Wow! I got quite a lot accomplished yesterday... like my whole list. I mowed my lawn and then I whacked my weeds, and then, for good measure I pulled my weeds because sometimes it's fun. Five loads of laundry? Done. A six mile bicycle ride was included in the afternoon. All in all, I'd say it was a good day.
Today I'm going to take a personal day... I need to rest up after yesterday.
Frank Bruni zeroed in on one of the Idiot Jerk's biggest problems. While he's focusing on how the Idiot Jerk treats the LGBTQ community, in reality this is how he treats women, people of color, immigrants (legal and illegal), politicians... everybody except his adoring fan base. He will give them anything to maintain their "ardor," at the expense of every other human on the planet. He desperately wants to be worshiped... He is two-faced. And those who praise him? They are a minority. His approval rating sits at around 40%. A large number of people don't like him. Losing the popular vote and getting elected with only the Electoral College does not give you Carte Blanche to do what ever you want. This has, however, long been a problem with Republicans. Their attitude as for too long been "shut up. We're in charge. We're going to do what we want, so screw you." Their mantra has always been: My Money, My Taxes, My Religion. The time has come to treat this minority they way they treat everyone else. They need to be taught that they have not been Chosen.
Anyway, we had rain last night, so it's a good thing I got my yard work done yesterday. My nectarines are beginning to ripen and I have either squash, or cantaloupes, or both, growing along the side of the house. More dahlias are budding, which means more pictures soon. If it weren't going to be hot and humid today, I'd take the dogs up to the park for a walk. Of course, that doesn't mean they're not going to have fun.
That's them this morning... on the bed... with their once yellow duck.
