182nd post

CONTINUED FROM LAST EVENING.... I believe that Grandmother had a special chair as most head of households do (Grandfather left the family forever some years ago), maybe just past the phone and to the southwest corner of the living room, but I'm just guessing and her chair could have been at any one of the four sides or corners of the living room. The house (probably built by my Grandfather) was sparce, typical of depression era homes, and I don't exactly know what grandmother's source of income was.... You all know how you use to pretend when you were kids? Well, let's pretend that we'll get to my Grandparents on time for Sunday dinner so set back and enjoy the distractions along the way.... TO BE CONTINUED.... FROM "Donald Trump showed Saturday that he was not retreating on illegal immigration by declaring in Iowa that "on day one, I'm going to begin swiftly removing criminal illegal immigrants from this country. "We're going to send them back to where they came from," the Republican presidential nominee said at Sen. Joni Ernst's annual "Roast and Ride" event in Des Moines. "On this path, we will always err on the side of protecting American people...." "(And) Hillary Clinton on Friday received a pivotal endorsement as the International Brotherhood of Teamsters announced that the Democratic nominee should be the nation's next president. The Teamsters General Executive Board says it unanimously voted to endorse the former senator and secretary of state. "We are proud to endorse Hillary Clinton for President of the United States. She is the right candidate for the middle class and working men and women across the country," Teamsters General President James P. Hoffa said." I was in the union when I worked for the Post Office as a letter carrier in Orrville, Ohio and the union thru any means possible tried to get you to vote Democratic. Not me, I always voted for the other side (Republican). And there ain't no one going tell me who to vote for. You see, I'm an American and I'm free. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia....

And quotes by John Adams from "Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide." "Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence." "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." From goodreads.... “I love to watch Summer Sky, Flashy yet calm. It feels I'm one of them... Sometime it seems they are streaming down!” ― Irfa Adam I made three videos in the last several days and I'm waiting on YouTube to provide some answers to some questions I've asked of them before I upload to their site. But I still need to video the flower beds that I've worked so hard on and talked about. We had a torrential downpour last evening so I won't have to water the flowers this morning so maybe if the sun appears in the east, I'll have time to do the video today?
