Alligator in the Mon River



Can you ever imagine being the person at VisitPgh or, wherever, who brought up in a meeting one day, “Ya know what we need to spark some fun around here?  A humongous rubber duck to sit around in the river.”

At that point you can just imagine all of the co-workers around the meeting table backing away from the table waiting for lightning to hit, some of them giving their “He’s not gonna be here by the end of the month” snickers and others fanning themselves.   And then the boss says, “That’s a FANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNTASTIC idea!” then all of the co-workers start high-fiving, yelling “hell yeah!” and acting like they had never sold the idea person down the river.

Well, maybe that is what the Mon Valley is doing here?

Yesterday, there were 2 alligator sightings on the Monongahela River near the Belle Vernon area according to this story on WPXI. It lead to an all out search by the Coast Guard and, more than likely, some of the same people who are still searching the Mon River near the point for evidence of the B-25 ghost bomber that may/may not have crashed there in 1956.

So is this the Belle Vernon “bigfoot” or is this for realz?

Time will tell but… is it really worth all of the resources we’re putting into this?

Hey… Belle Vernon, call the Mount Lebo deer cull experts they might… uhhhh.. never mind!  Good luck finding the alligator!


 Thx to @LizPGH for the heads up on this story.

More Toilet Paper Jagoffery


This is not my first post about toilet paper jagoffery.  There have been other posts.

But this one shows that we’re making progress in our home.  A previous post showed an empty cardboard tube on the spindle.  Today, there is evidence that someone had made a grand attempt to replace the toilet paper.

But, clearly, something more important and emergent occurred during the TP-changing process…a neighbor’s fire alarm went off and the pooper ran off to use a fire extinguisher to save the family or a baby was stuck in a well and the pooper jumped from the second-floor bathroom window to save the child or…

Well, never mind.  I’m doing my best but, as I write this, I see the bag of recyclables over flowing to the point stuff’s going to start tumbling out but, someone will find a way to stuff one more plastic bottle in that thing rather than take it outside to the official recycling bin. I’m a failure as a parent!

Someone chaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaange the #$#@ing tooooooooooooooooooooooooilettttttttttttttttttttttt paaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaper PA-LEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEZE Ya Jagoffs!
