Shotgun weddings and hottie grandparents...

A couple of days ago, I mentioned that I joined a Facebook group affiliated with the page, Duggar Family News: Life is not all pickles and hairspray.  The group was intended to allow page followers to discuss all things Duggar family with more ease.  I don't often comment on either the page or in the group, but I do find it interesting to lurk there.

Since the most recent season of Counting On started a couple of days ago, the group has been abuzz with commentary about the two most recent episodes that aired.  One post seeing a lot of action is about Paul Caldwell, father of Kendra Caldwell Duggar, pregnant wife of Joseph Duggar.  Kendra is about nineteen years old, I think.  She's kind of cute and seems very sweet, although she giggles even more than I do.  Her parents were similarly young when they conceived her.  Indeed, Paul Caldwell is 40 years old and his wife, Christina, is 38.  They are both younger than I am and set to become grandparents of the new Duggar boy Kendra is carrying.

It hasn't been lost on the people in the group that the Caldwells are a very young and attractive couple.  They have seven kids and could conceivably have more if they wanted to.  At least one person has speculated that their wedding may have even been a "shotgun" wedding.  

As I have stated before, if Christina Caldwell was pregnant when she got married, more power to her.  It's totally normal to have sex when you're a young adult, even if you aren't married.  But I will state for the record that the Caldwell grandparents are definitely hotter than the Duggar grandparents are.  However, Paul Caldwell's youthful, boyish looks do not negate the fact that he doesn't believe homosexuals exist.  That attitude may make some people think he's less attractive.  On the other hand, given that JimBoob has similarly hateful opinions about gays and lesbians, I'd still say Paul Caldwell is way hotter... speaking only about his external appearance.

I'm pretty sure someone from In Touch Weekly must be trolling Pickles' page about the Duggars.  Every day, I see a new post about the Duggars and it's often based on stuff that gets posted either on the page or in the group.  Maybe they should hire Pickles to write for them.

In other news...

Last night, I got a wild hair up my ass and bought tickets to see The Rolling Stones.  I have never been to one of their concerts, but I have a feeling that they won't be touring for too many more years.  I spent a lot of money on the tickets, but what the hell...  This year, we don't have any expensive trips planned because Bill is still accruing time off.  He had to go "in the hole" last year when we went to Scotland and Northern Ireland after he changed companies, so that makes leaving town harder.  

The Stones are performing in Stuttgart, so this show won't require us to go anywhere.  We do usually stay in a hotel downtown when we go to concerts because it makes it easier for Bill to enjoy himself.  Also, you never know how long the shows will run.  This particular concert is on a Saturday night, so there won't be any issues with Bill missing work or anything.  It should be interesting to see how the Stones are holding up after all these years in show business.  I don't think Keith Richards is ever going to die.

In February, I bought tickets to see The Rolling Stones, Paul Simon (in Dublin), and Elton John (next year).  I almost never go to concerts because I don't like crowds, but this must be my year to see some legends before they're done touring.  Hopefully, it'll be a good time for everyone.  

Maybe later I'll decide to write a rant.  It is Thursday, though, and that's usually when I do a slack ass job of vacuuming our uninspiring house.  I'd rather clean toilets.


  1. I'd love to see a Duggar just once come right out and say, "We did it before we were married, and anyone who has a problem with that can suck a donkey's ****."

    Those are awesome concerts for which you have tickets.

    1. That would be epic. Boob would bust a nut, which would be a perfect outcome.

  2. P.S. I can truly empathize with Kendra in terms of having really good-looking parents and being kind of cute but not necessarily looking like the product of my parents' mating experience would be expected to look.

  3. I don't think I could stand to watch a bunch of people whose (seemingly) sole purpose in life was to make more people. But they are entertainingly goofy.
    Sounds like some terrific concerts to go to. I can't believe Keith Richards has lived this long. Maybe he has ingested enough stuff to preserve him while he is still alive.

    1. Keith Richards will never die...

      As for the Duggars and their ilk... I agree that they need to rein in their procreative impulses.

    2. I don't think I can stand watching a bunch of people who's sole purpose in life is making fun of a bunch of people.
