Randy in NEB visit to Spo-land

Well a lot of things are happening at once this weekend. One it's my birthday Saturday, and tomorrow I leave to visit UrSpo in Arizona. Last month when I put in for vacation, the powers that be wanted even more hours From me at work. I guess to catch up for when I'm gone this next week. It happens before any holidays, work harder in order to get that extra day off. So most of my time was spent just eat, work, sleep, repeat. Not much time that I was ever online, maybe just to get travel info etc. I haven't been blogging much anyway so I kinda think nobody would really know that I was away. This last Saturday I took an out-of-town road trip to Omaha with someone I met a few years back we got to talking and found we had some things and likes in common. His name is Roy and he's about 5 years older than me, a nice enough guy but I don't think we will ever be BFFs.We had lunch at a Korean restaurant and did a little running around town. Checked out the mil. surplus places. I bought another old 50s GE TV off of Ebay the Thursday before. And since it was just North up I-29 I drove up to Sioux City,IA(120 miles) to pick it up. That Saturday I put about 325 miles on my 2003 Suzuki Aerio round trip and all. I had fun, but I think in some places my friend Roy was some what bored. And Sunday I'm going to Arizona, with all my travels I never got to Arizona or New Mexico, and I'll save NM for another trip. One more load of clothes needs to come out of the dryer and I can finish packing. Big travel day tomorrow. Some time ago I sent Spo this cartoon I came across I thought it was funny and I'm sure he did too. When I get back lots of material for blogging to do!
Arizona, it's the heat!

Bat(s) In The Belfry

 For those of you who may have suspected that I have bats in my belfry, you may be right. I don't know how he/she got in. But I found a bat flying around the ceiling light fixture in the spare room. That's the room where my computer is. I had just got done sending an email to UrSpo. When I noticed a shadow move across the wall. Luckily I was able to isolate the creature by closing the doors and hold it inside without flying through out the whole house. But some how my bat problem got in. After that I called the local cops, they weren't much help. I was informed that unless I had a pet, old person or child they wouldn't send out animal control. The dispatcher suggested I call a bat expert, but they're not on call 24/7 just during the week. I did eventual trap it, about 10 minutes later after getting off the phone with the police and Mr. bat guy's voice mail. I ventured back in the room with a kitchen broom that held said trapped bat. As luck would have it,  it landed on the side of a cabinet and I was able to swat it into a waiting cardboard box. I quickly hustled it outside, set the box on the ground. The bat still couldn't get out so I tipped the box on it's side. It crawled out did a few hops on the lawn and flew off some where into the night. Or should I say morning, this all happened about 2:45-3:00 am.  Now with any luck I won't see my bat or any of his friends again. I didn't get close to it so I doubt that I contacted hydrophobia.

OMG I See Stupid People

This about says it, words fail me.
I saw this news story Wednesday, May 6 in the two biggest newspapers in the state. The Lincoln Journal-Star and the Omaha World Herald.          In the village of Auburn,Ne pop. 3460 in Nemaha county. Not that would mean anything to anyone who isn't from around here, just a little side info.
Auburn, S. of Omaha or S-E of Lincoln.
 This lady? is one of God's special followers has filed a special lawsuit in Omaha. So rather than me you tell it. I have a scan of the news article.        

                                      Her SEVEN page complaint is mostly bible verses and her own opinions.  Now I'm no lawyer, but the last I checked we don't live in a theocracy. Some of the attorneys I heard on TV discussing this lawsuit, could not find a legal precedent to bring a case. Nothing in case law or constitutional law, or even the merit of common sense. But then again even Nebraska has no shortage of morans (sic). And here is just another example of one of many. Maybe she'll get what Anita Bryant got, hit in the face with a creamie pie........Bwhahaha! I said creamie pie.                                                          As Dwayne the Cajun would say: so it goes.
