FROSTY Wednesday, and if you think that we're out of the woods with such conditions...wait until tomorrow, kids.
Our Hoosierland weather will see us with a high today of only around TWELVE (that's 12) DEGREES, with mostly cloudy skies after some AM sunshine (spotty as it will be) and perhaps a snow shower or two.
Seems the Midwest will have COLDER than normal temps for the remainder of winter.
Well, that's sure to help with melting snow and ice...NOT.
But it does beat having to not see your family car until April thanks to SEVEN feet of snow on the ground, hmm?
So, enjoy those sub-zero morning temps (from INSIDE) as we partake in a nice hot cup of midweek fortitude and look to this day and all it has to offer.
*** First out of Shackelton's duffle bag is our WHO SAID THAT? quote of the week:
"Many human beings say that they enjoy the winter, but what they really enjoy is feeling proof against it."
Now this seems right in step with our weather around here, so WHO said this anyway?
The answer at the top of tomorrow's post.
Meanwhile, back at the British Civil Service...
*** It's also time to see "What the hell happens today, Bob?"
February 18 -
---Today is ASH WEDNESDAY, and here's the WIKI on it, 'cause I don't wanna "splain" it:
(BTW, I gave up Lent for Lent AGES ago...it simplifies things, plus I'm not Catholic)
---It's also NATIONAL BATTERY DAY ...
Guess that's something to get charged up over...((groan))
|The beat of a different drum.|
*** Next up, I had to "rescue" Wifey from our driveway this morning.
As she was pulling out, rather then let the CAR roll straight back (and into the street, as we always do), she turned the wheel and cut an angle across some ice at the end of the driveway.
Well, all THAT did was spin the tire.
|Coming home when it's clear out.|
Within a minute, the car was on the street, allowing Wifey to get to school...problem solved.
I told her "It's easy when you know what you're doing."
About an hour after she left, I saw that she forgot her tote-bag with her lunch (and scarf) in it.
It does pay to pay attention (to the small things).
*** Next, proof that some Fort Wayne drivers have NO idea on how to properly PARALLEL PARK.
Here's the story link:
This began as an attempted traffic stop, became a pursuit, and ended up in a crash into a porch of a house located at 3314 Winter St.
(and yes, that's in the ghettohood)
|The PORCH is NOT the GARAGE, dumbass!|
Have to say that HIS park job looks a LOT like other ones I see in OUR neck of the woods...just not AS "abrupt".
I know I'm seeing FWPD cars in the area the past few days...could be a good sign IF it continues.
*** Next, Obummer is whining about how a FEDERAL JUDGE is going against "the flow", and that means the AGENDA of this administration when it comes to AMNESTY.
All I can say is..."I LOVE IT".
And, in a related story about YOUR tax dollars "at work", there's this gem:
Imagine that...illegals being ELIGIBLE for up to $24K (of your money)...
Add THAT to the free IDs, Drivers Licenses, and other "perks" this president is handing out on YOUR dime.
"Amnesty Rewards" is what one Texas politician is calling them...yeah, reward illegal activities.
That's what THIS president ios too keen on doing.
Punish those following the law,, and reward those skirting or breaking it...what an empty suit we have running our nation.
(and too often running his pie-hole)
The (in)Justice Department is filing an appeal to the judge's decision regarding amnesty, and I hope Holder gets called out for that as well.
Republicans are attempting to legislate a DEFUNDING proposition for DHS, because THEY are the ones who "control" the amnesty and deportation aspects of immigration.
Expect lawsuits from numerous states i=on this issue against the federal government...and get the popcorn. This should be fun to watch.
*** Next up...been sitting on this for a few days, until all the crap died down.
|SO, there he was, having his meal...|
Mr.Wrinkles stopped by on Valentine's Day, and when I had set the camera down on the ground, he decided to walk over to it.
|Can I comez over to see whatz you got?|
I'm just wondering WHO has WHO trained?
(Six of one, half a dozen of another would be my guess)
*** Last back to the ice-pack...This president (and his many minions) have been doing an exemplary job of turning our proud nation into one, huge, honking clusterf$ck.
In that, he does well.
|"Islamic Terrorists - Say it...SAYYY ITTT!!!"|
(you cannot make this shit up)
"WTF???" moments...and it's a pretty BIG one at that.
Let's see...these terrorists ALREADY have a "job"...destroy Western civilization through Islamic rule and Jihad.
Does ANYONE in their RIGHT mind believe for a moment that having terrorists pick fruit for $10 an hour will cause them ALL to suddenly drop their weapons and become peaceful people???
This is wrong on SO many levels, and I cannot believe ANYONE in this administration could be SO damn stupid as to even hint at anything this ridiculous.
|I dunno...worked damn well in TWO World Wars.|
Actually, it makes me question THEIR sanity.
You simply cannot REASON with the unreasonable...
But, as with ANY enemy of this country (or her allies), you CAN break their will, and that will produce results favorable for us and bad for them..
Trying to meet these terrorists half-way is NOT an option - killing them all certainly IS.
And, it's high time this president figured that out, instead of trying to cut down the number of "mulligans" at the links.
IGNORANCE of this administration against radical ideologies is appalling, and in earlier times, would be called treasonous against this nation.
The SILENCE on these issues from our president is DEAFENING.
And his "cavalier" attitude with our Constitution is reprehensible.
It is achievable, if all of us stay the course, and remain vigilant.
We need to keep speaking out against those who would turn this country into some 3rd world castoff.
And we need to keep questioning anything that seem out of place, for as sure as the sun comes up...it probably IS.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
