“Sometime I wish the aliens would abduct me and crown me as their leader.”

Today is a delight. The sun is in all its glory framed by a blue sky with a few puffy clouds. Today is flannel shirt weather at 41˚. I went out on the deck with the dogs, did a little trash clean-up and watched Nala run the yard with a bone in her mouth. Both dogs have been in and out all morning.

Last night I spent quite a while with Jack. I had my iPad and tapped that with one hand while I scratched and patted Jack with the other. After quite a while of non-stop pats, I think Jack got bored. He decided to lie down on the other end of the bed. I then cleaned the litter box and left Jack asleep. He was purring the whole time.

Yesterday I went to the dump. My trunk was so filled with trash I had trouble closing it. The backseat was filled with boxes, newspaper and cans.

I am watching the worst movie, Battle of Los Angeles. Aliens have attacked the city for the second time since 1942, their first assault. I haven’t seen an alien, but I have seen their small fighter ships taken down by hand guns belonging to seven soldiers, the entire cast aside from the dead soldiers, all killed in dramatic fashion. The heroine with a katana sword jumped off a building, landed on the scout ship and thrust the sword through the top, thus disabling the ship which subsequently blew up. She is from a secret defense group with underground headquarters. I do not know a single actor. I did recognize a stolen line from Independents Day, ” I got to get me one of those.”

When I was a kid, I loved science fiction books and black and white science fiction movies and serials on TV like Buck Rogers and Gene Autry’s The Phantom Empire from 1938. I watched every episode on Saturday mornings. I always figured there were aliens and some lived among us. I’m thinking of a neighbor who used to live down the street.

    Are you sure they haven’t abducted you? I have that same thought. Sometimes I wish they would if they were good aliens. I’m glad you had a delightful day. Reminded me of this song, which is not a favorite of mine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wu1UXCdyNo0

    As a child, I was sure I was an alien and I was waiting for the ship to take me “home”. It never arrived.

    Lori and the gang.

      I miss the connection between daytime sexual encounters and spacemen.

      There are actually many movies with good aliens, but they just aren’t as exciting as evil aliens destroying the world. How about ET, Close Encounters, The Day the Earth Stood Still, Superman ad Paul to name a few.

      I never thought I’d be take away but I wanted to meet an alien.

    Sounds like Jack is adjusting.
    He’s getting bored with you!
    SciFi……the original Star Trek, War of the Worlds and Ray Bradbury are all I got.

      He did the something last night. He purred the whole time then got on the table to lie down.

      I like all your science fiction, but there are also many more you might like.
