After three days of feeling lousy, and one day at about 50% lousy, I'm more-or-less myself today.
Well, myself plus another dose or two of the cold and flu meds which seemed to have the greatest effect on the symptoms.
So ... has anything happened out there whilst I was away?
Yesterday was too warm (for us), hovering near 40 degrees all day. But the ground is frozen, the snow is deep, and the net effect was that snow piles shrank some, but are a long way from gone. The highway is clear, side roads are clearing, and residential streets are still a mess. Since they hadn't been plowed well to begin with, most are down to a lane and a half. Makes those blind corners a bit more exciting, don'tcha know.
But I digress.
Mostly, today, I'm encouraged by President Trump's pick for the Supreme Court. Judge Gosuch is an outstanding jurist, and a strict constructionist when it comes to Constitutional issues. I like everything I've read about him, so far.
I'm also enjoying the sights and sounds of liberal heads exploding on the two coasts. It's fun to watch. :)
I've avoided looking for too long at the local paper's website, because the headlines they choose are all too predictable. It's a McClatchy rag, so you already know what they publish, and how they phrase the stories.
In the words of President Lyndon B. Johnson (not someone I often quote or even consider):
If one morning I walked on top of the water across the Potomac River, the headline that afternoon would read: 'President Can't Swim.'Of course, that was back in a time when reporting was more even-handed. The furor which attended President Nixon's peccadilloes a decade later destroyed that era forever. Thanks, Dick.
But I digress. Again.
The point I originally intended to make is long-since gone from my thought processes, this morning. I'm sure there was one.
Or maybe not.
But I'm feeling better, and it's Hump Day. All y'all have a good day out there, and thanks for stopping by.
