And to make a good thing moar better, slow-smoked pork will be consumed…NOM!

Paddy --

Hope Il Douchey’s local appearance does not interfere with your day in any fashion. (But do hope for some protesters who bruise his delicate fee-fees.)

Happy Caturday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!

Love the thread pic and Harper reference. Well done, Mac!

Fatwa -- give my fondest regards to Dianna, Kate, and PMK. Those are some good people.

I’ll be sticking around home (I think) today, so Duh One’s appearance shouldn’t impact me.

I’ve been steadily moving over 3 cubic yards of gravel to the backyard these past few late afternoons. Today I’ll attempt to smooth and level it in preparation for moving the fountain into place.

My takeaway from Obama’s election rally speech? 108 utterances of the word “uh”. You would have thought he’d take care of that tic during his downtime.

95°F -- too hot to be working with gravel.

108 utterances of the word “uh”

Always lead with your strength.

I know, Paddy. It was really nice earlier in the week, and today it’s back to the furnace. Do not like.

Hai, Sven and Paddy --

Had a lovely time today but am nackered as we met at Ronald Reagan Park about 11:00 and hung there for several hours there in a covered pavillion and it was in the upper 80s.

Paddy --

Saw your comment too late to pass your regards on today, but will do so tomorrow as we’re going to meet up at a TexMex place for an early dinner (as Dianna has to hit the road to her final destination early Monday morning).

They are all rather good gerbils.

3 cubic yards of gravel’s a lot of schlepping; glad you’re doing it in stages.

108 utterances of the word “uh”.

James Brown could make that work; Obama can’t. 👿

Always lead with your strength.

Heh!

TexMex in Georgia? Sounds a lot like cultural appropriation to me.

Kind of an interesting little piece of video. This is on my normal route to work -- I saw the aftermath of this guy’s truck and camper crushed all to hell, but couldn’t figure out how it ended up where it did. This video explains it.

At the 1:21 mark, you can see the truck/camper get smooshed. Luckily, no one was seriously injured.

“08/06/2018 a dump truck was taking Box Canyon shortcut to the illegal dump at Woolsey Canyon (Fishback). He was riding his brakes instead of using his engine brake to avoid making noise and attracting the highway Patrol’s attention.

The brakes failed. the driver of the truck took it out of gear, and couldn’t get it back into gear. He tried to roll the truck on an embankment and then went across the driveway at 23805 Box Canyon Road. The Kenworth super 10 then hit the homeowners trash cans, a guard rail head on, broke water pipes, street light, sheared off a mature tree, totaled a Dodge pickup with a cabover camper when he pushed it down a 20 foot embankment into the neighbors yard. The truck finally stopped after he hit a telephone pole.”
