What a week

We made it to friday. This week has been filled with a little
more drama than the usual. So many things were going on we
don’t know where to begin. The media vs Trump feud continues,
the green energy bunch aren’t happy, it now looks like the
fireworks ban is spreading in our local community, and it’s
hot.

Nothing unusual, just a constant supply of same stuff
different day. The Trump bashing media has gotten to the point
I avoid news and only turn it on when I know the weather
guessers are on. That’s entertainment. It’s getting to the
point I’m waiting for the media to declare “Trump said shit
when he had a mouthful!”

Locally, fireworks are banned for use again. Now a neighboring
city, and the county, want to ban them also. The arguments
for the ban are laughable. The official take seems to be “we
gave people the chance to set them off responsibly and follow
the law and it didn’t work”.

Isn’t that why we have police? If everybody followed the law
like responsible adults there would be no need. As Americans
some do everything to excess. We drive too fast, slide through
stop signs, and push laws every day. Personally, I think the
neighbors put on a better fireworks show than the city did.

Our former city administrator is suing the local newspaper as
he feels said paper slandered him and caused him a loss of
income. Not sure how that one’s going to play out either.

And Happy Birthday to the wife! Even though you longer believe
me when I say it doesn’t cost anything to look, I love you.
Enjoy our friday as monday will get here before we know it.
Now we have to go restock my pizza shelf in the freezer.
Comments are always welcome.

    Happy Birthday to Mrs. Cruisin2.
    So what did you buy the wife for a birthday gift? Torque wrench? SAE open/box combination wrenches? Mystery Oil under the hood carburetor reservoir? Inner tube patch repair kit? Hmmm…

    Brittius,
    she thanks you. Actually I got her a Black Hills gold necklace with some kind of blue shiny thing on it. She likes it, and it’s cheaper than Snap-On.

    Take the Mrs somewhere nice for dinner, and let her supersize it!

    Why is it when the fireworks haters point out the accidents with fireworks, they never give the circumstance of the accident? What part of “Light fuse and get away quickly” don’t you understand? And “Do not hold in hand” means if you hold it in your hand bad things could happen! If we are going to ban fireworks because of a few irresponsible people, may we should ban cars to eliminate drunk drivers. You just can’t fix stupid!

    Anon,
    her mom always takes us out on her birthday, so I went with that idea. Around our neighborhood most were good about ending the fireworks around the designated time and we saw no fires. I agree the coverage didn’t go into detail on their statistics. I seriously doubt their ban will have any effect on next year. Sounded to me like the council members got too many calls during the holiday.

    Black Hills stuff, will get you a hug and a kiss. Snap-On, will get you home.
