Seven Seventeen Seventeen

July 17, 2017 – 7-17-17 – Lots of sevens there, should be a lucky day for folks who dig that sort of thing.

Also on July 17th are:

Get Out of the Doghouse Day – it’s all about forgiveness, which is something we all need to be giving and getting from time to time. Via the official Get Out of the Doghouse Day website:

How To Celebrate Get Out of the Dog House Day
Have you sent someone to the doghouse recently? This day would be a nice time to forgive them of their wrongdoing and give them a chance. Talk to them and let them know that you still value them.
Has a spouse or friend or family member sent you there? Well today is the perfect time to reconnect with them and detach from technology. Take them out for coffee, make them a card, or pick them some flowers. Giving others a little bit of your time can show how much you care and that you do want to make it up to them. Get yourself out of that dog house!
If no one is in the dog house, it would still be a good day to take a friend on a walk, call a sibling, stop by to see your parents. Let them know how much joy they give your life.    MORE

National Tattoo Day – I have a few of those from my misspent young adulthood!

Yellow Pig Day – A Math holiday celebrating the fascinating number 17!

Wrong Way Corrigan Day! – One of my favorite stories of a clever aviator:

Corrigan was among the mechanics who had worked on Lindbergh’s Spirit of St. Louis aircraft, but that mere footnote in the history of flight was not enough for the Texas-born aviator. In 1938, he bought a 1929 Curtiss Robin aircraft off a trash heap, rebuilt it, and modified it for long-distance flight. In July 1938, Corrigan piloted the single-engine plane nonstop from California to New York. Although the transcontinental flight was far from unprecedented, Corrigan received national attention simply because the press was amazed that his rattletrap aircraft had survived the journey.

Almost immediately after arriving in New York, he filed plans for a transatlantic flight, but aviation authorities deemed it a suicide flight, and he was promptly denied. Instead, they would allow Corrigan to fly back to the West Coast, and on July 17 he took off from Floyd Bennett field, ostentatiously pointed west. However, a few minutes later, he made a 180-degree turn and vanished into a cloudbank to the puzzlement of a few onlookers.

Twenty-eight hours later, Corrigan landed his plane in Dublin, Ireland, stepped out of his plane, and exclaimed, “Just got in from New York. Where am I?” He claimed that he lost his direction in the clouds and that his compass had malfunctioned. The authorities didn’t buy the story and suspended his license, but Corrigan stuck to it to the amusement of the public on both sides of the Atlantic. By the time “Wrong Way” Corrigan and his crated plane returned to New York by ship, his license suspension had been lifted, he was a national celebrity, and a mob of autograph seekers met him on the gangway.

World Emoji Day – 🙂  Emojis are fun, so celebrate!  😉

David Hasselhoff‘s Birthday is July 17. Don’t Hassle the Hoff! I enjoyed him in Knight Rider and the Sharknado movies. BTW, Sharknado 5 is coming soon!

Phyllis Diller was born on July 17, 1917. She was funny.

John Jacob Astor was born on July 17, 1763. He founded an American empire.

July 17 is also my birthday. Yay, me. 


Sorry I have not been around much lately, I know I have missed my last two TrumpDays, but be assured that I still dearly love My President and support him completely. I have just been busy with the family at home, and, I also recently had a little mishap that left me with a part of my poor face getting put back together with surgical glue and butterfly stitches and I am getting cranky while waiting for it to heal. In other news, I go back to the dentist on Wednesday to finish up work on that tooth that went bad. I’ll be glad when that is over! Even when I am not blogging here, you can still find me on Fridays at my friend Peter’s place, Da Tech Guy Blog. My most recent post is here.

I hope you have a wonderful Monday. I still really do love you all.

You can never have too many exciting Trump memes…

#TrumpDay – Referendum Schmeferendum Edition

Huzzah! It’s TrumpDay again!

