>It is 95 degrees Fahrenheit, with a dew point of 72. I love central air. Love it.
Bit of a debacle yesterday. I was up for a couple of days, and when I finally slept, I really slept….right through several phone calls, the door buzzer, knocking on my door, all to the concern of my poor homemaker, who has to work on holidays. All sorted, with calls to the home office (homemaker’s work place), and calls from the home office, and calls from the elder services. Good to know there are people out there who care. They even involved my friend Tess, who is my emergency contact. She thought it was funny, cause she knows I have the ‘awake a long time, sleep like a rock a long time’ thing that happens periodically.
Here’s a quote I came across:
All that happens is that the destruction of human beings (unless they’re Americans) is called collateral damage. Harold Pinter
It kind of makes me sad how poorly the rest of the world thinks of us, but we do deserve it sometimes. I’ve always voted for the people I thought shared my ideals and would make good leaders, but they haven’t always won. The majority of Americans seem to have gone off the rails since 9/11, and lost their ability to think for themselves and have become reliant of anyone who makes them feel safe and right. Right in their ignorance, their prejudice, their bigotry, (prejudice/bigotry, bigotry/prejudice, same things said differently?)their need to feel better than. Better than almost everyone who isn’t them. I’m sorry world, that my country has come to this. It’s not the country I was raised to believe it was. Not anymore, anyway. Maybe it never was, and I was just too young and naive to realize. That’s it for now. Gertrude needs to sit on my lap, apparently, and typing isn’t easy in that situation. LOL
