2020 KNOCKING ON THE DOOR

STEP BY STEP, INCH BY INCH the New Year approaches and many look forward to setting goals for advancements in their own lives to attempt to accomplish within the new year.

For you that are taking notes, the year Tubularsock is pointing to is 2020!

Yet for Tubularsock the thought of WHAT COULD TUBULARSOCK DO to send us into the new year with joy and thankfulness?

SO HERE’S THE PLAN.

The first step is for Tubularsock to leave his top floor corner office in the underground bunker overlooking Washington, D.C. from Oakland, CA (see Bunker Tour) and proceed with his trusty camera to an isolated cliff.

Perhaps in a National Park that Trump and his grafters and running dogs have been attempting to destroy.

But really a very high and dangerous cliff is all Tubularsock needs.

And then finally using Tubularsock’s camera and the vanity of his “models” Tubularsock will set to work to bring true happiness INTO the New Year.

Could anyone ask for a better New Year 2020 than that?

“Should old acquaintances be forgotten,

And never brought to mind?


Should old acquaintances be forgotten,


And days of long ago!

Chorus: 
For times gone by, my dear

For times gone by,

We will take a cup of kindness yet

For times gone by . . .

And we’ll tak a right guid willie-waught
For auld lang syne!”

A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU FROM TUBULARSOCK!

    although, I’ll take the cup. Happy New Year.

    New Year’s resolution: find a cliff and learn to operate a camera. Find as many models as possible.

    What do I owe you, Tubes?

    Bonne et heureuse année 2020!

        Oops, you probably used Google Translate for that one! Unfortunately it’s an idiomatic expression, not literally translatable. I can’t even think of a similar saying in French – I don’t think there is one! Pretty funny though. I’ve got a hilarious one on my Savana GMC van. English: objects reflected by this mirror are closer than they appear. French: Les objects reflechis par ce mirroire sont plus prets qu’ils n’apparaisses. Only problem with that is, REFLECHIS does not mean to reflect,as in English, it means to think upon, more specifically, to ponder. So my van has one mirror blessed with awareness and intelligence, which is fine but doesn’t help me in backing up and I’m lousy at backing up. Oh yeah,a mirror “reflete” it does not “reflechis”… And on that note, give yourself a good new year, Tube.

        Sha’Tara, for Tubularsock the problem is that the French have a different word for EVERYTHING!

        And yes, Tubularsock relies on a drunken little French guy, Pierre, for all Tubularsock’s translation needs.

        Tubularsock seldom looks in a mirror because Tubularsock believes in forward action remembering Lot’s wife and her looking back at Sodom and Gomorrah. A place that Tubularsock would have never left ……. fuck god!

        But Tubularsock does respect YOU for your close evaluation of questionable French. Some one has to keep up the standards!

    Happy New Year! Such an occasion deserves a poem, of course.

    The year 2020 is almost here…
    And we all have nothing to fear…
    Except for the re–election of Donald Trump..
    And some more mass shootings
    Which will give us a bump..
    And more Trump tweets..
    Full of invective and hate..
    And the further deterioration
    Of the environment’s state…
    And more immigrants at our border..
    Will suffer and die…
    With not so much as a tear..
    From the Orange man’s eye…
    The world will go on…
    Being a crazy place..
    And Trump will greet dictators..
    With a smile on his face…
    The economy will continue to flourish…
    But it’s due for a bust..
    But will even that lose..
    The Megahat deplorables cult-like trust?..
    Of the man in the White House..
    Who gives liberals & progressives the blues…
    While getting most of his wisdom and insights..
    From his daily dose of Fox News…
    The world and our nation are in a hell of a condition..
    As our Tub of Guts-in-Chief
    Leads us to perdition…
    So as the year 2020 comes on the scene…
    Maybe it would have been better..
    If we’d have just remained in the year 2019…

    HAPPY NEW YEAR to all…

  6. Believe it or not, Tube, I had a dream about Donald Trump last night. He showed up unexpectedly at a local fundraiser I was helping to organize. He spent all the time on the phone and left a massive trail of crumbs everywhere. Our event got good media attention, though. Do you have any experience with dream interpretation?

