Wicked Commentary

Now none of these are the usual, “I’ll diet, or exercise more” but resolutions of a completely different nature upon which my latest experiences taught me some valuable lessons.  This so called recovery period from a loved one’s death has been interesting to say the least.

1. Don’t get yourself locked out of your house at 11PM during a gale storm. Yes, that’s exactly what I did on Saturday, Dec. 14th.  I had just gone to bed when Merlin my adorable, loving, German Shepherd tapped me on the shoulder letting me know he had to go potty. I got up and when I opened the kitchen door to the mudroom, I discovered the back door to the porch was wide open. Thinking it was not locked it, I closed it.

Merlin went potty and I went to get into the house but it was locked. Thank God it was warm that night as I had only my pj’s on.  It was inky black and I could barely see in front of my face. I searched each window to see if one of them was not locked down tight to no avail. So I ended up breaking into my own house, but not before I fell down in one of my flower beds.  My hip, my thigh, and my forearm were hurt, but I gallantly got back up and decided to break into my own house. That will remain my secret for now.

Of course I had to take another shower as my back was covered with mud and leaves, including my hair.  This whole thing was a hair brained idea anyway.  If my brain had been firing on all pistons I would have checked the mudroom door before I closed it.  Just left over vestiges of a chaotic life these past two months.

2.  Don’t go starting up an old 1981 jeep on Christmas eve night at 10Pm. It was 11 degrees that night and since I was sick in bed the whole week prior to Christmas I didn’t start up or run the jeep that whole week. I decided I had better.  Well, after 20 minutes I finally got that tank to idle without keeping my foot on the gas. I sat there awhile letting it run. I then tried to get out the doors and they were so iced up I couldn’t open them. I threw my whole body force against them with no luck.

I called my friend Cindy (and landlord) and she couldn’t stop laughing knowing about my break in of the house story. She told me she would send Bob, (her husband and my landlord) over to get me out. Instead, 3 of the farm hands showed up to rescue me.  John, who likes to tease me mercilessly, got the door open without a problem. Then he went on to explain to Ms. Pat as they like to call me,  how to use the handle of the door to get it open. It took everything I could do not to whack him over the head.

3. Don’t go out on the road unless you realize there is black ice and you can control a vehicle on ice. That was exactly what I did last Monday to go to the senior center to see some friends and eat a hot meal. As I turned out onto my road, the jeep suddenly was out of control fish tailing all over the place. My arms were going a mile a minute trying to keep the jeep straight. I finally got it down to another farmers’ place and pulled into his driveway not knowing what the heck was going on. I looked up the road and saw black ice all over it.

I was so relieved that none of the Amish were coming up the road in their buggies so I didn’t take them into eternity. Those buggies don’t stand a chance against a 2 ton tank. Just the thought of killing those magnificent horses made chills go down my spine. And of course I would hate to kill my friends on this road. Lesson learned. Check the damn road for bloody sake.

4. Do not put a sandwich in the microwave and walk away.  As it turned out my microwave blew up in smoke. I immediately disconnected the plug and pulled the sandwich out while smoke came pouring out the door. Hey, I didn’t want that sandwich ruined. The microwave went out the door on Monday night to the trash heap. Lesson learned don’t ignore loud booms in the house.

5. Do not fool with a sneaky, wily mouse.  I had a mouse in my spice cabinet which is weird since there is nothing to eat in there. Every fall we’d get them and Ron would bait them and catch about 4 of those field mice until they were gone.

No such luck for me. I baited those traps and just before falling asleep I’d hear a snap and was sure the mouse was caught. Not only did that mouse get some of the peanut butter, but there was no dead mouse.  And he’d have the nerve to come back the next night and eat what he didn’t get while I had the trap reset.

One morning I found 2 mouse turds on my desk by the computer where there is absolutely nothing to eat.  I don’t eat at my computer. Ah, I thought, Wily Willy is taunting me.  And besides that Zima, the fearless mouse killer never got him. She was on the bed in my study.  I asked Zima what the hell she was doing sleeping while that mouse was on my desk. The answer I got was a big yawn.

Since Zima started sleeping in the house now that it’s cold, Wily Willy has disappeared. I guess she got him after all. That cat never stops eating anyway. How could she pass up a tasty morsel like Wily Willy? 

Lesson learned, let the cat get the doggone mice.

******************************************************************

New Years Resolutions are boring since we all have the tendency to forget them on January 2nd.  So don’t bother making any.  You will just end up feeling like a failure if you indeed even think about them ever again that year.

GOD BLESS YOU ALL AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!

MIRACLES DO HAPPEN!  TRUST IN GOD FOR HE WILL TAKE OUT THE WICKED AND PERHAPS SOMETHING WILL GET RID OF OUR FECKLESS DICTATOR.

HEY I SURVIVED THE PAST 2 MONTHS UNDER ALL MY FOIBLES AND FUZZY BRAIN MATTER. ALMOST ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.

  2. PepperHawk, How I so identify with your “foibles”. I had a stroke a few years back, that left my body okay, and my mind for some time a useless wreck. I can only look back and laugh at some of the stunts I pulled, and the memory lapses (which I have to this day~!) I suffered through. My Beloved Friend, things will improve. Especially now that Zima is catching your Wily Willy mouses~! L O L ~! 😀

    Happy New Year, and a Healthy one. My Love and Prayers with you~!

