LA Guns: The Ballad of Jayne

I almost went to see LA Guns along with Tom Keifer a few weeks ago---and regret not doing so. At least I can see them on YouTube:

Was in Milton, DE today

A friend (who is a teacher) bought a house--and I loved it; ranch, huge yard, huge garage, metal roof, lots to like. Then I noticed that he is sandwiched in between two houses with some version of a Trump flag flying---one said "Trump 2024: Take America Back) and I couldn't read the other one.

The most disturbing thing about the whole situation is that, over dinner, my friend (granted, he doesn't follow politics much) states that "If Trump and Biden run again in 2024, I'd have a hard time deciding who to vote for...and I think Biden would be crushed in a landslide."

After threatening to stab him in the neck with my fork, he explained that he (and "a lot of people) blame Biden for:

Gas prices
Not stopping COVID sooner

This led to a protracted argument, but I learned two things. One, I don't like his house anymore. Two, I have a lot of educating to do with this teacher.

Holy moly......

What does make me feel better is the giant BIDEN sign painted on a barn at a farm along Rt. 1. on my way to the beach Makes me smile and feel better every time I see it!

Repuke House candidate approached me

And my friends at the Italian Festival in Wilmington this evening. There were 8 of us sitting there at a picnic table enjoying our food when Lee Murphy approached us. He did shake two people's hands before we realized who he was, then we noted that we were a "table full of proud Democrats." He said "you should try the other side." I said "Not gonna happen" and he moved on. Then we returned to enjoying our spaghetti.

On a side note, 2 dipsticks wearing "Infowars" t-shirts walked by shortly after. I guess in any crowd you would be able to find a few (hopefully a minority) idiots and deplorables.
