Let's try all this again.

First of all, I never thought in the least that you were a bigot.  In fact, it seems more that I am or that I profile types and that is bigotry.  I just think that most blacks are Dems.  So it surprised me that Dr. Ben was black. It is the first time I have seen a black candidate within the Rep.  But then Obama was the first with the Dems so it should not surprise me.  I am ashamed that I have the preconceived notions.  I will work on that.

I am glad your echo was not real bad and a year is not too bad, though bad enough considering.  Glad to hear your numbers were good.  Mine hopefully will be fine by the recheck in 2 weeks.

I found the movie for Dr. Ben but decided I wanted to read the book more as I always know they are more accurate.  Always seems there is entertainment changes in movies.  I do have issues with Dr. Bens stance on homosexuallity, which is a subject near and dear to my heart.  I am going to look for the book on Kindle.

We are having unusually warm weather for May. It has been in the 70's and today 74 but humid.  Lots of humidity but the rain keeps missing us.  Warm and wet is the forecast for this past week and days to come but so far we really have not gotten the rain. I was hoping for great weather for Mother's Day but it is not to be...though you never know.  We are going out to Joanne's.  My contribution is to be veggies and dip.  Easy as can be, just a lot of cutting up, lol. I buy premade dip. I never seem to know what veggies to have.  Seems someone always says what no ?  Yet I bring so much home.  That works alright thought since I love veggies and will eat them up.

Mom is gone to one of Jason's baseball games and my alarms for checking blood and taking insulin are going off so I have to go.

Todays tag is brought to you by a Whip Challenge, lol.

Hugs,

Hello.

Yesterday was a really rainy, low key, do nothing day.  Can't tell you how I enjoyed it.  ;-)   I probably should feel guilty, but I don't.  It was overcast all day, then in the afternoon the heavens opened and we had some real gully-washers. They even have snow in today's forecast, but I'll be surprised if we get very much.  

I remembered Dr Carson making a really dumb statement about Gays, and then walking it back.   He also opened his mouth and inserted his foot about gun ownership.  I don't know what he actually said, but he made several statements later to reassure everyone that he fully supported the Second Amendment.  I'm sure he can't win the Nomination.  He is definitely not a politician and he doesn't have "handlers" ~ or if he does they aren't very good.  There is no way you will have the opportunity to even consider voting for him, but still in so many instances I share his views.  He's common sense and holds Political Correctness in the same "high" regard that I do.  Ha.  He believes in the America I grew up in, when it seems that so many no longer do.  My poor country is fractured into so many teeny tiny pieces, and everyone is a victim, walking around waiting for someone to offend them so they can pounce and punish.  It breaks my heart, and for the few minutes when I listen to Dr Carson, I feel a small glimmer of hope that my poor fragmented country can become America again.  

I think there are a lot more Conservative Blacks than you might imagine, though most still are Democrat of course.  Much of the Left can't seem to accept a Black Conservative or a Woman Conservative, and they are often quite vicious to them when they don't fit into their proper "boxes".  Still more and more are "boldly going".  They are mostly well educated, articulate and successful.

I think we all make judgement based on our pre-conceived notions, but we're learning.  ;-)

We did have snow predicted for Mother's Day, then they changed the prediction.  Now I think maybe it's back.  I hope it turns out to be nice for all the Mom's and their families who are celebrating them.   Mike and I don't have any living parents and of course we aren't parents, so our main "job" on Mother's Day is to stay out of the Restaurants and Garden Centers.  lol

Well, nothing else to share right now, except to thank you for the great tag!  That's so cute!

Today's posting is brought to you by photo's.  My wrist is really hurting and I am wearing my brace so it makes typing hard.
Spring in Lakeside Park, not my photos but beautiful.  Josh is going to take us through the park tomorrow.
 

























This one had special filter.
Also Josh and Sam (they sometimes do gigs together) played at the Farmer's Market.





They played free but were able to have a guitar case open for tips.  Did not hear how they did.  Mom and Joanne went and the Market itself was pretty sparse.  It would be better when the produce starts coming in.
Today tag was a number challenge...had to use
3 shapes
 2 filters 
1 mask

Good Morning and Happy Mother's Day.

