This is my last full week of 5 hour shifts. I have one day next week... but then I only work 1 day next week.
I sent a blistering email to the VA yesterday. I have borderline glaucoma. I had an appointment scheduled for February 2020, however they canceled that back in September 2019. They did offer me an alternative date 5 days after they called to cancel and I worked that day. So I made a new appointment for 7/22 of this year... and the VA cancelled it, not because of Covid - 19, but because the Dr isn't going to be in the office. So I called yesterday do reschedule and the soonest they can get me in is March of 2021, more than a year and a half after they canceled my original appointment... because the Dr wasn't going to be in the office this past February.
On the cycling scene, I rode one of the Corsica stages yesterday - 19.53 miles. It took me an hour and 10 minutes. My average speed was 16.4 miles per hour (there are some hills). And my little leggies were sore. And what music was playing through my Jabra ear buds for that trek? You all holding onto your seats?
And you know how I talk about presidential moments, those things branding themselves into America's psyche which foretell either the success or failure of his bid for re-election. Well, the Idiot Jerk had another failure with his little walk through Lafayette Park. And then yesterday he had another when he and Melanoma visited a shrine for St Paul II. The Archbishop of Washington denounced the visit, criticizing the Idiot Jerk for politicizing religion. Defense Secretary Mark Esper threw more cold water on the Idiot Jerk when he told the press he had no idea the walk to St. John's was going to be turned into a political photo-op. And now his minions are saying it was Billy Barr's idea. Ouch! Looks like Billy's getting an up close and personal look at bus tires. Oh, shit! and it gets worse. North Carolina has rejected the RNC's bid for a full convention... so they're moving it.
While the bad news is continuing to unfold for the Idiot Jerk, Joe Biden, looking very presidential, gave an emotionally powerful speech up in Philly yesterday.
One needs to be elected in November. The other needs to be flushed down the toilet
