Catching Up Or Hell ©

I can’t believe people still come by here.
Actually, I cannot believe there are still as many bloggers as there are left.
Now, I haven’t defected to the dark side (Facebook)
Yes I have an account or three ….. what, someone has to keep an eye on those             fucken Russians.
No, I’m just tired.
The Grimm Reaper with his giant weed whacker has lay claim to 19 family members in the last two years and that takes a toll on one’s soul.

My mother lost both brothers leaving her the last one still kicking from her side of the family.
Aside from that, both my parents are still working hard around the house even though they are in their 90s which also means more work for me.
My father gardens and my mother bakes all the time so I spend a lot of time running back and forth from the various businesses to keep them running their endeavours.

They still drive me nuts.
For instance, the other day I stopped by my parents place in the morning and my father shoved this huge 5 pound container of “Coffeemate” I had just picked up for him towards me and said this is no good.
The previous evening my parents had a guest over so my father put on the coffee pot to make everyone a coffee.
When he had the coffee in the mugs he added a spoon of coffee mate in each and began to stir but instead of desolving it thickened up until it all looked like porridge.
I opened the container and looked at it and it looked ok but there was something familiar about it so I tasted it and looked at my father and asked him “what did you do with that 10 pound bag of pancake mix I bought you”?
I could see the dawning of realization filling his eyes.
Hmm he had used the old coffeemate container to store the pancake mix in and hadn’t marked it so when he added it to the coffee he was making coffee flavoured pancakes instead of cups of coffee.

I have somehow also inherited a bunch of other people that need to be taken here or there that have no one along with one of my best friends who was on his deathbed with no hope, suffering from kidney failure, heart and colon problems. They said he a day or two left.
I walked in and explained to him he owed me money and wasn’t allowed to check out until he paid me.
Some of the hospital staff thought it was funny and others thought it was insensitive but since that speech I gave him he has rebounded and his prognosis is long but hopefully.
Hey, 20 bucks is 20 bucks.

My kids are doing good.
One just got a great job with a future and the other is going to college to become a chef.
Me, I’m not aging gracefully but I refuse to stop being who I am and living my way.
I lost my favourite cat Salem do to a freak accident.
He ate a plant my mother asked me to hold inside for her over the winter and no sooner that I brought the stupid thing in he ran to it and chew some of the leaves and dropped dead from poisoning.
I will leave it at that because it got really ugly after that because I went to the place they sold these plants and ripped them a new one for selling dangerous plants without warning people of the dangers to pets and small children.

This years BBQ went on without a hitch.
Tons of food and booze with plenty of laughs.
We did take note of the ones not with us any more.
The priest did try to swipe my hat but he’s going to need a lot more help than his faith to get away with my lid while it’s still on my head.
So as you can see, little has changed in Walkers life.

How is this for catching up Sally?

Have a nice day

Enough Is Never Enough ©

I think it only right to follow up my last post.
Am I surprised that Trump won?
No, no I am not.
It doesn’t mean it was my choice and if I was an American with a vote he wouldn’t have gotten it.
I would have reluctantly given it to Hillary but would have rather voted for Bernie or even Rubio, but here is the thing.
The Donald, racist, rapist, misogynist, Nazi or any other label that has been hurled at him that he might be, won; and he won by the rules.
Yes she had more votes but that is your system and it’s the same one that elected Obama so suck it up buttercup.
You’re fucked like I had to live with Prime Minister Steven Fucken Harper for 11 years up here until we got rid of him.

The people are pissed Trump found an opening so he took it by appealing to rural communities who HAVE been ignored.
He bull shitted his way into their desires and told them he would take away their pain if they bought into his rhetoric.
Oh, I am only calling Trump a liar for the things I saw him say and deny with my own eyes not from what I have heard others say.

