Breaking out… page 126

Day 221 – 10/22/2020

It’s a bright, shiny Thursday morning, with temps headed for the mid-80s by afternoon, so we have PLANS. Can’t waste a day like this. Getting really nice now, but it was foggy when Kim went walking early, and all our windows were steamed over.

South Park
Richard’s Music, still sleeping…

The PickleBallers are playing at 9:00 and then we’re gonna blow this pop stand for a few hours. Going over on the Missouri side to buy a few fireworks just in case we have reason to celebrate on the 3rd or thereafter. Wouldn’t want to be caught without a way to holla, and we can always start a funeral pyre with them if things go south. Again.

Just saw that today’s high will be 85ΒΊ… and tomorrow’s 45ΒΊ. Kansas, you are rarely boring. Tedious, yes, but boring? There’s never time.

So yeah, ready when it’s Go Time. I even put on eye makeup, for me, not the fireworks people or even Kim. The girl part of the old girl is still in there.

    I haven’t worn eye makeup since I was a lamplighter in a middle school production of “Scrooge.” That was about… Oh… mumblety, mumblety…. Well, over 50 years ago!

    Glad to see you guys are still doing all right!

    One of these days, I’m going to have to find out what “Pickle Ball” is!

    I’m like you, when I put on mascara, it’s because I want to see me looking like I have eyelashes, it just makes me feel good.
    Cool that you got some fireworks, I hope you get to set them off before November turns to December at least! A landslide on election night would be great, because we know the absentee votes will favor Joe, right? I’m so concerned this count will drag out for a while… but I’m staying hopeful.
