You don't realize how you are slowly getting weird, until one day you notice something that might scare a visitor

We get that reaction when visitors discover that we're flagrantly vermiposting in our kitchen.

I don't go down the hallway to our teen's bathroom or bedroom unless the CDC shows up to take a sample.

It was that bowl of chicken blood, or maybe the fish heads in the freezer.

No, but I realized my retirement wardrobe was getting more & more casual and I need to ramp it up a notch or I'll become one of those crazy ladies who wear bedroom slippers out .

When I first FIRE'd, moved out to Vegas, got up in morning, put on robe, walked out into street, with robe flapping all over the place in wind, while posting a letter up the block.

Wife got wind from neighbor that some nut, with robe, and half bareass, was seen mumbling to himself, unshaven, like Vinny da Chin, and posting letter.

I never told her it was me.

Hmmm, something that might scare a visitor....hmmm. The only thing I can think of would be my gun...but in TX most everyone has one of those.....

I reckon they'd have to be out-of-towners......

My lack sense of humor takes some getting used to, but otherwise I'm relatively normal based on outward appearance...

Where's your mask? You could poke a hole for the cigar, then pin the mask on with some of your "hardware"...

Just looking at that gives me the creepy "that looks painful" physical response that I'd get by seeing a man kicked in the crotch.

That's the guy who will invariably be in front of me as I'm late for a flight and we go through the security screening at the airport.

His parents must be very proud.

Those are my early AM (East Coast time zone) reading material to go with my coffee.
Don't change a thing! It's my best and cheapest entertainment.
