Sitting at emerg again. Two weeks ago it was my son with his foot. Now it's my wife's turn. She stepped down off a deck last night and rolled her ankle. This morning she could barely put pressure on it.

Such a shame it came to that. It is just plain not right. If I owned any guns, which I do not since that tragic boating capsizing accident on Lake Champlain in 1999, I would rot in hell before I ever turned them over to the liberals.

Needless to say, liberal family members keep their distance around me anyway. Just the way I like it.

It's a crying shame that a man is forced to do that.

The very first handgun that I bought when I came to the States was a S&W 686 in .357. I still have it (sort of) and it's still one of my favorites. My wife claimed it as "hers" a few years back but I still have visiting and cleaning rights.

I honestly don't know what I'd do if the Government issued a decree to hand in all handguns. Well, that's not quite right, I do know. I'd tell them to sod off. I think that I'd be loading them up, not cutting them up.

Went and visited my M-I-L on Mother's Day and spent some time with her. Now that I'm home I'm going to try experimenting to see if I can improve the drainage around the house before the rain starts around the middle of the week.

Mama's day dinner out at Applebee's.
This time with Ty, Ali and the girls.
I got this Cajun pork chop with apple chutney and maple butter and 2 good veggie sides.
The chop was half the size of the one shown on the menu.
I have lots of pictures to share soon.

I put Trump to shame yesterday, I had four scoops of ice cream.

I may do the same today.

Didn't do a whole lot of anything except for taking a long walk and then making shrimp salad lettuce cups.

Did some packing for camp this weekend. Installed a new seat in the boat. Busy evening. The lovely missus took two of the kids to soccer while I brought the other three to scouts. They were touring a coast guard ship this evening.

Been down to North Carolina for Melen's college graduation. Got home late last evening.

Today I have to return the rental (Ford Expedition) that I picked up down there for a 1 way rental to haul Melen's belongings back home.

I have to go pick up Walter from the dog jail.

Mid-morning we have a replacement blind being delivered for our living room. The original is not working properly, so the company made a replacement and that is being delivered today. The installer will remove & replace so I don't have to do that.

Probably do a bit of yelling (later today) at Melen to start sorting through her stuff, much of which is in plies in the foyer of our home. Much of which is in piles in our spare bedroom. Much of which is in stacks of tote bins in our garage. HOW DO KIDS ACCUMULATE SO MUCH STUFF while they are in college???

Been busy, mostly yakking on other forums and causing a ruckus for my now discontent with Trump.
Won't go there here because this forum isn't about politics for me and never was really.

Aside from that, had a very busy day this afternoon running about shopping etc.
He who calls me Aunt Lollie made us dinner tonight, along with one of his friends.
Oven ribs wrapped in foil and cooked at 275 'til they fell off the bone. then brushed with Heinz Kansas City Sweet and Smoky sauce.
He also cooked some pasta, then made a cold salad ahead of time with cuke, onion and ranch dressing.

Thank you Mike and Cruz!

Yesterday I took the cat to the vet to have him neutered.
He is a lot less vocal (at night, especially) and always wanting to go outside now.
He is content to sit beside me now for hours.

Today I worked. What else?
Everything is good here.
