And, it will be a tad cooler today, so if there's anything that needs getting done, best to get out there early while the air is crisp and clean.
Our Hoosierland weather for today brings us mostly sunny skies, a high of around 73 degrees, and some breezy conditions.
So, what say we get that morning drink and wet our whistles as we see what's been going on here and there, hmm?
*** First out of the refrigerator is our WHO SAID THAT? quote for the week:
"Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have - life itself."
I believe that this is one of those quotes that universally speaks to us all, because life is that one constant to which we are all bound...much like the time we are allotted. All we need do is listen when life speaks.
So, who said that? The answer at the top of tomorrow's post.
Meanwhile, back at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts...
*** Next up, it's time for our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
JUNE 7 -
---It's National Boone Day
---It's National Chocolate Ice Cream Day
---It's National Running Day
---It's National VCR Day
*** Next up, something tells me we had some local stupid going on.
---The shooter at the Beauty Academy had been rejected. Here's the story"
Oh, boo-frigging-hoo. His advances were turned down by a woman...same thing has happened to damn near every other red-blooded male at some point in his life. That's the way the cookie crumbles, snowflake.
Thing is, the rest of us guys stop wasting time and move the hell ON.
Besides, by the looks of him, can you BLAME the woman?
I mean, he doesn't exactly EXUDE integrity and decency, does he? He has a history with law-enforcement, too (as could be expected).
Doesn't look like a man who would do anything but "use" a woman or otherwise mistreat her.
---Now, some people never quite learn any lessons while in jail. Here's the proof:
THE DAY BEFORE after a ten-year stint for (take a wild guess) BANK ROBBERY (and the SAME branch to boot).
ANY dumber? You'd be hard-pressed to find anyone THIS moronic.
---If you track down and arrest someone, you'd BETTER have a reason. Here's the story:
NO charges have been filed against this turdbucket in the death of coach Terrance Miles, and yet they are still holding this guy?
Got news for you...there IS a limitation on HOW LONG you can detain someone without charging them.
(and it's not that long, trust me)
Then, you gotta cut them loose.
That's the law.
You want that to happen? Then charge the man with something, otherwise, he's gonna be in the wind, and the coach's family will never get any closure. Simple as that.
---Sorry, no (urban) chickens roosting in Fort Wayne (for the time being). Here's that story:
Personally, I think the less "chicken-shit" the better, specially from downtown...lol.
*** Next, there was a very good Letter to the Editor in today's paper.
Curtis Hill). Here's the link:
Kudos to him and for reason winning out here.
Sure, the lure of all that "revenue" coming into a state LOOKS good on the outside, but there ARE consequences and results from following the path that other states have done, and that money that's supposed to help the states winds up being wasted in dealing with the fallout from legalized pot (and don't fool yourselves., there is plenty of fallout to go around).
Nice to see someone in the statehouse with a finger on the pulse of reality (for a change).
*** Next up, we got some nice things going on in and around the garden.
REALLY small rose "bush". It's about 2 inches tall (no kidding), but it blooms every year. Why it refuses to grow, I have no idea. Must be the "local" music, I hear plants HATE (c)rap music. That would explain things.
There are also the pepper plants with flowers on them. Just waiting for the tomato plants to catch up.
|The peonies are all gone already.|
*** Next, time to stop by our "Kitten Corner"...
They KNOW that...!
*** Next up, let's see what's going on in our "Tales of Midnight"...
He doesn't follow me around. He prefers to stay within the gates and just keep tabs on what I'm doing.
(and he's not dragging phone charging cords all over).
*** Last back to the stove-top...there are some people who consider life without value.
And, many of them are getting good at their game, because the rest of us have to amend our lifestyle so as not to encounter or run afoul if such cretins. Not as easy a task as it was in decades past (when we had a lot fewer idiots running around).
These days, it's all you can do to grab a slice of solace within your four walls, and enjoy life in general.
OF life are missing out on so much.
And yet, such people have the same opportunity we have when it comes to living.
Their lack of vision defines who they are just as much as how our appreciation of life defines who WE are.
Those who value life as cheap can't see the bigger picture. They can't function in a civil society. They cannot acknowledge a higher authority that makes life possible.
Life and the time we have within it are the most precious gifts that God could bestow upon mankind.
How we USE both of them is left up to each of us. We are permitted free will.
Let's make each day one that we celebrate, cherish, and keep close to our hearts.
For (good, bad, or indifferent) we will never have another today like the one we have right now.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
