Last Night in El Paso!!!

Everything that could be packed is packed. A friend and my son are driving it up to NH.
My other son is flying up with me. All of us leave at 6 am.
So...posts will be a little sparse for a bit.
Follow me on twitter or if we are friends on facebook, look for my posts there.
My next great adventure starts now!

The Times, They Are A-Changing....

You'll notice a different look to my blog.
That is where I am moving to. Well, not right on the waterfall in the picture, but a scant 2 miles away.
Yeah. I saw the falls while I was there.
Beautiful, n'cest pas?
Now you know why I am so eager to get there!

Tedious Unending Waiting!

The closing process on the house is in full swing and what it mostly entails is..................waiting.
Only 2 or 3 more weeks and we'll be done and can move up.
Still....the waiting is the hardest part! (and how many of you sang that, lol!?)
So packing and waiting, waiting and packing...
A few random thoughts while I wait.....
TV has gone down hill. More and more commercials. Most of them for cars, insurance and shoes.
Why the shoes? I dunno. They show these closets big enough to be a decent sized bedroom FILLED with shelves and shelves of shoes! Who needs that many pair? Why do they have damn near skyscraper height heels?
My shoes: 1 pair Crocs, neon orange, 1 pair tennis shoes--light blue & gray, 1 pair hiking boots--brown, 1 pair dressy flats---black.
All I need. I will get some good winter boots and *muck* boots once I get up North, but other than that, I'm set.
The absolutely RIDICULOUS shoes they show in the commercials I couldn't wear to win a bet!
Yet they hammer away with those commercials, trying to convince each and every female out there that unless she has DOZENS of pairs of shoes she can't really be complete.
I guess if females want to believe that, they deserve all the corns and bunions they get. Also the back-aches and leg cramps.
Political correctness is running wild in this country.
People...get a grip.
I would like to introduce a brand new concept: Common Sense.
Pop Tarts are NOT guns, even if a kid is nibbling on one and it ends up very vaguely resembling one.
Hobby Lobby is not waging war on their female employees and their insurance pays for 16 forms of birth control still. What they did not want to pay for were abortficants, i.e., drugs that cause an abortion of an already existing pregnancy. Big difference.
The only reason liberals are screaming about Hobby Lobby is because they didn't want to pay for abortions and they are a Christian owned company. If it was a Muslim owned company, those idiot liberals would have applauded the decision.
I have come to the conclusion that if someone is a Liberal, they are suffering from a severe mental illness and are to be pitied. And need treatment. Lots and LOTS of treatment.
Especially Liberal women. They are the most strident and the most deluded of all..

My politics? I'm a Libertarian. I advocate freedom and...oh-my-say-it-ain't-so...self responsibility.
Other things annoying me this week...
I got a *smart* phone.
Mainly at the Darlin' Man's insistence.
Took me 2 days to figure out how to actually answer the darn thing.
I was able to download a game. Mah Jong. 
And I can take pictures and video with it. I have figured out how to take pictures. Videos, not so much.
So...back to waiting....
