Friday Fodder

I don’t think I mentioned it, but I had a gnawing feeling that this would be the week the glass shower enclosure would be in. And, well, it wasn’t. Maybe next week. Speaking of gnawing, the man of the termites found the current situation to be what he believes is an isolated ingress point and will be back next week to treat it. But of course, when you see one…

Back on April 20, I wrote about a library book taken out by George Washington was way overdue–221 years overdue. After the article appeared in The New York Daily News, the staff at Mount Vernon offered to replace the book, “The Law of Nations” by Emer de Vattel with another copy of the same edition. I’m not going to ask why there was a second copy; after all, I own three copies of Daphne DuMaurier’s “Rebecca”.

The Heene’s,  Balloon Boy’s family, who has completed serving their jail sentence in that gripping hoax that had the entire nation transfixed on the thought that helpless 6 year old Falcon was being carried away in a giant Jiffy Pop-like helium filled balloon, destined, for certain, for a cataclysmic ending, went to the Sheriff’s office in Larimer County, Colorado, to retrieve the aircraft. To be sure Balloon Dad was getting back his own property, the Sheriff’s Office personnel was assigned to help lay it out and measure it, just in case they were trying to pull a fast one and pass off someone else’s as his.

Note to self: Today is National Memo Day. It’s also National Waitress/Waiter Day.

More importantly, it’s also Friday. I’ve got a huge dent made in all that end of the month work I’ve been working on and have the circles under my eyes to prove it. We have a big weekend planned which I’ll tell you about on Monday, and unless we can sneak one or two, there might not be pictures. Alas! But what I do have for you right now is a curiously intriguing and yet disturbing video and a cute and quick follow-up to it.
