Today we'll use the last egg. I've ordered groceries from Safeway's home delivery service but it will be Thursday afternoon before they're delivered. Their schedule was full until that time. Given Bob's love affair with Costco we'll not run out of paper goods. We have enough on hand to stock a neighborhood grocery store.
Bob is cold all the time but there's something about snow and ice that draws him out into it. At first it worked to threaten him with a broken hip but eventually he ignored that. He is busy all day opening the door, closing it, and saying "It's still cold out there." Consequently our heat seldom cuts off.
Once he's had all he can stand of that, he makes up excuses to go to the car. Yesterday he decided the windshield wipers needed washing solution added. Since we can't get to the trash area he's storing bags of garbage in the back. Saturday he hiked up to the mailboxes and came back with a bag full of junk mail, not a single piece of it important, and said "It's really slick out there." Yesterday he again went to the mail box, which was not smart since it was a holiday, and again said "It's really slick out there." God give me patience.
I have ordered something called the Congressional Directory 2017. It's a spiral bound directory of the members of Congress. I've ordered these in the past and found them to be a very handy tool. I fill mine with sticky notes of information and refer to it often. It's pricey at $35, but money well spent in my opinion.
Looking for a way to be involved, but living in a blue state where I agree with how the senators and representatives vote, I was feeling a little left out. I have decided instead of writing letters of protest I will write letters of appreciation and encouragement.
I will also be writing to a select group of senators and representatives not from my state but ones I appreciate their work. One will be Senator Diane Feinstein who will be on the front line investigating Russia. She's such a treasure, so professional, and wise. Hard to believe she is 83 years old. She has such a rich life story. Google what she says when you want to know the truth about the Russia investigation.
Another will be Senator Al Franken. He's done a tremendous job on the confirmation hearings. He's a sharp guy. I value his opinions.
Senator Kamala Harris is newly elected to the Senate. She's walking right into the fire. She's a bright young woman and on paper sounds like a good possibility for a presidential candidate if she can survive today's politics. She has a fascinating life story.
"At this point, without further investigation, it is just as wrong to say Trump is "illegitimate" as to say he won "fair and square."
