Too much!

What to write. There's too much out there today. I think I'll tackle it over the weekend.

None of our business

Today families are encouraged to be open and communicate with each other. I like it.

The other day my aunt Monica, dad's sister, calls my mom and mentions how my brother was asking her all these questions about the family lineage on that side of the family. He's taken up a family tree initiative for some reason.

Now my mom and aunt are in their early 70's and basically have no information on anybody who precluded their parents. My mom and I chatted about this and came up with a possible reason why.

It was none of their business. I'm sure many relatives were illegal back in the day and the less people knew the better. Now we know everything about everybody but before the 1920's good luck.

I wonder how much my 100 year old grandma really knew.

Twinkly lights

I love Christmas lights. It's always exciting to see the first lights of the season. Of course it's sad when the lights start coming down house by house, and before you know it the neighborhood is dark.

Now though people put up lights for all the holidays and special days like Valentines Day, St. Patrick's Day, etc. I never see lights for my birthday. That is bothersome. Overall I have no problem with people putting up lights. There's usually a lull between events so it's ok.

Until yesterday. The lady across the street from me, in what seemed like one giant swoop, removed her twinkly Christmas lights and within a blink of eye had put up her Valentines Day lights. C'mon, it's ok to leave the Christmas stuff up a couple more days. I still have Christmas cookies to eat. Poof! The holidays are over.

Thing is this lady will be missing out on inauguration day. She'll be mad when she sees my life sized Obama and Biden moving figurines lighting up the yard with "Hail to the Chief" blaring through the night. I'll show her.

Days dwindle.

Nine more days left of work.

It's like a vacation is coming, which is always exciting, but when will it end?

In an interview on Fox News Sunday, former President George H.W. Bush says he hopes his son Jeb runs for the Senate in Florida and maybe even president.

"I think he’d be an outstanding senator. ... I’d like to see him be president some day," Bush the elder said. "Right now is probably a bad time because maybe we’ve had enough Bushes in there."

If this happen I'm moving to Iraq. The Bush guys just don't understand incompetence.
