Finally Friday....

and the sun is shining nicely out there.  Temps. predicted for low 70's, so plan to spend as much time outside today as I can.  Unfortunately it will be shortlived as the weatherman says.  Rain possible tonight and on an off the weekend and all next week.  I tried changing channels hoping he was wrong, but alas, they are all sticking together.  Enough already.  Rain swells the rivers and rivers flow south.  No more is need down there.

Getting things together for Jimmy's benefit Sat.  So many generous people donating items for raffles makes your heart just swell with love and appreciation. 

Learned yesterday my son had his tires slashed at his workplace, along with others.  He came across the guy doing it and chased him, getting his description, license plate # and description of the truck.  He said the guy was driving away watching him on his cell as he called the police.  He going to check today to see if they caught him.  They went to the house but no one was there at the time.  What makes a person do such things?  They get no benefit from it.  I can't see the fun in it and it only hurts innocent people.  So, he had to have the car hauled home and now has to save for new tires.

Isn't this a funny post.  Compaining about the weather in one paragraph, praising generosity in another, followed by showing the bad in people.  Guess I shoud go out and enjoy the weather we have.

Have a good day!

  1. The trouble with weather forecasting is that it's right too often for us to ignore it and wrong too often for us to rely on it. Let's just hope that the weather is kind to you over the next few days so that you are able to be outside... enjoying the weekend. Good luck with Jimmy's benefit!
    What makes people do such ridiculous and senseless things? Total lack of respect for others and property, boredom, etc. Bottom line is, they have no conscious nor do they really care about the hardships that they cause for another. Sorry to hear about your Son's tires. Karma can be quite the b***h, I hope that the authorities catch the culprit and he is given much more than a slap on the hands!!

  2. Seth said it all for me. Seriously, I was going to say just about all that he did..not only about Jim but about that piece of crappola who was slasj=hing tires.

    Rain heere too. We got a small break yesterday.

  3. I hope the raffle goes well for Jim. Most people have a generous heart.

    Shame on the dumba** who slashed the tires. I hope he gets caught.

  4. Ditto-Seth and Ramblin said it all.
    Storms left here headed for Beths house! SHHHH! Have a great weekend!!!!

  5. To me it seems like you are talented enough to spend your time positively inspite of bad weather. We had the whole work week wash out here in Orange County NY. I am looking froward to one clear day ie tomorrow, then rain again on Sunday or atlest scattered thunderstorms then clear, like that will do any good.

  6. T.G.I.F. -- Here's hoping that you will make the most of this weekend. And remember, as long as you're happy and smiling, doesn't matter how crazy people think you are.
