Dear Madame Zoltar

Hello, my darling dudes and dudettes!  How are you?  We had to turn on the furnace to take the chill out of the air the past few nights.  Oh dear.  The slide towards winter continues.  There are many beautiful color variations amongst our trees and shrubs.  I have Junior out there raking up the leaves once a week.  He hates it.  Too bad.  Chores around the home build character. 

Our deliriously devastating Green Bay Packers clipped the wings of last week’s opponent, the Baltimore Ravens.  Raise a cheer!  Huzzah, huzzah!  This coming Sunday’s victims are the Cleveland Browns.  (What kind of team name is that?  “Browns?”  How about the Black and Blues?)  May our awesome and elegant Packers beat the snot out of them. 

As for the Irregular Football League, Mr. OrbsCorbs’ Orbliterators remain in first place, but he took some licks this past week.  Look at the graphic to the right.  Oh my.  No more Mr. Undefeated.  No more cock of the walk.  No more telephone calls yelling “Booyah!” at me.

Mound madness continues in Racine, with Mr. Mayor Dickert garnering more and more publicity for his plan to sell a possible Native American burial mound to a local family.  As this ruckus unfolds, national newspapers and television networks have become interested.  Mr. Mayor, who prides himself on himself, usually craves the spotlight, but I don’t think he likes the tone of the attention that he’s currently receiving.  Ho-hum, another black eye for Racine.  So it goes.

The Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department and the Downtown Racine Corporation will present Monument Mash from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 19, at Monument Square, Main and Sixth streets.”  Read more: I haven’t asked Señor Zanza if he wants to attend, but we may stop by.  Junior would love it.

Finally, here’s a heartwarming video for those who believe in paying it forward:

How nice, but I think that 5 twenty dollar bills would be better than one hundred dollar bill for these people.  Where can a street person cash a hundred?  A liquor store is the first thing that came to my mind.

Thank you, my sweets, for stopping by to read my blog.  I adore visitors and I welcome you all.  I hope you find something of value here.

The old government is shut down.  Let’s start a new one:

Enjoy our autumn weather, my dears.  Put on a jacket or sweater and get out to see the colors.  I wonder what Petrifying Springs Park is like?  At its peak, the scenery there is awe-inspiring.  Watch out for school buses and children.  I love you all.     Gaberlunzie!

Madame, we too had to turn the furnace on last night. But we had the windows open to get rid of the first furnace run "smell". I guess I have to admit it is fall.

Thank you for your lovely column, Madame. It brings joy to me with every week.

Can we put a "be human" charm on the youth of this city, or must I partake in a "be unaware" potion to calm my nerves? It is really getting rough out there!

KK, pack a sidearm.

Madame- I see how Daddy Orbs is getting cocky about fantasy football. He needs to just remember we are only halfway through it right now.

Sorry I haven't made it out to Petrifying Springs yet to get any fall pictures. I will try to get there next week and hopefully I will not be to late.
