I was hoping to get rid of my Pink P*ssy Hat at a Bad Santa Gift Exchange but nobody wanted it. The more I observe some of the miserable women who wear them, the more I want to get rid of the darn thing but I paid good money for it.

Right now, my attitude is that of someone in the Religious Society of Bad Friends and Bad 12 Steppers but won't stop me from picking up my 41 year medallion. Last month, a dubious friend called me and asked me if I would help her rent out her property. I was perfectly willing to do it as a friend but since she was willing to compensate me for my time, I didn't say no.

This involved making phone calls, getting keys made, showing the house, and raking leaves. I observed the dubious friend making prospective tenants jump though hoops for the privilege of renting the house. She quoted outrageous fees for anyone who wanted pets. When the previous property manager forgot to give her the right keys, the dubious friend called the police on the woman. My thought.....a bit extreme and not my values.

The place is finally rented. I took a picture of the meter so that the lady could get the electricity set up, got the paperwork together so that she could get water set up with the city, and met the lady at the house, handed her the keys, ad infinitum.

The dubious friend left a text that she would not be available until 6 the next day so I left her an e-mail with an update of the situation. The next day, she calls "Boni Your communication skills are terrible, therefore I am withholding the fee. She goes on and on about my poor communication skills." It's no secret that I have a hearing disability and phones are difficult for me. Still, I could tell that she was ranting and hammering. I finally told her enough is enough. Bye!!!

Finally, she wants an itemized statement with an hourly wage. I sent her an itemized statement with the agreed upon fee. If she continues to vilify me as an excuse to not pay the fee, it's her lack of integrity that is the issue not my poor communication skills.

So my plan is to take that pink hat that I couldn't get rid of at the Bad Santa Gift Exchange - stick it in a Grinch Covered Box and Mail it to her. She is the perfect person for it. People like her are the reason why I would rather wear a MAGA hat than a Pink P*ssy Hat

All Those Jobs Going to MEXICO

Corporate America is always going to go where the money is. U.S, citizens don't want to for overpriced cars and it's not surprising that G.M. opted to move to Mexico.

The plus side is that the Mexican citizens are able to sustain their families by working for G.M. instead of coming here illegally to pick our strawberries.

Trump should encourage G.M. to build plants in Central America. Mexico is not too thrilled with Central Americans caravanning across thier country to storm our borders.

Maybe if G.M. moves to Central American - The Railroad Company will build a route for the Crazy Train so that some of the nut cases can join them in Central America. They will have to blast a tunnel through the wall and figure out how to do it legally.

Offensive Terms for Vegans

Some folks think we to stop saying phrases like, “bringing home the bacon” and “putting all your eggs in one basket,” because it’s offensive to vegans.

“Offensive” phrases include “killing two birds with one stone,” “take a bull by the horns,” “open a can of worms,” “let the cat out of the bag” and “flogging a dead horse.”
But don’t worry! There are viable alternatives. We just to shake things up. For example, instead of saying, “killing two birds with one stone,” we could simply say, “feeding two birds with one scone.” See? SAME THING!
“Bringing home the bacon?” No no! How about, “bringing home the bagels

Whenever I make bone broth, I always throw in a few chicken feet that looking like they are climbing among the vegetables and crying "let me out! let me out...…………"

Grumbletonian and TDS

A political nickname for one who opposed the policies of the Orange KING

The origin of the word comes from King William III also know as William of Orange. The modern day counter-part is all those folks who are afflicted with TDS and hate all things Trump.

TDS is an advanced form of grumbletonian!!! And too many people are suffering from it!!!!

So what rights is Trump taking away from the United States Citizens? Do you think he intends to reverse Brown versus the Board of Education? Is he going to appeal the 19th Amendment? Perhaps he is going to fire the eagle and will make Carrot and Peas the National Birds. We can all eat crow instead.

Washington DC, Bunkbeds, Lobbying & Suggestion for NY Congresswoman Elect

I am currently in Washington D.C. for a FCNL Lobbying Event. Both West Virginia Senators support the bill which makes it easy, we can thank them for thier support, add a few suggestions and move on to other issues.

We are staying at the William Penn House and it seems to be "put the old broads on the top bunk" time. Oh what fun! One of the younger women offered to change beds which we will do tomorrow but for tonight, my senior azzzzzz made it up that top bunk so it's staying put. My lobbying buddy is having problems with the snoring. We are sharing a dorm with 10 women. I take out my hearing aids and don't hear a thing.

I was thinking about the New York Senator Elect who was expressing the fact that she couldn't afford an apartment in DC because she wouldn't get paid until three months after getting in office.

We are sending her suggestion to stay at the William Penn House. It is walking distance from the Capitol with Senate and Congressional Buildings on either side. There is a great old time breakfast café a few blocks away and one more block is a really great Shakespearean Theatre. There is no smoking, drinking, or television at the William Penn House. There is an optional Silent Worship in the morning.

If the accommodations are too simple at WPH, there are other hostels with mixed dorms, television, booze is allowed and even marijuana which is legal in
Washington D.C

Footnote to Scotland Lassie - I am not being written out of my Quaker Worship Group or the FCNL because of my Republican Status. In fact, my newly acquired Republican Boyfriend is accompanying me to one of our potlucks.

Now that Labor Day, Halloween, Veteran's Day and Thanksgiving have passed, it is time to think about Christmas, Yule, Hanukkah, Winter Solstice - Ad Infinitum.....

