It's a Dark and Gloomy Morning

The weatherman says all these clouds will eventuate in rain by tonight. I certainly hope so; what's the point in gloom if you don't get rain, too?

You think you're having an exciting day? This guy found an unexploded 30-pound bomb while working on his property.

Brigid brings the story of a lady who can use our help. I know we hear about a lot of worthy causes, but this one really is. Go read, and help if you can.

Persons may not allow "attractive nuisances" to exist.

Good thing you don't have a lot of bikini beaches I guess.

Have a fine Sunday Rev. Paul!

Rev. Paul said...

Preppy, it seems that illegal acts are illegal, or something. :) We have plenty of beaches where bikinis appear ... just not very often.

Thanks, Six.

Received this response from jh via e-mail:
1. It should be an equal offense to keep a live moose in a moving airplane.
2. They probably do not have to waste much money prosecuting people who break the law of waking a sleeping bear to get photographs.
3. I was actually wondering about the sling shot rule the other day. It is a long story from the depths of my mind. I was thinking about David and Goliath…… so how does one go about getting a slingshot carry permit?
4. You might be a redneck if you live in your trailer as you are having towed. "Your Honor, I just had to see the newest episode of Honey BooBoo."
5. He’s not a flamingo- he’s family. After all, we have such an huge flamingo population here in Alaska. What if it were a service flamingo? Seeing Eye Flamingos are not as popular as dogs but how dare anyone discriminate against them. 6. If you let a flamingo in your business and your business is in a building that is diligent about preserving scenic vistas do you still lose your “Government Points?” What does one do with these Government Points? Trade them in like Chuck E. Cheese tickets?
7. I may be wrong, but I think it is against the law to attempt to break any law- not just title 9 laws. Hence, the concept of attempted murder. Does this make it even more illegaler?
8. Finally, doing away with attractive nuisances. Hmmmm? If the nuisance looks like Sean Connery he must be done away with however; if said nuisance is unattractive he or she is permitted to live. I see a human rights issue brewing here. Beautiful nuisances unite! Do not stand for such injustice!

jh, I'm not even going to try to top that. Perfect!

Hopefully the day went better!!! It's getting ready to rain here now... sigh

NFO, the day's been fine, although cloudy & dark-ish. We just popped in another season of Doctor Who & called it a day. :)
