It Figures

The weather has been really hot for the last few weeks, so I took the winter spread off the bed and replaced it with a lighter summer weight cover.

Last night, the overnight temps were in the 50s. I had to go get a blanket.

All Grown Up!

Eldest Daughter has gone south to help her daughter and son-in-law get moved into their new house.  We were all really concerned that the little ones would have a hard time settling into their new “digs”. From this shot, it seems things are going quite smoothly, thank you.

And all of a sudden, the baby of the family is a young man! (And I wish I could figure out how to resize this picture!)

On Tyranny

I am currently reading a book by the above title, written by Timothy Snyder. He points out the various methods by which dictators in the twentieth century have come to power – all of them by legal means.  I’m just going to quote one small section:

“We believe that we have checks and balances, but rarely have we faced a situation like the present: when the less popular of the two parties controls every lever of power at the federal level, as well as the majority of statehouses. The party that exercises such control proposes few policies that are popular with society at large, and several that are generally unpopular – and thus must either fear democracy or weaken it.”

Hie thee to the public library. This is some serious stuff.
