How much longer will the madness go on???

To the dump, to Congress, to the House ~
Grow a pair and tell the NRA to go take a flying leap at a rolling doughnut!!

Enough is way too much ~ How many more have to die before you get your thumbs out??

A day late; a dollar short...

I've just finished reading "Songs of America" by Jon Meacham (a Pulitzer Prize winning author) and Tim McGraw (yes, THAT Tim McG!) ~
a fascinating look at the songs that have fueled America since the Revolutionary War through 2008.
I especially love the tunes we Americans "stole" from the British, and added our own words to { My Country Tis of Thee" being the major one!}
No offense, Mollie!

Here is the Amazon link to the book ~

One of the links I was gifted with was this one...
I've not heard of but one or two of these groups, but I've had fun listening to their Anti-Trump songs...

Click here...

And stay tuned ~ more tomorrow!

Ladies and Gents ~

I admit to a VERY limited knowledge of modern day music... so could anyone please tell me if there are any current protest songs about the dump???
I'm thinking songs like we used to have ~ along the lines of Peter, Paul & Mary; Crosby, Stills & Nash; Marvin Gaye, etc.
Any & all info along these lines/links would be very much appreciated!!
Thanks in advance ~

You simply can NOT compare Melania dump to Jackie Kennedy.

Jackie wasn't a two-bit whore before she became first lady ~

And Jackie actually finished college, instead of dropping out.

Nope ~ no comparison!

75th D-Day anniversary

My sweet hubby {military brat and officer} and I {military brat and wife} give thought every year on 6/6 to all the soldiers who braved & persevered & gave their lives that day ~ we will never be able to do enough to repay them for what they did. They represent the BEST of America ~ and their work can never be diminished.

But hubby and I have another reason to gently celebrate the day ~ tomorrow will be the 40th anniversary of the day we first met. In comparison, it will never match the tough glory of the original D-Day, but to us, it has it's own significance.

Our marriage, like so many others, has had it's ups and downs ~ but here we are, 40 years later, still together...

To the men of 75 years ago ~ we will always remember ~

To Jimbo ~ No, your radio isn't too loud, and yes, I would like some orange juice.

Good news ~ Tomorrow will mark the beginning of Spring (the Vernal Equinox) at 3:58 PM MST!

Good news ~ Today was the first day I got to dig my fingers in some planting soil; I repotted my Bleeding Heart from an old cracked pot to a new one.


Bad news ~ like just about everyone I've talked to in this area, my allergies began to bug me on or about 16 March. :-(

Bad news ~ since working with the potting soil this afternoon, my allergies have REALLY flared. I've been a snot-nosed mess ever since!!


Spring, thou art a double edged sword! But I welcome you anyway!