How will Trump rule?
I see the country in turmoil.
I see race wars.
I see social equality wars.
I see blue collar workers battling white collar workers.
The poor…..hmmmmm
Well you see, that’s a hard one because I figure by the time this is all over there will only be 2 classes.
The poor and the rich.
The middle class will be replaced by the police who will keep the rich safe from the poor.
Yes I have an overactive imagination and no I don’t believe this is going to happen in one election cycle but it can be the start of the avalanche unless …..
Unless the republican party can reign him in and of they can’t I wouldn’t be surprised if a coalition of Dems and Reps join to Impeach him…but then he would rally his supporters with his lying rhetoric and hit the streets.

You’re all fucked down there
What can I say

Welcome to Canada
Soon to be the land of the Lost American

Have a nice day

Enough Already ©

It’s been over a fucken year and this stupid election is still going on.
You people down south are nuts.
I mean, how much is this costing?
Trillions of dollars will be spent by the end of this and what will it accomplish, sweet nothings.
How many of you can’t afford health care?

Clinton’s going to win.
Trump is an idiot and is handing it over to her every time he opens his mouth.
The man has destroyed his own party.
I can’t find the words to describe the man.
Is he a commie, a fascist, racist, a psycho zealot with a dildo still stuck up his ass?
What is even more mind boggling is that the hard core republicans are not getting serious and going to war to save their party.
Instead they are either bailing ship or abstaining from it all.
Get the fuck out of here.
Where the hell is the pride of ones party?
The party is a family and if a member of your family goes astray in a extreme way; do you let it destroy your family or do you fight to save it?

If you are a republican and don’t like Trump, don’t vote for Clinton because you hate Trump. Vote for her if you believe in her platform if not vote Libertarian or Green.
In fact I don’t know why the disgruntled republican elite haven’t gathered an army of political power to back one of these other candidates that have some of their interests in mind.

Trump thinks that Canada was allowed to leave the United States…..
Actually he would be in favor of forcing us back.
I don’t know what to say.
I thought Sarah Palen was bad but Donald…

I guess if we wrote the short history version because Canada was part of the British Empire, the U.S.A. left Canada.
In fact in later years, 1812 to be exact we had another war where we burned down the White House.
Which you later burnt down ours in York, so we all broke even on that one.
This is grade 4 history for us in Canada Donald, did you get past kindergarten or are you still failing it?

I have said I like Trumps style of being blunt but I personally can’t agree with his views as a person living on this planet.

To the American people and to anybody in any country in the world, always vote and always vote with your conscience not you heart.

Politics makes me dizzy.
Society makes me crazy.
The world is going to hell
I can smell it in the air
See it in the news
If you don’t know what I am talking about then I can’t tell you

Me, I am waiting for that meteor with our name on it so I can climb the mountain with a bottle of scotch, a nice fat doobie and hope I get lucky and it lands at my feet.
Now that, would be a blast

Have a nice day

Trump Card ©

No ItisI not Facebook CNN.

I have been watching the politics down in the States for the last few months; let’s face it there is shit on anywhere else.
Trumpomania, I must admit I like his style I just think he’s an idiot where it comes to policy and being a people person.
He says he is a Republican but I suspect he is more fascist/communist/opportunist than capitalist.
If elected Trump would be the end of all we know.
How did Donald “Small Hands” Trump manage to be so popular among so many republicans?
Well, that’s a long story but I am surly positive it started with a lie tens of thousands of years ago.
It started with a person wanting to be elected boss and made more promises than he could keep therefore being forced to condemn those he basically lied to.

Since that first lie back in the stone age politicians have piled so many lies on top of each other the poor populace is all fucked up in the brain and tries to see the light despite the confusion not realizing the ground is rushing up to their face.
This is what Trumpomania is.

The people in the States have been lied to by so many politicians that they are running to the moron for help.
Trump’s rise to political power can be compared to the start of Hitler’s early beginnings.
Just look at what he said at the debate the other day.
“If I am President the military will do what I tell them to do and that’s final”.
Those are the words of a dictator, not a president.
There is only one main problem in the United States.
They are not “United” any more.
They are just plain “states” now.
They may have been the U.S.A. !!!!!
Now just, plain jane americans.

