Let’s Talk Term Limits and Aging

  Dave and I were discussing politics during dinner the other night. This is why I need Prevacid daily! These types of conversations have quadrupled since January, and I know you all know why.       The primary focus of our conversation was about age in government. It seems like Congress resembles the old guys in the balcony on the Muppet Show. Crotchety old men. Even though the average age in Congress is mid 50’s to upper 60’s, it seems older. This is probably because the ones with the most power to wield are the elders. We all know

Random Ranting, and Some Good News!

  I have been diligently working on the memoir, and the first draft is almost finished! WOOHOO! Just wanted you to know why the blog has been, somewhat, neglected most of this summer. But, as you know, I turn to all of you whenever a rant has built up to the point of making my head explode. I hope you understand and realize how much I need and appreciate you for times like these.   The memoir has been a way for me to escape the crazy news about the idiot in chief, if only for a few hours a

Calling Mr. Mueller!

  I am pretty certain there aren’t any drumpf supporters reading my blog posts anymore, and I’m fine with that. But, if there is even one left I hope they will give this post some serious thought. I know a few people who admitted to voting for him to “shake things up”, so they said. Frankly, I didn’t feel a need for that but, I acknowledged their right to vote for change if they felt that need.   What I feel a need for are term limits. You know how it is when you get in a rut and feel

Old White Men Syndrome

  I’d like to discuss a problem I feel we here in the USA seem to have that most other democracies do not. Old White Men Syndrome.     Now, don’t get me wrong, I love many ‘old white men’. My husband is on that list. I suppose I should change it to read, Old White Republican Men Syndrome. My husband and sons and male friends are more about equality than oppression of ‘the weaker sex’. I’m not talking about niceties like opening a door for someone being a problem, that’s simply good manners and if I’m at the door

It’s Birthday Week!

Birthdays…I’ve had a few!     This Saturday, July 8th, will be my 67th anniversary of life. It’s an odd number and I feel somewhat odd about it, honestly. When I think back on that cold December day when I was contemplating turning 60 and started this blog, I have to say, this one feels less heavy than that one did and mostly because so many of you have encouraged my writing and contributed your thoughts and opinions on this blog. That’s a great birthday gift, I must say! So many changes have occurred since this writing adventure began and

Freedom of the Press…It Matters

  I’ve stepped away from political posts for a while, primarily because I’ve needed a break from the insanity coming from all directions. Every day there’s a new ‘smack my head’ moment emanating from the White House. The New York Times printed a full (double truck) page of drumpf’s lies last week. It is rather sobering to see it all in print and the list is even longer a week later because he can’t seem to open his little-puckered mouth without spewing more lies. I tried to put the photo in but, I have this google app that turns anything

Gratitude and Peace… A Shift in Attitude

  Today I feel like sharing randomness. The insanity in our country today is taking a toll on many of us…too many of us. I’m an admitted news junkie and all about anything that is anti-drumpf, but it’s time to focus more on the positive things in life and get back to gratitude. Mind you, I’m still going to follow the news and obsess about things like why was Jill Stein at that infamous dinner in Russia with Putin and Flynn? When will a ‘deep throat’ show up to get this circus out of our lives and in jail? Admittedly,

Who’s Running This Circus?

  I’m beginning to feel we’re living in a three ring circus. One ring is cruel to animals, another testing the limits of human flexibility and, of course, the ring full of clowns. This is not Barnum and Bailey, it’s our government. Talk about ‘SAD’.     The orange clown only cares about ‘winning’ but, he hasn’t been doing it much lately. When plan A goes down the toilet let’s try plan B and, whatever you do, don’t put my name on it! I don’t know about you but, when I first heard of ‘The Freedom Caucus’, I thought they

Never Give Up!

It has been a rough week for me. I blame drumpf.     Dave got a cold and I got bronchitis. Don’t ask me why because, if I knew that I could defend against it. It’s been a few years since I’ve had this perpetual coughing jag and I wasn’t missing it, that’s for sure. Of course, I waited until I simply couldn’t take the coughing any longer before I went to the doctor. After a good listen to the rattling chest she came back into the room with a nebulizer for me to suck on while she ordered up

The Nuclear Football a Party Favor?

  It has been two weeks since my last post here on the blog. I apologize for slacking but, I’ve been a little depressed and empty of words that make sense or, at least seem to have meaning.     I had intended to keep the politics off this site and use HuffPost for all of that but, I know many of you are political junkies like me and share the same views. I’m sure those who don’t have left this cyberspace a while back. That’s fine with me! I feel bad for anyone who has ties to drumpf fans
