First, a big thank you to those who responded to my recent call for comments. I now feel less ghostly! I also get to add some new folks to my blogroll. Second, the comment by Mage had me going, because she has a classic vocabulary. Anyway the answer is "two mauve plastic plant pots" on the floor of the garage. (If you do not know what I am talking about you have to read the comments.) Third, I have been gone for three days taking care of a 5-year-old, a 9-year-old and an 11-year-old. All went well...no stitches and with the two being very active boys, I consider that a win. The smoke alarm problem I wrote about before was a CO2 alarm dead battery problem located just across the floor and thus we spent $75 bucks having the electrician assist...although even he did not figure it out for quite some time. I also spent $30 on a new, and now unneeded, smoke alarm. I am suggesting that smoke alarms and CO2 alarms should be required to have different tweets!!
My sciatica is kicking in which is rare but I still have to go out into the swamp today and help other volunteers with cleaning out the Wood Duck boxes. Weather is calm and dry but will be in the low 40sC. UGH.
I am still very depressed and angry at the election. But we have met the enemy and he is us and we have only ourselves to blame for not seeing the deep seated frustration of this country's citizens and not holding our party's feet to the fire on fairness in selecting a broader band of candidates. I WILL continue my fight on the issues of racism which has emboldened some very dark souls. I will continue my outspoken belief that women do not get a fair chance in this country yet. I will continue to write my representatives regarding the importance of our social programs that are on the agenda for being dismantled including Medicare which leaves many on fixed incomes with no alternative.

Now I am off to find some shoes that I do not mind getting muddy.
