Cheapskate

That is me.


Some of the motels we stayed in on vacation had all white bedding with a thin sheetlike spread over the top.  I liked the white because I imagined bleach was added to the wash to maintain the white.  Finicky sister has ruined a many of my motel stays with her advice not to touch the bedspreads in motels because the spreads are never washed.  If it is white, it has to be washed more often or it will not be white long.  Last month I bought new good white sheets and cases for my bed.  Yesterday at the junk store in BRV I spied this white feather filled comforter at a very reasonable price. I would not call it down filled as it is not soft, but it is filled with natural feathers and not syntactic stuff.  The manufacturing tag said Holiday Inn Expressions.  I hope the Pole lease do not came looking for a receiver of stolen goods. 

My right knee that I hurt at the end of June has been worse over the last 3 weeks or so.  I went to the knee dr at Harrison Wednesday.  He gave me a shot in the knee.  He said it should start feeling better in about 3 days [that''s today].  I think it is somewhat better.  If it is not better after a week, I am going back.  I am tired of it hurting.  

Greg took the kids and the neighbor's 3rd grade stepdaughter to the truck pulls at the fair tonight.  Robert will love the trucks and the girls will have fun together.

Tomorrow is Church day.  Wednesday they were whining wanting the Wednesday kids to come on Sunday.  I said I would consider it.  I like going by myself on Sunday.  I think I will just do it my way at least one more time.

Winnie, I got your note.  Sorry to hear the sad news.

Surprise...

When I transferred my land line phone number to a cell phone, I did not contact the land line phone company.  My thinking was when they turned off my dial tone, there was nothing left for them to  bill me for.  Surprise, today I got my regular email from them saying my statement was ready.  I read this from my phone at work, but waited until  I got home to login on the web and see what was up.  I was thinking I would have to call and argue with them for an hour.  Sure enough, when I logged in there was a statement for 08/22/16.  But, Surprise, it said amount due $00000.  I am so disappointed I do not get to call the phone company and yell at them.

Things are great here.  The kids are liking school and are playing outside more after school.  Hannah thinks up things for them to play and gives Robert his orders.  Sometimes they play cars and trucks, but yesterday, they played Rodeo.



I think Helen's kids are supposed to get their new house today.  I hope so. She said yesterday she was having to pee in the ocean.

What do you have to loose...

If Trump is elected?  Freedom.

Freedom to speak.
Freedom of the press.
Freedom to vote.
Freedom to descent.
Freedom  of and from religion.
Freedom to marry.
Freedom of assembly.
Freedom to petition.
Freedom  to protest the government.

Trump and other republicans have all voiced support for and supported laws intended to limit these rights.  The only right they support completely is the right to carry a gun whenever and wherever one pleases and use it to kill other people.  Especially if those others look, speak, act or hold beliefs  that are not the same as your own looks, actions, or beliefs.

I have often said, the world would be a much better place if everyone was just like me. To me this is a joke.To some, this is the core of their belief.

Stay Tuned

Trump has his first security briefing today.  In a few days we will all know what he was told, or some version thereof.

Tonight is princess night at Church,  All the little girls around Hannah's age are going to Sister Joyce's for a meal and manners.  She is supposed to ware a dress.  Usually we ware shorts on Wednesday night during the summer.  She was all excited about it this week end.  Tonight, not so much.  I may have to make her ware a dress.

School was good  today, according to both kids.  They come home in really good spirits.  Dog is so excited to see them and vice versa.

I am taking chicken tonight.  I wasn't going to, but they were finishing a cook-off just before go home time, so I packed up some for the Church kids.
