Yesterday was the 14th birthday of my granddaughter, Sarah. If any of you are interested in seeing her grow up you can click on the link of my blog for Nov. 2009 and find A Birthday Card for Sarah. She is now very much a young lady. Here is a recent photo of her.
The cartoon was penned by Fitzsimmons of the Arizona Daily Star. He is so funny and writes a political column using satire. Tucson is fortunate to have such a talented cartoonist.
The hangover following the last election is fading now that the shock has abated. The best we can hope for is gridlock. If the radicals have their way they will set this county back 50 years. Thank God for the power of the veto.
Like a condemned prisoner, I am resigned to my fate. I am debating whether it's worth taking on another battle for saving the health care reform. That seems to be top priority for the Republicans now; weaken it, don't fund it, and if they manage to get a Republican president, repeal it. I am so tired of the whole stupidity of the voters and the entire duplicity of the Republicans that I think I will just let others fight the good fight.
I need to update my followers on my experience with my Visa account being used fraudulently. I now have a new credit card number, the credit on my statement of $425 is now a debit. The last I heard about it was when I got a telephone call telling me they had sent a form to be filled out before they could proceed with the investigation. The kicker was that I had filled out and mailed the form a week before. The message was a recorded one with no option to respond. The following day I called them to confirm that they had received the form. They had. I told the person investigating the claim that I thought they needed to reorganize their department because the right hand didn't have a clue as to what the left hand was doing. I assume I will be notified when the case is closed. Given the inefficiency in handling the whole thing, I am probably making a false assumption.
Thanks to everyone who helped me post the cartoon above. Special thanks to Rummuser for his assistance in doing so with a Mac. Once you know how to do it, it's easy. Now if my old memory will retain the knowledge, I will be able to do so agai
