Thursday and Apartment Cleaning Day

I slept pretty well until 3:00 AM this morning. I finally just got up and checked my bank account to see if my Blue Cross Blue Shield premium had come out of the checking account. It had.  That's always a concern because my rent is due on the first of the month and because my social security doesn't come in until the second Wednesday each month, I always worry about the checking account. There is only a little over $130. in there now. I may have to transfer some money from my savings to pay the rent.

I will clean the apartment this morning. I have already done my laundry. I plan to fix hamburger pie for lunch. Bob will bring a salad.

I hope to read this afternoon. I am still working on "Long Time Passing"..the Pulitzer prize winning book about the Vietnam War. I have been watching the PBS special on the subject by Ken Burns. It is a classic. Too bad our leaders didn't learn anything from that terrible destructive war. Over 58,000 Americans were killed and well over 2,000,000 South Vietnamese. Lord only knows how many North Vietnamese soldiers were killed...not even counting civilians on both sides.

More later....It's now 4:30 AM and I may as well get dressed.

I got the apartment cleaned this morning and fixed the hamburger pie for lunch. It includes green beans and Bob brought a fresh salad. It was all very good.

I read in the afternoon.  Then I laid down with Missy and took a short nap. Karan brought over my new grey jeans. Bob came over at 5:00 to watch the news and read the papers. He left at 6:00 and I took my bath and Lay with Missy on the sofa and watched the last episode of the "Vietnam War". It was very fact a great documentary. It should win multiple awards. I only wish the present administration would have seen it.

Missy and I  went to bed at 9:00.

I wish the leaders of our country could learn and/or remember the lessons of past wars and conflicts. Main lesson: war = people dying. I think the lesson that politicians have learned is: war = profits for millionaires. Now we have a President who thinks he is clever or entertaining with playground name calling and threats of destruction of another country. No more trying to take the high road like the best leaders in the past did. To me, that's very worrisome.
