Happy penultimate day of teh work week, GN!

Antler cats are everywhere!!

===================================================

Sven --

Sorry to read about your aunt; BetterHalfK and I send our condolences.

===================================================

Aside from billing the roof repairs we did yesterday -- and some captioned photo reports of same -- I’m caught-up on paperwork just in time for tonight’s expected rains. Hope the SoCal contingent stays safe and dry over the next few days.

Good thing you got caught up, Fatwa. This weekend is looking nasty out here: wind and rain.

Hai, Sven!

Hope you and Mrs. Sven stay safe and dry over the next 72 hours.

Tasteless but amusing: Smart Call: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Has Been Dead On The Supreme Court Bench For 3 Months, But Democrats Are Febrezing Her Every Day In Hopes That No One Notices

“She’s definitely got a stink to her, but we simply can’t afford to back down on this,” said a high-ranking Senate Democrat speaking on condition of anonymity. “It’s an unprecedented strategy, but as long as we keep masking Ruth with Febreze, we should be able to hang onto her seat.”

“One of her eyeballs keeps falling out,” the source added.

I LOL’d.

Seriously though, think about the people you know who are in their late 70’s and early 80’s. Now think about their mental faculties. Are they as sharp as they once were? Are their decisions as well thought out? Their positions on issues? Now think about how many persons in positions of power -- elected officials, federal judges -- are in that age range. Now remember that some of them were not that bright to begin with.

Sure Happy It’s Thursday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!

Antler cat is not amused.

It looks like the rains have been pushed back a bit, at least in my area, until late morning Friday.

Hai, Paddy!

Just checked SFV forecast; looks like rain is likely to start five-ish this afternoon and taper off Saturday morning. 5.25″ predicted for Van Nuys; bet the golf course floods again. 👿

Not holding my breath, but hope that Trump really goes after the Deep State (legions of unelected, mostly-unionzed bureaucrats, goons, spooks and other mandarins) who remain in place for decades despite changing administrations.

Especially if their unions -- which ought not have ever existed to begin with -- get PATCO’ed down to the bare soil. And salted with the tears of all the faceless people who have in no small part been ruining running this country for generations.

Fair points about older folks -- which pains me at age 60; hoping my faculties don’t get too degraded as I slide further toward senescence. Bah!

Time to yell at clouds; BRB.

Much panic in the air about tomorrow’s storm. It’s going to be a big deal down here.

Starting to sprinkle. Took a last walk around the place, raked up some small amounts of debris, and swept up the back porch. Not much more to do. But strangely, I’m craving waffles.
