Nice thunder and light show.
But, I suppose we have to "water the plants" as they got spoiled by ALL the rain earlier this summer.
The rest of our Hoosierland weather today will find us with clearing skies later on, and an eventual high around the lower 80s - up from an overnight low in the mid-50s All in all...not that bad for AUGUST.
So, let's all get our morning beverages poured as we take a loot at what all has been going on since "last" month...
*** First off of the rain-washed street is out "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
August 3 -
-- Today is (oh, cripes...) NATIONAL WATERMELON DAY
COULD go off on a tangent about the "locals" here, but I'll save that for later.
Let's just say that watermelon is something I never quite developed a liking for, and leave it at that, shall we?
*** Next up, and as we often usually begin many of my posts...we had (yet) another shooting...in another apartment complex...in another "hot spot" in the city...on the SOUTHEAST side
|Another "garden spot" of the SOUTHEAST.|
Two men were arguing in an apartment, one shot the other, and the victim called police. The shooter is still at-large, while the vic was taken to hospital in serious condition, but he was later downgraded to critical condition with a wound to the chest.
|"Our job would easier if they could shoot better."|
*** The murderer of a Memphis police officer has been ID'ed and a manhunt is on to find him.
Here's the story:
|Tremaine Wilbourn - LOSER!|
Only in THIS case, the shoe fits a LOT better, and this thug-ass coward runs away.
All this over a drug deal that was interrupted by Memphis Police officer Sean Bolton.
Also, dealing drugs in a Mercedes parked illegally in a SE Memphis neighborhood does NOT warrant an office checking it out?
(WTH is it with ethnics and the SE sides of cities?)
To me, this is ONE black life that does NOT "matter" as much as the life of the officer he took so brazenly and without conscience.
We should be saying BLUE LIVES MATTER in this instance.
Let's see the the "lame-stream" media gives THIS story as much attention as those where the perps are killed instead of the officer.
(or even a story about a lain lion in Africa)
*** Next up, and from our "Oh, shit, THIS can't be good for America" Department comes THIS little gem:
Yep, our "Fearless Leader" is at it AGAIN...finding something ELSE to f$ck the hell up...and he's back on the EMISSIONS bandwagon once again.
|Oh, wait...that's a picture of CHINA'S pollution.|
Yeah, he's going (back) after our power plants, making it damn near impossible to have them operate.
|This president MADE me an alcoholic.|
Don't plants like KALE (Michelle Obama's favorite food source) need CO2 to SURVIVE.
|This presidents gives me a headache!|
|Even CHILDREN can figure THIS one out.|
|Community-Activism in action.|
They need carbon dioxide, and we give them that...don't see an issue with that.
But, if we were to "starve" plant life and our trees with LESS CO2...then what (besides less kale)?
This buffoon-in-chief cannot find ENOUGH ways to take our minds and resources from the problems that REALLY matter.
He's the type of guy that would bitch when his bank account is overdrawn (due to reckless spending), and he boldly says:
"That can't be true...I STILL have checks left in my checkbook".
Whatta freaking moron .
Go back to Kenya, stay THERE, and stop THEIR greenhouse gases.
*** Next up, what happens when you cut down several trees and then leave the cut wood in front of the SE side property?
"get cited by Neighborhood Code Enforcement"...sorry, wrong answer.
But, if you said "create some play toys for the locals' children by welfare baby-mama", then YOU win the gold star.
|Wez jus rollin dem logs.|
(for what, you ask?)
For something we like to call "AUXILIARY SEATING". when he have a fire pit out back (and too close to a house per fire codes).
|That's SUPPOSED to be a DRIVEWAY, idiots.|
If there is a way NOT to do something, rest assured that THESE "people" will find a way to DO it.
Guess it's never too early to start showing the kids HOW to be an idiot.
*** Last back to the patio...got to see a great full moon over the weekend - a "blue moon" in fact (second of a given month).
|Sorry...best the camera could do at full zoom|
Wifey and I "tag-teamed" calls to the FWPD for loud music (44LM ) at a nearby house...only took a few HOURS to shut them up...not a good sign when it comes to "customer service" from our city and it's police department, is it?
|The black-eyed Susan's are out.|
|Wrinkles on the fence|
|And our little bunny buddy|
But, as with all things, that could change at any time (unlike the demeanor of this part of the ghettohood).
Makes you long for days when people were a lot more civil...and respectful...and not prone to violence at the drop of a hat (that was never worn backwards unless they were the catcher for a ball club).
Well, in order to have a clear conscience and sleep at night (as the noise allows), yes...it is.
When you're brought up with certain values, beliefs, and ethics, it's like learning to ride a bicycle - you never forget how to do it, even if you get a tad rusty from time to time.
Yes, it is worth it...even if it doesn't always seem like it.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
