Short Stuff: 09/17/20

Cache dump of ideas, recommendations, humor, observations, and whatever.

2020/09/17:  If you are a AAA Road Service card holder, and have a driver’s license coming up for renewal, I advise going to a participating AAA location to get that done if your state has that option.  It can be a much more pleasant experience than visiting a crowded DMV.  Not all DMV locations cause long waiting periods, but if your nearest one typically gets buried, AAA is a calmer, less crowded experience.  I’m no way disparaging DMV.  The changes they have made in recent years in my state (CT) made visits a lot more pleasant, and the people working there were a lot less stressed.

2020/09/13:  The Random Images post has been discontinued at this site.  A different variation of it will show up at when that site goes live again in mid to late October.

Random Images: 09/04/20

The gallery is usually updated on Tuesdays and Fridays with pics from my libraries.  Added images become the first item, pushing the last image off the post.  The gallery format change was made to prevent the cropping of the selection icons in the display.

Come on Boss, Wake up!

I like cats AND dogs but will admit that my fondness for dogs arrived much later in life.  During my youth I made no less than 3 visits to the hospital emergency room to get a shot after getting bit in the ass while trying to run away from a dog.

I came across the above photo on Imgur a little over a month ago and at first glance burst into laughter.  This scraggly young kitten with oversized whiskers it may never grow into, in it’s owner’s face demanding to know, “What are we doing today, Boss?”.  

I have a collection of about 80 cell phone wallpapers and I usually rotated through them on a loose 2 or 3 day schedule.  I installed this cat as a wallpaper about 2 weeks ago or more, and rotation has stopped.  No lie, every time my screen lights up to this image it puts a smile on my face or a chuckle escapes.  And it lightens the Quarantine Blues.
