RAINIEST weeks I've seen a MANY years.
Believe it or else, we might even catch a bit of a break today...we might get to dry out, however brief a time that will become.
Our Hoosierland weather will see us with temps almost to the 80-degree mark, lots of humidity (with all the rain, you thought otherwise?), and mostly cloudy skies today. If you see the sun, please don't take it as a sign of the "end times"...not yet, anyway.
So, get the cup or glass of Friday Fortitude poured and parked nearby, as we take a look at what's going on elsewhere...
*** First off of the slip and slide is our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
June 19 -
---Today is WORLD SAUNTERING DAY.
|Is this like a "stroll"?|
I guess Chris Martin could be considered a world-class "saunterer".
I only saunter because I'm not as spry as I used to be, but when required, I WILL pick up the pace a bit.
*** And since it's FRIDAY, let's see what the weekend has in store for us all:
June 20 -
---Saturday is ICE CREAM SODA DAY
REAL ones these days...not any "soda shops" around)
---It's also NATIONAL HOLLERIN' CONTEST DAY
|The "D.I." ALWAYS wins...|
Still, I'll bet the locals will be of good "voice", as will their car stereos (damn it)
---And, it's WORLD JUGGLER'S DAY
|He said JUGGLING...NOT "jiggling", got it?|
June 21 -
---Sunday is FATHER'S DAY.
|Hey, which oneayou be mahdaddy???|
|The way it SHOULD be...|
---It's also GO SKATE DAY
|Not until the water goes away|
---It's THE SUMMER SOLSTICE also know as the NICEST DAY OF THE YEAR.
|Where are all the Druids?|
---And, it's the ANNIVERSARY OF MR AND MRS BOBBY G. - been 18 years...seems longer....
|All those years - all that camo...lol|
Well, they say this is the PORCELAIN anniversary...but somehow a new TOILET doesn't seem quite appropriate, does it?
|Not my FIRST choice of gifts|
|Hers and His - Now THIS would work.|
I don't think I REALLY want THAT much real estate, even if the food there is great.
|How to put a BOW on THIS?|
Can I get egg rolls with that?
*** Next up, our "fearless leader" just HAD to open his mouth and chime in over the church killings in S. Carolina.
|Might as well be him|
Another libtard that really knows how to "step in it"...up to his neck.
Whenever this person says "...let me be clear". you just KNOW that BS is going to flow profusely, which it did.
It really pissed me the hell off to hear this tripe on national news.
And, once again, we see the CONTEXT being twisted about to suit HIS agenda, which would be for stricter gun REGULATIONS against ALL people, and not specifically for those with mental health conditions who should not possess a firearm.
Not bad rhetoric from this nation's TOP gun salesman (since 2008, anyway), right?
He needs to just spend the rest of his term doing nothing, because THAT is what he has excelled at for the last seven years.
Mr president - do us ALL a favor and PUH-LEASE STFD and STFU...!
*** Next up, today is the birthday of none other than GARFIELD THE CAT.
|Don't forget the cake...|
And it's been one fun-filled ride ever since.
Here's the WIKI that tells the "tail"
If you wanted to know anything about Garfield, this WIKI has got a lot of information about him, and the supporting characters.
|LOTS of cake...|
(what else would it be?)
Play some games, have some fun, and buy some stuff...lol.
*** Last back to the "Fortress"...Bill O'Reilly will have a special show tonight that focuses on the gun issue in America, and this is one that I feel is very important, because "some" will tell you our problems stem FROM the overabundance of firearms.
We never had a real GUN problem in America. In fact, guns were INSTRUMENTAL in not only the founding of this nation, but it's growth.
Pioneers would have starved homesteading the west without them.
We wouldn't have a real military without them.
And we certainly would not be the nation of freedom we are without them.
All this is aside from the homeowner who defends their families from an intruder bent on harm to those people with a gun.
The church killings would probably never have happened if ONE person in that congregation had a gun to STOP the shooter.
Same can be said for EVERY other mass murder that has taken place, because the shooters choose the locales specifically.
Places where guns are either not permitted or just not carried is PRIME for those determined to kill innocent people...like a school...or a church, or even a mall or office building.
But ONE good guy with a gun can tip that scale in the opposite direction...just one.
To toss politics into the issue of a CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT to keep and bear arms is nonsense.
The Founders put the 2nd Amendment there for a REASON, and it wasn't one filled with regulations.
THAT is the realm of the people...especially the ones who need a form of institutionalization.
I will freely admit we have people who should not be "mainstreamed" with everyone else. The psychos, ones suffering from schizophrenia, and other assorted psychoses should get the help they NEED, and not the guns they do not.
|Go ahead - You know you want to...|
Therein lies the lesson for the week.
DO have yourselves a great weekend.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
