And again, it's better at night when the temps drop BELOW 70 degrees, isn't it?
Our Hoosierland weather for today will have us with mostly sunny skies (keep the sunglasses handy), and temps once again trying to cross that 90-degree mark. So much for that all-too-brief "cool-down", right?
Now, join me in getting a nice morning drink to chase the cobwebs out of the old body, as we see what's been going on elsewhere...
*** First out of the pet-carrier is our WHO SAID THAT? quote of the week:
"The accomplice to the crime of corruption is frequently our own indifference".
We never seek to clean out everything that's been swept under the rug these days...
We just keep getting larger rugs.
So, WHO said that?
The answer at the top of tomorrow's post.
Meanwhile, back at the I've Got A Secret studio set...
*** Next up, we bring you the "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
JULY 27 -
---Today is NATIONAL SCOTCH DAY
Might have to have m'self a wee dram or two.
---And, it's NATIONAL:CREME BRULEE DAY
*** Next, Wifey came home, none the less for wear.
|De bin done got shot? Oh, ma babay!|
He didn't even look as he ran damn near in front of her.
Luckily, she wasn't going more than 5 MPH (as she approached the garage), so absolutely NO damage to the Silver Streak at all.
Oh, and the kid got a taste of "wise the hell up" in the process.
|Docking complete, Houston.|
*** Next, another installment of "What in the world has Bob been purchasing on eBay?"
Well, it took several tries, (and a couple refunds) but I finally got another action figure.
UP), so I think I snagged a deal getting mine for $14.88 (free shipping).
Sometimes, you gotta grab that bargain, right? I think it was worth the wait.
Now...for the Figuarts Cap from Bandai (which goes for around $50 or more...but, Christmas is coming, you know...hint, hint to the Missus). Hey, it is cheaper than another handgun.
DREAM figure is the HOT TOYS 12 inch version...totally fantastic...and expensive (over $100 bucks).
|Oh, to have THIS figure.|
*** Next up, in spite of the heat, the plants and flowers are doing well enough.
|Hibiscus gone wild!|
|"Tweak" is getting braver by the day.|
|Damn near FOUR feet tall.|
*** Next, and speaking of critters, there is this cat that has come by our back door. Why , I have NO idea, except that animals and I must have an affinity to one another (blame St. Francis). It's a cute cat too...damn cute, in fact.
And, it's FRIENDLY. I tried to coax it out of our yard last night...no dice.
|"Great...another mouth to feed ((yawn))"|
Okay, you convinced me about the "cute" thing. Didn't get a picture (yet), but when and if I do, you'll see what I'm talking about. We may try to "capture" it in our pet carrier and then call Animal Care and Control to pick it up, so it can get a proper home with some folks that will take better care of it. If we didn't have Rassie, I'd take it in, get it vet-checked and bathed (for fleas and such) and keep the little bugger. It's obviously been in some other home at some point.
Haven't seen anything about a lost cat, but knowing that people move way and ditch their pets does not surprise me around here.
*** Next, (and to get this out of the way as fast as possible) Billy (Big-Mac) Clinton was extolling the "virtues" ((...ahem!...)) of Her Bitchness last night at the DNC.
MST3K along with HIS speech. Funny thing, he left out ALL the bullshit and bad things in her tenure as Sec. of State (and prior)...wonder why? Not a mention about possible indictments for improprieties and deleted emails and hacked servers. Maybe Bill doesn't have Alzheimer's...just a touch of "Partheimers" Disease? Selective omission. Yeah, that's it.
*** Next, how many times have I mentioned ALL the "stuff" we now have in our vehicles, and how we really need to get rid of some, if not most ot it?
|Cripes, even K.I.T.T. didn't have this much crap.|
Well, someone must be listening, for I found an article that specifically tells the tale.
Here's the link:
This deals with "performance" issues, and not those ghetto-rims and "bling" the locals trick their sleds out with, so let's make that distinction.
|And the sooner, the better.|
10) Painted brake calipers
(for those who WISH they had a Lamborghini)
9) Driving around without a hood
(that's illegal in a lot of areas)
8) Racy parts for no reason
(who needs a 5-point seatbelt in the family sedan, unless you're teaching your teen to drive?
7) Awkward shifters
(Even the Silver Streak has one. The Batmobile as an old t-handle w/ a button to engage it...simple enough)
6) Infinite adjustability
(Wifey's 2.0 has such things..."personalization" they call it. It's PERSONAL when I'm behind the damn wheel.)
5) Fake exhaust tips
(even the ghettofleas use these on their donks...looks like the crap they drive, too)
4) Phony performance badges
(don't call a car what it's not...period. You don' need no steekin badges)
3) Fake engine sounds
(remember when I said that Ford was doing this through the stereo system? BUSTED!)
2) Showy spoilers.
(Latinos LOVE these "whale-tails". Mine on the Batmobile IS functional., suck it, bitches!)
1) Gauge overload
Wifey's car has SO many warning lights and crap that diverts your attention. I have TWO proper gauges on the Batmobile - speedometer and gas gauge. That's all you REALLY need.
*** Last back to the garage...whatever gets the most attention is the most attention-getting.
SO damn true.
Think about it. The election cycle, that is. It's all about what gets YOUR attention.
The leftards parade out ALL these celebs, for we know Hollywood and the pop-music industry is replete with lock-stepping , Marxist-loving, socialists. And they all LOVE anything that is NOT conservative. Their lifestyles mirror that much.
So, THEY get your attention, because they live an attention-getting life, right?
And the low-information crowd follows like lemmings off a cliff.
This would make a stranger "think" the libtards are more POPULAR with the people, because they have so many "popular" people at their convention.
One thing you HAVE to understand about elections...it should NEVER come down to any sort of "popularity contest". But, sadly, it has become just that.
|Welcome to the world of politics.|
No one takes the time to scratch the surface and dig for the truth.
Nobody wants to get dirt under their fingernails these days.
|I can roll with this.|
Charisma and popularity...worked well for Stalin...and Mao (and all the rest in that crowd).
Didn't work out all that well for their own people...or the rest of the world.
Yeah, sometimes we find out that history can be a cruel teacher, but no one ever said that knowledge was gleaned through osmosis, right?
Stay SAFE out there, America.
