Going Home (to a funeral)

rfx-2 (03nov2018)_rzThe financial sacrifice in my choice to stay at a hotel instead of a relative’s home when I go home to Philadelphia (to attend my mother’s funeral) is well worth the cost. It means I don’t have to [continuously] contend with any family drama. And oh, how I abhor drama (i.e., bickering, backbiting, et al) of any kind; most especially that of family, and particularly the kind of family drama which often is created and lingers whenever a beloved family matriarch (like my mom) or patriarch transitions! I’ve experienced that sort of thing some twenty years ago when the matriarch of my [then] in-laws transitioned. I remember promising myself to never again put or keep myself in, near, or around such a fugly environment! (Some of you reading this can relate.)

My mind is now and will continue to be at peace during my stay in Philly, knowing that I can always return to the peaceful sanctity – and privacy – of my hotel room each night until I return to my home in Saginaw.

Happy New Year!

I have never tried nor wanted to grab anyone “by the pussy” (simply isn’t my style nor my character) but I have often tried and sometimes even succeeded, to do what this meme says. LOLBVS!
Carpe ScrotumHere’s to 12 months, 52, weeks, and 365 more days towards making that attempt once again.

Trump and the 12 Days of Xmas (2018)

As Donald J. Trump sits “all alone in the White House” during what is now the THIRD (3rd) U.S. federal government shutdown this year (2018) under his administration, perhaps those of us who truly despise the man should imagine him singing the tune to the [238 year-old] song, “The Twelve Days of Christmas” as depicted in this cartoon meme I found in my Facebook newsfeed:

As We Approach Election Day…

Regardless of your political views, participating in the voting process in any election period is and always should be considered important and serious business. We need to take voting and the voting process personally because the results of an election may on some personal level, affect each of us either directly or indirectly.

It has never been my style as a member of the electorate and certainly not as a non-candidate for political office, to ever tell other members of the electorate/other non-candidates whom or what to vote for or against. (I simply think that sort of thing is tacky.) However, there can be negative consequences when one either refuses or does not exercise his or her given right or privilege to vote. Voting in an election – which is a very simple yet silent exercise of free speech, is one of the American freedoms which no eligible and registered-to-vote citizen of the United States ever ought to take for granted.

With all of us having been bombarded with a shitload of political ads over the past six months or so (with many of them consisting of downright deceptions, lies, half-truths or exaggerations), I don’t see anything wrong with posting a little lite humor as Election Day 2018 approaches. This photo/meme I found on the web gave me a chuckle. I thought it reflected one humorous example – although a bit biased, of the negative consequences of not voting.

MEME_Humor (voting)I’m sure you already know and perhaps may have experienced a number of others.

Unless you’ve already voted early or voted absentee, I hope to see you at the polls Tuesday, November 6, 2018.

Three Kinds of People…

I’m old enough to know (and life continues to remind me) that in the so-called “two/three kinds of people in the world” scenario, there is yet another category set to consider (at least as far as I’m concerned):

Three Kinds of People (article pic 1)

  • those who don’t have a clue
  • those who don’t give a fuck
    and
  • those who do

Of the three categories listed, some people do not know where they would stand or fit nor why. Other people however, do. I suppose the latter is a good thing because living life is easier when the other person either already knows, can clearly see, or is shown exactly where you fit and where they fit.

Hopefully you will always be associated with people who continuously show themselves to have an intelligent clue about both the important things in life and the seemingly or supposedly less-significant things in life; people who also can – or at least would be willing to give a fuck about many, if not most or all, of the same things you do.
