For some reason, Claycord posted everything early tonight….I just happen to check it early….good luck next week!

Never first. Chilly enough here, had to turn the heat on. Brought in the last few tomatoes to ripen in the house. Also put up my Christmas lights while the sun was out earlier. Still a bit more to do inside though.

“For there to be betrayal, there would have to have been trust first.” -Suzzanne Collins

Let’s start with silly:

I can think of 5 uses right off the bat. None useful to mankind however:

Kinda neat:

Expectations indeed:

I know these are probably stale and lame, but they get me every time:

Before you bag on Texas and Texans:

They say the meek shall inherit the earth:

If bugs bug ya, keep movin’:

Few are chosen and fewer know what they’re in for:

Insert “on the lamb” joke here. I’m too lazy:

I have my suspicions too and a very low tolerance for conspiracy theories:

Made me laugh:

Yeah, that’s probably not good:

Every picture tells a story don’t it?:

Almost interesting:

Life hack:

Unless extreme circumstances demand otherwise, never, and I mean never get out of your car:

It’s not poetry, but as far as quotes go, it certainly gets the point across:

From everything I know of her, her heart is even bigger than the chest that contains it:

First off, this woman is a baddass. Second, it’ll get ya where ya feel at the end:

I should admire this, yet somehow as an American I can’t. That’s on me:

“Well…. according to manual, you did that completely wrong”:


Not a good idea, but kinda cool:

Nice job, seriously:

Another nice rescue:

Been there:

There’s always a troublemaker:

Funny animal stuff{adult language}:

Saudi rednecks:

It’s easy to underestimate beings that sniff each other’s butts:

Or not:

New Bond movie trailer. Looks great:

Thanks Atticus.
Welcome back.

Atticus Thraxx December 8, 2019 at 6:49 PM

Glad you guys still enjoy these. How’s things in the big city? Fix those roads yet? 😂
My place sold quick. Used Rex. Met and slightly exceeded my expectations, so take that as a recommendation if you like. My current lease expressly forbids cats so that’s a bummer. It’s a small place in a too quiet neighborhood on the outskirts of a very small, self described “city”. Roads are pretty good, what homeless there are here seem pretty tame. Or well sedated. Sacramento isn’t far and I’m planning a day trip to Cold Canyon near Berryesa soon, maybe over Christmas.
Anyway, be well everyone. And be nice…Santa is watching. And the NSA. And the GRU. And the Chinese and the Israelis, and those absolutely savage Saudis. They’d just as soon slit your throat as put coal in your stocking. Forget that at your peril. 🤭😉🇺🇸

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Atticus.

Antler December 9, 2019 at 2:23 AM

Current community drive is to plant evergreen trees in every pothole! (We’ll close off Denkinger in no time.)

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas up in them thar hills, but please visit Claycord whenever time permits.
(We don’t just love you for the great lists, you know!)

Silva December 9, 2019 at 6:52 PM

It’s always nice to see you Atticus Thraxx! We love it when you can hang out with us, and the collection was superb!! Congratulations on the house.😀 That sounds like paradise. It’s sorta hard to go a long time between kitties, but trust me, it won’t be permanent!😉

Nature Lover December 6, 2019 at 9:03 PM

Thanks Atticus. The kid seeing color for the first time always gets me.

Roz December 7, 2019 at 6:05 PM

Yes Big Thank to Atticus !!
That was a good one,…first time I’ve seen it.

Ancient Mariner December 7, 2019 at 12:39 AM

Nice list, Atticus – thanks!

Antiques December 8, 2019 at 6:27 AM

Does anyone know of any good antique stores in the area? Thanks in advance and Happy Holidays.

Antler December 9, 2019 at 9:36 AM

Henley’s on Clayton Road in Concord! Check online first (might not be open every day of the week).

There is one on East Street, too…. but mostly Asian-types of antiques.
Can’t think of name of it, sorry.

I had a chance to watch both the Niners and Raiders football games today.

I was like watching two different leagues.

The Niners and Saints looked like Pros.

The Raiders and Titans looked like amatures.

Two big surprises regarding my 10 day foray into the Ancestry website, I’ve gone from a lifetime of being one of six survivors of my known (maternal) bloodline, to thousands of people being related to me. And that’s with having only my father’s name, and I’ve hit a wall brick with my paternal grandfather. I just hope none of them come a knocking at my door. I find it interesting that it is as I was told in nebulous terms, but have been curious about; we got here in early colony times, but I’ve finally made it to several ninth and 10th great grandparents England, Ireland, and Scotland, and in several cases to some very fancy country halls. I cannot imagine what possessed them to ever leave. After that you have to pay more money to access documents, and my curiosity has been pretty much satisfied. The other thing that’s a really big eye-opener is that just about every woman along the way since the mid 20th century seems to have about 12 children. No joke. I can’t even imagine. I’ve stopped listing all of the siblings, and am just listing principles, as it’s otherwise endless. Though it has held true that as my mother said her people never were slave owners, I found one household on my paternal grandmother’s side in Virginia with one, and then there’s also the Lee plantation.😯😟😟

The Irish Potato Famine was responsible for some of the immigration to the United States by the Irish.

Silva December 9, 2019 at 5:33 PM

That was a catastrophe.

Gittyup December 9, 2019 at 11:46 PM

It was a catastrophe that prompted immigration to the U.S. and elsewhere.

mtzman December 9, 2019 at 2:11 PM

Interesting! I went from about a hundred or so names acquired back in the 1990s to almost 7,000 names once I jumped back in about a year ago. The online resources have been a total game-changer.

My challenge now is how to disseminate all that information — which is constantly changing with additions and corrections — to my family and anyone else interested. I finally decided on creating a website, which will have whatever raw data I have available in real time, plus short little vignettes of stories that are interesting or help to place everything in historical context.

Silva December 9, 2019 at 6:29 PM

Yes, it’s incredible. I went from a trail leading to the late nineteenth century to medieval times in a week. I have whiplash! That does sound challenging, and sure to be a rewarding thing to do, mtzman. What a great idea!

FPN December 9, 2019 at 7:44 PM

Rode Bart today. So crowded. Men are no longer gentlemen. So many senior women standing while younger men sat. Unbelievable.

Silva December 10, 2019 at 6:55 AM

I think it’s been quite a while since men were gents. Thirty-two years ago almost to the day I was 8.5 month pregnant, and for the first time a gentleman offered and then kindly insisted that I take his seat on the train. Before that nobody anywhere had even offered. I could stand on my own just fine and maybe they all could tell but I did think it noteworthy at the time. On the other hand we like them to be gents but tend to expect it to only go one way. I enjoy holding the door open for men when I get there first. They are always very pleasantly surprised, and it usually seems as if it hasn’t happened to them before. It’s a fun little thing I like to do.😄 Not offering a seat to a person or anyone who’s frail or physically disabled whether they’re male or female, young or old, really bites, and I don’t think It’s just men who should take the rap. Able bodied females should also be offering their seats to people who clearly need them more.