We got SNOW.  Heavy, wet, damaging snow.  Our lilacs and Potentilla were out in bloom and our new Mock Orange was leafed out though not yet flowered.  All buried under heavy wet snow, hopefully no permanent damage.  It's supposed to be below freezing tonight.   Our Maple tree in the front looks to be ok, but our Canadian Maple in the back is definitely damaged, how badly we won't know until the snow melts off.  Branches that were reaching for the sky yesterday are touching the ground today.   We can't reach the branches with a broom or whatever from the deck.  Sad.  I really hate late Spring heavy, wet snows.  :-(

We have no plans except to hide out today and avoid the crowds.  No idea what we are having for dinner.  


I LOVE the pictures!  How absolutely beautiful.  I sometimes tend to forget how lovely your part of the country is.  Thank you for sharing them ~ and our cute Josh.  I hope he made a lot and makes more when things are in full swing.

I'm so sorry your wrist is hurting so much.  You take care of you!   Thank you for my new tag.  I love getting them, but please don't think you have to always make a tag for me every time you make one for yourself.

Have a lovely time with the family today.   

Happy Mother's Day to your mom!

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY

I am so sorry you had to deal with snow today and happy that your plans did not include going out, so that the snow did not ruin that, lol.

My sister Diane ended up bringing us home and swinging through the park.  It was overcast and rained off and on throughout the day so it was not as beautiful as the pictures but it was still quite pretty.  A lot of petals down due to the rain but that was pretty cool looking too.  Neither Diane or mom remember all the flowering trees along the lagoon and throughout the park and we are thinking they are new in the the last few years.  I said maybe we just have never been through the park in early May and they agreed that could be it too.  But we all enjoyed it.  We had a nice time at Joanne's until the end and then Josh and Jason kind of made us feel bad.  Jason came in and got us because Brent was ill and did not want to be that close to us to bring us out and Suz would have had to bring 2 vehicles out and Diane's vehicle was full of stuff.  Suz and family had left and Mom wanted to be going home and Joanne said who wants to take Gma and LouLou home?  Brent said I would but shouldn't and I agreed, I wasn't going to be in the same car with him (nasty cold).  Jason said he wanted to take a nap tell Josh to do it, Josh said something to him and the next thing you know they are fighting (Physically) Joanne stopped them and Josh stormed out an left.  Joanne said fine, she would bring us home.  Diane said this is ridiculous, and she went out and sorted her car so that there was room for both of us and she brought us home. She should have done that from the start and brought us too.  It kind of put a damper on things at the end but the park perked us all up.  Wish Joanne could have seen it with us.  I am sure she had a lot to say to her boys after we left and when Josh comes home.

I ate good but I had 2 desserts :(  Strawberry Torte and Cheesecake Bars.  Both were yummy!

I kept my splint on all night and day until we got home from Joanne's and then I had to take it off it was so uncomfortable.  But it paid off because between that and the tylenol it is feeling good.  I know it will not last but it is great for now.

Hugs,

 Good Morning! 

It certainly looks different today!  Snow was all melted by afternoon, and today it is bright and sunny and heading for a high in the higher 50s, still kind of cold, but a whole lot better than yesterday.   Our Canadian Maple looks to have survived with it's branches intact!  I was sure we had lost some yesterday.  Leaves look a bit wilted and I'm sure the lilacs that were in bloom the day before are no longer blooming, but it looks like no permanent damage.  Whew!

I'm glad you had a mostly great time on Mother's Day.  I suspect Joanne had a few words with the boys after you left, but I can relate to the feeling of not wanting to do something that you should do.  I have that feeling more often than not lately. Ha!  I suspect later they regretted not being more gracious.  They're good kids.    It may have worked out better for you and your Mom with Diane taking you for a drive through the park.  Likely the boys wouldn't have done that.

I know that feeling ~~ Oh, we've missed the blossoms (or whatever), but sometimes things are even lovelier in their own way.   I remember the first time Mike took me down Hwy 1 in California.  We stopped at "The Ghost Trees" and I felt so bad that it was overcast and I wouldn't be able to get good pictures.  Later when the pictures were developed (it was a while back ~ lol), they were some of the best pictures I'd ever taken!  

