~ Rain? ~ Geezer ~ Get Shorty ~ Fritos!

Good 38º soon to be raining morning.
Pressure is going down down down....
Yesterday I puttered around and cleaned, etc. I took the pumpkin
and peeled it, cut in to chunks, and put in the Cuizzzzzz... and pureéd it
and bagged in zip freezer bags for later use.
Looks like about 10 cups after I drained it.
Maggie and I went into town. To the post office to mail off
more old pictures I had found of friends and their children
.... taken way back maybe 25 years ago....
So, standing in line
and this old geezer behind me (told me he was 80) noticed my
Patriots jacket and made the stupid
statement, "I HATE the Patriots!" "And just what did they ever do
to you?" "I just hate them." "Is there anyone you DO like?"
"I was a Charger fan when I lived in San Diego and then I became
a Raiders fan." "Hmmmm..." "You know all of my family and friends like different teams, but none of us HATE another team." (In fact my friend Suz, a Bears fan, said if I ever go to Foxborough she'd go with me and
be a Patriots fan for a day! Great, huh!) So this geezer is going on and on
and I interrupt him saying, "All the teams are good, I don't dislike the
Raiders, it's their fans I don't like!" He was quiet and then I said, "All the
stupid gang bangers wear Raiders shirts/hats, etc." He said, "I wear my
Raiders shirt to church sometimes." I laughed and patted him on the
shoulder and said, "At least God loves you!" Then as I was walking out
of the PO he turned and said (His second stupid
statement!) "Tom Brady would be a better quarterback if he'd bring all
his illegitimate children to the games." I didn't even reply. There were 6 other men in line and they all looked at me, rolled their eyes, and one of them said, "He is a weirdo!"  Sigh.....

The sunset had nothing to shout about....
Well, there were two things I liked....
and Mr. Hummer that kept buzzing around my head and finally landed
in the tree..
 He was pretty fuzzy behind that branch.
We had reruns for dinner and had a roaring fire. I watched some Tivo'd shows and then the movie, "Get Shorty", 1995. A mobster/loan shark, who goes to Hollywood and discovers the movie
industry is much like his current job. It stars....
I cannot STAND Dennis Farina! What a putz. Reminds me of someone
I know. Anyway, there was a line in the movie that made me laugh and think of my friend, Lydia.... "What kind of writing pays the best? ... Ransom notes."
As we await the rain I'm going to do some laundry and mop. Oh yeah!
Have a wonderful Saturday.
Nuff said. Ciao.
