Out With The Minions

Ever since I first saw Minions I know I needed Minions.  So I got me some Minions to help pass the time.

It was so beautiful outside yesterday that we went for a little walk in the woods.

The fresh air was amazing.

It made us all a little sleepy.  This was bad because we had to go back to work.

All in all it was a wonderful hour 🙂

PRIDE

Pride is even more important this year than any other year.  It is important because the leaders of the USA are anti-LGBTQ.  President Donald J. Trump would do anything the Freedom Caucus wanted because he lacks conviction on any matter and is easily manipulated because he is weak.  He is weak because he is led by his own insecurities.  Vice-President Mike Pence would have us living in 1950’s America.  Where McCarthyism ran wild and women had very little respect from men.  He in his own words says he refuses to be in a room with other women whom are not his wife.  Apparently he doesn’t trust his manly urges to cheat or assault women.  Thus telling the world…he too is a weak man.

These men are afraid that associating themselves with the LGBTQ community will make them seem less manly.  So how do they handle it?  Well they ignore our right to exist and fight to destroy all the protections that we as the LGBTQ community need from people like…well like them.

This year PRIDE is so much more to our community.  We will not go back.  We are proud of the people we’ve become.  No more closets, abuse, verbal assaults, physical assaults or having our rights removed because the fact is we are Americans too.

Memorial Day – Remembering

Memorial Day isn’t really a day about parades and picnics.  It’s about remembering those service persons who fought for the idea of freedom and paid the ultimate sacrifice.  People like SSG Larry S. Pierce.

SSG Pierce was awarded the CMH.  He was only 24 when he lost his life to protect his fellow soldiers.  Thank you SSG Pierce and his family.  America owes you a debt of gratitude.

In my town the local Post sponsors a parade, picnic and Memorial which includes reading the list of fallen from Our Town.  Remembering our heroes.





I’m proud of Our Town.

Niko Stopped By

Nor’Easter Niko stopped by yesterday.  It is extremely cold still and Niko blew most of the snow into one big pile from the gale force winds he was providing.  All in all, it could have been far worse and even though I didn’t get a snow day I got out of work early.  So Yay me!

Tomorrow starts a small warm up.  Come on 47 degrees!!

Winter Time

It’s been a very mild winter thus far in the Mid-Atlantic Region of the US.  I’m not complaining mind you.  It’s not as shocking to the purse because the heat doesn’t come on every 5 seconds and we’ve had sufficient rain so far that this shouldn’t be a drought year.

On Gray days like this I force myself to get out into the open air even if it’s for 15 minutes.  Sometimes this happens…

 

It was an awesome 15 minutes.  I had to go back to work but I went back feeling a little more refreshed.  I do from time to time miss the snow, but today was a pretty nice.
