Humpday Happenings...
Welcome to that wonderful mid-week crisis we refer to as WEDNESDAY.
And, hopefully, the weather will be a tad less "eventful" as it was yesterday.
Yes, that WAS the clap of thunder you heard more than a few times yesterday in the Heartland.
We had some thunderstorms move through...in January.
Beats a foot and a half of snow any day, right?
Our Hoosierland weather for today will see us with a bit of patchy morning fog  in rural areas, so take note.
And, it'll be more sunny and less breezy than yesterday (thank goodness), with a chance of (maybe) a stray shower following us into the evening, with our high being whatever the temps are outside this morning.
They're calling it around 45 degrees for the day.
It's one of those "reverse temps" thing...getting colder as the day progresses. so take a coat with you...you'll need it later on when we get back into the chill of things.
Now, with that over with, let's see what awaits us after we get ourselves a nice refreshing and soothing morning drink, shall we?
*** First out of the laundry chute is our "WHO SAID THAT?" quote of the week:
"Presumption should never make us neglect that which appears easy to us, nor despair make us lose courage at the sight of difficulties."
Believe this or not, this is not as recent a quote as you might think, yet it sounds just as appropriate as if it were, and it pertains to something going on this month. There is a "theme" attached to it.
So who said it anyway?
The answer at the top of tomorrow's post.
Meanwhile, back at the Maryland Historical Society...
*** Next up is our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
February 3 -
Here  the WIKI for the info:
As you might expect if you're NOT a young'un, this deals with the death of the Big Bopper, Richie Valens and Buddy Holly in a small-airplane crash which took place near Clear Lake, Iowa in 1959. The pilot, Roger Peterson also died in the crash. This event was much of Don McLean's song: American Pie.
(best way to eat carrots...in a CAKE!)
*** Next up, some vandals desecrate the deceases near the "Fortress".
Here's the story:
Can't even let the DEAD rest in peace down here
This took place in the Jewish cemetery, located at 6224 Decatur Rd sometime after January 7. when caretakers were last on site. About 60 headstones were toppled, and some cracked and damaged,
A few of the stones would require more than ONE person to topple them, as well.
Now, there is a "government-sponsored" housing complex VERY close by, and it would not surprise me if some ethnics living there had something to do with it.
Right across Decatur Rd, in fact.
The gates are always locked and only those who have business (like a funeral or visit to a grave) are permitted inside, so, it's not "open" to the public.
No graffiti or markings were found, so investigators with the FWPD believe this was not aimed at the Jewish community.
That's funny, because it's a JEWISH cemetery, and the ONLY people buried there are...(surprise)...JEWISH!
Maybe we need to look into gang activity, and I don't necessarily mean skinheads, if you get my drift.
*** Next up, another shooting, and this time right NEAR where Charlie Benson was captured...imagine that.
Here's the story link:
This took place around 2000 hrs last night near Hanna and Lewis Sts, but police found a man in a car suffering from a gunshot wound at Anthony Blvd and Maumee Ave,
The person (gender not mentioned) was taken to hospital in serious condition with a wound to the arm.
*** Next, here's a story of a robber who waited for the right moment (and person):
This took place at the STAR financial Bank branch located at 127 W. Berry St (right near DOWNTOWN, folks) yesterday around 1630 hrs Monday.
(I cleaned the video capture up as best as I could)
This guy just waltzes on, grabs a deposit bag off the counter from a woman, and flees the bank.
He was spotted fleeing east on Berry St.
No weapon was mentioned in the story.
Don't even need a note these days or a gun.
Walk right in...and get some free money. You can bet there was NO dye-pack in a deposit envelope, either (damn).
*** Next up, two pieces of white trash were busted for drugs on the SOUTHEAST side of the city.
Here's the story link:
(see, we have ALL flavors of perps down here, don't we? - a problem the city can't or won't address.)
This took place as a raid at a house located at 4100 block of Robinwood Drive around 1900 hrs last evening.
Taken into custody were Damien Cross, 35, and Stephen Reed, 28.
Damien Cross                Stephen Reed
In the story are the charges listed against them (losers).
*** Next, a standoff brings out the FWPD armored car for a dust-off.
Here's the story:
How 'bout that, Sarge. The perp was really THERE..
At least THIS guy was HOME for a change (even if it wasn't his OWN home, but his brother's).
The standoff netted one Jason Beam, arrested  for felony intimidation.
Moral to the story: Never overstay your welcome at a relative's house...with a knife.
*** Last back to the dry cleaners... above are some prime examples of totally useless people.
The choices they made placed them in the situations they found themselves, so there's really no other blame to be meted out here, except to those making such craptastic decisions.
Just ONE decision made differently (and a lot more positively) could have produced a much better outcome for ALL of these stories, but, like I say, it's easier to do the wrong thing than the right thing for some folks.
Many times, "the RIGHT thing and the HARD thing are the SAME thing" (Dr. Steve Maraboli), and yes, that requires a conscious effort to make that happen.
Some mental work required there, but many people have clocked out for the day on that one.
The rest of us usually do it without a second thought.
Must be the way we're brought up.
Or, it can be that commitment to a "higher authority".
Whatever the case may be, it doesn't take much to see WHY people fail society and fail themselves, does it?
Yet, we're supposed to think that it's somehow OUR fault, and I refuse to take blame for the lack of intelligence and understanding by others.
Got enough on my plate as it is, without excess baggage that some leftard wants to make MY own.
Not gonna happen here.
A return to all those basic values we remember as children is what's needed for these others who seek chaos instead of civility.
Humanity has been around too long NOT to be able to figure that out, right?
Be well, make a difference to someone, and...
Stay SAFE out there, America.

