Crazy With A Cherry On Top

Hazelnuttin sent me this story, strangely from a Welsh news website, although the story originates in California and she lives in Chicago. The world goes like that sometimes.

It has to be this sentence that really gets me though...

"The farmworkers told police the suspect woke them on Saturday morning by rubbing spices on one of them and smacking the other with an eight-inch sausage."

Okay that has to be one of the most bizarre paragraphs in a news story ever. Never mind the sausage, he rubbed spices on them? Who would think to do that? What spices did he use? Totally off the wall! (Bet they were relieved though when they discovered it was a sausage he had hit them with and not something else.)

Summer Is Officially Over

The Hobbits have been back at school a couple of weeks now and today, officially, summer is over.

The question is though...when did the summer actually happen. I feel I may have missed it at some point, it sneaked it, shone happy rays of sunshine for a few hours and then skipped away before I noticed.

Meeja says that this has been the dullest, wettest August since before we can remember.

I says; you are not kidding there mate.
