It must be that time of the year..........

I've been on my 4th jury in less than 24 hours. Come on let's think before we post. Also let's think before we alert.

Right now on Cinemoi, Voyage of the Damned........

vision of Trump's America.

I can't sleep, I've got a toothache & and an.....

infected tooth. Don't see a dentist until Monday @ noon. I don't know how I'm going to survive. Any suggestions, alcohol sounds good, but I've got vicodin in me & that's not even touching taking the pain away.

There was a post earlier today, it was a pic of Trump........

with his right hand extended, and the woman on stage with her right hand in salute to him. Very reminiscent of the German Nazi salute.

I showed my 86 year old mom the photo, and she was literally in tears. She said "those (Germans) shot at my uncles and killed Uncle Mathew."

Her 2 brothers were being shot at by the Japanese, one wounded twice.

She further added that she is so afraid.

My younger brother just stopped in I showed him the photo (I had printed it) & said that it is very disturbing.

Can't refind the post.

I don't often let my 86 year old mother in the kitchen........

During the winter I will allow her to make her soups, that's probably once or twice a month. Otherwise I make all our dinners. But yesterday I let her in the kitchen for her one foray of the summer.

We went to the farmer's market last week and she bought about 30 sweet banana peppers. I bought 3 lbs. of ground turkey & she stuffs the peppers with the turkey and then adds a delicious spaghetti sauce over them & they are delicious.

We had them for dinner last night, two each. To our neighbors we gave away 7. That leaves us with 19, I think my one brother will get 4 or 5 leaving me with 14 I'll have to freeze. But that's okay.

And I'm happy to say, she didn't burn anything down. She often doesn't turn off the burners or leaves the oven on, those are the reasons I don't like her in the kitchen, also the fact that she often doesn't clean up after herself.

The lone survivor is on right now.......

I want to know how many veterans are in the audience. They just panned to one, a Vietnam Vet (at least that's what his hat says).

I introduced my 86 year old mom to Ben & Jerry's...........

yesterday. I bought a pint of Cherry Garcia. She had never had any Ben & Jerry ice cream before. Needless to say there is none left. It was finished after dinner tonight.

I did tell her that the first time I ever had Ben & Jerry's ice cream, I bought a pint of Chunky Monkey and finished it in one sitting.

Needless to say my 86 year old mom is happy today.

Okay update on my first date in 24 years..........

I was to meet him at the concert venue on Friday @ about 7 p.m. I texted him that due to traffic, I'd be there closer to 7:20. No answer to my text. Called him no answer to the call.

Finally hear from him at 7:50 & he tells me where he is sitting. I start walking that way. Stopped right near the audio tent. I called him & told him what I was wearing and where I was. No sign of him.

At 8:10 he says he's in the handicapped parking lot. Great I told him stay there, I'll meet him there.

At 8:25 after 2 failed calls & no sight of him, I texted I was going home. I went home, for a couple of reasons, #1. not being able to find him & #2. I was in extreme pain from being on my feet and walking for nearly 1 hour.

There were only about 800 people at the event and the audio tent was a very easy landmark & there's only one handicapped parking lot.

He has left messages & called several times since Friday. One of the texts was "I really like you", to me that's scary.

Senator Warren not scheduled to speak at the Democratic Convention


I don't post a heck of a lot...........

but tonight I submitted 3 posts & 2 of them hit the front page for "trending now". One is about my having my first date in years tomorrow & the other was about talking to an African American woman at the gas station.

I should post more.