First off (and off topic): I just heard that new BBC streaming won't have anything you can get new on BBC America. So NO Doctor Who backissuing. How can a network that produces such great shows be such utter morons? (uh, Chris, NBC, ABC, ...) I mean hell, why not then leave the archives on fricking Netflix so SOMEBODY might have a chance to watch? They must be Liberals- this is an excellent job of chopping off one's nose to spite one's face.

Ahem. We move on.

Did get the thunder and lightning yesterday, and did manage to survive the absence of coatery this afternoon.

The grave thing sounds like another kiddie thug initiation thing. It's a shame they will grow up to be idiots that will never notice how stupid they look and act until they meet their Maker.

And the following crime stories seem to need no different comment. How do they put up with living such useless lives?

It will be fun at the Judgement, though- these idiots are so non copus mentes (or something like that) that when Jesus looks over the edge of the Book down at them and says, "I never knew you", they'll look around with one finger up their nose and say, "Who's that guy?"

--If these buttwipes CAN screw something (good) up...they invariably WILL find a way. They SHOULD have some sort of "archive" of past eps someplace.


--I know. We lived near lots of cemeteries...never bothered "anyone"...didn't want to receive any retribution "from beyond".

--Pitiful lives, and I use that plural form of "life" VERY loosely.
SO much more to bother oneself with...much of it quite PRODUCTIVE.
I'd pay to see that...oh, wait, someone ALREADY paid for that.
Goes by the name of JESUS (and not "heyzeus")

Thanks for stopping by to comment.

Stay safe up there, brother._

The destruction of grave stones makes me very sad. Hope they catch them and hold them responsible. Who does things like that? Who raised them? Did anyone care enough to instill any respect in them at all? The parents should be punished as well IMHO. I am here in Paradise waiting for snow.. Sigh.. stay safe up there Bobby G.

I don't know If I'm more sad or just plain pissed off at such desecration.
Combination of both perhaps.
I agree that since the problem stems from what passes for "parenting" these days, we have to make the parents every bit AS accountable.
We will stay as safe as we can.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and comment today.

Stay safe down there, dear.
