I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

Mine's red

Once again Friday happens to be the last day of my work week.  Starting tomorrow I have three days off and I'm hoping to get a number of yard work chores scratched off the list.  The temp is predicted to hit the mid 70's... of course, then it's going to drop back down to a more seasonal upper 40's to mid 50's.  That's fine.  Nights are not supposed to be dropping below freezing.  This is a good thing.
I have a Nikon Coolpix B500 camera.

I have a red one because... well... I like red

  It's nice.  Nikon wants me to store my pictures in the 'cloud.'  Of course, I don't use their 'cloud," mine are stored on my tablet.  I don't want to have my 40,000 dog pictures floating around in their 'cloud.'  I don't want to have to sign into their 'cloud' to look at them.  Anyway, Nikon decided this camera was not going to rely on my USB cables, not a very smart decision. You see, there's a firmware update...  To do this update, I need to download the files on one of my laptops, take the memory card out of the camera and put it into the laptop, transfer the files to the memory card, reinsert the memory card into the camera and turn it on.  After the update is complete, I will need to take the memory card out of the camera, reinsert it into the laptop and delete the update file before inserting the memory card back into the camera. Son of a bitch!
I saw that the Idiot Jerk in the White House had a rally in Michigan last night.  Believe it or not, I watched about 2 minutes of a replay this morning, volume turned down of course, it's better that way.  His screechy voice makes my skin crawl.  The visual was enough.  This is a man who is seething with rage.  His white base loves and shares his hatred.  Oh, and white is the correct adjective.  I saw one black person, and he was with security.  In 2020 1/3 of the voters in America will be a minority.  Their skin will be brown, or black.  Some will have high cheekbones.  Some will wear hijabs.  We need to insure that not only are minorities registered to vote (they need to start registering now), we need to insure they go to the polls.  This is how evolution happens.  You know, survival of the fittest.
Since the temps are supposed to remain above freezing, this is the weekend I'm going to start my planting.  I've got cantaloupe and squash seeds ready to go in the ground.  And poppies.  And black sunflowers... for something new.  Leaves are budding on my nectarine and peach trees.  I don't know whether I'll get fruit this year or not.  Time will tell.


  1. Just so you know, I'm is dark tan...and when it comes to trump, I wouldnt touch him to scratch him.

    1. That's because you have common sense, and integrity, and a whole bunch of other things his base doesn't have.

  2. Not just people of color will vote against him,but people who are tired of the lies and the cheating and collusion.
    Yeah. Collusion.

  3. We just have to make sure we get as many as possible on board.
