Bass Ackwards

That was my grandmother’s phrase for something like this when she wanted to use profanity and knew she couldn’t as the wife of a very prominent deacon in the church. (Grandma was a pistol, let me tell you. If you’ve ever seen The Beverly Hillbillies, you’ve seen a version of her. Granny Clampett was theContinue reading “Bass Ackwards”

Let’s Have Some Real Justice Around Here Now

I am not too sure who needs to hear this, but there are quite a few people who do not know it. Whether they want to admit it or not, women are the ones who hold the real power in the world. Why? Because without us, there is no chance of humanity’s survival. Plain andContinue reading “Let’s Have Some Real Justice Around Here Now”

Persistent, Passionate, and On YOUR Side

I went to and participated in the Candidate Forum hosted by the LaGrange/Troup County Chamber of Commerce and the Lagrange Daily News. My opponent was there, of course. I really don’t care for the things because you cannot get into the topics with answers that are only one minute long and ‘off-the-cuff’. I’m a moreContinue reading “Persistent, Passionate, and On YOUR Side”

“Woke” Who’s Woke? I’m Awake

The English language has some rather strange ways it does its verbs. One boy in my sibling’s class was asked to do the verb “to freeze”. He thought he had the perfect answer: “freeze, froze, frizen”. He was completely mystified when the class erupted in laughter. “Woke” is the simple past tense of “wake”. ItContinue reading ““Woke” Who’s Woke? I’m Awake”

Ballot Bingo!

I don’t know what your reasons for voting might be or even if they are on this particular card. I know I have a couple that missed this one. But I would be content with these, too. I could probably fill up another card, though. The point here is that whether you are a singleContinue reading “Ballot Bingo!”

What ARE You Going To Do?

I intentionally left this rather bare for a reason. Our choice right now is pretty stark. Either we get off our hind ends and go to the polls and vote for people who will defend the rights of women…or you don’t care enough about your sisters, mothers, and daughters to do anything to defend them.Continue reading “What ARE You Going To Do?”

Now THAT’S What Scares Me

Halloween is not my “thing”. I just have never gotten the point of the whole thing. But then I don’t do circuses and clowns either (at least the Barnum and Bailey kind. Cirque du Soleil-yeah, I can get into those.) Scary masks, pranks, and boo-ing people, though? Nyah. I’ll meet you over at the hotContinue reading “Now THAT’S What Scares Me”

Pain and Blood? They Don’t Know How

If the male gender was responsible for that end of reproduction, you can bet the farm that we wouldn’t be facing this climate crisis, New York City’s streets would be nearly clear of cars and buses, and we wouldn’t be having this big fight right now. However, such is not the case. (I’m still ofContinue reading “Pain and Blood? They Don’t Know How”

My Druthers List

What’s a “druther”? That’s what you would “druther” be doing instead of what you are doing. Now does it make sense? I’ve been grown for too long to think that just because I make a list that I’m going to be able to deliver on it Immediately if not sooner or maybe at all. BUT,Continue reading “My Druthers List”

If You Were Asked To Name Your STATE Senator and Legislator, Could You Do It?

People right now kind of know that Rev. Raphael Warnock is one of their U. S. Senators. It’s all over the news that he’s running for re-election and who his opponent is. Hard to miss if you want to know the truth. Rev. Warnock is everything you would want in a Senator white, black, orContinue reading “If You Were Asked To Name Your STATE Senator and Legislator, Could You Do It?”
