How DO we manage that in today's world, anyway?
Didn't get any rain yesterday, and by the looks of things, the weekend will be mostly dry as well (except for late Saturday).
Our Hoosierland weather for today brings us mostly sunny skies, with temps rising into the upper 60s. (I can work with that)
So, what say we start things off with a nice cup (or glass) of Friday Fortitude, as we take a look at what is going on elsewhere, hmm?
*** First off of the coffee table is our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:

ALL mothers out there...just the FEMALE ones, and they know who they are)
(( WHEW...!! ))
There we go then...got enough there to keep ANYONE (except the neighborhood kids) busy.
Remember to observe responsibly, and have a designated driver.
*** Next, another person SHOT in Fort Wayne (gee, I wonder where? Gotta be SE.).
Here's the story link:
Just another typical day in our fair city, right? Wait until summer gets here.
*** Next up, it looks like a new deadly drug has come to Indiana. Here's the lowdown:
"The Grey Death" (sounds like a Doctor Who episode title), and contains enough poison to kill a person outright.
(not that fewer drug addicts who prefer such crap is a BAD thing)
Weird thing about this...it looks like bits of CONCRETE, but packs a wallop that will send a user to the morgue straight away.
It contains not just heroin and fentanyl, but also CARFENTANYL, which can drop a damn elephant in it's tracks.
Mix these 3 together and you got a lethal combination...that some morons can't seem to avoid.
Also, the carfentanyl can be absorbed through the SKIN, so EMTs (and other first responders) have to be on guard, lest they get a "contact-high"...or worse.
Mexico to those living in Rio Linda, as Rush Limbaugh would say)
My thoughts on this...if people WANT to chase after this concoction and make the choice to place this poison in their bodies, so be it. Sure would get rid of a lot of our "surplus population" (as Charles Dickens would tell us).
You want to do this...then you pay the price. Just like anything else in life.
Sounds a bit on the callous side I know, but for those of us NOT into such folly, it does make sense.
*** Next, let's change things up, and stop on by "Kitten Corner"...
|"I see another cat out there."|
|"This is MY washer...mine."|
Sometimes, they nap together, and that is really cute to see.
*** Next up, time to turn the next page in our "Tales of Midnight"...
|"Time to get wet on the INSIDE".|
He can't wait to get the food I take to him. He always jumps up on the patio table, even if I;m not feeding him.
He is a fast learner, and knows the times he can expect the food.
|Good place to lounge the day away.|
*** Last back to the dining table...what happened to everyone being responsible for their OWN actions?
In fact, society falls over itself trying to make sure people cannot be held responsible for themselves or their actions.
That's why we have "government-sponsorship" for the poverty-stricken. Gimme a break.
Our nation has the RICHEST "poor people" on the whole planet, and yet, all the amenities we ensure these people get is never enough.
I feel that if people were (again) to be held to a higher level of accountability, then the responsibility factor would follow right along, as it's supposed to do.
In other words, stop claiming you're poor when you're raking in about $40K from the taxpayers, who are taking "care" of you and however many kids you want to birth...that's not fair to anyone.
Charity is here to help the truly needy, and should not have become the government behemoth we have allowed, just to make others more equal that others. That's not the way we should roll in THIS country.
But then again, I'm such a traditionalist...
Have yourselves a good weekend.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
