I was in the bank yesterday and heard some older guy discussing with the teller (Oh man..I hope that isn’t 90’s political correctness) about the condition of the roads and the fact that he thinks he would rather be sliding around on snow and ice than mud. I totally agree. It is this time of year that I cross my fingers for days just above 32 so the roads will at least be passable. Passable meaning..passable….some places you meet another veh, you should actually stop so as not to be pulled into the ditch by the thick muck…although the other day, I did smile when going thru one of those muck places on the road and I caught in my side mirror the amount of mud flinging from my back tires. During those times I have large-pick-up-4-wheel-drive envy as I would love to be covering some jerk tailgating me down the gravel. For those of you who love mud, please forgive my bias!
Bill Clinton went up another level for me today when I learned of his friendship with Richard Nixon. Those were the days when, for the most part, the right and left could find some mutual ground. Before the right aligned itself with the religious zealots who totally forgot what Jesus would have done.
This is the first morning that I’ve given myself permission to laze around in bed for 30 minutes and watch morning TV….just the little bit I saw, I totally think CBS has pulled it out…Good Morning America seemed totally chaotic with all of their beautiful people wanting their time on camera…seems with all of their graphics and foo foo computer stuff, they have lost track of the news. NBC looked like the show went thru a huge weight loss and were looking a little battle scarred and hungry. CBS was bright, newsy, and left the acting on camera to the Young and the Restless.
Happy Valentines Day my sweets.
Until next time….
