NOT looking at some atrocious conditions outside THIS morning.
The city actually cancelled leaf pickup yesterday (we already had ours picked up LAST week).
Personally, I would have cancelled HALF the day (until all that crap ice went away).
I had to toss some rock salt on the pavement between the back steps and garage so Wifey wouldn't slip (I've walked in and on worse...or should I say SLID along...lol).
Our Hoosierland weather for today brings us cloudy skies, temps rising to about 35 degrees, and a light breeze, just to make you feel colder.
*** First off of the stove is our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
NOVEMBER 16 -
---It's National Button Day
---It's National Fast Food Day
---It's National Indiana Day
FINALLY...so what's the deal anyway?
*** Next, and since the end of the week has arrived, let us take a look at what we can observe over the following 48 hours...
NOVEMBER 17 -
---Saturday is National Adoption Day
---It's National Baklava Day
---It's National Homemade Bread Day
---It's National Take a Hike Day
OUR area, and in the voice of Beetlejuice)
NOVEMBER 18 -
---Sunday is the Mickey Mouse Birthday
---It's National Princess Day
---It's National Vichyssoise Day
COLD soup, but a tasty one)
And there we have it...lots of things to take note of.
Just remember to ALWAYS observe responsibly.
*** Next up, from our Special Kind of Stupid Department we have this:
|I'm not smiling one damn bit.|
Thankfully, the woman in the car as not killed.
|You tell 'em, pup.|
Nothing funny about this AT ALL.
*** Next, I guess there still is a 1st time for everything:
OFF WITH PAY.
I will say that for once, FWCS took the side of caution, rather than stay open and place kids at risk (as they tend to do).
*** Next up, another "OOPS" moment from the utility company. Here;'s the story:
This is becoming all too common with these crews.
*** Next, country music legend, Roy Clark has passed away at the age of 85.
And here is his WIKI:
(Here he is with the late Jimmy Dean)
Not gonna be the same without hearing him any longer.
TV shows on obscure cable channels)
*** Next up, time to swing on by our "Kitten Corner"...
|Just keeping your seat warm, daddy.|
They were both pretty good yesterday, and with little running about.
Violet and Gallifrey tried to watch some birds,. but even they didn't come out in the bad weather.
(plus, the feeder was empty - note to self there)
|And I'm just being cute (as usual).|
Okay, that's FOUR words.
They do look forward to the routine.
*** Next, let's do our daily check-in with "Midnight and Whiskers"...
|Well, someone used the shelter.|
VERY well received.
As a result, they were here for all three meals (and hand held treats).
Nothing wrong with such familiarity, is there?
*** Last back to the oven...well, Red River has overcome (this week anyway) their "aversion": to picking up our trash on the appointed day of the week.
Let's hope they can MAINTAIN this...one day does not a changed mind make.
Thanksgiving, and as a preface to that, let me say that we (as in ALL of us) should take time daily to realize just HOW thankful we truly are.
Aside from the hectic and stupid that's running rampant in our world today, it only take a minute to pause and reflect on what we have to be thankful for.
So, let's just not limit such things to a particular day.
Rather let's all make it a daily occurrence. We'll be better off in the long run , trust me.
Do have yourselves a good weekend.
