Social Media Blackout

Usually after work, dinner and the ride in the car with the doggies I settle in...

...as my beautiful wife gives me the recap on her day I scan social media...

...checking Facebook and Twitter

(Saying 'No Kidding, Really'?)

...then I read news stories.

(Nod my head and say 'uh-huh', or 'Wow')

...and then finally go to sports.

If the conversation is still going on after all that I might actually play a couple of games of bowling as I shake my head in disbelief at the craziness of all that happened to her.

It's actually relaxing to me to catch up on the events of the day.

Except for the last two days.

I have been completely blacked out from anything that has to do with anything that mentions a single word about the election.

I can't do it!

I am not interested in the recapping of the votes...or the plans as the transition is made. I don't want to know 'what happens now' to the losing side.

I am actually pretending that outside of these four walls...and sports...nothing is going on!

Riding from job-to-job I have either listened to E-Street Radio or the MLB station.

If someone mentions anything about the events of Tuesday...

...I turn down the volume.

I've actually felt pretty good too.

Why worry about it?

I'm not quite sure how long it will be before I can read anything about it.

Maybe never.

Hell, I might even get into some of the work stories as Kathy tells them.

What a long, strange year it has been.

I don't think I can actually put together any coherent thoughts on it yet.

I Found His Blankie

Before Jake was even out the door I decided that the room he was leaving behind needed to be cleaned up. It was pretty much an exercise in...
