Well,I just chatted with the daughter. I got an earful of inside the beltway thinking. *sigh* What is all the hair on fire about ISIS is going to come here and kill us? Porch,I told the daughter that Pelosi probably had a meltdown due to the stress of knowing about Cummings. That is when the daughter gave me an earful about who exactly had the meltdown.
Geez Jane! "The old fashion way." I spit out my coffee. :) James,I agree with your comment. These people think they are indispensable,even when they become ill or so elderly they have to be wheeled in to vote.
Good Morning! Well,my mother almost blew up her in-law apartment yesterday. She left the gas stove on. Thank God my sister stopped by to visit and asked what is that smell?! My sister-in-law was home also (the apartment is attached to my brother's house). S-I-L opened the door and windows and cleared the smell. My brother had the propane tank removed,I think he was already concerned about Mom using the stove. In the meantime,my mother-in-law is recovering from nasty cuts on her legs sustained after falling off a freaking step ladder. I hope when I'm almost 90 years old I have better sense. Very frustrating!

As you know,the daughter went to China over the summer. She was fully aware of the survelliance state,cameras everywhere. She told us about a colleague who had to use facial recognition to dispense toliet paper in a rest room at a train station. When she told us,we laughed,but on second thought it is a very sobering thought that the state controls *every* aspect of life.

Huh. Neil Cavuto and John Roberts seem a bit surprised about Shep's announcement.

Steph,the Atlanta Braves have a new,beautiful spring training facility almost *literally* across U.S.41 from us. Tomahawks are very prominent on the huge panels on the facade of the stadium. Ha,I guess those will be replaced? It is an impressive facility.

Wow,did you hear the end of Trump's presser? Very poignant about visiting Walter Reed.

Maine also *celebrates* Indigenous Peoples Day. Poor old Columbus. Do school children still learn the "1492" song? The local high school here in Florida still uses Indians as a name and mascot for sports. My high school in New Hampshire still uses Red Raiders as a name and mascot for sports. Very unwoke. :)

Good Morning. Thinking of you Iggy. Jane,I'm also worried about the media. The MSM is unhinged. I tried watching Hannity last night,what was his argument with Andy McCarthy? McCarthy said that Trump shouldn't have brought up Hunter Biden's role in Ukraine? Hannity started arguing,McCarthy kept shaking his head.

Good afternoon! Just stopping in to say hello. We're still settling in and waiting for hubby's Jeep to arrive on the truck carrier. It broke down leaving Maine and has been delayed. So,I've been lurking,thanks for all the info everyone. Now that we have actual TV, I find that watching the news makes me agitated. A friend from Minnesota stopped by this morning and ranted about the politics in his state (he and his wife are here full time now). He was delighted about the Minneapolis cops wearing special t-shirts for Trump's visit. The dog was in distress yesterday with what sounded like kennel cough. I woke up several times in the night listening to him and he didn't make a peep. I think he's adjusting to the heat. :) All better today.

We visited The Villages many years ago. Hubby had elderly clients from northern Maine who lived there. It is quite the place. Our community isn't 55+,there are many families here. The kids take the school bus from the front entrance in the morning.

Good afternoon! Our HOA allows the American flag and a service flag for military members who served. We flew a Betsy Ross flag all summer up in the woods. :) We did notice many Trump billboards,flags and banners after we crossed the Mason-Dixon line.

Ha,I should have put another "home" in my 7:29 to cover all three of Bernie's houses.

Yes sbw, a SC confirmation would make the situation in Washington *really* interesting. :)

Good Morning! the Supreme Court opens today. Will RBG attend? We need a medical scorecard for all these people. Poor old Bernie. :) He can go home home to Vermont and enjoy the foliage.

Biden and his son are stone cold crooked.

Jack,it has been over 20 years since the daughter looked at colleges and everything has changed. We did the New England college tour and she just knew that the college she decided on (Saint Anselm) was *the* one. This was before St. A's had established the NHIOP. (Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be lobbyists,ha) She applied the fall of her senior year and was accepted before Christmas. My only advice would be to trust Frederick's instincts.
Good afternoon! Happy Birthday Mom! Today is also hubby's birthday. He received a call about an hour ago from his mother's independent living facility. She had a bad fall and gashed both legs. His mother has been there one month! He has two sisters in the area,so they are both going to the hospital. Do you know what his 89 year old mother was doing? Standing on a step ladder hanging curtains! She was waiting for curtains to be delivered when we visited last week. The maintenance man was supposed to hang the curtains,but no. She had to do it herself! Hubby said,those !@#$%^&*! curtains!
Good afternoon! Buckeye,hope Poogan feels better. Our dog Scout met a new puppy in our neighborhood. His name is Teddy and he's so cute. Scout tries to ignore him,but the puppy wants to play. The trip between Maine and Florida usually has at least one funny story. At a rest area somewhere on the road,we pulled into a parking spot next to a young couple having an argument. By the time I returned to the car,hubby said,you missed the best part! She was crying,he was being a jerk. She tossed his guitar out of the car,he ran up the hill to the picnic area. She took off in the car! Somewhere in either Pennsylvania or maybe Virginia a guy is at a rest area without his guitar. :)
