The house at the end of the road

January 8, 2021

I have probably referenced the post office in some disparaging terms over the last month. Two day packages taking two weeks, or even two Months.

When I was growing up we spent summers at our family cabin. In the woods, down a one-lane private road. We didn’t have indoor plumbing (well there was a kitchen sink, and a hose bib), a telephone, television or an address. It was heaven.

There were other cabins and houses, and it was a long time before addresses were assigned, and the road named. I recall stories of packages being delivered based on a basic description of how to get there and a family name.

Carl was looking at some old mail this morning and noticed this gem. This is from 1993, so not that long ago.

1/2 Block west of Roosevelt

I do understand the Post Office has been impacted by our terrorist in chief, as well as the pandemic. So, as my daughter pointed out a few days ago, I am just happy to know the packages arrived. And all that I have been tracking, have arrived.

It has been raining on and off for several days now. The weekend may provide a reprieve, before the next 3-day deluge. It seems our snow was so 2020, a distant memory. Of course, there is evidence left of the snowman.

Does anyone else use snowman building to rake their lawn?

Lock him up, kick him out, impeach him

Bat shit crazy

Today is President Pierce’s turn in our advance to sanity calendar.

Seriously, he can’t be allowed to just stay without repercussions. Stern verbal tongue lashings are not enough. A mere slap on the wrist that will continue to enable. If not him, one of his equally self-proclaimed self-important followers.

I apologize for the tone, but I am mad and sad to the core.

On the upside, I received these awesome RBG dissent earrings from Ashlan and Allen.

Once my hair gets cut, who knows when, they might show up.

Also known as 3 King’s Day.

Of course mr corrupto tried to make it 1 King Day.

Arrest the President

Seriously. I am spitting nails mad.

A different sort of Advent Calendar

January 2, 2021

The definitions of Advent include:

  • A coming into place or view
  • Most frequently associated with the coming of Christ into the world, celebrated during the four Sundays before Christmas.

The Advent being marked in our house is celebrating the coming of a new president. This is not intended to equate, in any way, the president-elect or any president with Christ, or any religious figure. We strongly support the separation of church and state.

Our 2021 countdown has begun.

The first 20 presidents
Grant steps aside

Back to a hope for sanity. I had written back to reality, but realized that, for me, the last four years have been a reality check. I don’t think my rather idealistic outlook has been so tested since the early 70s when I found out some of my friends parents were racist. And that not everyone understood that wanton littering was bad.

On Day 19 and counting.

Happy New Year
