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

Books, books, books

 And here it is Tuesday and the weather outside is cloudy.  Showers are in the forecast until early afternoon.  Temps are supposed to  hover in the upper 60s (F) to lower 70s (S).  Tomorrow, however forecasters are expecting the day to be good, lots of sunshine, lots of warm mid 70s (F) temps, and quite possibly the start of Spring as we expect it to be.

Yesterday was slow.  I spent 8 hours at the flooring desk, well, that's not quite true, at a certain point in time I began walking laps of the building.  I got in over 20,000 steps.  Believe me, that's a lot of laps.  I did manage to get a measure.  That means I'm now an active participant in their measure contest.  Woohoo!

There are noises from the house next door.  I have no idea what they're doing.  Perhaps mudding the walls, or possibly laying the vinyl plank flooring.  For once they are not cutting or hammering anything.

When I did get home from work yesterday there was a box waiting for me on my porch.  My author's copies of The Body Under Ice.  There was a problem in getting them; software issues on Amazon's end kept the order for going through.  The delivery was a surprise since I was not expecting them until Saturday.

A gag order was put on Trump in regard to his rape trial to keep him, or one of his attorneys from posting things about witnesses or evidence.  Will he follow it?  I'm thinking not.  That would me doing something adverse to what for him is normal attack mode.  He will blab and if there are fines he will go to court to keep from paying them, and he'll lose.

Two Republican Representatives in Texas rattled the roof by joining a group of Democrats to push a bill raising the age to 21 for purchasing certain guns.  That was brave of them, but the legislation will fail.  For it to pass, it would mean that Texans Republicans would understand how their total abandonment of gun control is having tragic consequences, it was also mean that Democrats were correct, and they will never let that happen.


  1. Yay for the books!
    Amazon is not the well-oiled machine it wants us to believe it is.
    And Jabba The Orange will open his trap (or his phone) and we'll have one more reason to send him to jail. He's such a dick.
    As for the repugs crossing the aisle to do some good? Well, as you said, the measure will fail, but they'll get the Dems to vote with them in some scheme...


    1. It could also be that for the first time ever, Republicans are beginning to realize that their constituents are not as dumb as they think they are and might actually vote them out of office.

  2. 20,000 steps!!! Well done you! I used to get so much more done when I was working and now, well there's a bum sized imprint in my sofa!

  3. I'm amazed at how many court cases Trump's already lost so it's beyond me why he's even still walking free? At this point if he's not held accountable or being jailed what's the point?

  4. With all the shootings in Texas of late and a GOP that wants more guns and less restrictions, soon Texas will be empty and their votes will no longer matter.

    1. Everything he's convicted of gets appealed.

  5. Yay! I remember that feeling when my books showed up at the house. Congrats, Dave. Way to go!
