"What If the Presidential Election is a Tie?"

That's simple enough.

By the way, I'm receiving three or four robocalls every day. I assume they're robocalls. I never answer them. A "Michigan Call" sometimes calls twice a day. Damn the politicians for excluding themselves from Do Not Call registries.

Four for Fridays

Hello everybody! Welcome back to Four for Fridays! It's been a long ans crazy week filled with overtime. To end it all, we're heading Up North to witness the birth of Tender Heart's second grandchild. Here are some questions for you....

1) On average, how many hours do you sleep in a night?

2)  Where is your favorite place to see Autumn colors?

3)  Who is your favorite Sesame Street character?

4) If you could change one thing about the world today what would it be?

Enjoy your weekend!

"Complete And Utter Failure At News Station"

She's having a bad day at work.

"Man accused of stealing, chased down and hit by a car"

I occasionally go to that store.  I know the guy who drove the Jeep that chased down the guy on the bike.  He doesn't like thieves, but I've never known him to do something like this.  He must have been having a bad day.  Something about this story doesn't add up, but I'm not sure if it's the incident or the story that is messed up.  The story says the guy on the bike left all of the items in the store and took off.  Why was he then charged with theft?  Maybe we'll find out more in later stories. 

That Time of the Year with Fall Colors Pt3!

The pictures I am going to show you I had taken last week. I am really sorry it has taken me so long to get them posted on here. I have been really busy with so many things happening. I took the pictures at Pritchard Park, Shoop Park and the at Lighthouse.

I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I have been enjoying taking the pictures. I just love going out and looking at all the colors.

I couldn't believe it when I went past Pritchard Park yesterday all the trees you seen in my pictures the leaves are coming down already. Half of the trees there at bare. I really blew me away when I seen that yesterday.

I am going to try to get some pictures of the trees with some of the leaves on them still. We are going up north this weekend so I am going to try to get some pictures up there. So next week will be my last Fall Colors Post.

Do angels like autumn?

Bollywood, Tractors, and Jingle Bells, Oh My!

I don't know if this or kung fu movies are better.

Dear Madame Zoltar

Hello, my autumn chestnuts!  How are you?  The days grow colder and shorter.  The wind is brisk.  Everywhere you go are signs of the season: Halloween items in every store.  Halloween is very big business these days.  With the commercial push for the “holiday season,” I expect we’ll soon be celebrating HallowThanksChristmasNewYear.  We’ll just buy, buy, and buy from September through December.  It’s good for the economy, even if it bankrupts us.

Our august and illustrious Green Bay Packers fell to the Indianapolis Colts last Sunday.  Oh woe is us. Gloom, despair, and agony overwhelm us.  That is, until this Sunday, October 14, when the Pack meets the Houston Texans at 7:20 p.m., in Houston.  Then, may the Packers’ fury destroy the Texans. Annihilate, debilitate, and obliterate the Texans, please, Packers.  Cut them off at the knees and stomp them beneath your cleats, then chew them up for dog food.  Oh dear, I do get worked up about our Packers. 

I’ve also been worked up about a neighbor problem.  Often, those are the worst kind.  One of my neighbors has put up a light to illuminate his garage and driveway and side door at night.  It’s one of those intense, orangey-colored lights that buzz.  The problem is that his light also illuminates the side of my house where the bedrooms are.  If I didn’t mind peeping toms, I could keep the blinds up and let his light illuminate my bedroom at night.  I’ve asked him to try to point the light a little more away from my house, or use a lower wattage light, but to no avail.  I even went out there at night wearing a swimsuit and sunglasses, with tanning lotion in my hand.  I laid on the picnic table for awhile, but, again, he didn’t respond. Señor Zanza is exasperated.  Junior thinks it’s “cool.”  I am having trouble sleeping in the light that seeps in around my blinds and curtains.  I think I’ll give the “gentleman” one more chance.  If he doesn’t respond then, I’ll be forced to place the Curse of Zoltar™ upon him.  Boo! Ha-ha!

I was going to proceed here with some civic-minded musings about the City of Racine’s government, but then I thought, “Ugh! I don’t want to step into that pile of poop again.”  Instead, below is a video entitled “Vivaldi, Autumn:”

That is simply beautiful. 

All of my readers are beautiful.  I love your visits to my blog and I love you.  Thank you for stopping by today.  Thank you for your comments. 

Have you heard?  Project Zoltar has started:

Be good my boys and girls and everything in-between.  Remember, Santa Claus is watching you, so don’t mess up, or you’ll have a lousy Christmas. Maybe even Thanksgiving and Halloween, too.  Happy, happy, merry, happy HallowThanksChristmasNewYear. Kreatophagia!

Useless Information

Did you know:
