Whatever else he may be, Trump at least is not an ostrich – REBLOG – The Shinbone Star

I find it so much easier to let other people say what I’m thinking. It’s a lot less exhausting than writing these things myself. And you know the WORST thing (personally) about all this mess? It has ruined my retirement. It has taken the relaxation and dredged it with dirt and horror stories. After a lifetime of horror stories, I thought I might get a little time off.

I wanted a key that would unlock the meaning of everything. I've written about "The Meaning of Everything."  It is my all-time favorite post, even … Continue reading A WHISPER TO CHANGE THE WORLD – Marilyn Armstrong

BRIGHT YELLOW GOLDFINCH – Marilyn Armstrong

I have a lot of news to convey. So much that I thought I'd just show pictures of the bright yellow Goldfinches that have been hovering around the house. We are surrounded by wildlife apparently lured here by the vast quantity of black sunflower seeds. The doves nestle into the flat feeder and don't leave … Continue reading BRIGHT YELLOW GOLDFINCH – Marilyn Armstrong

A FAILURE TO COMMUNICATE – Marilyn Armstrong

A MERE FAILURE TO COMMUNICATE, BOSS This is one of the biggest problems with electronic communication. I suppose it's a problem with any communication that isn't face-to-face. People probably misunderstood each other's handwritten letters too. 😀  I believe the  🙂  was invented to convey that what you wrote was not meant negatively  😦  Emojis are … Continue reading A FAILURE TO COMMUNICATE – Marilyn Armstrong
