.”is that, that painting called “the potato eaters”?” Asked Carolyn, as she looked at my latest blog entry. “No,” I answered her, taking a lot of pain killer for my joints, “it’s called “very crazily colored painting by very crazily – colored artist”, why do you ask?” “Nothing,” she finally replied, giving it up.Smoking

I had just been trying to call the long-distance number for the post office, trying to get my package rerouted so it would be picked up at my local post office, instead of being delivered to me on a day when I couldn’t stay home to get it. It actually took me two hours, calling and calling, and calling and waiting on their wait line,before the long-distance post office said, “no, you have to call up your local post office to arrange for them to keep your package there so you can pick it up.”

Thanks so much, federal post office department!the next time any of the states decide to secede from the union, and become independents, countries, themselves, I’ll remember this, and support them.they couldn’t be any worse getting a hold of individual post offices, at individual tiny countries post offices, any worse than our own big federal post office. So what the hell?

Back to the pony express, YAHOO!llamaglomp

besides the fact that Trump was running for president on the Republican ticket of, “I am just so much better than Obama could possibly be, and I’ll probably get rid of Obama care –” there wasn’t much chance that Obama could one up him. Not that I like Republicans or believe them, it was just that, all my experience with Obama and Obama care, was pretty much similar to dealing with a autistic three-year-old boy, who didn’t realize the world was round, and usually spent most of his days holed up in a ball in a drain pipe.

there was no doubt at this point that ANYONE could do the presidency better than Obama, and maybe not lie so much as well. – – Plus, “INACTION” was Obama’s middle name. Who could do worse than that?Post_Nuclear_Project_Entry__D_by_Gnog


Caroline was saying, over a cold drink,while all this manure was being discussed, “I can’t find any REGULAR WATERMELON!” With a sob. “That’s because,” I replied, swigging down awhiskey and pineapple juice, “there IS NO REGULAR WATERMELON anymore! I found that out myself, I can’t find them either. There is nothing except seedless genetically manipulated watermelon!”

“AND,all the seedless watermelon taste like crap, like cardboard, no sweetness, no flavor, nothing that leads me to think it’s a piece of fruit. And NOBODY has any regular old-fashioned watermelon now! I never thought I would get so old, I would see the death of watermelon. But that’s what happened. “

“These things we are supposed to call watermelon, taste like flavorless turnips.”singinwatermelongraphics-fruit-249004

“I have lived too long,” I replied, sitting down very hard. “When a woman can run for president, and I refuse to vote for her; watermelon all tastes like-year-old turnips; the Republican might get into the White House, just because the present Commander-in-Chief was ALSO ACTING like a year-old turnip rotting away in a deathly bad old garden.

“–Any of our diplomats or officials overseas are no longer physically safe because our federal government refuses to send troops to rescue them, and China can just zonk right into all the federal employees’ records and all information, just by using a couple of XBOXES.– – because the federal government’s computers are no longer able to stop them or to encrypt all the information.”

“are you trying to call us a Third World, or fourth world, or even a fifth world country,now?” Asked Carolyn, slurping some more pineapple juice/Whiskey. “yes, I guess I am,” I said, yawning in the heat of the day. “Then,” replied Carolyn drowsily, “you’re absolutely correct. We’re more like some desert in Africa, then any United States I ever heard of. – – And I bet they’ve got better watermelon then we do now,also! “cupcake_yummy_by_apparate-d3ca410

talk about having the worst of both worlds, instead of the best. High tech watermelon, low-tech, Washington DC.nobody had their priorities straight.

not that Eugene, or Lane County had its priorities straight, either. The Oregon Legislature decided to ignore the Oregon drought, in favor of making all the guns in Oregon completely ill legal, or registered, or, if they passed another cute little anti-firearm bill, requiring you to take out federal insurance on your firearm, or face a $10,000 fine if you didn’t.

okay, that was another Obama – Bill against firearms. How was it supposed to help us keep from getting invaded eventually by ISIS,which was rushing its way through every country it encountered, heading eventually for our shores?so that any ISIS , secret agents hidden in America, would have a very tough time paying the insurance on their firearms, thus rendering them disabled?

