THIS isn't nice...we have SNOW out there (which won't last long).
Nothing like rain and snow to mess with leaf pickup...(and trash collecting...more on that below).
Guess we have that global warming to thank for this...or do we?
Our Hoosierland weather for today brings us snow showers through mid morning, which means cloudy skies (no sunrise, kids).
Temps will top out only near the 40 degree range and yes, you might want to amend your driving habits accordingly, especially when it comes to overpasses, as they will get slick first. Also, with the leaves that have fallen, that could also prove to be problematic.
Friday Fortitude (or maybe something a little "stronger"), as we see what else has been (and will be) going on elsewhere...
*** First out of the toaster is our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
NOVEMBER 9 -
---It's National Louisiana Day
---It's National Scrapple Day
ONE DAMN PIECE OF SCRAPPLE TO BE FOUND...ARRGGH!!!)
---It's Microtia Awareness Day
*** Next, and since week's end has indeed arrived, let's see what we can observe over the following 48 hours...
NOVEMBER 10 -
---Saturday is National Forget Me Not Day
---It's National Vanilla Cupcake Day
---It's the Marine Corps Birthday
STILL kicking ass...Semper Fi!)
NOVEMBER 11 -
---Sunday is National Sundae Day
RIGHT day for this one)
---It's Veteran's Day
And there we go then...plenty of things to take note of.
Just remember to always observe responsibly.
*** Next up, we start the weekend in Fort Wayne in typical style...WITH A BANG (or two).
A man is in critical condition after being shot early this morning. It took place just before 0400 hrs behind a tailor shop near E. State Blvd and California Av.
We can still make 40 homicides by year's end if this keeps up.
*** Next, it seems our "king" (read mayor) is pleased. Here's this story:
|No sire, SHOW me the money!|
|Same day - same no show.|
I had a feeling this problem would not go away even with the route changes.
*** Next up,...get ready, because we have another "master plan" in the works. Here's that story:
Does Franke Park REALLY need such "upgrades"?
|Where's the master plan for the SE???|
Guess that's gonna be dumped on the NEXT mayor?
*** Next, time for the latest inductees into the TOY Hall of Fame...the envelope, please:
*** Next up, this just can't be good..unless we WANT a nation of potheads.
|This strain of MJ is called PANDORA'S BOX!|
I liken this to prying open (another) Pandora's Box...and haven't we done this ENOUGH times with such sundry things in recent history?
|Shut that damn lids, sweetheart.|
*** Next, time to stop by out "Kitten Corner"...
|She's just so photogenic.|
And yes, Violet likes to sleep with me. Gallifrey likes to sleep alone (usually in my chair), but will wander by to get a head rub.
|And he's so cute (when he's napping).|
*** Next up, let's do our last check in for the week with "Midnight and Whiskers"...
Midnight took off before the back step treats, so Whiskers got a bit more.
They both have their own spots in leaves I placed alongside the house...like a "nest" of sorts.
You hear that, Midnight...go in and use one of them. Whiskers can't sleep in both at the same time.
*** Last back to the cereal bowl...you know the more this city does to make certain parts look better, the more we get ignored down on the SE side.
NEED it to become this?
Well, those in power at the time MUST have seen the makings of a decline...but did nothing. They just allowed it to occur, all the while turning their attention to OTHER parts of the city.
|And this is all WE get in he SE.|
|Obviously, NO success with that yet.|
Property values on the SE side have tanked, houses condemned, and unsafe streets abound - we used to see people walking after dark...hardly any these days, and they're probably not walking as much as they are "skulking" about.
|It certainty IS.|
It will only get worse, too, so the city will try to expand further from the problem.
|Still waiting to see some of THIS.|
And HOPE will continue to play a large part in all of that...rest assured.
Do have a good weekend.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
