    March winds

    I grew up in Nebraska where the wind blows so hard that a chicken with its back to the wind has to keep laying the same egg over and over again.

    A lady in our church collects oldspapers for some sorta charity. You can bring them to the Middleham Chapel parish hall office in Calvert County, 10210 H G Trueman Road (about a mile or so north of Cove Point Road). The office manager is there most mornings and she can get them to the lady who...

    Action Exterminator?

    Does anybody know what happened to Action Exterminator? They sent me the post card reminding me it was time for my annual pest treatment, but they no longer have any working phone number and they appear to have gone out of business.

    roof shingles

    Recently had my roof done by Jo Dee Carvalho (phone 240-309-1767). His price was basically in line with everybody else, and the job appears to have been well done.

    RIP Firebrand

    He was my next-door neighbor. Best neighbor anybody could ever have.

    Massive Fire in Solomons

    I certainly hope the vet can get rebuilt or relocated soon. Stocking-cat and Smoky-blew are about due for their next annual appointments.

    So how is covid really affecting your life?

    I think it's kinda cool to be able to go into a place of business wearing a mask and not be suspected of dishonorable intentions.

    Police shoot and kill teenager with air soft gun in St Marys

    This is one case where I would consider the officer to be fully justified.

    Adobe brick lawns in Solomons

    After the sidewalks along the main street here in Solomons got finished, the county apparently hired some contractor to come through and carpet the front-most 8 or 9 feet of everybody's front lawns with some sort of sun-dried adobe brick reinforced with a combination of dead straw and that...

    Fire Ants!

    Yup! We've had fire ants around here since forever. I don't know how to get rid of them (at least any way that my neighbors would find acceptable).

    Crime gang in Baltimore

    Does anybody know anything about these three phone numbers? 410-525-6070 410-525-6053 410-525-6032 As near as I can tell, these three numbers belong to a crime gang in Baltimore. Unless you know something I don't know, I'd suggest you oughta not call them nor answer if they call you. I'm...

    How early is too early to mow your lawn?

    Since I use either a battery-electric or a manual reel mower (depending on what I'm mowing) I can start any time without much noise to bother anybody, but I usually wait until about 10:30 or 11:00 just because the grass is easier to mow after all the dew is dried off of it. And oh by the way...

    Road blocked in Solomons

    In Solomons, Sedwick Avenue between Woodburn Lane and Alexander Lane is blocked due to some fallen wires. Nobody ever goes there anyhow, but hey, why not mention it.

    To the Lesbian couple at Target.

    What's Chicago and black got to do with it? I just think it's rather hilarious that here in modern-day America carrying guns around everywhere appears to be more acceptable than acts of loving kindness.

    To the Lesbian couple at Target.

    I'd rather see them loving each other instead of shooting at each other.
