When I first started reading the news online...wait just a minute...before I forget, that was me in the picture yesterday. Okay, when I first started reading the news online...hold it! One more thing. Sleeping Dragon made this comment about yesterday's post. "Wow! Snow angels, without snow look just like a traffic accident." Is that the funniest thing you've read lately or what? So, when I first started reading the news online, I didn't think I was ever get the hang of it. Now I can't read a regular printed paper. I read the Hooterville Daily Dish online and in a particular order. I begin with the obituaries. That may seem odd, but I'm not getting any younger and I know a lot of people, so you never know who will pop up in the obits. I particularly enjoy seeing that an old enemy has big the big one, not that I have enemies. Anyway, this morning a guy I knew from my old bicycling days was smiling back at me. The notice said he died after a long illness. It is shocking to see a former friend among the departed. Luckily, my religion, Deenism, teaches that the universe is just a construct with me as the central character, I don't ever have to worry about dying. Whew! Things in this blog represented to be fact, may or may not actually be true. The writer is frequently wrong, sometimes just full of it, but always judgmental and cranky

Dad reads the obits every morning. He claims he's checking to see if he's in it. - bud upm bump -

I like to think of myself as a figment of the Sneed construct. I hope I am not presuming...

High praise indeed to be mentioned in a Merle Sneed post! Thank you.
I'm a huge fan of your blog.

It is sort of a wake up call that you are getting old when your friends start dying, yes?

Dying is okay I guess.

I often think that people are dead before they're actually dead--like when Buddy Hackett died, I said "I thought he was already dead." I could have sworn he'd died before. Death is a puzzle.

Dennisism is very similar to Deensism

A friend of mine who works in technology says we are the last generation before they discover immortality.
