Well, it happened, Hillary has the delegates to be the Democratic nominee for the 2016 election, first woman to head a major party ticket. Now, Bernie, it's time for you to gather your flock and decide where and how you want to have the biggest impact on the coming Democratic Convention and the party's platform. You need to begin planning how you're going to move Hillary further to the left and Hillary has to decide how far to the left she's willing to go to bridge the gap to Bernie's people.
Meanwhile we have the Republicans running to the right and jumping off a cliff over there.
In the middle we have Barnum and Bailey Circus, featuring Donald Trump for 2016.
Who could ask for more?
One thing that continues to fascinate me about Bob is his fascination with digital devices. He did not have a career that would lend itself to being proficient with such devices.
When time came that daughter introduced us to the iPhone idea he was all for it, me, not so much. He wakes up every morning with his mind a blank screen. Never remembers from one day to the next what he did the day before on these devices. He has an iPhone, and iPad, and an iMac computer. He's clueless about all of them.
He's managed to grasp how to get to his lab results. He's got that. He's definitely got that down cold.
I have the iMac set up with the obituary pages from every place we've ever lived. Every morning he gets up and checks obituaries.
Next he hits Facebook. He does not type so he never responds to anything or anybody. He just scrolls and looks. I have him set up as 'friends' with all his nieces and nephews back in Texas, plus some old railroad buddies, and a couple from his high school.
He's pretty good at looking up odd phone numbers. He has a thing about telephone calls that we don't recognize the number. He chases all those down on the computer.
I'm hesitate to click on anything I'm not sure of but not Bob. He throws caution to the wind and clicks on everything. I frequently have to get him out of some mess he's gotten himself into but he never gives up. The next day he's right back at it.
He never deletes or updates anything. Sometimes I do it, sometimes daughter does it but we have to spend some time cleaning up and updating the devices he uses.
We laugh about it but we wouldn't have it any other way. I'm delighted that he wakes up every morning eager to go at it again.
