Bluntness

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

Visions

Saturday is upon us.  Two more days until my weekend begins.  I am approaching anticipation mode.
Yestrday we had storms come through - nothing more than rain for us, though farther north they had high winds which toppled trees.  Rain is good when it doesn't come in a deluge.  If you sit down and get comfortable in a lotus position, you'll realize that last sentence was profound.
I rode stage 1 of the San Remo route after work yesterday - 14 miles.  And once again my legs proved I was wrong when I said walking all day was a strain on them.  My speed increased by .7 mph and I finished the ride in 45 minutes (+ a few seconds).  This means my legs are getting stronger, and believe me, I'm long past 29 years of age.
The murderer from Minneapolis has been arrested, his wife's divorcing him, and the Idiot Jerk in the White House made a halfhearted attempt to define his racist Tweet.  The arrest failed to stop the protests, the wife is trying to save her own ass, and the Idiot Jerk?  Three and a half years of his Racists, White Republican administration are in no small way responsible for the anger.  Quite often, he has courted the whites of the far right because he thinks angry white people are the key to staying in power.  Boy, is he stupid.  He is totally clueless as to how many people, black, brown, and white, that video horrified and angered.  That's a video of the Idiot Jerk's America, not ours.  That's the ugly vision of a Cracker Jack Christian and White Republican America, it does not belong to the majority of Americans.  The time has come to take back America, to put it on the right path, to, as I read in another blog, crush these losers with the same rock that they crawled out from under.  It's as simple as that.
To try and lighten the mood, here are a couple of pictures of my roses.  I took them yesterday after I'd gotten home from work.




Now, wasn't that a nice and refreshing vision of beauty?

    1. This is the first year the peachy roses really came in, last year it was a young bush and only gave me 2 roses.

  2. We've been having rain nearly every day this week, but it sure make everything clean and green.

    I want the protesters to stop looting and burning and to stand in front of police stations and the White House shouting.
    Peacefully.

    1. I do wish they would demonstrate peacefully, as well. Arrests have been made, it's time to begin proceeding forward.

  4. I guess trump is hoping the shooting will start because every death will be one less vote for the democrats. Sadly my statement is not just me being cynical, he is probably actually thinking that.

    1. He's trying to walk back his little 'looter / shooter' comment so I guess some one must have told him that inciting riots is not a good way to get your ass re-elected.

  6. The flowers are quite lovely!!!

    I was so happy and relived to see the buffoon had to see the rocket fire off today because that was so much more important then addressing other issues.

    1. The launch was supposed to be a 'big' thing for his campaign. Quite a few have noticed he's MIA (except for negative Tweets) in responding to George Floyd.

    1. Thanks. I have no idea what it's called. I ordered it from Amazon 2 years ago. If you want, I can go back to my orders and find out what it's called.
