We've been fortunate that we had few days of real heat. Not enough rain, but that's true of almost every growing season now. Climate change can be felt everywhere, but there's not a lot we can do about it. It's the huge industrial producers, especially overseas, that poison our air and water. We better start taking care of this planet or the UFOs will,
As Ms. Tender Heart Bear proclaimed in another thread, she is in second place in this week's standings in the Irregular Footbal League.
I'm in fifth place and Mr. OrbsCorbs is in sixth. Mr. hale-boppremains the man to beat. Go get him, Ms. Tender Heart Bear.
In professional football, our Green Bat Packers had to settle for a tie with the Minnesota Vikings. Pretty soon Aaron Rodgers will have a brace attached to every joint on his body. The $19.8 million dollar man. I want so badly to believe, but I know that Mr. Rodgers will be further injured. It's his karma, or kismet. All those millions have purchased us a porcelain doll. Watch how easily he breaks.
I remember the old days of Bart Starr and shrugging off an injury. No prima donnas then. Those days are long past. Back then, they played football. Today, they perform.
My condolences to the family of the Mount Pleasant public works employee who was killed by a car.
And my condolences to the family of Alderman Ray DeHahn. Not too many are willing to serve like he did.
Indeed, most people don't give a damn about local politics, just so long as their money keeps coming in. At times I feel that we're a city of idiots ruled over by even bigger idiots. What does it matter? Who cares? Just a few. Most people are too busy with their own lives to get involved in politics. The politicians count on that. Thus they rule the roost.
Junior is back driving again. I haven't asked Señor Zanza about the details, and I don't intend to. I assume that what they're doing is legal. If it's not, they'll get busted. Junior is cursed with the Zoltar curse: an inability to commit crime. He's gotten around it in the past, but now he seems more mellow and trusting. He's getting older.
Mr. Trump has been extraordinarily quiet this past week. Now that most of his key staff members are under investigation, he has quieted down. Perhaps he knows what's next, what will be revealed. He might get impeached yet.
That's it. I love you all and wish for nothing but the best for you. I love readers of my blog. We are family.
Enjoy what's left of summer. We'll still get some warm days even though the nights are cool. Great sleeping weather. Great weather for a hike or a bicycle ride. Get out and do something.
