Day By Day


  • Kafiroon

    Don’t mind me, Ladies, just looking for a contact down here.

    Reminds me of being on the airport floor behind a ticket counter fixing new power lines, while several short skirted “ladies” knowingly perched on there high stools.
    They giggled and talked and I took my sweet time.

    Sammy, you are a smart engineer
    But DAMN, woman, how frapping stupid, can you really be?
    This is stupid, dialed to 13….

    • John Trauger

      It’s garbage in, garbage out processing. Sam has let her affection and concern for Skye cloud how she actually sees Skye.

      It’s a very human failing.

      This is also the mechanism by which Liberals (nearly all politicians, really), televangelists, lawyers and publicists all work. We can accept an idea that would never pass muster with our thinking machinery if it is sugarcoated in the right emotion.

  • WayneM

    It’s a fairly common bias… We want to see the best in people who are closest to us…

    • JackDeth 72

      Sibling rivalry, puberty, bad choices…..

      What could possibly go wrong?!

  • As time goes by, we shall see.

    • Epador

      it doesn’t take much to see that the problems of three little people don’t amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world. Someday you’ll understand that.

      • Spin Drift

        “Play it Sam, play it again”

        As time goes by….

  • Deplorable B Woodman

    Completely changed…….what? Skye became a lizard?

    Seriously, turning thirteen, becoming a teenager, all those hormones turning on, yes, one completely changes. Some (Sam) just manage it better than others.
    Someday, over a tall cold one and a cigar, ask me how I know. I think we could all tell our own variations on the same tale.

    raise 2 teen age girls and when the ( boy crazy ) stage kicks in around 11-13 years old…damn, i scared away many droolers.
    but then having that gun cabinet with glass in the front showing AK and FAL rifles with mags locked in them about 3 feet from their bedroom was a big help also.

    • my dad used to meet the new boyfriend just short of re-assembling the Garand. if the guy said “hey, nice rifle” then he was probably a good guy. if he acted scared, then he was up to no good and my dad would show him how the bayonet attaches..

      • Mine was an AK, or my 870.

      • Too Tall

        Warhorse (for your dad):

        I love it when a plan comes together.

  • D Evans

    Doing what comes naturally.

  • JTC

    Nice sepia toning and filter work, CM.

    • NotYetInACamp

      He’s having fun. I liked his desert sand the other day.

  • Pamela

    Their Father dies at a critical age. Skye goes down a path looking for a replacement and her life is irrevocably changed forever.

  • Alex J

    Or could it be:

    “Ya can’t always get what you want. But you might just get what you need.”

  • Big Jim

    Skye’s life was forever changed, but maybe not forever irrevocably ruined. My father shot himself when I was 9 years old. That forever changed my and my family’s lives, but it didn’t ruin or destroy us.
