Orchids to

the hunter neighbor who generously shared his delicious fresh ground beef.

the man that saw my lost stainless steel drinking glass fall off my vehicle, chased me down to tell me and returned it to me.

Rick at Overhead Door for great customer service.

Onions to

our national obsession with guns, we have the most guns and school shootings in the world.

the demise of America created by politicians, the wealthy elite and our enemies.

the county officials for refusing to change county animal welfare ordinances to help neglected and abused dogs.

legislators stripping parents of their right to seek the health care their children may need.

the banning and burning of books about homosexuality and transgender topics by the Nazi Party in Germany in 1933.

living in a country that loves its guns more than its children.

the barrage of almost daily phone call reminders and messages about a single medical appointment.

organizations that believe not being able to spend whatever they want represents a loss of income.

yet another school shooting and the political party that believes in the sanctity of guns above all else and has nothing to offer but “thoughts and prayers.”

those who would deny medical care to anyone for any reason.

not trusting teachers to pick books, but wanting them to carry guns.

the comics that have no humor, no point and make no sense.

the greedy corporation and the two unions that have not negotiated a raise for retirees in 25 years.

misspending school tax dollars and then asking for more.

the new House majority unable to do anything as long as we have the same president and the same Senate majority.
