Geniuses, They Ain't

Now I'm not the type of person that watches mainstream media, for a few reasons. Most of what they air, is bullshit, and a lot of it is only what they want us to see. Not only that, but most of the time it is misleading, and usually depressing.

I sometimes see tweets published by the local paper here in the city, while browsing Twitter, and often on FaceBook in my news feed, Iwill see a news story,although a lot of those are so far fetched, you have to wonder why anyone would expect you to believe them.

Anyway, while I was browsing through Twitter this morning, I came across a tweet about a news story from the local paper here in the city I live in. It appears, two thieves stole a car, drove it into a back alley, and fell asleep in the stolen car.

I really don't know how long they had been napping, when the local police, called by a concerned citizen, came to the car, and had to wake them up in order to arrest them. Now if I was a car thief, the last thing I would have done was to steal a car, park it where anyone could see it, and fall asleep in it. Yup, these two are not your average thieves... regular geniuses...NOT!

Now lets move on to our own government, the provincial government of Ontario,Canada.They are going to legalize marijuana here in Canada, and our provincial government has stated that it will probably be charging $10 a gram. That is basically what the average price is on the street at the moment. They also didn't state whether that was with or without taxes...

I would think they would try to sell at lower prices in order to "cut down" on illegal grow ops, because at those intended prices, I'm quite certain the number of "home gardeners" is going to increase, and since that story broke, I'm sure there are people on their way to their local gardening supply stores already!

Yes, we are surrounded by genius, and we didn't even know it.... !!!!!

A Night Out!

A clear evening sky, awarm but not hot, a few cold beer and great company,accompinied by an evening sky, that even in the city, we could see a few stars, that was the evening we had last night. My wife and I sat out on the deck, sipping a few cocktails and talking about days gone by, days to come, and just about anything that came to mind. 

Earlier I had BBQ'ed, and we had sat at our little patio table and ate outside. Not a wasp, bee, or mosquito to be found... loved it, oh, and if you read my last post, not a drink was thrown! 

The air was still, and as the day faded and the darkness enveloped the evening sky, I brought a candle outside. It even stayed lit, there wasn't enough of a breeze to blow it out! 

It was a fun night, one of those types you wish would go on forever... but we are old, get tired faster than we use too, and so after a wonderful evening, we headed off to bed. Of course we had an event, which even this morning I had to chuckle at.

Our grandson was here with us, although he spent the evening playing  with one of those game systems, which he had hooked up to our bedroon tv. He's a good kid, and sometimes he is so quiet we often forget he is here! 

As we sat outside, the phone rang, I hardly ever bring the phone out with us, if we miss a call, and it's important, I figure whoever it was will leave a message, or call back. So when the phone rang, I decided to go  inside to answer, and per usual, the phone wasn't in its cradle, so the hunt was on, the phone itself doesn't have a ringer, but the cradle it is suppose to be on, has the ringer. 

By the time I found the phone, it had stopped ringing, so my wife and I looked at the call display to see if we knew who had called. The number didn't look familar, so we decided, if it's important, they will call back. 

As we sat there trying to figure out who had called, our grandson came out on the deck and asked if we had tried to call back the number on the phone, I said we hadn't, why? Well, he had downloaded a program/app, called Text Now. He said he had made the call, to ask his grandmother if she'd make him a ham and cheese sandwich, he said he didn't want to interupt the game he was playing. 

My response was much like, you're lucky I don't kick your ass... Although my wife and I were both laughing, cause if you know our grandson, "Hurricane Braeden" you'd realize it was more of a joke than anything. He has his grandmother wrapped around his little finger, and she knows it!

So he got his sandwich! It was starting to get late, so it was then we decided to call it a night, but it was a wonderful night!
