244th post



Father driving again near the swamp and across the road is a fenced in small

pond where frogs and tadpoles live. I just don't remember fishing, frog gigging

or tadpole catching with a butterfly net. We just looked into that pond thru the

the fence like we where at the zoo.

Father kept driving up the inclined dirt lane and I could see the center tree in the

middle of the turn-around drive and I saw some black guineas, maybe four more

or less, eating insects from the ground. 

Father parked the car and went over to open the door for Mother with baby Jerry

in her arms as we jumped out and ran to our grandparent's house. I noticed a 

cistern on the left as we hurried to the and someone greated us at the door with

a smile and warm greeting. She wore a white apron and was about my height

and I'll tell you tomorrow who this woman was....

You know, sometimes it takes only one person to take you down some.

I went Walmart again to buy a new computer so I would have one for

myself. Facebook, for some unknown reason me, does not allow more than 

one person on the same computer. I also wanted to stock up on canned fish,

fruit and vegetables. And you know how it is. I bought other things I didn't 

think I needed, but I did need, like Turtle Car Wax to wax Mother's Honda and

rags to remove the wax once it dried, items on clearance like artichoke hearts

and in the end I forgot something I really wanted to get and that was Hearts

of Palm. 

If I had only went down the ailes where the items I wanted where at, I would have

been out of the store in a flash, but I didn't, so I have only myself to blame for that.

Well, getting back to what I said at first about "it takes only one person to take 

you down some." Everyone was friendly with warm smiles and excuse me's 

and because I spent so much time going down almost every, I saw some people 

twice and smiling responses from them or me were "are you following me." 

You know how it is when you come face to face with a person and initially you 

don't know which way to go and I usually just say excuse me or "you want a dance."

There was a thin, tall man dressed in red of the Ohio State Buckeyes and his son

who follow was dressed the same. I was at the fish section and maybe a little bit

in the way and instead of  saying excuse me, which is proper, he became angry

and rushed to the next aisle. I that point I said something I have never said before.

Please forgive me. I don't know if he or his son heard it or not, but I doubt if 

the son's Father much cared. Angry Father and a now and future angry son.

As I checked out, there was a friendly young woman behind me in line and we 

had time to talk off and on because I had a cart full of items and the cashier was

having difficulty ringing up a sale item. I gave her a business card as I was about 

to leave and she said "thank you" and I said "thank you."

I thought as I left the store with my cart full of items, after the angry man and his 

angry son, it takes just one friendly person to restore your faith in human nature.

We know that the headlines above are from Newsmax, a conservative news 

web site who want, naturally, for Trump to be elected President.

But Newsmax also report news that favor Clinton: 

1. Poll: Clinton Heavily Favored to Win Electoral College. Everyday there is a

new poll out of probably hundreds that are taken. So this headline to me holds 

no value.

2. Poll: Clinton Leads by 7 Points as Trump Faces Grope Claims and then

3. Biden: Bill Clinton's Scandals 'Shouldn't Matter'. Why shouldn't his scandals

matter? Rape was mentioned and that's a felony. Just like his wife, Hillary who 

is running for President, she has been accused of a felony, too, and like I said 

yesterday groping is not a felony.

So, I've told you my truth, of the few Newsmax headlines that are for Clinton, 

and finally you know who I'm voting for.

The art of war is simple enough. Find out where your enemy is. Get at him as soon 

as you can. Strike him as hard as you can, and keep moving on.

I know only two tunes: one of them is 'Yankee Doodle', and the other one isn't.

Although a soldier by profession, I have never felt any sort of fondness for war, 

and I have never advocated it, except as a means of peace.

We are going to have "Indian Summer" for the next week or so, so I should

have plenty of time to drop the 4 bags of black mulch in the back flower beds, 

plant the flower bulbs, plant the last of the fall grass seed that I have, divide

the large fern and plant the resulting separations (maybe 10 or so) into almost 

all of the flower beds on the property.
