Free Chat Friday, Week 27

Happy Friday, News Viewers. . . . we trudged past the 4th AND heard no fat lady singing. . . . .until she sings, we are still here in survival mode and quoting people who can best instruct us regarding the future:

“All I say is, kings is kings, and you got to make allowances. Take them all around, they’re a mighty ornery lot. It’s the way they’re raised.. . . .All kings is mostly rapscallions, as fur as I can make out.” –The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, by Mark Twain

This is my favorite today; I’m calling it “Planet of the Rapes. . . .” CATCHY, right? 🤩

Independence Day has passed, which sounds momentous about now, but we’re still in it to win it. Let’s talk about the state of the union and the neighborhood, the town square and the muddy river. Mostly let’s talk about life in our particular corners — How are we doing on this July 5, 2024?
