Monthly Weigh-in 07/29/2018 = 205lbs; to Gnome me is to love me

Another loving gift from my Daughter and Granddaughter; I'd like to welcome the "Mutha Fuggin' Grandpa Gnome" to the front garden.

I'm down to 205lbs, which pretty much is on schedule; losing a pound a week is a reasonable goal;  I had secretly hoped to do much better ... short of having liposuction I guess this is the best I can do ... basically trying to eat high protein and stay around 2,000 calories a day.

Down 20lbs total so far.  Historically, when I get down to around 200lbs (where I hope to be at the end of August) I begin to forget why I was dieting and the weight starts creeping back up.  I am mentally preparing to get my weight down to a cyclic range of between 165lbs and 185lbs.  We shall see ...

Miles and months yet to go ...

Rahm Emanuel’s Chicago is the #1 City in the entire USA for RATS!

"WHAAA ...?  CHICAGO?  You're fuggin' kiddin' me ..."

Yessiree, rats prefer Chicago over any other city in the entire USA!  Especially considering the huge human population difference, when it comes to RATS, Chicago beats the ever loving living hell out of New York City!  Perhaps the cultural diversity of NYC has an impact on rat populations ...

Rats in Chicago are even registered to vote and often win high political office.

"IN YOUR FACE NEW YORK CITY!  BOOYA!    Freakin' amateurs … "

An old worn-out family photo
18-year-old Mom is on the left, 17-year-old Dad is on the right.

My older brother (by two-years) is the newborn in the middle.  
Yesterday he attended his 50-year high school graduation class reunion up here in the north.

Tempus fugit.

From the Lizzy Borden chapter of How to Make Political Insanity Work for YOU!

Rand Paul mentioned the following, publicly, at an event in Leitchfield, Kentucky, on Monday.

"Capitol Police have issued an arrest warrant for a man who threatened to kill me and chop up my family with an axe," Paul said. "It's just horrendous that we have to deal with things like this."

Capitol Police declined to comment because the investigation is ongoing.


Good Heaven ...
