February made me shiver…

Does anyone else remember that song?

One bright spot was a parody of that song, bashing Trump.  I’ll paste the link from YouTube, hoping you can watch it.  It’s worth watching!

Remember that refrain:  Vote for anyone but this guy

This has been a very long February, and still a week to go.


Depression over the Democratic debates and primaries… I will vote for Blue no matter who, but I am seriously worried that Bernie Sanders  (a) will be the candidate , and be beaten by Trump  or  (b) will not be the candidate, and his supporters will not vote, thus increasing the odds that Trump will win a second term.

I wish I could stop thinking about this, but I can’t.  It wakes me up in the middle of the night.

I did have a lovely time last evening, though, visiting friends and getting kisses from their young and beautiful Irish setter:

  1. Very rarely is there a 1-term prez… I’ve begun to pray for Trump & Co. for conversion of heart. (It is helping mine, at least!) If we get stuck with him, maybe he will settle his hash down, and maybe all in Congress learned that they (and we!) actually believe in this country, and won’t let him continue to dismantle it. If nothing else, it is 4 more that he will be kept out of beauty pageant dressing rooms.
