High Kicks Not City Riots

This is when on the Washington D.C. Mall there were high kicks and not riots. 

It was a carefree spot and not a war zone. 

The city wasn’t filled with anger but with hope. 

Politicians weren’t giving each other a kick in the ass every day, but rather reaching across the aisle to try and get something done. 

The country was trying to go forward, but now it’s having trouble keeping up with the problems caused by China, Russia, North Korea, and Iran. 

Then we stood tall and wore our colors proud, today we wonder about the crisis of the day and what tomorrow will bring. 😉

A Birdhouse For Every Bird

It feels like there are almost more choices here for a birdhouse then variations in dwellings you can buy.

Even if it just a little paint; sometimes that can make all the difference. 

Frankly, it’s not even that important how big or small, just as long as you have a decent roof over your head. 

In our crazy world, we can have a birdhouse for every bird, but still we don’t have homes for every person. 

Homelessness and poverty, whatever your race, color, or identity is still a big problem. 

Birds live in birdhouses, but many people still live on the streets.  😉

Destruction Site

If there’s a construction site, then there can certainly be a destruction site. 

Most of the time, it seems like more destruction than construction really going on. 

It’s amazing how a construction job on one corner can take more than a whole year, when they built the entire U.S. highway system in not such a long time. 

Now-a-days, money just goes down the sinkhole with the littlest jobs taking seemingly forever and the costs spiraling out of control. 

Hello, is anyone out there managing this stuff?  

Oh right, it’s all funny money anyway.  

Let’s just keep printing some more. 😉

@Hagerstown Outlets

We went shopping today at the Hagerstown Outlets.

Two things struck me:

1) The deals on beautiful brand name clothing was unbelievable!

2) So many stores have closed during Covid; what a darn shame what’s happened to our small businesses. 

Anyway, it’s an adventure to go to the outlets, and hard not to spend when the deals are all around you. 

The best is to get gifts for the people you love!  😉

Porsche Branded Excellence

I have never seen such a clean garage.

Whether on the ground or suspended on the lift, the cars are immaculately cared for. 

Porsche displays excellence in every aspect of their brand. 

The perception is tangible and real!  😉

Spuds and Suds

Potatoes and trash, not a tasty combination. 

At least if you’re gonna do this, don’t show your customers! 

Maybe there’s a rational explanation (as in “Lucy, splain dat to me!”):

The potatoes fell on the floor, and the broom and pan where there to clean them up.

Hey, once you peel them, what difference does it make anyway! 

Yeah, sure that works. 😉
