Sitting at a bar...

On the tiny split patio. Totally by myself.
I am in NW Seattle in the Phinney neighborhood. On the corner is a tiny building. Three things on the sign.

Home
Espresso
Repair

But the best part is the (now vintage) poster of the HOPE Obama poster. Itís faded but lovely. O. M. G.

I love sitting here and then suddenly looking over and seeing the man of the century!
My man.

Barack Obama

Ladies and gents...Tom Petty! Girl on LSD

Ha! Donít remember hearing this before but I have been on Lake Shore Drive a time or two.

This is THE BOMB. I chose the live version. Have fun!

Edit to add: watching the concert. This was the third song in the set. A new one he said.

Mary tRump's book

Why does she have to tell it in a book?

If itís THAT important - just tell it! Same with Bolton. This book shit has me pretty pissy about people who want to profit off misery and their selfish attitudes outta get their asses kicked!

Oh SHIT! The walrus is the bad guy!

Yep! Hereís one for John Bolton. Stupid prick. And some history on the lyrics written by John Lennon.
SNIP
The idea for the Walrus came from the poem The Walrus and The Carpenter, which is from the sequel to Alice in Wonderland called Through the Looking-Glass. In his 1980 Playboy interview, Lennon said: "It never dawned on me that Lewis Carroll was commenting on the capitalist and social system. I never went into that bit about what he really meant, like people are doing with the Beatles' work. Later, I went back and looked at it and realized that the walrus was the bad guy in the story and the carpenter was the good guy. I thought, Oh, s--t, I picked the wrong guy. I should have said, 'I am the carpenter.' But that wouldn't have been the same, would it?"

Boy, that Vallow, Daybell, Cox story outta ID is effed up!

My mind is contorted with the twists and connections. This one will take some time to unravel, I would estimate.

Those poor children. Their mother is quoted (by a friend in CNN article) with saying each was a zombie and that their church basically existed to kill/rid zombies. Then, once she said it a child disappeared - first the girl, then the boy (according to the friend in CNN article ) My mind is numb.

The number of people that have died in this ďaffairĒ is crazy! WTF? Is law enforcement doing around there? I am gonna go look for more articles. I donít do drama very good but this story has so many twists itís like horror novel and I need some more info. I had only read one other article when the couple was found in HI. Hope that this couple is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Pretty sure this isnít over. By a long shot. Hoooey!

The Into The Wild bus took a helo ride

Welp, the powers that be in Alaska decided this ďtouristĒ attraction had to go.

Iíve seen the movie but would never venture out to see this landmark. I am pretty sure there are hundreds of better hikes in AK! Lol!

The piece I read on CNN website stated that it is tbd what will be permanent home of the bus.

I wrote this last year on June 19

White man with black kids - George Floyd was my wakeup

This is an excellent essay by a man married to a woman from Angola. They have two children and live in MN. He details how his white upbringing left him in denial about systemic racism and racial profiling.

(CNN)My wife, Gilda, is Black.

We met years ago when I was working in Angola, her native country in southern Africa. Together, we have two mixed-race children, Haakon and Gabriella, ages 6 and 3.

On the evening of May 25, Gilda and I were finishing up a Memorial Day dinner with some friends; we had enjoyed a sunny afternoon boating near Excelsior, a quaint little touristy town on Lake Minnetonka, an affluent area just west of Minneapolis where we live. As we were wrapping up our dinner, we were completely unaware that just a few miles away, a Minneapolis police officer was digging his knee into the neck of an unarmed Black man named George Floyd, ultimately killing him in broad daylight.
