Best ending to any day…
They called it *Dark side of the Moon* it is dark, smooth, dreamy creamy, and oh so so chocolaty! Rich dark chocolate deliciousness.
G bought it for me at the farmers market yesterday.
She’d promised me one a month before my birthday but had knee surgery when the time rolled around. She was laid up on my birthday, in the hospital recovering from her surgery.
You need to know. This only about the third or fourth birthday cake I’ve had in the last 43 years. She knew this and that’s why, even late, it was a big deal for me.
Yummiest chocolate cake ever!

Still true these days
If you ever injected truth into politics you’d have no politics. WILL ROGERS, Weekly Article #31, Jul. 15, 1923
I wonder what Will Rogers would have to say about #Twitler #TheWhitehouserat #Cheeto? I’m sure he’d be as disgusted as most of us are. Only he’d word it so much better.
I’m betting he’d have a good time with The #idiotincharge’s nepotism. Never one to mince words and always on the side of the little guy, Will would’ve had a blast with twitter and #derTwitler’s Childish temper tantrums.
Hey, Will, if you’re listening. I’m willing to channel your comments any day.

Another WTF is that idiot doing day.
We have truly fallen down the rabbit hole and unfortunately it’s not Alice’s wonderland we have found at the bottom.
This is a rabbit hole of despair, horror, and insanity.
A man with the temperament of a spoiled rotten three-year-old holds our people hostage. #Twitler #TheWhitehouserat and his evil cronies are stripping away all that made this country great and have turned us into the country that may well destroy this world of ours.
We will have factories belching toxic smoke again. Rivers, streams, and lakes polluted and burning. Air quality so poor you’ll have to wear respirators. Oh yeah #theorangetroll will make us great again. Great destroyers of beauty and life.
Please countries of the world sanction the #whitehouseidiot! Help us impeach him and drive his cronies out.

This cannot stand
It saddens me that #theorangebaboon and the Republican party are out to rip apart all the legislation that protects our air, lands, water, and animals.
It saddens me that they have no desire to work for us as they should but are so greedy that lining their pockets ranks number one on their agendas.
It frightens me that #Twitler is ignoring our laws and doing as he pleases. Really, giving titles and offices to your son? Your daughter? Nepotism at its best.
It angers me that The Republicans and #Cheeto seem to have a need to gut all programs that aid women and children.
Education, so important, is tossed aside and his person who is responsible for it is completely unfit for the job. All she brings to the table is her wealthy ignorance and large bank account.
The whole ‘let them eat cake’ attitude of this administration is detrimental to us all.
Rise up! This cannot stand.

Oh no….it’s back.
Posted on | Image
I just live here…
A thank you once in a while.
Please, would also be nice to hear more often, it makes one feel less like a servant.
I’m sick of you asking “what’s for dinner?” and not helping me out with an idea when I give you a list of things I could make. I am tired of making that decision day in and day out. Then having you complain that you didn’t want that.
You know you’ve been told frequently that you are difficult to hear (and not just by me) because you mumble or speak too quietly. Why don’t you turn down the sound on the TV and speak loud enough for everyone to hear you.
Because you’re afraid I won’t hear you if you fall or get sick again, I’ve slept on the couch for well over a year now. My back hurts.
When you fall, you insist I help get you up and you know you’ve injured my back enough times that…my back hurts.
You get mad at me when I call for help to get you up.
I clean as best as I can…but my back hurts.
I go to our family doctor, tell him my back hurts, and he asks how you are doing.
He doesn’t check my back. He doesn’t order x-rays or MRIs to see if there is damage. He quickly listens to my heart and my lungs. Asks if I need refills on my pills but ignores me when I tell him my back hurts.
Time for a new doctor who doesn’t know you. A doctor who sees me and not you when I am standing in front of him.
I have one friend who comes to see me. All the others have walked away. I can’t get away to make new friends either. You don’t like me to be gone for more than an hour. If I am gone longer, you look for any excuse to repeatedly call me on my cell phone (I knew I was going to regret getting it.
I am not a happy person anymore. I don’t laugh much. I do cry a lot.
I just live here, I don’t enjoy life.

