Hot and dusty


Water-lily -- Nymphaea

Water-lily — Nymphaea

Cold and rainy once again; my joints are tender and sore. Snow showers for tonight and tomorrow then warming a bit. We may get more than showers if the snow front now moving toward Chicago drops a bit further south than is anticipated.

The National Rifle Association is sponsoring a NASCAR race in Texas this year. I wonder if Ted Nugent will play and sing the National Anthem while our military jets fly overhead? A bit ironic, I think. Yee-Haw for the good ol’ boys!
In a related note, last Sunday’s race was won by Carl Edwards but I had to wait until Monday to find out. The first headline I saw on Sunday was “Danica wrecks”. How come a mere wreck is more important than the race winner? How come the lone female racer gets first name treatment from the media and the 42 men who participated are referred to by their last names?

I haven’t seen Sammy in quite awhile. He had a cold and was being contrary. He must have gone to the local kid’s museum yesterday because Ashley put a couple of his pics on Facebook. Chris gave a baby shower for Mason last Saturday and he got a lot of baby-type loot; clothes, toys, and diapers.

Have a Tuesday!

  1. I know you like car races. Hope your favourite racers win.
    It was nice day in Warsaw but next week will be cold again; cold and snowy. Brrrrr. Please take of yourself … and the babies.
    Love your photo of water lily. 🙂
    xo

    • I don’t care much for car races anymore since it has become about money instead of people.
      Stay warm, my friend.
      Thanks, Jola. 🙂

  2. Danica is money to Nascar and she is feisty compared to others. A win would do wonders for ratings.

    NRA and Nascar make good bedfellows. Ted singing the national anthem would send liberals into a frenzy.

    Hopefully Sammy gets over soon so the indoctrination can continue.

    • Danica ain’t one of the good old boys; she can have a big hand in saving NASCAR from itself.
      I miss Sammy.
      Thanks, Mark.
