You know you are getting old when …

Lightbulb
Was taking out the trash and noticed the light by the back door was burned out.
Headed back inside to get a new bulb.
Stopped in the kitchen to get a drink.
Got to the back of the house (where lightbulbs are) but could not for the life of me remember why I was there. I knew it was something important but was drawing a blank.
I figured if I went back out to the area I was in previously I would remember.
And sure enough when I got outside and noticed the light was (still) out – THAT was what I was doing.

Getting old sucks some days.

Thetta redlast

Img 3201Was reading a post from Dave Williams – a photographer that lives to travel, and travels to take photos.

When he was in Iceland he learned the term Thetta redlast. It means:

everything will turn out fine. Things happen, you have no control over them, and whatever is happening just know that it’ll all work out and everything will be alright.

Aka – don’t worry be happy.

Thetta redlast – a good life philosophy to have.

Pooch Pack – a dog suitcase

Muttmover light timbuk2 700x700Soon you too can get a Pooch Pouch – aka a dog suitcase.

And I don’t mean a suitcase your dog can use to carry his toys – I mean a suitcase to carry your dog in. In other words – a Dog Suitcase, not a Dog‘s Suitcase.

I am sorry – I can’t see any of my dogs tolerating being in a suitcase. The Labs were pretty big  and Stella is waaaaayyyyy to hyper.

I think we are doing graduation wrong in the US

Norway FlagNo to sex on roundabouts – that is a headline that will get your attention.

And it follows with this opening sentence

Norway’s high school graduates should refrain from running naked across bridges and having sex on roundabouts lest they give drivers “too much of a surprise”

It is in reference to the post-graduation period called “Russ” for Norway’s graduation Seniors – Which I have heard can get a little wild.
