I’ve tried very hard the last fifteen or so years to remain inoffensive and seemingly family neutral. I don’t write about politics here…though I have mentioned that I am a commie pinko rat several times with my tongue in my cheek. I do not discuss religion either. I don’t often wave my dogged belief in AA in front of all of you just in case I truly offend my very conservative, married into family. I love the Geezer, and he’s most important.
I don’t like family discord. There’s enough of that going around without my waving a flag at the bull. I grew up in a very alcoholic angry family with little flag flying but lots of silent flapping. Silence is just as bad as yelling proclamations.
So without my fussing about it, I do want you to know that I am liberal. Like Gramma Maudie used to say, I have Buddhist leanings. I’m an alcoholic and an old sixties speed freak too. There is no cure, but there is a tool box offered by the program of Alcoholics Anonymous. I have tried to keep those tools well used the last 28 years. I vote my beliefs, and I care. I care about Gay marriage, low fat and low salt foods, and laughter.
There’s that Rule 62 again.
- Keeping those on the east coast in my thoughts.
