Fun on Friday

Did you hear what President Trump did to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi? He grounded her airplane — 40 minutes before she was supposed to take off on a big excursion.

Whether you love Trump or hate him, you have to admit he’s the greatest troll to ever occupy the Oval Office.

How are you weathering the great government shutdown of 2018?

We’re in day seven now. It’s been tough here in Lexington. I’m pretty sure I saw some kid setting up an unauthorized lemonade stand. I’m not sure we will survive the plague that’s sure to follow without the FDA to put a lid on such things.

Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer is my favorite Christmas special. And Yukon Cornelious is one of my favorite characters in the show. I mean what’s not to like, right? He’s a man’s man. He openly carries a gun. He travels with cornmeal and gunpowder and ham hocks and guitar strings. And he’s always on the lookout for silver and gold.

Smart guy!

Bling isn’t really my thing. But a lot of people enjoy sporting gold jewelry. Well, a 36-year-old businessman in Vietnam takes bling to a whole new level.

Tran Ngoc Phuc wears a total of 13kg of gold wherever he goes. If you don’t have your kilograms to pounds calculator handy, that about 28.7 pounds of gold.

Every morning, I get up and peruse the latest gold news. As part of that process, I just Google the word “gold.” I find a lot of useful articles that way. But I also have to filter through a lot of extraneous stuff – headlines like “Australian Bicycle Team Wins Gold Medal.” Anyway, I generally just scroll past that stuff. But as you can imagine, if it’s a big story, I end up seeing the headline over and over again. And sometimes, I click out of morbid curiosity.

That happened today. Over the last couple of days, I kept seeing headlines about how somebody has figured out how to melt gold at room temperature. At first, I thought, eh, I don’t really care. But after seeing the headline for the 894th time, I clicked.

Well, today is Black Friday.

Since 2005, the day after Thanksgiving has marked the busiest shopping day of the year. I know a lot of people who treat today like a holiday. They even have Black Friday traditions. I actually have some friends who meet at 3 a.m. on Black Friday for breakfast and then hit the sales.

A few months ago, during a major downpour, I noticed water drip, drip, dripping onto the floor of my guest bedroom. I put a bucket under it and climbed into the attic, horror clawing at the edges of my mind. Was I about to need a new roof?

If you’re a homeowner, you probably share my dread of the roof going bad. It’s generally one of the highest home-repair cost you will ever encounter. It can run you over $10,000 just to replace a modest size roof.

Now, imagine if your roof was made out of gold.
