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.
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!)
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.
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".
