Dear President Trump, Along with much of the rest of the country (apparently), I’ve been thinking a lot about Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s assertion the other day that she and the other Democrats in Congress are going to impeach you and specifically about her choice term for you: “mother*cker.” Of course it would have been a … Continue reading When the epithet fits….
Dear President Trump, Can you stand all this positivity emanating from the House? It’s like a fresh breeze blew in yesterday morning and pushed aside the fetid toxic air that’s been choking the country the last two years. There’s so much to take in already and there are new things popping up every few minutes, … Continue reading A fresh breeze
Dear President Trump, Yesterday someone I was talking with dropped “well, tomorrow Nancy is coming” into the conversation and as she visibly relaxed, I felt my body tension dip too. Nancy is coming. Today. I know we can’t pin too much hope or put too much pressure on any one person, but OMG am I … Continue reading Nancy has arrived 🙂
Dear President Trump, It’s not quite 4pm and the sun has almost set here. We’ll probably have another 30 or so minutes of daylight (I’ll still be typing to you so I’ll let you know when it gets dusky-dark) at which time we’ll be about 4 and a half hours from the government shutting down. … Continue reading If it looks like treason and smells like treason….
Dear President Trump, It happens pretty much every time I stray from my baby blanket knitting projects and venture into sweaters, mittens, or hats.

Dear President Trump, Here’s something to be grateful for on this Thanksgiving Day, 2018 – a Republican Senator (Todd Young of Indiana) was quoted in the WP as saying “Economic interests are important, but they are not the most important thing,” in reference to the lack of real effort by the Saudis to minimize the … Continue reading Bits to be grateful for
Dear President Trump, The first time I cried yesterday was when I was perusing the new Sunset magazine celebrating their 120th anniversary. On the sides of most the pages are little pictures and snippets of significant Western events over the years. I was doing fine until I got to the picture of a four- or … Continue reading Crying sort of day
Dear President Trump, Who got stuck with trying to convince you that you couldn’t give your usual performance at the Wisconsin rally last night, that you couldn’t incite violence or dredge up the usual spiky crowd pleasers? Did they make you wear a remote controlled electric shocker so they could give you a jolt if … Continue reading Presidential, my ass
Dear President Trump, I’m in the other room typing to you listening to Laura and our friend who’s visiting from Houston talking about who Laura follows on Twitter. It kind of feels like when I was a kid and my parents would have parties and I’d stay up listening to everyone talking and laughing. It’s … Continue reading “Your VOTE Matters”
Dear President Trump, I’m absolutely exhausted from our trip and my cold has gotten worse. I also think I set myself back by watching my first episode of “Black Mirror” before we left for the airport. Apparently it was one of the tamer episodes, but it completely zapped me emotionally. The BM show (“Fifteen Million … Continue reading Brownie points of the best sort
