First Fall Friday Free-for-all

Happy First Day of Fall, y’all! The Autumnal Equinox happened at 4:02 pm EST today. We can now look forward to shorter days and longer nights, and Halloween candy that is already on sale on store shelves everywhere. Where I live, we also get to look forward to apple festivals, pumpkin picking, and vibrant colors all around as the leaves change before falling off for the winter.

Update from last week’s post: all of my cats have gotten over their illness, thank God and thank you to anyone who offered up a prayer on their behalf! Even old Zeke is back to his usual self, here he is snuggled up with my dog, Bellah, on my bed.

Zeke the Cat and Bellah the Dog – cuddle buddies

Bellah is the mother of my puppies, she had six last October and we kept four, two boys and two girls. My two girl puppies got spayed last week and have fully recovered and are back to playing happily with their brothers.

I know they say you can’t catch a cold or whatever from your cats, but I sure caught something from somewhere as I am now dealing with an upper respiratory thing of my own. I just hope my family doesn’t catch it.

And, of course, the world continues doing that spinny thing that it does, so here are some links:

President Donald Trump returned to New York and gave a stellar speech at the UN the other day. Fausta has a nice summary right here at Da Tech Guy Blog.

Our lovely First Lady, Melania Trump, dressed beautifully for her husband’s big UN speech, as you can see by visiting MOTUS for today’s FLOTUS Friday post.

Some lunatic woman made a huge nasty scene at a restaurant over the presence of a veteran’s service dog, and the restaurant has turned the embarrassing incident into an opportunity to do something good.

The answer is YES: Jim Hoft asks an important question.

Curb your human: Hepatitis A Outbreak in San Diego linked to people pooping on the streets.

Being a fat loser who is an “idiot” is no excuse to behead a person, no matter what some shifty defense lawyer says. Pamela Geller has the story about this ludicrous claim from her would be assassin’s attorney.

Mel Brooks outs himself as a fellow thought criminal.

Deja Vu? History does repeat, apparently, and that is ay okay in this case! 

The fact is, if you are too young to remember what it was like when Ronald Reagan was President, don’t worry.

You know exactly what it was like — even if you weren’t born yet.

Because we’re living it all over again.   READ THE WHOLE THING

I hope you all have a nice weekend and that you enjoy the beginning of this beautiful new season.
