The oddest dream I've had since I had s-e-x with Obama! LOL

In my dream last night, I was a personal guest of Trump's at one of his many mansions. I remember distinctly feeling afraid .... like I was a captive. There was no one else around so it wasn't one of his gala affairs.

This dream is disjointed .......

Next thing I recall is that we both went to a dressing room where makeup artists were waiting to paint our faces with that orange shade of foundation that Trump always wears and combed our hair. We had photos taken without smiling.

Next recall ......

Trump led me to a hidden room, pointed to a cabinet and said I should partake of his special cigarettes, that they were there just for very special people. First, though, he ordered me to stop, that I dared not walk into that room with shoes on.

That's it. I woke up feeling panicky. I felt as though I was being lured and that he intended to drug me. Weird, huh? What the heck???

I must say, my dream about having s-e-x with Obama was a lot more pleasant. ROFLMBQ!

Trump was well advised in advance to follow the teleprompter in delivering his SOTU address - which he managed quite well but with obvious help and rehearsal. The writers of the script were careful not to use words containing more than two syllables, used nary a word that stretched his limited vocabulary beyond sixth grade comprehension, forbid his normal load of profanity and used deliberately constructed sentences that were restricted to tightly measured sound bytes. In other words, the effort made equates to, "Keep it simple, Stupid".

Applause was surely prompted by cue cards as were: stand, sit, bow, clap LONG and hard, all very carefully construed. The size of the crowd of attendees in support was larger than any in American history and they hung on his every word in adoring worship.

En total, he promised us the world on a silver platter... lots and lots of billion/trillion dollar promises. He assured us he is filled to the brim with Christian love for each and every one of us.

There's one major thing that leaves me uneasy. WHO pays for it? Where does the money come from? We don't even have an operating budget, let alone a future budget. Help me do that math.

Skariff posted a brilliant poem yesterday, a poem that is as applicable in meaning today as it was ages ago. It was artfully and heatfully composed by William Butler Yeats in the een hundreds, but Skariff's posting at this particular time in our American history really brings it home to me. If you haven't read Skariff's reference to Yeats, by all means do so. The title of the poem is The Second Coming ... just in case you missed it.

You could say Yeats was a diiple of Percy Bysshe Shelley who preceded him on the world literary ene. Yeats was inspired by Shelley in writing The Second Coming. ; thus, I thought Shelley's Ozymandias the perfect, precursory accompaniment to that poem.

I'd like to dedicate it to Trump and all his many towers .......... hopefully, It's humbling.

Ozymandias

Percy Bysshe Shelley, 1792 - 1822
.
I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: “ vast and trunkless legs of st
Stand in the desert . . . Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its ulptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
‘My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!'
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The l and level sands stretch far away.”

How can it be announced in the Trump luvin' press one day that he is found to be in 'excellent health,' and twelve hours later, we hear he has a heart condition that needs to be addressed?

Here we have an overweight, McDonald's junky with a heart condition. When was this diagnosis proclaimed an 'excellent health' condition?

Just HOW can a minority party be held accountable for a bill not passed in the House? Seems to me it bears PROOF that the party in control has lost its own support! Who here is dumb enough NOT to see this?? Talk about SPIN!!

1. The first one is a trivet - ceramic with pebbles inlaid. Again, I found this on the 'take me' shelf where someone had discarded it. I liked it. It works for me.

2. This is how I use it on my counter.

3. The next one is a pretty black container with a rubber insert and metal latch that I use for fresh ground coffee next to my coffee pot.

4. The next one is a black container that I inserted in that decorative metal petal holder and use it to store my kitchen utensils. I purchased these at Goodwill ... separately ... and blended them together to make a kitchen 'bouquet' that I keep near my stove. Pretty cool, huh? This is sort of/kind of repurposed, if you will.

5. The last item was purchased at a flea market. It's just a pretty covered dish that I use for loose coins. I think it's cloisonné?? Enamel? It's heavy.

This 'stuff' is fun for me, but everything has to have a function.

I took my recyclables down to the 'garbage room' tonight and found this watering can on the 'take me' shelf. I find it rather unique and fell in love with it, so I snatched it up and lugged it up to my apartment thinking there's hope of restoration in it.

I think it's made of tin, but I'm not absolutely sure. I don't know what else it could be. There are only traces of the once shiny, silver coating it wore when it was in its glory, but I think that is easily treated and restored. The raised roses on either side are either pounded or molded. I'm not sure of that, either. I think I'd like to rub them to bring out the base color of the metal rather than spray them shiny or antique silver. I hope you can see what I mean.

I have a weakness for this kind of thing ... something attractive and yet functional. Tell me what you think. Fact is, I've been looking for a pretty watering can that I can leave set out and not have to deal with that ugly green plastic thing I have on my patio deck.
