OK, NOW I Can Write...

I have a break! Thank you very much for your patience.

1. My dad is doing very well. Thanks for any and all prayers and well-wishes.

2. My friend (Zen Buddhist) is still in the process of moving, which is why I'm exhausted and we're still plugging away. The place she bought was termite-ridden and the workmen had to tear down a lot of wood, put up a lot of drywall, do a lot of spackling and ripping stuff up, then putting it back together. Additionally, they had to install a closet, a kitchen counter and sink, and carpet in the living room. We were painting, cleaning, fetching, carrying, and doing any and all odd jobs they needed us to do. It will be done tonight, thankfully.

3. It's interesting to see the fallout from the Walter Reed Hospital debacle, isn't it? Now Army surgeon general Lt. Gen. Kevin C. Kiley has resigned. Heads are rolling (deservedly).

The termite ridden house will require a lot less to fix than DONALD RUMSFELD'S mess.

The VA outpatient care has sucked for a long time. It sucked during Vietnam, and was never fixed.

The reason it is a big deal now, and not in the 90's, was that Clinton did not create 20,000 and counting wounded veterans.

There is plenty of money to give to KBR, Blackwater, Level 3, GE, and all the other defense contractors - but none for outpatient care. Just one or two of the hundred billion plus given to the contractors last year would have built a brand new facility with golden toilets.

The sooner we get rid of everyone in the executive branch the better.

Glad to hear that your dad is doing ok ... it's hard to see a loved one in hospital.
Wow, termites throughout a house ... gonna take a lot of repairing, I guess.
Hope you get some time to relax soon.
Take care, Meow
