Teh Squeaky Wheel
I guess that “chancla time” was inevitable…
Happy Monday, Wheelizens!!
Paddy and Mrs. O’ --
Safe journeys; have a great time and may you have ballooning-friendly weather.
A compelling argument re proper turlet paper hanging:
Ha, I saw this yesterday and thought of you.
Happy Monday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Mac!
Finishing up the morning tasks, checking the traffic, then we’ll be off. We’ve decided to take the more scenic 101, rather than taking the 5 up through the central valley.
Y’all be safe!
Have a great trip, Paddy! Definitely want a balloon ride trip report -- it’s on my list of things to do.
Good morning, all.
There’s only one television series that’s on my must watch list -- Mr Inbetween on FX. It’s about an Australian hit man, Ray, and his daily struggles. It’s not a premise that I would normally find attractive, but they really pull it off without pulling any punches. Dark, moody, but seriously funny and believable. Season 1 was only 6 episodes, but Season 2 promises to be longer and it started last month. The video below starts with a great scene about how best to interact with the police.
OK, I had to look up chancla.
Huh. So that’s how they do it -- thanks, Mac!
I showed this to Elena years ago and she laughed. She and her sisters knew La Chancla well.
I liked this, it even has a Wilhelm scream.
I saw this headline, Things aren’t looking great for China’s economy, and it may only be getting worse and it made me smile.
Back to fire watch -- strong winds starting tonight and high temps coming tomorrow. A few small fires burning around the southland.
SoCalEdison has called and said we can have power…for now.
I hope you remain safe there. I was just telling Elena about the fires being close to you before.
We had a bit of wind here last night. Heavy lightning and thunderstorm with heavy hail last night. A tornado hit Dallas and did some significant damage, destroyed a fire station, a Home Depot, and a section of small business, but no loss of life so that was a night surprise. It dumped on us pretty good through the night and her sister’s house was really shaken, nobody got sleep and many traffic lights were out today messing up the commute. I think we all came through undamaged this time so that was nice.