This isn’t Trumps fault.
No it’s the fault of the Cruzs, Clintons, Bushs, Obamas …. that came before them.
Politicians did this.
Lies upon lies to get elected.
Politicians have been fucking with peoples needs for so long that the people have resorted to flock in the wrong direction as did the German people did back in the 30s.
Government is suppose to be for the people by the people not for some of the people by the rich to control.

I listen to these candidates speak of strategy.
Who is going for the evangelical vote
Who is going after the African American vote.
Who is going for the Latino vote.
The gay vote.
The gun vote

But you know, I have yet to see or hear one of them say I want to appeal for the American vote.

Black lives matter, all lives matter, get over it.

They say religion should have no part in politics but it does.
Big business should have no part in politics but Super packs drive the parties and candidates.
Lobby groups fund their man to vote their way not yours.

In my opinion, none of the politicians down there represent the American people.
They may represent some of them, maybe, but not all of them and that’s a fact.
I like Bernie Sanders but his ideas are to late.
You would need to start from scratch and that isn’t possible.
Is took 240 years to get here and it will probably take twice that long to fix it if that is possible.

Hillary Clinton, I don’t trust her but am willing to bet she has bigger hands than Trump. “wink”.

Rubio, why, for more of the same bullshit.
Cruz, ah yes, he could be the first Canadian President and we didn’t have to fire a shot.
Maybe we can change all the stars to little maple leafs on the flag.
Trump…….how suicidal are you.

A divided people can not make a country.
They can only fan the flames of discontent.

I think it’s time the people of what was a great nation stepped outside of their homes and hand in hand tell their politicians what they want and to make it happen.
Don’t fool yourself, they can.
Billions are being spent on these caucuses.
Billions that could be spent helping people now.
The people is what made your country great and the politicians are the ones who fucked it up.

The solutions to most of your problems are at hand but your politicians are to busy playing chess with the rest of the world to take a few steps back to solidify what they are loosing a grip on.
It’s people.

On a closing note, as a Canadian and neighbor to the United States, I do care what happens south of the border for many reasons but mostly for my American friends.

Have a nice day

Blown Away ©

Remember that show, Kids say the darndest things hosted by the Ex nice guy Bill Cosby.
You know when your kids come up with shit when they are like 5 or 6 years old that leaves you dumbfounded just before you give yourself a hernia from laughing so hard.
Well, it doesn’t stop at that age, in fact from what I can tell it only gets more…. what’s the word I am looking for…… complicated.

I have an open relationship with my kids and or any kid if they have the guts so come and ask me the hard questions.
Now, I have a thicker skin than most but not by much so I have to suppress a lot of emotions that come naturally to a parent so that I can be in the loop for my kids when they really need me.

That said, my 24 year old stopped by the other day to tell me what happened around Valentines Day.
She now lives with her boyfriend so she decided to do something romantic for them on Valentines Day and maybe a little naughty.
Yes my kids talk to me about the sex issues not their mother.

“I went to the sex shop the other day”.
“You went to Wicked Wanda’s without me”?
“You know how much I love that store”.
“Who was behind the counter, was it the tall blond with the big tits or the raven hair goddess with the round ass”?
“It was the the chubby one”.
“Ah yes, Raul”.
“No, it was the chubby girl”.
“Yeah Raul, he’s a transsexual”.
“You mean a girl pretending to be a guy”?
“No, a guy being a woman”.
You mean the whole time I was asking questions to a guy”.
“Well, if you want to call Raul a guy, I guess, yeah”.

“So what did you buy”?
“Really he’s a guy”?
”Yeah, yeah, get over it and tell me what did you buy”.
I bought coffee flavoured lubricant”.
“Ah, so you like flavour of coffee”?
”Not really but the boyfriend does”.
“I see, but usually the person using it gets the flavour they like”.
“Well if you’re going to put some in your mouth to lubricate his cock you would think you would like to taste a flavour that appeals to you”.
“I just put it on my lips to kiss him”.
“Oh……..did you slide off his face”?
“EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW, I just realized she told me she used it an loved how it tasted”?
“You mean Raul”?

The oldest called me the other day.

