Travel Destinations of Interest

 This is a poor excuse for a blog post. Copy and paste with upgrades, from my friend, John, Kansas answer to Sam Elliot. I have the background work done on two posts for some time; one to annoy the Right and one to annoy the Left. I just don't have the concentration to write them up yet. I'm tired all the time. My days and nights are confused. Go to bed at midnight and maybe sleep by 4:00. I don't want to turn on the AC and If I open the window the sandflies devour me. They mainly live on flower nectar but the females need blood to reproduce. Tanya provides the blossoms and I provide the blood.

The kitchen garden is growing wonderfully well. Lettuce and onions we have had for a while, also a small dish of strawberries every day. Tomatoes are forming and small vegetable marrows too. Tanya picked a few young pea pods which sure tasted good. The garden soil is black clay, holds moisture well but hardens on top quickly in the sun. Tanya has been breaking up the surface with a hoe. When one gets dull, she switches to a sharp one. I sharpened six for her today and even that little bit of work tired me out. 

It rained enough today to cool things down so I will take Lucky out in an hour. Neither of us take heat well. A month after we have had our second shots, I am going into town at noon and hit every little bar, coffee shop and café if it takes two days. We have several new ones I have never been to, including an Irish Pub. 


I have been in many places in my life, but I've never been in Cahoots. Apparently, you can't go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with someone.

I've also never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognizes you there.

I have, however, been in Sane. They don't have an airport; you have to be driven there. I have made several trips there, thanks to my friends and family. I live close so it's a short drive, more3 of a putt actually.

I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I'm not too much on physical activity anymore.

I have also been in Doubt. That is a sad place to go and I try not to visit there too often.

I've been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand firm.

Sometimes I'm in Capable, and I go there more often as I'm getting older.

One of my favourite places to be is in Suspense! It really gets the adrenalin flowing and pumps up the old heart! At my age I need all the stimuli I can get.

Sometimes I think I am in Vincible but life shows me I am not.

When I was young, I never was in Fertile and have four kids to prove it.

People keep telling me I'm in Denial but I'm positive I've never been there before.

I have been in Deepsh** many times; the older I get, the easier it is to get there.

Sigh, I may have been in Continent, but never far from salt water. My travel agent says I’m on the frequent fliers list. Surgery will do that to you sometimes.

  1. haha I've been to all those places too, I was laughing like crazy as I read it all out! Clever stuff
    My garden's doing OK too, the snap peas are starting to appear, and I have a couple of green tomatoes showing.... Oxheart variety, not very pretty but very tasty.

    1. Nice to know I'm not the only one. Don't you love it when the fresh veggies start coming off your own garden?

  2. Had a good laugh at that travelogue! Sorry to hear your insomnia is so bad right now. Have you seen a doctor about your fatigue?

    1. I have sleeping pills but don't take them too often. I don't know if I am physically tired or mentally tired. I suspect the latter

      Delete
  3. Love your travel list - some of those places I am very, very familiar with.
    Glad to hear the garden is thriving. Much less glad to hear that you are struggling. Take care please (and perhaps see a doctor).

    1. I'm on Thyroxin but may need to up the dose. I will look into it.

  4. I'm sorry your insomnia and fatigue is so bad - no wonder you don't feel much like writing. Your garden goodies sound wonderful, though! You're well ahead of us - we had our first feed of fresh spinach today and the strawberries are in full swing, but those are the only things producing in our garden so far. Which is actually fine with me - I'm not ready to start the harvest season yet. :-)

    1. Only thing Tanya has frozen so far is dill and chopped green onion, both for soup come winter.
      Maybe once I can freely leave this house, I will shake my cabin fever or whatever it is.

  6. I'm anxiously awaiting your controversial Left and Right Annoyance Posts now!

    1. You shamed me into it. The other one is a horrendous task. Too much information

      Delete
    2. Well, I did give the controversy a read, you really did take a leap of potential annoyance of either side, didn't you? *LOL* I tend to be a middle ground Moderate in most all things, so what would make the Liberals or Conservatives shit kittens usually doesn't move me as much. I like to look at all sides of any topic... as a Divorce Attorney Friend once told me, there's always Three Sides to any Story he was told: Her side, His side, and the Truth. That kinda goes with almost any topic really when there are two polarized sides that tend towards absolutes.

    3. You will know the post guaranteed to annoy the Left once I get it written. The Right do not have exclusive dibs on conspiracy theories and anti-science attitudes

      Delete
    4. I agree, extremes on both sides exist and anyone who is an Extremist generally can't find balance.

      Delete
    5. John Cleese said it best. Extremists hate moderates
