When Dar's grand daughter introduced me to her two other friends, I felt like she was going and watching me, for the shock value. She's only 18, she doesn't realize I have heard/seen/met weirder people in this long life and my face or body language does not show shock. Because, I'm not shocked by much anymore. I just stepped forward, with out stretched hand and said, "Sierra, Dakota, I'm so glad you all got to come to Michigan and visit us." The two other girls went into one of the bedrooms and Dar's grand daughter sat down with me and we chatted about what she wants to major in when she gets to college, and where she works now, etc. Just like I would with one of MY grand daughter's friends.
Speaking of shocking things--or weird as I think of them. I know of a woman, a dear woman, who has tattoo's over every inch of skin, except her face. The first time I met her was in the winter, she had jeans and long sleeves on and I didn't notice any markings. The next time I met her was in the summer. There she was in tank tops and short-shorts. I didn't make any comment, just hugged her as usual. That was 15 years ago. Now she is in her 70's, lives in Florida, so she is in tank tops and shorts most of the time. Photos I see of her shows, still a pretty face, but the sagging, crepey skin on arms and legs, makes her look like a retired circus performer. When the once sweet heart you had tattooed over your right breast looked okay at 16, it now does appear weird to be resting on your stomach, doncha think?
My biases and my gossipy nature are on full view today!
Six months into this presidency and my Liberal friends are still posting nastiness on Face Book. What possible good does that do? It just keeps everyone riled up. It's as bad as it was BEFORE the election. Mellow out!
Each of us knows our friends political leanings, now that people make it so well known, which we never did in the good old days. None of what you post is going to change a Conservative's mind, just as none of what they post will change yours. None of what is posted is going to change what is going on in this country. Most of us watch the news, we are intelligent enough to see it and figure it out without a constant daily reminder on FB.
It just gets so tiring to see the nasty links--from both sides, day after day, ad nauseum! I just wish people would give it a rest and just bide our time until 2020, when we can all pick and choose again, and probably elect someone even worse. and please, don't tell me that it is impossible to choose someone worse than this President. I have seen and lived through worse.
Heavy rain all day today, followed by brief moments of sun that bring on the humidity. Severe storms predicted for later this evening and middle of the night, coming out of Iowa. So far the bad storms have gone south and north of me and radar looks like the bad ones coming in tonight will be south. Of course, all that may change, but......there's nothing I can do about it, so I'll go to bed at midnight and sleep through it...unless of course, my trailer blows away. HAH!
