Bag of Randomness for Wednesday, September 12, 2018
Every now and then I receive an email about a neighbor’s vehicle being broken into. However, nine times out of ten it’s stated the vehicle was left unlocked. I don’t know the legal or technical definition of an automobile break-in, but I tend to think the neighbor is being dramatic when they state they can’t believe such a thing can happen in a peaceful neighborhood. I’m surprised people don’t lock their vehicles anytime they step out of it. I’m reminded of the time a neighbor, about eight years ago, decided to move out of the neighborhood because someone stole a handgun out of her garage in the middle of the afternoon and she no longer felt the area was safe. I was amazed she didn’t store the gun in a safe and secure place and simply left the garage open all day with it exposed. Heck, I feel safer she’s gone.
I saw a local news report about how the Texas Baptist Men are mobilizing to the Southeast to help aid in any post hurricane efforts. I have some friends who help in similar ministries in different denominations and they always are jealous of the coverage the Texas Baptist Men receive over their support. I’ve never researched it, and I’m not complaining about people helping people, but I’m sure the Texas Baptist Men does a really good job of marketing themselves or reaching out to the local media.
It wasn’t until yesterday I realized that the actor who plays Howard Hamlin in ‘Better Call Saul’ is the same man who plays Professor Laskey in ‘Saved By The Bell: The College Years’.
Beto O’Rourke was on ‘Ellen’ last week and tonight he’ll be on ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’. Back in June, Senator Ted Cruz played basketball against Jimmy Kimmel. The only way I think Ted Cruz loses this election is if Obama campaigns for him.
I just can’t dogear a book, I feel like I’m disrespecting it. Magazines, on the other hand, they are free game.
I only have bits and pieces of the story, but WifeGeeding’s father wrote Queen Elizabeth a letter. It may have included or referenced an article he found in an old magazine which referenced her wedding and tugged on his heart. A Lady-in-Waiting was kind enough to reply.
