Still Hot Summer


What a week! Relatives came to visit, family gatherings and trips, special meals, much conversation; lots packed into two days. Sorry they couldn’t stay longer.

Now back to real life. Trump and crowd are doing their usual thing. The Republicans in Congress have discovered what most already knew; trying to pass legislation that the constituencies of many members don’t like can lead to shortened terms. What will we hear after the 4th of July at home?

Early the President still wakes up and gets mad at people he can’t fire. Comments are mostly what you would find at all male clubs. The papers have him going to European conference where he will meet with Vladimir Putin. Heaven only knows what will come of that, given that it is reported he has basically taken us out of union with Europe.

I’m trying to learn the various features of a mobile phone. A good part of that so far involves calling friends and family members. I am reluctant to pursue that for too long with one person; how long can I lean on good will. The fourth of July is upon us and the neighborhood party is leading to people trying to find out what food items other people will bring.
