Politics Anyone?

Primaries are done here in Florida, and my two favorite candidates did not move on to November’s general elections.  I suspected as much, but I was hoping that others would get on board after they got to know them and saw how hard they were working.  Don’t get me wrong, we had many qualified candidates … Continue reading Politics Anyone?

DJT and the KGB

I had a few busy and fun packed days this month. I apologize that I didn’t have the foresight to plan ahead and schedule posts for the time I would be away.  Still learning, lesson learned.  Now and then I had a few minutes of quiet while the kids were playing outside and I would … Continue reading DJT and the KGB

Roseanne, Samantha and Free Speech

Voting- A to Z challenge letter V

I was struggling with whether or not to use today’s letter “V” to broach the subject of Voting. Elections or anything remotely in the political arena puts me over the edge. It’s definitely an area that I tend to “self-censor” for the benefit of those around me. I noticed a couple of folks did use … Continue reading Voting- A to Z challenge letter V

Give to Caesar…

The other day, in answer to a recent assignment, I wrote a quick knee-jerk response to a blog post that piqued my interest.  I found the post on a blog I follow that recommended another site.  https://promptlings.wordpress.com/2018/03/27/we-have-met-the-enemy-redux/   Today, I am trying to respond in a more thoughtful way, and hopefully, it makes sense.

The Way We Were is Actually the Way We ARE!

  This past week was my mother's birthday. She would have been 86. Her cousin, who shares the name of their paternal grandmother, celebrated her 90th birthday the week before. As I saw FB posts of Cousin celebrating with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, I felt a selfish sting of jealousy and longing for my … Continue reading The Way We Were is Actually the Way We ARE!
