Walking Into My grave

Tonight I walked our town cemetery, looking for/finding friends. No names, as privacy
extends beyond, but I saw one stone, a duet marker as yet incomplete, the husband
yet alive.
I wondered how it was for him, to see his name and birthdate there next to his wife's particulars.
Moving on, I saw a classmate, and recalled when he passed.
But then the living.
I continued my walk at home, visiting with a neighbor; my usual route and then more visiting with friends coming out of a restaurant.
About the walking-back in May I hit the Diabetes lottery and came out a winner.
So now I have changed everything in my life, and go out walking most every night.
Sounds odd, but this diabetes has been a blessing, in that it has forced me to focus more on remaining as healthy as I can for as long as possible.
Look for another post soon.

Focusing On A Square

"Sharknado 3" is made all the more majical with the casting coup inclusion of Anthony Weiner Abedin's as NASA Mission Control Administrator Regina.
He's a natural-when he's watching that white square cube for early warning reports of Sharknados...you feel as if he's really, really watching it! 
Like to see Meryl Streep try to match Tony Abedin's stagecraftiness!

Stain The Coarse

Staying the course.
Let Hillary denigrate Trump.
Let Trump riposte.
Nothing she says will change my mind about voting for Trump.
Nothing He says will change my mind about voting for Trump.
Wondering about the picture?
Up until THIS ELECTION, "The Heat" was the worst thing I'd seen...
and I only wasted 12 minutes on that before giving up.
We still have 80 plus days to endure this contest, including at least
5 'October Surprises' because every previous election only needed one.
This is five times worse.
Stay the course-someday it will all be over and we can get back to our simulacrum 
of a decent country.

Back To Basics

"How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,     
Nor stand in the path of sinners,     
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!     
But his delight is in the law of the LORD,     
And in His law he meditates day and night.  
He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water,     
Which yields its fruit in its season     
And its leaf does not wither;     
And in whatever he does, he prospers.    
The wicked are not so,     
But they are like chaff which the wind drives away.   
Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,     
Nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.     
For the LORD knows the way of the righteous,     
But the way of the wicked will perish."

Christians may seems odd to you.
Our lives have Christ as our foundation.
He is working in us to make us like Himself.
Wicked scoffing sinners have what for a foundation?
Here's the funny thing-Christ is the one who saves us
from... the ranks of
wicked scoffing sinners.
No one is born holy-what you are we once were.
Don't think that there's no chance for you to be saved~
while you are still alive there is Hope.
Seek Him.

Speaking Of Heroes...

Nadezhda Bazhina. Russian High diver at the Olympical thing.
Jah-she flopped instead of flipped and landed her firmament in the water backwards.
On the largest possible global stage she went all Laces Out.
My Hero!
Because she's young and will get over this.
Because one bad dive doesn't define an athelete.
Because she is among the world's best, who won the right to represent her country in Rio.
People who never make mistakes never improve.
Nadezhda Bazhina reminds me that we all fail at times, and it humbles us.
That is good.

Wherever You Fnd Your Heroes...

If they make you better,
Boost them.
Cheer them.
Quote them.

It's not the Ferguson, but it's still pretty good.

Yup-I Remembered It Right!

Something bugging me all afternoon-first off, this isn't so much a political post as it is me trying to wrap my head around something that happened years ago. The graphic above, formatted to fit-is from the Huffington Post, two years ago.
What bugged me: I had heard Hillary Clinton state on a video that 'she and Bill were dead broke when they left the White House'.
I'm not sure if the minimum had been raised above $200,000 per year for the President in 2001-but let's just for fun(ny) set it at $200,000.
Eight years equals 1,600,000.
Dead broke?
If I had earned 1,600,000...I would be considered 'wealthy'.
How fiscally irresponsible must you be to earn that much and end up "Dead Broke"?
I'm not just rhetoricalizing-I really can't understand WHY this is part of the Clinton narrative.
To show that they are just 'common folk' who live hand to mouth with the rest of us?
Shame? Naw.
Stage setting? Making it appear that Hillary has overcome so many obstacles on her journey?
I don't believe that they were 'dead broke' when they vacated  the White House. If they were broke...they have somehow survived with bank accounts intact.  And how!

Happy Haloween, Everybody!

Can we all just get along?
As of right now (!) 95 days until the Election.
Each side will say unbelievable things about the other.
And Polls!
Polls are the most fantastic fairy-dust foolishness ever perpetrated on a humble populace.
Polls should not be believed, EVER. The last two days before an election polls usually
'tighten up' and approach Reality so that the pollsters can claim to have 'gotten it right'.
But even then...naw.
Here's an idea-hold the Candidates-all four of them-to the same personal standard that
you have for yourself.
If you hate lying and refuse to lie...
If you honor truth...
If you always accept responsibility for your actions...
If you do your best to follow the Golden rule...
don't accept any candidate who doesn't measure up to your standard.
See you in November.

Vlad Tepes For United Nations Sec Gen!!!!

The charming fellow pictured above in an artist's rendering is Vlad Tepes, Vlad the Impaler,
alleged proto of Bram Stoker's Dracula.
His main CTF?
Keeping the Muslims from taking over Europe.
His diplomacy included large pointed sticks...and he succeeded.
As a boy he had been kidnapped/ransomed by the Ottomans (Muslims); he learned their language and later in life would dress as an Ottoman (no mention made of a cohort disguised as a Lazyboy), infiltrate their camps and set about perpetrating as much breaking bad as he could.
If he were here working his progrom (sorry-program) today, Democrats would call him a hater and write legislation demanding that the large pointed sticks not exceed a half an inch in length, be composed only of air as wood is harmful to the environment. I know, right?
