Perhaps it won't be THAT bad...we can always hope.
Our Hoosierland weather today will find us with partly cloudy skies, and then becoming all cloudy later on, as we see some showers move through the area. Temps will top out around 65 degrees, and with an overnight low in the low 50s, that's not that much of a change.
(Probably won't need the heating on)
So, let's all grab the soothing cup or glass of morning bliss as we set forth into the week.
*** First out of the stable is our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
April 13 -
---Today is SCRABBLE DAY
|You PLAY this...|
(now, SCRABBLE day is not to be confused with SCRAPPLE day, which would be a favorite of mine, having originally hailed from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania).
|You EAT this...(yummmmm)|
You could be staring at a TRIPLE WORD SCORE.
*** Next up, we just couldn't have a real weekend without some sort of SHOOTING in Fort Wayne now, could we?
Here's the story (such as it is so far):
At least this happened on the NORTH-east side of the city (spreading the "wealth" as it were).
Methinks local hospitals need some sort of "drive-up" window or "drop-box" for such victims...be a novel idea.
*** The latest homicide victim (number EIGHT, if you're keeping track for your deadpool) has an interesting story (and a past one could call typical) in today's paper.
Here's the link:
THUG, didn't learn a damn thing from a tragedy that happened to strike his family (he was ALREADY in JAIL when his infant son was killed) from a drive-by shooting 8 years prior.
One would think that any NORMAL person would indeed turn their life AROUND under such circumstances...if they gave a damn.
Apparently, not Stacy Dewayne Evans (seen at left), otherwise he'd not be in a place where he could be stabbed in the neck and/or shot to death, would he?
Again, bad choices, and the inability to learn from the experience permeate this culture, and it's inhabitants.
Sorry, but I cannot show empathy or sorrow for repetitive stupidity.
Too often in life, you get what you deserve...good, bad, or indifferent.
*** Next, an early morning armed robbery at another gas station/convenient store.
(wonder if it's the SAME ones that hit other stations and dollar stores?)
Without a perp DESCRIPTION, the public can't help the po-po...can they?
Love the way details are SO (not) forthcoming.
The robbers got away (as usual) with MONEY and LOTTO tickets (what? No NEWPORTS?
Maybe they were white guys?)
I dunno, but this SURE makes the case for NOT having all these places open 24/7, hmm?
*** Looks like we have ANOTHER LIAR running for president.
|You don't WANT THIS in the White House..!|
|The past IS repeated.|
I'd wager they have not.
They're more concerned about espresso machines going to the International Space Station...or what the Kardashians are doing to be bothered about things that MATTER.
Seeing Clinton run for office is actually PAINFUL to me...makes my brain hurt...a LOT.
And anyone that thinks she'd be a GOOD president is clinically delusional...period.
I want to see her chances of getting into the White House sink faster than the Lusitania. Seriously.
We do NOT need her anywhere close to Washington....and that goes for her hubby, "Chester the Molester".
Both of them...liars to beat the band, skirt the law and come out "clean", but you watch the lame-stream media climb right in the sack with them...AGAIN.
|Great play on words..and TRUE.|
I'd much rather have anyone in the presidency that WILL change America back to what it's supposed to be, and not what it has become over the last decade. And, I'm sure many of you feel likewise.
*** Last back to the corral...there are so many things I miss from the past and my childhood.
USED to act.
There used to be a time when people went out for the evening, they wore respectable clothing.
People used to better supervise their children and know how to say such things to them as the word "no".
People USED to remain QUIET during movies, unless the good guy won (they cheered), or there was a very SAD scene (they cried). Now, they yell and talk through the whole flick...hardly a good experience. Thank God for DVDs.
We used to ignore verbal slights...and joked about various nationalities...everyone did it, and everyone laughed.
We were a thicker-skinned people, a lot more reliant on ourselves than on government, and we were a mich PROUDER people for being Americans.
Americans were a RESILIENT people...we would bend with the wind, rather than snap in two or buckle to pressure.
Some still are that way, and God bless 'em all, but too many others have given themselves over to motivations of passion aka the "next fad", and their lives revolve around whatever comes down the pike, rather than creating a good foundation for family and themselves.
Because of that, people no longer know (or in many cases care) what their boundaries are, and therefore cannot effectively police themselves as they used to. That borders on anarchy when everyone does what they want without self-restriction.
Anyone old enough to remember such things knows exactly what I'm talking about.
Such good facets of humanity need to be preserved and nurtured, lest we all loose our way in our nation, the best one on the planet.
All of us still have so much untapped potential, and would we to channel it properly, this country would rebound ten times faster than it has declined.
Be nice to live long enough to see THAT, wouldn't it?
You bet it would.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
