The cool September morn

I guess I can skip the rubdown with SPF 70 this morning.

Huh. Must be a national-holiday weekend on the horizon. ’Cause there’s plenty grim-looking clouds up there to keep it company.

Looks like a page-one meeting at The Washington Post:

“Gloom, yep. Despair, check. Agony, roger. How about a light feature? ‘How the delta variant stole Christmas?’ We need art, maybe a Barbie on a ventilator.”

Gaia must have the DTs. She’s boiling Lake Tahoe like a teapot and power-washing Tucson like a redneck sheriff blasting hippies and coloreds off his streets. A brother-in-law had to drive from Maryland to Louisiana and back to rescue a daughter whose Nawlins vacation went all Waterworld on her.

And unvaccinated Americans are advised to avoid Labor Day travel. Ho, ho, etc. Unless they’re traveling to a vaccination clinic to terrorize health-care workers.

Me, I’m just glad I got a nice ride in yesterday, ’cause it looks like the surf’s up today. And when it comes to surfing, you can call me Charlie.

    I’ve been meaning to watch Apocalypse Now again.

    I bet they surf now; probably when the rich Americans come to see the “peak.” Pretty soon rich Americans will mountain climb in Afghanistan. Conrad’s words are true, over and over and over………

    Instead of watching Apocalypse, I think I will hit on Coconuts. Want to buy some land in Florida. Right on a barrier island with a view of the beach! Such a deal. And, you get all the free Regenaron you want! We have an infusion center in the lobby operating 27 by 7.

    What is that patch of blue stuff up there over the trees, the stuff with the clouds swirling around it? It vaguely reminds me of something, but I can’t quite place it.

      Youse guyses still getting smoked out up there? Hal was complaining about that the other day. I can’t imagine things will get much better soon with the Caldor Fire running at full throttle. That sumbitch ain’t playin’.

      “The Lake Tahoe Visitors Authority and North Lake Tahoe Visitor Bureaus in a joint statement Tuesday afternoon asked visitors to postpone any planned visits to the Lake Tahoe area due to the Caldor Fire until further notice.”

      Remember The Good Old Days®, when a warning like that would’ve seemed absurd? People took their medicine and saved the deworming paste for their horsies.

    Herb’s feeling guilty. No floods, infernos, twisters here in the Mitten State. Just blue skies and 75 degrees with next to no humidity. And I’m drinking some Tennessee Carmel Whiskey with Apple Izze Sparkling Juice watching the clouds sail by. We have a rare northeastern breeze which is holding down all the shit boiling up from the South. If I can work up the energy I’ll saddle up the bike after dinner and see what all is going on around town. A twinge of Fall feel today and The Strawbs 3 part Autumn song is playing in my mind.
