Since we do not watch TV or movies we have other rituals around here. Most every night we have an apple. Sherry isn’t crazy about peelings so I peel her apple and cut it up in small chunks. That way I get to eat the peelings. Then I cut one for me. I usually have some almonds with mine, lately it is pistachios. You ain’t gonna believe it, but my girl has started dipping her chunks in P-nut butter. then giving me the ‘MMMMMMMMM that is good’ thing.
She does some face book stuff, looking at pictures of friends And family. In between she squeezes in the video card games. I go to a forum where I read & comment (to spread my vast knowledge). I enjoy the banter, most of the guys are educated, I mean at least a college degree. I learn some things, and then with some subjects, I say to myself, “self, do people really believe that stuff!”
I like meeting folks here in Blogland, I have also met some of the folks from that forum traveling around. One day I’d like to meet Bonnie. She is a sweet lady from NC. She sometimes reads this drivel and comments anonymously. She is easy to agree with. She must be educated also, seems pretty smart. I enjoy smart folk with common sense.
I am amazed at folks who like to rewrite history. I am from the south. I love the south and I respect the fact that good men fought and died for what they thought was right. But the south LOST folks, and the South ain’t about to RISE again. It is the worst part of our USA history, so many men died, families split etc. I know there were a lot of reasons given for the war. But most do not hold water. It should not have happened.
So folks can go back and paint it anyway you want, we (the south) LOST big time. On the Appalachian trail there are 2 graves. Graves of 2 Union soldiers who were from the South. They were on leave and were trying to get back to see their families in North Carolina for Christmas, they were ambushed and killed by ‘friends’. How terrible is that.
WE LOST. And I certainly don’t ever want to see anything close to that.
I respect the Confederate flag. But I would not fly one. To some it is a racist thing for others it is a hateful thing, so I would not stir up any discontent, IT AIN’T WORTH IT!
I DIDN’T SIT DOWN TO SAY THAT BUT I DID.
Thanks for coming by the LOG.
