It’s a beautiful day out…. FUCKIN’ HOT already at 11:00am.
And it’s “EARTHQUAKE WEATHER” and there’s a weird light today.
So, we have sh*t to do. Lot’s of sh*t to do. And we need a PLAN.
Is the CoronaVirus Pandemic ever going to end? We are still blogging.
Some people are acting like it’s done. Some like it never happened.
WAKE UP MOTHERF*CKERS! It’s not over. This virus is a weapon.
It didn’t come from bats and a Chinese open-air market….
IT WAS RELEASED FROM THE WEAPONS LAB DOWN THE STREET.
But don’t quote us yet…. they still want you to believe the lies.

NOTE: A magnitude 6.0 earthquake struck Little Antelope Valley,
California,
near the Nevada border at 3:49pm local time on July 8, 2021.

5:55pm: We took a nap. We watched TV and surfed the interweb.
We published our “Dandelions” Blog Post. We worked on other stuff.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside.
We listened to some podcasts this afternoon. We made some dinner.

On The Menu: We had to use the thin-cut top sirloin steak in the fridge.

7:00pm: We took the big dog outside and gave him some one-on-one attention.
We made and drank another iced espresso.

And we got a pursuit! But it didn’t last very long.
PIT Manuever, foot bail, and Suspect in Custody!
“Run Forrest! Run!”
