LIGHTER


Light shining through the stained glass window shining on to the hall wall.

Not only because I’ve been harassed recently, nor just because of the Washington baseball shooting, but also because of a book titled “Democracy in Chains.”  Because of these things, I’m going to tone my Trump resistance down a bit. 

Author Nancy MacLean writes that that…“Yes…there is a right wing conspiracy” formed by the…”architect of today’s radical right,” James Buchanan.  She feels this has created a hostile takeover of the American Government.  I agree. I hope the horror of today’s shooting by a liberal gunman stops us all in our tracks and leads us to rethink our resistances.

Tone down doesn’t mean I am going to stop commenting.  Just far more sneakily.

  • Himself:  Very  kindly started work at 0600 so he could take me in for removal of that cancerous spot on my neck.  What a dear man.  His CT scan showed no problems, and he is feeling mucho better.  Knee is ok too.
  • Herself:  It will be good to have this all over today.  Now I wait for healing, and I can get back in the pool.  Got all the art books out on the shelves yesterday.  I enjoyed watching folks make piles.
  • Reading:  Another Chapter in Graham’s “Washington.”  It’s a very heavy book.
  • Gratitude’s:  For Poolie who is having infusion after infusion these last three days and is still resisting.

    2. They cut and slice and remove and I often wonder if anything of us will be left to be recognizable. Hubby and I have not one, not two, but THREE big trips in the coming months and we have bought insurance on two of them Since his recent knee surgery and my "broken" toe we are being so careful. I do complain to those who focus in silliness and making fun of the President when I think it is cruel. I do think this man needs help...really.

      1. Yes, he needs a shrink/babysitter in constant attention. He is cruel.
        Trips, what fun. Take sunscreen. LOL I'm looking for a new hat as my usual one is many years old aand crumbling. Yes, we are crumbling too, but think of the fun we had getting here. :)

    3. Sure we can tone down, but does that mean we sit back and not voice our opposition? I still feel that so much of the terrible policies they are trying to put into place, or have already put into place must be protested. Still, it should be done respectively and non-violently, but I didn't think that needed to said. It wasn't the liberals or Democrats who were inciting and encouraging violence at the campaign rallies.

      1. Yes, you are very right. I posted that and got a note from a granddaughter who told me how to get her off my facebook page. That's the best kind of resistance. :)

    5. Mostly, the situation is out of our hands. But as to being cruel about Trump? Why not. Why are we the ones who always have to make nice? Trump and his kind don't care whether we live or die.

      1. I'm still blasting Trump, but what my post did was have a granddaughter tell me how to get rid of my nasty folks. No thy don't care.

    FAIR AND PARTLY FOGGY 1

    Our county fair has a theme every year.  This year it’s a western focus, and we were greeted by these two gentlemen on their horse...
