Out of the Blue

Okay, it's July 23rd… 19 days after the fourth of July can we stop with the fireworks already? I don't know how much more I can take of watching Hudson the wonder dog tremble in terror from the explosions.

We haven't even had ours yet. Rain delay until September. This is speaking of an official fireworks show, of course, and not the jackholes firing them off in the neighborhood.

The guy interviewed in the article said his expandable baton was sufficient for self defense. That and I imagine the most "spelunking" one can do is traverse some of the somewhat high-angled inclines used to channel the water in a desired direction (if the drainage sewers located near where I grew up are any indication).

Nuts. And I was so hoping everyone would take me literally on my use of "spelunking" in that sentence.

"Oh it can core a apple."

Of course it can core a apple!

Man, thought I was the only person under 65 to reference that episode.

It's just the giant roaches, delinquents, and smell of rotting homeless keep us uninterested in spelunking them.

Well, that's one nice thing about living in the dry-as-a-bone west - everyone's so afraid of starting an inferno with an errant firecracker, that no one's really been doing it. Least not in my neighborhood, and we've always had problems with the firework addicts before. Plus, the drought-fueled brushfires provide more exciting entertainment anyway.

And about those Vegas drainage tunnels - we residents do know they exist. It's just the giant roaches, delinquents, and smell of rotting homeless keep us uninterested in spelunking them.

Ok Blue I will stop. However it may not be me. I am all they way up on the Cape.

But this does tell me to chill with my neighbors dogs.

For $10.00 that would have been a great buy.

And dammit, that's a cool shirt, too!

So I guess they have X number of each size? Glad they offer 2X, as us tall folks need it...

Cool Vegas article, BTW, never heard of that...

Woot launched a new site.
shirt.woot.com

For $10.00 that would have been a great buy.
Free shipping.
Everyday they have a new shirt.

Before the 4th, I walked around and asked people to stop, then I told them to stop, then I called the cops. It is no different now.

This weekend was the Minneapolis Aquatennial or whatever the F it is. There were a ton of fireworks, and although they were a couple miles away, still freaked out my pups (city shot them off - can't figure out homelessness, but hey, lets fire off 50k worth of powder). Hopefully people are done now - cause I agree Blue - it is ridiculous.

Rev. Norb: I'd just like to say that four for a dollar Tijuana tacos seemed like a good idea at the time. Please pass the toilet paper.
