I'm an overweight retired diabetic with high blood pressure who will be 65 in June.

In other words, the Corvid virus has pinned a big target sign to my puffy dimpled Irish ass.

I went to a doctor's appointment today and then to pick up a few groceries.

After I got home, my wife, who is a young sprite in her mid 50s, and my soon to be 20 year old son and I have agreed that my big ass (and I have a BIG ass) is staying right here in the house until this shit is OVER.

I don't care that Dolt45 said that everything will be back to "normal" by Easter. His primary concern (as I've stated before) is that he wants to make sure that the Easter Bunny puts lots of goodies in his little basket because he lied and said that he's been a good boy.

I can, if I tried, think of a time or two that I complied with something that Dubya wanted us to do. I will do NOTHING at he behest of Donald J Trump.

I've been using #notmypresident since he was sworn in. I will never use "President" as an adjective before the proper noun "Trump" in reference to HIM.

I will use a term that my mother used in the later years of her life.

If God spares me until Election Day, I will be at the polls at opening time so that I can be one of the first people in my town to cast a vote to kick his puffy "239" pound ass OUT of our White House.

While I rarely wish ill on anyone, I wish nothing but misfortune on he and his equally miserable offspring. As far as I'm concerned, they can all go and piss up a rope.

A question about Dolt45 wanting the country to be "open" by Easter.

How many of you think he's anxious for the Easter Bunny to come and leave lots of yummy goodles in his little basket because he's been such a GOOD boy?

How many of you want to barf at the thought?

As always, Donald trump is an idiot and an ass hat.

I saw that Dolt45 is claiming to be a "wartime president."

The funny thing is that I believe that he goes to war with all of the McDonald's "food" that he gets Chris Christie to fetch for him.

As always, Donald Trump is an idiot and an ass hat

If you watch TV,...

...what will you have on during Dolt45's address?

For me, Family Feud reruns on the Game Show Network.

Dr. Jill Biden

I've said it before and I'll say it again now.

Dr. Jill Biden is the personification of charm, grace and elegance to go along with her major brain power.

AND...she knows Joe Biden "up close!"

Might I also add that we now know that if anyone attempts to trifle with her husband she is quite willing to and capable of giving that person a big ol' kick in the arse!

I can't wait for her to be our FLOTUS.

Tonight I, as an up to today Amy Klobuchar supporter I say one final time...

GO Amy Klobuchar!

And now I will follow the lead of the woman whose lead I had hoped to follow for the next 8 years and say that tomorrow in the Maine primary I will vote for VP Joe Biden.

I'm Ridin' with Biden!

For my own curiosity, what will you be watching during Dolt45's speech?

For me, Impractical Jokers.

Tonight's Super Bowl half time show.

Normally, if the Super Bowl half time were a movie, it would make "Dude Where's My Car" look like "Schindler's List."

That being said, IMHO tonight's wasn't bad...pretty good, in fact.

That's my 2 cents and quite possibly overpriced at that.

Prince Charles snubbed Mike Pence at Auschwitz?

I understood that Pence had a relative who died there.

It happened when he slipped and fell out of the guard tower.

I'm observing a special anniversary today.

30 years ago today, January 14, 1990, was the first day of my sobriety. When I first went into recovery I never imagined the notion of 30 years without booze, but one day at a time, I have now been free of the drunken state for 30 years.

If you are an addicted person, let me say that you can get here from there. 30 years used to be 20, then 10, then 5, then 1, then today.

I can't and won't promise you that life will be PERFECT. I can and will promise you that it will be BETTER.

I don't know what yours or anyone else's "hit bottom" is or will be. I CAN tell you what mine was.

On 1/13/90 I had 14 beers in my refrigerator. I had the day off from work and I drank them all. I was lying on my living room floor (where I usually slept) and I woke up momentarily and saw a rat about a foot away from my nose nibbling on a Burger King wrapper that I had just dropped at my ass. It scared the hell out of me. The thought came to me that the friends of mine whom I routinely told to go fuck themselves when they told me that my drinking was a serious problem just might have a point.

I haven't had one sip of alcohol since.

In jest I frequently say that I stopped boozing because I just got tired of trying to take my pants off over my head. I stole that line from Woody Allen.

Anyway, I don't want to say that I'm proud of this, but I am definitely happier now than then.

That's my 2 cents, and quite possibly overpriced t that.

Thanks for reading.