There was a special election in Georgia for Newt Gingrich’s old Congressional seat and it was supposed to be a “referendum” on the Presidency of My Donald where the leftist “Trump Slayer” carpetbagger propped up by Hollyweird would win as the media predicted he would and it would show everyone that President Trump can’t MAGA, but it didn’t quite work out that way. LOL

FoxNews morning crew with some analysis:


Democrats also lost in South Carolina last night.

Survey says: The kids are all right.

In case you missed it when it blew up in the dextrosphere last month, here is Chris Ray Gun with “Ain’t No Rest for the Triggered” (cuz it’s awesome):

This is sure to trigger some snowflakes – multiple Pepes doing the Peanuts Dance:

Until next time… Happy TrumpDay, y’all, MAGA!

#TrumpDay – Happy Birthday, Mr. President Edition

Today is not just another TrumpDay, it is also President Trump’s birthday, yay!

If you are looking for stuff about that shooting this morning (which was committed by a leftist, BTW), I suggest you visit America’s Last REAL Reporter, Stacy McCain.

I prefer to keep things light hearted when I can on TrumpDays, so here is a lovely family wishing My Donald a Happy Birthday:

Today is the 242nd birthday of the Army:

Today is also Flag Day:

A joyous celebration in India for President Trump’s birthday:

#TrumpDay – Bard Edition

MAGA and Shadilay, dear friends, TrumpDay is upon us once again!

Shakespeare in the Park has caught a homicidal strain of TDS.

Aussie anti-Trump antifa goons get their asses handed to them.

Daily Pundit shares a poem from American Digest:

I SAW the second-best minds of my not-so-Great Generation destroyed by Trump Derangement Syndrome, pasty, paunchy, tenured, and not looking too sharp naked,


with the absolute loss of political significance butchered out of their own body politic good to lose a thousand years.


ICYMI: Almost Too Much Schadenfreude

Don Surber uses the precise and correct word to describe the so-called #resistance.

Trump supporters send a commie running from her own town hall.

Melania is still lovely.

Today’s post is short, I know. I had my once every six month endocrinologist appointment today and not only was it a long drive, but the awful harpies of The View were on the waiting room tv while I was there and all the hatred from those awful “ladies” has me feeling tired. The blatant ignorance and willful dishonesty of celebrity TDSers is tiring. Endo visit was routine, and the nurse enjoyed my explanation for the high blood pressure reading she got (she also loathes The View).

Ciao for now. Happy TrumpDay, y’all, MAGA!

Thank You

I spent my morning at the dentist today for my broken tooth, the visit made possible by some kind and generous readers, and I now have some temporary filling action going on where there had been sharp jagged edged painful holes.

The dentist thinks I may be able to keep the tooth and avoid root canal, but because so much of the tooth is gone, permanent fillings aren’t possible and I’ll need a crown after they build the tooth back up.

It definitely feels better right now than it has in a long time and I’ll be able to (carefully) chew on that side again. I go back in about two weeks so they can start working on it, and a few weeks after that it will be crown time.

Now there is time to see if I can qualify for one of those dental loans that they do now to finance the thing.

Thank you to everyone who helped, prayed, and/or offered some kind words to me. I love you all.

#TrumpDay – #Covfefe Edition

Salutations and shadilay! On this glorious TrumpDay, our President has gifted us with a new meme, #covfefe.

Honey Badger don’t care:

Smart puppy:

Covfefe explained in images:

Text accompanying above video on YouTube:

Published on May 31, 2017–I thank Covfefe for creating this beautiful song, way ahead of the curve there pal.
Hello all thanks for clicking on my video. As you will learn, Covfefe is a divine word, one which should never be uttered from any lips other than those of the God-Emperor Trump. Covfefe is a sign of the blessings of Kek and it is an ancient and highly esoteric prayer word to signify balance with Kek and the living earth, or terra firma. With the guidance of Kek and the leadership of Donald, America shall now conquer the world. If you aren’t American, I feel sorry for you. We have several thousand nuclear waheads and the premier military force in the history of mankind..and we’re feeling a wee’ bit crazy right now. So strap on in and get ready for the ride, the Century is just getting started.

