Need help getting my Christmas spirit back.

My asshole trumpy neighbor tagged a large boulder on the hillside above our homes with fluorescent orange paint. I thought it was for his stupid lame ridiculous nasty shooting fun. He's shooting, as I write this. It is dusk. Quite the "improvement" on nature.

Only today, in my hike up to the national forest behind our place, did I see it says Trump 2020. Facing right at our house, no one else can see it. Visible from our deck. Clearly directed at us after we put up our lowprofile Biden etc. signs.

How do I not wish for something terrible to befall him?

Certainly won't let him know it upsets me. The desecration of nature is what's worst.

Paintball guns and indulge in some holiday paintball fun!!! That might bring a little Christmas spirit! Decorate that boulder! I’m not entirely serious but maybe if you envision doing that it will make you feel better. And have a glass or two of wine.

How strong and powerful he must think you are to make him climb up that hill and paint that bolder. Can you imagine expending that much energy doing something just to irritate someone? Personally, he blinked, you win.

we put up an American flag for the 1st time! It waves up above our Black Lives Matter sign.

My big FU to all the trumpers in our rural neighborhood.

I suppose the symbolism is lost on them.

Biden Inauguration Day!

Christmas will be kind of anti-climactic this year. The dark really begins to retreat on January 20!
