I've decided to go friends only for personal posts.
I love meeting new people so leave a comment if you would like for me to friend you back.

Drabbles and other non-personal posts will be open.
I love James Marsters and will gush about him endlessly.

The last few months have worn me out.  Issues with my apartment, car, health and work.  I've had a leak in my bathroom for almost a year. They kept sending out plumbers who just couldn't figure out what was going on.  Then not only my apartment, but four others were flooded.  There was a block in the system that went out to the city lines. Finally they cut up the wall in my bathroom to find a pipe that had broken and was leaking into my apartment. It has taken weeks and a few days in a hotel before it was fixed.  I have put off having my car in the shop for an electrical issue due to the bathroom problem.  So hopefully that will be fixed soon.

Work has been up and down.  Our store manager left for several months. The man who took over drove everyone crazy.  At least four people who have been with the store since it opened quit or retired. Now that manager has been moved to another store and our last manager came back. I just hope things begin it improve.  We had our hours cut, people moved around in the store, and just a black cloud over all of us. Customers complained about me not being in my normal job. So I'm now back in place and my hours have been back up to normal. The company is undergoing changes in policy and merchandise as well. Things are being done differently and many of the changes are okay. Some just don't make sense and anger customers.

Things in America are so upsetting as well.  I just being using Medicare so that was a whole change over that isn't easy. Then Trump is destroying our lives in so many ways. I hate to watch the news because each day brings a new horror.  Can I go to sleep and wake up in 2020 to find Trump is defeated and the wolrd makes sense again?

I grew up during the late 50's and 60's.  i remember signs over water fountains saying for Whites and for Blacks.  Yes, I'm that old.  There is a statue on the Court House Square in my home town.  I think it was of a Civil War soldier.  It's been so many years I just remember it being there, but not much else about it.  My father-in-law's name was Robert E. Lee Turner.  He dropped the E. part and I never thought much about it.  I never gave much thought to why there was Civil War statues in the Southern States.  There were just there. Now I don't understand why we have them.  The South lost.  Why would you put up a statue to someone who lost a war?

 I lived in Germany and there they chipped out the Swastikas that were on buildings and there are no statues of Hitler.  I visited concentration camps while I lived there.  It was a emotional moment for me. That is what we should have. Memorals to the horror of Salvery so we will not allow humans to own other humans.  You can disagree and say it was about States rights, but I will always believe it was about Salvery.  I do not honor men who thought Salvery was their right. They can take the Satutes and move them to some place like the Smithsonian in a display of history. Not to honor them, but to show history as it truly was.

I once sat in a small park in Germany.  An older woman sat down beside me.  She wispered to me "Hitler build this park. He was a good man."  I couldn't believe she said that to me. Everyone has a right to their own opinion, but that just shocked me.

I am always shocked by Texas weather.  You would think since I grew up here I would be use to it.  The horrible flooding from Harvey is terrible.  The only good thing is how people band together at times like this to help each other.  A few weeks ago we were dealing with the aftermath of Charlottesville. The country seemed so divided with hate. Now the American people are proving once again how they care and will pull together to help each other.

I heard on tv today he threatens to shut down the government if they don't push through his wall to be built. Last week it was him about Neo-Nazi mess. He isn't doing anything about anything, but acting like a spoiled child who didn't get his way. Now he says he is thinking about pardoning Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio who was recently convicted of ignoring a U. S. court order to stop traffic patrols of targeting immigrants in a racial profling case.

I was dismayed by Trump when he annouched that he plans to reinstate a ban on transgender individuals from seriving "in any capacity" in the US armed forces.  He tried to play it off that it would be a burden for medical reasons.  The Arm Forces spend more on Viagra than on transgender surgries.

I just hope the American people wake up so they will see who this man is and what he isn't.  I was so proud of McCain when he refused to vote with the GOP on health reform.  I might not always agree with McCain, but he is a honorable man.  Trump is a disgrace to the US.

Normally I am very excited about a new President, but not so much this time. I really don't trust Trump and am not looking forward to him being in office. His selections for his cabinet are scary. Most of them are big business men who are not for the middle class. They are more Wall Street. Rick Perry is a total joke. This whole deal with Trump and Russia bothers me as well. I hate how this has unfolded. I really don't trust him or the people he is selecting. I am afraid someone will try to take Trump out and then Pence will be President. That is even more scary.
