Hello, my magnificent magnolias! How are you?
The splendiferous show of spring marches on. More and more trees are budding each
day. Daffodils and tulips are
everywhere. I like the colors of fall,
but not as much as I like the blooming of spring. So beautiful, so vibrant, so full of life.
The big news locally, of course, is the settlement of the
Mr. Mayor Dickert slander suit. The
trial was scheduled to start next week.
Instead, a confidential agreement has been reached. Madame Zoltar knows all and sees all, but I
also honor the law and will not reveal any details of the settlement. I am glad that the lawsuit has ended. It was tawdry to have our mayor’s soiled
linen aired in public like that. It
would be nice if for once in Racine
there wasn’t some political or business leader being sued or prosecuted or
investigated or arrested. We are far too
small a town to host such a large ensemble of major misfits. Oh my.
Down from one soapbox and onto another. Did you know about this? Every day kids come up with new ways to alter
their consciousness. It’s demon alcohol,
but in a new form:
I’ll never look at a bottle of hand sanitizer the same
again. I was at a store and a kid by the
shopping cart rack and sanitizer dispenser was staggering. What’s the matter with this younger
generation? Why can’t they do it the way
we did it? Get someone to buy/steal beer
for you and drink it. Puke. Repeat.
That’s normal. That’s what real
American kids do.
My, what a world we live in.
Danger all around us. Except
here. Here at the JT Irregulars, I feel
safe and loved. That comes from you, my
dear, dear readers. You provide the love
which propels me forward in this cruel world.
Thank you so much for that.
Thank you so much for reading my blog. Have a wondrous week, each and every one of
you. I love you all. Enjoy the weather and keep thinking, “No
frost. No frost. No frost.”
