(where DOES the time go?)
Our Hooiserland weather will be a pretty close copy to yesterday with mostly cloudy skies, and temps reaching into the upper 80s, a good amount of humidity (you WILL know it's there) with the chance of some showers later on into tonight.
So, without any further delay, let's get that morning beverage alongside us as we see what's been going on...
*** First out of the hopper is our 'What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
June 12 -
---Today is RED ROSE DAY.
FLOWER and not the TEA.
*** And since it's Friday, let's take a look at what's going on over the weekend:
June 13 -
---Saturday is SEWING MACHINE DAY.
Time to thank Elias Howe who invented it.
UNLESS I watched the end credits of the Beatles movie HELP!)
---June 14 -
---It's FLAG DAY
*** Next I was correct when I said in May that we were REALLY at ELEVEN homicides for the year.
NOW brings us up to NUMBER TWELVE (the man found dead in that closet).
Here's the details:
I mean, if I can count up to 45 (like in 2013), it's damn easier to count up to 12...right?
*** Next up, what happens when you put trash into some apartment buildings, mix in welfare, crime, and the dissolution of the family unit?
|Looks nice - looks CAN be deceiving.|
The Baldwin Creek Apartments, nestled nicely in the NE ghettohood, at Hobson and State, is the scene of a major raw sewage backup into the basements of several of the buildings there. I guess the thugs will have to find other places to sell their drugs and shoot one another.
|Milling about - what THEY do best.|
And police being at that complex IS a daily "ritual"...ask people that know the area.
I was waiting for another McKinney, Texas to break out, but the ghetto-fleas seemed to move along without major incident.
Sources are saying it might be 48 hours before people can return to their "cribs", but others are saying it will be much longer, considering the major HEALTH concerns, which the residents didn't seem to be bothered by.
|Nice NEW vehicle there - don't forget your drugs.|
(oh, you can bet the lawsuits are already starting to pile up...and race-baiters are circling like vultures over a desert corpse.)
*** We had another stabbing in the city overnight, too.
Here's the story:
Well, at least it's on the southWEST side (barely) for a change.
The victim was taken to hospital with an abdominal wound in serious condition.
*** Next up, an update with the two mooks on trial for that shooting (that I mentioned in yesterday's post) have had "their" turn to address the jury, and provide their alibis.
THEY WERE SOMEWHERE ELSE AT THE TIME.
Well, there you go then - case closed...LMAO!
Naturally, there are those who are assisting in the LIE being told...that's what these people do best.
Lord knows they can't even come close to being PRODUCTIVE citizens, right?
Sir Christopher Lee, perhaps one of the BEST, if not prolific villains, who starred in over 250 films passed away at the age of 93.
Here is his WIKI (and it's a long one...with good reason:
In fact, his filmography is so long, it has it's OWN WIKI, found HERE:
Now, I dare those of you with some years behind them to go down the movie list and see HOW MANY of his films you've seen.
I know I have seen a LOT of them...and multiple times.
He was the quintessential modern-day Dracula, following closely enough in Lugosi's steps that Bela's widow GAVE Lee the same RING Lugosi wore in HIS Dracula films...and Lee wore it proudly in every one of HIS Dracula movies.
Lee really hit his stride with Hammer Films (UK) in the 1950s, and that continued well into the 70s.
He was the stuff of those long-gone "all-night" drive-in horror fests...and I went to my share of them. That will get a pre-teen youth checking under the bed at night.
Standing 6 feet 5 inches tall, he WAS an imposing figure, an yet, everyone that knew him said he was the antithesis of the villains he portrayed, and a gem to work with.
|Every horror fan's favorite "pain in the neck"|
One thing Lee never lacked for was a want to work. And he did it so very well.
And, I'm okay with that.
Thanks Sir Christopher...you gave us one helluva ride and we enjoyed every single goosebump along the way.
Do have yourselves a very good weekend.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
