Good morning. It's really quite nice, only 70 degrees at the moment. Later it will get up into the 80's, but for now it is just right for doing errands. Pogo and I have to go to the post office before my appointment at the nail salon.
The news channels have been chatting up a storm lately about the upcoming Democrat and Republican election conventions. Excuse me. But what is the purpose of these conventions? It used to be when each party chose their presidential candidates, but this year's candidates have been chosen for quite some time. We don't need conventions this year to do this.
So, is this just another way for government to spend an awful lot of money on fun stuff for the politicians? I am so disgusted with the politics we have in place. What used to be a means of electing the right person for the job has simply become a game where he who has the biggest bag of money wins. Sad, sad, sad.
The nasty mud slinging is very wearing too. Why can't individuals running for office do so on their merits alone? Why must we constantly be bombarded with all sorts of nasty accusations? And with so many important issues to be considered, why is it that both parties are in a battle to see which one can totally destroy the medicare system first? I won't even go into this one. I could be ranting for days.
How about some photos? I have two that I took a few days ago during a light rain. I am always fascinated with the beauty in raindrops on petals. These two lovelies are Evening Primrose.
Now that I've done a bit of ranting, I must get busy here and get dressed. Time is flying by, and we have to be leaving the house in about twenty minutes. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
