The Hoosierland weather looks to be somewhat cooperative, but we've still got the threat of rain in the area, scattered as it may be.
Temps today will reach into the upper 70s and mostly cloudy skies (does this all sound a bit repetitive?), and light breezes.
Hey, I just report the weather...don't blame me.
As we greet the day, let's get a nice cup or glass of Friday Fortitude poured and together, we'll see what this day has in store...
*** First out of the shooting range is our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
July 10 -
---Today is TEDDY BEAR PICNIC DAY
Don't think we need an explanation there, do we?
*** And since it's the weekend, I wonder what's in store for us?
July 11 -
---Saturday is CHEER UP THE LONELY DAY.
LONELY and who are ALONE.
(Yes, there is a difference)
---It's also WORLD POPULATION DAY
ALL of us are connected to THIS one, right?)
July 12 -
---Sunday is DIFFERENT COLORED EYES DAY
|From the movie "Labyrinth"|
---And, it's PECAN PIE DAY
THAT is like heaven on earth if you've got a sweet tooth)
There you go then...all you needed to know. Enjoy.
*** Next up...yep, ANOTHER shooting on the (where the hell else?) SOUTHEAST SIDE of the Fort Wayne.
This all started around 1845 hrs last evening near the intersection of E. Rudisill Blvd and Winter St
---It appears that we NOW have homicide NUMBER "FOURTEEN".
(WANE says FIFTEEN...someone sneak one PAST ME?):
|Yes, that IS an OLD ghetto-sled.|
Funny, I don't see any bullet holes in that car door...maybe a head shot?
Police did manage to glean that those in the car thought shots came from a house in the 4000 blk of Lillie St. The EST responded with the armored car and after a 3 hour standoff (to wait for a search warrant) they made entry, and found the house vacant.
Now, the house raided on Lillie St did already have bullet holes in it.(Perhaps that was the scene of the shooting of that male and he was being driven to the hospital?)
Police were still getting conflicting information (they always do when dealing with people down here).
|We know were the cops were LAST night.|
In the meantime, police had set up a perimeter, and expanded it as the night wore on (in the hopes of netting the shooter, no doubt).
As of this morning, no one is in custody, and police have little to go on.
(that sounds ALL too familiar - more investigating, less policing)
At one point last night, an officer walked through Lillie St, shotgun strapped across his chest, commanding people to remain in their homes...SOME people had to be told several times...(damn nosy-ass busy body lookie-loos).
And we wonder WHY this part of town never gets any better?
(because the city makes money off of such people, believe it or not...ask the feds)
Could be a "fun" weekend down here.
*** A sports figure I greatly admired growing up has passed away.
|THOSE were thew days...|
Here's the story:
Stabler was one of the best QBs at the time for that era (imho)...very cool under pressure, and since he was a southpaw, it made interceptions a lot harder for the opposing defense to catch. Fred Biletnikoff didn't have ANY trouble though, as he was USED to catching the "reverse-spin" on the football. Here is Kenny's WIKI:
To me, he was the AFL's version of Roger Staubach, and it's a shame to see him leave us this soon.
*** Next up, since hardly anyone made any comments yesterday, I can only conclude that near ALL of you were SO TAKEN ABACK by this plan by the Obummer regime, that you were beyond words...(or you all went on a 24 hour vacation...lol).
|It all comes together, given time.|
The whole housing issue, and how illegals are given passes in certain cities...all for the sake of voting blocks...got nothing to do with jobs, and has a lot to do with law-breakers getting into THIS country, leaving theirs and bringing all the ":baggage" that comes with the lower levels of humanity.
Sure, one might make an analogy to the Italians, or Irish, or even Chinese in times past, but at least THEY all did things LEGALLY, and came to our country's shores through the proper channels.
THIS current debacle is a whole other animal.
And, it's nothing new or even recent, either.
Back in the year I was born (1952) there were at minimum 300 K+ people crossing our border ILLEGALLY. And THAT (per year) number has INCREASED since
|They NEVER play this music video anymore...|
Yeah, we're a little PAST that number...and been past it for quite a while, too.
Just wanted you to know that.
.*** Last back to the clubhouse...there is this curious MOSAIC that is being laid out before us, and it's not the type you would admire.
It's more "subtle" by nature, but given enough time and experience, you CAN see it more easily.
Think back to that Star Wars movie where Senator Amidala hears the new "changes" to the Galactic Republic, and how those changes are met with cheers from everyone in attendance.
Doesn't matter if it's fiction...or fact, a supreme chancellor or a president...the result can often be the same.
BS line told to the listening masses.
And we know how that pans out in the Star Wars saga...right?
Maybe we can AVOID such a similar fate.
It will take persistence...and wisdom...and strength...and above all...courage.
But the means to keep OUR nation above all others IS at hand...all it takes from us is to make the right choice.
Therein lies the lesson for the week.
Have yourselves a good weekend.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
