Bag of Randomness for Monday, August 14, 2018

  • During the children’s church part of the worship service at our church, our pastor asked, “Am I old?”. DaughterGeeding was the first to respond and said, “Well, it depends on what you are comparing yourself to.”
  • I don’t like to travel, but I’d love to travel to an area in the path of the upcoming total eclipse. I also think it would be cool to conceive a child during the eclipse.
  • I’m annoyed when I see outlet and light switch covers with paint on them. It shows whoever painted the room was too lazy to remove them which requires minimal effort. Such is the case with the previous owner of GeedingManor. After all these years, I finally removed the covers and clean the paint off and now have a little more peace of mind.
  • Something from  the subreddit Today I Learned which caught my attention:
  • My kind of humor – “Set your wifi password to 2444666668888888 . . .
    So when someone ask tell them it’s 12345678

    • “One two, three fours, five sixes, seven eights”
  • I don’t even care about the Ezekial Elliot suspension, it’s been a bit liberating trying to separate myself from sports fandom. As I’ve said, I don’t like how it’s blurred my bias and prioritized things in my life. But I’m afraid things may change once the season starts.
  • I’ve posted the picture at the top of this post before. Here’s some background on the 1992 photo if you are interested:
  • Random quote from the book I’m reading:
    • The most precious commodity of the United States of America is leader the gold bullion in Fort Knox Northern launch codes in its ballistic missiles. It is the time of the commander-in-chief colon there is only so much of it, and how its is spent shapes pretty much everything else.
  • After Harry Truman died in 1972, this Purple Heart was found in his desk drawer. Letter worth the read: (Photo/WWR)
    • Nursery Rd
      New Canaan
      Conn.Mr. TrumanAs you have been directly responsible for the loss of our son’s life in Korea, you might just as well keep this emblem on display in your trophy room, as a memory of one of your historic deeds.

      Our major regret at this time is that your daughter was not there to receive the same treatment as our son received in Korea.

  • Another picture of the Oval Office being renovated. They should have contracted with one of the thousand home renovation shows to do this for free.
  • He Can Hit a Golf Ball 445 Yards. Can He Become a Golfer?
  • This would certainly get my attention more than those skinny flappy parking lot blow up attractions.

    Was your random quote a quote of the actual quote…or did your version have a typo? If an actual quote, wow…what does it mean?

    • Geeding says:

      My version has a typo. I dictated it using a text to speech app and thought it recorded it correctly. But the original quote is stating the importance of the time of the president and how it's spent.
