Feeling a lot more like fall outside too, isn't it? We even have a "frost advisory" until 0800 hrs today. Won't be long before we're shoveling snow (again).
Our Hoosierland weather will have us with sunny skies and a high today somewhere into only the mid-60s. No rain or gusty winds predicted.
Now, let's get this gig rolling, as we get outrselves that cup or glass of Friday Fortitude, and see what else has (and will be) going on elsewhere...
*** First out of the tool shed, we kick things off with our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature.
OCTOBER 14 -
---Today is NATIONAL DESSERT DAY
---And, it's BE BALD AND BE FREE DAY
*** Since we are at week's end, let's see what is going on in the 48 hours following today...
OCTOBER 15 -
---Saturday is National Aesthetician Day, National cheese Curd Day, National I Love Lucy Day, National Grouch Day (a personal favorite of mine lately), National Latino AIDS Awareness Day, National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day, National White Cane Safety Day, and National Sweetness Day.
OCTOBER 16 -
---Sunday is National Liqueur Day, National Dictionary Day, National Feral Cat Day, and Department Store Day.
(sorry about the brevity here, but I am using a different system for the next few days).
*** Next up, and JUST in time for the impending winter season, there's THIS story:
|What? No Vaseline to go with this?|
I'm sure that global warming has something to do with this ((snicker)).
*** Next, the city parks board has a burr under it's saddle. Here's the story:
|Hey, we've been THERE.|
|Haven't been there yet.|
*** Next up, Bob Dylan is awarded a NOBEL PRIZE?
Momma Fargo told me about this.
What the hell FOR?
Gimme a break.
I could see DYLAN THOMAS getting a Nobel...
And look who presents the award...none other than "Mr I got a Nobel for Doing Nothing" himself - da prez aka Obummer. Lots of nothing there.
A PEACE prize for a counter-culture musician...yeah, sure.
That works for me. NOT!
*** Next, and since both the J-G and N-S websites are acting up, we're looking elsewhere for news, like HERE:
LEOS were shot, but the suspect was killed. Again, this was another "domestic" that was more than it seemed, as many of them are.
*** Next up, and, of course, there has to be some TNB tossed in regarding another story:
HUNG THE HELL UP on thousands of callers has been formally charged.
Crenshanda WIlliams, 43, is only being charged with misdemeanor\ interference with emergency calls (damn shame).
I guess her "catch-phrase" was: "Ain't nobody got time for this. For real.". Wait until SHE ever needs police and (should) get a similar treatment. I hope every other dispatcher hangs the hell up on HER from now on. She earned that much by placing lives at risk.
*** Next, Anyone getting as PO'ed as I am over Obummer and his wife mouthing off about Trump?
|STFU and STFD|
Okay, there is AUDIO of his locker-room mouth...typical male behavior when they're with other males.
But what about Rev. Wright, the pastor that the Obamas knew for decades and attended HIS church while he spouted out (and has been videoed) God Damn America, along with other slurs against our nation?
How soon people seem to FORGET about that one.
Sure got one helluva double-standard working with these leftist morons, don't we?
What's posted about Trump is more hearsay than anything else, and I'm not defending him - just pointing out reality from fantasy here.
*** Next, and changing gears, it's once again time for another chapter in "The Hobo Chronicles"...
|Oh, we're playing later? Tell me more."|
Since taking pictures is limited (I have found one roundabout way to upload them and resize them, so they're somewhat easier to store), I missed taking some pics of him jumping at some tall grass Wifey and I were shaking at him yesterday afternoon.
|"You people are crazy, but I like you."|
*** Last back to the repair bay...if there is one thing that every person should WANT to do, it's THE RIGHT THING.
These days, we're just not seeing all that much of this, are we? People have become content to let whatever happens...happen.
(well, there are those rare times that galvanize people into becoming united, but it's usually some God-awful tragedy that causes such a change of heart)
Used to be a time when more people did what was right, even if it was unpopular, or meant sacrifice, or perhaps more. That's what two world wars were fought over.
Do we need ANOTHER such apocalypse to bring us together?
God, I sure hope not. I'd like to believe we're better than that.
It has to be the lack of morality and compassion that drives such a society's "ambition".
When morality is lost, there can be only hope.
This isn't to say we're totally done for...not yet, anyway. But time will eventually run out.
There has to be a change in how people think, and how they believe,. and how they decide to practice something we call FAITH.
It's been said that faith can move mountains.
I'd settle for moving people to motivate themselves for a better society again...and a better nation...and, a better future.
Do have a good weekend.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
