The Advantages of Good Living

Or "Tornado Chasing for Dummies - The Two Dogs Way!"

First, go out into your front yard. Second, do not shit in your pants, because you are a good person that lives your life right and G-d will not let anything bad happen to you simply because you live your life right.

Today, it started raining and we needed it. The pollen was so damn thick, the air was like breathing through a pound cake. (Ha, I said "pound cake.")

I heard the pine cones hitting the roof and walked outside just in time to watch this tree come crashing down. Trees were falling like the truth in a Democrat Presidential primary.

The brick column is on my front porch.


The tree is about a foot and a half in diameter.


It missed my house by mere inches. The tree that is still standing is literally six feet from the eave of my house.


The hail was the size of regular marbles and I had just pulled my truck into the carport one minute before it started falling. Trust me, hail hurts like....well, you know.
