You bloggers who can put up something worth reading every day, or even twice or more every day, have my admiration. The muse doesn’t come around and kick my ass that often. I sincerely appreciate those of you who do this, add to my knowledge of the world, and make me think!
Life with Banner is fairly mundane. He has no interest in politics which nicely balances my daily, sometimes hourly, outrage as I read politically slanted blogs, Falsebook positings, and news article. As an example:
Xiden continues to rule by decree with no enabling legislation to support his actions. The Constitution? The (P)regressives regard it as some archaic impediment in the way of their “Build Back Better” pipe dreams. After all, they know what is best for us dirt people.
Perhaps Trump’s greatest legacy will be the number of judges he got nominated and appointed to the Federal Courts. A special shout out for keeping Garland off the Supreme Court.
Speaking again of (P)regressives and the Constitution, will they abide by the provisions of the separate but equal provisions? (Yes, I hear the laughter of a certain globetrotting Arizona resident).
One value in my life is, “Don’t bitch about something if you don’t offer a solution and are willing to implement it”.
I can’t stop bitching and am frustrated that I don’t have solutions beyond voting and resisting. I see this at a national level. So many of us “Deplorables” are fed up but are disorganized and fragmented. How does this change?
Also in the mix is the whole getting older business and awareness some mental abilities are deteriorating. The 5am bladder call followed by an hour of the uncontrolled mind going over a lifetime of errors and omissions. The obituaries of people you knew who are younger than you dying. The checklist by my door that includes keys, wallet, glasses and Zipper!
Banner provides a nice counter balance. Food, naps, walks, car rides, stays with Sisty, and the many neighbors who feed him treats and give him lots of petting is his life. He makes me laugh and smile several times a day. His biggest concern is when he gets to prewash the dish will used to microwave my breakfast bacon.
Not winning the lottery means I should keep working. This inflation is devastating to those who only have social security. Many of my neighbors in this 96 unit Senior apartment building rely on the food bank. Today we have a community cookout that may be the only big meal some will have all week. Sad state of affairs.
To end on an upbeat personal note, my health is good with no crippling ailments and, thanks to a CPAP and pacemaker, I’m still able to do much of what I want. Probably won’t try climbing Longs Peak this year, not that I ever did or even want to, but can do short hikes and make minor vehicle repairs.
As always, YMMV.
ADDENDUM; This is a serious news article? More like floating a balloon propaganda. Maybe the Big Guys 10% has been cut off.
