Tomorrow promises to bring a similar scenario.
(Seems a bit more like April than September, doesn't it?)
Personally, I could use a good dry-out, because we're still getting thos damn mosquitoes around.
Our Hoosierland weather for today brings us cloudy skies, scattered rain and perhaps a thunderstorm with possible gusty winds,
*** First off of the downspout is our "What the hell happens today, Bib?" feature:

ONLY ONE??? HALLELUJAH!!!
*** Next up, as could be expected, FWCS is wanting to make WE, THE PEOPLE pay more on (our) property taxes with a proposed THREE PERCENT INCREASE to pay for THEIR budget. Here's the story:
FWCS is cryin' the blues, and they should with such a bloated budget for 2019 ($305.9 MIL to be exact).
((The proposed budget is up 4 percent from 2018, with nearly 75 percent of spending – about $203.7 million – earmarked for the education fund.))
INCREASE is the SAME as that of the CITY budget (also up 4%).
They must really LIKE that number this year...maybe it's time for some math storytelling?
This is another financial "mosquito bite" that we can add to the ever-increasing number of increases to the citizenry.
In fact, we're hearing MORE HIKES that can be found in ANY football game.
Who's next? Step right up...
Come one come all to the Great Midwest Money Handout, funded by the taxpayers of Fort Wayne (and Allen County).
*** Next, let's delve into the human condition a bit with the ever-burning wuestion:
What is a sociopath?
Here are the Common Traits of such a person:
Ignoring social norms
Criminal behavior and problems with the law
Deceitfulness, such as repeated lying or using aliases
Conning others for personal profit or pleasure
Impulsivity and a failure to plan ahead
Irritability, hostility, agitation
Aggressiveness, such as repeated physical fights
Inability to learn from negative consequences
Reckless disregard for safety
Failure to hold down a job or honor financial obligations
Lack of remorse
* * * * *
Wow, that describes precisely damn near everyone living around us these days...a far cry from 20 years ago (when decent people lived around us).
(BTW, that is NOT a new Disney World attraction)
*** Next up, starting today, BBC America will be having a run up to the new Doctor (female that she is) with various episodes.
13th Doctor, no doubt).
They're tossing in some Torchwood eps as well.
Just don't forget to bring along your sonic screwdriver.
*** Next, time to drop on by our "Kitten Corner"...
|Gotta get that glitter ball.|
|Wish he'd let ME play with that damn ball.|
What a life, huh?
*** Next up, let's check back in with "Midnight and Whiskers"...
Sure, Midnight did his patrol, but he was back for lunch and dinner.
|Will you PLEASE get out of the street, buddy?|
|Good, now STAY over here.|
|Okay, what are YOU doing outside the gate?|
Both would do well to utilize the shelters...that's what they're there for anyway.
*** Last back to the rain barrel...We live in a crazy world and it's full of crazy people.
And sadly, the crazy-asses out there are resorting to shooting one another...mainly becasue it's easier than any other method
Recently, five people were killed in a Cincy Firt Third Bnak branch when a shooter walked in, past the "gun-free zoine" signs and the unarmed guards at the bank. Employess had been told they could be dismissed if they brought a (legally owned and licensed) gun onto the premises
Guess the OHIO gun laws need some "tweaking"? It WOULD save more lives.
FWPD, and they're carrying guns as well, none of them legally obtained. And they're not afraid to use them...like at Link's Wonderland last week.
A fine example of what a SOCIOPATH is. Yes, it IS a crazy world full of crazy people.
But the good news is that they are thinning THEIR ranks out faster than OURS.
(just not fast enough for me)
I wish that reassurance could just make me sleep a bit better at night...how about you?
Stay SAFE out there, America
