Here we are at weekend's door once again, my friends.
We're going to make this post short, sweet, and to the point, so get ready.
Our weather this weekend will have a tad bit of rain included in the mix, just so you know.
Temps will be more seasonal, and continue to rise into the low-mid 40s, so dress and shop accordingly.
In the meantime, go top off that cup of java or tea, and let's see what is going to be setting the pace for the next 72 or so hours, shall we?
Got a feeling it'll be more LUCK than anything that nails this shooter.
('cause dem folk don say nuffin to the po-po)
*** Cocaine sting nets two after high-speed chase.
Here's the link:
I caught part of this on the police radio as it unfolded around 1515 hrs this past Tuesday.
It began with an undercover buy of a KILO of cocaine, up in a retail lot along Lima Rd, and ended after a chase that reached speeds of 100 MPH at a fence in the 7700 block of West County Line Rd.
Perhaps using a Chevy Malibu as a getaway vehicle wasn't the BEST choice when being chased by Impalas?
Pedro Garza and Luis Juarez-Cabrera are now planning on spending the holidays in the local hoosegow, courtesy of our friendly neighborhood LEOs.
Federal charges were filed in U.S. District Court for possession with intent to distribute.
Wonder how far DOWN the rabbit hole this Hispanic drug dealing will wind up, and how ENTRENCHED it has become in Ft. Wayne?
I know in years past, law-enforcement caught Hispanics smuggling drugs into Ft. Wayne using large pottery vases.
THAT was a good haul...AND a good bust.
The authorities MIGHT want to take a look around my part of the ghettohood, because we have our share of Hispanic druggies as well as blacks (now).
I'm just sayin'...
*** Next up...I'm sure many of you remember the late Paul Harvey.
I have never heard such a marvelous commentator on the air, and I confess to missing his daily airings.
This particular commentary was sent to me from a dear friend from my high school days, and after viewing it, I just have to share this with all of you.
It's only a little over 3 minutes in length, and was first broadcast back in 1965.
I find it fascinating that someone could be SO correct in predicting what has come to pass.
I never knew that Paul Harvey was that intuitive, but I certainly do NOW!
And now you know...."the rest of the story".
*** Lastly today...as the holidays fast approach, we're often reminded as to the REAL reason for the season.
However, we're also sidetracked by all the commercialism that runs rampant as well.
We also play the appropriate music and watch the movies of the season as well, and rightly so. There comes that special feeling when we hear the strains of Joy To The World (with a fukl orchestra and choir) , Handel's Messiah, or Silent Night.
Now, if you're not religious, you can still take part in the whole "peace, joy and love" thing (but NO hippies, please...lol)...it's not JUST for believers of any religious faith, but much might be lost in that "translation".
So, when you're out and about during the weekend, take a little time to allow the season to "get under your skin" a bit more than it usually does.
You won't develop a rash, nor will you want to scratch that itch away.
Always hold to the REAL reason for this season...and you won't go wrong.
Do have yourselves a great weekend.
Be well, make a difference to someone today, and as always...
Stay SAFE out there, America.
