My daughter Randi was home on Leave from the Navy. It’s been over 9 months since we have seen her. We made the most of her time visiting home. We shopped, ate at her favorite restaurants and watched movies. I’m sure it was a relaxing time for her and a chance to recharge her batteries before going out to sea for the next 7 months.
A bitter-sweet feeling taking her to the airport and seeing her off once again. My parents went through it, so, now, I get the joy/pain of that whole process. She has her head on straight and I trust her to do well, be safe and succeed in her work on board the USS Makin Island.
Thinking about the movies we watched. The Addams Family and it’s sequel were very entertaining. The producers and writers did really well on those. The cast was perfect and funny. It’s one of the few times Hollywood gets a TV to Movie formula spot on. The other TV series to big screen that also was spot on was the Brady Bunch movies. They combined original content and some new ideas and made an enjoyable movie. That doesn’t happen too often. It’s more miss than hit.
Well, now we continue on with our lives and go about our routines. That’s why I’m writing this blog. I ‘m on my last day of vacation and need to get back into my groove.
The weather here in Northern Ky. is finally changing into the cold season. We can’t complain to much. We have had a great run of warm and dry fall season.
Is 46 too old to be looking for another job? I am lucky enough to be in a job with great security, but, I have hit a crossroad in my life and I’m wanting to get into something else.
Nov.13 2011, Damn, I started this blog last month. I figured I should finish it and post. Almost a month has gone by and my mind is on different things. I’m not so stressed on my route like I was. I’m still not looking forward to “Peak” and working 6 days a week with 10 12 hrs each day. The paychecks will be nice. I guess I should count my blessings there.
The political landscape is still the same, throw in some faux sex harassment charges and the Republican primary is still going on. I’m wishing 2 people would say Bye-Bye. Rick Santorum and John Huntsman. That would leave more time for the other wanna be candidates.
I had to make a trip to the gas station this morning. Why are we still paying well over 3 bucks a gallon? I can tell you one reason. BHO told everyone during his run for POTUS, this would happen if he got elected. He also said if those who want to continue to produce Coal and Natural gas, your industry will have to be hit with a higher cost of operations. Really, I dont know why people are surprised for the inflation and high food and energy prices. The 53% who put this guy in office ( along with Dead people, Sports names, Cartoon characters and of course, ACORN) you were warned and you chose not to listen.
To be honest it isn’t all BHO’s fault. There are speculators and OPEC with their meddling hands in the price gouging. Seems if we use whats in the US of A, prices should go and stay down. Hey, lets build a pipeline from Canada to supply our refineries here and watch Unemployment and energy prices drop. What? We have a plan and are/were doing that?
BHO announced his decision to delay his decision to allow the pipeline in untill AFTER the 2012 election. There he goes again, voting Present. Seems he had a long history of doing that while in the State and Federal Senate seat. Way to kick that can down the road!
Getting back to the Republican Primary. I’ll take all of them over the “Anointed One” any day of the week,month and year.
Why? Because EVERY damn one of them would put AMERICA first, rely on OUR energy resources and do whats best for the people, not the Party. If you disagree with me on that last statement, Email me and if you have 30 minutes, I’ll school ya.
