Sunny Sunday Random Thoughts

It's a really pretty and sunny Sunday in Ohio and considering how awful the weather has been this Spring, it's a pretty warm day. Usually Summer is winking at us but it really hasn't warmed up that much. Global warming may be happening somewhere but my furnace is still running. Sigh.

I am a busy girl these days. The Census is interesting and a challenge and I'm learning a lot. And this being our government, it demands absolute perfection from us but they take their own sweet time fixing their screw ups -- no surprise
there. Sigh. Still, I like my bosses and they really do try hard.

I'm taking today off -- yes, we can work on Sunday if we wish -- but I needed to get some things done for me here -- like post here and try to play catch up with y'all.
I just got home from taking Shaughnessy for a walk. He was glad to see me as always but he misses Jeff.

* I'm trying to organize a trip up north to Toledo and visit my hometown -- always fun that always tugs at my heartstrings. I hope to work in a trip to the zoo or art museum this time. I had originally planned to go around the first of June for my stepmom's birthday but with my commitment to the Census until the June 15th, it's going to be a challenge.

* I am so ashamed of and appalled at the latest antics of Governor Jan Brewer and Sarah Palin. If we're all Arizonans now, send me an absentee ballot so I can vote that you-know-what out of office. Who besides me thinks that their behavior is treasonous and seditious?

* Jeff is enjoying Galway Bay immensely as always and said he might take a wee hop over to Scotland and threw in a guilt trip for me. And yes, I am still thinking.

* Richard was by last night. We discussed Jeff's question and he made a couple observations that have been rattling around in the back of my mind. Hearing it out loud is disconcerting. Sigh. Everyone is telling me stuff on this and it's starting to put me crazy. Or is that crazier? Either way, it's a short trip.

* If y'all aren't reading Russ' Filtered News blog, y'all should be. He provides
links to all the truly important aspects of what is going on in this country today. Occasionally, he does opinion pieces that are rational and sane. What a glorious concept!!!!!

Remember 'Shindig'? Remember The Lovin' Spoonful? Here's an old favorite of mine from '65 that's been rattling around my poor muddled brain of late. Enjoy!!!

That's about it for today! I'll be around to visit barring interruptions.

Hope y'all are having a great day!!!!!

Happy Blogging!!!!!!!!



  1. Y'know, maybe people follow Palin and those types because they are loathsome. And so loathsome people don't feel so bad about being loathsome when they see how loathsome Palin and those types are.

  2. You unearth the greatest videos. I'll be singing the rest of this evening :)

    Hello Kay! That's nice that you're having a lovely weather there. We have a fair share of bad weather as well during spring. Hopefully summer will be nice.

  6. Singing away, just what I needed on this Rainy Day and Monday!

  7. You haven't blogged much about your Census job; wondering if you have encountered any strange tight-lipped anti-government types in your jog (or perhaps you aren't supposed to talk about it?) I would think that it would provide some interesting anecdotes. Maybe in the future??

  8. I'm glad you've been enjoying your census job Kay...I'm sure it's been interesting.

    Hello there! Hope the job continues to go well. Of course, the world continues to go crazy....guess it always will, there's no explaining it, except they are all crazy!!

  10. Sure I remember the Lovin’ Spooful - do you believe in magic? La la la la. I have their record. I quickly looked at the Russ Filtered News blog and it looks interesting.

  11. Hattie: I think it's like a really bad accident -- you want to look away but you can't.

    Colleen: I aim to please!!!

    Gigi: Good!!!!

    Judy: LOL And it pays well.

    Chas: Our weather decided to tuen nasty.

    Wild: Coooooooool!

    Robert: I can't I took an oath.

    Joy: It's a bit of everything.

    AITBR: Indeed!!!

    Vagabonde: Glad you liked it!!!!

  12. I am trying to catch up on past posts. I'm glad I caught yours.

    I loathe our governor and the Republican legislators in my state. Jan Brewer is as bad as Sarah Palin and even had Sarah come try to gain support for that terrible bill.

    Now Arizona is reaping the harvest of that misguided piece of legislation. Guess what? Brewer is trying to mitigate the fall out and is appealing to tourists to come here. Ironic, huh?