Caroline looked out at my backyard, and all the huge amounts of overgrown blackberry bushes, high weeds, and high grass, and asked me “aren’t you ever going to get your junky yard cut, ever, this summer?” “Are you volunteering?” I replied, looking for the whiskey bottle, and the lemons, and a CD of “baby doll”. “NO,” replied Carolyn hissing at me, “I just want to know if you’re going to finally get declared totally ill legal by the County, and get your whole place condemned?! It would definitely happen!”

“yes,” I sighed, “I know it’s going to happen, I just don’t have the money to do it, and all my joints are in so much pain, I can’t make up a huge amount of oxbow, and go out and spray them all myself right now. And don’t tell me to hire high school kids, they refuse to do that work anymore! They all want white-collar jobs in offices tapping on keyboards, even for the summer!”and I turned and looked at her – – “and don’t say I should hire a bunch of Mexican or Latin American wet backs, ill –legally, because all I have to do, is hire some poor, unemployed schnook -adult who can’t get a job here to save his life!”

“so, continued Caroline, looking up at the sun with one hand over her eyes, tentatively, “I think you’re probably going to let all the bushes, weeds, grass, and even the blackberry bushes DIE in the heat of the sun, in July instead, are you? So you don’t have to kill them yourself? Like some third world or fourth world peasant who has no money, has gotten old, and still is required to kill the weeds on his place by his dictatorship?”

“YOU GOT IT!” I said happily, finding the whiskey bottle, and making myself a lemonade and whiskey sour. “Welcome to the new third and fourth and fifth world country!hi Tec watermelons, and low-tech people! Low money, low politics, low action, and most of all low ethics and morals!Brazil is sending all of its unwanted criminal-peones to Oregon, I hear, because that countries getting too high tech filled with middle-class jobs, and hard up Europeans! Oh, and also lots of Chinese.”

“EVERY COUNTRY has lots of Chinese now,” replied Caroline, finally remembering to put on her sun–hat, although her nose had already burnt to a crisp. “They’re everywhere except in China. The only Chinese in China, are the ones who can’t afford to get out, and the ones who were running the factories.” She looked at me quizzically. “Is it true you’re trying to make some business deal with Ali Baba, the Chinese business website? What the hell are you up to? You’re not going to get some little tiny factory to manufacture quilted checkbook covers for you, are you? And sell them on eBay? Are you that much of a copycat?”

“NO! NO!”I replied vehemently, throwing the whiskey bottle into large blackberry bush, now that it was empty. “I’m not doing that at all! It’s a completely new invention, it’ll make us wealthy!” And Carolyn looked at me with the sick look in her eye, as this, “he finally gone off her rocker for good!”

“it’s just this,” I said, picking up a knife and slicing off a long length of blackberries vine, and shredding off all the leaves and thorns, and showing it happily to Carolyn. “I’ve invented a way to make shepherds hooks, ear rings, out of the matter of Oregon blackberry vines, the don’t have any metal in them, and are completely allergenic! They’ll revolutionize the ear wire industry! I just have to get some factory in China, to take all the vines, and manufacture the ear rings out of them! You could hang anything you want from ORGANIC – BLACKBERRY – VINE – EAR – WIRES!” I can hear Caroline gasped behind me.

“Sandramina,”she said my name slowly, as if trying not to scare me or upset me. “Maybe we should take you on some kind of vacation, like an ocean cruise to Alaska? Maybe you’ve been thinking too hard lately?and all that cold would take down the inflammation of your brain? What do you think?” I didn’t pay any attention to her, I kept talking about my new invention, ORGANIC – EAR––WIRES!

For women who could not wear any kind of metal in their ears! And MEN!ANYBODY could wear organic ear wires, even little babies, because they were made out of any kind of metal anymore! Not even titanium! And whoever heard of an Oregon blackberry vine hurting somebody’s ears? No way!

“you can’t take me, Hillary will hear about this! HILLARY will save me! I’m a feminist, Hillary loves feminists!Hillary loves all working people, middle-class, and all the good people of America! She’s going to get into office and reward us all! She’s going to get rid of BenGhazi, she’s going to get rid of Isis, she’s the GOOD FAIRY! she should’ve gotten into office, instead of Obama, she would’ve fixed all the whole country by now!”

– – I yelled, as the guys in white jackets from the mental health department, dragged me away, while I was wearing a very nice, totally locked up white jacket myself. Carolyn got in the back of the ambulance, and held my hand. “Don’t worry, it’s going to be okay,” she said soothingly,”it’s just the heat of the summer in this drought,the strain of not having any good watermelon anymore,not being able to vote feminist, and having your country designated fifth -rate-below Africa and Canada and the Sahara Desert, and smelling all the high=potency pot blowing off your new neighbors’ porch next door”, finished Carolyn.

