A reason to go to war with the US


Here are my thoughts…and yes, this is speculation.

I think even though the US officials were in contact with Russia throughout the day yesterday to let them know ‘we’ were planning an attack in Syria…the Russian officials left their people there. Did we really think the Russians care about his people? Putin can easily call them collateral damage. Read more

On the Receiving End…


Time for an OP ED:

There are so many arguments with regard to Mike Pence’s stance of not eating alone with any woman other than his wife…

While I believe as a person, he has the right to make his own choices on a personal level, as an elected government official, this ABSOLUTELY has to have led to discrimination against women in his business dealings. Read more

It All Started With Dan Rather


I was just reflecting this morning about how cynical I’ve become. Or maybe it’s just that I’m allowing my cynical side to show more? Either way, this whole situation created by our current President and his band of horrible men/women has taken it’s toll.

I want to not worry about our world and the latest thing 45 has said or done.

But for once (I NEVER used to pay attention to politics) I feel as though I have to stay vigilant, to be informed, to fight for what’s right – even if it’s in a very small way. Read more

Sigh…


That moment when you’re sitting at work and you feel your elastic waistband slowly roll down…

The Nursing Home Funnies


One night we were visiting with Frank.

He’s the cutest little, hunched over, Jimmy Durante nose character you ever did see.  He’s got a twinkle in his eye and a sly grin when you say hello.

That night he regaled us with stories from when he was a miner.

The man is lucky to be alive.

He incurred injuries when a blast went wrong and he wound up underneath a pile of rock. Three months in the hospital, he got out and completed his recovery.  His doctors told him he shouldn’t work anymore because of his extensive injuries, but he looked them in the eye and said “I have a wife and 3 kids”.  And off he went to work.

At one point in our conversation Frank matter-of-factly, with a nod at the end, said…

“my birthday’s coming up,

I’ll be a hundred,

then that’s enough.”

 

Have a great day!
