My mind was musing this morning as I sipped my coffee and watched pundits pundit.
Most seemed simultaneously excited and fearful of the possibility of Mr. Trump becoming President of these United States.
There is a chance he may lose the Republican primary, but with every delegate that he gathers, there seems to be an unease. By the end of my coffee, everyone seemed to calm down and settle into acceptance that he really may win the nomination.
He may, actually, become President. Yes, he would need to win the general election but there appears to be a H-U-G-E (Trump voice over) enthusiasm gap that could lead to poor Democratic voter turn out and high Republican turn out.
I began to think…so what….if he really goes off the rails, then Congress can get rid of him. Well, Congress has agreed to nearly never ever agree on anything. With Trump’s marketing skills, I cannot imagine anyone up for election in the next 4 years would agree to it.
So the Supreme Court could take care of it…..well, I suppose, but they will be short a Continue reading
Danced with the rain all day today. Weatherman says it was “el Niño.”
…a name that I may never be able to take seriously.
One of my neighbors was putting up Christmas lights this evening. As I made my way to the mailbox, I complimented her on how pretty they were. She smiled and told me thank you.
She then grew the biggest smile and sweetly wished me a happy Chanukah.
Now, I am not certain why this neighbor of several years thinks that I am Jewish. Perhaps it is because I used to decorate my bushes with blue lights and had a white lit tree. Just always thought it was pretty. Perhaps she overheard me telling someone about a DNA test that said I am 12% Ashkenazi.
At any rate, her being so considerate and sending her warm thoughts across the yard was the biggest highlight of my day.
I smiled back and said thank you.
Thought I would share what most of my weekends involve. I think I will get a new shirt to wear on the weekends, “Would Rather be Blogging.” I have forgotten who first shared this…but thank you!
If anyone knows a talented programmer that would like to be rich beyond belief, please tell them to come up with a medical record system!!
What are you up to this weekend? Have a good one!
A couple of months back I had a purple sweet potato that was way past its prime. As I was walking it to the bin, I spotted a paper cup that needed tossing. I picked it up and like chocolate in peanut butter (old TV ad) a marriage was made.
Two weeks sitting by the sink with an occasional splash of water and it had become root bound. I walked it out to a corner of the yard and stuck in the ground.
Tonight I dined!
Have a great week!

The New Fred
Back in 2012, I had a friend named Fred. He lived by my front door and sang to me when it rained. Tuesday I caught a glimpse of the new Fred. He has not sung to me yet, but that kind of friendship takes time.
Remembering old Fred:
