I shall be hitting the sack soon; 10:20 PM here now. listener--the uppers of your boots look like fabric in the photo, but I expected they must actually be waterproof. Here's hoping you get you boots first and your blizzard second. Susan--I certainly agree that high heels would seem inappropriate for shoveling snow! One of my co-workers has a really cute pair of Wellington boots, pinkish-purple with reflectors on the back. When I admired them she said they were really children's boots--she has very small feet for an adult.TTFNP.S.: Gotta have something political here... Paul Krugman on Trump's trade war [Click]
Erm, I'm terribly confused. Listener, didn't I reschedule your snow angels post for noon EST today? I don't remember changing the date... If so, I'm terribly sorry. Must have been a whole lot more tired and muzzy than I thought.
This was hardly news to those who had eyes to see, but if it should come to the attention of the commentariat (and the institutional Democratic Party) it might do some good:2016: A Year Defined by America’s Diverging Economies [Click] Just as income inequality has become a fixture in many Americans’ understanding of the country, so too must accelerating regional divides.For me, this is the money quote: “Government policies that had made the country more equal across regions—among them antitrust protections—were forgotten or rolled back in the late 20th century. And fortunes diverged.” Encouraging competition and discouraging monopoly were economic hallmarks of The New Deal.—Alan
Building things up takes a lot more time and effort than destroying them...Alan
I recall complaining that the antitrust boys weren't doing their job way back in the mid '80s. Things have only gone from bad to worse since then. I guess those of us who want to see a return to the New Deal or a revamped version are doomed to disappointment.
No worries, Cat!! I don't know how it transpired, but it's no problem. You definitely have the reins until the end of January, unless you prefer otherwise. Keep me posted. XOXOXOX
My day began with being asked to meet 3 year old VT*Grandson and family at the ER, to tend his little sister, as he had been injured...! Metal wind chimes had blown out of their tree and gotten covered with snow. VT*Grandson fell in the yard and got poked in the eye with them! It was very scary, as he was bleeding from eye and nose. So I am very grateful to be able to tell you it was "just" a corneal abrasion and he will be fine. =Whew!= VT*Granddaughter was was such a little joy in the waiting room. She was greeting people as they came in and creating lots of smiles. She brought stuffed bear Spencer T. Bear over to an elderly woman who was waiting worriedly and made her smile. At one point, a man came in dressed in a navy blue sweatsuit with gray hair, not white, but otherwise looking just like Santa Claus. Everly brightened when she saw him and said what I think was "Santa!" He didn't catch it, but it was pretty cute. I later heard that when they first arrived she though the guy with the white beard (and tattoos and skullcap) was Santa, and made her family giggle. I want to see the world the way she does...always.The little guy gave his Mama a kiss goodnight tonight and whispered, "Sweet dreams, Mama." All's well that ends like that!
PS: VT*Granddaughter is 15 months old. An older gentleman was waiting and asked about her. He was melted by her sweetness. Only after about 15 min of her interacting with him (on and off) did I see him called in for his turn. HE was the patient! I was so glad we could help him wait to be seen!
Whew! indeed! Glad all ended well.
Yipes! That is scary! So glad it wasn't as bad as it first sounded.
What Bill and Susan said!Alan
Yikes, Listener! Thank God!
