Fewer political posts....

You might have noticed that I'm doing less of the politically bent posts. The reason is twofold;, one, one of the bloggers we all follow, Tom Cochrun of Light Breezes does it better, is a better writer and has a deeper understanding of the issues than do I. And, it's preaching to the choir here. If there is a trump supporter in the readers of my blog, they don't comment, therefore they don't exist to me.

So that's why. Not to say I won't at some point, if like Obie, I think there is a point.

Now, nary a backward look as she's off to the school bus.

One of my favorite actors

Powers Boothe, 1948-2017

One of my favorite actors, especially for his role in "Tombstone"......He and Val Kilmer stole the show.
