My Dogs Think I’m Crazy

…but they love me anyway.

When You have a 2 ft. Frankenstein in your closet and it’s time to break it out and have some fun…of course I would involve the dogs.  Tara seems to not really know what to do but was a great sport about all of it, lol.


Everything Is Blurry

It’s okay that I’ve been suffering with extreme eye strain, right?  I’m not alarmed because I’ve got an eye doctor’s appointment at the end of the month.  It’s been a cross between using the computer and reading small print.  It’s rather annoying.

I’ve taken on reading “IT” by Stephen King this summer.  I hate clowns more than I hate mosquitoes so that should say something about me.  It’s been a really good read but the print is small.  The book’s size is also overwhelming, 1098 pages.  Add it that I’ve been having nightmares from it makes this challenging on another level.  I can’t read it before bed.  Yup, it’s freaking me out that much.

My bedtime reading is Eileen Fulton’s “As My World Still Turns”.  I miss the old guard soaps that used to grace the airwaves.  There are only 4 left on the television anymore and that saddens me 😦

I miss Erica and Jackson from All My Children and Lucinda and Kim and Bob from As The World Turns and of course I miss Reva from Guiding Light.  So I picked this non-scary book to get me through my night time reading.

It’s been filled with anecdotes of Ms. Fulton’s rise to fame on As The World Turns as Lisa, the one time bad girl who became a friend to all.  No nightmares from this story.

IT is really good and I don’t like putting it down.  Not just because my paperback version has Tim Curry as Pennywise on the cover but because it’s a good read.  I also think knowing very little about the story has been good as well.

Everyone knows about Georgie and is floating boat but that’s pretty much the only party of the story I knew about.  I will never see the movies.  I do not like scary movies.  Even though I’ve seen some of them in my day I’m not particularly fond of them.

I looked at the pile of books at my bedside and beside my spot on the sofa and I’m overwhelmed by how many books I need to catch up on.  The pressure sometimes parallelizes me but I’m motoring on with high hopes!

My reading isn’t helping the eye strain blurriness at all.  Again, I motor on.

The summer has been so humid.  You would think I would be read more just to stay inside in the air conditioning, lol.  Oh well, Back to the grind.  Wish me luck!

Dog Obsession

So my dogs are the funniest beings on the planet.  I know, I know, everyone thinks that.  But seriously, my dogs have thought bubbles over their heads when I look at them.

Is Suzie dreaming of a white Christmas, meditating or asleep standing up?  None of those things.  She’s actually using her Spock Mindmeld to get me to give her treats.

This is a collage of emotion.  They all read the same way.  Give me a treat.

Tara is easier to read.  She just loves being outside on the deck with her human.

Life with dogs is so much better than life with people.  Don’t get me wrong, not all people are douche bags but more than less are douche bags.

Trump’s Fourth of July Parade

So the President who dodged the draft over and over wants a military parade to show the world our military prowess.  Why do all of these pathetic men need to show force as though it’s patriotic.  What makes this pPresident particularly stupid is he dodged the draft during the Vietnam war.  He came out publicly and sad he never agreed with the Vietnam war.   Now he wants to show his manciples (my new made up word for his man+disciples).  And now he wants it with more tanks.

This fiasco is going to cost American’s about or more than his golf outings since becoming President.   If you don’t like being compared to Hitler all of the time then STOP acting like Hitler all of the time.  People in cages without due process, hanging out with and praising other despots and attacking the press and anyone one who doesn’t worship you particularly.    These are all ideals held by Hitler for Hitler.  His people blindly worshiped him and looked the other way when he ruined the country and the world.

When will Americans wake up.  Let’s face it he’s a big disappointment.  Seriously though, was the G20 Summit the best day for “Take your daughter to work day”?  She made America look like they thought they were at the Mensa Conference for INBREEDS!

Because of his fragile ego, Trump’s staff had the USS John McCain moved because just the name upset his fragile ego.  How much did that cost American Taxpayers?!?

This parade isn’t about American Patriotism but what Donald Trump wants the world to see.  He wants them to quake in there boots once the behold the spectacle of military glory on Pennsylvania Avenue.  We are living in the age of the Twitter President.  The look at me, look at me, view the world has of the USA.  In the 2020 election,  we need to think less Reality TV show President and more who will do OUR business.  This is OUR Country.  This is BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE America.  It’s time to stand up and say BS to the billionaires who tell you that the rich will share and trickle down their profits to you.  They will NEVER share their wealth, not ever.  They try to screw each other out of their wealth why would you think they would share with you.  Stop believing the lies of the rich.

We don’t need to have a parade of tanks going down Pennsylvania Avenue (that will destroy the road by the way) to make us feel Pride in America.  We need a real leader to look up too.  A leader who we are not ashamed of or embarrassed to represent WE THE PEOPLE.  We need a first family who doesn’t see a profit model in every Executive decision.  It would be nice not to have to pay for grown children to conduct private business on THE PEOPLE’S dime.

Imagine a better America than the one being run by a family of white trash rich people.



Immigration Crisis

Let’s all acknowledge that most of the crisis’ in the last 2 years have been created by Trump and his gang of Grifters in the White House.  The Immigration Crisis is brought to you by the man who couldn’t get a date if his life depended on it, Stephen Miller.  Trump is a mindless boob who will think you his bestie and will give you anything you want as long as you worship and adore him completely.  You know, whore your self for your own agenda.

First they crippled the Judicial processing of immigrants across the border.  They then sent ICE to raid companies all across the nation.  They secured facilities like an abandoned Walmart to house the surplus of unprocessed immigrants.  Then the numbers swelled.  They engaged more for profit centers.  The media and even members of Congress were turned away from these centers when they came to investigate the conditions.  Children were separated from their parents and held in “juvenile centers”.  There some were sexually abused by the for profit center’s staff.

Fast forward to this week.  Investigators finally evaluated the conditions.  They were appalling.  Children sleeping on cold floors with foil blankets.  No sanitary assistance and barely fed.  Murderers are treated better in not for profit facilities.  These are children.  If the children are treated this way how are the adults being treated?


This is how the Trumplican Party conducts business.  For profit and coldly obtuse.  It’s the Trump way.  The Trump way is to create a crisis and them supposedly fix the crisis and then take a pat on the back for the great fix.   Only, that hasn’t happened with the illegal immigration crisis created by Trump and his evil minions.  Trumplican accept no responsibility for the horrible inhumane treatment of their foreign prisoners.   Although our Constitution provides due process it is ignored by Trump and McConnell and their band of blindly submissive Trumplicans in Congress.  This isn’t America.

Hey Trumplican followers.  Did you know that ICE and their lackeys have been dropping these supposed MS-13 Loving illegals in border towns all over America?  Did you know that New Mexico, Arizona and Texas are overwhelmed with “illegals” that were dropped in their towns by the Trump administration.   Hmm,  if they are so scary and so connected with MS-13 why in the heck would you put your supporters and Trump lovers at risk?

Trump has created Profitable Detention Centers where he holds foreign nationals hostage.  Shouldn’t they be considered Political Hostages?  If another country did that the world would be more outraged.  Why aren’t more Americans more outraged?
