According to USA Today, this past winter was brutal and we should brace ourselves for some very extreme heat this summer. Why is that even in the news? For as long as I've been alive, it's been cold in the winter and hot in the summer. I always look forward to it. The change of seasons is a wonder to behold. As night follows day, spring follows winter and summer follows spring. Don't worry about it! Rejoice!
There's a huge pond on my property. A few days ago I noticed that the ducks are back. It's good to see 'em again - they've been gone all winter. All the trees are full and the flowers are blooming. And to smell the honeysuckle and hear the birds, all I have to do is open the back door. Most of all, my landscaper speaks English. What a life!
One of my neighbors gave me two dozen fresh eggs and some homemade hot pepper relish. A friend of mine in Birmingham, AL gave me two jars of blackberry jam and some fig preserves. And, one of my best friends gave me a bag of jalapeno cheddar cheese pork skins. I have great friends and good neighbors. I'm a lucky guy!
I've never eaten an all-natural, sugar-free, gluten-free, multi-grain bran muffin. I've never seen, smelled or tasted a free-range chicken. I don't eat cereal, but I do drink whole milk. I eat white bread with real butter. I tried yogurt once (just once). Ice cream is better. I've never eaten any meatless chili or a veggie burger. I don't drink diet drinks or carrot juice. And I've never had any digestive problems. Coincidence? I don't think so!
As you know, Pope Francis has been obsessed with, and critical of, "unfettered" capitalism. For those who need to understand what "unfettered" capitalism is, go to vaticangift.com ... one can purchase a wide variety of various Rosaries, Saint medals, Crucifixes, icons, pictures and statues. Prices range from thirty to hundreds of dollars. With every order, you will receive the Pope Francis Crucifix for free. They take Visa, MasterCard, Discover and PayPal. There's no mention of how the poor can get one of these trinkets for free!
Pope Francis, as do some liberals, means well. But typically it's "Do as I say, not as I do." Oh well, it doesn't affect me. Whether it's Jorge Mario Bergoglio or David Miscavige, I'm not a member - a follower. And oh, I almost forgot, I don't drink Kool-Aid either!
Until next time,
God bless everybody and God bless America!
