June tweets of the month!
This picture of me in my Tin Lizzy office was taken in '15 by my buddy Brian Henry. We spent the morning doing a bunch from all over this neat old landmark, which dates back to 1750. Sometimes when I'm feeling mischievous, I turn the "9" upside down so it'll confuse any deliverymen or women who come all the way up to the 3rd floor to deliver me an important package. This has never happened not even once.
Follow my tweets @8days2Amish. Have a great weekend!

• In ongoing quest to prepare you and I for the afterlife, I will now devote the next hour to resolving if Heaven has time zones.

• There will still be traffic in heaven, but there will be no more road rage.
• Those eager to see a hyphen in this sentence will suffer from dashed hopes.
• If violence is never the answer then what's wrong with us that we must again and again keep asking the question?

• Daughter, 16, said she wants to have a big family. What she means is she wants to choose who's in her family.
• On 73rd DDay anniversary I wonder how they could be The Greatest Generation and still have raised so many jackasses like me?
• ”Eve of Destruction" is most harrowing protest song ever. Lyrics remain relevant. I'd like to hear a current re-release but sung by Muppets.

• I like that a man whose name is pronounced COMBy has really great hair.

• I can look at any woman and know instantly whether or not their daddy was a tickler.
• McCartney was an optimist, cheerfully convinced it would all work out. Lennon a pessimist, grimly sure of eventual doom. Who was right?

• The whole arc of human history is bent on turning every luxury into a necessity.
• Always amused when officials at mass shooting du jour rule out terrorism. Like we're supposed to be relieved it's just some white dude.

• Given it involves our twin unhealthy obsessions of sports/politics I wonder how many are most upset 'cuz they have Scalise on fantasy team.

• Full disclosure: Anytime you see any writer use phrase "Full disclosure:" understand they're about to write self-important BS.
• Missing golfing w/ Dad on Father's Day. Golfing w/ Dad was to me like church is to other people only with beer and fart jokes.
• Many adamant about seeing Trump's taxes. Me, I'd appeal to his showmanship: Either show us your returns or what you look like w/out the wig.
• There are 310,800 hip replacements per year. Question: what do they do with bones. I fear I'm not as hip as I used to be and, well, you know.

• I wonder if parents of boys born above the Arctic Circle ever struggle with the illogic of naming the fair-skinned lads Tanner.

• What if you get to heaven & find they were serious about forgiveness & it's full of folks you with whom you got into Facebook fights over Trump?
