    Would you recommend the surgery?

    Sorry, “Surrogate”.

    I would still rely on her desires and whoa be unto any “advocate” that went against them, if an advocate got involved.

    You didn’t mention her having or not having the ability to make decisions. I am assuming that she does. I would ask her what she wants. Her decision, regardless of my feelings, would be her decision and I would abide by and respect it.

    Watching A Bridge Too Far

    I never understood the colors and patterns used for camouflage paint schemes on planes. They never seemed to be right for the environment. I remember having a discussion about WW2 plane camo with an Air Force Officer aboard a plane (commercial flight). I asked why planes weren’t painted the color of tarmac (concrete gray) on top and white or even light blue or gray on bottom. He said that the Army Air Corp painted the planes the way they did to differentiate them from civilian aircraft and that “they” thought that they might have planes stored on grassy lots for camo. I said then “Why not pain them the color of grass?”. He put his headphones on and pretended to go to sleep...I don’t think he really knew.

    Pranking Google

    Oh, that’s good. Hahaha...I guess I didn’t catch that this guy was portraying himself as someone else and as a Google agent.

    Pranking Google

    A lot of these phone spoofers use a person’s number who is totally unaware, like me and my number. I get calls all the time from people wanting to know why I called them when I did not. I also get calls that I don’t answer and then call back only to find they have no idea how I got called from their number. I have noticed that if I don’t answer my phone when I get calls from numbers I don’t recognize the calls have diminished a great deal. From 3 or 4 a day to one a week now.

    Is that an attempt at an insult or humor? When people tell other people that they shouldn’t judge they themselves are being judgemental, in my opinion. I am old enough to know my own mind and I don’t need others telling me how I should think or act, thank you very much.

    Speaking of fly-ing.

    These things are great, and yes, they hurt when you touch them. My poor dog found this out the hard way. I was seeking out a fly and had pressed the buttons. They hold a charge, like a capacitor. Or maybe it is a capacitor. Anyway, my dog Daisy was curious and she put her wet nose against the screen to check it out as I held the swatter by the handle by my side. Before I even realized what was happening I heard a “SNAP”, a yelp and my girly dog flew out the doggy door yelping and rubbing her nose in the grass. I felt so bad but I couldn’t help laughing.

    I always laugh when people say that judging people is wrong.

    I call them “belt bags”. They use to be all the rage and I think the name killed them. People called them “butt packs”. I have noticed more and more people using them again. When I travel I carry, and will be carrying shortly, a “courier’s bag”. Heck, Indiana Jones carried one.

    Uh, “men” may not be the correct term...”Males”, maybe? Are you still a male if your girlfriend has your cajones in her possession?

    Am watching The Blues Brothers, and have a question

    Those cars were bought by the studio to make the movie. Chicago was scrapping their police fleet and buying new cars. Apparently the studio paid $400 per car just so they could make a movie with the most destroyed vehicles. Over 100 vehicles were destroyed/ crashed / demolished. I seem to recall the state made them put temporary license plates on the cars. I actually got to see part of the high speed chase through Chicago when this movie was filmed. They barricaded the streets and did the scene. Man, what a racket! And they did not speed the film up to make it appear that these guys were moving fast. They were haulin’ uh, butt, when they were doing the chase scenes. In looking for info info on the plates to verify what I suspect I found this interesting link about the movie. Lots of cool trivia. http://bluesbrothersofficialsite.com/n-11726-the-blues-brothers-movie-chicago-premier-6-16-80-35-years-ago.html

    That spur is to cause pain at every pull of the trigger to remind the buyer that they are a jackass...anyone that spends that kind of money on that kind of...thing, can’t be all there. I am pretty sure the builder ain’t all there either.

    Flying has changed in the last few years

    ...At least on Alaska Airlines. I had to fly to Boston for a week long training class for work. I have not flown in 5 years. When I was getting ready to board I shut off my phones and my laptop. When I got on the plane and they were ready to taxi they announced all phones must be in airplane mode and to stow electronics. No mention of turning it off. You can text while flying and you can get internet access, for a few, of course. They passed out little tablets with at least 25 new movie selections on them for $10. Or, you could watch movies on your phone or laptop, for a fee, of course. My first leg took me to L.A. One restaurant in the airport has a menu robot out front. Pretty cool, actually. When I landed in Boston I decided to take Uber. Never did that before. Signed up online before exiting the plane and was all set when I left baggage claim. I walked about 300 yards. Requested pickup and a nice fella from Africa picked me up and brought me to my hotel for $20. I gave him a tip and was where I needed to be. Easy as pie, and it was nearly half the price of a taxi. Pretty cool experience today.
