I’ve downloaded and re-read all of the available Mitch Rapp novels. A new one will release in September : “Oath of Loyalty.“ I finished “Lethal Agent” Wednesday night, skipped “Total Power” since I had recently read it, and began “Enemy at the Gates” yesterday morning, finishing it about an hour ago.
The wind has returned along with higher humidity so there must be more rain in our forecast. I hope it holds off until our guys can mow this week. We shall see. I can’t take the wind or the humidity so I’m hibernating indoors with my Kobo e-reader and my knitting.
Brad made a trip to town for mail and groceries, the first time he’s been out in a couple of weeks. Just before he got to the main highway into town he spied a grown Canadian goose in the middle of the road. Turned out to be a male goose protecting his family. His mate and half a dozen little ones were in the ditch on the west side of our road, headed into a neighbor’s pasture. I guess they liked their stop-over in Texas this winter and decided to stay!
I got a good report from the pulmonologist yesterday. Lungs sound good, no need to change medication, everything is hunky dory and I’ll see him again in the fall. A strange woman kept giving me the evil eye as we sat in the waiting room, told me I should be wearing a mask…probably because I cleared my throat a few times due to sinus drainage. As she was leaving she stopped to glare at me and started to say something and I smiled and said, “It’s just allergies, hon. No fever, no sore throat. It’s nothing contagious. Have a nice day.” The gentleman she was with pulled her out the door by her arm and everyone else in the waiting room started snickering. The clinic ended their mask mandate several weeks ago but some folks still wear them. SHE wasn’t wearing one, she just wanted ME to. Oh, well. Bless her heart…
We are starting to see empty spots on shelves at the grocery stores where we shop. So far it’s not a big thing, but it makes me wonder how bad it might get, what with Bill Gates buying up farm land left and right and food manufacturing plants mysteriously burning down. And if that isn’t bad enough we now have The Resident in the White House establishing a Ministry of Truth as if we are living in a Harry Potter novel or George Orwell’s “1984”. Interesting times we live in these days.
It’s also interesting to see so many folks on Twitter who suddenly have thousands of their followers back as if by magic. Someone on Bongino’s Locals page likened it to Twitter employees doing a bit of ‘paper shredding’ so to speak before Elon takes charge in the near future. In any case, it is mildly entertaining to see the radical leftists losing their collective minds and complaining about the danger of elections being impacted because Elon has purchased the company. Yeah. Right. You mean like the way the 2020 election was impacted by leftist news agencies. And Twitter.
It’s Friday, so be sure to remember our deployed military members in your thoughts and prayers. God bless and have a wonderful RED Friday, ya’ll.
