Exaggerated Claims

We all know flies are attracted to horse pucky, which made me think of the exaggerated claims out there in Websville.

Don't you just love it when online ads, or any ads for that matter, promise a six figure income only working 10 hours a week! The only thing that took me 10 hours a week to do was count the dead flies in the corner of my living room.

It's not that I'm a bad housekeeper or anything. Those pesky little things are dormant when the weather gets cool and then come to life as it gets warmer. They're gone now; it's 83 degrees outside and they were either eaten in flight by the cat or they went outside on their own.

In any case, I still haven't figured out how to make a six figure income working 10 hours a week...flies or no flies.

Horse Pucky Explained

All righty then, to your left we have horse pucky or horse manure. Pucky is also called that other four letter word that begins with an "s" and ends with a "t" but is too crass to mention in polite company.

When properly cured, pucky is great for your garden and indoor plants. It's also symbolizes the state of our nation and all the people in our nation who are full pucky, which is the real reason I've started this blog.

I like people who say it like it is. No nonsense, just the real deal. No tippy-toeing around the issues for me. Walking on eggshells to avoid honest conversation is uncomfortable and a drag. It makes me impatient waiting for the real communication to start. Sorry, I guess I'm not great at small talk.

There's an awful lot of pucky flying around these days. Of course when it lands I guess I need to think of it as cultivating my garden of patience...or is that it's impatiens, those herbal, saccate flowers with dehiscent capsules. See what I mean.
