The Forbidden Door

Good morning readers.  Thanks for coming by for a read this fine day. 

I know a lot of you are submerged in issues of who wants to be king and whatnot, and I appreciate you tearing yourself away from reading all that to come over here to read this, which isn’t.

But I’ll ask a favor of you insofar as what you contribute here commenting.  The blog’s a fortress against the intrusion of party politics.  I prefer not to delete any comment by readers here, but it is not and will not be a place for inserting cheers for people who want to be king.  It also won’t be used to assassinate the characters of politicos, except in bipartisan, general terms.  

Meanwhile.  We’ve been blessed here with three days in a row of cold and wet.  I was premature a few days ago telling you it was time to switch from felt to straw.  Likely you’ll want to chalk that up to me being no better at predicting the future and the weather than you are.

Switch back to felt and count yourself lucky you didn’t put them in mothballs yet if you didn’t.  If you’re like me you were probably folding up your Pendleton blankets and everything else the moths might feast on, wondering where you put those moth balls last year, when this last gasp of winter hit.

I’ve been spending the time when there were no embedded thunderstorms stalking the sky trying to narrow down what’s not happening.  I finally just decided to use TYC 6835 143 for the galactic center.  And Eltanin, in the constellation Draco, for the solar system vector.  Those, combined with what I’ve mentioned in recent, previous posts appear to take care of a lot of what’s needed to get a firm fix on what isn’t happening.

Today on Ask Old Jules:  Is Hiding Emotions Ethical?

Old Jules, is it ethical to mask your true emotions in order to get along with others? Is being honest in a relationship always the best policy?

  1. “The blog’s a fortress against the intrusion of party politics.”

    Thank you! One of the attractive features of your blog is it being grounded in reality. Another is the humor. For these reasons, it is my pleasure to stop by for a read. :)

  2. Those red buds are liars. They bloom making you think spring has sprung. Not quite.

    • Hi brushytophouse: Glad you visited. Here’s the mesquites not supposed to lie, but do. Pecans other places. Red buds are notoriously fickle. Gracias. J

  3. My hat collections is considerably smaller than yours, and my winter hiking hat was still in reach, right next to the ultralight I just bought. Good thing, because it rained pretty hard and cold on that last hike.

  4. Sounds like you getting the same rain and dreary weather I am. Just not fit outside for man nor beast ( cats) . They been laid up for two days now and I figer first rays of sunshine they going to be begging to get out and survey the territory.
    Most excitement they’ve had was when a robin flew head long into one of the reflective windows. :-(

    • Good morning Anonymoous. Likely they’ll let you know when they’re ready for you to change the weather. Mine are fairly certain I brought this in just to irritate them. Gracias, J

  5. My folk’s house is torn down the middle by “party lines.” As it always has been and forevermore, it will be The Kingston Trio vs. The Brothers Four.

  6. Something is goofy with the weather. We are having unusually warm temperatures in Minnesota. It got to 66 degrees today with more warm weather to come through the rest of the week. We are usually lucky if we reach 40 degrees this time of year. The jet stream has been pretty good to us this year, except that we are in a drought, and that scares me. On the other hand, I like to see the sun. Hope it warms up for you soon.

    • Hi Mary Ann. I’m obliged you came for a read. I surely agree drought is a way the weathermen get back at us for not buying whatever they’re advertising on their commercials. Likely it’s the economy causing the goofy weather. Gracias, Jules