My Donald has returned from bringing MAGA to the World, but Melania has the glory. More Melania.

Kathy Griffin is gross, mean, and stupid, but she fits right in at CNN, despite Anderson Cooper’s being “apalled” over Griffin’s dumbassery.

OK, friends, I hope you enjoyed the videos and the links, and that the rest of your week is fabulous. Happy TrumpDay, y’all, MAGA!

I need some help to get some bad teeth pulled.

A Little Help, Please?

Ever since I died & came back, I have been avoiding discussing my health and trying to stay out of medical offices, because I hate doctors now and I’ve come to accept a certain level of pain and misery as part of my every day existence.

But there are some things I can’t ignore, like the persistent cellulitis infection I’ve had in my left earlobe that multiple rounds of strong antibiotics since the fall, over and over again, just won’t kill so I keep going back to urgent care for it just to get it to calm down but knowing that I’m ruining my kidneys with the medicine and knowing that as soon as the scripts are finished my ear will blow up again and bring with it fever, chills, serious fatigue, and more body aches on top of my usual pain from nerve damage (leftover from the Lyme and other tick diseases I spent so many years in treatment for). What really drives me nuts about the ear thing is that it itches like crazy, before it gets so bad that it becomes a deep pain. Urgent Care is out of ideas and have suggested I go to the ER to try to get IV antibiotics and to see a plastic surgeon to see if maybe they can dig the infection out. Both ideas fill me with all kinds of anxiety. I wonder if anyone reading this might have better ideas?

The other thing I can no longer ignore is this damned toothache that has been bothering me for a while. It’s on the same side as the bad ear and comes from some broken molars that used to have fillings until a few years ago. It used to be my “chewing side” since you all helped me get some teeth pulled on the upper right side two years ago. So now I try chewing on the missing teeth side but that hasn’t stopped the broken tooth side from hurting and now it is becoming unbearable. I suspect they can’t be saved and will need to come out and it is scary because dental surgery is always risky for people with Addison’s Disease. I have always been prone to the types of abscesses that require serious care, but because I have to take steroids daily for the Addison’s my immune system is compromised so these bacterial infections are more of a recurring issue.

I never thought I would wish for dentures, but they would probably make my life easier at this point.

I hate to ask, after you all have been so kind to me over the years, but I’d really like to get a handle on the dental stuff before it gets worse and I end up really sick again, so I’m asking anyway, if you can spare it, please help a blogger out.

I don’t like talking about or thinking about my health, I guess I’m all burnt out on it after so many years in a medical nightmare before my near death experience, which had seemed to actually help some things, and I’ve been treated so badly by the local Emergency Rooms where they are clueless about my condition despite always having my medical records, that I have let my anxiety get the best of me but I don’t think I can put off the stupid toothache much longer because it is becoming disruptive and I don’t want it to get dangerous. Unfortunately, I don’t have comprehensive dental coverage and I’ll need to pay the dentist or oral surgeon at any appointments I make, and I just don’t have that kind of funding available. Hence this bleg.

I don’t want to become a bore again, so I will try to avoid discussing my health junk again except to thank people if they can help, but I’ll be linking this post at the end of my regular posts, for a while.

Thanks for reading, and helping if you can.

#TrumpDay – #MAGA to the World Edition

Rejoice! TrumpDay is upon us, Shadilay!

This week, My Donald, accompanied by our lovely First Lady and First Daughter, is reminding the world what real American strength and leadership looks like.
He made us proud in Saudi Arabia.
Then my President went to Israel, and he also undid the Obama policy which pretended that Jerusalem isn’t in Israel.
After that, he went to the Vatican and met with Pope Francis.
Next, to Brussels, for meetings with NATO, the EU, and France’s new president – and euroweenie leftists are all kinds of triggered about it.

Our own triggered snowflakes continue their demonstrations of organized manufactured outrage.

