Briefly. (time to cook more bacon)
Two things that piss me off: People and running out of beer.
Trivia #1: How many times does Elton John say “Bennie” in the song ‘Bennie and the Jets’? – 24, 34, 44, 54, 64, 904
Trivia #2: After Albert Pujols (700), who are the next two in career homeruns for active players?
Ian! 10 confirmed dead, currently. My heart goes out. Flooding, loss of power (more than 2.5 million), devastation for so many. Georgia/Carolinas next. Good luck to all.
Pouring salt on the wound: Caskets at an Oakland, Florida, cemetery were exposed after heavy rain and flooding caused by Hurricane Ian.
On this day: Babe Ruth smacks his MLB record 60th homerun on September 30, 1927. – Aaron Judge hit his 61st 2 days ago.

Article I’ll skip: George Clooney says he and his wife made a ‘terrible mistake’ by having their twins learn Italian.
Scary watching Tua Tagovioloa on the turf last night. It appears he will be OK.
There is a billboard on route 16S in Ossipee, NH that reads: “When you die, you will meet God.” OK, whatever. But that begs the question, what do you say/do when you meet God? Do you kneel and kiss his hand? Bow? What do you say? “It is a pleasure tom meet you, your Holiness?” “’Sup?” “Sorry about the time I snapped Julie Brown’s bra in the 6th grade.”
They said it: “I’m trying to think…” – Al Michaels. You don’t “try” to think. You either think or you don’t think.
This week’s sign of the apocalypse: The S&P 500 has lost about $9.1 trillion market value in 2022.

Be careful out there. (It’s a jungle!)
I heard it in a love song. It can’t be wrong.
Happy National Love People Day! (and here I am saying they piss me off)
“I’m gonna buy me a ticket
As far as I can
Ain’t a-never comin’ back
Ride me a southbound
All the way to Georgia, now
Till the train, it run out of track
Can’t you see, oh, can’t you see
What that woman, Lord, she been doin’ to me
Can’t you see, can’t you see
What that woman, she been doin’ to me”
