We’ll mention 4 different subjects now, two that touch our
heartstrings and 2 that walk on the fighting side of me. We
feel it only right to mention the two we like first.

This Saturday, October 1st, is the Toys for Tots cruise-in
at NorthPark Mall hosted by the River Valley Classics. Hours
are 5-9 pm, Santa will be there, and the event goes on rain
or shine. If you don’t want your show car to get wet stop by
in your daily driver and drop off a toy.

Then the tale of Shanna and her daughters. She is a
single mother raising two girls who both have a rare
neuromuscular disease. A gofundme account was started last
year and still has a long way to go to reach the goal. Please
go to the link, read their story, and donate if you can.

Ok, now the things that frost my tomato. I never thought in
my lifetime that the U.S. Navy with do away with enlisted
ratings to make the Navy more “gender neutral” and to avoid
offending anyone. I know the radar man rate changed to
operations specialist, but now there won’t be a master at
arms or electricians mate either? This whole touchy, feely,
nonsense has gone to far. It’s the military not Romper Room!

Finally, we got a call this morning that really rubbed me
the wrong way. Caller I.D. just said ‘Austin, Tx’ and the
message started with “This is the IRS and we are suing you”.
Really? I have about a buck 2.98 in my bank account and
almost as much in ready cash which means I have enough to
stay retired until tomorrow.

These scams always make me mad for two reasons. The first is
somebody will fall this nonsense and give them money, and
second because they make me mad. To the caller from Austin,
Tx: please call back. We weren’t home before and would like to
discuss your problem.

And now, even though the wife and I shared a pizza last night
I am hungry for another. Enjoy your Friday and upcoming week
Comments are always welcome.

    Toys requested by the Toys for Tots are new, unwrapped toys. No stuffed animals. Personally, I go to the close out aisle at my local discount store. I’m able to purchase more toys for my money.
    Also, the Toys for Tots Motorcycle ride will be this Sunday, Leaving the west Kimberly Wal-Mart at 1:00. They will travel down Division to third, across third to Brady, up Brady to Kimberly, and east on Kimberly to Hobby Lobby. If you happen to be caught by the event, please just get out of your car and enjoy it. Within a few minutes it will be past. Thanks!