“OH,” added my friend, “also having your latest chiropractor leave the United States, for Australia, and not being able to find another one in the United States on Medicare. That could be a lot for ANY SENIOR with back problems, having to put up with, and wigging out on narcotic painkillers, and newly bought marijuana – derivative – pain products.” Carolyn nodded sadly, as they took me away. “Was she ever be okay again?” She asked, but they looked at her and replied, “WAS SHE EVER ALL right?”

that’s a hard question to answer, if you live in Oregon, home of the fifth rate, fifth world – country and state, and even the Sahara desert is starting to look a lot better for watermelon than here.

NO MORE BLOG–SOFTWARE TOO SCREWED UP”– (but everything is screwed up anyway, in Eugene Oregon)



(representational piece of modern art, trying to represent GO DUCKS – – bought from Oregon artists)

The reason I am bitching and moaning and saying that I’m dumping my word press blog , are the following raisins: (snicker snicker).confidentwalk (1)

In the first place,I can’t find any way to fix this stupid word press frame on my blog, which is way too wide now, and I can’t fix it so that I can type on it properly.

Plus, when you try to leave the page,the sticker comes on:”You don’t want to leave the page do you?DON’T GO!! You will erase any changes!(which is what I was trying to do.) NO!! do not leave the page!:” and when i hit the button”leave the page,”it REFUSES TO LEAVE THE PAGE!!act13.gifbumpcrazy

YEAH. it freezes my whole screen, so I cannot leave the page! I cannot turn off the computer,or close it!!HA HA. WORDPRESS, you really fixed it, so no one can leave the page–you’re so scared they will erase their changes—which is what we’re trying to do! If we leave the page,we can erase the wrong changes we made, you dumpkoffs!! But you think we’re the ones screwing up!! So you fixed the “do not leave the page or you’ll erase your changes” so we cannot LEAVE the page at all!! We cannot turn off the computer screen!! Wow, what power and knowledge you guys have!! You made up our minds for us.  You wankers. (more raisins for you, snicker.)  I finally had to force the computer to close. ha ha. No, I’m not mad–yet. But I’m going in that direction.  :)

That is a big bad Wolf of my WordPress,.org, totally un- read by anybody on the web blog. Which they did not warn me about, when they gave me a WordPress.org blog. They never told me, nobody would ever read it because it was.org._ohdeargodno__by_Sinister_Starfeesh

So now I have the whole job literally of transferring the whole thing over to WordPress.com. Which is still free supposedly. But, if you look up all your instructions for doing this, you may as well go out and get a degree in computer software. Which I don’t want to do right now I am too old and I would die before it was done. Plus, the arthritis in my hands would not hold up for that._boxer__by_jSepia

So let’s start complaining about WordPress right now.I think that would be a very good idea. In the first place, okay word press, why didn’t you tell me that if I use.org, for WordPress nobody the hell would ever read it? And it’s definitely not getting read. It’s probably because it’s not a very good blog, but it’s also not in the mainstream of WordPress.com anyway that’s what somebody recently told me and gave me a message on the blog. Supposedly write from WordPress. “Dear lady, please transfer all of your blog over to WordPress.com. Nobody is reading your blog at all because you’re stuck on WordPress.org! – You idiot.”

so if I’m that much of an idiot, why am I supposed to be able to transfer all of my blog through your witty and simple instructions, over to WordPress.com? Of course that’s going to be very easy to do. Especially since I can’t even figure out how to fix my margins, so that I can see the updates sign anymore. Angry_Mob_by_Sinister_Starfeesh

HOW THE HELL DO I TRANSFER MY BLOG OVER TO WORDPRESS. COM? The good fairies are just going to come over and fly it over?…Fairy_Transformation_by_Zikes

And also that’s another thing; what happened to update? The little sign on your page that lets you update when you type? I mean, that’s supposed to be there, right? Or wrong? So how I update this stupid thing? When there’s no update? So you went and changed something else on this dumb thing and didn’t tell me, as usual.

