Hello, my September brides and grooms! How are you?
Did you enjoy your Labor Day weekend?
The weather cooperated. “They”
are saying that we will hit the 90’s again this week. I suggest that we all stock up on as much
sunshine as possible before winter’s gloom.
Wouldn’t it be nice if we could bank sunny days? I wouldn’t mind a few days of winter weather
here and there if it meant we could trot out some sunny days in January and
February. Well, I wouldn’t even ask
Mother Nature. I think she’s gone completely
Boo-hoo. This is the month that
can run hot as a coal mine and then suddenly switch to autumn mode. If our weather pattern persists, we’re going
to be cold. The children have returned
to the schools, so please keep an eye out for them and the school buses. As the days grow shorter and the nights
lengthen, the kids will be harder to see.
I dislike the way the winter sun slides down in the southern sky. The glare can be deadly. Oh my, so much negativity. Let us give thanks for what we have.
Our enchanted and endearing Green Bay Packers ended their
preseason on a negative note. Actually,
3 negative notes to one positive. The
coaches don’t sound worried, though. May
they guide our stimulating Packers to victory in their season opener against
the San Francisco 49ers this
Sunday, September 8. The game starts at 3:25 p.m. in Candlestick
Park. Fox TV network will provide coverage. Hopefully, the Packers will provide a
win. Go Pack! Mutilate the 49ers! Destroy their women and children!
There was a little excitement in the Zoltar household yesterday.
We’re having electrical problems
and Señor Zanza insisted that he knew what he was doing when he started working
on the circuit breaker box.
I wanted to
hire a professional electrician, but Señor Zanza said no, he could do it.
That was about the last thing he said before
a large arc of electricity exploded from the box, sending Señor Zanza flying
across the room.
There also was a huge
bang and acrid-smelling smoke.
When we got Señor Zanza home from the
emergency room, he agreed to let a professional do it.
The soonest we could get one is
Right now, our house has power
only in the kitchen and one receptacle in the living room.
Thank goodness that the refrigerator is
We’ve run extension cords all
over the place to get power where we want it, but we have to be careful not to
overload the circuit.
It reminds me of
that Green Acres episode where Lisa was allowed to plug in only certain appliances
at one time.
Our bathroom has no power,
so I put a candle in there.
I hope the
boys can aim by candlelight.
boy, Señor Zanza, should be alright after a night’s rest.
Sometimes when you try to save a few dollars
by doing it yourself, you end up spending twice as much.
Finally, my dears, I have to put in my two cents worth on
the subject of Syria. I rarely talk about international
affairs. What I can say about the
current situation is that Syria
is a trap for the United States. I predict that if we get involved, we will
sorely regret it. Indeed, we have
regretted almost every military intervention that we have staged over the last
60 years. Stay away, Mr. President
Obama! Our sons and daughters should
never have to fight for any country except ours. Bring our troops home!
Thank you, lads and lassies, for reading my blog today. The more visitors, the better. I love company and I love the JT Irregulars.
Have a glorious week, my friends. There’s still fun to be had outdoors. Enjoy it while we can. To all of our children’s teachers: thank you. Mogigraphia!
