Shameless plug for Cantankerous Old Coots

Check out the Coots!

One of the things you recognize as you get along in life is that there is nobody out there taking care of you or evem thinking about you.  They aren’t worrying about helping you and they aren’t looking for any suggestions about something they should be doing.   If you want them to do something even if it is for their own good, it will never occur to them on their own because they are too busy screwing up their own lives to be bothered with screwing up anybody else’s (unless the stars converge and they can accomplish both at the same time).

You have to flat out tell them.

So today I want to suggest that you check out the new blog Cantankerous Old Coots or our cantankerous manifesto.  I have had to clean up after the hotheaded whippersnapper Justin who impetuously set the place up and then went back to his kettlebells .  I added some content.  But proceed with caution.  Don’t expect to learn anything or develop your lifestyle.  It won’t make you a financial powerhouse or a software guru.

What will it give you?  Well, it might just give you a chuckle or an opportunity to rant about some craziness in your life or you might just be a hopelss void.  It is all good.   But if you do decide to drop by, beware,  you might just find out that you are a cantankerous old coot too and then there is no turning back.

    Hi Ralph,
    I kidd you not, I live just off of Coot Mason Hwy. Old Coot was as slow a coach as a bag of hammers. However, he went on to establish a tractor company worth millions. Guess he wasn’t as slow a coach as he lead us to believe!

    Jeffrey,
    Coots survive. They hang in. And in the end that is all that matters.

    Ok, screw it, I’m in.

    I can help on the tech side, branding and merchandising.

    First up: COOT coffee cup.

    Ralph, I think you might do really well with this. Roll in the lawn, the effen brugmansia, all of it.

    Dave,
    Roll right on in, only watch the brugmansia because it is poisonous. Luckily, the freeze last winter killed it.

    This promises to be entertaining…you and Justin spearheading an old coot movement. Wat will Blogistan think of next?
