Digging a Hole

Feeling kind of Boris The Spider.

I’m fixing a hole where the rain gets in
And stops my mind from wandering
Where it will go

I’m filling the cracks that ran through the door
And kept my mind from wandering
Where it will go

And it really doesn’t matter if
I’m wrong I’m right
Where I belong I’m right
Where I belong
See the people standing there
Who disagree and never win
And wonder why they don’t get in my door

I’m painting my room in the colourful way
And when my mind is wandering
There I will go
Ooh ooh ooh ah ah
Hey, hey, hey, hey

And it really doesn’t matter if
I’m wrong I’m right
Where I belong I’m right
Where I belong
Silly people run around
They worry me and never ask me
Why they don’t get past my door

I’m taking the time for a number of things
That weren’t important yesterday
And I still go
Ooh ooh ooh ah ah

I’m fixing a hole where the rain gets in
Stops my mind from wandering
Where it will go oh
Where it will go oh

So I have my flaws one of which is being addicted to a certain type of reality television including Gold Rush and The Curse of Oak Island (been there, have the hat, yes I wear it during premiers just like my Mets Cap during playoff games). My advice to Marty is call Parker and say, “I want you to dig a hole.” Parker would chew on his toothpick and respond “How deep?”

Or he can get Rick.

Anyway, in North Lake where I will soon be to escape the Stars Hollow heat (being a Gilmore has perks) they have a law that only bodies of water unconstrained by artiface constitute a “Lake”, everything else is an Amelia. It is of course grandfathered because flood control is everywhere but because we were early adopters we’re labeled. With the additional 8′ it’s 98′ at its deepest and there’s a 12″ Bass that’s taken residence off our dock who is just as stupid as he is big since he’s already been caught 3 times. Not by me, I’m hopeless and believe in cooking what you kill. Emily’s beef is the neighbor with the seaplane is buying a bigger one.

We pity the people the next “Pond” over who have a flat bottomed 30′ bullldozed pit.

Newspaper brutally fact-checks Trump after he falsely claims his North Carolina golf course lake is the ‘world’s largest’

During a GOP fundraiser in a town that hosts one of his golf courses, Donald Trump claimed Lake Norman is “the largest man-made lake in the world” — and got brutally fact-checked by a local newspaper.

The Charlotte Observer reported Friday that Lake Norman, the ritzy lake and town located just north of the large banking city, is “by far” not the largest man-made lake in the world.

The reservoir managed by Duke Energy is the largest artificial lake entirely within the state’s borders, the report noted.

Though there is some disagreement about which of the world’s man-made lakes is the largest, NASA confirms that Lake Kariba, which runs on the border of Zambia and Zibabwe, is one of the largest at 2,150 square miles. Lake Norman, meanwhile, does not even make the top 10 in the world, the report noted.

The Observer added that Trump likely “thinks well” of Lake Norman because it’s home to one of his golf clubs — a fact he admitted in audio the newspaper acquired from the fundraiser.

“I actually have investments in Charlotte,” Trump said, adding that “fake news” will call his decision to attend fundraisers in an area where he does business “fake news.”

“You know where my club is, right?” the president asked the crowd at the Central Piedmont Community College on Friday afternoon. “Trump National. It’s a very big success on Lake Norman. Beautiful. Largest man-made lake in the world by far, right?
