Rob Ford's Drunken Night on the Town
When I stare at that mugshot of Rob Ford. The one that was taken after he challenged a Florida cop to take him to jail for drunk and stoned driving, and was promptly arrested.
I can't help wondering whether more people should have realized where that spoiled son of a millionaire was heading.
Because now we all know eh? And it's not pretty.
Rob Ford's appearance at the Taste of the Danforth festival Friday night is raising fresh questions about the his activities away from City Hall. Late in the evening people near the festival began sending out Twitter messages alleging that the mayor appeared to be "drunk," as he made his way towards the festival.
And that so soon after this.
“You owe me money,” a convicted drug peddler screamed at Rob Ford after bursting into the mayor’s home and later threatening to kill him.
And while we wait to find out whether there is a video of him smoking crack. Why so many of his homies keep getting murdered, shot, beaten, or jailed...
Why so many of his staff are abandoning him or being fired.
Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has lost another staff member — the eighth to resign or be fired since mid-May, when the crack video scandal triggered an exodus from his office.
And of course, whether anybody is still running Canada's largest city.
Oh boy. I could go on because it really is beyond belief. But since it's the weekend I'd rather end on a positive note.
By updating the story of the little farm he couldn't kill.
As you know when I last left it the whole farm was buzzing with the news that Jake the old Eeyore donkey had finally made a friend...
Buttercup the jersey calf...
But sadly it didn't last...
Buttercup was moved to an enclosure with other young animals including a baby alpaca...
And a baby miniature horse...
And Jake ended up with the sheep...
Who he barely acknowledges.
Or just by himself...
Which all things considered, I think he prefers. Because an old Eeyore can't be TOO sociable eh?
And as I reminded him it could be worse.
The farm is still there, still free, and more popular than ever. Jake didn't end up in the glue factory. He is greatly loved by me and those who take care of him. And the grotesque Con Rob Ford will NEVER be re-elected Mayor of Toronto.
And for once the stubborn old donkey agreed. Sort of...
Hmmmmm...I suppose so...if you say so...you might be right...or NOT.
Did you say Ford's SCREWED?
Oh well, let's PARTY !!!!!!
And so we did...
The farm was saved.
But who will save us from Rob Ford?
Have a great weekend everybody !!!
