Happy DysFUNctional Tuesday, Wheelizens. (And kudos to Mac’s consistently fine thread pics, as well as keeping this place spinning.)

Wonder if there’s going to be a followup to the Peppa Pig “Happy Hanukkah” book called “Happy Ramadan”. (The smart money’s probably on “oh, hell no”…but I might be wrong.)

BK Update: Feeling better as of last evening; currently asleep.

HH-A Update: They’re currently trying to accuse us of another unit leaking from our roof. There’s a leak alright…from the chimney cap (which was not part of our scope-of-work). We advised them of this earlier in the month, but they’re not giving up.

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

A photo from ’38 or ’39:

Guns > menorahs.

But you do what you can.

Looking out my office window, the bobcat came by, leaped up onto the hood of Mrs Sven’s jeep, and looked around for about 15 seconds before jumping down and taking off. Quite graceful.

How cool! I’m betting you didn’t freak out, call 911, and shelter in-place, either.

I bet you also didn’t run out to post video to tiktok of you trying to “pet the kitty”.

Another week begins.

I don’t wanna talk about it.

Maybe tomorrow.

Some good, some bad, I’ll say.

Happy Tuesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, Sven, and dv8 (and Harper!)!

Excellent thread pic, Mac!

Wonder if there’s going to be a followup to the Peppa Pig “Happy Hanukkah” book called “Happy Ramadan”.

If so, I’m sure it will be rather short. Page 2: “ulululululu -- BOOM!”

dv8 (and Harper!) -- I’m sorry that your week is beginning with troubles. Prayers that things will get better.

Drive-by:

Hai, Sven, Paddy and dv8 (and Harper!!1!)!

dv8 --

Bummer your week’s started carpily and hope it improves quickly.

Paddy --

Your Peppa Pig book concept is not too different from Texans, tannerite and wild pigs. 👿

Sven --

Hope the bobcat didn’t ding Mrs. Sven’s Jeep or damage the paint. That’s pretty wild (no pun intended).

BK update: awake and “pretty okay”.

That reminds me of this long ago strip from Doonesbury:

That would get a lot of the gun control people upset today.

I checked the Jeep’s hood -- no scratches, not even paw prints. The last bout of rain got most of the dust off the vehicles.
