This is how I am feeling today. I am tired of people and news and things. I need to unplug and let go.
I am mortified by the overwhelming ignorance that is running rampant in this country and I want to escape to a place of reason and calm.
Stupid people scare the shit out of me, especially the ones that don’t know they’re stupid. When I was 8 my Daddy taught me the difference between ignorant and stupid and I can handle ignorant – as long as there is a will to understand – but STUPID there is just no need for it.
This was taken at the Ohio State Fair in 1973. I would love to see this in color — can you imagine that dress? Groovy.
I miss you Mamma.

Frankie is a friend. She loves a snuggie.
This meltdown has been brought to you by yet another calendar change. I once again have NO CLEAR DATE when we are leaving NC, when we can get on the road and where we are going first.
I want to start a category of posts based on the view from my seat. It will become more interesting as the travel goes on. Here is the idea, one picture snapped from my seat once a week (maybe more often). A mini travel log.
Today Jacob was a helper! We had noms, baby snuggles, Asbach brandy, and more snuggles.
Out and about yesterday Himself spotted a pro-wolves bumper sticker. This always excites me to see others who love wolves and such. As we got closer we saw several enlightened stickers. The last one I saw before the driver flicked his cigarette butt out of his window was this one …
I am not even kidding.
We got along side of him and I rolled down the window and shouted at him “WAY TO SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT — ASSHOLE!!”
Not the most zen thing to do — but it was better than my first instinct to jump out of the car, picking up the butt and flicking it BACK into his face.
You know I love books, but being in such a small space there is not really room for me to carry around a lot of extra stuff. So I love my KINDLE. Today – I realized I loved it even more.
You can install a small app on your desktop (Windows / Apple / Android) and have just about any and every ebook, text file, html whathaveyous sent to your Kindle. YAY!!
You can also put the Kindle app on your computer, and smart phone — having a Kindle gets you some perks but you don’t have to go buy one to use it as a reader!!

A friend dropped by to say hello this evening.
We had a good weekend. We are still at the mercy of the job and not yet on the road but I am just letting it go and taking this time to enjoy friends and explore places in NC that after a few years of living year I’ve overlooked.
I showed my 81 year old friend how to text and send pictures to her daughter with her phone. It is an old flip phone — I told her she needed a smart phone, she said “I have one, it is in a box.” LOL
Hung out with more good friends and had a fantastic salad at THE GOAT in Fearrington Village — you get this ticket, check off what you want, the gals behind the counter fill this bowl with your goodies – then put it all into a “chopping bowl” and chop and mix it all up and then they put it back into your bowl. Next time I am skipping the lettuce. I always say that then I always forget — after WLS lettuce is dead to me – I pick around it and it really is more time consuming. I just want the protein and the toppings!! =)
If you’ve never seen Galloway Cows — they look like OREOS … gorgeous Scottish oreos — recently some dunn belties were born!!
We also got to visit with the other Lynn Ann and her hubby Ron this weekend. *hugs* Always a good time.
I discovered also that Sonic now has SF flavor syrups. Plain tea was transformed into glorious Raspberry deliciousness complete with nugget ice. =)
What did you do this weekend?
