So I sit. 

Filed under: News — Scottie @ 14:49

We are often told how our actions can have huge consequences for others. As these powerful words demonstrate it is also the actions we don’t take that can hurt others so badly. I live in an retirement mobile home and I have known of older people who have moved back to where their families were from because they did not drive anymore and needed to have people to take them places. They simply couldn’t trust that when they needed it rides would be there. I know that in my area one of the things hospice volunteers do is drive home hospice patients to their appointments. Why must it be that someone needs hospice care before they have a way to get the things they need. I was visiting an elderly lady and she was getting her morning coffee and her milk was bad. But just a little she said as she used it. I stopped her, and asked why she was going to use milk that had passed. She looked at me and replied “because it is all I have”. I went and got her new milk. These words have reminded me to be thankful, I am going to not only walk again someday, I will be able to drive. When I do I hope I remember this post, and think of those around me, and offer to help. The old saying do unto others as you would have them do unto you. I will ask if they need anything or if they have an appointment, because some day if I am lucky I will be elderly and I will not be able to drive, and I don’t want to have to use spoiled milk. Hugs

NOT MY SECRET...overcoming the shame of sexual abuse

So here I sit in a waiting room. My daughter had a 2:30 Doctor’s appointment. I have therapy at 3:00. My husband is our only driver. So I am sitting here for 45 minutes in the waiting room until my 50 minute therapy appointment. My daughter’s Doctor appointment will most likely be 3 hours. So I plan on driving my scooter through this neighborhood behind my therapist’s office and to some restaurants to get something to eat so I don’t have to spend a total of 3 hours here in this therapy office. I’ve never just driven my motorized scooter out and about other than my neighborhood. I will take pictures along the way. I brought a towel, garbage bags to cover my scooter, a jacket, an umbrella, water, protein bar. All the things one must think of when out alone in a motorized scooter for 3 hours.I stayed up…

Bone doctor

Filed under: News — Scottie @ 09:47

I am off to the bone doctor in a few minutes.   Yesterday I got my staples out.  While normally a person can walk and put weight on a new hip the day after surgery.   For me it is not so simple.  I have waited two weeks to see if I can put weight on my new hip system.   I will be able to do much more physical therapy once I can use the hip some.   OK talk later.  Hugs

Think on this. It is NOT ok just because their prophet did it. Fight this abuse. Hugs

The kiss of Mooch

Filed under: News — Scottie @ 20:14

This post expresses some ideas I have been wondering about. I still do not get why the average person struggling to get by thinks they have anything in common with tRump. When interviewed they claim that tRump will take care of them. Why do they think he cares anything at all about them? He has proven he is only for the most wealthy, he admires the most wealthy and wants to be surrounded by only the wealthy. His ego alone wouldn’t let him have anything to do with or care for the “little people” as Hemsley called the average worker. Hugs

Ends and Beginnings

Anthony Scaramucci“A great day at the White House!” – Donald Trump tweet 7-31-17

Well the new White House communications director Anthony “The Mooch” Scaramucci delivered his last kiss Friday after only eleven days on the job and oh what a kiss he sent. His hire forced the resignation of press secretary Sean Spicer and chief of staff Reince Priebus. You Trumpets seem to like numbers how about these digits, 1 + -2 + -1 = 11 days.

Let’s be honest Donald Trump has zip, zero in-common with Mr. and Mrs. Joe Deplorable from Ames, Iowa but they still elected him. They overlooked the expensive suits, fake tan, the dead animal on top of his head, the greed, the ego, the wives, the etc. and bought the bullshit and the bluster. And they are still buying it.

And if Mr. and Mrs. Deplorable have nothing in-common with “The Donald” what could they…

Sexual & Gender Ambiguity: My Once Gross Ignorance

Filed under: News — Scottie @ 12:21

Some interesting thoughts on intersex and gender. The post got me thinking if gender and sexual orientation need be fixed for an entire life, or if they are more fluid, shifting as we age of our internal needs change? For example if a person’s body chemistry changes drastically and after 30 or 40 years of feeling one way, begin to develop other feelings, wouldn’t that show a person has shifted internally. To be clear I am not saying a person is choosing their gender or sexual orientation, I simply see people change over the years. The body changes, the mind changes, understanding changes. Can not a person’s sexual needs and what gender they are change also? Hugs

Professor Taboo

In my archaic way of thinking, or perhaps as my conservative culture taught me, I thought that a boy was a boy not only by how similar he acted among me and other boys, but also because of his genitalia.  And a girl was a girl not only by how similar she acted among other girls, but because of her genitalia as well.  It all seemed pretty obvious and quite simple, so I thought for more than 30 years.

A few years ago my mother informed me of the death of a dear family friend and halfway-house mother to my sister of addiction and innumerable relapses.  She had been there for my mom and other women countless times as my sister fought her disease on the losing end.  This woman had been a pillar of hope and therapy in the community for battered, abused women, and many typically in chemical…

I love this. It moved me to think of some of the stereotypes I assume when say certain words. This is a grand post. Hugs

The sound and fury of the Tweeter-in-Chief

Filed under: News — Scottie @ 14:22

I think he likes to tweet because in his mind no one is as smart as he is, no is as well liked as he is, no one dares not read his pronouncements in awe of what he will tweet next. As no one can argue with him, he will shut off any one who doesn’t reply how great he is from responding to him. He is a man in charge of the device and king of that make believe world. Hugs

The president does not hold press conferences to push his agenda. He does not preside over town halls, nor does he explain policy from the podium. He does not speak to his Attorney General when he is displeased.

He tweets.

Waking up to the president’s Twitter feed brings William Faulkner’s The Sound and the Fury to mind. Not the book, mind you, but that famous line from Shakespeare’s Macbeth from which the title derives: “a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”

Because what, if anything, do a president’s tweets signify?

In a 60 Minutes interview on healthcare, the president said, “I am going to take care of everybody … Everybody’s going to be taken care of much better than…
