Seems we're having more of a "rainy season" this year, and that's rather odd.
Perhaps the Earth DID shift on it's axis, and no one's saying anything to avert a worldwide panic.(we may never find out)
Our Hoosierland weather for today brings us mostly sunny skies to begin with, temps rising back into the upper 70s and yes, clouds will roll in by this afternoon with the possibility of some rain following along.
Any plans for this evening should include taking that umbrella...just in case.
*** First out of the coffee pot is our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
MAY 24 -
National Road Trip Day
National Cooler Day
(yeah, I wish it WAS...cooler that is)
Aviation Maintenance Technician Day
(I'm an only child, but I still have "brothers" out there)
National Scavenger Hunt Day
National Escargot Day
(it's a frigging slug with a house on it's back)
National Wyoming Day
(here's to Momma Fargo's home-state)
National Don’t Fry Day
JUST once, and in Florida)
*** Next, and since week's end has arrived, let's see what we can observe over the following 48 hours...
MAY 25 -
National Missing Children’s Day
National Tap Dance Day
National Brown-Bag It Day
National Wine Day
MAY 26 -
National Blueberry Cheesecake Day
ANY form of cheesecake is welcome)
National Paper Airplane Day
There we are then...plenty of stuff to keep you otherwise occupied and out of the local jails. Always remember to observe responsibly.
*** Next up...it's our Friday with O'Reilly column:
That's idiocy, especially in our morally-deficient world, increasingly devoid of Biblical standards (on which our nation WAS founded).
*** Next...Tony Bennett may have left his heart in San Francisco, and these days, it's not difficult to see why he might want it back...
|Get the poop maps out, it's downtown Frisco.|
How much things have changed just from the days of Bullitt and Dirty Harry.
|Feeling lucky, Pelosi?|
This is a very revealing story...and a cautionary tale of how NOT to move a city forward. Fort Wayne, take note.
*** Next up, time to stop by our "Kitten Corner"...
|He likes to nod out on the perch in the window.|
Can't blame 'em. It was a day to do a lot less than usual.
|Dining room chairs work well for her.|
They took to their own spots to catch up on some sleep.
*** Next, let's do our final check in this week with "Midnight and Whiskers"...
|"Half a day without rain is better than none."|
Midnight got a bit soaked early on, but dried out by the afternoon.
Whiskers didn't have such a fate, as she got smart and was in a shelter.
|"I know, but I HATE being wet."|
Yes, they are very spoiled, but I can blame that on these two being such GOOD teachers (for me)...lol.
*** Last back to the homestead...okay, it's Memorial Day weekend, and you know what that means...
"The Greatest Spectacle in Motor Racing"...the Indy 500.
Well, except for the "500", I'm taking a pass on all the other "activities".
I let all the "locals" take care of charring meat and being loud while doing it (as they always are).
Naturally, we're also starting "fireworks season"...something that needs to be regulated more than it is. Scares the pets and our furry duo.
Now, if I'm sounding a bit on the curmudgeonly side, that's too bad, because that's how I feel.
JUST having fun, which anyone can do so many other weekends of the year (weather permitting).
It's about placing American flags on military graves...not as much fun as a cookout, but a helluva lot more meaningful, and we all should know why that is.
It's about a day of remembrance - those who gave all so that we could be free.
It's a day of reverence...a day to be thankful...a day to acknowledge those who have fallen in the service of our nation, as well as those who serve to preserve this country.
It's so much more than what is portrayed, and we should take time to think on that. It might do us all better .
Do have yourselves a good weekend.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
See 'ya next week.
