Where the white folks are....



If you were to look back four or eight years you would see that the k+b is wall to wall politics . You can follow along as I am forced to leave my own Senator there in that long ago Summer of 2008 and fall head over heels in love with Barack Obama.

That was then. I have not been writing about any political things lately because NOTHING IS MAKING ANY SENSE at all out there. Billionaires and almost Octogenarian Communists all over the news... wrapping your head around it is hard. But I got to play with some real numbers for the first time tonight and as y'all know that makes me happy.

It's late now, but I am diving head first into the deep in come tomorrow....

Slow your roll, Berniebots ....

through the looking glass


More snow inside Sanford Stadium today than in my yard here in almost Canada....


Holding Pattern

 Yes, they are saying that winter is on its way here at this crazy late date - folks in other parts of the country starting to think about spring. But today was still the same old grey not to cold we have had for weeks now.

Out and about for some sniffing and such.

Laissez les bon temps roulez

Dinner



Been in a bit of junk phase the last few. I needed a real sit down with meat and veggies. 
OR as close as you can get in the dead of winter while shopping only in Mendon.

  • Pork Chop
  • Mushroom Rice
  • Sweet Potato
  • Brussels Sprouts

Winter is Coming




A true hazy shade of winter today. The full grey palette of the season taking charge from the bright chilly sunshine of the weekend. Got in a good walk, but our heart was not in it like the last few days. Still a lot of folks out - enjoying this rare easy access . All coming to a crashing end this weekend.
