Payback is a bitch, Mitch.

This is what he gets for sicing the orange a-hole on us in 2016, then propping him for next 4 years. I hope you drown in your tears.

People are out spending their stimulus money.

Went to buy a new phone, larger screen, because I use my phone for everything. I have a refurbished chrome book but I don't use it. Anyway, I had my daughter take me to the phone store that my carrier is thru. I have a prepaid phone because it cheap, only costing $30.00 a month.

Got to the store, and couldn't believe what I was seeing. Now this is a store that hardly ever has any customers. In warm weather you can go by and see the clerks standing outside waiting customers. I kid you not.

Well, not today. They were packed with customers. Needless to say I did not get my phone today from that store. My daughter said she thinks people got their stimulus money and were getting new phones or whatever. I agreed, came home and bought the phone I wanted on Amazon.

Hopefully when I take my new phone to them to transfer my old phone to new phone they'll be less busy.

I can safely say I am a positive thinker.

I can positively say that Rump is completely crazy.

My granddaughter is National Guard

And has just been called up to go to Philadelphia where they are having problems with looters. I just know she'll be fine, but I can't help worrying about her.

Just donated to Joe's campaign

It's hard because I don't get much from my SS, but my freedom is worth a lot more. That's how I look at it.

Hooray! Just got my absentee ballot in the mail.

Voted, of course for Joe, will mail it back tomorrow. Read all instructions twice because I wanted to make sure I did it properly. So that's one PA vote for Joe.

What I saw from my vacation at Rehoboth Beach, DE

In Rehoboth everyone wore masks in stores and restaurants. In one store on the boardwalk had " trump 2020" masks amongst others however as most of the others had spaces where people had purchased them the trump masks were full.

On the way home only saw one trump sign in DE. What got me though as we enter PA I saw only three trump signs especially as came closer to home. In 2016 around my home it was loaded with trump signs at this time of year. So I'm looking at that as a very good sign.

P.S. I don't Biden signs are out till he's officially nominated.

National Guard is rolling into my town

My daughter-in-law just called to tell me they are passing several National Guard trucks, big and small and along with tanker truck. They just dropped me off and were heading home on Rt. 72.

There is to be a protest tonight. We saw that the county Courthouse was being totally fenced off with what we call around here, snow fence. We are close to Fort Indiantown Gap where a lot of the Guard trains.

I live in PA about 10 to 12 miles east of Hershey. We are just a small town that is red as can be.

Hope everybody stays safe as we are still in the yellow phase of reopening.
