I’ll Have A Shake, Please

Karen flew out to the west coast yesterday, so I’m here at home alone. At 5:35 this morning, someone grabbed hold of my bed and started shaking it back and forth violently. It woke me up, I looked to see who it was, nobody was in the room and the bed continued to shake.

It is a somewhat disturbing thing to wake up from a deep sleep and discover that you are riding a bucking bed in an empty room.

I immediately reached the rational conclusion that the bed was possessed… or the house was possessed… or the house was being repossessed by the mortgage company. Space aliens perhaps trying to scoop me up in their tractor beam? The second coming… was I having trouble getting off the ground?

Nope, it was an earthquake… a 5.4 earthquake somewhere to the east of us. Go figure, my wife is in California enjoying nice weather and I’m here in Indiana riding out an earthquake.

I think it was a shifting of the time zone plates in Indiana. You are so messed up with your time zones. I hope no sock creatures were injured in the shake up…

Doug Jones

oh… the transition to digital painting looks complete to me!

Dennis Jones

…I have been hoping to transition from Padawan Learner to Jedi Digital Knight, but am not sure how strong the force is with me yet…

Dennis Jones

…11:15 Eastern time… we just had another shake… this is getting interesting…

…a 4.2 on the aftershock…

put some chocolate in a glass of milk, set it on the counter and wait a while….

ARRR…matey! Shake and bake!

Don Jones

Enjoy those tremors and stabilize everything that is important to you. That would be your coffee pot, your new digital tablet, and the beloved Sears Craftsmen mower.

Well, if there’s one thing I don’t mind outsourcing from California it’s our earthquakes!

…uhm, a little Brother Jones Helpful Hint for everybody… when your wife is out of town and you go to the grocery store to buy yourself something fun and exotic to eat, don’t get the Kroger battered minced fish… definitely not the wisest move you can make… the “minced” in the title should be your first clue that this is a questionable item at best…

Don Jones

I think minced means “blenderized” and then shaped back into fish patties.

Dennis Jones

…it kinda had huge mystery chunks in it… not the smooth, blenderized texture I was hoping for…

it’s hard to beat a Hebrew National Hot Dog…
