Being apartment dwellers and someone else doing the landscaping I don't pay a lot of attention to what goes on but lately some things have been bugging me. It's odd how we live with something day in and day out and never notice and then one day something jumps into your vision you need to deal with. We've been here two years with two large rhododendron bushes grown up over the living room windows. Over the week-end that suddenly bothered me.
I turned in a work order for someone in landscaping to come and remove those old bushes that have outgrown their prime and replace with two smaller bushes that won't grow so large. I saw a worker out there looking at them earlier. Wonder if that means they're actually considering my request.
Daughter asked if we were allowed to turn in work orders on landscaping. I have no idea but since I turned in a work order for a French drain and got it I thought I'd see what they'd do about this request. I'm tired of having my windows blocked by bushes. I figure, nothing ventured, nothing gained.
I like to get up early and dress first thing. For some reason I've lost all disciple about that. Bob does not come out in the mornings until he is dressed and has made up his bed.
I could do that as well but I don't, though there was a time when I did. I've decided it's because I'm so eager to get to some digital device I just throw on a robe and next thing you know I've been sitting in that robe for three hours reading stuff on digital devices. By then I'm sluggish, and have to push myself to get in the shower. It feels like I'm starting the day all over again when half of it is already passed.
I gave myself a talking to this morning and in the morning I'm going to also dress and make my bed before coming to the living room. I think my attitude will be better about the day before me.
Are you aware we have two Hillary Clintons running in this election? Yep we do. You see about 1994 Republicans came up with two very scary cartoon figures named Bill and Hillary and they began to write stories about them, scary, frightening stories. Their readers loved those scary stories so they wrote more and so it has gone until today. It's next to impossible to change the mind of anyone who bought into this fictional series about the Clintons. Don't bother trying.
Then there's the other Clintons, the real Clintons. They have done a lot of good for this country. The facts are there for anyone who believes in facts. They've also made mistakes and those are documented as well for those who like documentation for what they believe. The latest scandals have been Benghazi, which Republicans have spent two years and millions of dollars trying to prove wrong doing but came up empty handed. The other was the famous email server scandal. I don't have a clue what went on about that situation. It's been investigated and the FBI and Department of Justice have said there's no grounds for criminal charges. Republicans don't trust the FBI and the Department of Justice.
You have to choose between the fictional and the real Hillary. It's impossible to merge the two accounts. I'm not a happy Hillary supporter. In fact I'm pretty disgusted she's the Democratic candidate. I've muttered a lot about it. Then I listened and watched 75 minutes of Donald Trump, red faced and screaming things I believe only a mad man, a man who's unhinged, would say. Things that cannot be proved true but many things that can be proved false.
That sent me scurrying into the lap of Hillary. She's not my first choice but she's no where near as dangerous as Donald Trump. That said, I have this to say to the Democratic Party. "Don't do this again. Get your act together, groom some young Democrats, and have us some new faces to choose from in 2020. You nearly sent the country down the river this time. Don't do it again."
(Thanks to Bill Clinton for the cartoon character idea)
