Stuck at the airport open thread

My flight out of Denver was supposed to leave almost an hour ago. I actually made it onto the plane, and I almost made it all the way to my seat before we were all told to disembark because of mechanical difficulties. Now it sounds like I won’t be boarding my new plane (which is already here) for another hour and a…

Celebration of life Celebration of life

Yesterday was Momlock’s funeral. It went great. Lots of laughter, plenty of stories, some tears, etc. We had the family back to the house for food and games afterwards, and it was great. Mom would have been happy with it.

She has passed (update) She has passed (update)

Dad was there holding her hand when she took her last breath. My brother and I were pulling into the parking lot.

It is what it is

They made the call. All life saving processes have been stopped, and they are only doing pain management. She will be transferred via ambulance to hospice care within 48 hours. She has maybe a week, probably less. I am sitting with her in the hospital while my dad is getting lunch. My brother arrives tomorrow.

Saturday Night Antisocial

I have had a week. I am now playing Angry Birds 2, sipping whiskey, and playing with my dog. Bralock is out of town, and I had cereal for dinner.

The most recent, as in I noticed it around lunch today, Kinja “update” has borked it almost beyond use on my mobile (Samsung S8 using Chrome).

I really just wanted an excuse to post this image.

Australian Open

For those who are interested, the women’s final (Osaka v. Kvitova) is on right now. It has been an awesome match so far. This is what a final should be.

Fresh start to the day - OT

Today has potential to be a good day. Hopefully learning about these will help some of us have a fantastic Friday.

Bad pet parents make me angry - first gripe of the new year!

I was just at Tractor Supply, and someone brought their adorable 4ish month old St. Bernard puppy into the store. She was as well behaved as a puppy could be, but she felt the call of nature while in the store. The owner picked her up to make her stop peeing (good job there), but then she stayed in line with her puppy…
