And it’s a Monday, too


Oooh, those dogs


One excuse: Hillary beat him in popular vote. That’s totally irrelevant according to our Constitution. Also, Hillary beat Obama in the popular vote during the 2008 primary plus he needed the DNC Rules and Bylaws Cmte, headed by James Roosevelt, to change rules to favor Obama. He also got his delegate vote through caucus primary states, which are notoriously unreliable.. Like a good girl, Hillary ignored that and sacrificed herself to help Obama win.

For several months, I’ve been using flowers less and branches/dried pods/seeds more. Partly the seasons, of course, but I’ve gotten so I like a simple, natural display. Maybe I’m regressing. When I was first married, my house was clear contemporary style. My houseplants were bonsai and succulents.

Do most young people feel this way, wanting a home environment that’s likely very different from their parents and grandparents? I’m not sure when I changed styles but it’s partly because I like to shake things up quite often; I’m always changing hair color, clothing, etc. It’s party because people give you stuff or you inherit. When my mom died, I incorporated some of her possessions by giving them prime display honor.

Maybe it’s just because I’m getting old, some of my high school classmates and friends my age have already died, and I think you like life simpler at this stage, go for the essentials, go for God-given, natural graces. Oh well, it’s only flowers, right?

Redbud, dried leaves on Fiesta platter, lily stalks, Dogwood seeds right before the leaves darken and curl up to fall on the ground, Nandina, and various late summer foliage in old jars found under my house when we did work years ago. Previous owners just used it as a burial site for waste jars, my husband tossed many others and hauled them off before I rescued these. Mostly mustard, Listerine and mayo jars. The leaves on the platter are on an old Western-themed blanket that’s seen better days but I love it as a tablecloth.

Oooh, Those Dogs

Don’t you feel exactly this way sometimes, whether it’s what you’re seeing online or just trying to get the stupid machine to work right?



Yes, we’re gonna get what we deserve. We let the lying, biased MSM bully and distort us into voting -assuming there wasn’t voter fraud with illegal immigrants voting – for someone we didn’t even know but whose far-left ideology most closely matches the far-left ideology of journalists.

The most amazing part of this election year is that the Democrats and the MSM really don’t get it. As arrogant, as ignorant, as thin-skinned, as destructive, as mouthy as Trump is: that’s how many Americans, including myself, have seen Barack Obama for 8 years. Only I think Obama is much worse. He is more mean-spirited and he believes that the biggest obstacle to world peace and equality is America. Obama is a pacifist who wants  America to come down a few notches.Obama is also an accomplished liar. For all his verbal clumsiness, I don’t think Trump is much of a liar.For 7 1/2 years, Obama’s lied to us about the economy, ObamaCare, BLM and Voter ID, the IRS, immigration, the VA and the military, AGW, Benghazi, Iraq, Iran, ISIS, et al. You have to wonder how much is lies, how much is incompetence.

Worst of all is the demonizing toward any and all opposition. I’ve heard nothing but hate speech from him toward me and mine for nearly 8 years.  I’ve never heard a president go overseas and denounce America. I’ve never heard a president go overseas and repeatedly denounce a political opponent. I’ve never heard a president call an opponent “unfit”; believe me President Obama, that’s how I’ve viewed you for 8 years. You’re a disgrace to the office.


As usual, the MSM rush in to help the Democrat and hurt the GOP before we fully know the facts.  BTW, the only mention of a “religion test” in the Constitution concerns those running for office. We can make our immigration laws to keep out groups from areas that threaten the security of our nation.[ FDR most certainly turned away a ship of Jews trying to escape pre-war Germany. He did so out of fear admitting them would antagonize the isolationist, anti-Semitic America First group. BTW, the book and movie Ship of the Damned chronicles the horrible endings virtually all of those Jews met.]  Go wave that little book at someone else, Mr Khan. https://pjmedia.com/blog/khan-flict-freedom-fighter-son-sharia-supremacist-father/h

This is Obama at his worst: Mean, condescending, dishonest, and distinctly unpresidential

Obama jumps on the pig pile

Slap your forehead, America. You coulda had a Mitt Romney.
