Rickie Traeger Blog: Dreamlifter, More Snow, Nascar, Luge, Olympics, Clear Fire Hydrants, Etc…





 

Hope everyone has a safe and fun Saturday!

Nascar is back on TV!  I am switching between Nascar and the Olympics as I type this.  Watching the Arca race and the Mens Luge.  Super excited about both!

William did an awesome video on clearing out the fire hydrants.  Please take a few minutes and watch it. Very informative!  Kudos to William!  (CLICK HERE)

Speaking of, they are predicting another 1-3 inches tonight. (CLICK HERE) So odds are they will be enforcing parking once again. So heads up.  I was told by a meteorologist that the long term forecast shows warming temps towards the end of February!  Let’s hope that holds true!  So enjoy the snow while it is here.

I am a little under the weather today. So kicking back and watching Nascar and the Olympics works out great.  Dunno what it is, maybe just a bug. Who knows. Its not like I am full blown sick, just under the weather. I have a DR appointment this week. So hopefully I feel better by then.

Speaking of DR’s I was able to take my good friend Wizard to his eye doctor appointment. He now has a date scheduled for June. I am super excited for him! On side note, I got lost on the way to his appointment. So he was a lil late. But the doctors office was understanding. Thank god. But now he has a set date to look forward too!

The Dreamlifter left Dallas and flew into Chicago a little bit ago. It is scheduled to depart Chicago at 4:42 pm. And is headed to Japan. I am hoping I can see it fly overhead when it departs.  Hopefully the clouds stay away long enough so I can see it.

Out of all the aircraft in the world, the Dreamlifter is my favorite. I catch a lot of heck from friends for it. Because they like fighter jets, etc… And they think the Dreamlifter is big and ugly. To me, it is unique.  Thats why I like it!  It is unique and has special purposes. It has a special role and one of a kind aircraft.  It is always best to stand out as one and be yourself and unique, than to be just one of hundreds.  😉

Rickie Traeger Blog: Stroll On State, Thief Caught On Camera, Weekend, ADB-S





Saturday November 25th 2017 Blog

Good morning everyone!  I hope everyone had a safe Black Friday!

I went out to try to get some deals, that didn’t happen, LOL.   Did see a lot of people and fans. It was a pleasure meeting everyone yesterday.   I went out early afternoon. There was no way I was going to stand in those long lines, lol.  Probably why I didn’t get any deals.

I learned awhile back ago,  that stores advertise a product for Black Friday.  But they only have 1 or 2 actually in stock.  That way it draws people in to buy other things. And in reality they have 1 or 2 in stock, so they can legally say they had it in stock. And while all those people standing in those loooong lines, get screwed.  So there is no way in heck, I am ever standing in a line again, knowing what practices retail stores do these days.  

OMG, Yesterday was beautiful outside!  I did get to enjoy the weather a bit.  I know it is not going to last long. So enjoy it while it is here. Winter is nipping at our toes!  Hard to believe Christmas is a month away.  I always look at things in a positive note.  That is it is not long before New Years and then a few more months till spring!


Rockford Scanner Stuff:  

A Rockford Scanner fan sent me this video of a thief. This idiot decided to steal a package from their mailbox! Near Rockford Memorial Hospital

One thing I hate in life are Liars and Thieves. 

I guess this dude don’t realize he just committed a FEDERAL offense, so when he gets caught its full jail time. Messing with a mailbox or contents is a federal offense.  So when he is caught, is going to have to serve his full term.

If you know who this idiot is, call the RPD.  

Tonight is the “Stroll On State”  

I will not be attending this year, sorry.

So be sure to send your videos and photos to RockfordScanner@Gmail.com 

Information on it at https://www.gorockford.com/stroll-on-state/  2-9 P.M
