Seems we're starting out with some fog, and apparently enough of it to cause school delays.
Well, it's not that dense where I cannot see any of the neighbor's houses...damn it!
(the less I see of them, the better...lol)
Our Hoosierland weather for the rest of the day will find us with mostly cloudy skies, a chance of showers during the day and a high of around 82 degrees (where's the damn cool down?).
So, what say we kick things off with our favorite refreshing drink, as we see what else has been going on since yesterday, hmm?
*** First out of the lighthouse is our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:

There you have it...stay out of trouble and behave yourselves.
*** Next up, it would appear that all this riverfront development is moving ahead at break-neck speed. Damn the torpedoes time?
JUST in the planning phase, and that nothing was etched in stone yet?
Here's the latest story:
We trying to be Sydney, Australia now?
This is looking more like a "done deal" in this city, and the best we can do for the SE side is dump more "affordable housing" here...whatta joke.
*** Next, the airshow takes place tomorrow and Sunday here in Fort Wayne.
I've seen the static displays before, didn't like the price of the food concessions, and wore myself out walking about, but it was still kinda fun, because I didn't have to be "shuttled" uptown to downtown and back again like THIS year.
Also, I was able to park just outside the ANG base on the grass, and that wasn't a bother coming OR going, unlike THIS time around, where I would have to find parking downtown (where other events are also taking place).
Sorry, but this year has all the making of a minor clusterf*ck. Plus, the weather tomorrow would not be amicable to the "high-ceiling" show put on by the USAF's Thunderbirds.
*** Next, Sunday is the annual Monarch Festival out at Eagle Marsh, and that will be worth taking in with Wifey.
I just hope they decide to do the parking like last year when they lined us all up along Engle Rd.
That was not a problem at all..plus, we might get a few flyovers from the FW airport (from the aforementioned airshow).
*** Next up, the nest chapter in "The Hobo Chronicles"...
As yesterday was one soggy-ass day, there was little to do except try and avoid getting soaked.
So, it was back to the "bin-shelter" for food.
While I was outside, we even got our own "airshow" with some of the Thunderbirds doing low-level flying over the "Fortress".
They tend to move faster than the A-10s, and are a lot louder, so you know they're coming.
At least today's fog didn't make finding Hobo harder...I just home-in on his meows...lol.
*** Last back to the fog-bank...nice to see the natives not AS restless as they typically are...for a change.
|When in doubt...get CHUCK!|
Now, when you attend an event like the monarch gig or the airshow, you don't find such morons at those things.
|Well, we know YOU don't.|
(neither of which are "white things", so we can't toss out a race card here...sorry)
With all the time such people seem to have on their primate paws, you'd think they could spend some of it doing something CONstructive, rather than DEstructive, but that's not often the case with these morons.
Taking their kids to something good just isn't on their to-do list, unless there are some giveaways or free food and drink...THAT they will attend (and every time, too). It's that whole entitlement mindset at work again.
Maybe they could try something a bit different...like being entitled to MOTIVATE THEMSELVES to do better for themselves AND their offspring. Now there's a good idea, hmm? Well, we all ARE entitled to that, right?
Regular people know the value of personal entitlements, and also know those who pursue all the grandiose "gub'ment giveaways" that many are so fond of gobbling up like a starving person in a soup kitchen.
The entitlement-driven leech off of those who express compassion for others, as well as from the government.
That's a nasty habit to get into, and an even worse situation to extricate oneself from (it's so damn comfortable), right?
It becomes just another addiction for them, rather than something approaching a "passion", and does nothing to elevate them from their current place in life. It only perpetuates it, and in many cases, generationally.
We, as a nation can do SO much better than that, and we should, if the liberals among us would stop and see the damage they've done and continue to do to these people.
Until that changes, we're on our own for the time being, as it were.
But, at least we're secure in the knowledge that we're moving forward in OUR lives.
Have yourselves a good weekend.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
