Thursday has arrived. Today and tomorrow, even though the temps have not been cold enough for a frost, are supposed to hit the mid to upper 70s (F). Translation, Faux Indian Summer. This is what's been happening over the past few years. Next week, if the predictions are correct, the temps are supposed to drop into the upper 30s (F). That's still not quite cold enough. The sad truth is that after the first frost, our temps might climb into the upper 60s (F) and that would be our Indian Summer.
The plumbers were here yesterday. $$$ I now have a water hookup for a washer on the 2nd floor. There were 2 of them and they did not seem to be pressed for time, since they took over 2 hours for what is a rather simple job. I made a mistake by telling them I could patch whatever holes they deemed necessary, and as a result, they cut a big hole with multiple pieces.
And, for those of you interested, the electrician was just here, the one whose last name sounds like he should be an action hero. Well, I was slightly off in my prediction. He was in his late 20s with no kids or grandkids. There was, as Maddie pointed out, the inevitable butt crack.
As expected, this close to the midterms the Republicans are pumping all sorts of moola moola into negative campaign ads. This is as certain as birth, death, and taxes, and it is all negative. In fact, the 2 things Republicans are truly good at are (1) lying, and (2) negative advertising. This time they are again leaning on their family values, i.e. banning books, attacking Trans people, and immigration, they want you to believe every immigrant coming to this country crosses the boarder carrying 14 pounds of fentanyl.
Finally, the word on the street about Doug Mastriano is that he's a fucking fruit cake, pardon my language.
He already wants his followers to spend the last 40 days until the election by fasting and praying. He's evidently one of those extremists who has no problem lying because... well, you know... he's doing it for God. His zealotry has no problem with war as long as it's for God. Be forewarned, he will not take his approaching loss lightly. He will create a shit show the likes of which Pennsylvania voters have never seen before.
Ask the GOP why they are so anti-abortion, unless it's one of their candidates paying for it.ReplyDelete
Since Trump, Republicans have absolutely no problem about showing their hypocrasy.Delete
Ohh, mid-twenties and butt crack? Any pics?ReplyDelete
As for the negative ads, yes. We get a lot of them in the mail and you'd think we're in Ukraine and Vlad is around the corner with the scare tactics. ALL the repugs running here are extreme right. Anti-abortion MAGAts. It's scary. Our neighbors are repugs, btw. I nod politely. You'd be proud.
As for Matriano, of course he's a wingnut. Ugh.
No pics. The Republicans so desperately want to be authoritarian, and like Vlad, they have absolutely no idea what's going to be in store for them should they even try.Delete
That is not going to be an easy patch!ReplyDelete
It won't be that difficult, though it's not going to be done in 1 day.Delete
Well, you have the picture and I would insist on a discount from their already inflated prices. You may have told them not to worry about it but it is their job and they should have finished it.ReplyDelete
And, Mr. Butt Crack. Well you did not say if he was a mid 20's hunk or just a blubbery mess. So, keep the picture unless it is the former. And yes, you did make me chuckle.
As for elections. You certainly make me glad that I don't live in PA but on the flip side I do live in Texas...a fate only just barely not worse than death itself. Our early voting for my county begins in less than 20 days now so I am doing a lot of hoping and praying for surprising results. My county has about 9,000 registered voters and only 383 of us are registered as Democrats. So we shall see.
I would rather fix the hole myself. I'm particular that way. My ballot should be here either today or tomorrow. Vote Early. Vote Once. Vote Blue.Delete
Two plumbers? That sounds like a porn scenario waiting to happen!!!! I'm just glad today is sunny and nice I couldn't take one more day of rain.ReplyDelete
I agree Maddie - what with that and the "builder's crack" comment about the electrician!Delete
Well, the plumbers are gone. Outside, the temp is 77 (F) and the sun will be setting soon, so that's nice.Delete
We have been enjoying some warmer fall weather but it is cooling down next week as well. Then the leaves will start falling even more. Boy oh boy, I didn't release there were that many cuckoos in PA but they must be if they are going to fast for that guy.ReplyDelete
Cuckoos? we might as well be situated in the Alps. I'd like to think you're warm weather was coming this way, but after tomorrow, I'm sure it's going to be going south of us.Delete
