For What It’s Worth.. 47.. October 17, 2011

TID-BITS ..

WHAT ARE YOU DOING CAPTAIN.. TAKING STUPID PILLS .. IT IS SAD ..

Yesterday.. in FWIW .. 46 .. towards the end of the writing .. I began a paragraph with .. “Sadly.. the Bobsey population fluctuates ..  some die” .. and I went on to talk about ME not packing them well enough to survive travel breakage .. and about ME losing them by not zipping up back and shoulder bag zippers .. etc ..

OK.. I have a small Nikon Digital Camera .. S4100 .. and it has a special USB cord unique to it  (with a mini and a standard USB plug at its ends)  which I use to download and to mail photographs .. it also serves to recharge the camera’s battery..

WITHOUT THIS CORD.. I can NOT recharge its battery NOR can I send photos using this method (as opposed to using a card reader which I can now do.. so it is not totally curtains if I lose it.. but still must have it to recharge the battery..) ..

SO I WRITE YOU ABOUT LOSING THINGS.. and then in ten minutes.. I get up and I leave the internet cafe WITHOUT THIS SPECIAL USB CORD..

I had just written about this problem WITH ME and BAM .. I do it.. I drop it on the floor and with NO CLUE IT WAS GONE.. I LEAVE the internet cafe .. I did NOT CHECK FOR IT.. GONE ..

HERE COMES A LAD.. I HAVE NEVER SEEN AND I WILL NEVER SEE AGAIN I DON’T THINK.. BUT I STAND OUT HE DOES NOT AND SO MAYBE HE HAS SEEN ME HERE MANY TIMES.. MAYBE.. JUST MAYBE.. ONE TIME I WAS NICE TO HIM..

HERE HE COMES.. TROTTING AFTER ME  UP THE ALLEYWAY .. SAYING TO ME ..  ‘ SIR.. YOU LEFT THIS ON THE FLOOR BY YOUR COMPUTER.. ”

WHEW .. is somebody.. is something .. somewhere LOOKING OUT FOR ME..

To get another one..  I may’ve had to buy a new camera..

WHAT IS IT YOU LIKE ABOUT INDIA CAPTAIN..

_______________________________________________________

Today’s..  SIXTY FOUR THOUSAND DOLLAR QUESTION ..

DO YOU THINK THAT BEFORE HE LOST HIS MIND.. HOWARD HUGHES CAME TO INDIA.. AND THAT IS WHY HE LOST HIS MIND.. ?

These @#$’g cockroaches are getting to me.. I am killing each.. and I am killing every single one I see and can kill.. the beasties are quick I must say .. even the teeny WEENY tiny itty bitty babies are quick ..

They get into EVERYTHING THAT THEY CAN GET INTO.. how they get into things I do NOT know.. I have cupboards they get into.. I have to wait for night.. then inside the cupboard PUT A BRIGHT LIGHT .. shut the door and LOOK FOR LIGHT LEAKS .. and plug them up..

They seem to be able to get into the hinge side of a door .. HOW I CAN NOT FATHOM.. maybe they sit and wait for me  to open the door and slip in.. it is UNCANNY..

So the  floor is covered with cockroach bodies..  yes I sweep them up about once a day .. BUT .. SIGH ..

This very morning.. (YOU ALL WOULD MISS THIS).. last night as I was going to bed ..

I forgot to put my toothbrush into its sealed zip-loc bag and further to then  roll it up.. and this morning..on my toothbrush bristles.. what do I see.. COCKROACH DROPPINGS.. on my toothbrush..

POOR HOWARD HUGHES .. it would’ve driven him over the edge.. MAYBE IT DID..

It is about to drive ME OVER THE EDGE.. I swear to God ..
