Careening to Oblivion Monday

1a

In the middle of a week of record temperatures, as if unaware of the irony, the business community celebrated the consolidation of its attempts to force the government’s hand to agree to a third filth-generating runway at Heathrow, tipping all species on Earth towards extinction. Everything will die soon, except for cockroaches, and Glastonbury favourite the Fall, who will survive even a nuclear holocaust, though they will still refuse to play their 80s chart hits.

In Norfolk on Thursday, the tarmac melted, and ducklings became trapped in sticky blackness. When a lioness whelped in an ancient Roman street, Caesar thought something was up. Here, solid matter transmuted to hot liquid and swallowed baby birds whole. How surreal do the signs and warnings have to become before we stop in our tracks? Are whales required to fall from the sky? Does Tim Henman have to give birth to a two-headed cat on Centre Court?

    While the Avon product may have protected from mosquitoes years ago, my daughter-in-law says they have changed the formula since the good old days and it’s now worthless.

    Speaking of losing keys, a good friend of mine, her and her husband had, besides their home and garage, an RV like Den’s and a cottage on a lake up in Harrison, MI. They kept all the keys for everything they owned on one key chain. I thought that was stupid, every time one of them needed to go to the store they had that wad of keys.

    While Up North in the winter, Erwin lost his keys in the snow, didn’t know where. He went out and bought a metal detector. He actually found his keys with it, lol.

    My old friend, Diane, is coming out to visit for my birthday. She’ll get here Thursday around 2:00. She’ll stay until Monday, or Tuesday. This will be great! We never run out of things to talk about, and the beer will be flowing, lol.

    Now there’s the planning, the food preparation, blah, blah, blah. Just dyed my hair, check that off the list. Bob said it’s supposed to rain tomorrow so after I play with Q and feed him, heading out to mow. Tomorrow, to the big box for the foods I’ll need for my plans. I’m going to try to have it all cooked ahead of time so I only have to nuke and serve. I’d rather spend my time with Diane talking, not cooking.

    @ Swilly’s after a nominal 40 minutes on the sticks but along the way I stopped to talk to a man who inquired about the sticks. I encouraged him to acquire a pair.
