This weekend is the weekend before Independence Day. I expect the fireworks to start tonight and continue every night through like the 8th. Lucky for me I figured out the key to sleeping through fireworks - reminding myself that they are no worse than thunder and I sleep through thunder all the time. A plus this year - it's been super wet so no worries about some numbnuts starting the neighborhood on fire.
Speaking of wet, yesterday a storm stalled just north and a little west of here. I'm hearing it dumped like 6 inches of rain in a short period of time. This explains why my favorite animal shelter was showing pictures this morning of their flooded property. (The animals are all safe and fine.)
I got a little rant-tastic Tuesday evening (posted to OTB yesterday). It was actually quite cathartic. And I'm back to mellow me again.
Tonight is the big park meeting wherein the parks people will be looking for input on whether to keep the park open and continue to maintain it, or shut it down entirely and let it fall to ruin like a couple other parks in the area. We're still on the fence about whether to go. On the one hand, we'd like it maintained because people are pigs and without someone monitoring the park, people will trash it and it'll stay trashed. On the other hand, we're hermits and would rather not mingle with a few dozen of the locals - especially if nothing we say will make any difference. I'm just hoping that if they close it, they don't lock the gates. It's a great place to fish and it's the only one around here with a bathroom. If we go, I'll say something about it during Sunday's update post.
I didn't bother watching 'Dem Debate Day 1' last night. From what I'm seeing online, it was pretty much what I figured it was going to be - bashing Trump and competing to see who can offer the most free stuff to voters. I mean, that's pretty much their whole platform - 'Trump Bad. Get Free Stuff Here.' Personally, I can't afford these people giving any more free stuff away on my dime. And if you don't understand that the government has no money of its own, that all their 'free' money is money they took from you, then I can't help you.
Heh, mellow me.
The baby deers are so damn cute. (Yes, I said 'baby deers' because while fawns are cute, baby deers are cuter.)
Okay, I'm done here. What's the this n that for you today?
