Burying Mom

Barbara Ellen’s aging mom was buried the other day. Now comes the hard part.

Mom wanted to be planted in a box. Dad preferred cremation. So his nine-year-old ashes were put in the box with her. Her remains, that is, as hard as that idea would be to deal with under normal circumstances.

They are the lips that kissed us, the hands that caressed us, and the arms that encircled us when we needed them.

It was made “tremendously comforting,” however, by two dreams her Dad brought her shortly before Mom passed. One was of him telling her to get the dying over with and come along. Mom had the same dream that same night but it included the detail that he was waiting to go dancing. Bar’s other dream was of a crowd of people with him waiting for Mom to come along. She recognized some of them, including her great grandmother.

Still, Mom is gone from our sight and that is the hard part. After many months dying she is suddenly gone. Everything has changed.

One Giant Flop for Moviekind

“Forget The Right Stuff. This is The Neurotic StuffFirst Man drains the triumph, the exhilaration, the excitement, and the meaning from Neil Armstrong’s exemplary life in favor of a jittery, anxious, tragedy-soaked account deliberately designed to deny its audience any sense of transcendence.”

Then, the other day, the Brit actress who plays Armstrong’s suffering wife takes a liberal shot at President Trump. Thank you, dear, for saving me the price of your movie. From the bottom of my wallet.

Yep, that’s where most of anti-gunner, anti-oil Beto’s $38 million campaign bucks came from, the part that isn’t direct from Soros. And it’s one reason why he’s well behind Cruz in the polls.

UPDATE:  Beto’s got more than $70 millon now. Lotsa Carribean vacations coming up, eh Beto?

McCain Excess

Gay Patriot (whose blog has closed down) on Twitter: “I don’t like an America that makes demigods out of our politicians.”

Especially shallow, class-less, vindictive Saint McCain.

So perfect that the crooked groper Biden eulogized him.

The (fortunately) dumb bomber

The late Mark Anthony Conditt started out scaring people in Austin and the rest of Texas for almost three weeks with his sometimes deadly, always crippling, porch and roadside bombs. He even picked up the pace the last few days of his life. Fortunately.

For instead of being patient and taking his time, he stupidly sent two bomb packages through FedEx. Thus he cooked his own goose. Fortunately for us he and most of the rest of these killers are usually pretty dumb despite their seeming expertise.
