Here we are on the verge of the Nation's Birthday.
I had a discussion with Howard over at Windknots & Tangled Lines about people drowning in local rivers (his and mine). It went something like this: Warm weather, cold rivers, and Boneheads = drowned Boneheads.
Well, we've haven't even gotten to the 4th and today the firefighters have already rescued three out of the confluence of the American and Sacramento Rivers. Only one was alive. Ya tell them and tell them and tell them and they still get themselves drowned. I guess some of the younger set aren't as bulletproof as they think they are.
So, tomorrow and Sunday we are doing the Yard Sale thing. I can't believe it, we put Saturday and Sunday in the paper, the two signs I put up this morning as a "notice" of the yard sale said Saturday and Sunday and we had no less that 20 people drive by wanting to know where the yard sale was. I was standing if front of one of the signs I had just put up and someone stopped and asked where the yard sale was. By then I was in no mood for stupid and I pointed at the sign and said "See the sign? Saturday and Sunday from 8 to 4". I guess I insulted their intelligence because they drove away mumbling, probably remarks about the rude guy on the corner.
With that said, I'll leave you with a "Happy 4th" and a little saying from Confucius:
See you all next week.