We do consider the cats to be our "kids", but somehow we don't get that excited about Mother's or Father's day.  I guess it's because we never had kids and so never celebrated them for ourselves.  My parents were both gone before I met Mike but we always did what we could to make those days special for his parents.  Now it's just another day for us, one that we do not leave the house so we can avoid the crowds and stay out of the way of those who do celebrate. 

I'm glad your wrist is feeling better.  Don't abuse it now! 

I have the pretty Mother's Day tag saved for next year.  Thank you!  


Love and Hugs,

I am so happy to hear that there is no permanent damage to you tree or plants.
I hear you about not going out on Mother's Day.  We tried it once and never did
it again.  We had 1 o'clock reservation and they were running way behind.  We had
to sit at the bar with kids and buying them a Shirley Temple was not cheap.  We
did not get to our table til nearly 2:30.  We never did it again.
Josh and Jason should apologize to mom.  I do not care about me, but she is so
sensitive to having to be picked up that it really upset her greatly.  I all waiting 
to see if it happens and if it does not, I will have something to say to them.
I am on my backup laptop so I cannot do any creating since I have no PSP here.
I do have incredimail but I already downloaded my mail to it on the other laptop 
so cannot retrieve it since it is set to delete off the server after downloading.
I may try to check those items that do not have to do with creating, which 
most of my mail does, lol.  I am pretty sure it is the cord (adapter/charger)
since I had gotten a warning about battery and all I did was tighten up my 
connections.  Did not realize that the charger was not hot and it always is.  A
new one is due to arrive on Wed. and I pray that is the answer.  And then I am
going to run a back up file ASAP.  Never fails.  I was moving stuff around and
I deleted it because it was old intending to do a new one...which I never did.
Would serve me right if I lose it, but I may lose my mind if I do.
As for the wrist/thumb, it still hurts whenever I use it, but not all the time
like it was.
Luckily I have one tag left in my mail for us.  I was making one when my computer
bit the dust.  That one is lost now...oh well.  Anyway, this one was a mask and 2
tubes by the same artist.  Not hard to do.
Hugs,

Yawn.  Stretch.  Yesterday I had a terrible allergy attack ~ eyes watering, nose running, miserable.  So I took a Benedryl before I went to bed and I slept until 9:30 this morning!    Now, of course, it's 2 o'clock and feels like it should be about  10 AM to me.  lol   I'm behind on everything, AND the allergies started up again so I just had to take a Claritin.  I'm not used to having allergies.  I don't know what the heck is in the air, but it can leave any time!

I really can imagine how your mom felt ~ and you, too.  Boys can be insensitive and selfish, but we hate to not be able to do everything for ourselves and it's hard to ask for help in the best of situations.

I'm so sorry you are having trouble with your Laptop in addition to everything else.   It's like an extension of ourselves and when it's 'sick' it puts us out of commission, too, and you do so much more than I do on line I can only imagine your frustration.  I hope the new cord really will fix the problem!

I bought myself a new Lenovo Laptop and Mike has been working on it/with it for a month, getting all the downloads downloaded and all sorts of other things I don't understand and wouldn't do ~ lol.  Finally I told him "You've had my new machine for a month.  It's MY turn now!" and so yesterday he finally turned it over to me.  Now I have a little learning curve of my own.  The Cntl key is in a different place and I keep hitting Fn-A and Fn-C and wondering why it doesn't work ~ LOL.  Several other things like that for me to get on top of, but I think I'm going to love it.    Now if I can just find the function keys that let you make symbols like a heart or a musical note . . .  AND if I can remember all the passwords that I will need to use that my old Vaio remembered for me, and  . . .  I guess if those are the worst problems I have, I'm in good shape. 

No, you can NOT lose your data!  That truly would be mind unhinging, so I will say a little prayer for your PC, and then nag you to get your back ups done. 

Love my new tag!  Thank you.   I don't know how you do it with all the other things you have going on.

