Overload. Heading to the Deck.


Human jackals are looting the crash site of the MalaysianAir passenger plane, shot down with missile fire by who knows.  There is escalated ethnic cleansing of Christians in Iraq by ISIS, without comment from the Obama administration.  On the same day, within hours of one another, two federal Circuit Courts issued conflicting rulings on Obamacare's individual mandate and premium subsidies, thus suggesting an expedited hearing by the Supreme Court on the law's future with a scary, unpredictable CJ Roberts in the fold. And my babiest baby has yet to recover emotionally from having to put her precious pup, Zeus, down.

And, it appears that chipmunks love to devour green cherry tomatoes.  Even those planted in containers. Alvin has ceased to be cute.

Have I mentioned how very peaceful is the view from my back deck when the trees are leafed out?



  1. It was about this time two years ago that we had to put down my Great Dane, Zoe. It makes me cry just to think about it now.

  2. So sorry, Lou. This aw an especially hard decision for Younger Daughter. Sh may never recover. Hope you have.

  3. It's a chore to submit a comment on the iPad.

  4. I sympathize with Younger Daughter. I just read something recently that said (I'm paraphrasing) "Dogs come into our lives to teach us about love and leave us to teach about loss." I nodded my head north-south when I read that.

    As for your deck... That was always my favorite space back in the day when I actually HAD a deck. Once again: I relate.
