We have had a perfect week of warm and sunny days with cool nights. The dogs thrive in this weather and we have made several trips to places where they can run and romp.
They are looking at two fishermen by the lake.

I am on a mission to have a name eliminated from the press. There is absolutely no need to ever mention, much less quote that vicious witch with the long blond hair. You know, AC. The one with the evil vitriolic mouth, the mean-spirited one with the cackling laugh. She doesn't deserve to share our planet much less be thrust in the spotlight. So while I am a proponent of free speech, let's not talk about her. Please.
Ann evil one...our mailbox flag is perfect for you
Elections are at hand. And such a political season I have never witnessed. And I hope never to witness again. Many citizens are already casting ballots. I urge you once again to learn as much as you can about every candidate. Do not be swayed by political advertisements from special interest groups. Look at each candidate over his/her life; learn what his/her priorities have been, and try to determine who will best represent the interests of all of the people. As for President...much is at stake as the two candidates and their platforms could hardly be more different. And keep in mind that some members of the Supreme Court are aging and will likely be replaced within the next four years. And they are appointed for life.
Research the backgrounds of the local candidates. And if your state elects justices of your state Supreme Court, do not vote blindly. These judges will make a huge difference in the way you live your lives, folks. And while I never recommend a straight-party ticket, if you so vote remember that you must also vote for President. That office is not included in the straight-party ticket.
It is rare for me to quote such a despicable person...totally evil devoted friend of Adolph Hitler. But take the words of Joseph Goebbels as a warning:
If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it...It thus becomes vitally important...to use all powers to repress dissent, for truth is the mortal enemy of the lie.
Our political quote this week comes from essayist H. L. Mencken:
Under democracy one party devotes its chief energies to trying to prove that the other party is unfit to rule - and both commonly succeed, and are right.
Several comments from my last post wanted to know if we plan to name our new bear. Yep...we already did. His name is Barack but we call him Barry.
HAVE A SAFE AND WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE!
Keep an eye on the weather and think of those in harm's way.
