"Monday the 13th"
Beware Friday the 13th falls on a Monday this month. Sneaky bastard. Don't date any black cats, so to speak, or drink any Lime Ricky's till sundown. Then of course it'll all be cool. Other than that it's a fine early fall day in the Emerald City.
I mean besides the rain, wind, and religious riots.
Btw some Chinese navy ships paid us a visit. They looked neat. I was especially happy that the comrades just came to say hi, and buy trinkets. Trinkets that were very likely made in Shanghai.
I'm not complaining. I'd rather run into these guys on the subway than have them off the coast lobbing missiles at us.
In checking out PRC naval design their older stuff is standard old Soviet format, but some of their newer ships seem to follow French designs. Interesting.
Like I sez just another swell day in da Land of da somewhat Free.
