Bittermac and the blustery day.

26 Oct

Kind of like an edgier Winnie the Pooh.

And who doesn’t love Pooh?

Pooh was the shit when I was little.

Sunday night, dinner, bath, footie jammies, and then lay in front of the tv and watch Pooh get his big ass stuck in a hole.


Few things in life are that basic and innocent.

And that whole phrase “Innocence lost” is kind of a tough one to get, right up until someone asks you, “When was the last time you watched Winnie the Pooh and the blustery day”?

And then it makes sense.

Having kids is a great excuse to watch.

But what do you do when your kids grow up?

Now you have no excuse.

And Winnie is the epitome of the simple mind having a simple life.

No brains, no headaches.

In fact, he is so uncomplicated that he was used as the example of Taoism. (In a really simplistic nutshell, living an uncomplicated life.)

I read the book 25 years ago, but the tagline of the book is incredible and has stayed with me throughout the years.

“While Eeyore frets …
… and Piglet hesitates
… and Rabbit calculates
… and Owl pontificates
…Pooh just is.”

I try not to get too weepy touchie feelie here, this is just a crude little blog after all, but this is one of those phrases that you can read a few times and come up with something more each time.

I honestly miss those nights in front of the tv in my jammies.

Walt Disney was the MAN back in the day.

What started as a grainy black and white cartoon of Steamboat Willie, has become the worldwide giant of DISNEY.

The Mouse is powerful.

Do NOT anger the Mouse.

No more on that subject, A) Not looking to offend the Mouse. and B) Some of the Mouse’s minions are blog fans.

All good here.

I am glad Disneyland moved away from the ticket books.

Pay your entry fee and your done, its all inclusive after that.

Where as, with the tickets, you never had enough E tickets, and you always threw away a lot of A tickets because they never got used.

They should make it like a cruise, include the food as well.

Speaking of cruises, Disney does a cruise now too.

And if my kids were young enough, I would book it today, and I don’t even know what they do on these cruises.

The brand name is that strong.

And who doesn’t love that?

Knott’s Berry Farm, thats who.

    Took the kids last weekend, first trip in four years. Walt was a genius, and not in a bad way.
