She had me after the first jerk on the first jerk's neck: Tribute to Joy Reed doing her job so well

I've been noticing positive comments on DU about Joy Reed. So I literally sat down to see her Sunday morning show and now I am crystal clear on just why that is!

She does not allow rambling from talking points or non answers from anyone.
She does not allow veering off the subject or twisting those non-answers into accusations against the opponent.
She has the warmest smile when she goes after them by precisely labeling their behavior and their often underhanded intentions.
She stops them cold, and forces them to either start over and present an appropriate answer and if that is not forthcoming she shuts them up and tells them why.
She is a force to be heeded and reckoned with.
It seems she has become must see TV.

Above all else she has perfected the art of not allowing interruptions. If they start talking over the person who has the floor in order to drown out their words she puts an immediate end to it, but first she calls them on what they are doing and labels it.

I so wish we could have her in charge of the debates to come! She would shine a penetrating light on non-answers, garbage talk, dancing around issues and diversions, and she would on the spot call anyone out on lies or obfuscation and she would back it up with obvious knowledge and proof.

I used to think of her as the woman who either never sleeps, or has an identical twin. I had noticed she seems to be filling in for someone or shows up on the screen a whole lot.
I now know it's time to sit down and turn up the sound and pay close attention when this happens.
What a perfect time to have such a perfect person doing her important job this well!

Itís embarrassing to be so repetitive óbut I almost lost my cookies when I saw this Iguana

I start with this shot, which I took when I spied it on the hedge at the fence, to give you a reference to size. I would say it was the size of a small cat.




Maybe this iguana hoped I was not coming too much closer yet stayed wary. He even did a 180 while I put my purse down and tried to become invisible






In the end I tried to creep up more, and it turned and plopped to the ground sounding like a dropped watermelon

Iím throwing in this one to remind and show you how afeared I have been of accidentally stepping on one.


Couple photos from my walk tonight - my stay in Paradise will end soon :(



Walk at sunset tonight. Even have a few bird pictures


A mixture of things I saw tonight on a short walk. The main purpose was the gathering of some rocks for my front yard, since Iím here with my car.

Iguanas....yes....mnhtnbb, they are very green here



Facebook knew what the voters want

Thought of Solly Mack when I took this ó so this oneís firstly for her

In the Florida Keyes, the old Flagler built Highway One runs parallel to the new one for long stretches. It has large pieces deliberately removed so nobody can get on it for obvious reasons, and it is just left there to rot.
I stopped today to photograph one of those sections, and found the green Iguana guarding the turf.

Steely and green. Sky and Water in the middle Keys this morning.







Weather. Coming in and moving through.

On a walk last night.
