Well, like I said earlier this week when I posted my blog from the Mohegan Sun Casino, as Hurricane goes, it really blows. And it did, as a lot of us can attest to.
Actually we did fine here in Ct. until a damn tree decided to commit suicide and throw itself onto some high tension electrical wires which caused a transformer to explode and several birds to become something resembling a KFC fried dinner. Yes, we had a memorial service after during the day for the deceased critters.
So, naturally we lost power and had to resort to prehistoric times when it came to the usual stuff like cooking, bathing etc. As my other half said, “I’m going to take a “PTA.” Men, consult your female counterparts if you have no idea what it means when a woman says they’re going to take a “PTA.” Trust me on this one, it’s not going to a school PTA meeting.
I myself indulged in a so-called “PTA” effort although, when it comes to men’s anatomies it would be called “P&A.” Ya hafta think about that one. Which I’m sure you’ll figure out if you had “PTA” explained to you beforehand.
Fortunately we escaped with no damage and survived with our grill outdoors for cooking stray animals and an occasional hot dog. Makes you really appreciate our forefathers when they settled in for the night with none of today’s conveniences. WTF did they do with all their time anyhow? Um, oh yeah, that’s why there were so many large families back then…lots of kids. (refer to the Walton’s)
“G-night John Boy, G-night etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc,”
My plan to write on a daily basis at the Mohegan Sun Casino was thwarted, (love that word) due to the inability to log into “WordPress” from their computers, which I was able to do on day one, but not after. Have no clue as to why. Probably because I had no cash to play any stinkin’ slot machines so they figured, screw him, and blocked me. Bastards.
My sympathy goes out to those most affected by Hurricane Sandy and who have lost their homes, and everything in them. Fortunately the toll in fatalities was low and we can be thankful for that. It could have been much worse.
So, all in all, we here in at least this part of Ct. only had to endure the loss of electricity, at least in my area, while others did not do so well. New London, Stonington, and Mystic areas and all along the shoreline into Rhode Island and of course from New York City and all along the East Coast.
My thanks go out to those of you who continued to log on to my site and read previous blogs. Tomorrow I will resume my usual nonsense. However,I must warn you that an impending “Nor’easter” storm is lurking in the distance. Just sayin.’
One final note. Of course, like many of you, we lost all of our food due to the loss of electricity so I’m planning to put on a huge feast for the various forest animals lurking in the woods behind me. Steak, shrimp, hamburg, etc. Nice little setting with candles left over from the nights we didn’t have power, and perhaps some dinner music. It’s the least I can do for our little forest friends.
Best of luck to all of you who still have much clean up to do. Again, thanks for sticking with MisfitWisdom.
NOW…….a really good shower.
Screw that PTA and P&A stuff.
