Yesterday was a day of accomplishment! Most of the lawn got mowed. Sadly, I had to recharge the battery on the mower. The rest will be mowed today. I did some planting. Got in a 13.86-mile ride, my legs were a bit sore last evening. Set up the new storage and downloaded a game: This War of Mine, you scavenge through the town to get supplies to make your house more livable.
Of course, I have to tell the weather is marvelous. The high today is supposed it 78 (F), which is a very good temperature for yardwork. I have buds everywhere. I can't wait for the color. I even planted some marigolds. You know? The stinky, pretty flowers that last all summer. And an elephant leaf plant.
For those interested, the next book is coming along fine. The Body Under Ice. Mackinac Island in the winter. There is a ferry service which takes you to the island most of the year. However, in the winter it shuts down. When that happens, there are 2 ways to reach the island: flying in on a small plane or driving across the ice bridge. The ice bridge... now, doesn't that sound like fun? Believe me, if I had a choice of how to get to the island in the winter... I'd probably take the ice bridge.
Just in case you're living in the United States and haven't noticed, states are having their primary elections to choose their candidates for the fall. Sadly, everyone in the news media is focused on the Trump endorsed candidates. They see this as a gauge of his stranglehold on the Republican party; the more he loses the weaker his grasp. He lost a really big one in Nebraska last night, picked up a smaller one in West Virginia. The more he loses, the angrier his MAGA base gets. Republicans have entered slice and dice politics and the red meat their carving up and throwing to the crowd is their own. Very nice.
Al Jazeera has called the move by the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v Wade 'so far out of the mainstream,' which I find fascinating. Al Jazeera knows a little bit about extremism, so when they say the current actions by the Supreme Court are out of the mainstream, they're talking about serious extremism.
Finally, Chuck Schumer is having the Senate vote today to... well, they're not going to get enough votes to codify the WHPA, but every Republican and every Democrat who vote against it will publicly identify as being against a woman's right to choose. You see, this whole thing is about choice. It's not about anti-abortion or pro-abortion, it is about choice. Those who are against choice will lose.
