STATE OF MY NATION – Marilyn Armstrong

STATE OF MY NATION - RDP SATURDAY I have forbidden television viewing today. It's the Republican opportunity to deny everything and I don't think I can handle it. Worse, this might be the broadcast that finally makes Garry kick the TV until it shatters. Since we need to fix a broken toilet and the floor … Continue reading STATE OF MY NATION – Marilyn Armstrong

OUT MY BACK DOOR – Marilyn Armstrong

Ragtag Daily Prompt: Out My Backdoor I look out my backdoor a lot. It's a small deck leading to a rather small lawned area that when we were younger and more socially active, was the scene of many summertime barbecues, the building of a tepee, and just handing out. The tepee is gone. The idea … Continue reading OUT MY BACK DOOR – Marilyn Armstrong

HOW MANY MAGNANIMOUSES MAKE UP A CONFUSION? – Marilyn Armstrong

Magnanimous but Confused It is a beautiful day. Cool, comfortable, with a shining sun and no rain predicted. It doesn't mean it won't rain. It just means it's less likely to rain than if they had predicted rain and anyway, it's less like to rain as hard as it might if they had assured us … Continue reading HOW MANY MAGNANIMOUSES MAKE UP A CONFUSION? – Marilyn Armstrong

IMPEACHMENT (FINALLY) NOW! As I write this, I'm watching the Speaker of the House of Representatives formally open an impeachment inquiry into the Twitler-in-Chief. What did it take? Well, a whistle-blower went through legal channels and brought a complaint about the President that was so bad is caused the Trump-appointed Inspector General to totally freak … Continue reading TO IMPEACH OR NOT?

THE EARLY GOLD OF AUTUMN – Marilyn Armstrong

The leaves have definitely begun to change! The aspens are bright yellow and there are edges of red on the maples. There is a hint of gold on al the leaves as if some painter was doing a watercolor and washed it with light golden amber. And there were a bunch of Tufted Titmouses on … Continue reading THE EARLY GOLD OF AUTUMN – Marilyn Armstrong

HAPPENSTANCE JUST HAPPENS – Marilyn Armstrong

RDP Wednesday – HAPPENSTANCE It has been one of those weeks. We were supposed to go away at the end of the week to celebrate being alive and surviving this year, but happenstance really happened big-time. First, I got sick. I wasn't sure I was sick until I talked to Cherrie and she had the same … Continue reading HAPPENSTANCE JUST HAPPENS – Marilyn Armstrong

INFURIATION, RAGE, ANGER, AND OTHER BLOOD PRESSURE-RAISING MOODS – Marilyn Armstrong

RDP-Sunday–INFURIATE Ever since Garry said he was sure I was going to have a stroke if I didn't calm down, I have calmed down. Mostly by having all of these rage-filled battles online rather than on the phone. I didn't really think I'd have a stroke, but who knows? Nothing good was going to come … Continue reading INFURIATION, RAGE, ANGER, AND OTHER BLOOD PRESSURE-RAISING MOODS – Marilyn Armstrong
