yo look at this
This flyer caught my eye the other day
This last weekend was nice and cool, I am still waiting for spring to get here, end the cold and snow already will ya.
I went for a walkabout today, around town, threw town. Yep that did not take long at all. I did stop by the farmers market for a 50 cent muffin, was worth every bit. Homemade can take over the world.
The real reason for getting out, other than I feel as I am getting fat. Is today in town the old folks home is up for closing. The house needs upgrades on a few areas, there are only 30 or so people still there and well we are dealing with political leaders of the community. The one thing that I have never understood is how we (society) place such a hype on being safe. These are the people, more importantly the generation who lived with war, chain smoking and asbestos. Now the house they live in is being closed for having outdated fire equipment and is old...Hello who is living there. OK point taken, when I hit this age, I do not care if the alarm system is not going to wake me if the
let my people keep this home
I like becomin gpart of the crowd. There are trade offs, I could read the signage but the cops, well there were none...I missed Germany at this point.
house is on fire, I would rather not know.
Well, in true style I joined the people in the futile attempt to save the house that these distinguished people call home. I have an understanding that people can gather together and voice there discontent, nothing will happen. Have the same number of people standing at each intersection with signs letting the world know what a dush bag the political leaders are, and not to vote for them in the next election, this will get more attention. Unfortunately all I can say is that the day went past with out an incident.
I spent a bit of time after the speeches ended milling around until disappointment soon took over with the crowd when it was realized that there were to be no tea or biscuits. I took off and took a few pictures of town until the battery's in the camera went dead. Then I headed over to Aldi for a bit to eat and home for my tea.
The night was spent with friends over for a long night of TV watching. It all started with a game of Rugby. I can and
love the stage
I was not to sure if this became eviction day or just a mobile stage. It was fun to participate, but fun to get home as well.
will say that I was happy to see Ireland win the game. But I have to say that it is in my heart, I long for a nice game of football (soccer), and Germany will still be my team.
That gets me up to Sunday, just read and played with the tin whistle. Monday, school was my center of attention. Thank god for college, I spent a hour reading poems in class. Yep, Education......
