ONE way to get to the weekend...in a rowboat...LOL.
Have to admit that we had some serious rain later on yesterday.
Did not expect that much.. That was a gully-washer down here.
We even have hail for a brief time, and some REALLY gusty winds.
Hopefully, none of THAT stuff today.
Our Hoosierland weather will bring us mostly cloudy skies, temps reaching only to around 68 degrees (far cry from yesterday's high in the lower 90s), and a much calmer day, wind-wise. Still might get us some shower activity with maybe a thunderstorm tossed.
I do believe that is a lot more tolerable for all concerned.
I think we should all grab a deep cup or tall glass of Friday Fortitude to kick-start ourselves, as we take a look at what else has been going on...
*** First off of the rain-washed streets is our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
MAY 19 -
---It's National Bike to Work Day
---It's National Defense Transportation Day

ANY day can be a pizza-related day to me)
*** Next, and since the end of the week has arrived, let's see what we can observe over the following 48 hours...
MAY 20 -
---Saturday is Armed Forces Day

NJ a very long time ago)

MAY 21 -
---Sunday is National American Red Cross Founders Day
---It's National Memo Day
---It's National Strawberries and Cream Day
---It's National Take Your Parents to the Playground

*** Next up, seems we're starting the weekend off with a "bang". Here's the story:
eleven ( since 25 April)...or number ten, depending on who you listen to. We shall see.
((UPDATE 1500 hrs - right again (number eleven). Here's the latest:
Not too hard to figure out things in this city.))
*** Next, I thought that the "fate" of the 122nd ANG unit had been determined a few years back, and that F-16s would return again until the F-35 came along in the near future.
((Members of Congress have been floating the idea of another round of Base Realignment and Closure, or BRAC. Rep. Adam Smith, D-Wash., introduced legislation in January that would establish an independent commission in 2019 to review and recommend possible consolidations, realignments and closures of military installations.
Should the legislation become law, the Defense Department would implement those recommendations unless Congress disapproved.
In a March interview with The Journal Gazette, Banks said about prospects for BRAC, “I don't view that as a serious conversation in this Congress at this point.” The last round of BRAC was in 2005.))
|Don't tread on THEM.|
I thought they LOVED wasting...I mean SPENDING our money?
*** Next, and speaking of obstructionism, we have this story:
ACLU, in league with Planned Parenthood is filing a lawsuit against a new abortion law? Talk about one of the biggest double standards the leftards have at their disposal.
NO problem with the whole murder of MILLIONS of unborn, and on the other hand, these same people can't bring themselves to assign the DEATH penalty to those convicted of MURDER (like Charlie Manson).
This is beyond stupid, but then again, the leftists EXCEL at that, don't they?
*** Next up, let's vacate the asylum of asininity and instead drop by "Kitten Corner"...
And yes, none of the weather bothered their appetites at all...like you thought it would?
*** Next, time to see what's shaking with our "Tales of Midnight"...
|"Ever wear a damp fur coat? Not fun."|
|"I know that lady is coming soon."|
*** Last back to the rain barrel collection...there is nothing wrong with spreading some charity where it's needed.
I was always taught to help others when possible, and yes, a lot of that had to do with religion.
I have no issue with that and make no apologies for it.
The seeds one plants with giving to those less fortunate do bear fruit in time.
As is often the case, we may not be aware of the results of any charitable actions we demonstrate, and that's fine, too.
Rewards are for those turning in fugitives...and for the next life.
We just do what we do, and we should expect no less of ourselves.
Nothing wrong with setting standards for yourself, as long as they are based in honesty, and truth, and biblical principles. And never make them unattainable.
Also, there is aabsolutely no shame of falling short of the goal, as long as you try.
Everything you do in life for the right reason, will be appreciated, and returned to you in kind.
Therein lies the lesson for today.
Do have yourselves a good weekend.
Stay SAFE out there,America.
