From when actors actually had talent...

Those piercing blue eyes will be missed.

Today's Quote

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, cone a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."~Robert Heinlein

An open letter to Barrack Obama

Since I can't get his "contact us" e-mail option to work, I'll just post this here. Here is the link for the article mentioned:

Senator Obama:

In the SF Gate you're quoted as saying, ""I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face."

I don't appreciate that, sir. Most folks here in Kentucky are more polite than that, but there is always the one who isn't. I certainly hope neither I nor anyone I know runs into "the one" because it is both rude and threatening to do what you have suggested. Surely you don't mean that to be "marching orders", do you, sir? Because should someone get OVERLY aggressive about your campaign with me, I will defend myself and my loved ones.

Perhaps I'm a Democrat. Perhaps I'm a Republican. You don't know. But what you should know now is that your statement was either deliberately inflammatory or suggestively inflammatory. And certainly no way to run a "civilized" campaign.

I wish you the best - that God's will be done in your life and that you have peace within yourself.

Mrs. Pharris

Not exactly an old friend....

My annual bout with bronchitis has made its presence known. I'll be doing well to breathe in the next week or so. Prayers are appreciated as I make my annual pilgrimage into nebulizer treatments and steroid use.

PS: I'm still losing weight, so please pray specifically for the steroids to NOT affect that! Thanks, and God bless you all!

I had a visitor this Summer...

She stayed for a sip of nectar...

We had a lovely visit!
