|This Deja vu is getting too repetitive.|
We're starting this Tuesday on a "soft" note, meaning it's RAINING outside.
For most of this morning the rain will continue, with perhaps a thunderstorm.
Nice way to have a last shot at Indian Summer.
The rest of the Hoosierland weather will see us with dropping temps throughout the day, so whatever it is outside NOW will most likely be the HIGH for the day.
That puts us in the lower 60s - upper 50s for the remainder of the day.
We might see the clouds break up a bit before the sun goes down.
(as if we can even see the sun past this overcast).
So, with that said, join me in a soothing cup of that morning beverage as we see what else has been going around the block...
*** First off of the umbrella stand is our "What the hell happens to day, Bob?" feature.
October 28 -
PLUSH ANIMAL LOVER'S DAY...now we all have loved some plush animal growing up, so this day must be for us, right?
Well, there's no mention of that, and neither is there mention of loving plush animals today, so, it seems to be a toss-up.
|Happiness is a Pooky to hug.|
What a quandary, right?
--It's also International Animation Day (according to the International Animated Film Association, founded back in 1960 in Annecy, France).
THOSE camel-jockeys would have a sense of humor to create animated anything?)
*** Here's an update to the latest shooting in Fort Wayne (Se side, naturally) that left one person ion serious condition last Thursday:
Socrates Bragg, Jr was (allegedly) the shooter, at least that's why he's in jail at this time.
He claims he was "walking across town" while the shooting went down...
ROFLMAO...sure he was.
(And I'm really Master of the Universe)
He's probably just a good boy...never hurt anyone...whatever.
The victim, who was shot multiple times still has a round lodged against his spinal column and may wind up paralyzed for the rest of his life.
Be claims it was a "set-up"...for WHAT, exactly?
*** And an update to the loon that killed a woman in a park last week:
|Got those CRAZY eyes.|
(At least I always have a reason)
And, according to someone who dealt with Albers at an agency (for emotionally-troubled children) on a regular basis, he was very manipulative.
Kinda sounds like the student that shoved a pen into the ear of a female student the other week...same expression of behavioral "traits",
Wonder if THAT teen is getting some help...and moreover, why he is being "mainstreamed" with normal students when HE is clearly wanting of "special needs".
This open a whole can of qworms here, because in recent history, people have taken to "redefine" what is meant by SPECIAL NEEDS, and have painted it all with a much BROADER brush.
But now, we're taking children with all this emotional and psychological baggage and adding them into the mix.
And many times, such children (and teens) have this tendency to just "go off" and exhibit behavior far from what we used to view as normal...how disruptive can that be in a classroom, hmm?
Those with such issues need to be remanded to s special school with teachers and caretakers who can properly deal with them and still have them learn in the process.
|Not to be mainstreamed with normal folks.|
Nothing racist or bigoted about it (as some leftards would imply erroneously)...it's just common sense and practical application of the right methodology for teaching such children (and yes, even adults).
*** Next up, there are those times when a craving becomes SO powerful, that you just have to take matters into your own hands...
Well, maybe not.
|Helluva park job.|
It's at this point that the story gets a bit "fuzzy", because they say the driver "was likely south on WEST Masterson".
Now, I've gone south on southbound streets, and west on westbound streets, but NEVER gone south on a westbound street, so either the reporter got it wrong, or the driver was going SIDEWAYS on Masterson...
Its unknown if the business will be open today (cops gotta go elsewhere for donuts...damn shame...lol)
*** Last back to the coffee shoppe...I seem to be noticing more and more "bad" in the world, and I'm sure I'm not the only one seeing it.
But it's not just the level of such things, but the chronic regularity of it all.
Now, aside from those lunatic radical Islamists seeking to die for their beliefs (and something I'm all in favor of helping them along with by ridding the world of ALL of them), we have more and more people just going "crackers" these days.
It's not only the "sensational" that makes the hourly news, either...it's just the manner in which people wish to conduct their lives that should be troubling to the rest of us.
ATTEMPT to practice some degree of civility.
It's not only better for us, but better for EVERYONE, right?
With every year, it feels like folks such as us are becoming more of an anachronism than anything else.
I can say that more people seem to be waking up from their self-effacing slumber and getting in touch with things that matter.
But too many are still hitting that SNOOZE button, and looking to government to help them along as they remain unchallenged, uninformed, and ill-equipped to handle the complexities of today's world.
Life (itself) is rough enough without having to deal with all the OTHER things around us, so why not make the best of it, rather than allow someone else to deal with it?
Sure sounds like a plan to me.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
