|Some walk in the rain...others just get wet.|
Yes, once again, our back yard gets a reprieve from the mower (even though it needs cutting).
And the number of roads and streets closed by this inundation continue to rise, as does all three of the rivers here. The good news is that I haven't read or heard about anyone named NOAH building some huge boat in his backyard...yet.
Our Hoosierland weather will be more of what we've been having over the last week and a half - showers today, high somewhere in the 80s, not much sunshine, plenty of humidity...where have we heard this BEFORE?
Anyway, let's get our morning drink poured and parked nearby...and take a look at what is going on elsewhere...
*** First out of the rain-drenched culvert today is our WHO SAID THAT? quote for the week:
"The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain."
So, WHO said that anyway (and no, it ain't someone living in Indiana...lol)
The answer at the toip of tomorrow's post.
Meanwhile, back at the Grand Ole Opry...
*** Next up, we have our "What the hell happens today, Bob" feature:
June 17 -
---Today is EAT YOUR VEGETABLES DAY/
IS this with the veggie thing? Yesterday was was FRESH veggie day...today it's EAT them.
(where the hell's my BACON....I need a sandwich...LOL)
Don't worry, tomorrow's got more things and none of them vegetable-related (we hope).
*** Next, it looks like the Indiana Career Council is thinking of a "revamp" of high school diplomas...
What they want to do is have TWO distinct diplomas:
1) College and career-ready
When I attended high school, we had THREE types of diplomas
1) Academic (college prep)
2) General (mine - jack of all, master of none kinda thing)
3) Trade-Prep (workforce entry)
Dunno why they HAVE to keep changing stuff like this.
Currently in Indiana, they have FOUR diplomas:
2) Core 40
3) Core 40 - Academic honors
4) Core 40 - Technical honors
Guess this is what you get when legislating politicians take over for those who SHOULD be running our schools...
*** Next, if you always wanted to take GOLF lessons (and who hasn't? uh, ME, for one) the local gold courses are OPEN, in spite of the rain.
|We're not THIS bad...yet.|
Yeah, that's what I've been dying to do...take golf lessons in the damn rain...NOT!
Can't wrap by mind (and body) around a GAME that forces you to hit a ball FAR away, then chase after it. And when you catch UP to it, what happens next? You hit it still FARTHER away. Where's the frigging fun in THAT?
|Well, a lesson from THESE guys would be "fun".|
*** Next, remember a while back when I mentioned that I was playing that Lego Star Wars game, and that it stopped working on the computer due to "support" issues? I was SO close to the end of the game.
Well, I did some informational "digging" and found a solution for our system...and it really WORKED.
|The Force was strong with me that day...|
*** Next, had to dust the award off, because THIS perp deserved it SO damn much,
Here's the story link:
EXACTLY as was planned. Luck was on the side of justice
A FWPD officer was parked in the SAME lot when a call came over the radio about a robbery taking place at the Walgreens in front of him.
So, when the perp exited the store, he was "greeted" by officer Tyler Bennett, who managed to provide some stainless steel "accessories" to go with the perp's outfit.
The robber, one Levi Frank-Halimton, 23, was taken into custody and is also believed to be the SAME suspect wanted in another robbery at a CVS located at 7330 Lima Rd back on 11 June.
Whatever the case, he wins the prize...and it's SO well-deserved.
*** Last back to the rain gutters...well, there can be some blessing attached to the rain.
What it seems to come down to, is that this old world has really created some very crap-headed residents.
You read the news or see stories on TV, and you simply CANNOT believe any of this stuff.
People have become the new "entertainment" for lack of a better term, and it's not because they're doing anything humorous.
|Step right in...|
Transgendered, transraced, and everything in between has become a "new normal"? Seriously?
When did BEING NORMAL fall out of vogue, anyway?
When did it become better to be weird? Is American turning into some gigantic freak-show?
This kind of stuff USED to be the sort that could be found in those carnival sideshows, alongside the dog-faced boy, or the lizard lady (who really suffered from severe psoriasis). The sword-swallower and the bearded woman were standard fare in such venues.
But no longer...now we seem to be hip-deep in those who exhibit jackass behavior, or are outright jackasses.
And social media isn't helping it one bit...it's pushing it along at breakneck speed and intent.
The MORE incredulous, the better.
I know I was bored with it from the onset...I'm too busy trying to maintain that level of normalcy to be bothered with all this.
|But I FEEL like I'm BLACK, precious...!|
Perhaps we need to keep all this crap in it's proper place and get back to the business of NORMAL in this country.
We've had enough from other nations and their laughter (since 2008) anyway, right?
We need to be better than this...for all our sakes.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
