I Think It Has Been One Year...

Speak No Emoji


Of keeping my mouth firmly and quite painfully shut. Quietly sitting by and watching the events unfold. Only sharing my thoughts with two or three friends who I was sure was not going to hold my opinions against me. Who would be happy to discuss rather than debate or at least debate sensibly. Making a couple of attempts at just clearing up a misconception only to get a finger wagging, looks of fury, or questions I that I know the answers will lead to anger.

So I say nothing.

I did the same thing eight years ago. And then four years ago.

After tomorrow, who knows?

Years ago, on Facebook, I asked my friends and family that they be kind to one another, whether their guy wins or not. Please. Be kind. I'm not even bothering this time because given what I have silently seen and heard, no one is going to see or hear me.

They don't want to. And they have made that abundantly clear.

So I'm Going to Go Ahead And Put This Out There...

Butterbeer is the most horrible batch of disgusting I have ever tasted.


Right up there with Candy Corn and Crystal Pepsi.

Just liquid evil.

Even the ghost of my baby teeth got angry at me.

Stay away from the Devil's Pee!

Pumpkin Juice though?

Pumpkin Juice is WONDERFUL!

Oh yeah!

Little Rose

...I'm on tour again.

We've been on the road since late September.

My diet is horrible right now.

My sleep patterns are off again.

I need a new phone.

And glasses.

So everything is...normal.

Just to get a touring thing off my chest; I look after our costumes and I have a rant just for the modern washing machine.

You have one job to do. One job. And that is to make my life easier.

I am all for conserving water. Yet you were the exception I was willing to make. Just fill your tub with water, swish my clothes around vigorously, spin and stop! Really, this should take no longer than 10 to 15 minutes TOPS! Sensing my laundry? Why are you sensing my laundry and why does it take you up to five minutes to do this? And good Lord! Spin a bit and spray a little water. Stop. Spin a bit and spray a little water. Stop. REALLY? Why don't I just tie my clothes to my dog, let him drag them around the backyard while I spray them with the hose?


You know where I am right now? I want to go back to washing machine roots. The Maytag Wringer Washer is before my time. I've only seen them on film and in pictures. I've never used one in my life. Yet THAT blast from the past is looking more appealing right now than you modern time wasters.

I may get one just for kicks.

I'll be back later...



Happy Birthday, Brother Michael! I still miss you!


Rest easy, Brother Gene. I'm going to miss you so much!

He's home Gilda. Hold him close for us!
