Well, we have a bit of a warm-up tomorrow, then early next week, we're back into the freezer.
And to think that we're not even "officially" into winter yet (next Wednesday, kids).
Our Hoosierland weather for today finds us shivering our nether-regions off once again with cloudy skies (aww, liked seeing the sun yesterday), temps inching their way up to around 23 degrees and some late afternoon/evening snow moving in (couple inches further north, and maybe just a dusting south), with a touch of freezing rain overnight (joy). Should make grocery shopping tomorrow "interesting".
A damn shame I don't have a Vibranium shield I can use as a SNOW-DISC.
|Gotta take a break from saving the world.|
Now, let's get that piping hot cup of coffee, tea, or cocoa poured and parked nearby as we see what's been going on elsewhere...

*** Next up, what say we take some time to get the STUPID out of the way before we move on, hmm?
|You tell 'em, Duke.|
Two perps were arrested in connection with a wrongful murder on Avondale Drive back in September.
Kahmarri Spencer, 18 is being charged with murder, while Trevon Sullivan, 21 is charged with aiding in a murder. Effin' LOSERS!
|Kahmarri Spencer Trevon Sullivan|
I love what the (white) neighbor had to say, and he's 100% right.
These two sorry sacks of shit DON'T deserve to be free on ANY street in THIS country.
Here's another account with some interesting sidebars:
|Anton Jovan Moore|
Anton Moore was 30. And a nice picture of him as well.
Now THIS person might have been the gang member Spencer was trying to originally target, unless someone got the intended victim wrong again.
And the BEST part - NO BOND for the two arrested!
---This story just makes me laugh, because it never had to happen:
Affordable Care Act...nothing "affordable" about it for everyone who saw their healthcare premiums SKYROCKET.
(seemed to be a hallmark of the Obummer administration, along with all the other deceit and blatant lies).
EVERYONE, because people will not go without ANY care.
The Hippocratic Oath automatically takes care of that, so bite it.
---Here's a followup story about the Marathon robber who got caught yesterday:
Police found $83 bucks in a plastic bag along with an AIRSOFT pistol behind a business along State Blvd. An airsoft pistol...ROFL!
The story erroneous says the pistol looked like an AUTOMATIC handgun...
Will you morons PLEASE get this shit STRAIGHT...it's a SEMI-automatic handgun, and most airsoft pistols are SPRING-action, which means you have to manually cock the pistol for each shot...cripes almighty!
Take some damn time to LEARN the facts before you write the frigging story.
*** Next up and getting away from such nonsense... well, my feet are on the mend. It was a bit easier to get around yesterday, and that was a godsend, I can now limp FASTER...LOL.
|Damn fine footwear.|
Best shoe to wear in ANY weather (that doesn't have a steel toe). Good cop shoe!
And I made it out and back from the mailbox without incident. I will confess that getting over that frozen berm at curbside was still touch and go for me. Didn't want a repeat of Wednesday, that's for sure. And trying to NOT let anyone outside see my limp was indeed a challenge. You grit your teeth, work through the aching pain, and keep on going.
It should not be a problem driving tomorrow, if conditions permit.
Like I said, I can get around, but I'm not running in any damn race for a while.
*** Next up, let's see what's going on at "Kitten Corner"...
|Hey, there's LOTSA food in HERE, too!|
|That bottle cap JUMPED off the counter!|
How that fascinates them...I have no idea.
I moved the meds, as they were also disturbed, and I have to make sure that bottom cabinet lazy-Susan is CLOSED, otherwise, one of them will crawl into the damn thing.
Aside from those little issues, nothing bad to speak of, except for one small piddle "accident" on the hallway carpet. I cleaned that up straight away and chided them both for not using the litter pan, which they have always done since they came here last month.
No problem with appetites, either, which is good, considering one of the side-effects of the medication can be a loss of appetite. How can you put it in their food is they don't want to eat (?) was my question, but so far, no problem.
We'll cross that bridge if and when we get to it.
|I iz all played out.|
*** Last back to the igloo...in this cold weather, I can't help but be concerned for pet owners looking for a lost dog or cat.
I still wonder about Hobo, especially over the past several days, and hope that he found a real home, and that someone took him inside, and that he's NOT exposed to the bitter chill.
|I will never stop missing you, buddy.|
I view the "Lost Cats of Fort Wayne" website, and my heart breaks for those who have an empty bowl in their home, because their cat is missing. More troubling still, are accounts of people contacting Animal Care and Control for a cat found dead along a city street or road. That could have been someone's pet, perhaps a little boy or girl's.
If only a lot more people were half as kind and caring to one another as many are to their pets, this planet wouldn't be in as much of a fix as it finds itself today.
Lord knows It's the right season for giving...and caring...and for sharing.
Perhaps we could even start a trend; one which would have far lasting effects towards the betterment of all, no matter how many feet they might possess.
Do have yourselves a good weekend.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
