And, it will only get warmer through the next several days, so keep the A/C turned on...you're going to need it.
We've got us a fair amount of stuff to take care of, so let's get right into it.
Our Hoosierland weather for today brings us sunny skies, temps climbing up to around 87 degrees, and no rain around to speak of.
*** First off of the nicely manicured back lawn is our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
JUNE 15 -
WTH you're up to)
*** Next up, and since we are indeed at week's end, let's see what we can observe over the following 48 hours.
JUNE 16 -
LOT of it, in fact)
JUNE 17 -
THIS I can take...several of)
HIRES man myself, but Stewarts works well, as does A&W)
SEVERAL months EARLY with this one)
And there we have it. Please remember to observe responsibly.
*** Next, Soarin' Hawks does the wilderness good once again. Here's the story:
((In February, Pam Whitacre was called to help the injured bird near Fox Island County Park off of Yohne Road. The bird had a broken humerus, a main bone in the wing.
Because the break was clean, the eagle was able to undergo a successful surgery to repair it.
After months of physical therapy, the nearly full grown bald eagle, was nursed back to health.))
Nice job, people. Well done
*** Next up, it's great to see our nation's AG step up and quote the law for a change.
Jeff Sessions was in town and spoke about our immigration policy and how we will enforce the laws, and how we don't need more laws. He even quoted the Bible. I can work with that.
It's NOT the fault of the kids, but YOU (illegals) brought them into all this, and now, there has to be a consequence for your actions. Sure, it's a damn shame about the kids, but we cannot sustain all those who just want to waltz across our borders with Lord knows what intent.
BTW, many illegals have already gotten more than our poor, who have lived here all thier lives...and at the expense of taxpayers, who are trying to address our OWN poverty issues.
*** Next, some good news about young people (for a change).
WTH??? What are they having for breakfast? Does Yoo-Hoo count? Starbucks still uses milk, right? Here's the lowdown:
I wonder if all those free breakfast and lunch programs figure into this, because they DO have milk on the menu. And what about VAPING? Any less of that? How about driving while DISTRACTED?
But, before you go celebrating in the damn streets... it's not ALL sunshine and lollipops, folks.
So, less drugs, less smoking, and so on, but...MORE suicides?
Maybe it's the alcohol they';re consuming? Or the music they listen to? Perhaps it's the social media marketing onslaught, or maybe video games?
Plenty of blame to go around, don'cha think?
Maybe if they just took a moment to sit back...and have a glass of milk now and then...
*** Next up, time for our final stop of the week at "Kitten Corner"...
Our kids were in full cuteness mode yesterday (which meant they again slept a good part of the day away...lol).
|I haz to guard my shopping bag.|
Considering we've had a bat, a bird, and a chipmunk in the house through the years (with our previous cats Rassie and Penny), I can't even imagine what a similar situation would be like with our current pair. The word "Catpocalypse" comes to mind...LOL.
|I iz dreaming of catchin' bugs|
*** Next, , it's also time to check back in with "Midnight and Company"...
Midnight just crapped out on the patio table (once the shade covered it), while Whiskers was content to play "hiding in the Nam grass" once again.
EARLY (before 0800 hrs, in fact), and I mowed the lawn around the same time, neither one got spooked by the sound of the truck OR the mower.
No one missed a meal and they were there until after it got dark.
*** Last back to the garage...Sunday is Father's Day
|Looks like an okay card to me.|
Those slighted said it portrayed a negative image. Really?
Well, if you (and your love interest, wife, girlfriend, whatever) have a BABY and you donated the sperm, then, by definition, you ARE the DADDY to that BABY...see how that works? Logic CAN be a real bitch.
Every father is indeed a "baby-daddy", but in recent years, the term has been co-opted to mean pretty much a deadbeat father, not in any marital relationship and just "spreading his seed" from woman to woman, with NO responsibility or personal accountability.
You see, being a REAL father infers that you are there for your child (or children), take the time to teach them the good points in life, and keep them from doing the bad things. It means being watchful of your son or daughter, and being protective of them as they mature.
Being a father is being a child's first "hero", and a mentor, and someone who that child can look up to (and not be vacant from their lives).
Being a father is being a helpmate to "mom", and a teacher to the kids. It's working in tandem with mom to ensure a child is trained up in the way they SHOULD Be...not as the world wants them to be, and that means having them learn about a higher authority.
If, when they grow up, they choose another path, that's on them.
But, as a father, you are the one who is responsible in helping to mold that child to be a good, decent, productive individual.
My father was like that, and even though he's been gone over 40 years no, I still miss being able to sit down and ask him some questions, or just chat a while about things.
Sure, maybe being a father seems old-fashioned in today's world, but then again, I think the world (and our country) could use a good healthy dose of "old-fashioned" to bring us back to a better sense of morality and reason.
It's just a (old-fashioned) thought.
Do have yourselves a good weekend.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
