has rolled around again. It is still raining here and is quite miserable out. I know this because I had to run errands this morning and it poured down on me. It is 57 degrees right now and is to get warmer for the next several days.
The funeral for the young man who was killed in Afghanistan was held this morning. I felt so sorry for the family and all involved as it was pouring down rain at the time. http://www.pjstar.com/news/x515662424/Family-of-Sgt-Dean-Shaffer-warmed-by-collective-love-and-support
This was the second young man from the same school here in Pekin that was killed in Afghanistan in the last 6 months. I agree with a comment Joe made on my last post. I think the polititians should talk more about what is going to happen to get us out of there. I personally cannot understand why we have to bail out every country all around the world when we have many homeless and hungry here at home. Just sayin’. I think charity should begin at home.
That is my rant for today and it isn’t even Wednesday which we long ago declared our official rant day.
I just talked to my brother in O’Fallon a few minutes ago. They had baseball sized hail there on Saturday. Not something I want to see. Quarter size is about the biggest I have seen.
Have a great week. Stay safe and be happy!!
