good news

Good news!  My mother, age 88, has an appointment to get the vaccine the first week of  February.  Thanks to Jen's hard work and perseverance ... and luck to be around when a new block of appointments opened up.

The vaccine!

 My daughter-who-works-for-the-police-department has been vaccinated against Covid.

So how does it end?

 There are only three options.

He can still resign and save what’s left of his dignity.

Pence and the Cabinet can invoke the 25th Amendment.

The House, by bipartisan vote, will impeach.  And there’s a good chance the Senate will convict.

He will never resign and Pence has rejected using the 25th.  So impeachment it is ...

And not soon enough.

I just want him gone.

One week ...

The last of the holiday happenings

Well, 2021 really got started with a bang, didn't it?

With all that has happened in the last few days, I wasn't really in the mood for blogging....

But then I had to laugh.

Back in November I placed an order  on Amazon. I ordered disposable face masks, a small package of them, decorated with the words "Happy New Year 2021".  At the time I expected a small group of us would be spending New Year's Eve in a restaurant, watching the ball drop and drinking champagne. I thought we could all wear those masks.  

Well, the delivery date came and went.  No masks.  Covid got worse, a 10 PM curfew was imposed, and the masks became irrelevant as we changed our plans for the big night.  

Amazon gave me a refund, and I forgot about the masks.

Guess what showed up  in the mail on January 4?

Our annual visit to Jones Beach for the Magic of Lights was a bit different this year.  It's always been a drive-through display, but this year there was no "Santa's Village" to visit.

I was a bit annoyed, they started sending cars through the display  before it was fully dark.

And the light display is set up in the same part of the park as Covid testing...jarring signs...


But the display was as lovely as always.

The trees dance to music.  My video didn't capture the music, but enjoy the effects:

You know how I feel about dragons:

And since we are at the beach:

And I loved the light tunnels.

It felt so drive through the display...

Maybe next December will be a more normal one.

Music Monday

 And it's a "your choice" week.

See if you can guess my theme.

If you said "songs about birds", you'd be right...

For an encore.... here are some birds dancing to a song about  birds.

 The events in the Capitol yesterday have left me wrung out and exhausted.

13 days.  Can we hold on for just 13 days?

Dark, dark day

 Protesters overwhelm the Capitol, Pence and Pelosi ushered to safety, everyone else ordered to shelter in place ...

Trump incited this. 

This is what a coup looks like.

He needs to go NOW!
