It’s raining again, and supposed to rain even harder tomorrow. That’s great news for Socal. Sure, it’s a cool, gloomy week, but we have 50 or so other weeks in the year with sunshine. Easy to deal with unless you’re a tourist choosing this week to vacation in sunny San Diego.
UK and LSU met in a slugfest last night, and the Cats came out with a win. This was a quality win against a good team – the best we’ve played this season. And we won in spite of the reigning Worst Ref in the World TM Doug Shows. Shows has a history of incredibly bad calls against UK, and he had a couple of them at the worst time last night. Shows should be banned from the sport. Nonetheless, this was the UK team I expected to see! Let’s be happy, but not too happy – that’s exactly one in a row. And we play Alabama next at their house, a *very* tough outing.
I’ve started making reservations for our annual Cabo trip in February. One day of fishing and a couple of evening meals at places where you need a reservation. It’s always a great week. No other travel planned for January (for me), so looking forward to Cabo a month from now. Whales galore, fresh fish, fresh air, great photo opportunities, some quality tequila, and front porch seats on the Pacific. I’d stay there a month if we could.
Here’s a picture of a Mexican band that entertains at the resort every year lately. I like the light.
That horrific story about a Tesla crash 250 feet down a cliff off CA Highway 1 has taken an even more horrific twist. The occupants, two adults and two children, all survived – an absolute miracle, and perhaps a testament to the Tesla’s design. But the male driver has now been arrested for intentionally driving over the cliff. I imagine the other adult in the car, a woman, had plenty to say to police once she was rescued. Yikes!
I’m really enjoying reading about the infighting among House Republicans and the election of the House Speaker. Kevin McCarthy is despicable and deserves all the mud they’re dragging him through. And the Republicans, with “control” of the House, decided to remove all metal detectors from entrances to the House as their first official action. That will allow the gun-carrying wingnuts to bring their weapons into Congressional sessions (?!). I’m sure that will turn out well.
