Ravings of a Mad Man: vol. 2.39
It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid then open it and remove all doubt
July 13th came, Friday the 13th, excuse me, and went and I am still here. So I've got that going for me. Nothing really unusual happened on Friday the 13th. But the most unusual thing that happened was when we went camping in Butterfield canyon. The animals were acting very out-of-the-ordinary that night. Particularly, a deer and a domestic black cat. Arriving at the camp site, we began to prepare for the evening with fire building, tent set-up and other such things. Danny and I went to find fire wood sufficient for a fire that would last throughout the night. By 11:00 we realized we didn't have enough so we had to get more. We enjoyed a meal of hot dogs, Doritos and homemade ice cream with cobbler. Let's just say the tastebuds were in a state of nirvana. Not the band, the actual state of nirvana. Look it up, its in the dictionary. While hanging out by the fire, we heard some rustling and twigs cracking nearby and I thought to myself, "someone must be trying to sneak up on us and steal our gold!" So I told Jenny to turn on the flashlight and point it in that direction and Danny squealed like a schoolgirl when the light shone upon a young deer not more than 10 feet away from us. The deer would not leave us alone after that. Jenny snuck up on it to get a close picture and those pictures will be posted on her blog. After the deer left, with a little help from Danny, we heard a slight animal call and thinking it was the deer crying, Jenny shined the light in the direction of the animal call. It was a domestic black cat. We then determined that we must be camping on a pet cemetery due to the unusual nature of the animals and the black cat could quite possibly have been Jenny's old pet Hazel, RIP.
Trivia Time: Last week's winners were Danny and Jenny they both knew that Friday the 13th is truly a scary day. It is the day I got engaged to be married last year. This week's question is: How much faster does a piece of paper fall from a 20-ft. drop than a brick would fall from the same height? The prize is a framed picture of me and my siblings when we were younger. Recommendations: I recommend that you watch VH1's World Series of Pop Culture. You will get the perfect combo of movies & music while learning all at the same time.