HERE I AM AGAIN.  CHECKING IN ON MY OLD LAPPY.  IT IS VERY SLOW.
MADE THIS BORDER USING TILES FROM THE GROUP TO GO WITH THIS TAG THAT IS ONE OF A VERY FEW I HAVE ON THIS COMPUTER.
CLOUDY, RAINY DAY HERE.  THOUGH NOT ENOUGH RAIN FOR THE FARMERS.  WE DID NOT GET ENOUGH MOISTURE INTO THE GROUND BEFORE THE FREEZE SO THEY ARE HOPING FOR IT NOW.  IT WAS A BIT OF A DO NOTHING DAY, THOUGH I DID START READING A NEW BOOK.  I AM ON CHAPTER 8.  READING A HISTORICAL ROMANCE FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT.  ENJOYING IT SO FAR.
TOMORROW I SEE THE EYE DOCTOR FOR MY YEARLY.  NEW DOCTOR NAMED DR. TAM.  HOPING THERE IS NOT A HEAVY ACCENT.  SEEMS WITH MY POOR HEARING, ACCENTS MAKE IT WORSE FOR ME.  I WILL GET IN THERE AND HE WILL HAVE  NO ACCENT WHATSOEVER AND THIS IS ANOTHER OF MY PRECONCEIVED NOTIONS.
WOW, YOU DID SLEEP IN, LOL.  IT IS NICE, BUT IT THROWS YOU OFF FOR THE REST OF THE DAY.  I WROTE THE BOYS A SHORT WHILE AGO TELLING THEM THAT I THINK THEY SHOULD APOLOGIZE TO MOM.  WE WILL SEE IF THEY DO.  MY COMPUTER IS A USED HP ELITE BOOK AND IT IS THE BEST COMPUTER I HAVE EVER HAD.  I PRAY IT IS JUST THE ADAPTER/CHARGER CORD. IF NOT I AM LOST.  I HAVE NOT TALKED TO KERMIT IN AGES AND I HOPE HE STILL FIXES COMPUTERS.
I HAVE BEEN DOWN HIGHWAY 1 IN CALIFORNIA. IT IS TRULY BEAUTIFUL AND TERRIFYING.  I DO NOT LIKE HEIGHTS.  AND THOSE CLIFFS ARE SO CLOSE.  LOUANN WAS DRIVING THROUGH THE BIG SUR AREA AND THOSE CLIFFS AND TO ME SHE WAS GOING TOO FAST.  I FINALLY LAID DOWN IN THE BACK SEAT SO I COULD NOT SEE AND PRAYED BRUCE WOULD TAKE OVER DRIVING.  HE EVENTUALLY DID.
WE WENT TO THE HEARST MANSION.  I HAVE NEVER SEEN SUCH OPULENCE IN PERSON AS WHAT I SAW THERE.  MY FRIEND NAN IS FROM CALIFORNIA.  SHE IS FROM LOS GATOS A "SUBURB" OF SAN JOSE.  BRUCE, LOUANN AND I DROVE FROM THERE TO LOS ANGELES TO SEE HOLLYWOOD, BURBANK, UNIVERSAL STUDIOS AND DISNEYLAND.  NAN STAYED HOME AND VISITED OLD FRIENDS WHILE WE DID THAT.  WE DID LOTS OF DAY TRIPS TO SAN FRANCISCO, CARMEL, MONTEREY, FISHERMAN'S WHARF AND MORE.  IT WAS A WONDERFUL TRIP, BUT I GOT A HORRIBLE SUNBURN ON THE FIRST DAY SWIMMING IN THEIR POOL.  IT BLISTERED AND I WAS IN SO MUCH PAIN.  NANS MOM MADE ME PUT TOOTHPASTE ON IT.  IT DID COOL IT.  I COULD NOT WEAR A BRA FOR SEVERAL DAYS SO WE KIND OF LAID LOW FOR A FEW DAYS.  WE DROVE AROUND AND NAN SHOWED US THINGS FROM HER TEENS ETC.  BUT WE STAYED IN THE CAR.  I WAS NOT GOING OUT IN PUBLIC BRALESS..... NOT MY THING, LOL.  WE WENT TO GHIRARDELLI AND SAMPLED...DELISH.  CAME HOME WITH A NICE TAN.  PROBABLY THE LAST TIME I HAD ONE.  HAVE ONLY BURNED SINCE.  I HAVE REALLY SENSITIVE SKIN NOW.