No time to rest…
Even though the #whitehouserat #twitler and his pocket monkey Ryan withdrew the Trumpdoesn’tgiveafuckaboutusnocare bill we can’t sit back and expect things to fall in place for We The People.
No, they will continue to do everything they can to make the ACA look bad and block everything they can to make it fail.
The republicans are also gutting every safeguard we have. We can’t allow that.
Continue to resist.
Be a pain in the ass about each and every item they try to take away.
Let’s make sure all women have proper, affordable healthcare, maternity leaves, and safety in their daily lives.
Let’s keep our clean air, clean water, public lands, endangered species and all protections for animals.
Fight the good fight, it’s only our lives we fight for.
And now from the realm of you have to be fucking kidding me…
As seen on the internet
1.”The Texas Senate passed a controversial bill on Tuesday that critics argue would empower doctors to lie to pregnant women.
Senate Bill 25, which will now be sent to the Texas House, prevents parents from suing their medical provider if their baby is born with disabilities, even if that doctor discovered the condition during routine prenatal testing and failed to inform the parents.”
2. The senate just voted to undo rules covering your internet privacy
3. The Senate voted 52-47 to remove protections for wildlife in Alaska. The bill overturns protections for wildlife in our National Wildlife Refuges in Alaska. One protection these bills overturn is allowing the killing of wolf pups and bear cubs in and around their dens, even by means of gassing dens. It also allows “hunters” to use aircraft to hunt bears.
4. A republican senator ridiculed women with breast cancer. A Kansas republican senator apparently thinks women’s health care is a joke… (I think they each deserve a mailbox full of bras.)
5. Not. A. Single. Woman. Was. At. The. White. House. Meeting. On. Women’s. Health.
6. Oklahoma state representative says rape and incest are the will of God. Oh, please tar and feather this guy!
And those are just the highlights from yesterday.

How long do you prolong suffering?
I was reading a post in a dog related FB group last night and was so sad that someone had a dog who has had severe neurological problems since he/she was only months old.
They’ve controlled seizures with medication but he/she has other symptoms they cannot control. Severe ones. Enough to make me think the dog’s quality of life is quite poor.
Yes, I know they love her. But seriously, love also means knowing when our beloved companions are suffering and you as a responsible owner can stop the suffering. You don’t keep the poor pet alive because you cannot bear to be without them.
Yes, it hurts to let them go. It hurts a lot. It is devastating. Please, when they are suffering, let them go.
When Gavin, aged 15, reaches that point in his life where the quality of his life is at its low point, we will let him go as we have other sweet companions we loved with all our hearts. For now the silly boy still bounces through life.

Warmer weather, melting snow, and plenty of mud to track into the kitchen. The dogs are in their glory.
Too much to do this week to worry about things like mopping the kitchen floor, grocery shopping, taking G for her PT at 10 a.m., Lucy to the vet for a check up and shot Thursday evening, and hoping to squeeze in getting some laundry done somewhere in there.
I already started the week with getting my glasses fixed, picking up medication for Gavin, and a pharmacy run for The Curmudgeon.
Twisted my knee tripping over Gavin which put off everything I wanted to get done yesterday. Fun. Not.

More things to rant over
Has anyone noticed the ‘natural gas’ ads that claim they are good for the ecology and all?
Did you also notice that the ads are Exxon/Mobil ads? Oh, yes they are. Look at the last few seconds of the ads and you’ll see Exxon/Mobil owns the ads.
Yes, big oil wants you to support them and forget that they are the biggest enemy of our delicate ecology. Think fracking, their desire to drill in our public lands without regulation, and the pipelines…mustn’t forget those nasty, polluting things.
Their ads are banned in the UK.
A letter to all nations
I wish to apologize for every faux pas and idiotic statement the #notmypotus #Cheetoincharge #Whitehouserat has made.
I did not vote for the moron and I feel that you all deserve to know that most of us are embarrassed that he even exists.
The fact that he actually garnered enough support to get as far as he did makes me want to apologize for those imbeciles who did vote for him and caused so much pain for the rest of us.
The Cretin in charge and all his billionaire con artist buddies are a blight on our country.
Help. I need asylum …preferably on a beach somewhere.
