One Last Halloween Post

I was sad to put away these two Halloween Wax Candles.  My Mom bought them back in the 1970’s and they have survived these forty some years.  When I was a child I would love to find these two hiding in my Mom’s hutch at the top of the stairs.  I would get yelled at for playing with them.  I would love when she put them out in the living room for Halloween.  A joyful connection to my childhood.  I’m just thankful they are still with me after all of the moves and all of the years.

Autumn is in full gear right now with Winter knocking on it’s door.

I took these pictures when the leaves just started falling.

Now all the leaves are falling.  This was a good autumn for me 😉

Halloween Is Over

Last night my favorite Teenager came over to help hand out candy.  We had two whole Trick-or-Treaters this year.  Last year we had only one, lol.

This is me and the Mrs. in our 2018 Halloween picture.  It was kind of cool last night so she stayed inside.

Now that Halloween is over  I’m moving on to Autumnal Bliss.  They leaves should be at peak by next week.  These trees look mostly peak but I think one more week.  So I will have to make extra effort to get out and take my picture of Autumn in the next several days 🙂

Happy November!

 

Seeing Jesus

So everyday on my drive to work I see this man who would 100% pass as the White Man Jesus.  Sometimes his hair is down and loose.

Sometimes he pulls it back out of his face.  He always wears sandals.  Sometimes he’s reading a book.  I’m guessing that it’s the New Testament…you know because he’s White Man Jesus.  I think if there is a morning I don’t see him I will panic a little.  You know, WMJ has had enough of White Crazy People and leave.  That would make me sad.

Trump’s America Isn’t So Great

The angry mob isn’t really Democrats.  It’s the Trumpkins Party.  It’s not even Republicans….it’s the angry white mob that are fueled by a man with no wits, no class, no plans for the future, no substance.

Cadet Bone Spurs keeps yelling MAGA.  Well, you big Orange Muffin, you’ve been President for almost 2 years…according to you, shouldn’t it already be great again?

VOTE! VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!

Protect your daughters from sanctioned attacks!  Remember, this is a government that has caged foreign nationals in For-Profit prisons.

The Culture of Boys Will Be Boys

This Brett Kavanaugh thing is ludicrous in that the Republican male dominate Judiciary Committee has decided to attack rather than do what is best for America…again.  Yesterday, Donald Trump compared himself to Judge Kavanaugh in the sense that he too was a victim of a smear campaign by women.  Mr. Trump forgets that he paid these women to stay silent about his infidelity.  If he didn’t do it he wouldn’t need to pay them off.  In the end, his Evangelical Base listened to the words of Satan  and Fox News and forgave Mr. Trump for breaking one of God’s commandments (there are only 10).

The Republican led Judiciary Committee thought they could just do a bums rush on Judge Kavenaugh’s Supreme Court nomination.  No real hearing, no tough questions, just a pat on the back ole boy and you are in for the next 40 or so years.

Mr. Grassley and his cronies have decided to use a Woman prosecutor to question Dr. Ford so they don’t get their hands dirty.  They really do not see the importance of these hearings and why this particular event came to be.  Judge Kavanaugh’s disrespect of women is an important factor because he will possibly rule on Roe v Wade and other women’s  cases.  Since there was no serious hearing on his opinions of the laws the Democrats forced a discussion.  Was it right?  Who knows but what is important is that Judge Kavanaugh is willing to lie about his past to become a Supreme Court Judge.  He wasn’t a drunken fool in High School or College yet his own yearbook says this is patently  lying.  His friend’s book about his debauchery in High School corroborates the things that happened.  Yet, Judge Kavanaugh went on Fox News to plead his case with the Base (White Guys feeling disenfranchised) he made it sound like everyone else was partying.

It’s rather repulsive that Collins and Murkowski, both women and republican constantly vote the party and not for their constituency or in this case the women of our country.

In the end, Judge Kavanaugh was an over indulged teenager with wealthy parent who sent him to an expensive Prep School.  A Prep School knows for it’s debauchery that was only curtailed after a Kennedy died of a drug overdose.  He was an entitled white male in the 80’s.  That behavior of entitlement doesn’t dissipate because he grew up.  His views as a Judiciary are scary, especially for women.  His daughters now can read all about how he and his friends victimized a girl called Renate in their yearbook.

Kavanaugh isn’t the only candidate for this position.  The lack of information allowed by the Republican Committee is circumspect.  What are they hiding?  Why can’t you dump Kavanaugh for a better Supreme Court Nominee?

It’s time for a Woman President!  It’s time for more women to standup and take narrative away from the abuser.  It’s time for Grassley, Hatch and the other immoral misogynists of Congress to take heed that women have an enough of their Crap!

This is my opinion, as a woman and a republican.

Gritty Is A Thing of Nightmares

Can we talk?  I mean yesterday was filled with some crazy ass stuff.

No, not politics….this….

This is Gritty (stupid name) the just unveiled new mascot of the Philadelphia Flyers.  Next to him is the adorable Philadelphia Phillies’ mascot, the Phanatic.  Do you see the issue?  Gritty is the thing that nightmares are made of and the Phanatic is hugable and lovable.

The jokes immediately started on Social Media.  I’m pretty sure that was not the intention of the Flyers organization.  This demented mascot is something that would terrify, not give one the warm and fuzzies.

What is most disturbing is the fact this was the final result of at least a year’s research and demos.  This was the one that won out over all other designs submitted.  This was the final selection by the top brass of the Flyers Organization.  The head shaking of Philly Phans is loud.  We’ve become the national reject of Mascots.  This thing looks like a meth-head not something you would buy in toy form for your child.

I’m guessing someone or someones will be fired over this nightmare of a mascot.  Oh and Gritty as it’s name?  WTH does Gritty have to do with Hockey or the Flyers in general?   So until the powers that be fix this mess Philadelphia is the laughing-stock of the sports world.
