Rota’s, Rituals and Meanderings

Posted on


101914_1729_Somedays1.jpgDay two of my commitment to write a little each morning.  I don’t have to like it, I just have to do it.

So, armed with a fresh cup of coffee, two sugar cookies, and followed by four dogs coveting my cookies, I return to the keyboard with freshened resolve to just not let the days slide by unnoticed.  I keep treats by the computer because I don’t share cookies.  When I am done, they each get on tiny treat, and they accept it reluctantly. They know it isn’t cookie.  I am such a bastard at times.

A quick run through the newsfeeds …

Democrats are disappointed. The much-vaunted impeachment inquiry into the possibility of an impeachment was deemed a flop by both Democrats and ahem! unbiased left wing ‘sources’.  Jerry Nadler, the chief inquisitor of this trial by fire was left sputtering whether he was going to charge the witness with Contempt of Congress or not.  The witness, Corey Lewandowski, apparently will not participate in an auto-de-fe now, and the left is crushed, and they have let the Democrats on the committee know how displeased they are.

And the President is deciding what he wants to do about gun control, and tweeted that Robert “Beto” O’Rourke’s fiery oath to confiscate all AR-15 and look-alikes if he is elected was not helpful to the determination.  Tweeted off a request that the President do NOTHING about gun control.

Yeah. Sure. He saw that tweet and took it to heart.  Sure.

On a more significant note, I can tell Snooks is putting on her socks and shoes just by hearing the ruckus down the hall.  She and the mutts are going outside for a little morning ball throwing. Now that the weather has cooled a little, they don’t mind staying out a bit longer than usual.

Snooks has turned into the cat lady too.  We now have three yellow feral cats that sit on the porch in the morning waiting for the breakfast lady to bring out a little cat kibble and water.  They peer into my studio through one window, and into the dining room through the other window, trying to see if she is moving their way.  They are out there at sunup, but Snookums is a woman of routine, and they will just have to wait until their turn comes up on the rota. She only gives them half rations because we want them to eat mice and rats as well.  I think before long I am going to have to trap them, get them neutered and notched, and bring them home again.

And so goes the days …

Good morning!

      I think Annie wouldn’t mind having a cat. She brought one home once. But the rest probably wouldn’t get along with them. They are feral cats, so the feeling is mutual …

    I have no clue what is going on with the politicians these days. I haven’t had time to look and my life has been so peaceful , well not exactly peaceful since the kids moved in over the weekend, but I really don’t give a flying flip anymore what the politicians are up to. I now have a big black lab mix living in my house. He came along with the kids and I haven’t seen my cat since he got here :-O

      Sounds like having the family around is doing wonders for you! 🙂

    Three feral cats? You and Snooks are good people to feed them. In no time at all, they will multiply with kittens, and who can turn down kittens?

    As for politics (one of my favorite subjects), Twitter keeps blackballing me because they don’t like my comments. What’s not to like? They are thoughtful comments. Maybe. I can’t talk to my family because they are liberals. We discuss TV shows. I’m living in PC hell.

    Corey Lewandowski was FABULOUS! Jerry Nadler (who reminds me of a toad) wasn’t at all happy. Corey handed Jerry his … (you know the rest).

      I hope to trap them and get them altered, then return them to the wild … we don’t need a houseful of angry cats!
      I did enjoy watching the Democrats huff and puff … I almost expected them to walk off in high dudgeon …

    I belkieve what you typed wass actually very reasonable.
    But, what about this? suppose you added a little content?
    I ain’t saying our content is not good., but suppose you added something that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean Rota’s, Rituals and
    Meanderings « Rusty's Armory is kinda boring.
    You ought too peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create news titkes to get vviewers interested.
    You might add a video or a piic or two to grab people excited about what you’ve got to say.In my opinion, it might
    brinhg your blog a little livelier.
