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

Showering off our Nuclear Secrets

 We did get some rain yesterday.  A nice soaking shower for about a half hour early in the evening.  Any day I don't have to stand out front watering my plants is a good day.  I don't water the lawn, however, so that's nice and brown.  There is little difference between the way it looks now and the way it normally looks in late July and August.  

I ordered a small weight bench because... well, I gave the one I had away because I didn't think I'd ever use it again.  Well, that proves how much I know.  I'm also planning on cancelling my membership at Planet Fitness.  I've been paying them $10 a month for almost 5 years (all through the Pandemic even though I didn't go).  As usual, every spring and summer it gets inundated with teenagers and young adults mostly as a place to hang out with their friends.  Usually, my attendance just drops, but this year I've decided to cancel.  I can restart in the fall when they go back to school and college. 

The recordings are flowing in thick and heavy for the audiobook.  I emailed David telling him that most of the changes I had were editing, shortening the pauses between words.  He's changed the phrasing in certain areas which works.  It didn't take me long to realize that reading a book aloud is a lot different than simply reading it.

And yesterday I, as well as the rest of the world, got to see this.

Now, I don't know about your but me?  I saw a crystal chandelier in a bathroom, and a crystal sconce, and lots of brown marble, but what my eye was really drawn to was that crappy shower curtain!  Holy Shit!  All that crystal and marble, and a shower curtain that looks like it was picked up in Walmart.  Oh, and of course there are the boxes of documents, some of which are evidently nuclear secrets.  I'm sure there's nothing more fun than sudsing up your loofah, while reading about Iran's nuclear capabilities.

I did read through the indictment because... oh, shall we say I was interested.  I found the bit about them finding boxes open with documents spilled out onto the floor rather telling.  I personally thought that indicates that some unauthorized person might have been hurriedly perusing and photographing them... but then that's just me.  I write mysteries, so I tend to be suspicious.


  1. I thought the same as you about the shower curtain. Millions... and he couldn't get a better interior decorator??? And I find it odd, that they would be just out like that and not say in one room in a basement or some such storage room. Why is such public rooms like in the ballroom for example? One picture I saw even had papers lying about on the floor And again...when he left the White House and all that security was there, you're telling me, not one person wondering why all those boxes upon boxes were leaving???? I find that very odd. When most families "move in" or out, it's mostly personal belongings and suitcases.

    1. I'm sure most of the moving was done by his loyal staff, as for the boxes, they may have been moved long before his last day in the White House.

  2. I think you need to give him the benefit of the doubt. Maybe he's having his bathrooms redecorated, just like me!

    1. You might be right, or possibly that's what Melania thinks is stylish.
