I didn't publish my original post. I'm so glad I didn't. It was all politics and one thing I've learned is to never discuss religion or politics with my friends. That's how we can all stay friends.
So, with that topic off the table, I'm looking around for a topic that would be just as rousing, just as exciting, just as open for comment and opinion. And, I'm finding nothing.
I'm sickened by what's going on in the Gulf of Mexico. I can say that without being political. I'm sick of war and infighting and mean people and murders. I'm bored with people being rude to one another. Sick of watching them zip through traffic with absolute disregard to the safety of others. Disgusted by those that would harm children or the elderly or animals or anybody else that can't defend themselves.
And, I'm trying to turn my thoughts to more pleasant things.
I want to think about what wonderful things are happening to Betty White. Can you believe the success she's having?
I want to think about yellow cake with white icing and toasted coconut. And, sweet custard chocolate pie with meringue.
I want to think about beautiful fabrics and how they can be combined into lovely works of quilt art.
I want to think about the potential for my daughter to be president...or at least a really successful dentist.
I want to think about new cars and new car smells and roadtrips to exotic and wonderful places.
I want new carpet. I want new clothes. I want more time to do the things that are important to me.
I want to make home made icecream with fresh peaches.
I want to eat more vegetarian meals.
I want it to be cool enough to leave the windows open for the breeze, and I want to reupholster my wing back chair.
I want everyone to be happy.
Somebody send me the magic lamp. I think I'm ready to make my three wishes now.
