The respite in our weather has been amazing these last two days! I spent most of yesterday in the garage sorting and putting away things that hadn't found their way "home" when winter set in. As I have to rebuild the "stovepipe" out there before I have heat, I hadn't bothered until it was warm! I started out planning to build a riser for my computer desk, as I need a way to slip the keyboard under the monitor to have room to use the new graphics pad I picked up a few weeks back, but in trying to get to the things I needed to cut and build it, I got sidetracked!
Today it's even warmer, so my plan is to wash my truck and perhaps get a coat of wax on it.
Dillon is spending the weekend and tomorrow Dottie plans on taking his Mom antiquing as she never spent all of her "birthday money" the last time. If he feels like going then I will tag along, if not I'll stay here with him.
I "let my fingers" do the walking yesterday just for some fun, thinking I had seen photos of Harry Truman in the Oval Office working in shirt sleeves. When I "Googled" I came up with some of F.D.R. but since they said they were "rights managed" I didn't dare to post them, sorry! If you Google "Roosevelt Oval Office" and click on images all 3 come up on the first two pages...of course if I'm lucky I just set a link to the first one!
Needless to say, I have own thoughts about the "sour grapes" being thrown on Captol Hill right now and by those sent packing last month...be it someone trying to play a trump "Card" in their complaint about "the dignity of the office" being compromised by someone actually working for the people there, or the ones being tossed by the war criminal formerly known as VP!
I've heard Senators this week claim that creating jobs in the National Parks doesn't help our economy...excuse me, but if someone is getting a paycheck that wasn't getting one before, they are spending money they didn't have before...do you really think we are so stupid?
Basically, I think those who are decrying the spending are actually decrying the drop in their campaign coffers they foresee if their friends on Wall Street and in that top 1% of the income bracket have to pay their fair share of anything...
Sorry...I know many of you are "politicked out" at this point, or just plain "ticked". Forgive the rant...
May the weekend be kind to each of you!
Postscript: 6:44pm...truck is handwashed and thanks to my son and grandson has a fresh coat of Meguiar's Paste Tech Wax on it, along with tire dressing, Rain-X and that new State Park sticker we picked up last week! C'mon spring!!!
