Dear President Trump, Although I’m careful not to stray too far outside the lines, I’ve never been much of a stickler for following rules, especially those I deem unnecessary or overly controlling. I realize that some people who know me would read this and laugh since I do still carry around a lot of “good … Continue reading Some rules really are made to be followed
Dear President Trump, Laura laughed last night when I told her I’d finally gotten to chapter 7 in the Abramson’s Proof of Conspiracy (the Kindle says I’m about 52% of the way through it). I’ve already been reading it for months now and it will probably take another few months to steadily plod through the … Continue reading Testing, testing…..
Dear President Trump, On the way home from the frame shop this afternoon I got behind a car with an Indiana license plate.

Dear President Trump, What’s the thread connecting a call from our daughter in the middle of the night last night about the Cave fire evacuation zone closing in on Santa Barbara and the following happy quip from your BFF Vladimir? “Thank God no one is accusing us anymore of interfering in the U.S. elections,” Russian … Continue reading It’s not about Vladimir’s vanity
Dear President Trump, Apparently you were crowing this morning on Fox & Friends that the Democrats look the fools now that the scheduled impeachment hearings have wrapped up. Laura read me something from Twitter about how you were jubilant over how it all went. I don’t what the original source for that was, but even … Continue reading What gives with Trump being happy about the hearings?
