My general observations, rants even, of the world around us. I consider it therapy. My cardiologist endorses the activity because it keeps my blood pressure manageable. There's no telling what you might find here, so fasten your seatbelt, I'm not everyone's cup of tea. I'll defend my LGBT friends with my 2nd Amendment rights and think we should spend marijuana tax revenue with fiscal restraint. I often write quickly and edit poorly, due to a desire to get thoughts down before I forget them.

Hang Up and Drive!
As I was driving my son to school this morning we came to an intersection with a traffic signal, a car was stopped in our lane of traffic.
The light was green.
The driver was chatting away on her cell phone, completely oblivious to the fact that a whole world existed outside of her vehicle.
I gave a polite “toot” on my horn.
I gave a prolonged, obnoxious blast on my horn.
She woke up, lurched forward, then stopped again.
The light had turned yellow, so obviously she had to stop and wait for a green light.
