We are now past the summer solstice and the days are getting ever so slightly shorter, yet in my world it's the nights that are getting shorter. I know, you are sitting there and asking yourself "how can this be?" Well I have a cat... A cat that has decided that I should not be sleeping late. A cat that thinks my getting up at sunrise is a good thing. A cat that if she keeps this up is going to get... (Have to be careful now, my wife reads this and so do a few friends who love cats) a good talking to. Yes, I'm sure that will work. Not to worry, I was going to get up early to get the trash out anyway but a little after five in the morning is a bit much. On the down side I can't make coffee because the grinder is loud enough to wake the dead and I don't have any amphetamines so I'm pretty much stuck.
Looks like today is going to be the last good one for a few days. As per the weathertainers it's going to get hot hazy and humid in a nasty way. There is a front heading up from the gulf with temps hot enough to melt led. I guess that means I shall become a cellar dweller. Our basement has been a life safer when it has gotten stinking hot because it is always a cool sixty eight degrees. Summer, winter, it don't matter, the temp is a constant. As for me yesterday I finished cleaning out and rearranging the workshop so a little later I'm going to have a go at the new/old trailer before the heat settles in..
To my American friends here is a story that might be a little interesting to you. It's about a police interaction with a black driver that took place a few days ago and made the news. This, folks is how a traffic stop should be done. With the number of police I have dealt with while at work and the amount of Cops I know, I would bet that this is a lot more normal than we think. We don't see stories like this often because sadly in the media "if it bleeds, it leads" is a way of life.
Did you know there has been a diplomatic "war" going on for the better part of a century between Denmark and Canada? It's all over a small God forsaken little rock of an island in the sub arctic between Greenland and Canada. When Canada visits they hoists their flag and leave a bottle of Canadian Club with a note saying "Welcome to Canada." In Denmark's case they raise their flag, leave a note saying "Welcome to Denmark" and a bottle of Schnaps As for me I think this is a very adult way of waging war and I wish more countries would settle things this way.
Well on that happy note I shall leave you for today. That's it from up here North of Disorder.
