[WOW] The Kansas City Chiefs football team were playing the Las Vegas Raiders in Kansas City. Recall that Obama had eliminated patriotic military flyovers at events. So a group of men in Kansas City who do some formation flying in their own planes, decided they’d volunteer to save this beautiful tradition and pick up the slack.

They invited a couple of other groups to join them and before they knew it, they had 48 men with their own airplanes signing up to join in. If they had more time, they probably would have gotten an even larger group as people kept joining and a 49th was added near the kickoff. It’s pretty impressive and it makes you proud to be an American. The formation is fantastic, especially with so many planes, obviously all former Naval aviators. Video

[“Driving too slow”] Kudos to the cop who gave the slow-poke tourist a ticket. Me and about a hundred other cars got stuck yesterday behind a tourist going 5mph below the limit. It was driving me crazy.

[Refugees] I understand Ukraine is a mess, but accepting 100,000 refugees to the US? We can’t even help our seniors, veterans, disabled and we have an open door policy? God help us.

[Stupid] Seriously, I don’t know exactly when the UFO landed and dumped off all of these stupid people. But, apparently they aren’t coming back for them.

[Sound Library] Ocean researchers want to create a global library of undersea sounds. The project seeks to establish a library of valuable reference data for a range of marine applications

[Russian Army] I hope all the negative information we are getting about the Russian army is correct because they sound like they are a mess. I thought the Russians would come in like blitzkrieg and subjugate them real fast.

[Tourist Drivers] Some of these idiots driving US1 think there on The Fast And Furious.

[Hourly Pay] About third of workers earn less than $15 an hour. It doesn’t matter how much money you make per hour, the landlords, merchants, and tax men will just take more of it. What matters is you letting them get away from sticking their laws up your butt and laughing all the way to the bank.
This missing bite cookie cutter is how you keep all the cookies for yourself.
[NATO] We always though NATO was a waste of money because they were so weak and never did anything much. Not any more! Who would have thought that NATO and the Ukraines would come together so strongly. A big worry is that if Putin gets backed into a corner he just might get his army to wake up and shock and awe the Ukraines.

Living in the Keys is great especially if you live on a large boat. However, during cold spells, it pays to have a nice sleeping bag, an old blonde or red head usually works well too.

[Term Limits] Putin has been dictator for 21 years. This is the best argument for term limits I can think of.

[Night Lies] Dreams are night lies. Don’t believe them.

[Electric Vehicle Race] GMC Hummer EV vs Rivian R1T drag & roll race. These things are super fast! Video

[Friday Joke] A woman was leaving a coffee shop with her morning coffee when she noticed a most unusual funeral procession approaching the nearby cemetery. A long black hearse was followed by a second long black hearse about 50 feet behind. Behind the second hearse was a solitary woman walking a pit bull on a leash. Behind her were 200 women walking single file. The woman couldn’t stand the curiosity. She respectfully approached the woman walking the dog and said, “I am so sorry for your loss, and I know now is a bad time to disturb you, but I’ve never seen a funeral like this. Whose funeral is it?”
The woman replied, “Well, that first hearse is for my husband.” “What happened to him?” The woman replied, “My dog attacked and killed him.” She inquired further, “Well, who is in the second hearse?” The woman answered, “My mother-in-law. She was trying to help my husband when the dog turned on her.”A poignant and thoughtful moment of silence passed between the two women. “Can I borrow the dog?” “Yes, but you’ll have to get in line.”
[Giant Steps] This is a new house on Newfound Harbor Channel. I can’t figure out why they would build a giant 8’ wide staircase going to their dock covering what little yard they had. It even flares at the bottom claiming more of the yard. Definitely snowbirds who listened to their architect’s pipe dreams.
[Friday Joke] A woman went into the pharmacy and said to the pharmacist, “’I would like to buy some cyanide.”
The pharmacist asked, “Why in the world do you need cyanide?”
“I need it to poison my husband.”
“I can’t give you cyanide to kill your husband! That’s against the law. They’ll throw both of us in jail. Absolutely not! You cannot have any cyanide.”
The woman reached into her purse and pulled out pictures of her husband in bed with the pharmacist’s wife. The pharmacist looked at the pictures, paused a moment, and replied, “Well now, that’s different. You didn’t tell me you had a prescription.”

You talking to me? You talking to me? You talking to me? Then who the hell are you talkin’ too?

[Russian Sanctions] Elizaveta Peskova, a 24-year-old Russian socialite and daughter of Vladimir Putin’s chief propagandist, Dmitry Peskov, has been caught up in the sanctions dragnet the West has cast over Russia in response to its war of aggression against Ukraine, and she’s having an epic series of sads over her plight.

In a recent interview with Insider, Peskova, who told the media outlet that she’s a self-made woman who was blindsided by the sanctions against her, further stated, “For me, it’s totally unfair and unfounded. I was really surprised because it’s weird introducing sanctions [on] someone who is 24 years old and has nothing to do with the situation.”

Sure. But what feels even more unfair is being bombed while you’re sheltering with your children in a nonmilitary facility in your own country, which was brutally invaded without provocation. That’s really fucking unfair. And while Peskova may not be directly involved, her father sure is. On the day of Russia’s invasion, Peskov, in his role as Putin’s lead spokesperson, said, “Ideally, Ukraine should be liberated, cleaned from neo-Nazis, from people sharing pro-Nazi sentiment and ideas.”

[“Driving too slow”] The cop who gave the slow poke from Kansas a ticket for driving too slow should be commended for getting those tourists to wake up. Can you imaging the line behind those folks!

[Friday Joke] Husband: You spent our entire life savings on dogs?
Blonde: They’re Golden Retrievers, honey. They retrieve gold. I did it for us!
