Dear Madame Zoltar
We've just had a blast of pleasant weather, but "they" say a temperature drop starts tonight. We should see more rain and even some snow in the next couple of weeks. "They" get paid, whether right or wrong. I wish I had a job like that, where you get paid even if you're batting below 500. Plus all the perquisites. However, it's wrong to envy. I started in childhood and never really stopped. I've prayed over this thousands of time. Still no results.
Here's the latest standings in the Irregular Football League:
How did I end up in 2nd to last place? What kind of witchery is this? I'll have a talk with my team and suggest that they try harder. If not, heads will roll, literally.
Hurray! The Green Bay Packers won one. They defeated he Philadelphia Eagles, but they're still 5-6. Beat the Houston Texans this Sunday, December 4, at noon, and their record will be tied. You can do it, guys! There's only five games left in the regular season. Head for victory. Blow by the Texans. Onward, forward, and mush! Show them the back of your hands and the heel of your boots. Give 'em hell!
The holiday season has already taxed me out. It wouldn't be bad if everyone believed in the Christmas Spirit. But most people are in a rush to do holiday shopping, decorating, cooking, etc. The only time I see the Christmas Spirit is when a family gathers for the holiday meal. Otherwise, most of us are far too busy to even think of the Christmas Spirit. We're a nation of liars, playing all that music and singing/talking about tradition and love when our only intention is to get through the mess as soon as possible. That's the difference between Christmas and Xmas. I hope you enjoy the season whatever your intentions are.
It appears that Mr. President-Elect Donald Trump has toned down his rhetoric and is acting much more responsibly than he did during the presidential campaign. I don't know if that was his plan all along: appeal to the baser instincts of the electorate to get elected, but then doing the job much more responsibly. I hope so. Our nation needs to heal. Otherwise, I fear for our future.
Locally, Mr. Mayor Lying John continues to waste precious tax dollars on pie-in-the-sky real estate schemes. He has lent out millions of our dollars to his cronies with nothing to show for it. Taxpayers are repeatedly raped in Racine. Until we stand up to the corruption in city government, it will just continue. So far, it appears that nothing will be done about it. Mr. Mayor Lying John will never be brought to justice. It's so depressing.
Don't let my bad mood infect you. Enjoy the holidays. Why? Because I love you. I love all of my readers and wish you the best for the holidays.

During the holiday rush, don't forget to take time out for you. Sit down with a cup of coffee and unwind. Remember, you're the only one of you, so handle with care. I love you all.