Good Morning, my Pretty.

Not much going on here.  We went for a little ride in the afternoon to mail some letters and that was the extent of our outings.

I'm still fighting an allergic reaction to something, and it's really getting old and irritating.  Kinda like me.  lol

  We're supposed to get up to the mid 60s today, but right now it looks like rain may be heading our way.   Our trash pick up is tomorrow, so we need to get that can out tonight too.  No recycles this week.  We just have them picked up every other week.

The news from Nepal is terrible, and now the derailment in Philadelphia.  So much tragedy and sorrow.    

On a much smaller level, do you remember pictures I've shown of Colby the Doberman my great nephew owns?  I have never met him in person, but I am just crazy about that dog.  The pictures especially of Vince when he was a new born with that big old "vicious" Doberman just delighted me. Now Colby has aplastic anemia, and the outlook is not good.  I don't think he's going to make it, and it makes tears come to my eyes just to think of it.  

My other niece, Catherine (Robert's mom and Lucy's Grandma) is moving to a town right next to my niece Mary Ann's in Wisconsin.   Their mom, Alice, moved into a cottage on Mary Ann's property last year.  Soon the whole family will be together again in Wisconsin, where they basically started out. Well, except Robert and Lucy who still live in Denver and Katie & Jack who live in Minneapolis.  I hope we will still be a travel destination for them from time to time.

You mention all of our favorite areas in CA.  Mike had been there before we met, so he took me there on our Honeymoon and then we went back on our 10th anniversary and on three of my 'big' birthdays.

Mike's sister and bil are in Laguna Hills, and when we visited them they took us to Universal Studios where Jaws almost got me!  Bill knows all the best tourist places and exactly when to go to have the best time, so we were able to see and do so much in the LA and San Diego areas with them, and then we've gone "up North" to some of our other favorite places.  I'm sorry we will probably never be able to go again, but we do have lovely memories.

So easy to get a killer sunburn when you are focused on other things and then suddenly realize you are being torched.  I've had a few of those killer sunburns in my long lost youth.  I'm darned lucky I never got any long term problems as a result of them.  I could tell you some hair raising stories ~~ but I've blathered too much already.  Ha.

Oh, my dear Dr Carson.  I'm afraid he's not quite ready for Prime Time. He's made some really cringe-worthy misstatements.  He is definitely not a politician, and that's part of what I like about him, but sad truth is that it will take a politician to win the nomination much less the Presidency, AND I think you have to be a savvy politician to get anything done once you are in the Oval if you really do plan to follow the Constitution, and I know he would.  So, I will wait and see who bubbles to the top.  Clearly Hillary has the right idea.  Just don't answer questions!  lol

Hope your Laptop gets fixed well and easily!    Have a great day!

Good Morning. 

Looks like a pretty day today, with a slight chance of rain.  I took the trash out last night so we have only to bring the can in when it's been picked up.  Either Jake or Barbara will likely bring it up to the garage door for us.  We are so spoiled with our great neighbors.  Aren't we smart to have convinced everyone that we can't do things for ourselves?  lol

As much as we don't want to, we need to move our flower pots from the retaining wall to the rock in preparation for planting them.  We need to position them so they hopefully look good and then make sure they are firmly upright in the rock instead of "tippy".  We bought some slabs to put them on, but we definitely need to make sure they are positioned attractively first.  I'm a concerned that with the kind of pain I get into when I bend and reach and with Mike's balance issues, neither of us will be able to put the slabs under the pots, so we may skip that step.  It's supposed to rain the rest of the week, though you know our Weather Folk ~ we'll see about that.  We plan to plant them with Dahlias instead of petunias this year.  I hope that's a good decision.  Again, we'll see.

