Happy Birthday Mom...

Today is my mother's birthday. She would have been 84. Happy birthday mom. We miss you.

“This country does in fact have a serious deficit problem. But the reality is that the deficit was caused by two wars – unpaid for. It was caused by huge tax breaks for the wealthiest people in this country. It was caused by a recession as a result of the greed, recklessness and illegal behavior on Wall Street. And if those are the causes of the deficit, I will be damned if we’re going to balance the budget on the backs of the elderly, the sick, the children, and the poor. That’s wrong.”

Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) Senate Budget Committee, 11-18-2011

What ever you do...

What ever you do... don't tell Gabriel to get off of the recliner. I'm thinking that if I get on his bad side, he's liable to turn me into a pile of ashes (ha). Hmmm. Yikes.

I was thumbing through some pictures I had loaded onto our computer earlier this year, and came across this shot of Gabriel. Whoa...

I haven't done a thing to it. This is the way it came out of the camera. Kinda funny... kinda creepy ;) Well, in his defense, he is one of the sweetest devil dogs you'll ever find.

Bunnies. The red Halloween critter was lurking close by, and I figured I could shoo it off with some pictures of soft, fluffy rabbits (ha). I think it worked.
This evening the critter will probably scuttle off to the swamp from which it came. More than likely it will crawl out of the slime next Halloween and come for a visit, but until then... bunnies. They have nothing to do with the holidays coming up, but I thought it would be a nice transition. I don't know... it's Wednesday. That seems to be a good enough reason for me. Peace be with you.
