The Hobby Lobby Decision
Posted on June 30th, 2014 @ 6:00 pm

I was going to post an entry on the Hobby Lobby Decision, but seeing the pure ugliness coming from some people, even my friends, on it, I think I will pass.  Let’s just say I am sadden and crying over the reaction of the decision.

All I can say is bless their hearts and God bless them Lord, for they can not see the whole picture.

Weird Dream #19672
Posted on June 30th, 2014 @ 8:20 am

Ok, for some really crazy reason, I had an odd dream last night.  I dreamt of a werewolf chasing me into an abandoned house. I looked myself in the shower, hoping to get away until the werewolf lost interest.  Nope, he went on attacking me.  So I thought at first.  He was drilling a hole into the glass and placing a long, thing brush into the hole for me to poke at him.  Seems I knew the werewolf in his human form and he trusted me.  He wanted me into the shower for protection and wanted me to taunt him into being a human again.

The things I dream of.

I will have more later.  I went to D.C. last week.  I am still working on the photos from that adventure.  Once done, I will share.

“Sometimes it’s your own shadow standing in your path”
Posted on June 19th, 2014 @ 10:26 pm

There I times I wonder if I am brave or just ebbing and flowing at life.  At this moment, I feel like I am just riding down the river on a raft with no paddles.

I have to often stop and realize what all I have done.

A few weeks ago, I saw a woman down the street from me.  Her kids really wanted to use my neighborhood pool.  I invited them as my guests to use the pool.  We started talking.  I told her a bunch about myself.  She seemed impressed that at all I have:  Flexible job, my own car, my own house, and working on a Master’s degree.

Yet, there is a part of me that feels like something is missing in my life.  I know I don’t need a husband or kids to make my life complete.  And yet, part of me feels that I must.

Where does this feeling come from?

Maybe I’ll meet the man of my dreams on my travels coming up soon.  And knowing my luck, I’ll probably meet his beautiful wife.

I was sad to see that headline today.  I knew who he was, even before I got into baseball.  He came across as a nice, positive guy.  He worked hard and was smart.  He was just likable on TV.

The world is going to miss him dearly.

I am a southerner. Born here and lived here most of my life. I consider Georgia home, since I’ve lived in this state the longest.

It wasn’t until I moved to Atlanta did I realize how much I cared for South Carolina. In Augusta & Savannah, it was always across the river. At Bragg, it was only an hour away. However, in Atlanta, it was at least 2 hours away. I only ever got to South Carolina when I came to visit Savannah.

As of late, I have been taking day trips into South Carolina and exploring it like I have done with Georgia. Last weekend, I went to Hunting Island State Park with my friend, Gen. She had never been; it had been about 30 years since I had. We went and toured the lighthouse. It was a beautiful day and the trees at the beach made for a wonderful photography experience.

However, today, just surfing around information, I found this humorous video about the town of North, SC.  I thought I would just share it.

Add me to another one of the angry people about this Bowe Bergdahl trade. I remember reading a Rolling Stone article on him. (on another note, how did hell did I get subscribed to Rolling Stone?)  I thought he was a fruit loop then.  I still believe it now.  However, for the sake of arguments, let’s just say he did innocently walk away and was captured by the Taliban.  In that scenario, I should be happy that we recovered him.

My gripe is how we did it and who we gave up to get them.

I remember reading about the Taliban before 9/11.  I thought they were small minded pea brains then.  They still are.  Well, not totally is they can get our brain dead administration to give them back 5 of the worst members ever.  And we are to believe that Qatar will keep tabs on them?  At this point, if they are truly reformed, then I own some swamp land in Atacama Desert.

Most likely, once probation in Qatar is over, they will go home and and be the little pea brains that they are.  And here’s the scary thing.  Remember how they treated women? Women were treated horribly.  Goats got better treatment than women by the Taliban.  The Taliban is going to do everything the can to take back Afghanistan.  And when they do, the women are going to go back to the hell they were in or be targeted like that little Malala was because they dare to better their lives.

When I was a young kid, I remember hearing all about the hostages in the Middle East, like Terry Anderson.  They were held in hopes to  gain concessions from the U.S.   This Taliban trade just gave terrorists carte blanche to do it again.  Want what you want?  Just grab an American.

So, while this is good for Bergdahl, is it really good for the rest of the nation?  With the women’s movement in Afghanistan, I wonder what Women’s Rights advocates like Mavis Leno feel about this trade.

I know I am angry about it.
