A Lesson for EVERYONE

Peace among protest: A Portland police officer noticed a 12-year-old boy holding a sign that read "Free Hugs" during a Ferguson demonstration in Oregon. The officer started talking to the boy about the demonstration, school and life. When they were done talking, the officer asked if he was going to get a hug.

The boy teared up — and obliged. 

Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and the like--you could all take a lesson from this young man.

Julie Bosman and Campbell Robertson, deserve to lose their careers over what they did.   If ANYTHING happens to Darren Wilson or his family, these two need to be prosecuted fully!  Officer Wilson has been found to have acted properly--so what are these two pieces of shit allowed to act like judge and jury and publish his address, knowing full well he is a target?  Is this RESPONSIBLE JOURNALISM, or an act of terrorism and personal vendetta???

BOYCOTT the paper they work for, the New York Times.  Or wrote to them and tell then this is unacceptable!

Relax! You don't HAVE to do "Christmas"!

Well, not "Christmas" as the retailers would like!  Many years ago, our family decided enough is enough.  There is very little we need, and if we DO need it, we go get it--so why deal with the crowds, the idiots, the parking lot brawls?  Christmas has now become what it was MEANT to be--Remembering Jesus, spending time with our family.  Our grandson, of course, gets gifts--he is still a child.  The rest of us know that the true gifts you give are your time and love.

When you back out of all the craziness, you are able to be more objective.  Seeing reports where people are trampling each other and fighting to buy something literally makes me ill.  Let's see--YESTERDAY we were all thankful for what we have, and today we are beating other people up to get more???   I am so proud of my family not partaking in this lovely holiday custom.

The retailers don't CARE if you have a nice Christmas, they don't care if you even make it home with everything you bought--they just want your money.  Do yourself a favor, stop listening to them, stop looking at ads, and take a deep breath.  Relax.  Bake some cookies for when your family comes over.  You will be amazed at how good you feel!

Brown family "profoundly disappointed that the killer of our child will not face the consequence of his actions."

You have that wrong--your "child" (who was an adult) faced the consequences of his OWN actions.   Evidence does not lie, people do.  

So now we are left to ponder the fact that the President of the United States sent representatives to the funeral of a man who attempted to kill a cop.

Nice addition to your already sparkling legacy, Obama.

Birds and Squirrels

Watching the birds and squirrels outside my dining room windows today, I had to laugh at how extremely fat they all are!!  Most of the squirrels actually have fat rolls around their legs and butts, and they waddle rather than run!  The birds are abnormally round too, I don't know how some of them can get off the ground.  This could be in response to our colder than normal winter last year, or maybe they are just hitting up every bird feeder in the city.

Then I wondered how long it will be until the government steps in and shames us for having fat birds and squirrels (like all of us with fat cats and dogs).  I can see it now--low calorie bird food, with recommended daily allowances.

Almost Done!

I have been a bit under the weather for the past week, but now I am back to work on Evie's hooked portrait.  I should finish it up tomorrow, and then I need a day to do the edge finishing before I can hang it.  Then a break to do final finishing on my Christmas gifts, before I start a new hooking.
