Are You Kidding Me?

The stupidity of life in Texas just doesn’t quit – today, Governor Abbott declared the state 100% open, at 100% capacity, and ended the mask mandate. Are you kidding me? Here’s a news story reporting the details of this latest shit show:


Here’s hoping that people still do the right thing, wearing masks and keeping their distance….but, what worries me is that so many people in this damn state voted for Ted Cruz, thus certifying that they aren’t necessarily playing with a full deck.

Wherever you are, I hope you’re staying safe – keep your masks on, friends, and social distance like a mo’fo. All of us have to work together if we are going to get through this….regardless of what stupid ideas Governor Abbott has. Bloody reckless.



The Way

Read this in the New York Times Modern Love feature Tiny Love Stories, and it busted me right open:

After Hazel and I got married at the ages of 20 and 21, I questioned our judgment in choosing to marry so young. When we had a baby soon after, I wondered how I could possibly support a family. In our mid-40s, I thought we were too young to become grandparents, though our grandchildren are lovely. Then when Hazel passed away at 50 from the coronavirus, I finally realized why we got married so young: We weren’t meant to grow old together. And I am grateful for our time. — Sean Luke Dado

So beautiful. Sending love and hugs to Sean. ♥️
