    Just a few days ago my MIL had a Fox tracking her while she was walking he adorable 8lb pooch.  
    Tom Rush discussed walking extra small dogs in one of his recorded shows.  His description ended up as the album title:  "Trolling for Owls". :D

    Whether its bears, big cats, microscopic germs, or the vacuum and radiation of space, the universe wants you to die.  Remarkable how so many fail to comprehend this.

    Here I was figuring it was just mostly my wife.

    Man, now I have the whole Universe wanting me dead?

    I should have never stopped drinking.   :s

    The universe is out to get you... I blame Entropy.



    Have a nice day. 🤣

    No doubt you are correct.  I tried explaining to the wife once, (thinking she would better understand her world and why things are as they are) a fairly simple explanation of the basic principles of Thermal Dynamics, but she launched into an angry tirade about how men over complicate things and try to explain everything.

    The other day, when she told me that I was never wrong, or ever sorry about anything, I stopped myself from describing just how very untrue that statement was, with specific dates for examples.

    If I had told her, I think Entropy would have come in the form of a brick.

    Mook I empathize! Some years ago I calmly explained to my lovely and charming extreme type A wife that as a trained engineer it would be an absolute act of futility to even attempt to argue with my infallible precise logic. 
    She didn’t listen but so far hasn’t gone kinetic. She just declares victory and that’s the end of discussion.
