Words to live by...

"How beautiful it is to do nothing, and to rest afterward."

[Spanish Proverb]

Ius luxuriae publice datum est

(The right to looseness has been officially given)

"Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders," wrote Ludwig von Mises, "no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others. And no one can find a safe way for himself if society is sweeping towards destruction. Therefore everyone, in his own interest, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle."

Apparently, the crossword puzzle that disappeared from the blog, came back.

There Are Reasons... Really


I should explain why there was no post on Monday. I blame Faye. I should blame myself, though. After all, I set up her access to online slot machines. But, in my defense, I was only following orders. When Faye desires something, I try to fulfill that desire. She owns two cast iron skillets.

The trip on Sunday was pretty much routine. Annoying drivers clustering and also some riding in my blind spot for miles is just the usual. Many of them (but, unfortunately, not all of them) were out-of-staters on their way back to the recently thawed out northern climes. I expected it. That didn't make it any easier to tolerate, of course. I seethed throughout the trip. I just won't gripe about it here.

When evening came and we settled into a motel room (where I try not to think about what we've learned on the various cop shows) and set up the laptop, Faye grabbed control and never gave it up.

It's a bit like the "the dog ate my homework" excuse... Except it wasn't homework and Faye is not a dog (definitely not).

What's the point of being married if you can't blame this kind of thing on your spouse?!?
