This is probably the oldest picture I have of family. Actually, it precedes , so it's well over 80 yrs . My eldest sister Shirley stands in front of Grandma Annie. My mother is holding my sister Patricia, the next in line. I came next so, who knows? My mother could have been pregnant again - with ME - by this time. There are only a bit over between and Pat.

I think this is the only time I ever saw my Granddad wearing a smile. I only remember him as an curmudgeon who had no patience with the little ones and would scat them outdoors guard his peace and quiet.

The rest are my aunties, all the girls on my mother's side. I've been told there's another photo somewhere of Grandma and Grandpa with the boys in the family, my uncles, but I've never seen it. There isn't one of them who remains alive.

One of the things I'm reminded of when I look at this photo is that I never once saw any of my aunts, my mother or my grandma in pants; they always wore dresses and many of them were hand sewn from flowered flour sacks. Aprons were also common in the day.

My, my ... how things have changed. I can't ever remember wearing an 'everyday' dress. They're only reserved for very special occasions.

This is me and Jim very early on in our relationship. I think this goes back to 2006, shortly after we started dating. I dragged him along to a small SFF meet and greet at Wisconsin Dells, WI.

Five surgeons from big cities were discussing makes the best patient operate on.

From New York, the first surgeon submits, "I like see accountants on my operating table. When you open them up, everything inside is numbered."

The second surgeon, from Chicago, responds, "You should try electricians! Everything inside of them is color coded."

The third surgeon, from Dallas, says, "Oh, no ... I think librarians are the best. Everything inside of them is in alphabetical order."

The fourth surgeon, from Los Angeles, chimes in: "You know what? I prefer construction workers. Those guys always understand when they have a few parts left over."

The fifth surgeon, from Washington DC , shut them all up when he announced: "You're all wrong! Politicians are the easiest to operate on. are no guts, no heart, no balls, no brains and no spine. Plus, the head and the azz are interchangeable."

Trump vs. battleground states

Should I believe Wisconsin will be in a 'better place' after Trump's unwelcomed visit Kenosha, WI, today? Do you believe he could conceivably have a 'calming' effect?

IMO, Trump is plucking off the the 'blue' states, one by one. His visits might be coming to YOU! He has long declared war against democratic leaning states from the get go, even as he addresses 'law and order'. He obviously wants a ONE party system, an authoritarian system, with HIM in the lead, HIM, knowing more than anyone 'in the history' of the modern world.
Yes, Trump will have a healing effect.
No, Trump will further fuel the flames of discontent.

What's his purpose?

I personally think he goes where he's not wanted stoke the flames of unrest! His very presence is inflammatory, wherever he goes! His mission is to create even greater divisiveness. PERIOD!

Both Gov Evers of Wisconsin and the Mayor of Portland, Oregon, have pleaded with him to stay away and permit them to do their jobs using their own resourcefulness. Rather, Trump deliberately chooses to override them and make his presence felt in a most forceful way, asserting his power over them.
