Nasal barrage

The backyard maple is greening up, along with pretty much everything else.

Here at El Rancho Pendejo we are spared the cruise missiles but not the snot rockets. Faugh, sneeeerk, hyeeeeenk, auuuughhhhh, hoccccccccck, ptui, etc.

The apple tree next to the garage.

The incoming includes mulberry, ash, juniper, cottonwood and sycamore, fueled by red-flag winds. I haven’t been on the bike since Wednesday. So, yeah. Not bombed, but bummed.

And taking drugs, which I used to enjoy. But these ones are boring. You don’t get to talk to God but at least you can breathe through your nose.

Maybe we should drop a shitload of mulberry bombs around old Bashar’s secure location. If he’s honking his beezer 24/7 he might not feel chipper enough to get medieval on folks.

The wisteria bracketing the front door.

    Beautiful pics, P’OG! 4 inches of snow here in Black Forest (by Bibleburg) and currently 28 degrees. No allergy problems today though! 🙂

    Also no outdoor riding! 😦

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      Thanks, JD. No snow here, but temps in the 30s and a brisk wind. After the drugs and sun get busy I may sneak out for a short spin. I’ll pay for it later, but what the hell? More drugs!

        Hey JD, are coming you coming to the Ruta del Rancho Pandejo in June?

        No riding for me today, but going out with our tandem riding friends tomorrow for 25 miles or so.

        • JD Dallager Says:

          Pat, P’OG and fellow Mad Doggers. I must regret on the June Ruta……helping family move. Let’s call this The Inaugural and plan, if P’OG and Herself survive this one, to mebbe do some more in the future.

    Whatever happened to the daze when folks moved to these desert places to get away from all the pollens and such?
    Can’t complain about the weather here in Sicily though the sea is currently churned up quite a bit for some reason – probably like Orange Hitler’s gut when he thinks about the Comey book or his lawyers or the pee tape?

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      Man, those days are long gone. Bibleburg (the honky version, anyway) was founded as a resort, billed as Eden for the consumptive, and just look at it now.

      As for the Duke City, it’s been a trade center forever. Mostly we trade gunfire and Kleenex here now.

      When they moved out here, they brought all the plants and trees they were allergic to with them. Add that to the native ragweed and junipers, along with winds and low humidity, and they turned Tucson into the worse city in the country for allergies. Used to be the best.

      I’d pay a dollar to see the pee tape. Wonder when Vlad will turn that loose? Probably called the dumpster on a burner cell phone and told him you launch one more missile that pee tape will be on Youtube in the morning.

        I think Orange Hitler and Pooty-poot are still BFF’s. The “your tax dollars at work” turned out to be little more than a fireworks show as OG gave Pooty and Co plenty of heads up.
        “Vlad, I’m under serious pressure here in the USA to act like I care about the Syrian people, so I’m gonna fire off a few missiles to make it look good and distract the rubes from all my other troubles here. I know you’ll understand buddy!”
        I’m glad the Italians have stayed out of it, so the NATO base not-too-far north of us won’t be getting blown up anytime soon.

    Gorgeous blossoms and wisteria!
    Waiting for daffodils and tulips and still waiting for the last snowbank at the top of the driveway to melt. A wintry mix tonight! My allergies will just kick in late this season. Neighbors moved to Arizona (many) decades ago for the dry heat to help his chronic autoimmune illnesses. He was able to benefit, also from the ability to go into a backyard pool year-round. He was in his 30’s and had been on crutches for years. He was able to own and run a very small retail shop. A former co-worker’s brother died of asthma/complications in Arizona. He had lived there for decades but the poor air quality caught up with him.