      Yes, I did make it to my destination by creeping down my road all the way. After that there is another little road that had black ice, but then I get to an artery that is more traveled so I didn’t have to worry over that one too much, but still took my time. Whew, that was some trip.

    If your vehicle has rubber door moulding (weather seals)spray them with silicone.We have a Lincoln Town Car and an F150 and both are thus treated along with those of close friends.
    This is the difference between getting in the car and standing beside of it.Do the same thing to the weather seal around the trunk if the vehicle has one.I am a retired mechanic and sometimes,active machinist.I specialized in high end Euorpean cars and they are why we own Lincolns and Fords.

      Thanks for the info and suggestion. Now where do I get this silicone? From an auto store like Napa? Or just anywhere. I appreciate a mechanic’s advance since I know you have the experience I don’t have. This jeep is so different from my Honda. I never had to do a thing to it to get it started or getting iced up doors I couldn’t open. Sigh. Yeah it has a back door opening but the handle is gone and can’t get it open. Any ideas on that one?

        Peppermint,
        Any parts shop should have the silicone spray.I spray a small piant brush with it and paint it on.I don’t know about the rear door.I am assuming a “hatchback”of some kind.If the Honda has a fuel injected engine instead of a carburetor,put a can of two of injector cleaner in it when the fuel gets low.Also have your local mechanic change the fuel filter that should be between the gas tank and the engine in the fuel supply line.
        I like NAPA because it is more like an old time parts house and has fewer things that stink up the car and fewer sets of fuzzy dice to hang off the rear view mirror.

            The oil that lubricates the engines of our lives IS a sense of humor.I can’t visualize life without one. Mine goes to the ribald and the preposterous.Some people say I can make a dog laugh.
            With proper maintainence,that jeep should work for a very long time.
            My experience with small Japanese engines has no been good.They seem to blow a head gasket at the most inconvenient times.That motor may not be REALLY fixable and replacements are available but costly.
            Does the Jeep have an inline fuel filter?It is UNDER the vehicle and is referred to as “The forgotten filter” and the same goes for those in automatic transmissions.I never bother the transmission filters as long as the shift is OK regardless of mileage.It ain’t broke and don’t need fixing.

            I can’t tell you if the jeep has an inline fuel filter. When it went to the mechanic I told them to check all filters. I had a big maintenance job done to check everything. The alternator was bad and they replaced that and I have a new battery. I told them to check all filters, all belts and wires, do an oil change, check all fluids, tire pressure, etc. The whole job was a bit costly but before I drove it I wanted to make sure it was gone over. I guess to see if it had an inline fuel filter I’d have to get under that tank. But, the mechanic most likely had it up. The shift is fine. The jeep is so loud is all I can say.

            Some guys at Walmart saw me get into that tank and they had to comment on it and laughed. I just told them it’s an antique so be careful what you say and laughed with them.

  6. Saw the latest rescue cat go by with a mouse toy. Thought: “where did he find one with a long tail like that that he hadn’t already chewed off”. Not a toy. Extensive search of the house found a hole behind one of the cabinets, that could not be reached to plug without taking the cabinet out, along with the tiled counter. Same tile is no longer made. On the way in, found an excruciatingly slow drip that had been softening the counter shell pressboard and gradually reducing ti to black mold and incorporating several of the cabinets.
    So the cat helped our health while trashing the wallet to the tune of a complete kitchen overhaul.
    Ignorance is bliss, and cheaper.

            Starclan eh? Well sounds like a good place if you can speak to other cats in their dreams. Ah I see if not behave, you go to Dark forest. I wonder what goes on there.

  17. Happy New Year Pepp! Glad to hear that you are surviving the weather, your Jeep, the mice, et al! I know you’re a fighter and you WILL triumph!

    Ya know, the great thing about a screw-up is that we learn yet one more way NOT to do something – that is, if we can remember what it was we were trying to do in the first place??????

    Sorry, lost my train of thought, anyway glad that Zima finally got that pesky mouse. Imagine the little bugger crapping little mouse turds when he saw Zima had him in her sights. I hope Zima enjoyed her mouse desserts – he got his, she got hers.

    Best to you and keep warm.

      G92,

      Happy New Year to you too. Oh, yeah, I’m a fighter all right and hopefully I learn from my mistakes unless like you said I forget about it. That happens when one ripens to a wise age.

      Yeah, I was appalled that the little bugger left his turds on my desk to taunt me. But, Zima got the little pest, end of him. Now I have another one I’ll try to catch unless Zima does her job and gets this one too.

      Stay warm! Ha, that’s going to be the task of the decade with 0 degrees all day Monday and below that night. I’m not looking forward that and I hope the wind doesn’t take trees down over the power lines. Then it will be so miserable, no heat, no power which is not not unusual here. I swear I’ve never seen so many power outrages since I came here.

          Grouchy, yes isn’t that the truth? It is weird how life works sometimes. I just hope I can stay independent with a means of transportation. I’m not ready to sit at home all day moping around. I feel so trapped if I can’t get out of here when I want to.

    Well Peppermintfarm

    The Dark Forest I heard is not a nice place cats that go there never feel the sun on the pelt there is hardly any prey and they are doom to walk alone unless they are remember for their bad deeds then they become strong and can escape so now the clan no longer tells The dark forest cat stories to their kits
