Bag of Randomness for Wednesday, May 30, 2018

  • It was time for us to throw away an old recliner, it was tattered and stained and no one in their right mind would accept it even if given to them. Instead of taking it to the dump or arranging disposal, I thought it would be fun to disassemble it with the kids and fit it in our city provided trash receptacle. It was fun cutting the fabric and tearing it away, doing something you aren’t supposed to do. When it came to the wooden frame, I thought it would be a nice time to introduce the kids to their grandfather’s handsaw and teach them proper woodcutting. My seventh-grade woodshop teacher, Homer Hensley, would have been proud.
  • Does anyone have any opinions on having a ceiling fan in the master bath?
  • I didn’t realize it until watching Netflix’s ‘The Crown’, but King¬†George VI’s funeral had three British queens in attendance. His mother, Queen Mary The Queen,¬†his wife/widow, Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, and his eldest daughter, Queen Elizabeth II.
  • And little did I know that Queen Elizabeth’s husband, Prince Phillip, was born in Greece.
  • I’m always thrown when watching a film or television series which takes place in England and the characters reference the use of miles or inches. My ignorance makes me feel like they should only use metric terms like kilometers and centimeters.
  • I bet the majority of people who make fun of accents only speak one language.
  • The First Lady hasn’t been seen in public for twenty days. Usually, people of her stature makes at least a very brief public appearance just waving to the crowd. I’m not criticizing her, it’s just a concerned observation.
  • I’m looking forward to the series finale of ‘The American’s’ tonight, it’s been a great ride.
  • Pompeii news
    • A man managed to escape the first eruptive fury of Vesuvius in A.D. 79, only to be crushed beneath a block of stone hurled by an explosive volcanic cloud, new excavations at the site suggest. Archeologists working at the ancient Roman city of Pompeii, Italy, found the man’s remains almost 2,000 years after he died.

  • Homeless Jesus statue stops runaway truck in Canada
  • I’m impressed.

    the skeleton/block of stone photo looks like somebody doing a comedy bit.

    Bouquet catch: could you forward this to Jerry Jones?

    Roasting marshmallows over a volcano: what’s their position on weenies?
    It can be done, but the problem is finding a rea-a-ally long stick!

    Opening soon – North Korea’s Kim Jong Un-n-Out

    the bouquet catch is from a commercial a few years back, made to look like the Odell Beckham catch he made against the Cowboys.

    Keith, we have built two houses and had ceiling fans installed in the Master Bath’s of each one. They are very nice; after you shower and are getting ready the bathroom is very steamy. For Mr. Honcho, this isn’t a huge issue, but for Mrs. Honcho it is a big problem… make doing the hair and makeup a pain.

    With the ceiling fan, just open a door after a shower, turn on the fan, Voila! It’s also nice because we squeegee the glass walls and doors of the shower to keep it clean. If you do that and turn the fan on then the shower stays very nice and clean. Also, it’s nice after a shower to dry off under the fan and “cool” down in the warmer months. Lastly, we are a “use-the-bath-towels-more-than-once” family in my house. When you hang them up on the towel bar and the fan is on they dry very nicely and never mildew.

    Hope this helps!

    I have a fan in my master bath, it’s a “modular” home and came with it. Nice to have though. And btw, I remember you saying long ago that you check your locks on each door at night. I do the same. Single mom here and that may have something to do with it, but I think it’s something my dad did as well.

  5. Bryan B says:

    First lady hasn’t been seen for 20 days and Liberally Lean has been MIA for 16. Coincidence? I think not.

  6. Dude says:

    I was skeptical when the wife suggested a ceiling fan in the master bath a few years back when we remodeled. I am a huge FAN of it now for all the reasons listed above. Never use it in the winter but, man, is it handy right about now.

  7. Baryshbachev says:

    I have thoroughly enjoyed The Americans as well. It never lost a step from Episode 1 throughout the series. We’ll see how the Finale holds up!

  8. Susan says:

    Geeding, it is The Americans, not The American’s.
