Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

The Patriots actually got more in return for Jimmy Garappolo (a 2nd Rd pick plus Brian Hoyer) than they got for trading Jamie Collins a year earlier (3rd Rd pick)... So Rand Paul was assaulted by a neighbor while Paul was mowing his lawn. Not excusing the attack but I do have to wonder just how early was Paul mowing his lawn? And who mows their lawn in November?... Inadvertently giving birth to the show Rick and Morty... "If the able and good withdraw themselves from Society [Government], the venal and ignorant will succeed." John Tyler 1783... Heh heh... Hillary Clinton's campaign manager's name was Robby Mook. She had a mook run her campaign and people were surprised she lost?... The Violent Femmes song Gone Daddy Gone has the best rock xylophone in history... Best random Halloween costume - guy wearing Red Sox jersey holding handful of losing scratch tickets - dressed as a Masshole... Can a welcome mat be viewed as an invitation to enter an unoccupied home?... Henry Miller's 11 Commandments of Writing... Just a reminder - the Red Sox magic number is now 163...


  1. In Kentucky like a lot of fly over country it's still warm. Some places you never stop mowing your lawn, you just get to open the interval.

  2. I need to mow my lawn, and I'm in Maryland. Very similar climate.

    On the plus side, you don't need a snow blower. Often. ;-)

  3. Between guy neighbors it's usually one of three things - the lawn (if Paul wasn't mowing at 6:00 am then maybe his dog was leaving his business on the neighbors lawn), money (even things borrowed that later had to be replaced) or something with the wives. If Paul doesn't press charges my money would be on the last.

    If Paul acted inappropriately to or with the other guy's wife then he won't want this to be a big deal and probably deserved the 5 broken ribs.

  4. Honestly if you're mowing your lawn at 6 am you deserve a beating too.
