"Fortress". I hope yours was better.
Nothing like starting a week with a "Monday from Hell", is there? We'll get into that shortly.
We've some interesting things staring at us today from the abyss.
Our Hoosierland weather will consist of mostly cloudy skies, temps reaching to around 56 degrees and no real precipitation for the time being. Well, you can't have everything.
So, let's get that morning cup of coffee, tea, or cocoa made and parked close by, as we see what else is going on, shall we?
*** First out of the junk drawer is our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
MARCH 28 -
---It's National Black Forest Cake Day
---It's National Something On A Stick Day
---It's National Weed Appreciation Day
LAST things I appreciate...and dread every year)
---It's National American Diabetes Association Alert Day
*** Next up, and because it IS a Tuesday, let's see all the crime that took place last week that we SHOULD have been made aware of, but were not.

FIREWORKS CALLS 03/20 - 03/26 - NONE.
Wow, I can hardly believe that.
*** Next, we have a double shooting - suicide that took place last evening. Here's the story:
SUV around 2100 hrs in the 900 block of Kensington Ave. Police found one dead and the other died at hospital shortly after.
Police were led to a male suspect in a house on Pemberton (one block east) and after trying to contact the man, made entry and found him dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Look for this to be homicides number 5 and 6.
*** Next, a former perp (featured here, naturally) gets arrested once AGAIN. Here's the story:
Feel free to reference my archive post of 12 July 2011 for that story.
This time, after a police chase, where the perp (driving a 2007 maroon Mustang) backed INTO a patrol cruiser, police took Norris into custody (he has a history of resisting), and found a loaded and charged AK-style "pistol" on the seat of the car he was driving. He also has a history of carrying firearms without permits and being a felon in possession of firearms.
That's some serious firepower he was packing., Had a 100-round snail drum magazine and is a 7.65 mm cartridge.
*** Next up, the Bowser buildings get the heave-ho. Here's the story link:
SE side are unable to be "re-purposed", but you can take similar structures elsewhere in the city and redevelop THOSE. Must be all the CRIME that's a major deterrent, right?
(concerned residents like myself know the truth that rarely is forthcoming)
*** Next up, remember the loudass TRIKEY-BOY from last year?
|Last year's model|
|Looks like a new (loud) set of wheels.|
I'm trying to find someone I can contact in the city who can get him to turn that the hell down. I can't hear our TV inside our house, and he sure as hell can't hear any car coming up on him, even if he has rear-view mirrors on his trike.
He's a nuisance as long as that music can be heard in excess of 30 feet, and he runs the risk of getting hit by a speeding vehicle (with such assholes around here, I can only hope). Yeah, that's not nice to say, but a lesson has to be learned, and maybe he'll learn it the HARD way.
*** Next up, and if that wasn't enough to screw up an otherwise calm day, Wifey lost a contact lens in the damn bathroom right before bedtime.
ONCE, but she promptly lost it again, when it popped off her finger. Where it went after that is anyone's guess. Didn't go down the drain (it had the plug in already), and we checked the vanity top, floor, anywhere it could have flown, jumped, or fallen. The cats came in, and if it stuck to their foot pads, it could have wound up anyplace by now.
Well, to that I say next time, have a SPARE pair...just in case (like I have with my glasses).
*** Next, and speaking of our cats, let's drop by "Kitten Corner"...
|"I'm looking for birdies, daddy".|
|Waiting for "mommy" to come home.|
*** Last back to the family room...I admit that I don't want any sort of "exciting life".
I guess the old acronym K.I.S.S. works well here (Keep It Simple, Stupid...lol).
I'm one of those "home-bodies" that enjoys the comfort of being at home most of the time.
So, you can imagine how bothersome it is when I can't seem to ENJOY "Homestead Heights".
When total assholes have nothing to do but annoy the hell out of people like me, and for no damn reason, other than they CAN get away with it, I have a problem with that.
|Trying my damnedest.|
The people that I mention here, who cause problems in our part of the city are the ones to blame.
I'm just trying to live MY life, and not be set upon by the lives of others that are a constant intrusion.
So, if I go on a rant about these lowlife, son of a bitch scum-baggers now and then, know that it is with a GOOD reason.
And, if people choose to ignore reason, they have already lost a big part of their lives.
I don't plan to follow suit.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
