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

Saturday, June 8, 2024


 Well, it's a beautiful Saturday morning and, as usual, I'm going to go to work this afternoon.  I'm not expecting it to be busy.  Memorial Day is done.  Because temps are going to be staying in the low 80s (F), those who want to, will be doing outdoorsy things.  Those who don't will most likely be watching baseball.  

I am hoping that the customer who was measured for 21 blinds has stopped in at the store to get them designed.  There are all sorts of complicated things with that measure.  They want a blind, or shade, for an arched window, several sliding doors, and at least 2 faux shelves for two of the windows.  These are things I rarely design at this point in my career, don't want to become overly familiar with.  The associate we have who's an expert with blinds and shades is on vacation until Thursday.  I'm hoping they decide to wait for him.  They were measured in April, so I'm hoping that another week or two wont be too much of a problem for them.

Rather than ride the bike today, I'm going to go for a row, just to change things up.

I've also been sending out the teaser for The Body on the Lawn to selective people, and the response has been very good.

And I snapped a pic of one of my red roses yesterday.  There are 2 buds next to it waiting to bloom.  I love this color.

And I don't know if I've mentioned it, but I find it truly delightful to know that Steve Bannon is finally going to jail.  There are complaints about how long he has until he has to report to the "Big House."  I'm wondering if he'll even show up.  His nature is to be combative and noncompliant. He's a loud mouth who seems to believe his fat gives him authority.  It doesn't.  If he does show up, he'll be in jail up to the election, though I'm of the opinion he would rather become a fugitive from the law.  Martyrdom has too little honor for Stevie.


  1. I saw a meme that worried that Bannon might not get to jail before his body decomposes!!!

    Love the rose; gorgeous red.

    1. I don't know if he's decomposing, or just decided to turn it into low rent housing for lice.

      Thanks. I find that color stunning.

  2. Bannon the boil will probably go on the run and end up living on the yacht of one
    his Chinese or Russian oligarch chumps.

    1. His fanbase will stick with him if he runs, and possibly even send him money.

  3. I haven't been following what's going on in the States (it's voting day today here in France - damn I wish I could vote), so I hadn't heard about Bannon. Wow!

    1. I don't think you have nearly the amount of chaos over there that we do, and if you do, it hasn't been make the news over here.
