Remember when?





I'm dreaming about days gone by...

Remember when there was no such thing as cell phones only beepers?
Remember when you rented movies on VHS?
Remember when there was nothing called a laptop or ipad?
Remember mini skirts and Beatle boots and record players and 45's?
Remember transistor radios?
Remember when public schools had art and music programs and taught writing in cursive?
Remember when prisons where not for profit?
Remember newspapers?


Remember when, we had a president who spoke eloquently?
Remember when we had a president who wasn't mired in scandals?
Remember when every waking hour wasn't about juvenile things the president said and did?
Remember when the president didn't insult our allies?
Remember when the president didn't defend pedophiles, Nazis and abusers?
Remember when the president wasn't in it for the money?
Remember when the presidents cabinet was filled with competent people who knew their jobs?

Remember that, that was just a year ago?

Those were the days my friend......


Have a fab weekend!

Lift off...




                                      (Noodle looking for Space X)


Noodle graciously has given up her Wordless Wednesday, so that I might say a few words...

I grew up in the 60's.

I was alive when we first shot a rocket to the moon.

I remember the pride and thrill of watching Neil Armstrong taking that first step and the words,
"that's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind"

With the amazing success of the SPACE X   launch yesterday,
February 6th. 2018 will go down in history.

I don't believe in coincidences.

I think everything happens for a reason no matter how insignificant it may seem at the time.

I don't think it was a coincidence that they launched a rocket into the heavens on the anniversary of my mothers passing.

At least I'd love to think in my heart that it was no coincidence.

I imagine instead that the rocket was predestined to soar into space on that exact date to celebrate my mothers life.

To acknowledge her essence.


Or perhaps it really was just a wonderful coincidence...

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Trying to catch up...






We must have had seven different posts we were working on over the past few days.

Each one taking the place of the last one written in an attempt to keep up with everything that's going on.

We've been playing this catch up game for over a year now and I must say....it's exhausting!

This week it's all about The Memo.

Last week it was porn stars and affairs.

The week before that it was all about the presidents remarks about Haiti and Africa.

And the week before it was the government shut down and not that the government was shut down but more importantly who's fault it was.

There was the release of the book; Fire and Fury.

( I'm not even going to mention the Russia stuff, that would take way too much time)

Not that these things are unimportant or are not note worthy but the human mind can only retain so much!

There is impending war with North Korea or maybe even Iran.

There's DACA.

And still much of Puerto Rico sits without power and clean water.

The opioid epidemic continues to grow.

Our infrastructure keeps failing.

Homeless numbers climb.

Veterans are still committing suicide.

Bottom line is; there is no catching up.

We are in a continuous spin cycle that has no off button.

We are doomed to keep chasing our tails until we have an epiphany and realize that it's all just to some degree, noise.

Congress has thrown their respect and morals out the window and replaced  them with greed and power.

So, will Trump fire Rosenstein or Mueller or both?

Will the stock market fall below the 635 points it fell today?

Nothing is going to save us.

WE are the off button.

Only we can say ENOUGH and change the channel.

Maybe then we can all get to work and actually DO something...

Everybody happy?

Is this America being great again?





Have a wonderful weekend...
