THE HONEYMOON IS OVER

That first year was kind of a mixed bag. I came from a disadvantaged background, dad left the family by means of a bigamous marriage while he was deployed on a special mission during WWII. Mom divorced him after getting papers from the U.S. Navy's bureaucracy asking her to give up the family... Sign in to see full entry.

ALL HELL IS GONNA BREAK LOOSE...

Roe v Wade has been overturned. It seems the founding fathers hadn't mentioned abortion, and thus the constitution makes such procedures null and void. Need I mention that women weren't people in those days? They couldn't vote or own property, and in the eyes of the law, a man and wife were one: the... Sign in to see full entry.

STREET SEEN

Mid-Year's Resolution

Starting three days ago I began follow-up on my decision/resolution to declutter and get rid of one bit of flotsam and jetsam each day. The first day I gave a stuffed toy away. It was one my daughter sent as a joke, a really ugly ostrich-like thing designed to sit on the edge of a shelf (like that... Sign in to see full entry.

LOST AND FOUND

Day or so ago I mentioned a missing lizard at my house after son Rich and his granddaughters left. I was resigned to the idea that my little blue and green reptile might have taken a shine to those girls and was on his way to wherever... I'd had custody of Techie (the lizard) since the early '90s.... Sign in to see full entry.

SCREEN SAVERS: MAYBE IT'S NOT JUST A COINCIDENCE...

Yesterday's view was two butterflies on a single multi-flowered bloom. Today's screen saver appears to be sunrise over the smoking pit of hell. Yesterday the humidity was low, the temp comfortable enough for dog walkers. Today's air is steamy and almost unbreatheable, going to bump 100 degrees... Sign in to see full entry.

SUMMER DAZE

There was an old woman lived over the hill and if she's not gone she's living there still... A couple nights ago I stepped out on the porch just after sunset to stand in awe as dozens of lightning bugs did their twinkling, flickering thing. There was even one hovering near me on the porch for a... Sign in to see full entry.

Today's political slant: Father's Day

Herschel Walker, an avowed GOP "conservative" is running against incumbent Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock for a senate seat in November. If memory serves, this race is in Alabama *. Rev. Warnock has presented himself as a principled man, a good representative for the people who elected him;... Sign in to see full entry.

HEP C, and other stuff

If you don't know what Hep C is, consider yourself one lucky duck. Hepatitis is a dangerous liver disease that can stem from several causes. I believe alcohol abuse is one contributor but that may be a whole 'nother curse on humanity. Back in the late 1990's I worked at a community college in... Sign in to see full entry.

PARDON THE INTERRUPTION:

It's intermission time; waiting for Act 3 of the Presidential Fantasies, a long-running play in which a career con man struts the stage in a detached-from-reality play he has created. Act 1 was the big lie about widespread voter fraud, the claim that he actually won the election. No evidence of... Sign in to see full entry.
