Boring, Verging on Tedious
Find it amusing that people with no connection to the NFL, and probably no fondness for the NFL, are jumping the shark to promote their pet peeve. I have little tolerance for domestic violence, boorish behavior, and child abuse but wouldn’t think of trying to hijack someone else’s hard work and accomplishment to advance my own agenda.
Health issues dominate my time and thinking. The pacemaker was a minor annoyance. This nose operation is something else. It is hard to accept the lack of pep, focus, and fuzzy thinking. I know healing is taking place, but it isn’t pleasant. The protective nose piece comes off Tuesday morning and I am looking forward to a good scratching of the blasted itching skin.
Fall is coming. The midday sun lacks the “bite” of a few weeks ago, and snow is falling in the higher elevations. Decent rain this summer, decent crops this year, and fewer fires. Summer in Colorado doesn’t get much better. Soon it will be time for studded snow tires on the pickup.
Even the bungling of the newsmakers can’t get me riled up. What a pathetic patch we are going through. My (p)regressive friends are subdued; can’t get a good rise out of any of them. The political ads from our incumbent Senator up for reelection are so nasty that even folks I know who loath his opponent are uncomfortable. Governor Wishy-washy continues to self destruct, and his opponent gains ground. Too bad his opponent has had his fingers on the fringes of many Colorado financial scandals, bank failures, and the whole Bush family Silverado Savings and Loan disaster of years past.
All for now. YMMV