That wonderful Doby, Colby, died yesterday.  I know how Aaron and Christina feel.  I don't know if Vince realizes that his buddy won't be coming home again.  I hope he's too young to really be effected.  The silly thing is that I cried as if he were mine, and I never 'met' him.  I just fell in love with him from his early pictures, and when I saw that great big old "vicious" Doberman with tiny Vince, I was totally in love just from the pictures.  

Oooh, I feel your pain.  It's horrid having your PC ~ your extension of yourself ~ not working, and to lose your long post.  Miserable.  I hope your cord comes today.  I've noticed more and more that Amazon Prime's "two day" delivery is NOT two days.  It is sometimes, but it almost seems that more often than not, it is not.  Not happy about that.  I could always get over the (then $35, now $50) amount to get free shipping, so the advantage was two day shipping. If they aren't going to honor that . . . .

Fingers crossed that your cord comes today, and that it really fixes the problem!

Hugs,

Giving this another go, lol. 

I am so sorry about Colby.  My friend Nan just lost one of her cats to a tumor and it is so sad.  I hate it, I know it is all part of the circle of life as Nan told me.  She dreamed she saw Owen and he was chubby and looked healthy and happy.  It made her feel good about her decision.  She said he had been so skinny and the other 2 cats were avoiding him, she looked into his eyes and knew it was time.  It always takes me back to Novia and I was such a wreck.

We have had rain for days.  Cloudy and the sun breaks through.  We really have not had all that much rain...no storms or downpours.  I would love a good storm.

Maybe you could ask Shauna for help with the planters and getting the flats under them.  How soon does she come again.  I bet she would do that for you.

Wed I saw my new eye doctor and I like him.  His name is Dr. Tam and of course there was little to no accent, lol.  I got several mixed messages.  The tech that actually did the lens testing said the difference would not matter much to me and she did not think I should bother with new glasses.  I said, well I would take the new prescription and if these glasses were to break I would then use the new script to get glasses.  Yet Dr. Tam said it was time for new glasses so I could see better and that the new ones would take me from 20/50 to 20/40.  The tech had me look through the new script and then my glasses and I really could not see much difference.  So I am not sure what to do.  Also I have a small cataract on my eye, a 2 out of 4 I believe he said.  But he made it sound as if I should have it done soon since my health was good right now with COPD the coughing would only get worse as time went by.  I really did not know what to think.  He told me the signs to watch for that would show the cataract was getting worse and it is all the things I have every day so I do not know if I will notice so much, lol.  I will play it by ear I guess.

I have to tell you about The View the other day.  There was a black actor on from "Blackish" and they showed an excerpt from an episode where they had to break news to a mother that her sonwas a Republican...OMG, lol.  The howling and the oh no not that and on and on.  So then Nicole Wallace asks him what is so horrible about a black man being a Republican.  He said that blacks just aren't Republicans and never run for office.  This was all being said humorously.  She said one is right now and she said Dr. Ben Carson and he said who and she repeated it and he said "never heard of him".  He meant it.  But then again, I did not know who he was till I heard about him joining the race and then you telling me about him.  But it was really hilarious.

Good night my dear friend.

Hugs,

Good Morning.
 
Getting warmer, heading for the mid 70s.   Yesterday Mike got the flower pots off of the retaining wall, though we still may need to reposition them a bit.  This morning he will bring them over, one at a time, to where I will be sitting on the patio slab and I will clean and plant them while he positions the slab that they will sit on, then brings them back using a two wheeled cart.  Should work, don'tcha think?  We uncovered the chairs and sat out on the porch for a little while after he had finished, and it was lovely.  Looking forward to doing that again today.

 I wish I could stand in that darned rock and trim the Lilac and Potentilla bushes.  They are positively wild looking, but they are in bloom.   The Landscapers are supposed to do that job but they didn't either last Fall or this Spring.  We have complained, and I will remind them again this Fall.  They badly need shaping.  Since they are in bloom we wouldn't want them to use their trimmer and just shape them now without regard to what is blooming where, but I sure wish I could.  Ah, well.  

