HERE I AM AGAIN

Recently realized it’s been three months since I wrote “Out Like a Lion.” And suddenly it’s the Fourth of July — time flies whether or not fun is involved — and I wanted to send my loyal, intrepid followers greetings and good wishes on this anniversary of our nation’s independence.

This year we had a four day celebration since today’s a Tuesday — and we needed every one of them, many of us weary of the seemingly constant turmoil  in Washington and the world. Our so-called president seems more unhinged every day while his fans still adore him.

Outrageous tweets.  Bizarre behavior. Alternate “facts,” Health care plans on life support.  Environmental protections dismantled. The Russian question. And more. Our founding fathers would be scandalized and horrified.  And we have to worry about Putin in Russia.  Kim Jong-un in North Korea.  Conflict and unrest in so many countries —  Britain.  Russia.  Ukraine.  Israel.  Palestine.  An endless list.

Time for Angel and me to go to bed.  She’s got an early vet appointment in the morning.  Tests for her Cushing’s disease.  But she’s doing well, thankfully, with her medications, now about 10 years of age. I wasn’t well again recently — another bout of depression, and back in Sheppard Pratt for new medications.  More on that later, maybe.  Happy times, too, lately — Nolan and Jack’s joint 5th and 3rd birthday party in a park — 20 kids, parents, pizza, pinatas, masks.   So good to be home.

    Loved your summary of our current Washington debacle – perfectly written words about a perfectly horrible situation. So glad your long weekend was a salve for the soul as are your grandchildren and Angel.
    Here’s hoping for good health as the summer rolls on!
