What The Hell?

First–the tale of the foot.

I would like to thank all my readers that were concerned and offered their well wishes for the plight of my foot.

The damn thing is broken…oh badly broken and it will take a couple of months before it will be back to normal if ever…..

I appreciate the concern….you guys are the best.  chuq


Recently a crazy story came out about the hearing damage that some American diplomats were suffering from while stationed in Cuba….some say it is happening to a few Canadian diplomats also.

That report was weird to say the least….but then I read another news article about Russian diplomats….

Russian ambassadors are dying at a startling rate: Russian and Sudanese authorities say Mirgayas Shirinsky was found dead at his Khartoum residence on Wednesday, making him the fourth Russian envoy to die overseas since December. Authorities say the 63-year-old was found in the residence’s swimming pool after suffering an apparent heart attack, the Sudan Tribune reports. Shirinsky had been the ambassador to Sudan since 2013, the New York Times reports. Vitaly Churkin, Russia’s UN envoy, died suddenly in February. Alexander Kadakin, Russia’s longtime ambassador to India, died after an illness in January. And Andrei Karlov, Russia’s ambassador to Turkey, was assassinated in December last year.

Not a good year for diplomats, huh?  Russian diplomats that is.

  1. Bad luck about the foot chuq…..
    Wish you the best.
    take care & try not to break the other one!
    Life suks sometimes.

  2. Looks like the Russkies are having a clearout. ‘Forced retirement’ the old-fashioned way…
    Sorry to hear about the foot, bad luck indeed.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Yes indeed does sound like the work of the Service 7 Group..,….gonna be a bitch for a couple of months….but what the Hell more time at the research center….LOL…..chuq

  3. Speaking of what the hell.. does anyone have the slightest idea why either us of Japan didn’t shoot down that North Korean missile?? Japan obviously knew it was coming as they sounded their air raid alarms. I can’t find any mention questions why it wasn’t shot down.

  4. Amazing how agile those door jambs can be, isn’t it? Came right up & planted itself right in the way I’ll wager…. I suppose it can be considered a distraction, though not of one’s favorite type. Look at the bright side, bro; no having to cut the lawn for a while….

    As for the Russians, I’d merely say, politics is a dangerous, dirty business, so, sorry, but, I’d call it inevitable, if not enviable….

    Heal fast, my friend…

    gigoid, the dubious
