Thursday and Vacuuming Again

I slept really well last night and woke up after 5:00...closer to 5:30.  I dressed and got ready for my day.  I will vacuum the entire apartment today. I didn't do the two rooms I'd intended yesterday after getting "sick" again. I never did figure out what that episode was all about. But it was gone as fast as it came on so I am fine this morning.

Bob called this morning to check me out. We decided to eat lunch at El Pueblito at noon so I wouldn't have to cook again. This has been a week!

I have been reading again. I am working on the novel that Gay left me about the orphan trains. I read awhile this morning and then put on the music on the TV and am working on today's blog before I do the vacuuming.

I moved the flower container that doesn't have a hole in the bottom onto the carport before that storm last night. It is awfully full of water and I am afraid it will kill the plants with "root rot". I emptied out as much of the water as I possibly could. I need to get some more Miracle Grow and add some to the pot to help dry it out.

Tuesday evening I sent another "letter to the editor"  to the area newspapers. I was so disgusted with the Trump decision to fire the head of the FBI on a pretext of his actions last summer and fall.  Most thinking people know the read reason for the firing was the investigation of Trump and his staff and the possible collusion with the Russians...for whatever reasons. I thin he has financial dealings with them that he doesn't want disclosed. He admires the Russian "dictator" so.  That also would explain his reluctance to disclose his tax returns.

Here's the letter:

"Dear Editor,                                                                                                   May 9th, 2017
Another “interesting” development in the Trump administration today. This administration is full of “interesting” developments. Now it is the firing of the FBI Director Comey.  And to hear the reasons given, it has something to do with the investigation of Hillary Clinton and the indictment that was not brought against her. That was last summer in 2016! This is May of 2017.  Who really believes the real reason was not the Congressional and FBI investigations against Trump and those in his administration and their affiliations with the Russians?

Let’s face it…you can’t fire someone who is actively investigating you and have any credibility at all.

And while we’re checking credibility, let’s look at the statement Trump made about President Andrew Jackson.  He said Jackson saw the Civil War coming and felt it was inevitable and was angry about it and would not have let it happened. But how could that be? Jackson died 16 years before the Civil War even started. 

Besides that, history shows that Tennessean Andrew Jackson owned slaves himself and would not have opposed the war. 

Then he recently said he would be willing and honored to meet with Kim Jong Un of North Korea “under the right circumstances”.   And he has invited the Philippines’ President Rodrigo Duterte to meet with him at the White House..a man who has been responsible for the deaths of over 7,000 lives of suspected drug addicts and drug dealers. 

The evidence shows this president is just full of “interesting” developments. Stay tuned…it will get even more interesting."

More later...

I went out to Walmart to do my grocery shopping at last. While I was there, the rains moved in and I was inundated with rain. I made a run for my car carrying my five sacks of groceries. I got wet but didn't comb my hair. I figured it would be better to just let it dry.

Anyhow, I started for home and it began to hail. I pulled into a truck wash and sat it out until the hail let up. Then I encountered flooding streets all over town. It was a maze trying to find any streets that were not flooded. It took me forty minutes to drive a 15 minute drive but I finally got home without drowning the car.

Later it stopped raining for awhile but then it moved in again. By this time I was home so I just stayed home. It's after 6:30 now and all we have on Tulsa TV is weather news...for the Tulsa area...72 miles away.  None of our news was carried or even the CBS news. So I get my national news on the computer where I don't have to deal with eight commercials every fifteen minutes.

I will take my bath shortly and put my PJs on and get ready to go to bed at 9:00 or 9:30.

Maybe more later....

Good for you, Margie! I find myself writing lots of letters and emails to various government representatives these days.

Good idea. But I was told by an aide to Senator Gore many years ago that writing directly to your senator or representative is only answered by their aides using "position books" and their signature is stamped on. Then the aide told me the way to reach them is to write my letters to the editors of my newspapers. They employ a clipping service and those letters are clipped out and laid on the desk of the representative or senator to read. Why? because you are reaching their constituents. That matters! That's the way to reach them.
