When the Looting Starts

My friend, El Bandolero, has posted about President Trump’s recent tweet on his blog. I mean, Bandolero posted about it on his blog. The President didn’t post a tweet on Bandolero’s Blog. His post, When the Looting Starts, is, as always, inciteful. Whoa! I mean, insightful. Wow! That would be an unfortunate turn of words. There’s a name for that. Two words that sound the same but are spelled differently and, of course, have different, and sometimes very very different, meanings, with potentially unfortunate, if not disastrous, consequences if a person can’t distinguish the intended word from the context in which it is used. Anyway, I wanted to give a shout out to Bandolero.

WordPress App

I just published a new post in Chappell Family Blog, using Chrome on cell phone. They snuck in some plugs about the WordPress app. I had previously thought about giving it a spin, so went ahead and installed it and here I am. So far, so good, and preferable to browser. We’ll see if the honeymoon lasts.

So, here’s a section of my driveway a couple days ago.

We were having balmy weather and the abundance of green on concrete was hard not to notice. I assume it’s some sort of mildew or algae or whatever, besides the vegetation growing through the cracks. It was like 65° at the time. Now it’s like 35° with an overnight freeze warning. Damn global warming!

And here is my wife’s little flower garden at the mailbox. Pretty colorful.

I guess I could’ve cropped out the curb, but for whatever reason I liked the concept of the flowers hanging over to the street.

Okay, let’s see how this app does with the publishing end of posting. So far, text and images have been easy.

Danged Ads

I don’t visit my own blog very often. It had been a few months, actually, since the last time I dropped by here. Holy cow! I’ve been overrun with ads, commercials, all sorts of junk I didn’t put here! I’m going to have to reconsider this account, I think.

Edit: Interestingly, after I posted this post and looked at the blog again all those freakin’ ads were gone! I don’t know what’s going on.

Edit Edit: Hmm, so this time I saw a box saying some viewers might see an ad in it. But, the first time I looked, there were two ads in it, as well as two more ads in the sidebar! Obviously, I should pay more attention to this blog.
