No one is questioning what some of the neighbourhood kids are doing climbing around on the roofs?
Well, the Repugnican Party gained ground after the demise of the Whig Party after all. But who would take the new place to provide a (hopefully) fair two-party system?
Well, he did say he felt like a newlywed again. O<|]:o)
Yup. I’m with you. I don’t get it.
Your third example in your next to the last sentence: guessing you just haven’t known anyone who got it, family or friends. Or even had a family member die from it. That would be the only reason I could think of that you’d lump it in with a belief system and a childhood fantasy.
I have mixed feelings about hitting the like button on this one. It makes me wonder whether or not we would be having a Delta variant of this virus if everyone, and I mean everyone, just got on board with the mandates and vaccinations and waited until it was 100% complete before lifting any restrictions. But we will never know.
Someone once related during all of this that anyone who managed to live through plagues and epidemics past would be appalled at the behaviours of the masses during this pandemic. You did what you were instructed to do to stay alive and hopefully healthy, not scream that someone was “taking away your rights” or that “no one can tell me what to do”. smh
Four kids…three girls and one boy. Two were in track and cross country in High School, one showed interest in band in middle school. Even with that, no hectic schedules ensued. All grown and gone and we have two grandkids out of the lot. My sister waited and had twin boys at 42 and still hasn’t stopped the coordination of the days’ events…play dates, sports events, clubs, visiting college campuses (the boys are entering their senior year this coming fall), etc. I consider myself to be lucky in that respect.
Funny thing was because Stick was looking up, I first read that as stars not stairs.
Time to bring back the ad campaign from the 70’s where the Native American is discovering how trashed humans (and I use that term loosely in some cases) are making the planet. Only this time include the oceans and maybe the effects of global warming, etc.
I’ve seen the local houseless inhabitants of our area push the carts the edge of the painted line, lift them up sideways, take them over the line, and push them on down the road unlocked. The barrier only has a near field transmission to the locking mechanism and the perps have figured out how far that is.
