Happy 2015 -- Day 2 from drizzly, Brenda-missing Larryville, GN!

I see that Mac found a pic of my feline analog. 😉

Guh. BBL.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

“On Thursday, Senator Reid received treatment at University Medical Center in Las Vegas for injuries sustained in an accident he suffered while exercising at home in Henderson.

“A piece of equipment Senator Reid was using to exercise broke, causing him to fall and break a number of ribs and bones in his face.”

I think that’s just a cover story:

Just spoke with MuchMissedK; when I informed her of Dingy Harry’s fitness mishap, she said, “I wonder which one of his wives is beating him?”

Heh.

All is well in Orlando, save for the normal chaos of a new baby; FTR and granddaughter will -- hopefully -- be discharged sometime today.

Happy first Friday of the New Year, Gerbil Nation!
Hai, Fatwa!

Now that the parade is over, we can begin cleaning up, so that’s what we’re doing today.

Hai, Paddy!

Hope the cleanup goes swiftly; I’d expect it’s an onerous task compared with the creativity and excitement of actually building the float.

My cousin and his son were volunteer First Responders for the parade. He probably had some “stupid attendee tricks” and/or marching band mishaps to deal with; I ought to call him over the weekend and find out.

Also read that you CA residents have more than 900 new laws coming online this year.

Criminy.

This just in…and strangely apt:

By clean-up, I meant cleaning up the house and putting away Christmas. The floats are still on display at Victory Park and the job of ‘cleaning’ them is one I would charge a princely sum for, not one I’d do for free.

Mac -- Mean-spirited “hehs!”

Paddy -- Glad “cleaning” meant your home rather than schlepping to Pasadena.

I think this is pretty disgusting -- an article in Police Chief magazine suggesting ways for cops to generate new revenue streams. Among some of the helpful hints:

Fine increases by 50 percent

Pay-per-call policing

Resident fee similar to a utility tax

Tax or fee on all ammunition sold in the city

Plenty more despicably bad ideas at the link.

No problem, just reduce my taxes by the amount that already goes for ‘law enforcement’ and allow me to defend myself and my own.

Oh, and I think pay-per-911 call is one of the dumbest, least safety-oriented proposals imaginable.

Sure…just make sure you have written permission from your local sheriff to exercise your constitutionally-guaranteed, natural right to self-defense.

Then you only have to worry about surviving your local donut-swilling, uniformed, state-sanctioned Torpedoes / Revenue Generators when your scanned plates come back as belonging to a CCW holder.

Oh, and I think pay-per-911 call is one of the dumbest, least safety-oriented proposals imaginable.

Since they legally have no duty to actually protect you, it makes perfectly good sense from the Po-Po’s standpoint.

Better than A Flock Of Seagulls.

Lessee…it’s a murder of crows, a pride of lions…might it be a bunghole of Cornholios?
