Tenterhooks, those hooks that hold fabric over the “tent” during manufacture? Not what’s on my mind.

I’m much more worried about what is going on with my country and it is scaring me half to death. Not just scary, though. Horribly depressing.

Now that I’ve said that, I’m going to make an effort to return to not thinking. I’m worded out. Read out. Mentally exhausted, angry, frustrated, and wounded. If I live long enough to vote again, I hope I get to see every last Republican voted out of government. Then, let’s call on the ghosts of Wyatt Earp and his boys — and have them run every last one of those evil bastards out-of-town.

Every town.



Let them live on dry sand and cactus under a relentless sky.

Nothing makes us all feel so frightened and vulnerable as realizing we have an out-of-control government and nothing we can do about it. It is a genuinely terrifying experience and I do not wish this on anyone.

    Not just an out-of-control government, but a mentally unstable, unhinged president.

    My mum always said there are more out than in.

      Yes, very very out and a huge amount more out than in. It is awfully demoralizing. I thought I would be retired and this would be time to relax and enjoy. Instead, it’s hyper-tension time. An awful time to be American.

      Do you also feel like you took some bizarre drug and this is some kind of hallucination? Because it feels unreal.
