moved -- or just have fond memories of San Diego in the '40s, '50s and '60s.

November 4, 2016

It's gonna get dark real early starting Sunday, but at least it will be light when I go out in the morning to get my paper.  And I get to try to re-set my digital clocks by going forward 23 hours.

I was really looking forward to the end of the political ads on TV until I noticed a trickle of Christmas ads on the first day of November that will soon turn into a torrent.

If you thought the driver-less car was incredible, you won't believe the TV ad I saw for the latest in snobby razors -- the R89 Grande Safety Razor by Mühle of Germany.  Apparently you twist the handle, insert a double-edged razor blade, twist the handle back and get ready to shave.  They also make chrome-handled shaving brushes.  There's a deja vu quality about all of this.  Did I mention it's $75.00?   I'll stick with the bag of cheap plastic razors I buy at CVS. 

I hope you can read the caption on this Bizarro cartoon from last week.

More than a few folks thought my 1946 Halloween outfit looked like a Klansman in training.  That made me think about the white poncho giveaway at the Chicago White Sox baseball game played in Anaheim on July 3, 2014.  When folks pulled up their hoodies it looked like a Klan rally.

The Colts fell to Kearny 19-7 last Friday.  Today's 6:30 game against University City will be the last for Coach Michael Wright.  Meanwhile, down El Cajon Blvd, Coach Jimmy Morgans' Hoover team has been outscored this season 405-0.  The article in the Union-Tribune was upbeat actually -- focusing on three Cardinal players who hail from Myanmar.  Click HERE if you'd like to read the article.
