LIFE'S BETTER IN THE MOUNTAINS

Yet Another Break?

Yes, I'm taking a two-week break from posting. I have another best friend who is coming to visit. This one is REALLY special. She's my daughter and we plan to have some great fun. Few things in life are as satisfying as the realization that your grown children are wonderful adults and have become your good friends. My daughter was 12 when we moved to Wisconsin so she spent her early years in the south and she loves our NC mountains. We will be day-tripping all over the place.

I leave you with some photographs of real signs. I did not take any of them, but the site from which I downloaded them did not give credit to the photographers. The signs make almost as much sense as the three executives who played the blame game yesterday in the Senate hearing. BP quickly identified Transocean as the guilty party. Transocean just as quickly pointed the finger at Halliburton. And who did Halliburton blame? Why, BP of course.

Well, at least the signs are a bit humorous. There's NOTHING humorous about the disastrous oil spill and lack of accountability.








Finally, the Washington Post recently invited readers to "invent" new words by combining or altering common words. Here is my very favorite:
ignoranus: a person who is both stupid AND an a**hole.
I have a frightening number of people I have so labeled.

Have a wonderful two weeks. I'll be checking your blogs and when I return I'll share some of our little trips with you.

Have a wonderful time with daughter. Hope you manage to do all the things that you plan.

The oil spill is horrendous. I cringe each day I see it on the news. I just hope they stop blaming each other and get on with the job. The devastation mounts every day.

Love the signs.....so funny....
