I worked with a man who lost a leg to cancer. When asked if he ever gets discounts on shoes, he said sometimes he gets lucky when a store has mismatched or irregular pairs. But for the most part, he has to buy a pair of shoes at sale price and will one use one of them.
One time he asked if I could come over to his house to help him move a recliner upstairs. To my surprise, he helped me move it and hopped and balanced on his one leg as we carried it up stairs.

Mary Tyler Moore died, and while I had nothing against her, I wasn’t really a fan. When I heard about her death, I could only recall one thing I’ve ever seen her in, an episode of the Tea Leoni comedy ‘The Naked Truth’. I then scrolled own her IMDB page and realized I’ve heard a lot of stuff she’s been in, but have never watched any of them, even her more popular stuff like ‘Rhoda’, ‘Mary Tyler Moore’, and Ordinary People.
Her death was the lead story on the ‘CBS Evening News’. They end each newscast with a look at a city skyline, they chose Minneapolis last night. I know enough that was the setting of her show.
In this clip (towards the end), David Letterman and Michael Keaton talk about how Mary Tyler Moore helped give them a start in their careers. Of all things, they were backup singers and dancers.
Our neighbors from Mexico invited our family to their casa for their six-year-old daughter’s birthday party. I’ve been to kids birthday parties with a pinata before, but this was the first I’ve been to in which everyone (sans Geedings) were of Mexican heritage. Usually, when the pinata pops and the candy falls, I’m used to seeing the kids, after a small bit of persuasion, hurry to the candy with just a little bit of fanfare. But since the pinata was part of all the kids’ culture at this party, it wasn’t their first rodeo. I kid you not, it was like watching the news on Black Friday with adults running over each other as soon as store doors open, except it was children. It was quite the site.
One of my virtual reality apps on my phone notified me of an NBA game I could watch live, which I thought was pretty cool. I didn’t have time to watch the game but did access the app to watch highlights of different NBA games and it was better than expected. You watch as if you are a ticket holder from under the goal, and then later it will switch you to court side seats as if you are Jack Nicholson or Spike Lee at a Lakers or Knicks game.
I noticed DaughterGeeding was taking longer than usual to finish her homework. It turns out she was finished, but she said she wanted to write a new Star Wars script.
“But. I am, I am Princess Leia. I have hidden myself among the Earth people. Wanting to battle and tell you Luke, ah, I heard something.”
As of November 1, 2016, the State of Texas will no longer automatically replace your plates after 7 years. However, you may still apply at your county tax office for replacement plates if the license plate needs to be replaced for cosmetic or readability reasons.
House prices on Zillow always seem inflated.
If you are the sensitive type or easily offended, then don’t click on Today’s dose of ‘MURICA!. But I will tell you that it’s just a GIF of two men shooting weapons.
I had a concussion a week before Thanksgiving and had to wear special glasses to look at a computer monitor so it wouldn’t cause any pain. The light was killing me. Just this week I no longer need to wear the glasses, things are basically back to normal.
I never thought this would catch on – 3D TV is dead – The last two TV-makers to build 3D functionality into their sets, LG and Sony, will not build any new sets this year that can show 3D movies and TV shows, CNET reports.
