new word to use.....

last night a giant sand storm covered
Phoenix Arizona
 and several other towns
from this event
 the word of the day
 week
and maybe even month
has taken over the airwaves
HABOOB
.......
this is what a sand storm is called in the
Middle East
 as a couple of my readers know
Tammy?  :) :) :)
I was almost asleep when the husband
yelled at me to turn the
Weather Channel on
to see this awesome sight
I got up to see it on the
BIG screen!!!
and was truly amazed

(taken from the www)
it was 50 miles across and a mile and a half high


this morning it was a toss up between the
Haboob
and the
"baby killer"
from the "trial of the century" as they called it yesterday

I stuck with the

watching the hot-air heads going over and over the verdict
that they all said would be the opposite of what it is
just got my goat
and there is no justice in this at all
I'm sure most of you won't know what the heck I'm talking about
but
I unfortunately got caught up in it
 "OJ" like
when I was couch bound the other week
a young mother accused of murdering her baby girl
 was found not guilty
and
we all know she is
but it doesn't matter what we think
it's the jury who decides and that decision stands forever

 because the court system works the way it does
the jury did what they were told to do
 and
the reasonable doubt was too strong for them not to find the way they did
the prosecution did a lousy job of proving their case
 and she walks
sickening and sad and unjust
for the baby who is no more
one of the lawyers on one of the many networks said
minutes after the verdict
 that Casey could go and stand on the steps of the courthouse
and confess to having committed the murder
and nothing could be done
no one could charge her with anything now
that's how it works
for all and everyone
a murderer can get away with it
and there is nothing anyone can do
it's what we call justice
and somehow it works
and somehow it doesn't
when it turns out the way you think it shouldn't
whatever happened let's hope
Karma comes into play
and someone, somewhere, sometime
pays for it

I am trying to find ways to use up some of the stash
I have too many ideas and not enough hands
it's grey and rainy and miserable
but it's hot hot hot
and it feels weird
the light is strange and it feels like fall
from the inside that is
outside it feels like
it's
HOT!!!!
hope you have a day free of
Haboobs
and
any other nastiness!!!
