Mom died last night

So far I am numb. it's not as if it were unexpected. She was 97, was diagnosed with a bad aortic valve ten years ago and refused surgery to repair it since she never had an operation in her life. Since Dad died in 2013 she had worsening dementia. Last year the same day I had my kidney removed she was diagnosed with metastatic liver cancer. They think her heart gave out.

I can't follow the news - just can't concentrate on it. I turned over to streaming TV but can't remember what I watched all afternoon. The funeral is Saturday. I'm not ready to say good bye.

It was a steamy evening in June. Leon County Sheriff Deputy Randall Pacchioli drove into the parking lot of the Woodrun Baptist Church on Apalachee Parkway and noticed a group of children crowded around a parked truck.

“The kids were all fascinated by something under the truck,” said Deputy Pacchioli. “So I walked over and crouched down beside them. Right next to the front tire was a tiny kitten; it looked to be about two months old, and it was scared to death.”

Without hesitation, the animal lover scooped up the kitten.

“It didn’t scratch or bite; it just snuggled into my arm.”

Rick Scott's do-it-yourself guide to rigging a Supreme Court

Romano: Rick Scott’s do-it-yourself guide to rigging a Supreme Court

To set the stage, three Supreme Court justices face mandatory retirement on Jan. 7, which is also Scott’s final day in office. Should he get to fill those seats, a court that leans 4-3 toward the left would swing 6-1 toward the right.

Of course, if Ron DeSantis wins the governor’s race in November, this debate becomes moot. While he and Scott may not have the exact same replacements in mind, they’d just be choosing different branches off the same ideological tree.

But if Andrew Gillum is elected, the transition will get ugly.

Scott’s team has previously argued that the Supreme Court will have vacancies at 12:01 a.m. on Jan. 8, and a new governor will not be sworn in until later that afternoon. That would, the theory goes, give Scott time to make the appointments.

But Gillum could decide to take the oath of office at midnight, and theoretically render those appointments meaningless. Constitutional crisis, anyone?

Now there is a new one! Got a call from "Apple"

Warning that my Apple products (type unnamed) could be infected and should not be used until I call their tech support line for help.

I am highly amused - the last Apple device I owed was the Apple ][ I got rid of thirty years ago. I have not owned a single Apple product or used any Apple service since I dumped that thing. I really wish it had been a human on the phone instead of a robocall - I cracked up as soon as it started into its spiel.

Where are the democats?

Alex Witt had Sam Nuneburg on earlier, now she has Omarosa. Before Trump I'd never heard of either of these twits. What makes them worthy of more than one interview, much less repeated appearances on any channel other than Faux Noise?

Did MSNBC make deals with them for repeated (paid?) interviews? Are they hoping Nuneburg will have another on air meltdown? Do they think that they will get first chance at more Omarosa videos or recordings?

I've just turned off my TV and will only turn it back on today for streaming videos or to check the Weather Channel for updates on Florence.

Thanks, MSNBC, for freeing me from your channel.
