran of the armed forces knows he should not lie to federal agents.”
  • Infograph – Prominent Serial Killers by State

    Today’s picture makes me really proud for Faye. I know a lot of people have similar stories, but it’s pretty cool that she can trace her journey through name tags.

    I’m pretty sure at the end of the Christmas truck video, he says “Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals,” so it’s perfectly SFW.

    Strange, I was just reading about Dean Arnold Corll last night when there was an episode of a show on about him. I grew up in Pasadena where many of his murders took place. I was 8ish when he died so was not fully aware of his crimes at the time, but had heard a little about him here and there.

    He was called the ‘Candy Man’, but there was another killer from Pasadena called ‘Candyman’ by the media. He is the guy that poisoned his kid’s halloween candy, thus making everyone paranoid about halloween (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ronald_Clark_O%27Bryan#Death_of_Timothy_O’Bryan). Same time, same city, similar moniker granted by the media.
