The Friday Fives

1. What is a fact about the human body that not many people know about?

One person in 20 has an extra rib and it is usually a male

2. What’s a conspiracy theory that annoys you due to how easily disprovable it is?

We landed a man on the moon – pick up a pair of Binoculars or a telescope and just look – we left lots of crap there on :that “Lunar” movie set.

3. What’s the best board game ever?


4. You’ve been tasked with redesigning the human body, what features are you adding or removing?

A prehensile tail.

5. Are you going to keep wearing your mask in places where you are no longer required to?

The Eagle Scout me says yes but I am already getting pretty lax around mask stuff now that I am double Moderna-ed. I was in Mesa County last weekend and most of Grand Junction and Fruita have stopped wearing masks altogether . It was an odd feeling seeing folks in stores with no masks. I am happy the CDC has eased up on mask restrictions but I am concerned as the unvaxxed will go maskless as well and there is no way of knowing who those folks are – it will make going to crowded events a mask worthy event if at all until 70% or more get vaccinated.

The Friday Fives

1. You’ve been given an elephant. You can’t give it away or sell it. What do you do with your elephant?

Haul her off to my mom’s to allow it to frolic on their acreage – then collect/harvest the elephant manure – bag it up and sell exotic nutrient-rich elephant manure for gardening at farmer’s markets all over the state.

2. What is the worst thing to Microwave?

Kittens – don’t. just.don’t. Don’t even ask me to explain

3. What can your brain just not comprehend?

Long division – I have always be challenged by division it is probably a dyslexic thing but I have never mastered it – I always have to use a spreadsheet to lay ou the basic formula.

4. The last song you listened or listening to is now your theme song, what is your theme song?

Eddie Money’s “Take Me Home Tonight.” Not really thrilled that I am stuck with that.

5. What war crime will you likely be charged with.

Laundry piling offensiveness – I am always behind on my laundry.

Pretty great weekend lined up – off to travel across the state to Mack to see Mom and Jim – we are all fully vaccinated – and I haven’t seen her since June when they were in town for my nieces high school graduation. It will be great to seem them again.

The Friday Fives

1. What is your “Did it before it was cool” thing?
Served in the army, in the 80s when it wasn’t too cool (but great because it was before the forever wars begun in the 90s) Now serving n the military is considered a pretty cool thing.

2. What song lyric makes a hot tune but terrible life advice?
Lionel Richie’s “Walking on the ceiling.” Trust me, just don’t try it. I mean, just don’t

Roy Wyne Nll reporting here from the new ntion of Wles where they’ve mde the spelling of the home lnd even more confusing.

Jonny Quest probably, although I was also a huge Scooby-Doo fan. Remember Lassie’s Rescue Rangers – that one was awesome.

5. What is a good game nobody has heard about?
People may have heard of this but I just heard about it and it looks awesome – Five-hand Pinochle – looks to be quite cutthroat.

The Friday Fives

1. How would you describe your music taste?
Eclectic. I am not a top 40 guy. I like the deep tracks and deep cuts and generally drift to the oldies and rarely heard stuff.

2. What was the most recent earworm stuck in your head that you just couldn’t get rid of?
“The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia “

3. What song do you just hate?
Not a song so much as a singer. I have realized I just don’t care for Sammy Hagar at all. No need for him on the airways. He is pretend-rock.

4. You use to love it, but now it is just meh?
I was a really big .38 special fan in my high school years and now, I really don’t get it. Over-produced southern rock. Nah, I will go with the OG Allman Brothers, thank you.

5. Soon, we get to go back to seeing/hearing live music in concert – what/where/who will you seek?
I’d rush off to Red Rocks for some Avett Brothers or Elvis Costello in a hot second – maybe followed by Dolly and if there is one, a John Prine cover band to send off Covid with a fine Fuck You!
