Dead People

A few days ago something reminded me of an old and close friend, now long deceased. At the thought of them, I went off on a mental stroll through the past, and I treated myself to a warm replay of my time spent with that person and of all the quirky (and unique) features of their personality, which caused me to love them and to be their friend in the first place. This was pretty pleasant, and it got me to thinking about…………….

Something Happy

I swear to the gods, that I truly would like to blather about something happy. There are, I know, happy things going on in the world. I am involved in many of them. But, when you only have limited strength to blather, it is hard to get past all the ourageous crap, that Trump and the Tea People are doing. I have a new grand niece, my brother Dirty Jack Nesler was just here for a visit, and I have a hell of a crop of cucumbers, figs and green beans. But, when you get up every morning and read the news, as I do, it is pretty tough not to be fixated on the insanity around us. Here, below, are some samples, from recent news reports from around the net. And, BTW, while I am thinking of it, the New York Times, America's best newspaper, is offering FREE DIGITAL ACCESS to news of hurricane Harvey.

Here are some recent news stories that caught my attention.

Chicken Cordon Bleu

Would you believe me, if I told you, my wife prepared a world class Chicken Cordon Bleu for our dinner? And, that she did it all from scratch? What if, I also told you, she raised, caught and killed the chicken herself?  And, that she cooked it with solar heat, she collected with a broken pop bottle? I should have stopped at the truthful statement, that she did it all from scratch, huh? 

What happens sometimes, is if people get by with one lie, they can't resist telling a bigger lie. And they just can't stop, until their credibility is diminished to zero. That's what is happening to our president, he is on such a roll with his lying, he wouldn't know a truth, if one fell on his phony hair do.

Our president tells Golf Club members, the WHITE HOUSE IS A DUMP.

LOBBYING

Everywhere I go, I hear people saying that 8th Dist Congressman Larry Bucshon has sold his palatial home here in southern Indiana and has moved his family to Washington DC, full time. If that's true, and I believe it is, it might mean that Larry, having put in the requisite 4 years for Congressional retirement, is about to retire from the Congress gig, with full pay and insurance coverage for life. But moving to DC? That makes you wonder. If Larry were just going to go fishing or play golf in his retirement years, why would he need to move to Washington, to do it?

I'm guessing that this means …………………
