Hello, my autumnal weather friends! How are you?
Yes, the temperature continues its slide downward, but so slowly at
times as to be imperceptible. I love
temperatures in the 70’s during the day, and 50’s for sleeping at night. I think we’ve had a near perfect summer. We just got the rain we could’ve used a
little earlier, but I know that farmers are happy. Autumn, already. As Charlie Brown would say, “Good grief!”
As predicted here, our stoic and marvelous Green Bay Packers
slipped by the Seattle Seahawks this past Sunday. Next will be the Kansas City Chiefs (how
un-PC) on Monday, September 28, at home at 7:20
PM. Once again, my
prediction is that the Packers will make mincemeat of their opponents. Once again, the Green and Gold will be
This Saturday, September 26, is “Party on the Pavement” in
downtown Racine: http://www.racinedowntown.com/downtown-racine-events/party-on-the-pavement/
. I haven’t gone to the “party” much since the beginning, when the Downtown
Racine Corporation wouldn’t begrudge me a booth.
But I always mention and promote the
And, of course, Junior and Señor
Zanza always attend.
Plenty of girls and
plenty of beer – they’re in heaven.
The next day, Sunday the 27th, is when the real
party starts for the JTIs. Hint, hint,
wink, wink. Try not to destroy any toilet fixtures, Mr. OrbsCorbs.
Well, our governor Walker dropped out of the presidential
race. Too bad. I was hoping that he’d be so busy campaigning
that he wouldn’t have time to damage Wisconsin
any more. I think those big words and
hard questions of the debates made him look foolish, so he returned to the land
where he is “king,” even though he’s an idiot. (Political remarks made here are mine and mine
alone.) If only everyone in the U.S.
could experience the Walker
experience, then we might have a revolution.
The Pope is here! No,
not right next to me, but in Washington, D.C. I think he’s going on a U.S.
tour. Just like the Rolling Stones. He should use Robert Tilton for his opening
act. In all seriousness, he seems to be
the most accessible Pope since anyone can remember. He is devoid of pretense and truly loves the
poor. He’s like a Super Mother Teresa. I hope he lives a long and productive life as
the Pope. Welcome to the USA,
Finally, I want to make a comment on driverless cars, which
are predicted to be on our roads within 10 years. Google says 5 years for their car. Here’s my comment: ARE YOU F*CKING NUTS? The last thing I want next to me on the
highway is a machine totally dependent upon computers and cutting edge
technology. What happens when the blue screen
of death appears on the car’s console?
Does it explode? Who’s to blame
if there’s a pileup of driverless cars?
If you flip off a driverless car, does it get road rage? I think driving is dangerous enough as it is,
and the more we depend upon technology, the less self-reliant we become.
Thank you for reading my blog today. I’d like to smooch each and every one of my
readers. I smooched my monitor. You smooch yours and it’s like we’re trading
kisses. (Please, don’t smooch the
monitor if you have any communicable diseases.)
Enjoy the weather while we have it. I haven’t seen any tree color changes yet,
but they’re sure to come. Remember, wet
leaves can be slipperier than ice. Watch
out for kids around school buses, and everywhere else. Let fall begin!
