More from Despicable Daines

I  got  an email asking if  I thought  it  should be  a crime  to  'desecrate'  the  flag.  My response:

"Talking about the sanctity of  a  piece of  cloth, symbol of a  nation  or  not, is laughable coming  from a country, congress and  president who  tears  children apart from their  families, then  cites  the Bible as justification.   How long before you and  the  other  GOP  minions  have to  stand  to  attention when your fuhrer speaks?"

The Principal, and the child who won't learn

Look  at his posture, the  arms  crossed  in  defense, the  embarassed/guilty  look,  and  Ms. Merkel, looking  disgusted  and unbelieving.  She  is an example  of how  the world  views  us now, through the lens  of  donald trump.


We have no one  to blame but  ourselves.   For  the  genuine trump supporters  that  have  stuck  with him  through  his litany  of some  genuine  crimes,  and total  lack  of  morality, there  is  nothing to say. Hopefully, you'll  have  to soon  crawl  back  under  your rocks  and mutter to each other.

To  those  who chose him  over  Clinton, or  didn't  vote because 'they  didn't  like  either of  them', to  both I say you are culpable in this, it  is your fault. It  shows a lack  of  judgement  on  your  part, and  a real  ignorance of  the  world.

To those  who've (big edit here which  clearly  went awry  again)  didn't  supported him,  you  need to redouble  your  efforts, and  elect  representatives  who  won't  support him,

Lilac time in MT

The whole town seems one  big  lilac bush, they are everywhere, and  will bloom  about a week  or  so.  You  can hardly escape the  fragrance.

The Cheeseburger

Though we had several good meals  at home, and  one outstanding Italian restaurant visited, one of the only pictures  I have is of a cheeseburger I went a  tad overboard with the additions...bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, avacado, etc.


There was groaning, and loosening of belts. It was great.

Highland Mtns

Yesterday my friend L.  and  I drove on a loop  through the Highlands, just south of  Butte. It's about 20 miles  of  single-track dirt road. 




We did  it  late morning, a good  thing because a  couple  hours  later  some impressive T-storms rolled through and  heavy  rain. The  road would  have been  a  muddy  slog.
