Not the least concerned over the bicycle itself -- a $59.95 from Reno WalMart. But these kids are growing up like wounded animals!
Well....I declare Summer!
75 F today, absolutely perfect. Sky so clear this evening I "gotta wear shades" to look at the stars. I moved here for a reason. My back neighbor and folks all over town are trimming trees, allowing more sunlight to reach their gardens. The grocery stores are full of vegetables.
In other news, the Sheriff and the District Attorney are suing each other, and the Board of Supervisors are officially "sick and tired" of the incompetent
Sheriff. I voted for this Sheriff. No wait! I did not vote for him. I voted against the incumbent corrupt
Sheriff. There is a difference.
The DA's shit cannot possibly stink in this county, since... a few weeks ago he personally rescued an unconscious person from a burning car.
The person was arrested for stupefyingly drunk driving. Again. Maybe the DA isn't such a hero after all?
The Chamber of Commerce moved into the office of a local real estate firm, pending completion of the Chamber's own new office. On approximately the same day, the owner of the real estate firm tumbled her car into a ditch all by herself and was arrested for drunk driving. Slightly unfortunate timing for the Chamber.
The Lakeshore Lions Club, of which I am a member, holds an annual Comedy Night fund raiser event. We also hold a liquor license. I do not attend Comedy Night, for the sake of my sanity, but a fellow Lion reports that the funniness of the semi-professional comedians from S.F. increases in proportion with the drunkenness of the audience. The event is a roaring success. I asked how everyone gets home afterward. My friend replied: "Luckily."
At the front of a local grocery-store parking-lot sits an elderly 4x4 pickup-truck with a For Sale sign. Various body panels are different colors. The left side is smashed in. The front driveshaft is in the bed. A tire is flat. The registration expired three months ago. The little indicator above the steering column that shows what gear you are in is missing, just all gone -- I think that's a first. There are various sizes and shapes of lug nuts. And so on and so forth. The price is on the broken windshield in white shoe polish, with the addendum "FIRM". How would we live without dreams?
Same old, same old.
Cheers! Beer season opened today.
(You will notice I don't drink if I have to drive in the immediate foreseeable future.)
