Bag of Randomness for Thursday, March 21, 2019

  • I wonder how awkward dinner is at the George and Kellyanne Conway house.
  • The high school in my hometown of Mineral Wells is getting a new principal, his name is Dr. Funk. I bet he’s heard every joke possible when it comes to his name. I had a friend in college with the last name of Massingill, he was a pretty cool dude.
  • DaughterGeeding read Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets in less than 20 hours.
  • A lot of times when I look at a lifetime of photos of someone, there’s a phase, perhaps in their thirties, in which they look older than they do when they are in their forties.
  • Smithonian.com – The Rivalry Between Two Doctors to Implant the First Artificial HeartFeaturing titans of Texas medicine, the race was on to develop the cutting-edge technology
  • I find the selection of a photo for an obituary or celebration of life a funeral interesting. Out of a lifetime of photos, a family member will have to choose a single one. Some will choose a photo taken at the latter stage of life, perhaps because it’s most recent and it’s how most people think of their loved one. Yet, sometimes they will choose a photo at a time in that person’s life when they were most active or well dressed. All that came to mind looking at the obituaries in my hometown newspaper, in particular, military photos of loved ones taken in the sixties or seventies.

    20 hours – that’s amazing! She must have really loved it! I listened to all the Harry Potter books on CD. So I didn’t know how to spell Hermione, but I could pronounce it. đŸ™‚

    I didn’t know his middle name was McFeely. Mr. Rogers was a wonderful man!

    My mother has threatened to haunt my brother and I from beyond if we use a bad photo of her for her obit or funeral related activities.

    There was a time when I could plow through a book in a few days and I hate that I’ve allowed myself to get distracted for doing so by TV, streaming, online entertainment, etc.
