As expected, yesterday was soooo sloooow at work. Not a lot of people are out looking for flooring. But, just in case some of you are thinking, "ah, that's the economy," I have to remind you that July and August are always slow months for us. Vacation time. Customers ask themselves, "why spend $4000 on carpet or vinyl planking, when you can take the family to Disneyworld for a week and have much more fun?" Believe me, fun always wins out.
I'm only being scheduled for 3 days a week for the next couple of weeks. That's fine with me. This partial retirement thing is rather nice.
Since it's Friday, I'm off. I have certain chores that get done on Friday. They are part of my routine. No laundry, though. Wednesday is my laundry day. Most of today's chores involve cleaning. Oh, and going to the supermarket.
The flowers in one of the little, front gardens are coming along nicely. Interestingly enough, the marigolds I planted from scratch are burgeoning, the ones which were already 5 inches tall when I bought them are struggling.

So, here we are, halfway through July, one hundred and some odd days before the midterms, and a certain political party is starting to scratch their head, seeming caught off guard by what's happening in America. The common belief was that the party that loses the presidency wins heavily in the mid-terms. The truth is that was never a sure thing. As a result, the Republicans thought they were going to drive their conservative tank back and forth across the country, crushing every centrist in sight. They were going to win which meant they could do whatever they wanted. And so, the Supreme Court that they packed overturned Roe. With one fell swoop they told the largest voting bloc in the country that not only were they 2nd class citizens, in truth, they were really nothing more than breeders.
