Labor Day festivities went well.
After the start we had to the month, I sincerely hope the rest of September goes without incident.
Our Hoosierland weather today will be wet to begin with...showers this morning, giving way to some sunshine with temps reaching up to 80 degrees.
But cheer up, it could be a foot of SNOW on thee ground (hold that thought until December).
*** And, as a little sidebar to our weather, it may interest you to know that we had absolutely NO days in August where the temperature reached NINETY DEGREES (or above).
How's about that, hmm?
It's also the SECOND year in a row this has occurred...guess that's blowing off all those "Global Warming" zealots nicely.
|When will these morons bugger off?|
Fun trivia there, right?
TODAY is National Blueberry Popsicle Day, so go stain your tongue and gross someone out.
*** As a Public Service to Hoosiers everywhere, I'd thought it only fitting that I let you all in on what EXACTLY happens THIS month (aside from prepping the leaf blowers).
So here goes:
German American Heritage Month begins on September 15 in the United States
(So, do we call this "Septemberfest" instead? Pass the sauerkraut)
Classical Music Month
(Ahh, FINALLY a month to appreciate GOOD music and the "ultimate oldies")
Hispanic Heritage Month
(great, more mariachi hip-hop music from all the new "neighbors" and boozin' beaners)
Fall Hat Month
(Didn't know we had "specific" hats for Fall)
International Square Dancing Month
(bow to your partner and bow to your corner)
National Blueberry Popsicle Month
(Thought it was just a DAY thing)
National Courtesy Month
(That will NOT be celebrated ANYWHERE around our "Fortress"...just within it's walls)
National Piano Month
(Tickle those ivories...and ebonies)
(Okay, so is that the BIRD, the food FROM the bird, or the stupid game people play on I-469 during Rush Hour?)
Baby Safety Month
(Another thing that's not practiced in the ghettohood)
Little League Month
(Geez, the LL World Series is OVER...what's left?)
(I'm guessing they mean the FOOD...but it could be a significant OTHER, too...right GUYS?)
|Down here, that's called a SEWER REPAIR|
(ROFLMAO...yeah, that's gonna happen down here on the SE side...)
Better Breakfast Month
(As long as it's free for the lazy-asses who can't make it for their kids)
So there 'ya go...who said this isn't a month where stuff happens?
*** And while we're on the subject of "stuff"...how about THIS recent crime:
Yep, always good to know that the FWPD has some REAL job-security on the (...where else?...) SOUTHEAST SIDE.
The robbers brandished guns and demanded money (which they got), and then left to a nearby alley. A K-9 unit tracked to the alley but lost the track, meaning that the perps probably got into a car and left the scene.
Bet good money the place had been scoped out previously to ascertain number of employees, access to money, etc.
And security had left for the night as well...says a lot.
Guess it beats getting beat at a night deposit box, though, right?
*** Next up, still have this damn cold, or whatever you want to call it. Coughing and blowing my nose let's me know I'm still alive and kicking (always a plus at my age...lol).
And since I've had my share of such things all my life, it's easy to determine how it's all progressing.
When the phlegm starts to break up, that's a good thing, and no real fever to speak of (another plus). Still have an appetite, even if I can't taste or smell all that much, and I am drinking lots of fluids (citrus mainly) which helps so much.
You just get tired of coughing, but you have to do it, to eliminate the fluid in the lungs.
I remember nurses coming in and lightly pounding on my back to break it up when I had double pneumonia as a kid...(nice work if you can get it).
It takes a bit longer when you're older, but it won't be long before I'm my old irascible self once again (the world beware)
*** Last back to the pharmacy today, I do like the fact that every day IS a gift, and there's a reason for just "being".
And I'm sure many of you feel likewise...that whole "through sickness and health" doesn't just have to apply to marital vows, but I like that it's included.
I think that ANY burden is halved whenever someone is willing to share it with you, and when a joy comes along, that same person DOUBLES that joy.
Not a bad way to handle the vicissitudes of life, is it?
Stay SAFE out there, America.
