When I first read this morning's headline that Bush was requesting $80 billion more to fight the "war on terror", I said to my daughter: "I know what I'll be writing about on my blog today!" But now it's after 4 in the afternoon and my boiling blood has calmed to a simmer. So I'll limit my comments on Bush (for today, at least) to this: Mr. Bush, why wasn't this request brought up BEFORE the election? After all, it was just over two months ago; surely you knew then what your plans were for January. Shame on you. You've been less than forthcoming with your constituents. It couldn't be that you knew the effect such a request would have had on the election, could it? Nah!!! A moral person wouldn't misrepresent himself in that way, and we all know that morals ruled the election.
Okay, enough . . . I'll make myself mad all over again. . .
Now the more pleasant thoughts . . . Today I went to lunch with 3 new friends from my writing group. We've been in the group together for a while, but this is the first time we've done something outside of the workshop. I enjoyed our lunch immensely! Such interesting people who help me to expand my mind. Thank you Linda, Don and Jeff!
I'm starting to believe that maybe someday I can really think of Florida as home, despite the rocky start . . .
