Random stuff

 A while back I told you all that Rosa and I were immersed in a stressful situation where the odds were in our favor but experience tempered our optimism. It went on for a while and it took a toll on our respective moods. But, ultimately the good news we hoped for came through and the dark cloud hanging over us was whisked away with a cleansing breeze. As such, my enthusiasm for things has returned with a vengeance.

A cute cartoon I found that playfully poked some fun at something very true for Rosa and me. Now that things have calmed, perhaps a little overdue 'worship' might be in order?


And speaking of vengeance, yesterday was "the 5th of November" prompting Rosa to remind me of our annual tradition: the watching of "V For Vendetta". 

It is a story written by the great Alan Moore and adapted for the screen. It is not a terribly old movie nor a new one......but it is a story frighteningly appropriate for our times, complete with political repression and even a pandemic. If you've never seen it, give it a shot.


Last night Rosa also gave me the double treat of a long-awaited "O" while kissing her beautiful feet. (It didn't take long...LOL....but it definitely didn't suck!) 

One of my treats last evening. Delicious!

We also discussed the possibility of a celebratory 'take out' dinner this weekend.....and a very likely return to spanking........which is another long overdue activity. We will see.

Another past view of Rosa's feet with me in the foreground. Will this be us later this weekend? Time will tell.

And then there's politics. I have been quiet here for a long time and any return to voicing my views will have to be undertaken over time. There's just too much to deal with here and now in one paragraph. The only brief comment I will make is directed NOT at something I heard from some leftwing or rightwing pundit working for a commercially motivated or agenda laden news network but the very words coming out of our current president's mouth heard in real time. I listened to Trump's news conference last night in its entirety, not a spin, not a collection of edited sound bytes, but his own rambling words. It was historic. I felt like I was watching an on-air breakdown. In Donald's own oft-used evaluation: "sad".

  1. Glad to hear everything worked out. I haven't seen V for Vendetta, though it seems to be perpetually on my list. I'll try harder to actually make it a priority.

    1. I don't think you'll be disappointed.......and Rosa and myself are not nearly the only folks who watch it kind of ritualistically each November 5th.

  2. Glad to hear things are looking up. I have seen V for Vendetta altho i might have been too ignorant when I saw it to fully understand / appreciate all the themes.

    1. Hey there. Well, if you think you missed something, there's a painless solution: just watch it again. ;-) It has some wonderful stuff.

  3. Glad the dark clouds are gone, both for both your moods AND for the US. I guess I'll still have a few more months of Drumpffeck on YouTube before he once more becomes inconsequential and disappears back into the rat hole he snuck out from. Now for the sycophants who remain in the senate. Best of luck!!

    1. Thanks. As I mentioned, I have quite a bit of political commentary brewing in my head that warrant posts rather than just a brief response.....so stay tuned.
