This is your passive-aggressive hint to…

…put some music on satty-lite radio. The GG is responsible for turning on satty-lite radio at the end of the day. 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, country, folk, whatever. I don’t really know how to “do” it. My laptop doesn’t connect to our “pod” or whatever it is. I am tech savvy. I could learn this. But it’s something I like him to do. I never know what music he’s going to choose next.

Instead of asking him for “music”, I’ve been turning up National Petroleum Radio so he can actually hear it. He complains that it’s “socialist” radio. I’m not sure if he really believes that or if he’s just harassing me. I’m still trying to figure out why people think that AOC and Bernie are going to magically change our EXTREMELY complicated culture into socialism overnight and I highly doubt that even George Soros has enough cash to fund such a gargantuan endeavor. I fear the Orange Baboon’s unhinged “base” more, what with their flaunting of guns and refusal to wear masks even though masks have now been proven to slow the virus from spreading.

Make no mistake. I am not anti-gun at all. I *own* guns, albeit inherited ones that I hope I never feel like I need to learn to use. I think there are situations in which guns are appropriate and I know and love people who enjoy using them responsibly. I don’t believe it’s a good thing for elected officials to flaunt them inside the nation’s capitol building. On the other hand, I am a STRONG mask proponent (just ask the GG). People who refuse to wear masks often don’t seem to understand the science behind viruses and NO THIS IS NOT THE “REGULAR” “FLU”. Mask-refusers are endangering other people’s lives. This HAS to change.

I spent the last part of my workday rolling my eyes at a loverly little cFam “drama” that was unfolding on the GG’s phone out in the back room. It was a first world drama (in a way) and I won’t go into detail except to say that even though I could only hear the GG’s side of the convo, I knew what was happening.

I will say that there are a whole helluva lotta people in this country who don’t understand what the $600 COVID relief checks are FOR. Like they are not “bonuses” or some kind of fun money. They are to pay bills and buy food and whatever.

I will go a bit further to say that I wish there were some “requirements” surrounding who gets them. The GG and I are not Warren Buffett and it was nice to get a little boost to our finances but we didn’t need it. It would be better to target payments to those who do and maybe give them a little more than a token $600. There are MANY folks in our country who need more than that. But our country is in the throes of various crises and although I am not all that trustful of polly-ticians, I think we are doing the best we can under the circumstances. I hope we can start repairing some damage after next week. I am only somewhat optimistic.

The photo is not tonight. Although it is quite warm tonight, it isn’t foggy at all.

    I got $319 and didn’t need it either, although I’m sure I’ll find a way to spend it. Last time I donated part of my stimulus to Joe Biden’s campaign. 🙂 NPR is considered one of the least partisan news sites out there.

    I’m going to donate my stimulus check to 6 different charities or non-profits: ACLU, Planned Parenthood, Urban League of St. Louis, Forest Park Forever, Tower Grove Park, and the Little T.
