The good Sally

Back when I was a police reporter I covered fires and crime scenes at which the Salvation Army invariably showed up and dispensed coffee and donuts free of charge. Even to reporters. With no religious talk whatsoever.

I like to donate stuff to them instead of Goodwill with its high-paid executives, and will double-down on the commitment now that the Sally is under assault from the Left. Who isn’t?

“We believe we are the largest provider of poverty relief to the LGBTQ+ population,” The Salvation Army said in a statement after Chick-fil-A announced its decision [to stop contributing to them for their alleged discrimination]. As the Wall Street Journal concluded, “Considering it serves nearly 25 million people every year, that’s likely true.”

More painting

Doing Mr. B.’s room walls (Valpar’s Daisy Spell, a very light yellow) and Bright White baseboards and fixing the crown molding screwup. All in four hours, which is all I can have from the contractors until their schedule lightens up on Dec. 23.

Still to schedule: crown in the dining-living area and then more paint. And, of course, still awaiting delivery/installation of the red oak doors.

Horns win, Ags in trouble

So nice to see (hear, actually, as we don’t have a TV yet at the mini-rancho) the uneven Longhorns beat Tech by a whopping amount (49-24) after a four-game slump.

Now the equally benighted Aggies have to play No. 1 2 LSU. Doubtful they’ll rack up 49 points, much less beat the Tigers. But we shall see. Always hope in Aggieland.

UPDATE:  LSU 31, Ags 0 at the half. Ouch! I doubt the Horns could beat them, either.

More painting

More Honey Pecan wall and Bright White baseboards. Minor screwup on crown gets a fix next week when the room is painted Daisy Spell (very light yellow). Otherwise the crown is very nice and we’re going to take it next to the living dining room. These are Barbara Ellen’s color choices but I like them too. Next up: Crystal Pink and a kind of teal.

Crown up

Today’s the day the House of Fara crown molding goes up in the bedrooms, with more painting of some walls and baseboards. We’re moving right along in the renovation department. Pix to come.

Front-line Trump

Hundreds of rabbis, including the chief rabbis of Israel, have signed a letter to President Trump declaring him blessed for recognizing Israeli sovereignty.

“The presidents of the United States have had the merit of standing at Israel’s side, of partnering in the realization of the prophetic vision of the return to Zion and the rebirth of Israel. A rare privilege has now presented itself to you: To be the first American president to blaze the trail for recognition of Israel’s sovereignty over Jerusalem, the Golan Heights, and now, over the recognition of Israel’s sovereignty over the Jewish communities of Judea and Samaria.”

Trump, they said, will be remembered in Jewish history as a “man who stood on the front-lines, unafraid.”