That’s what I get for having a free blog on WordPress. It’s kind of like having only extended basic service on cable TV; you can watch all those channels, but believe me if you’ve watched TV lately, you know that there’s absolutely nothing on. NOTHING.you’re not going to be able to get anything watchable, until you upgrade to a couple of movie channels. – And pay extra.

The last time they actually wrote any good TV shows, was when they had that huge flood of science fiction shows on all the channels. That was it. And I’m not going to count all the stupid “lost” episodes. Do you remember the way they ended that show? COP OUT!  That was an absolute copout. That’s the way you get out of not knowing what the fuck to do with your ending; kill everybody off. No, Shakespeare did not do that because he was a good writer, he did that because it was the fashion. You’re not getting away with that excuse.TV writers have no relationship whatsoever to Shakespeare.

and let’s not forget the latest fiasco of that wonderful series called “MAD MEN”. Did that sucker end or not? I can’t tell. They’re not making any more. But they did not say that! Or at least not when I was watching. So I don’t know whether it’s off or not. But it is off. Ended.and there wasn’t even any ENDING. Unless the ending was supposed to be, that the main madman went off into the sunset, drinking his little alcoholic butt to oblivion. That’s not much of an ending. And  that show was definitely not “days of Wine and roses”. It was all about very risqué old-fashioned underwear and women’s girdles, and nylons, and how women were supposed to be just sex objects in the office. and men really really liked it.

Aww, the good old days!! when men were men, and they drank lots of liquor and didn’t worry about their livers.

that’s been happening a lot on TV; TV series that end without a boom, or a notice that they’re ending. So you’re up in the air, and asking your neighbors, or your friends, “say, is that show over? Or are they just haggling about wages again? And they’re always late getting the episodes out say, about a whole year?  and is Dr. who over?cause I don’t see any new episodes of that either?

“Boy do I miss the TARDIS. It Looks just like that out- house we used to have in the back.”

now let’s keep complaining and not slack off. All right, I’m going to complain about something political;HEY THERE!MR..PRESIDENT!. PRESIDENT OBAMA! Do you have any excuse for THROWING ALL  THOSE PEOPLE  OFF  OF MEDICARE  PART D WHO TAKE PSYCHIATRIC MEDICATION?    (DARLING? Sweetie?)

You think we’re all going to be very well supplied by our LOCAL mental health Department and state government?and that all those schizophrenic and psychotic people, including the ones who are dangerously criminal, criminals, on psychiatric medicine are just going to be taken care of by the local mental health department because they have plenty of funds ? And the state governments are going to be able to medicate all those dangerously psychotic, and often homeless, schizophrenics, because all the state governments have so much money?


you know that  one of them already got that Sen. in the head with a bullet. So does Pres. Obama think that he is completely protected and immune from getting one also from a very very crazy psychotic person off their medication? The medication that president Obama himself decided to stop? Because it cost too much money? And he wants to put all that money into Obama care, so you have to pay thousands and thousands of dollars for your deductible or else you can’t use it? Isn’t that intelligent?

so let’s go on with our not slacking off complaint; if president Obama should get hit in the head by a bullet from a very crazy person or a very overly political person (not much difference),WHO IS he going to blame? Is he going to blame our local mental health Department, because they didn’t have to enough money to give the poor person medication? Is he going to complain about our state government because they didn’t have enough money for mental health?

No, president Obama from his sick bed, while his brain is embedded with a couple of bullets, is going to have to complain about his own program, where he decided to cut all of that psychiatric medicine out of Medicare part D. And that’s the truth.

WHY? There’s no reason a lot of our senior citizens are not particularly un – crazy themselves.after all, president Obama has really inflamed seniors in every corner of our country, by cutting $700 billion out of their Medicare. If that’s not enough to make somebody crazy, I don’t know what is.after all, my age is about 67, and I am actually riddled with neurological antidepressant medication, or else I go crazy, go down to the local gun store, buy a whole bunch of handguns and rifles, and ammunition, get a little training from the National Rifle Association, and jump on a bus to Washington DC.

who says the elderly are jovial and mature? I say they are not jovial and mature. You should see some of the people in Eugene Oregon – a lot less mature than perhaps Hades. I have known and talk to or tried to talk to, so the extremely monstrously extreme left-wing liberals, in Eugene, who have ranted and raved horrendously, so badly, that I think president Obama should start worrying now. And those were middle-aged or elderly people.

