I will say our area's been a bit quieter (for a welcome change).
Wonder where all the idiots have been, and why can't they stay there?
Our Hooiserland weather for this day bring us cooler temps, partly to mostly sunny skies (that's a switch), breezy conditions continue but no gusty winds. Expect a high of around 50 degrees from the mid-30s this morning

*** Next up, how about some local STUPID, just so the rest of us can look SO damn much better?
NW area) in response to multiple gunshots. Police found no victim or shooter. People in the area said a person was taken in a vehicle to a hospital. This was also the person seen leaving the house on Huffman.
At 2000 hrs, officers were notified of a possible shooting victim getting into a car near Masterson and Barr Streets (SE area), approximately two miles from the Huffman Street address. The second victim was taken to a hospital by ambulance.
Both men were reported in critical condition.
*** Next, The city must be running out of places to develop up NORTH, so what's the plan?
Here's a story that might clue everyone in:
SOUTHWEST is the nest "target" for (over) development...and some residents there are BOTHERED by this (and they should be).
Development is good...TO...A...POINT.
But, when you try to cram "10 pounds of shit into a 5 pound bag"...things tend to get a bit messy. All the while, the southeast gets ignored...still...again...as always. All the potential...lost due to the crime (and those who cause it). hardly seems fair, but it's what people like us have to put the hell up with.
*** Next up, never fear, as plans and finances for more DOWNTOWN stuff goes on, like in this story:
How about that...swapping funds to pay for The Landing makeover.
|Big plans means big money here.|
Too many chiefs involved in all this wheeling, dealing and planning to make me feel comfortable.
And never enough braves to argue against such nonsense.
*** Next, we have lost a comedic LEGEND.
Don Rickles aka "Mr Warmth" (as Johnny Carson came to call him) has passed away at the age of 90. Here is his WIKI:
Now, if you think he was only known for his marvelous talent of sarcasm and insult...think again.
Watch Run Silent, Run Deep, and you'll see what I mean.
C.P.O. Sharkey as well.
|"Crapgame" in Kelly's Heroes|
I don't even want to think of how his entrance at the pearly gates would go...lol.
*** Next, time to shift gears and see what's going on at "Kitten Corner"...
|I'm too adorable to be "bad".|
|I'm too tired to be bad...at the moment.|
They both come running from wherever they had been to come get some.
|Got my eye on those cats there.|
Nothing wrong with a lifestyle such as that.
*** Last back to the overly damp flower pots...nice weather brings problems.
WILL be people.
As soon as the weather breaks, the morons come out like dormant bulbs blooming from the soil, and the usual results take place. We read about it all the time.
Crime never takes a holiday (a shame), so when it gets warmer, we have to be even more in guard.
I mean, we don't want to find people in our vehicles (like that woman in yesterday's post), do we?
We may not be texting while driving, but we can never be sure that others around us on the roads are not either.
We have to acknowledge that others will be doing the wrong thing, and take steps to protect ourselves, hopefully avoiding as much of THEIR stupidity as possible.
Not an easy task, but one which , if more people actively practiced, would avoid a world of problems.
Life is too short of full of too much splendor to have to worry about such things, but we've little choice in the matter, if we are to enjoy as much of life as we can. Our choices can't always be great ones, but if making a tough one leads to better things, then it has to be worth it. Therein lies the lesson for today.
Have yourselves a good weekend.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
