NOT in the offing today, kids. Sorry about that.
Looks like we, hear in the Heartland are in for some soaking rain over the next day or two.
We're waking up to thunderstorms (and red skies), so you know what that means (red skies in morning, sailor take warning).
Luckily, we're not at sea, but it might feel close to that.
Our Hoosierland weather for today brings us overcast conditions, rain throughout the day (with thunder and lightning) with strong winds. Temps will rise to around 84 degrees.
UK), so take care driving and bring that umbrella along...you WILL need it.
Friday Fortitude, as we see what else has (and will be) going on...
*** First out of the deluge is our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
JULY 20 -
---It's National Lollipop Day
---It's National Moon Day
OUR first landing on the moon back in 1969)
---It's National Pennsylvania Day
*** Next up, and since we are at week's end, let's see what we can observe over the following 48 hours...
JULY 21 -
---Saturday is National Be Someone Day
---It's National Junk Food Day
---It's National Strawberry Rhubarb Wine Day
---It's Toss Away the "could haves" and "Should Haves" Day
JULY 22 -
---Sunday is National Hammock Day
---It's National Parent's Day
SE side of Ft. Wayne)
---It's National Penuche Fudge Day
FUDGE. What's there not to like?)
---It's National Rat Catcher's Day
And there we go then...plenty of things to keep one out of trouble. Always be sure to observe responsibly.
*** Next, yes friends, ANOTHER shooting on the (where else?) SOUTHEAST side of our city.
*** Next up, FWCS says no to metal detectors...for now. Here's the story:
EACS is asking for about 38 of the devices (to ensure safety for IT'S students).
Wonder why FWCS is dragging it's heels? Could there be some sort of "racial component" behind this?
I mean, we wouldn't want to "single out" those who would be more likely to carry a weapon onto school grounds, JUST because they're black...right?
Well, maybe FWCS will get another chance to make good on this. Remember, he who hesitates is lost.
*** Next, the airman who was the inspiration for the move "Good Morning Vietnam" has passed away.
Adrian Cronauer, who was (loosely) portrayed by Robin Williams in the move was 79 years old.
And he does have a WIKI:
((Cronauer was a member of Mensa and a "lifelong card-carrying Republican".))
Not bad for another Pennsy guy, even if he was from Pittsburgh.
*** Next up, it was refreshing to see some "fan favorite" episodes of Doctor Who on BBC America yesterday.
|"Tell them I took the LONG way around."|
They even included a LOST episode - SHADA (from the Tom Baker years), and it was good to finally see it in as complete a condition as they could manage.
|The 5th Doctor - Tom Baker|
*** Next, time to stop by our "Kitten Corner"...
And the chasing about was kept to a minimum.
Violet has her "following daddy around" routine down to a science...lol.
Gallifrey just comes and goes as HE pleases...when it's time to rub his neck, he WILL let you know.
He's the demonstrative one of the duo. She's the little lady.
*** Next up, let's check back in with "Midnight and Whiskers"...
|Now don't go wandering off again...|
|Where DOES he go anyway?|
But they were both here for treats-time.
|Treats-Time is coming.|
*** Last back to the soaked sidewalks...this time of year comes with a veritable cornucopia of insects.
|Destructive sum bitches|
The former are just plain destructive, while the latter are just plain noisy.
|Ugly little loudass.|
I am thankful the bugs don't own stereo systems (or get public-assistance).
With the bugs, it's ONLY a seasonal thing...there's the difference.
Perhaps the reason we have to put up with such people, is to show us how NOT to behave.
As we live (and teach) by example...SO...DO...THEY.
And you can rest assured that the bothersome among us are not following any "path to glory".
Does that make us SUPERIOR?
No, it just makes us less prone to follow evil and the devices it employs to take OUR eyes off of what we need to focus on.
BECOME better individuals...that's a daily task and requires perseverance and persistence. This is something completely foreign to some people.
No one can ever be perfect, but it sure can be easy enough to become a good person...that's the key.
Do have yourselves a good weekend.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
