New World Order?


I keep hearing my conservative friends talk about the conspiracy that some new world order is being brought about and has secretly been in work for decades by the liberal 1%.

After listening to this, I can’t help but think – there’s your new world order taking shape … and it’s frightening 😳😬

Just something I was thinking about …

Launch America – SpaceX & NASA Working Together


Hope you’re watching this historic event!! After nine long years, we are launching US astronauts on a US vehicle from US soil, right there from Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The weather is looking sketchy, so I hope they don’t have to scrub. But if they do, they’ll try again on Saturday!

53 – 47, 53 – 47, 53 – 47 🙈


So I guess we will have a sham of a trial with NO EVIDENCE & NO WITNESSES (as it currently stands) . . . 3 votes on amendments so far. (Yes talking about the impeachment.)

I can only hope if for some reason I am ever on trial, these “justice seekers who swore an oath to this country, its people, and God, to be impartial” (& who will do as their leader bids) control my trial . . . Oh but wait that would never happen, as I am not a dictating monarch. I am the everyday American – you know just your average person . . . probably JUST LIKE YOU. I am not rich, nor do I have people in my back-pocket & kissing my ass. Nor would I want or choose to be like that. I was raised better & I have a conscience!

If you are so sure your leader is innocent, then look at all the evidence – but no, the Republican Party would rather turn a blind eye for partisanship – shameful & disgraceful 🤥

Just something I was thinking about, as I watch this shitshow . . .

(Yes, Sadie has been watching & paying attention 🤨😡🤢)

RIP Leon


 

I saw Leon Russell twice – once in 1976 or 1977, The Leon & Mary Russell Wedding Tour and then again in June of 2013. He was one of my all time favorite singer songwriters. He really was a brilliant composer and pianist. I’m so grateful that even though he is gone, I will always be able to enjoy his music, and the memories it evokes ❤

RIP Mr. Russell  . . . we have all been blessed by your gifts -)

Just something I was thinking about . . .

I’ve got a sad heart . . .


I am truly saddened at what is going on in my country, and the world these days. I mean to the point that it is affecting my mood immensely. Add to that the fact that we are still not working real jobs (meaning we are still essentially living off of our 401Ks), and that just exacerbates the gloomy, sometimes despondent, mood I find myself in lately.

My heart hurts for Brussels right now. I’ve read that ISIS has taken credit for this horrendous act of terrorism, and reports say an ISIS supporter boasted via social media that, “what will be coming is worse.”

On the home front, in the good ole USA – I have been watching the debates, and many of the town halls, and other appearances by the presidential candidates. It’s no wonder, I have this sick hopeless feeling in my gut I’m having a hard time shaking off . . .

If we don’t find a way for at least most of us to get along in some form or fashion, and have the capacity to have thoughtful, considerate, compassionate,  unifying conversations that may involve some compromise by all – we’re all screwed.

But this is what we have and our young people are watching this . . . and learning – good or bad . . .

 

 

What a horrible example Trump sets – and I realize as a journalist how sound bites can be manipulated, but his comments are just wrong in any context, as well as the fact that I actually watched him say most of the things in their entirety.

And this was one of my favorite, “Are you fucking kidding me?!?” moments. When asked who he consults on foreign policy issues, Trump stated – I shit you not! –

“I’m speaking with myself, number one. Because I have a very good brain and I’ve said a lot of things.” 

AND that, my friend, is the front runner of the Republican Party. I’d call that the major ingredient in the beginning of WWIII and annihilation of life as we know it. Just saying . . .

I hope, in spite of all these nightmarish things going on around us, that this finds you all doing well in your part of the world.

On a final note, I’ve been busying myself making marmalades, lately. This was my first year to make them, and they’ve turned out quite tasty. I made ruby red grapefruit, orange and what I call Texas Sunshine, which is oranges, grapefruit, lemons, tangerines, pineapple, and cherries. Much of the citrus fruit came from the trees of family and friends, so that was really cool!  It’s also beautiful to look at 🙂 Like a little jar of sunshine!

Flight – Five Sentence Fiction


Five Sentence Fiction – though you don’t typically find fiction on this blog, thought some of you might be interested in this type of prompt, so thought I’d share. It’s pretty cool, challenging, creative 😉 I enjoyed doing it!

I love Five Sentence Fiction!! This is probably one of my favorite writing prompts 🙂

Five Sentence Fiction – Flight

She was nervous and excited, scared and exhilarated, and felt twenty years younger. She couldn’t believe she was doing this. She hated to fly and hadn’t in decades and now she had jumped from a perfectly good airplane. Rushing into the wind, she had pulled the ripcord. Now she was flying and floating through the air like a bird, with a view that couldn’t be described.

(OOOhh  . . . maybe I’ll use this in my NaNoWriMo! 😉 )

Hurricane Horror – Flash Fiction Friday


My fiction effort – kinda tied in with all my Ebola posts 😉

Just something I was thinking about . . .

Happy Halloween 🙂

Windchimes and Dreamcatchers

Written in response to this week’s prompt from terribleminds:  The country’s in EBOLA PANIC, going so far as to elect an Ebola Czar. (Did you know that vending machines kill 13 people a year? I look forward to our new Vending Machine Czar to address this grave concern.) Disease of course freaks people out. And next Friday? Halloween. The time of horror! Which means it’s time for you to freak people out with disease. Write 1000 words of flash fiction. It should be horror. It should feature disease as an axis of that horror.

Grace understood why her mother was nervous about her work, especially these days with Ebola jumping its African borders and showing up in various parts of the world, including America. When Grace got the job at the Galveston National Institutes of Health Bio Lab, she knew her family might consider it dangerous, but she thrived on the danger and…

Feeling Spanked


There are times in life when things are going well, then all of a sudden out of the blue, when you least expect it – feels like a mushroom cloud over your head while you are choking on the fallout. Definitely been feeling a bit slapped around lately 😉

Then I remind myself . . . I am stronger than any shit that gets thrown at me!! (Just thought I would share that, in the event anyone else out there is feeling the same!!)

Party on Wayne . . . Party on Garth . . .

Just something {random} I was thinking about . . .