''Hi Dad''
"Hey, How’s it going"?
"The boyfriend wants to have kids".
"AH, I see".
"I don’t know what to do"?
"Well, you got to get naked first".
"NO, I know that part, I don’t want kids".
"Then don’t get naked……."

Kids, it never ends

Have a nice weekend

Still Kicking ©

Where do the years go?
It’s funny, only yesterday I was 16 and thinking how long it will be before I hit 40 and now I am 56.
We spent so much time chasing the seconds, the years slip away.
Every year I reflect on the year gone by before I stow it away
I assess what I started with and what I have left from the year before then weigh it against what is new.
What does it all add up to in the end?
The answer is simple.
You survived another year.

Have a nice day

Hospitalville ©

It’s 8 am and I’m sitting here stoned and looking at another 5 rolled joints.
Today I am taking a break from life.
The cats are joisting in the corner with the smallest one winning by the looks of it.
I feel like a general who has been winning all the battles but loosing the war
 On top of what responsibilities I had I have had to help a couple of friends in need, morally and physically being there for some tough news.

Last month as I was watching the TV around 10pm I get a call from a friend who is not feeling well.
I have been telling her for years she has to quit drinking.
She drinks no less than a litre of wine in a few hours, gets drunk and passes out.
She says her nose has been bleeding for hours and won’t stop and she doesn’t feel so good.

So I get up and drive over to her place.
Using the spare keys she left with me in case something ever happened I walk in and find her sprawled on the floor trying to get up.
Hauling her ass up she puts on her outer gear and we climb the stairs from her tomb apartment to the outside where she throws up and stream of blood across the white snow.
I’m thinking this can’t be a good thing.

I put her in the back seat and peeled off actually more like slid off to the hospital.
Pulling up to emergency I mostly carried her to reception where the nurse put her in a wheelchair and asked us to wait in the reception area.
In the reception area there were about 50 people already there waiting to see a doctor.
I hate this.
First I hate hospitals yet I find myself always in one for someone else.
Then there is the 6-8 hour wait in emergency.
Why do they even call it that I don’t know for a place for an emergency they should take a long time getting to you.

So we are sitting next to these people who she starts convulsing and projectile vomit flies out of her mouth all of which is red and black blood clots.
I mean., lots AND LOTS OF IT.
I freaked out but not as much as the rest of the people in the room as they watchthe growing lake of blood around us on the floor.
When I looked around the room people got so scared the ran out of emergency probably thinking there were in the presence of an Ebola carrier.
I the nurses ran over and rushed her off to the back where they started to undress her.
I sat on the other side of the curtain waiting.

After a few hours they determined, she was anaemic hence the nose bleeds and because she hadn’t pinched her nose properly the blood was running down her throat and pooling her stomach then she would puke it out.
That wasn’t her only problem,
She was going through alcohol with drawls and her body started shaking uncontrollably.
It took three of us to hold her down until they could strap her into the bed.
After some blood work they drugged her up and put her on a saline drip.
That’s when I turned and left the hospital only to find a forty-dollar ticket on the car.

In the morning 7 am to be exact the phone rings, it’s buddy and he needs to go to the hospital.
Are you fucken kidding me and he has to go to a hospital at the other end of town.
Pardon me while I have another joint.
Is 9 am to early for a beer?
Yeah, maybe, I’ll have a scotch instead…..

Single malt scotch after Kellogg’s cornflakes don’t go so well.
Oh yeah much better now
Oh, oh yeah, so here I am at 7am dragging my arse out of bed, fighting with two cats for my pants and one who likes untying my boot while I am tying up the other one.
Twenty minutes later I am in the hospital waiting room of yet another hospital.
I swear if he started puking blood……..
Eight hours later I drive him home.
As I was driving off I figured I would go to the other hospital to see how my other friend was doing.
I had called her son the night before to inform him his mother was at the hospital.
They don’t always get along and it’s mostly because of her drinking.

Parking the car in the lot this time I marched through emergency towards the restricted area where I gauged me steps to someone walking towards the door from the other side so that when they opened the door and walked through a step passed them and into the back without the hassle of being told I wasn’t on her family list.
Walking past rows of full beds I find hers.
Curtain wide open she is sitting on the side of the bed, topless and in a jumbo diaper.
At that moment all I could think of was Homer Simpson.