      DrB., you have come to the right place. Tubularsock is an EXPERT on nearly everything.

      And dream interpretation is one of Tubularsock’s favorite skills right up there with painting the town red.

      So let’s face this dream straight on, shall we?

      The very first thing that was a relief to Tubularsock and Tubularsock is sure for you, DrB, is this was NOT a sexual dream. Yet, the leaving “. . . a massive trail of crumbs everywhere” is somewhat a possible representative state of symbolism.

      This we may wish to pursue in a future session.

      The concept of the “fundraiser” warrants a bit more analyses as does “good media attention” both we can delve into at our third session.

      For today, lets together tackle, “. . . He spent all the time on the phone . . .” which is a clear representation of his lack of present moment skills and finding himself in YOUR dream he became frightened.

      This of course we can not discuss due to privacy concerns for Trump but Tubularsock does see a clear and present danger to YOUR dreams.

      Tubularsock would recommend to contact the legal team of Tubular-Tubular & Sock Attorneys at Law at 1-800-555-CASH and have them place a dream-restraining-order on him in order to protect any further intrusion into your dream state.

      As for continuing with Tubularsock-Dream-Interpretation, Ltd. please contact the front desk and make an appointment for next week so we can pursue “the meaning of crumbs”.

      Tubularsock does hope that this session has been helpful for your quest for THE TRUTH.

      The trail of crumbs jumped up at me from two levels. The first, Hansel and Gretel who left a trail of crumbs to find their way back but the birds ate the crumbs, hence they got lost. The second was from that other ignorant A-Hole you had as president, Ronald Reagan and his trickle down theory of the crumps from the rich man’s table feeding the poor, hence the more you give to the rich, the more crumbs there will be for the poor to party upon… only the rich, including the orange tweet, know it is one of their greatest, bestest lies and only the MAGAHatters still buy into it. So being a tweeter (bird) he knew he was going to return and eat up all the crumbs… I have lots more but no time right now. Maybe later… I like Tube’s comment on your dream.

        Sha’Tara excellent examples of crumbology. Tubularsock has always felt that Ronald was for the birds anyway. Even if Tubularsock had to jump stories to make the point.

        However, even with your obvious skill with crumbology Tubularsock holds a degree (about 130 degrees Fahrenheit) in Dream analysis so please don’t crowd the market with unprofessional advice which Tubularsock dares to say borders on witchcraft.

        Tubularsock’s client, Dr.D, needs expert advice and not broomstick philosophy, Sha’Tara!

        Look Tube, I resemble those remarks. I do have a really good reason to expedite some broomstick flossofy. I’d parked the broomstick since it backfired badly during my last trick or treat evening and now had it tuned up at my favourite garage of the Dutch Reformed variety ownership. So needless to say, even if I do say so, I had to test it, didn’t I? Would you trust a Dutch Reformed to tune up YOUR broomstick? Also I just got my insurance renewed, and took lessons to get an added BS rating on my driver’s license. And now you’re giving me a hard time? Just for that I’m going to buzz your underground highrise some night when you least expect it… and I’m removing the muffler and adding one whole row of extra stiff, extra long bristles. …”I’ll get you my pretty! Hahahahahahaha…” 🧹🏴‍☠️

        On a more serious note, you could have a bread-cookie-chip crumb lodged under that key. Blower and vacuum cleaner time. Warning: if a laptop, popping the key button is usually not recommended. If it’s a stand alone keyboard, they’re pretty resilient and in any case cheap enough to replace.

        Sounds like a plan, Tube. There’s over 900 military bases me and my witch sisters go on a rampage against. The Valkyries might also be interested to participate. Could be fun, that!!!

        Sha’Tara, Tubularsock thanks you for your “Bread-cookie-chip crumbs” solution. You are soooo high tech.

        However it only happens when Tubularsock is attempting to use the WordPress edit function.

        Like Tubularsock said, the CIA is involved for sure.

        Hold on Sha’Tara, “witch sisters”? AND the The Valkyries?

        Let’s not get carried away. As long as they are willing to work as private contractors and don’t expect health benefits and a decent hourly wage then a contractual agreement could be arranged.

        With some serious discussions we could probably substitute health benefits for danger pay. Then there’s the full body armour…
