It Can Be Like That

The Night Of The 4th of July – It Can Be Like That For Some Of Us

Yes! Especially this year, I want Americans to really celebrate the 4th of July. Yes again! I want us all to raise a joyful and raucous noise unto the Heavens. But maybe remember that some of us don’t “respond well” to those fireworks throughout the night, and we really don’t respond well to those firearm discharges randomly interspersed with them.

Yeah, I know. It’s 2020 and our communities have broken down to the point where most of us don’t know enough about our neighbors to know whether one or more of them might be veterans with PTSD. Still, think about it.

And yes, I’ll likely be spending tonight in a separate bedroom from my wives with my two dogs, one of which has PTSD worse than mine. We’ve got our gear together – weighted blankets, her thunder shirt, and my noise-canceling headphones – and our other dog is a damn fine comfort.

Celebrate Independence Day!

Celebrate Independence Day!

This year, with the crazed hate of the Left, the Blacks’ rioting and looting, and the attacks upon the fabric of our nation’s proud history, celebrate Independence Day!

Revel in the beauty of America and her history. Show our domestic enemies that Americans will not be cowed by their actions.

Set An Extra Place

Set an extra place at the table this memorial day

Well, it’s Memorial Day once, though most people seem to confuse it with Veterans Day these days.

So please, do enjoy your BBQ – I will – because it’s the right thing to do. It’s good to celebrate the life, freedom, and prosperity that those rough men and women died to protect.

But maybe, just maybe, you might want to set an extra place at the table for their shades. They did, after all, pay for that fine meal.

That’s all. Just a thought that maybe you might want to spare a thought and a little table space for our fallen soldiers and the ones they left behind.

Easter In 2020 …

Easter In 2020 Feels A Bit Like That
Easter In 2020 Feels A Bit Like That

Oh yeah! Easter in 2020 ain’t like ones in the past. It feels a lot more like getting up close and personal with a facehugger. Worse, I’m not sure that 6ft is enough distancing to avoid their initial leap.

In Time For Easter 2020

In Time For Easter 2020

Just in time for Easter 2020, chocolatiers around the world are making Easter Bunny confections wearing protective face masks. πŸ˜†

I love it! Nothing says hope more than some good, old-fashion thumbing your nose at whatever’s scaring you.