Hello, a little common decency would be fucken nice.
I walked into the cubical and asked how she was.
No answer.
I looked into her eyes and she was totally out of it.
I was jealous.

Turning I took a hospital robe from a cart and covered her tits then pushed her back onto the bed and covered the bottom of her body.
Inside I was pissed and wanted to rip someone apart for how I had found her but I just sat there and waited for someone to show up which they did.
After I got the report from the doctor I put in my ten cents of what I found and how people should be treated.
He wasn’t amused with what I told him I found but I don’t expect him to care much either.

That evening my mother called screaming my father was dieing.
I am out the door and next door in a blink
My father was grasping the counter trying to stay up with my mother crying and freaking out next to him.
He has had the flu and I took him to the doctor just that day and he was told he had the flu and bronchitis.
He was prescribed medication and was told it would take a few days for them to kick in.

My parents being well into their 80’s any small incident to them is dieing.
My father is worse.
All the way back from the doctors he is telling me, “ I am dieing”
We all are I tell him but he says he is dieing now.

At home that day I laid out his medications and told them what to take and when.
Easy peazy for the average person but Greek immigrants are not average.

Antibiotics for the bronchitis once a day
Benadryl for his throat and the chest congestion 3 times a day
3 puffs from the inhaler 2 times a day
Pepto for his stomach
Tylenol 3 times a day.
Easy right?

My mother gives him 1 Tylenol for the whole day
Syrup once for the whole day
3 puffs from the wrong inhaler
Instead of pepto for his upset stomach she gives him Galveston, which does the opposite and traps all the gas in my father who is now bloating like the Pillsbury doughboy.

I call for an ambulance because he really thinks he is cashing in his chips.
I also called my brother to tell him the old man is in trouble but he said he was busy watching the Leafs game at the bar and would call my SIL to come down, no, I didn’t call her, he is his father.

Now I am pretty stressed out.
I haven’t really slept in days and all this hospital shit is getting to me.
The Paramedics got there quick and had set up shop next to my father in under ten minutes of my call,
It helps living 2 blocks away.

By the time my SIL showed up with my niece they had determined he OK to stay home and if things seemed worse they would rush right over.
That’s when she walked in and heard them say that.
She started saying our doctor was no good and they should take him to the hospital.
She went on to say her mother is a doctor and she took nursing classes and she believed my father should go to the hospital.

That’s about when I lost it.
First off, her mother is a psychiatrist or something like it.
Secondly, thinking about being a nurse isn’t the same as being one.
Thirdly my doctor through her out because she used to go to see him with 100 different ailments she found on the internet and had already decided what the doctor should do before he even looked at her.
Oh yeah, I went ballistic.

“Get the FUCK out of this house now you stupid BITCH”.
She went to say something.
‘Shut your fucken trap and get out”.
This is where the ambulance attendant, a young guy in his 20s though his balls had fully grown decided to step in.

He tells me to watch my language in front of my niece.
At that moment, language wasn’t an issue, my niece hears worse at home from her mother’s mouth and this was about my father not this bitch.
Walking towards her I pointed to the door and said in no muffed voice.”GET THE FUCK OUT RIGHT NOW”.

What does the attendant do?
He says “Shut up”.
I stopped half way down the hall and turn around.
I walked right back to him and in a calm voice said “Say it again”.
“Tell me to shut up in my house again”.
The female attendant knew he fucked up the first time.
Everything up until my SIL showed up was cordial but I guess he was mesmerized by her fake tits and didn’t see the real danger infront of him.
He walked away and the SIL beat it out the door leaving my niece behind.
She later told the male attendant her mother talks to much.
He came an apologized to me for stepping out of line before he left.
My SIL has yet to speak to me, WHOOOO HOOOO
My female friend got out of the hospital but two days later fell and fractured her knee after getting drunk when she found out she had cancer in her girly bits.
This is just a tiny bit of my life.
A 24 hour period to be exact.

Sigh, I need better pot

Have a nice weekend
