Good Monday Morning P4A Kids…
It’s here…Finally!! The Monsoon has arrived here in Colorado!! WOO HOO!!! It’s has been raining for about the last 7 hours here off and on as of this posting. Now we need to worry about flash flooding and mudslides in the Waldo Canyon burn scar. One thing after another but I think we will all take the rain right now! Sorry for all you on the east coast that have had your fill of rain…but I am a happy camper right about now!
It was a quiet weekend here. It is nice to be home again and out of a “canyon” atmosphere. Sleep was few and far between for about the past 2 weeks and frankly Sunday…I spent most of the day just catching up on that! The road above where I was house sitting still remains closed to only residents for fear of an arsonist or lightening strike. When I got back home I learned that large paper debris from the Waldo Canyon fire had made it to our front door step. Just as a reference point…that is about 10 miles due east of the burn area. Also came home to find a Doe and 3 baby fawns still with spots roaming around the neighborhood. Many animals got displaced from the fire…but 3 babies tells me it is unusual. Anyway…it’s RAINING!!!! Did I mention that part? :)
Sad to hear that one of my most favorite actors has died. Such a Gentle-MAN Giant! RIP Ernest Borgnine! I don’t think he ever had a bad thing to say about anyone. He just went out and did his job…loved his family, and loved this Nation. Many younger actors could learn a thing or two about life…from him.
Onto the Headlines:
It’s about “Independence” UTAH! I find this strangely ironic. They are more concerned with “family” but yet they are angry over a float about a man trying to DESTROY FAMILY. I guess they just failed to understand the message so they blamed the messenger! Typical!
I bet they are shaking in their boots…more so at her appearance rather than words. Hell she scares me!
I blame Piper!
Chicken Little…Phone Home!!!
This is a good thing…in the world of delusion or the Obama Administration.
Idiot Alert. If he only knew…we can’t stand him either!
Breaking out my tiny violin….
Love at first sight!
