Sometimes I Don't Understand The System

December 16, 2012

Good morning.  I'm at work and soon will be on my way home.  Today is when the wet and maybe white stuff will be starting, and lasting for several days.  Oh goodie, goodie. 

Yesterday, I purposely did not mention anything about that nutcase who killed all those children.  It makes me sick to think that someone would take their anger out on innocent chldren.  It gets even sicker when you think that once this person is caught, we are going to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to give them a "fair" trial. 

I don't understand why we can't just shoot this person when he is caught.  (If he hasn't already been caught.)  He will be so proud of his deeds that he will gladly brag about what he did.  So why should we spend all that time and money on a trial?   Maybe when folks do crimes like this, we should just stand them up against a wall and shoot them.  Who knows?  It might just cut down on this type of crime.  Nuff said.  If I get started on this, I might not shut up. 

I'm hoping to stop at a couple of stores this morning on my way home.  There are a couple of things I want to check out.  I saw an ad for a cute little padded doggie house that I want to look at.  Pogo might like something like this.  Next, I want to pick up a couple of new little sweaters for him, and maybe another fleecy blanket and a couple of new toys.  Except for my fruit baskets, this will finish off my shopping.

I got an email from Su's daughter last night.  She said that Su might be coming home from the hospital today.  Well that will certainly be wonderful.  Su has such a beautiful smile, and I miss it!

Tomorrow I will post the next two parts of "A Child's Xmas".  Once Su is feeling up to it, she will be able to post her parts for you.  After that, we might take a break for a few weeks so that Su can build up her strength.  If we do, I will still make some freebies for you.

Now it's time for me to check on the Mrs again and then get ready to go home.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Lucky for us, Edna, he shot himself. I can only imagine why! He really was sick and only a child himself (20 years). I wonder if anyone knew he was so violent and could have stopped this. We really don't have very good mental health support in this country. Most of our homeless are people with mental health issues and no support system. Oh my ... let's change the subject.

I am off to lunch today with my best friend from the hospital where I used to work. She is an administrator now and working on her PHD. Oh, to be young again ... would I do things differently, yes and no. There are some regrets that I would like the chance to redo, but for the most part, I did the best I could and all is well for the moment.

Izzi got her message yesterday. She wasn't sure what to think ... I always play with her when she is lying down ... we kind of rough house and I grab her feet and she pretend bites. Well, she thought that the masseuse was playing with her and wanted to roll around and push with her paws and pretend bite ... it took some doing, but she finally got her rubbies and was much more relaxed when we left.

This week is package wrapping time. I am finished shopping thankfully, but I always find when I am wrapping that I may have forgotten something. I better get busy because time is running out.

You on the other hand, have it all under control ... smart lady that you are. I would love to live in your skin for just a week so I could get soooooo organized. You are amazing, all that you accomplish. I am glad that Su is coming home and doing better. I hope she well enough to enjoy her holidays home with family. I have said a little prayer for her. You talk of her bright smile ... does she live close to you and do you see each other? You may have mentioned it, but I didn't put it together.

Well, I must go do some last minute fix me ups to look pretty for my outing. Izzi is mournful because she can tell I am headed out. She will be glad when all of this holiday stuff is over and we can get back to her Frisbee, Frisbee life. You have a great day Edna ... see you tomorrow :)

Boy did we get lucky that that monster took the cowards way out! saved us a lot of money prosecuting him, but I hope the media realizes that the sensationalism is why so many of these "desensitized" people of today do what they do. That is the only way they feel they can leave a mark in this day and age! It is very sad indeed, the way the world is changing (not for the good)!
I need to step down from my soapbox too, before I get unwound on this subject! LOL!
Hope your Monday is a terrific one!
Hugs, Mat
