Not much going on today – yet.
This fellow works for our neighborhood weed control. This was at 11:30 or so this morning. I am grateful for him. He keeps nature’s nastiest at bay. Weeds pop up making our Pleasant Valley Sunday very unpleasant. Regardless what anyone thinks about weed control (I’m for it because I’m a pretty lazy guy) I appreciate him for dressing head to toe as well as wearing a face/gas mask to protect himself in near 90° weather for my sake.
Back in the ‘80s* The Rolling Stones were already a band for 20+ years. They wrote many popular songs but nobody would have been surprised if they’d broken up and lived off their royalties for the rest of their lives. Instead, Mick, Keith and the boys continued continuing on. They played a television concert which, if you wanted the full effect, required 3-dimensional glasses. I have no pity for anyone who required hospitalization avoiding Mick’s lips jumping at them from their televisions. How many lamps, coffee tables and bowls of Tostitos were overturned by vamoosing viewers?
Just a few years ago The Same Stones released another film but the trick this time it was released on the IMAX screens. There were reports of movie goers fleeing IMAX theaters in terror when confronted by a 70’-tall Keith Richards staring down at them. What shenanigans will ‘the boys’ pull next?
Marge Redmond may be best known as Sister Jacqueline in The Flying Nun, which aired on ABC from 1967-70.
Godzilla trivia: Didja know he was originally meant to be a cross of a gorilla and a whale? Didja?
Well, see, now something has happened today. A neighbor, John, just stopped by to give us two bottles of wine as a kind gesture. The three of us yicked and yacked about stuff going on around the neighborhood. It was very pleasant. Thank you, John.
You do well when you complete the Royal Rule of the Scriptures: “Love others as you love yourself.” But if you play up to these so-called important people, you go against the Rule and stand convicted by it. You can’t pick and choose in these things, specializing in keeping one or two things in God’s law and ignoring others. The same God who said, “Don’t commit adultery,” also said, “Don’t murder.” If you don’t commit adultery but go ahead and murder, do you think your non-adultery will cancel out your murder? No, you’re a murderer, period.
* The 1980s, that is. While we laugh and joke how Keith Richards seems to be ageless, there is no proof this a lie. I vote that it’s possible, maybe even likely, Keith was a guitar player in the 1880s.
