Hello, my cool cucumbers!
How are you? We’re finally
getting April weather in June. I guess I
should be glad that I don’t have to run the air conditioner very often, but I
wonder if those “savings” don’t get spent on higher heating costs in colder winters. If it stays this cool through fall, I’d say
we’re in for another nasty, life-threatening winter. It gets harder every year to put up with
winter. I love Christmas, but you can
have the rest of it. I’d love to
hibernate for three months every year. That
would be a good excuse for putting on body fat, too.
I’m so glad that the police arrested those two alleged bank
robbers. It’s been quiet lately. I find it hard to believe, but maybe those
two guys alone robbed the bars and the banks.
I hope that’s true. People would
feel a little more secure in their homes and businesses. I’m still locking my car and setting the
alarm, I still lock my doors and windows at home. I’ve always done that.
I do hope that Mr. Mayor Dickert will take some time to pat
himself on the back for capturing these criminals.
And what about “Machinery Row,” the latest scam meant to
attract Chicago millionaires who
are idiots? I think they said this project
is going to cost $65 million. Don’t
worry, however, because the state is going to pay for most of it. I’m so glad that the state has so much “free”
money earned by the sweat of our brows.
It’s only tax money; it’s not like it’s real.
Junior is already getting antsy because the 4th
of July is next week. I reminded him of
the power of firecrackers and the permanent damage that they can do. I told him that if he blows off a finger this
time, I’m not going to reattach it. So
far, so good. But the firecracker tents
will soon sprout up in empty parking lots.
It’s hard for a boy to ignore such a plethora of temptations. I’ll tell you that if a straw buyer provides
him with firecrackers, he/she will face the Wrath of Zoltar®! They’re already too many things that “go
bang” in our lives. I must add that I’ve
heard a reduction in the amount of illegal firecrackers exploding each
year. Thank you, Racine Police
I don’t know about going to the parade and fireworks this
year. I’ll have to wear winter clothing. I think I’ll stay home with the Señor. Steaks on the grill for any Irregulars who
stop by. We’ll have a few beers and soda
on ice, too, just in case.
That’s it for this week, my dears. I appreciate your presence and
responses. I love the JTI.
It’s supposed to be cool for the next few days. Wear a light jacket or tie a sweater around
your neck. Enjoy the summer, dears, no
matter how you do it. Lacustrine!
