Howardism Musings from my Awakening Dementia
My collected thoughts flamed by hubris

Growing up, we had a junk drawer. It was always full, and full of all sorts of interesting things that never seemed to get used. My wife had one growing up as well, and I understand most people do. I've also heard that many people have junk rooms … that's right, an entire room devoted to stuff that doesn't belong anywhere else.

Well, in trying to categorize my thoughts, I'm amazed that most of these don't fit into any category… hence this "junk folder".
