Monday Stuff On the Way to Other Stuff: Busy Busy Busy

...it's just not been on the Internet. 
     I've spent much of the week planting flowers for The Mama, including rosebushes and a boatload of impatiens. (This was made extra interesting by somehow managing to whack myself in back of one ear by a falling shovel handle. The lump is gradually getting smaller, but I wondered if I'd given myself a free concussion for a while there.) Meanwhile, the Brick has been 20 feet or so up in the air, putting in a new yard light for her, and nailing a chunk of soffit back in place. 
     It's nice to use muscles that haven't had much of a workout lately. The only drawback: we both creak and groan like old people when we get up in the morning. 
    Meanwhile:

Several million in funds from the Clintons' charitable foundation goes to...their friends! Go figure.

Three climbers die on Mount Everest. (Apparently more bodies are on the way.)

A kayak, a paddler...and a fast-moving lightning storm. Yeowch.



Grass-fed protein bars. Sounds yummy, doesn't it?  At least you get a free six-pack if you buy $50 worth of other groceries from Thrive Market.  (Click here or on the link for more.)

Kick a bag...find three ziplocks full of cash!  (From Things I Find in the Garbage)

A flat folding chair that's easy to make -- out of one sheet of plywood.  (From Tiny House Design)

Glow in the dark glasses. Make them yourself, thanks to Instructables.

Drive 2: The Uber Years.  Very silly...and very funny, particularly if you're a Ryan Gosling fan.

And now, from the Department of Worst Puns Ever:

Ella Vader  This should not be SO damn funny!:


Have a great week.



Shame on me -- this is one of those green JD things

Loved the comment about the "free concussion." You've got a great sense of humor! I hope the rest of your visit goes well with no further injury. How admirable of you to say it's good to use the seldom-used muscles. (smile)

Happy Birthday!

...to me. Now you know why birthday freebies were included in this week's 'Stuff' po st . After the money kicked out for peach...
