Oh by the way, folks,
Today we celebrate the birthday of Ottorino Respighi, born in 1879. He was a music composer.
I think that approximately two of my Facebook Friends are rapidly becoming laughingstocks for most of the rest of my Facebook Friends. Those of you Loyal Readers who are also my Facebook Friends (most of you, I suspect) know who they are.
Yes, folks, the Gun Fondlers. They think the Second Amendment is the whole Constitution. They think that possessing a gun will automatically protect you from the bad guys regardless of whether you've had the tactical combat training needed to make effective use of a gun. They think anybody who doesn't own a gun deserves to be shot on sight.
But would I ever un-Friend them? NO!!! They're too much of a riotous laugh!
I don't own a gun because I don't think I need one. The only people I want dead are already dead, cut up, wrapped in cellophane, and the price tags pasted onto them.
Well anyhow, nothing happened yesterday. The underground tron installers concentrated their efforts around the C Street intersection (about a block and a half north of my place). They quit around noon or thereabouts, probably because it was getting awful hot to be doing efficient work.
And it looks like nothing's gonna happen today. Perhaps a bit of rain if we're lucky.
Signs of life
