Politicking and Porch Sitting

Posted on Updated on


1Well, old Woden’s Day rolls around again, and he is dark and gloomy. It is 69° and a 100% chance of rain. Were I a pagan, I would be looking around for a more benign god.  But god causes the rain to fall on the just as well as the unjust, and by August we will most likely be begging for rain.  We’ve had a few unfortunate deaths by people trying to drive through swollen creeks. You would think after decades of this that the natural selection process would have weeded the stupid gene out.


I am suffering from news withdrawal and other than an obsession with the Presidential tweets, I get almost no national news delivered unless it is a huge tragedy, such as the recent Highlands Ranch shootings.  I don’t know what it is about that sanitary suburban paradise that provokes youngsters to such levels.  I am sure the social scientists are busy trying to figure that one out too.  I do have opinion, of course, but I’ll just leave it unspoken.


Rabid Democrats are having what is hopefully their last hurrah.  I am weary of their pettiness, and it seems that a growing number of older Democrats are too.  It is time to cut the head off of this snake and get on with legislating instead of politicking …

They tell me it has everything.  Dark magic, dragons, fierce warriors, sex and violence.  OK … OK … I’ll try it … It will be hard for it because I compare all fantasy to Lord of the Rings, or LOTR as us connoisseurs are wont to say.  ALEXIA, my overlord from amazon.com tells me the DVD’s will arrive today.

Apparently, Linda’s laser zapping of her eye has wrought a miracle in her vision, and she will return Friday to the clinic to get the second one worked on, so I need to be prepared to drive her on that day. That requires preparation the day before on my part.  Little or no dinner the night before, and frequent doses of antacids.  I knew that pain was a part of growing older, but I wasn’t prepared for it to be so damned unsanitary.


I dropped another old blogging site this week.  I have been with it for quite a while, but it was torn apart by dissent and poor management, and it was time to bid it adieu.  I miss it already, but I have been putting most of my stuff here on WordPress, even though it lacks the personal touches the other site had.  I still have a non-public site on yet another free blogging site.  But it is invitation only because I do occasionally write things that are extremely offensive to many, though that is happing very rarely these days.  My biggest sin today in writing is banality.  Coffee posts are now my stock in trade.

But before that occurs, much more misery has to happen.


So goes this chronicle of the days.

Good morning!

    Yay! A future convert… although now I’m feeling the pressure of a GOT fan girl. My advice? Even if you don’t think you like it after the first episode…. stay on course. They threw a lot of gratuitous sex in the first season, possibly to hook an audience. The characters develop slowly and it takes time to fully appreciate the intricate plots.
    I’ll look forward to your review after you’ve finished season 1!

      … I can handle gratuitous sex and violence 😉
      … political moralizing is my major turnoff … and I don’t trust Hollywood glitterati to keep their bias out of their ‘plays’ … one hint of liberal elitism, and I am gone …

        GOT is about a battle for the throne of the 7 kingdoms… but it’s politics has more to do with sex, violence, dysfunctional families and the supernatural than elitism. I think you’ll be fine.

    And was it Blogster you got rid off? For the life of me I can’t figure out how to delete that account.

      You have to message Rica on FB to delete the blogster, there is no delete button …

    I will start by saying that I am so offended that I was not invited to read the extremely offensive secret blog, but what is the point of reading an offensive blog when I so rarely get offended anyway. 😁😉 It’s okay though, I am happy to get to read these coffee blogs you post here and I really don’t deserve to get to read these since I am such a poor excuse for a blogger myself. I just can’t find words these days. I was going to stop posting the one-liners on MW, but still pop something on there once in awhile so people know I am still alive. Not that anyone cares of course hahaha.
    I’m sick of the stupidity of the democrats so I try to avoid reading anything about current crap though it is in my face everytime I get online. I honestly think half the country has lost their minds or are on some kind of strange drug.
    I have never watched one single episode of Game of Thrones and probably never will because most of the time I don’t like these shows that everyone else gets so crazy over. (see another form of crazy, must be in the water!)
    Well that is all I will say because this comment is too long. Have a great week Sir. ❤

      Harrumph! You were one of the few who I gave the password to. You just forgot. 😉
      I kinda ghosted MW. It will need to grow some more before I return. Great idea, but poor execution on the founders part.
      You have a great week too! 🙂

        Hmmm oh I remember that now, but silly me didn’t save the password. Hey I am old, I forget things!!! I thought you just sent me a certain article but not the site. But I can’t be sure now because that would have been bookmarked on my old laptop and not this one. As for MW, that’s ok, no one does anything on there anyway and you know why people won’t join there but I won’t bitch about it anymore LOLOL 😀

        That’s ok, I believe it is my turn to write something extremely offensive. I think I promised that months ago, but my brain has gone dead when it comes to writing, especially those extremely offensive stories 😉
