Tuesdays

Mondays aren’t usually great for me. I much prefer Tuesdays.

It’s snowing today. Soft little flakes that come down so evenly, it makes you wonder if there is a big snow machine producing them. We have a little on the ground, but you can still see the grass through it. If it keeps falling all day though the grass will finally be covered.

Not much going on in these parts. I am working on a couple crocheted dishcloths, but nothing that warrants photographs yet.

I am looking forward to going to Heather’s this weekend for knitting. We all try to get together once-a-month.

The state of the onion is on tv tonite — more bs from bush — I cracked up yesterday when I heard someone saying on the radio about polls that have been taken – blank percent say the country is going in the wrong direction – blank percent think the war in Iraq is blank blank (I don’t remember the exacta percentages)and then they said “and over 80% think that president bush is stubborn”. I know that shouldn’t be funny. But he is stubborn. What exactly does it mean when the president says -I know that no one agrees with me but I am going to do it my way anyway? — can you say d.i.c.t.a.t.o.r.? What happened to “and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”(Abraham Lincoln-Gettysburg Address)

    Touche’, my dear, touche’. I couldn’t agree with you more. I am excited that both Hilary and Obama are in the running. If they end up being the lead two contenders for the Democratic candidate position, it should be an interesting race! 🙂

    Snowed a pinch here yesterday but melted off– I’ll probably get what you have later today or tomorrow.

    I have been wondering that (the lincoln quote) since November 2000.

    I certainly feel like my govt. doesn’t give a rat’s ass that I exist. my reps are working for big business and not for ME.

    as john lennon sang, “say you wanna revolution”.

    so far, the declared candidates have my interest – on BOTH sides. I try to listen to both sides with an open mind, then make my choice.

    the next 2 years will be VERY interesting indeed.

    let’s take back our country, people!

    Hmmmmm….

    Interesting you use a quote from Lincoln…Probably the most hated President of his time…People were saying pretty much the same things about/to him (probably worse even) back then, and look where that got him in the history books…

    And isn’t history usually the deciding factor of politics???

    And why not quote the whole speech…it was only 5 minutes long:

    ‘Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
    Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
    But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate — we can not consecrate — we can not hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom– and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.’

    I guess our great-great-great-great grandkids will have to let us know how this one turns out.

    Have a great day and see you Saturday!!!!
