The temps are supposed to climb into the upper 50s (F) today, it isn't until tomorrow that we're going to crack that 60 (F) barrier again. Of course, after Wednesday, when I go back to work, they're supposed to do a shallow dive back into the mid 40s (F). We'll have to wait and see if that's true.
As expected, yesterday things were somewhat steady in the retail world of home improvement. I got my 3rd measure for the week. I also talked to a gent who had no idea how heavy a 96 inch wide faux wood blind would be (about 50 pounds). People don't think. I also sold some vinyl tile to a New Orleans police officer who had relocated up to Harrisburg. I brought up The Body in Repose, how it was set in the French Quarter, and had even created an Egyptian night club called the Amon-Ra. He thought that was amusing, then said "it's nice for a quick touristy visit, but it's a bad place to live because of the crime." Just passing this on to those who might be thinking of relocating to a warmer climate.
And, of course, there was something called the Super Bowl on TV. Since I don't watch TV I missed it. Instead, I played Fallout 4. Some guy named Mahomes was the winning quarterback. He evidently was spitting out flapjack comments about how God had was responsible for being there. This was his way of saying that his universe does not extend beyond the 50 yard line, that it's very small. That way he can be very big and very important.
And then there's this:
The Greek gods! I love Greek mythology. But if we think Republicans play with people for fun and games, the Greek gods would be even worse.ReplyDelete
I don't doubt for a second that the Greek gods would enjoy screwing with Republicans.Delete
I admit I don't have a clue what to think about these UFOs. Could it just be to distract from bigger news I wonder?ReplyDelete
They're probably all balloons or drones of some sort. I'm not really worried about them.Delete
Oh, how I loved The X Files! And now everybody and their uncle are finding UFOs? Yeah, right?ReplyDelete
And we apparently have the same temperature! Can you imagine? Not going to sixty, but still. This is the Midwest!
Weather balloons, nothing but weather balloons.Delete