I have a fiber optic tree that I plug in every year. The Grinch has an honored place on my tree along with O'Malley the Elf. I don't allow anyone to be mean to O'Malley. Not even the Grinch. Do you think that O'Malley and the Grinch would get along with Trump or would you rather put Hillary on your tree?

Saturday, the Republican called and asked me out to dinner. We drove to the Chinese Restaurant and I told him the story of Sushi. Dip it in Wasabi to lure passion into your life. He said that he would find another way to attract passion. Apparently he was not a fan of Sushi.

He asks, "What do you usually do on a Saturday Night?" Dah, I am usually at home in my jammies reading a book or spending entirely too much time surfing the net. I suggested that we go to the movies, find a romantic movie and cuddle. I really haven't been keeping track of movies - but we had a choice between Creed II or The Grinch! We opted for the Grinch - my choice. I hope I don't scare him off with the consequences of my choices. Afterwards, what else is there to do on a Saturday night. I suggested a romantic cup of coffee. We stopped at the Irish Pub and ordered two decaf coffees with cream and talked politics until it was time to go home.

I was telling him that I am trying to help a girlfriend who lives out of state but trying to rent her house. Could I borrow a rake from him to clear the leaves out of her yard?

I called him Sunday to get the rake and he volunteered to help. I am totally willing and capable of raking that yard, but there were a lot of leaves. I was hoping that he would volunteer.

I am totally gratefully that he helped. It would have taken me several hours and I would have been working in the dark totally tempted to say Firetruck the entire time.

I told him, I really needed to reward him for all his help. Perhaps, later this week, a romantic dinner at April's Pizzeria. "Sure, as romantic as April's can be, he replied. "Darling, we BRING the romance. What's he going to do when I start suggesting nude beaches or even better a nude wedding. Trump married a woman who did some nude modeling so maybe the Republican can deal with a former exotic dancer. Time will tell!

The Man From Antifa Declares Me A Fascist!!!

It is funny how I've managed to maintain friendships with conservatives for years. There was always mutual respect despite the differences. So I made a choice to step over to thier side and let the name calling begin from the other side. This is precisely why I walked away from that side.

I date a man from Georgia years ago. We saw each other a few time when I traveled to Atlanta to spend time with my . There was no love connection but we maintained a friendship.

A few months ago, I switched political parties. There has been fall out. My older 's -in-law and his wife unfriended me. My says, "I moved to the dark side," I am not concerned about the MIL but DIL is concerning because it affects the relationship with my and grandson. I will completely walk away before I do anything negatively influence my son marriage and his family.

Also, there is the "Man From Antifa" which is the name I've given to the man from Georgia. He has declared me a fascist, a racist, a homophobic, a xenophobic, and says the I am sharing a bed with a misogynist. Dah! No more friendship, he unfriended me and I blocked his from my cell.

Ironically, I still support gay rights and immigrants who come in legally. I have found that Republicans vote on conservative values that have nothing to do with racism. Trump can be crude and doesn't coat but if you listen closely, he is frequently right. What I walked away from is the type of behavior being displayed by my 's and the man from Antifa.

So I am going on a second date with the Republican. Yea Haw!!!! I haven't dated in quite a few years because there are so many jerks out there but this man is refreshing. He is a total gentleman. I am okay with alone but if I don't have to be. Yea Haw! This has been one of the perks of walking away. The critics can find fault all they want but they are not walking in my shoes.

So do I trade my pink hat for a MAGA hat. CHEERFULLY!!!!

Presidental Pardon of the Turkey

The Presidential Pardon of the Turkey is a tradition that started with the Party of Lincoln!!! It has been my observation that all the turkeys are white. I gOOgle researched the reason why.

Our Founding Fathers ate Wild Turkeys with colored feathers of iridescent red, green, copper, and bronze. If things went Ben Franklin's way, the turkey would have been the National Bird and I suspect that it would not be a holiday cuisine.

This wild turkey also know as the Heritage Turkey is not what can be found at the local supermarket. The Broad Breasted White is the only turkey breed still widely raised for the market, and it is a troubled creature. The colors have been bred away by the turkey industry, because feather buds (the pin feathers) are less noticeable under the skin of a plucked bird if they are white. With short legs and wide breasts -- the better to serve up white meat

Broad Breasted White turkeys do not fly and can't even reproduce on their own. Carrots and Pea will be going to Virginia Tech to live out the rest of their lives and others have gone to Disney World. They do not have a long life expectancy even with the pardon. They were created and bred for consumption. Sad!!!

Wisdom from the Party of Lincoln

The letters appear below: On Oct. 15, 1860 — 150 ago — 11-year- Grace Bedell of Westfield, N.Y., a town on Lake Erie, wrote presidential candidate Abraham Lincoln. It was about three weeks before the election. She wrote, “My father has just come home from the fair and brought home your picture. I am a little girl only 11 , but I want you should be President of the United States very much so I hope you wont think me very bold to write to such a great man as you are. Have you any little girls about as large as I if so give them my love and tell her to write to me if you cannot answer this letter. I have got 4 brothers and part of them will vote for you anyway and if you let your whiskers grow I will try and get the rest of them to vote for you. You would look a great deal better for your face is so thin. All the ladies like whiskers and they would tease their husbands to vote for you and then you would be President

Donald Trump's hair may be his trademark but it is not the most flattering. Any suggestions for a make-over. Elections are in 2020. Would a new look help?