We did think about asking Shauna to help us. She told us she would do things other than clean for us.  We were paying for her time, not the specific service.  I like knowing that.  Marcela always said the same thing and she lived in Arvada so we knew we could call her for help if we needed to.  We only did that once, and she came and didn't want to be paid.  I added more to her next service.  I hate to ask for what seems like favors even if I'm paying for it, but it's good to know we can.   In this instance, Shauna isn't coming until next Friday, and we didn't want to wait any longer to get this done.  

I'm glad you like your new eye doctor!  I do know what you mean about glasses not helping.  I'm nearsighted, or I was before I got the cataracts, and my near vision was wonderful.  I needed glasses for distance, but that was no big deal.  I never wore them for reading or working on the PC.   Now my near vision is horrible and it drives me crazy.  Both my current eye doc and the previous one prescribed tri-focals through which I can see distance fine, and middle distance ok, and which are downright worthless to annoying for close vision.  I keep thinking that if they removed the cataracts and just gave me clear glass lenses with no correction, I'd be able to see again, and if I need glasses to drive that would be fine.   Apparently my cataracts aren't "ripe" yet, so here I am doing the things I love most (reading and playing on the PC) through a fog, or as if someone is shining a light into my eyes.  I can't even begin to tell you how I hate it.

Laughing at The View!  See?  I told you Liberals won't allow blacks or women to be Conservative!   I'm sure they were "kidding on the square", cuz that's how they really feel.  Lol.

We're all supposed to stay in our assigned 'boxes', but sometimes we just don't fit in the assigned box.  I still laugh thinking about years ago, shortly before Ronald Regan's election when Jerry Falwell came on my TV and told me that "if all Christians vote, Regan would be elected".  Ok, I'm a Christian.  I guess that means I'm supposed to vote FOR Regan.  But less than an hour later, Gloria Steinem came on that same TV and told me that "if all women vote, Regan WON'T be elected".  Hmmm.  I'm a woman, so I guess that means that I SHOULDN'T vote for him.  What to do?  What to do?  Both of them promised my vote, and neither of them had talked to Me!   Ha!   As I'm sure you know, I ignored both Jerry and Gloria and voted Dorothy's way.   I know you did the same.     It does make you laugh the way people lump "All" of any group together, like we are all one organism.  

I have to tell you another non-political funny.

 This should be getting close to Mike's favorite Copper River King Salmon season, so he was looking online to see if it was available yet before going to our local meat/fish store to look for it.  He found some ~~ @ 2 lbs for $80.00!   LOL.  I don't think we'll be ordering it there. LOL.  I can't imagine how it can be worth that kind of money, even if it includes shipping, but we'll be buying locally, thankyouverymuch.  Ha!    

Well, I'd best get ready to go out and plant pots.  

Later my lovely.

It is supposed to be 78 here tomorrow and Sunday, but chance of rain is fairly high so it will be humid....yuck...too soon for these temps. I know I will be miserable. If need be I will go in my room and turn on the AC. I would not mind putting up with it if it would actually rain because we need it.  Oh well...
Glad to hear you and Mike have it all figured out for your pots...sounds like a good plan.  It is also nice to hear that Shauna is willing to do other things to help you out.  Marcela was great for a while but then I think with working the other job she just could not do it all anymore, or just did not want to.
Dear Lord, $80.00?  There is not food I would pay that kind of money for.  I could eat for a couple weeks on that, lol.  
Boy, if we believed everything they tell us on TV we would be so confused we would never be able to make a sensible decision.  The sad thing is, too many people do believe whatever they hear and then pass it along.  I see it all the time on facebook.
Speaking of facebook, I got sick of reading my thread tonight.  Just one horror story after another.  A restaurant that was serving human flesh and had 2 fresh, still bleeding human heads in the kitchen.  A baby whose mother stabbed it in the face repeatedly because it bit her while breast feeding. And so many more.  I just got so disgusted this the world.  What is wrong with all these people.  So many sick individuals and sometimes a group as a whole.  I may have to give up news in order to save my sanity.  
I was reading my new blood sugar med and it said that it may be hard to keep blood sugars under control in times of stress.  How stupid is that??  It is the blood sugars that are stressing me, lol.
Going to do a little reading before bed.  I have read 3 books int he last week or two.  Need to start another.
