Humpday Happenings...
It's the middle of the week...already.
And, it also looks to be another nice day in our part of the Midwest.
Also, just to make life even MORE "fun", I don't know WTH was up with GOOGLE this morning...doesn't want to run at the speed it's supposed to, doesn't want to load CERTAIN pages, and is acting like many of my "neighbors" around here...like a damn LAZY-ASS.
Slower than molasses in January.
Whenever I would attempt a search, I got "pages unresponsive"...
Yeah, like THAT will help.
Tell me something I DON'T KNOW, you assholes!!!
We shall try our best to get this ball rolling in SPITE of such nuisances.
It does seem to be "getting it's act back together".
"Weather-wise, it's a keeper."
Our Hoosierland weather will again see us with fair skies, and temps will top out around the 80 degree mark..not much else to say about THAT.
(other than enjoy the day, such as it presents itself)
Now go grab that morning drink and park it alongside as we strive to find out what has been going on elsewhere...
*** First out of the clusterf$ck is our WHO SAID THAT? quote of the week:
"Bad laws are the worst kind of tyranny"
Anyone following along with the power plays in D.C., or foreign and domestic policies can clearly see where THIS quote makes a lot of sense.
So, WHO said that?
The answer at the top of tomorrow's post (I hope).
Meanwhile, back at the East India Company...
*** It's also time for our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature...and I promise NOT to muck it up...LOL.
July 22 -
(kinda hard to pull off in an apartment, I'll grant you that...but NOT impossible)
Wonder if any of those will be down at City Hall...they could use a decent "house-cleaning" THERE!
Probably have to get a damn FLUTE, or lots of cheese.
*** Next...well, the paper was on the TOP step today - first day in several.
We shall see if this edict holds.
I'd hate to loose the morning paper...the cat REALLY likes to piss on it so much (when he misses the litter pan).
*** Next, a Fort Wayne killer gets his due.
Here's the story link:
Dumbass LOSER
Ninety-one years for killing a SE side shop owner...sounds about right to me.
Enjoy your life and always "shower with a FRIEND"...
That's another boil on Fort Wayne's ass that's been lanced.
(how's about the OTHER several thousand?)
*** Next, more proof that the problems which have worsened life on the SE side are SPREADING...to the SOUTHWEST SIDE.
Here's the story link:
The ROLLER DOME on Bluffton Rd is closing...and yet, the NORTH location is remaining open (hmm...).
This is how it started on the SE side...incrementally, one place at a time.
Doesn't take long for the crims to get wind of this, and start THEIR shit, and that only hastens the process of decline.
Coming to a SW area near you (soon enough)
Then, before you know it, you have more Section-8 housing (oh, joy) and hardly any real businesses LEFT, except convenience stores, liquor stores, and gas stations.
Oh, and all those dollar stores...
*** And speaking of those, the Dollar General along Tillman Rd has been hit AGAIN (that makes FOUR robberies, if you're keeping count).
Here's the story:
What? AGAIN????
This happened Monday night around 2200 hrs, and differs from the robberies that occur when the stores first open.
I will confess that the headline is a tad misleading...sure they perps have been ID'ed..they were caught on video.
What IS interesting is that police "think" they have one of the two (that were robbing the stores) already in custody.
You remember the BK guy last week, who jumped in the St. Mary's trying to evade police?
Deonta Arrington...yeah, that guy...the one that carries firearms (police found an assault rifle in his car) without a license and is also a prior felon who is not allowed to have a firearm AT ALL..
Well, since he's been in jail, the dollar store robberies have had only ONE person involved...kinda makes you think.
The story states: "What's not clear is how police were able to ID the suspects in the previous robberies". I'd say a damn good guess with some LOGIC tossed in (and those videos)...LOL!
*** Next, A purse snatcher gets snatched up by police.
Here's this story:
ANOTHER loser...!!!
This took place up north (for a change), in early daylight...by a WHITE guy (well, that is a surprise).
It was around 0730 hrs on 21 July at the Ricker's BP station along Coldwater Rd.
The perp was seen getting out of a woman's car with her purse.
When she intervened, he struck her with a handgun and then drove away in a gold Cadillac.
Thanks to witness descriptions, police were able (cause they PATROL a lot more up there) to pull the suspect over and take him into custody.
A pistol was tossed not far from the Caddy, and police secured that as well.
Andrew. B. Nichols of the 3400 block of S. Barr St is now a guest of the local jail.
The woman suffered a minor injury to her head.
*** Last back to the cracker factory...it seems these days that "if it's not damn thing...it's another."
We have all the global problems which seem to grow in intensity damn near every day.
And then, we have all the domestic issues that seek to change the face of this country and our society in ways we cannot even imagine, save for the yellowing pages of some sicence fiction book witten decades before.
Finally, we have the local problems...one that impact us in the most direct way, with the exception of things that happen under our very own roof.
ALL this crap coming at all of us at once can often seem a might overpowering.
It's like trying to bail out the Titanic with a damn teaspoon, some days. I know from experience.
Sure would be nice to NOT have to worry about all the BIG things going on, so we could concentrate on the small things (before they also become the big things). There are those days when you just want it all to go the hell AWAY...period.
Thing is, there is a time and place for the battles we find ourselves in.
And there is a CHOICE we have to make along the way...and that is WHICH battle to fight, and which battle to leave alone.
I always say that is it affects you and your family in the most IMMEDIATE way, THAT is the one battle you fight, and fight to win at any cost.
When your home-front is secure and free from as much strife as possible, THEN, you can set about the next conflict.
But whatever situation you find yourself, you always have toa ct with ALL your heart (and soul).
THAT is what this nation has always been about, and it's something that NO level of tyranny (or control) can wrest from us.
We have to believe that above most everything else in life.
Be well, make a difference to someone, and...
Stay SAFE out there, America.

(( And, according to recently DECLASSIFIED data, guarded in our basement bunker, THIS is POST # 2400...!!!
And to think, some days I feel like I'm JUST getting started.
Thank you ALL for your steadfastness and for taking the time to follow this humble blog.
You are TRULY the chosen in MY book.))

Wow, Ratcatcher's Day? I'll have to let my dog know. She's a Rat Terrier mix. She doesn't actually catch any rats, but I'm sure she'd like to celebrate anyway. :)

That's a very cute dog...love those ears.
Bet she NEVER misses a call for "din-din"...lol.

Thanks for stopping by to comment.

Stay safe out there.
