Blogs are pretty boring these days what with Leaf and DanDee occupying/competing for front page space. It lasts only until Liszt comes about with something sensational to grab up the hits. It's quite amusing to observe. ( I always say, I don't have a degree in psychology for nothing, though not ENUF to hang a shingle.)

Liszt's posts are always and forever attacks on intelligence but stated in pretentious terms that send the rest of us to a thesaurus. There are those here who can use two syllable words and get their points across in human terms far better. SFF is not exactly an intelligence test ... nor should it be under its guise of FRIENDFINDER.

I have a feeling, the more he drinks, the more his ego-infested, self-importance is fed. I find it rather sad, really.

Both he and his wife are in desperate need of attention. WHERE ELSE, But SFF, would they be granted an audience?? Thus, we are called upon to be tolerant.

Trump has made a decision on Afghanistan .... to be announced

As headlines hit the media, hear this:

"Erik Prince's Plan to Privatize the War in Afghanistan

President Trump is meeting [now past tense] with his aides on Friday at Camp David—and some unorthodox ideas are on the table."

I have a sneaking hunch Trump will accept Blackwater founder, Erick Prince's proposal to name him Viceroy of a 'private war' and give him the go-ahead to use his paid mercenaries and private contractors.

Is this the direction wars will go under The New World Order? If so, war is likely to become a money grubbing proposition to private investors. It's hard to conceive of, but I put nothing past Trump.

Jim and I took a shot jaunt over to Wisconsin Dells yesterday and took a horse drawn carriage ride through The Lost Canyon, just one of the many featured sites in the Dells, Wisconsin's biggest tourist trap. This is a shot of one section of the canyon walls that bears a figure of an eagle embedded in the sand stone. Can you make it out? Its wings are out-stretched, and its beak is pretty easy to discern.. The second photo is a shot of the work horses.

My lovely carnations are now over two weeks old and still flourish. By now, all the buds have blossomed.

Have you read any good ones lately? I've gotten some chuckles out of some I found advertised in a catalog just yesterday. I'll just share a few of them that I find are right on.

Remember back when
Sarah Palin was the
craziest person in politics?
GOOG TIMES

AUTO CORRECT HAS
BECOME MY WORST
ENEMA

Can we just admit
we may have taken this
'anyone can grow up to be President'
thing just a bit too far?

I CAN'T BELIEVE
HOW OLD
PEOPLE MY AGE ARE!

... I buy my own. When I buy my own, I pick carnations with lots of buds because they outlast any other fresh flower and because I think they're beautiful. I clip the lower stems on a slant, change the water regularly and add flower fresh each time I change water. These pretties will 'show' for me a full two weeks. It's hard to beat that.

With a quick peek at the topics of the blogs appearing on the main page at the moment, I see that 17 out of 20 are centered on POLITICS .... each adding insult to injury, most throwing punches and adding to 'the great divide'!

My last comment on my earlier blog about old sayings prevalent in our childhoods, I stated:

Geeeeeeeeeeeeesch! I thought there would be more participation than this ... this, a kind of a fun activity. Guess everyone is more focused on the chaos in the WH shakeups. Talk about Big Brother in our lives every waking minute!!

I SERIOUSLY worry about the infiltration of BIG BROTHER when a seniorfriendfinder site is usurped like this, let alone FB, Twitter and every other form of social media!! It's downright scary. We are in the throes of one hellava brain washing with people being swept with the tide and appearing almost unconscious of it.

What do we do? Go down with the masses?

When we older 'kids' were young'uns, there were some colorful expressions applied to us by our folks. Maisie brought one forward today that I hadn't thought of in a long, long time, but it was definitely wrested from my memory bank at the moment. That attention getting directive was, "Quit your crying, or I'll give you something to cry about." I had to chuckle to myself cause I'd heard that more than once coming up!

I've been pondering some of the old tags that were prevalent in my day. I'm still searching my recollect. Maybe you can help!

One I can recall right off is my mother addressing me with, "Why, you little fart blossom, you" when I might have been on the brink of being saucy or naughty. Are any of you familiar with that one?

I'm curious to know what YOUR experience has been.

This is about all I can 'grow' anymore - on a shaded balcony - all silk flowers that require no fuss and create no muss. I just hauled these over from my old dwelling to my new apartment and placed them on a round patio table. They never once talked back to me about abuse. They didn't even scream when I 'transplanted' them.
