Seeing Jesus

So everyday on my drive to work I see this man who would 100% pass as the White Man Jesus.  Sometimes his hair is down and loose.

Sometimes he pulls it back out of his face.  He always wears sandals.  Sometimes he’s reading a book.  I’m guessing that it’s the New Testament…you know because he’s White Man Jesus.  I think if there is a morning I don’t see him I will panic a little.  You know, WMJ has had enough of White Crazy People and leave.  That would make me sad.

The Words of Maya Angelou

Today we celebrate the Life of Maya Angelou and the Death of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.   These two beautiful human beings left their words for which we can live and learn.

They are more poignant now under the wave of Nationalism taking hold of our Country.  The wave has spread great fear among many in our Country.   We will Rise!

Still I Rise by Dr. Maya Angelou

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may tread me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own back yard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of history’s shame
I rise
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise

Dr. King…Your dream is still alive in many!

The Mish and the Mash

The political climate in America right now is playing havoc with my stomach so I’ve decided to post about other stuff today.

Like this picture of my neighbor’s cat.  I didn’t have my glasses on so from across the street I thought this was a racoon sitting on the front step…

I also see a beaver in this picture.  It’s not…it’s still a gray cat, lol.

Our Rose of Sharon are starting to bloom.  I’m thankful for this because our backyard was looking like a green wilderness.

We recently went out for Linner (Lunch/Dinner) at the Texas Roadhouse.  The food was super delicious.  I got the steak kabobs but the Mrs. got the Prime Rib which was incredible.

I also learned it was normal to put marshmallow on Sweet Potatoes.  I love learning new things, lol.

So, even if Fredo (Donald Trump, Jr.) is being stupid again I will move on to non-political stuff…I hope, lol.

Goodbye Adam West

This weekend Adam West passed on and with his passing he took the best part of television with him…The Caped Crusader!

It was West’s rendition of Batman that made me want to be Batman when I was a child.  Alas, I only got to be Batman on Halloween but it was a start to a life love of the 1966 version of Batman that I held all other incarnations too.

Who could forget Shark Repellent?

Or the Bat-tusi?

He was 100% West!  The best Batman ever has died 😦

Anna Marie Duke (Patty Duke) Died Today

When I was a kid I loved to watch The Patty Duke Show re-runs on TV.  The theme song was so much fun.  Patty and Cathy kept me entertained.

Today Patty Duke died.  She had a troubled life but fought her way back.  I read her Autobiography years ago and was shocked by all she went through.

RIP Anna Marie Duke.

Meet Cathy, who’s lived most everywhere,
From Zanzibar to Barclay Square.
But Patty’s only seen the sight.
A girl can see from Brooklyn Heights —
What a crazy pair!

But they’re cousins,
Identical cousins all the way.
One pair of matching bookends,
Different as night and day.

Where Cathy adores a minuet,
The Ballet Russes, and crepe suzette,
Our Patty loves to rock and roll,
A hot dog makes her lose control —
What a wild duet!

Still, they’re cousins,
Identical cousins and you’ll find,
They laugh alike, they walk alike,
At times they even talk alike —

You can lose your mind,
When cousins are two of a kind.

Food Shopping 101

I recently discover that most people don’t do things like I do things.  Example…food shopping.  I cut my coupons, got my cart and recycled bags and headed out with my list of what we needed for the week.  So far normal, right?

I took Pepe King Prawn with me because I’ve always got some kind of action figure in my pocket.  My wife recently got Pepe for me because well he’s the most awesome Muppet (sorry Kermit) and she’s cool like that.

These are just a few pictures I texted to my wife while doing the food shopping….

Yes I’m a sick bastard!

IMG_1708 (300x400)

I like to have fun!

Sean Penn…get it…Champagne, lol.  Oh Pepe, you slay me!

The shopping trip only took 2 hours and everyone was looking at me like I had a mental problem.  They were just jealous that I do not hide my freak flag.  I wave that baby back and forth with pride!