Here is a neat song parody, poking fun at SJW commies:

Russia! Russia! Russia! In this short video, a MAGA man attempts to educate some dumbasses:

That’s it for me for now. I hope you’ll check out the links and enjoy the rest of the week.

Happy TrumpDay, y’all, MAGA!

#TrumpDay – Nontroversy Nonsense Edition

Guess what day it is? OK, I gave it away in the title, yep, it is TrumpDay!

Another week halfway down and another batch of lies from the leftist media. They just make crap up and the snowflakes set their hair on fire and run off to riot “protest” with whatever the “scandal” of the day is, and then the lying media reports on THAT as if it were relevant. Are any normal people even still paying attention to this garbage?

Bill Quick doesn’t care:

This whole Trump Derangement Syndrome noise machine is, at least for me, finally subsiding into little more than a dull and inchoate roar slowly fading away in the background.  Apparently there will be a new TDS hair-on-fire moment every three days or so for the next seven years of Trump’s presidency.

I think that more and more people are simply tuning it out.  None of this crap is the sort of end-of-the-world stuff we are being told it is.  And as that becomes more and more obvious, it will become easier and easier to ignore.

I suggest ignoring this, as well.

Mike Hendrix has some thoughts about America’s sore losers:

Having been spited and thwarted—some of them for the first time in their lives—by people they hate, despise, and fear, these reasonable, tolerant, freedom-loving folks immediately turned to rioting, looting, smashing, burning, and other acts of random violence. They have repeatedly demonstrated their intention to implement a semi-soft coup and negate the results of a legitimate national election by manufacturing absurd scandals, hogtying Trump himself by any means they can concoct, intimidating and even assaulting Trump supporters and Republican elected officials whenever they get the chance, resisting or defying laws and executive orders, and generally carrying on as if the election had never taken place—more accurately, as if they had won rather than lost.

Sadly, it’s not entirely unreasonable of them to expect this, because Republicans themselves went along with it for years, acting as if they’d lost whenever they managed to win. No wonder they’re completely gobsmacked; against all expectations, they have a guy in the White House who seems to have meant what he said, and is acting on it, and doesn’t seem in the least ashamed of himself for harboring such otherworldly notions. Why, it’s indecent—damned near unprecedented!

They are crazy as shithouse rats; they are used to having things their own way with little to no serious resistance; they are juvenile in both outlook and action; their political leaders enjoy their power and perks, and have no intention of surrendering them even temporarily, to any degree at all, without a fight.


Notice that I haven’t even mentioned what the supposed terrible, awful, no good, rotten, meaniepants, unpresidential thing My Donald is alleged to have done this time, because I am really not paying much attention to all that bullshit these days since it is all just made up by commies and malcontents anyway and has no basis in reality or actual fact – so why bother?

Dumbasses whining in the streets continues unabated:

Is anyone else experiencing protest fatigue? I predict the endless protests will succeed in making normal people treat these demonstrations the way people who live near airports treat plane noise: they will eventually be ignored to the point where they won’t even be noticed at all anymore.

Except for when they get in the way, and there is still only one appropriate way to handle that situation.

Worse than TDS! Diogenes diagnoses a severe mental affliction:

Media Suffers From ‘Trump Unacceptance and Resistance Disorder’ (TURD)

Russia! Russia! Russia!  Actually, it was a Democrat operative who did the wikileaking on the DNC – and then he got killed. Another floater for the Clinton Dead Pool, probably.

Russia! Russia! Russia! The left lerves the rooskies again. For the moment.

MOTUS on leakers and plumbers, and leftist liars.

The #NeverTrump morons of the GOP are still assholes.

Shadilay! Marching MAGA Kekistanis troll SJWs with a bullhorn in Boston:


Stacy McCain doesn’t say it, but I suspect he still wants that embassy job in Vanuatu since he’s now offering free advice to President Trump.

I hope you enjoy the links, and the rest of the week. Happy TrumpDay, y’all, MAGA!
