My Youngest

Been watching, as I'm sure you all have, the current state with North Korea, and our nut of a president. We're in a position we haven't been in since 1962, with Cuba.

My thoughts turn tonight to my youngest, Emily. The one perhaps the most like me, which may not be a compliment.

I enclose a picture of her that made the top of the fold in the Seattle Times, when the WTO was in Seattle.

She's the one that isn't shielding her face.

And the song, by the Cranberries, which always make her think of me and my other girl.

Love you kids, all of you. 


  1. Significantly, during the Cuban Missile Crisis, the U.S. had a president and advisors who were deliberative, rational and intelligent. Not so with the arrogant and irrational egotist we have now, up against another equally demented nut with his finger on the button.

  2. It is a scary time and a trouble world our kids are inheriting

  3. Practically everything this president does seems to bode poorly for our heirs.
    He is inappropriate and unfit to handle the duties.

  4. This is he worst of times - until tomorrow when who knows what else these two horrible, crazy, egotistical men will do.

  5. You have every reason to be proud of your daughter, Mike. My hope for the future is with this generation.
    Your analysis of B's is spot on though socialism did lay some impressive groundwork in the late 19th at the beginning of the Progressive era.
    My cutthroat picture was actually on the Lamar. It was my first trip to Montana tagging along with my brother in July doing his elk scouting for bow hunting season. The black waders were my volunteer firefighter equipment. I was hook on flyfishing and return many times from then on with my two sons...:)

  6. Guam is lost if fire and brimstone continues to carry on. I hope there is sanity among our generals. And courage.

  7. To whoever Unknown is, unless you start using your name/nic your comments will be deleted.

  8. I liked the arrows for their help in organizing your notes.
