The background on this one reminded me. Are you all still burning? Our news outlet quit covering the fires when Ginsburg croaked I hope all is well with you and yours.

Ginsburg justice?

This caricature is from a web. Not to be political, but it says "what should he do at the time of protests and forest fires." And it is over a year old.

I'm the most apolitical dude ever, I was just wondering if you all were still on fire.

Cartoons And FIRES

Post by VWNate1 » Thu Sep 24, 2020 7:47 pm

Alex ;

I am loving these cartoons you find ! .

Yes, the fires are STILL HERE DAGNABBIT ! ~ The wind has shifted from off shore (bad, brung the fires down the mountains to 8 miles from my house and burned up some houses in Arcadia & Monrovia & filled the valley with choking acrid smoke, couldn't see beyond a city block) then the winds shifted to onshore and the flames went away back up over the mountains and into the Antelope Valley, (bad, ,more houses burned and they're all choking on the smoke, we're only getting a little bit of it s I'm back working out side again) .

We're not as bad as Oregon & Washington I don't think (?) but it's not good here .

As I rode over here to the free WiFi I could see the smoke from the Bob Cat fires rising up behind the San Gabriel Mountains .

Alex lives in the San Fernando Valley, I'm East in the San Gabriel Valley .

Gads, I'm a '40's model, myself, but still have some working parts or spares left over and, for the most part, I am the original, too. :-)

This is pretty much how every repair on my Frankenbike looks to me when I start it.
