When I was in my twenties I took a lot of pictures of high school athletes. I did sports banquet slides shows and such.
In the back of my mind I always hoped that some of them would become famous in some way, maybe even notorious.
It occurs to me that they are now well into their fifties.
I’ve got photos, slides, negatives and videos that I’m tired of storing.
They better get cracking.

Stubbed my toe,
let the oatmeal burn,
forgot to check the gate before letting the dog out of the house.
It can only get better from here on.

Here’s my problem with Conservatives that have political and media power.
They are just as out of touch and elitist as any liberal.
They are focused on book deals, website subscriptions and products. If you want to contact them, you have to give them money.
As a result, they miss out on the perspectives of so many of the people they claim to fight for.
None of the questions I have get asked, and I associate with many that would love to hear these questions asked; much less hear what responses they would get.

I wonder why no one has thought of this:

My theory is the whole political platform has shifted and an internal espionage is in full force.
I'm convinced the new breed of politicians are agent provocateurs' that have infiltrated the opposition. Nobody knows who anybody really is.
Defined parties no longer exist.
As for the post above......I called this slight of hand upon announcement of candidacy. There is no other plausible explanation. My theory here is Joe knows he is ill and a willing sacrificial soldier for his party.

We are living in amazing times.
It may come soon where if we want to eat in a certain restaurant, there may be a requirement to swear allegiance to Joe Biden. (And Facebook,Twitter, Google, Apple, Amazon and YouTube.)

I have to defend myself from misguided bling:

They are already blacklisting Trump supporters.
Are you saying when I reopen my wallpaper business, that I have work for hate filled insurrectionists, racists, homophobics, and misogynists? I have to serve police when it’s been established that they are systematically racist?

There is already a call to disrupt Conservatives as they eat in restaurants. Can’t a restaurant owner prevent promoters of violence and revolution from sitting in their establishment? They might use their tables to plan insurgency.
They have to allow mean spirited hayseeds onto their property? Maybe Olive Garden or Holiday Inn. (According to CNN)

How are we going to have justice if there are no consequences for hate?

So I’m watching TV and I misread this news banner:

MASSIVE BLIZZARD SLAMS THE MIDWEST

Man I was excited to see a news story for the first time in a long time.
I thought it might have been you know who.

I have this gorgeous glass (no idea how it's called) jar on my cupboard.
It has been standing there for half a year.
A few weeks back I finally figured out what I wanted to do with it.
I think it would be ideal for a moss terrarium.
I had everything I needed except for the gravel.
Thankfully today I got small gray stones and got to work.
