Today is one of my days of rest - it just happens to be Sunday. In retail, sometimes odd things happen. Unfortunately, I didn't get the pedals on my bike changed. This means no riding the roads today, rather free weights instead. That's okay. I'm also off Tuesday and Wednesday, I can go for a ride then since the weather is supposed to be nice.
My brother sent me a text inviting me to some sort of reunion today - my father's side of the family. Notice was short, so I told him I already had plans... plans not to go. Don't get me wrong, I like my cousins, but we are not close. While my Dad (and Mom) moved to Lebanon, his brother and sister moved to Harrisburg. They bought houses diagonally from each other, on the same street. My cousins went to the same school, had the same neighborhood friends, and grew up together. I lived in Lebanon and saw them usually once or twice a year. When I moved to Harrisburg we made halfhearted attempts to get to know each other. They turned out to be rather futile. This is how life is sometimes.
Oh, and the Idiot Jerk is going to the UK next month. Remember when the plans were for him to get chauffeured around in a golden carriage, to meet the Queen? Well, things have changed. Now security is going to try their damnedest to keep him from seeing the massive protests planned. The GOP is probably terrified he'll Tweet about how his meeting with Kim Jung Dumb was so much nicer. It's the rapport thing, you know? That affinity he feels towards dictators. Oh, wait, he doesn't call them dictators. The Idiot Jerk calls them Strong Leaders who were forced to do some 'bad things.' Theresa May, in his book no doubt, is not a Strong Leader. She struggles with the Brexit thing, trying to keep some sort of working relationship with the EU even as she tries to snub them. As it is, he's only going to be in town for 'working day,' and then possibly a round of golf at his club in Scotland, (someone needs to play there).
Oh, and in case you didn't hear, Sarah Sanders Something or Other, was asked to leave a Virginia restaurant. Conservatives are flipping out on social media. They just got bitch slapped. And they don't like it. Of course, they opened this can of worms. For some, political beliefs are just as strong as religion. Discrimination is an equal opportunity street everybody walks down. Not baking a cake for a gay couple because of religious beliefs is exactly the same as not serving Sarah Sanders Something or Other because because of deeply held political beliefs. What that restaurant in Virginia did was say loud and clear, "no one is immune." Whether they want to understand this or not is up to them, however this is exactly what the Supreme Court just told America.
