Hmmm....

So we begin another day.

The deer are out back and have just left having eaten a few things. No problem here. They leave the flowers alone and that makes it fine by me.

Started the day off chasing DX

to no avail as things are dead now.

DX lately has been spotty because we are on the downside of the solar cycle. Better days are coming.

Last night I got asked to get a propane bottle filled for a neighbor and I will. She's a good neighbor has always been helpful.

Something came up and it occurred to me

that during my lifetime there were still a few surviving Civil War veterans.

I do remember a few Spanish American war vets and quite few WW1 veterans.

Of course, my parents were part of the WW2 generation.

Still, it shows we are not all that far removed from the Civil War as we think. In my lifetime I could have shaken the hand of a Civil War vet.

Happy Sattiddy.

Weekends mean little to sailors either at sea or ashore.

At sea means a work day, ashore means an off day and it really is as simple as that.

The motion detectors have


been going on and off for the last few hours until daylight.

It's either the deer of the raccoons.

The deer

The deer are funny this morning.

There is a doe out there with a pair of fawns and the fawns are like spirited little kids which is what I suppose they are.

It was not too terrible of a winter so the deer fared well. They are pretty well fed and are already pretty fat.

Right now we have a very confused Democratic party.

The #Justwalkaway movement is beginning to divide the Democratic party which wasn't hard to predict. Eventually SOMEONE had to start something as the Democrats are getting more and more socialist and militant. They are starting to alienate their base.

Most Democrats are not hardened socialists. They do want government to provide more services than the Republicans do but they are not outright socialists. Many of these guys have been working class people with Old School solid working class values that voted Democrat to insure things like Social Security, Unemployment and disability insurance didn't disappear even though Republicans knew to leave it well enough alone.

Many Democrats actually shared moderate Republican values and very possibly didn't realize it.

Over the years here in Pittsburgh I have met any number of Democrats that have constantly stuck up against gun control, and believed in a day's work for a day's pay. For decades I have wondered why they have always voted Democrat.

Truth is I believe it is because they are either too afraid or too lazy to sit down and think about what is going on now. It's much easier to simply trundle down the worn path of least resistance.
