Busy as a . . . .


I've been busy as a one-armed wallpaper hanger, as a one-legged man in an ass kicking contest, as a cat in a room full of rocking chairs, as a (fill-in-the-blank). April/May is one crazy mofo season.

So I'll just offer up the swill floating through my mind:

1. Every single Spring I am flat-out stunned by the beauty of blooming trees, leaves, daffodils, tulips, lilacs, etc. Especially the lilacs. I don't think I will ever take those visions for granted.

2. Thanks fer nothin T-Paw. Your extreme budget cuts mean our city can't offer cheaper pool passes to low-income families this year. So poor kids not only endure the bitter taste of poverty, now they can't even cool off in a tax-payer funded municipal swimming pool. A pool that their parents' tax dollars helped build, and keep staffed and maintained. Way to go you greedy rich Republican snob. Socialism for the rich, capitalism for the poor. Is there an adult in the state house I can talk to???

3. My new lower-back-pain-hindered exercise routine is to walk at a moderate pace with my belly tightened, my buttocks clenched, and my thigh muscles taut. It looks like a very seriously cranky person taking a leisure walk.

4. The verbal bashing of the MOTHER by the CHILDREN stops right here right now. I am taking no prisoners.

5. I hope every single person who took a bonus from bail-out money steps in a pothole and twists their ankle. Or gets their Jaguar keyed.

6. Mexico should invade Arizona and establish martial law: all gringos in their homes after 9pm and all of them must carry papers at all times.

7. MAN those blooming trees smell good!! And the frogs singing in the backyard marsh are amazing.

8. Ink cartridges from "Cartridge World" are incredibly cheap because there is NO INK IN THEM!

9. Imagine if the teabaggers where black or Latino.

10. Two fun and dirt cheap vacations coming up this summer!! WHOOT!

Socialism for the rich, capitalism for the poor.

That's their motto and I say let's stick them with it every chance we get!

I am with Liberality, that should be their motto.

I want to hear about your vacations. I'd like to live vicariously through you, please.

And amen to everything else you said.

T-Paw, don't tax my rich friends, so the poor and the sick can continue to be poor and sick. Under T-Paw, almost three dozen nursing homes in the state have had to close, most before the current economic downturn. And now the economy is coming home to roost with tax income to the state lower than usual...so how many more nursing homes will close, how many people will lose their jobs, and how many will have to put their loved ones in homes far from home? T-Paw: go AWAY.

The only reason we have to endure T-Paw is cuz Mike Hatch was a dumb-a&&.

I hope he runs for president and gets his butt whooped.

Man, TPaw sounds as dirt dumb as our Georgia Legislature (Republicans). They just cut taxes for the wealthy (I can save BIG money on all that jet fuel I buy!!!) and raised taxes on the poor.

Yeah, socialism for the rich, capitalism for the poor. We're living the dream, baby!

This year, probably because I am out walking with the dog several days out of the week, I have noticed for the first time in years and years, how beautiful the trees are as they begin to change from winter over to spring. The blossoms here -apple, crabapple, lilacs and other flowers that have begun to bloom here have been stunning, absolutely stunning. I wonder how I ever missed them for so many years before. But one thing I have missed this year and that's the spring peepers! Normally, where I live, I can hear them chirping away in the evening but so far this year, I have no heard a one! Kind of lonely not to hear them herald spring, ya know!
