Tuesday Tidbits...
The tundra comes in a few months.
It's going to be another spectacular day, weather-wise out here in the Midwest.
In fact, most of the week will see a close similarity to the last couple previous days.
Our Hoosierland weather today will have us enjoying a slightly warmer day than yesterday with temps reaching into the MID-70s, but the mornings will want you to grab a sweater or jacket.
And, if you look carefully at the trees, you'll notice the slight beginnings of some color changes. Some are swapping out their summer greenery for autumn hues, and considering that tomorrow starts the FALL season, it sure makes sense.
Now, let's all get ourselves that nice morning drink nearby as we look to this day and all the things that are going on elsewhere.
*** First off of the hat-rack is our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
(and we've got a slew of them, so hold on tight)
September 22 -
(Don't suppose there's THAT many commemorating THIS one, right?)
(as long as it's chocolate, it can be purple or plaid)
(better be something like ice cream IN that damn cone!)
---And, it's also AKC Responsible Dog Ownership Day
We all know that anyone who can't handle a DOG, should not be having children...lol.
---It's also American Business Women’s Day
Nothing wrong with a WOMAN WHO MEANS BUSINESS, right?
---And, it's Car Free Day
(to the locals they think it means FREE CAR DAY, so thefts will no doubt be UP)
---It's also Dear Diary Day
(This blog is my diary of sorts)
---And, it's Elephant Appreciation Day
(Why NOT appreciate a creature than can crush you with ONE foot?)
---It's Hobbit Day
(I'm holding out for PALADIN, RANGER, or ELVES DAY)
---It's the International Day of Radiant Peace
(What's the difference between RADIANT peace and WORLD peace?)
---And it's National Woman Road Warrior Day – Fourth Tuesday in September
(Mad Max beware...you got competition)
---It's also National Voter Registration Day – Fourth Tuesday in September
(illegals and refugees take note - the democrats want you!)
*** Next up is our salute to ALL the effin idiots who would not know what it means to be a RESPONSIBLE gun owner if it shot them in their ass (and probably will sooner than later).

*** Next up, remember when I said yesterday that there were NO shootings over the weekend, and that it would not be long before the morons were back in the swing of things?
Well, yesterday afternoon, there was a SHOOTING, and here's the story link:
This took place at the Cap N Cork liquor store located at 604 E. Lewis St (a lor closer to downtown than out "king" would prefer, I;ll bet), around 1245 Hrs when a disturbance call went out.
when police arrived, they found one person in the store in critical condition from a gunshot wound.
No employees were shot, so it had to have been a "patron".
What's odd is that a couple other men were in that store at the time, so it makes sense that one of THEM pulled the trigger (and fled).
Police later detained a car matching a description of a vehicle leaving the scene as well as a man who was seen running from the store.
He was found bleeding from his head, but his injuries were not life-threatening.
Police later served a warrant at an apartment located in the 800 block of Dolphin Drive and after a several-hour standoff, arrested one Homer T. RIchards, 53 as the suspect in the shooting. He faces a charge of aggravated battery.
*** Next up, Sharpton comes to town (and leaves, thank God).
Here's this story:
Wow, two hundred people were stupid enough to sit and listen to Sharpton...that;'s FEWER that I would have thought...LOL.
Still, there was a smattering of TRUTH to a little of what Rev. Al had to say, like when he mentioned that "...when you drive throughout this part of Fort Wayne (SE side) all you see are GAS STATIONS."
(sure beats that "counter-tourism" he spoke about a while back...heh)
What the hell have I sad about that years ago?
We have MORE gas stations (plus convenience and liquor stores) per square mile AND per capita HERE on the SE side, than any other TWO quadrants...and WHY is that?
(no one seems to know)
The REAL reason Sharpton was here was to start a BRANCH of his NATIONAL ACTION NETWORK, because he feels we "need it".
Yeah, like we need holes drilled in our heads to let the mush out.
Now, the NAN has a history going back to the early 90s (when Crack hit the streets - what a coincidence) and here's the skinny on it:
And here is their own website:
Them's the people behind that crock of racial BS.
The WIKI exposes some of the "causes" (read controversies( this "not for profit" agency has gone after.
And it might open your eyes to the TRUTH...(always a good thing)
Oh, look..."Besties" (that can't be good)
Maybe if the Rev and HIS flock would attune themselves to obeying authority and stop trying to make thiuer people MORE equal than everyone else, they might be able to get their heads out of their asses, the sand, and the 1960s.
The ONLY "civil rights" issue pertaining to them are the new shackles they have placed on THEMSELVES, thanks to leftist rhetoric and the liberal agenda, which has netted black Americans nothing in over 50 years.
Start doing for YOURSELVES, rather than demanding that others do it for you.
*** Last back to the stables...there should come a time in everyone's life when they come to the realization that the old saying holds true:
Thank you, Ben...words to live by.
And that's NOT to imply that they should help themselves to OTHER peoples' stuff at no cost.
But, some people have yet to learn some basic premises.
Granted that "outside" influences can determine one's course of action 9or inaction), but what goes on outside should not become the driving and determining force for what takes place INSIDE a person.
We don't larn by osmosis...we learn by OBSERVING, and LISTENING, and DOING, and ASKING.
And whenever we ASK a question, the only expectation should be the TRUTH.
When tat isn't forthcoming, we may want to reconsider those we have asked or better still, know that some are incapable of the truth, and only want to obscure that which you seek.
Evil does not have to carry a sickle, wanting to harvest all the bad in the world...
It will often take an innocent form, in order to confuse many, and THAT is where we have to be on guard.
Times such as those, we find that helping OURSELVES yields more than a dependency on others, even if THEY should be the ones who are supposed to be helping us.
When faced with doubt along these lines, always look WITHIN first. Seek a higher authority, and trust in that.
Our nation and her people once embraced such things, and we did very well as a society, but when we handed over parts of our lives that WE once took care of, we lost something, and we see the results of our slothfulness.
Time to change that and get back on the right path, before it's too late.
Be well, make a difference to someone, and...
Stay SAFE out there, America.

"...need a jacket..." Bah, I no need no steenking jacket!

Oh, yeah, white chocolate and ice cream cone days... they sure know how to hurt a feller!

American business woman's day... where do you pick one up?

Elephant Appreciation? I bet the hobbits don't care for THAT one. At least, not the flattened ones...

I'll pass on the woman road warrior day... Laurie's enough stronger than me!

Sharpton came to town and left.. and did not avail himself of any of the Forts best free bullets? Shame, that.

Bob G. said...

I don;t create these days...I just post them.
Not my fault about the sweets.

Probably find one at some American business?

Hadn't thought about how a HOBBIT would appreciate those elephants (not after Return of the King, anyway)

Laurie is YOUR road warrior...awesome!

I know...Sharpton should have stopped by Cap N Cork on Lewis St for a bottle of courvoisier.
Find the right guy and he'd STEAL it for 'ya too, Rev.

LOL...Thanks for stopping by and making some smiles here by commenting.

Stay safe up there, brother.
