The Widdershins

Summer-1909

Summer-1909

So happy Saturday to you Widdershins.  While I’m feeling somewhat better I still have a “meh” feeling and am still going through runny noses, drainage and the rest.  Knowing that you don’t want to hear that, let’s move on.

Love is a heavy thing

And apparently showing your love by placing locks on a Paris bridge is a very heavy thing.  It’s so heavy that it is breaking off parts of the bridge.

The path of true love for tourists in Paris has often involved a stroll across the Pont des Arts and the attachment of a “love lock” to its railings. The key is then thrown into the river Seine.

But the celebrated bridge had to be evacuated at the weekend after part of the railing collapsed under the weight of love locks attached to it. (note: in the picture below those are hundreds if not thousands of padlocks attached to the bridge rails.)

Love-locks

Police ordered visitors to leave and closed the footbridge after a 2.4-metre section of railing broke loose.

The Parisians themselves are very perturbed about the situation, even launching petitions (wonder if they fare better in Paris than they do here?)

In an open letter to the Paris mayor, Anne Hidalgo, the petition organisers complained that the locks were “like a plague on our city’s historic bridges and sites”.

“This is most apparent on the Pont des Arts, which has been terribly degraded, both visually and structurally In a few short years, the heart of Paris has been made ugly, robbing Parisians of quality of life and the ability to safely enjoy their own public spaces along the Seine, which has itself been polluted by thousands of discarded keys.

Oh well…Parisians are usually pissy about something or another.  They will soon be leaving (if they’re not already) and heading off for their month or longer vacations.  Perhaps they’ll be in a better mood upon their return.

It really might have worked had the dog not been there

Poor Christopher Mitchell and his partner Keithian Roberts.  They were just tooling down the highway in Volusia County FL when they got pulled over by the police.  They were pulled over because Mr. Mitchell wasn’t wearing his seat belt. Mr. Mitchell explained that, weighing in at 450 lbs, the car’s seatbelt would not go around him.  Now, I can understand his statement, and although Chris may be unaware of it, they do make seatbelt extenders for cars.  But regardless, he didn’t have one this time and the officers felt that both Chris and his partner were unduly nervous so they called in a K9 unit to check for drugs.  And the dog found some but in an odd location.  Seems that ole Chris had hid the weed underneath a roll of his, uh, stomach fat.  They also found cocaine, a handgun, and $7,000 cash in a tube sock.  The police busted Mr. Mitchell for possession of marijuana and for extra measure they cited him for not wearing his seat belt.

 

 

Okay!  Everybody out of the water…NOW!

What can I say here?  At least this guy is consistent with his fetishes.  He seems to have a thing for pool toys.

A Hamilton man arrested again last week for allegedly having sex with a pool raft waived his right to a preliminary hearing in municipal court.

Edwin Tobergta, 35, of Harmon Avenue, was charged June 11 with felony public indecency after a passerby observed him having simulated sex with a pink life raft at about 8 a.m. on Ohio 4, according to the Hamilton police report.

But you see…this wasn’t exactly his first time in the pool…so to speak.

According to police records, Tobergta was arrested for similar crimes in 2011 and 2013.

In 2011, he was accused of having sex with his neighbor’s pool float and was convicted of public indecency.

After Tobergta’s 2011 arrest, a family member said Tobergta has mental issues and needed help. It’s not known if he has undergone treatment.

In 2013, Tobergta was accused of stepping out of his home, naked, and “having sexual relations with a pool float” within the view of children. He pleaded guilty to to public indecency and was sentenced to 11 months in prison. He was released in May 2014.

Tobergta’s court hearing is set for June 18. He is being held on $35,000 bond.

I bet all the neighbors just hate it when spring and warm weather arrives.

 And I saved the best for last

In a recent Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Annenberg poll, most Americans are ready for Sarah Palin to just sorta…go away.  Please.

Ms. Palin gets the dubious distinction of 52% wishing her to fade away, including almost 2 out of 5 conservatives and Republicans.

For Mr. Cheney the verdict also is harsh, with 42% wanting him to be quiet, and even a quarter of the Cheney base of conservatives and-tea party voters have heard enough.

Sarah, Dick?  Do y’all get the message?  We could mail it to you if needed.  Just sayin’.

Some assorted youtubes

This first one is of a guy who gives swap tours to the tourists in nola.  The video was shot by a visitor on one of those boats and I believe he’s been told to not feed the aligators…by mouth.

This poor little bébé is having some trouble getting the crawling thing down so Buddy the dog tries to help her out some.

This dog does a better job of eating corn on the cob than I do, with all the crowns in my head!

Okay this last one has been around for awhile but I just saw it.  Interesting take on our 24 hour news cycles.  Be advised:  some NSFW words are used, but since we’re all adults here, I trust it’s okay.

 

Okay Widdershins, what’s going on with you this weekend?  Comment below on anything you care to.

Oy, the French! It’s always something with them! Wonder how they feel about sex with pool floats?

Here’s how to fake French on your next vacay to Paris:

I hope you feel better soon, Fredster. Thanks for the fun weekend post!

Beata said: Wonder how they feel about sex with pool floats?

They probably take pool floats with them when they go on their 4 week vacays.

Thanks for the well-wishes (?) Beata. Lots of drainage right now – eck!

And a note of caution for anyone with a Samsung Android phone with Verizon: I kept getting prompted to upgrade the o.s. so I finally did it…it’s the upgrade to kitkat. DO NOT DO THE UPGRADE!!
After you do, it does something to the phone and it will just start eating batteries like crazy! Something in the new os just drains the batteries and you can’t keep a charge on them. I went online to support at Verizon and they are apparently just clueless. I charged up a battery last night, turned the display off and when I got up today I was getting beeps that the battery was very low. My phone is a Galaxy S3 so maybe it’s Samsung’s and Verizon’s way of forcing me to an upgrade. Grrrr!!!

@4: Why the question mark? Of course I am sending you well-wishes!

Beata@5: Oh! My spelling of the term. Wasn’t sure if it was one word or not so I just threw in the hyphen. 😉

I spoke to Chat earlier this evening. She’s still w/out internet and her phone has been going in and out. Didn’t get a chance to ask about her teevee cuz she was worried the phone would cut out on us. She’s okay but just incommunicado right now.

Poor Chat! She’s been without access for days now. Fredster, hope you’re on the mend. We stayed in a Hilton last nite (out of town wedding), and while it was perfectly clean and decent, I woke up with a ghastly allergic reaction, my face all swollen and red, and worst of all, burning. Have had to use ice on it all day. I bet it was becuz they had feather pillows and I’m probably allergic to them. Laker is, and he had a hypoallergenic one with his rollaway bed.

Loved those doggie vids. I’ve seen the cutie with the corn, but not the puppy teaching the baby to crawl. Adorable.

annie@9: Oh it would be enough to drive me nuts. She has a cell phone if needed, but it would just really hack me off to have no service all this time.

I’ve just been taking the allergy meds and that’s helping. We’re supposed to have an actual cold front make it down this far. It’s the one that’s coming down from MN and MI. We’ll actually have some low 60s at night.

That’s awful about your reaction. First thing i thought was bed bugs! 😯 But you’re probably right about the pillows. I can tell you, from a handful of evacuations in hurricane season, we always brought our own pillows (and a spare case for each) and our own t.p. We weren’t looking for Hiltons or even Holiday Inns. We were getting the hell outta town and wanted a place to basically (and hopefully) just hunker down. In Meridian MS there was a Super8 that we stayed a few times. Wasn’t fancy but it was close to a few restaurants.

my face all swollen and red, and worst of all, burning.

I hope that was after the wedding and not before!
