102 Geocaches

For having blogged about geocaching for as long as he has Southern Man really hasn't done all that many. But this afternoon he hit several while on the way out to The Land (mainly to put that Cache Buddy that he picked up a while ago into a new cache) and passed the century mark plus a couple more.

It has been an uneventful week other than a couple of fairly spectacular political threads / flame wars on Facebook (he even got comments deleted and hisself booted off a thread on Southern Sister's FB, bringing the score to three sites where he's been deleted and/or banned. All liberals, of course; the conservatives seem fairly willing to put up with his BS even when he goes full Tea Party on them). Work goes on as it always does and Southern Man reminds himself every morning how thankful he is to have such a well-paying job. He's joined a Monday-evening Yoga class there, which is...different. Teen son is so busy with work and girlfriend that Southern Man seldom sees him or hears from him even though he lives ten minutes away. Teen daughter appears to be settling in nicely up north at college (Southern Man sends her care packages every now and again) and tween daughter (who also got a care package last week) will fly down here at the end of the month for a few days of Dad Time. It will be her first time to fly alone, so she's pretty excited. Last night was the monthly meeting of the bowling gang where Southern Man rolled mediocre scores but had a good time with his friends anyway. Today he spent most of the afternoon and evening out at The Land intending to stay the night but felt so dirty after working outside that he came home to the apartment for a shower instead. He has got to rig some sort of temporary water supply out there, if for no reason other than to make it easier to wash his hands. And now he's messing around on the 'net and half-watching Star Wars (the original, of course, not the abominable Special Edition or the even more special Blu-Ray edition). Tomorrow he'll pick up a few odds and ends and head back out to The Land, again with the intention of spending the night. We'll see how it goes.

Southernman Dude,

you need to read Demonic and quote several lines a day on southern sister FB Sounds like she may be one of them (especially if she does not like the tea party stuff)

Why is SouthernSister a liberal? Is she a socialist liberal? I have realized the democratic party has been hijacked by gnarly socialists and commies who could not get elected for what they really are so they pretend to be democrats until they get in office and show their real colors. So many elderly people vote straight party line without realizing the devils

PLEASE sound off on this topic...whether you agree with me or not. Would appreciate a thoughtful response.

It would be more accurate to say that she is a statist - a firm believer in solving all problems through Big Government and socialist redistribution. Why? Probably something to do with twenty years working at the state DHS.

I feel for you man. A fellow at work has a mug that reads...the truth has no agenda. Just keep the truth in your conversation and hopefully she will understand.

Sorry man. You just cannot talk common sense to a liberal...they will just shut you off. From a theme from an earlier posting I will venture to say that she has gone to 'the dark side'. I hear Darth Vader is seducing people over by offering cookies (my boy has the t-shirt, black of course). Strange to see good being called evil and evil being called (and accepted) as good. Just keep shaking my head in the oddity of it. What say you?