They still had a lot of steam left in them. I know that those people happen to be very angry about the extreme non-left-wing stances that president Obama has been taking, (according to them anyhow) and if you cut off their medication, they’re probably going to take the next flying saucer, gray rabbit bus, or volkswagen bus to Washington DC, and probably shoot your head off. – If you can manage to get away from one of your Hawaiian  vacations with your wife and kiddies, or failed foreign visits, and actually BE in Washington DC.minding the business.

(did you know that Hitler actually invented the Volkswagen bus? (The “People’s car”?)and I’m sure that he also approved of the Mercedes-Benz.)”that German engineering.”

I forgot, Obama; you don’t really mind the business, you actually REINVENT all the LAWS of the federal government in the country. That’s what your true job is. And you also REINVENT the Constitution of the United States. I guess that is a pretty big job. That’s why when people look on the map of the world, for the United States of America, they can’t find it anymore. It’s listed as OBAMAVILLE.

the funny thing is, I just looked up some history, of 1776. The basic reasons that the colonists revolted against Britain and went to war, were the following: Taxation without representation, by Britain.the British were taxing the colonists to death. Also, if you were a colonist, you had no rights, you could be hauled away, to prison or what ever, without any trial or jury. No phone call. It was legal.thank God that could never happen now.

(Raisins, snicker snicker.) Plenty of raisins.

it is true,that suddenly I feel lighthearted and light shouldered, because there are no burdens and worries and stress on my shoulders now that I have written this great and wonderful blog episode. It really does make you feel free and better, to get all those worries off your mind, and transfer them onto everybody else on the web.

that is, until I get plenty of visits from the FBI and CIA, if I can manage to get them to read this blog, because they now think that, as a senior citizen I am extremely dangerous. DARN. and the last time the FBI visited me, they sent really big, tall, heavy duty young guys, with scowls on their faces. all over some ranting and raving on the web, where people usually rant and rave and nobody takes it seriously.but somehow, these great agents missed out completely on all signs of the forthcoming Boston bombing. Tsk tsk. What a bad day to miss.

After all, nobody’s reading my blog!that’s what I get for being.org. Instead of.com.I can never get any real terrorists on here, reading it, to make any comments.

but who cares, all that matters is, now I feel good. And relaxed. That must be the real secret of writing a blog it makes YOU feel better, never mind the people who read or don’t read it. They’re not the main purpose of it after all.:)    

(  :)   Signing off, Sandramina, in Whoville homeless village, Eugene, OR,  kicking homeless people in the shins, stepping on their dogs’ paws, and raiding their bottles of “Boone’s Farm Apple-Cherry Wine”. I am such a MEAN old lady, I still want my Medicare part D!!  Why should I let Obamacare have it?? He’s still getting bribes from insurance-companies to screw the public. And THAT is a lotta dough.  $$$$$$$$) …





I was on the telephone, with my friend Ronni, who lives in Portland, when I was reading a copy of “Northwest Boomer and senior newsletter”. My eyes lit on the meeting at the Eugene city library, February 23rd, 2 PM, that said “why are there few black people in Oregon? A secret history.” And that was what their meeting was about. “It looks like you’re not supposed to be here, and you don’t exist,” I said to my friend who  is black. “According to this, there aren’t any of you in Oregon. Only white people.”_ohdeargodno__by_Sinister_Starfeesh

“who the hell said that?” Replied my friend, very irritated;” so I don’t exist? And the rest of my friends don’t either? Who the hell do these people think they are? A secret history? What are they blabbing about?” “I know what they’re going to talk about,” I replied. “They’re going to tell about how the University of Oregon was founded by members of the Klu Klux Klan; and that Oregon was terribly racist and had lots of Klu Klux Klan members here, OH! – – And the reason why there are not huge numbers of black people here (the way they are supposed to be) is because we’re still very racist in Oregon, and the university is still really racist. I also saw these people’s video on YouTube, describing how segregated the very old university was.”creat08.gifdemon makefacesgy

my friends laughing, very loud, resounded in my ear; “oh my, that is absolutely hysterical! Like all those black organizations at the University, don’t exist? And all the black student body especially during the 60s, didn’t exist?  I guess that would leave out affirmative-action also;and all those African American political groups that were so active and involved in the University. And I guess the African-American PROFESSORS in the college don’t exist either?”lightninghitsterb231lightninghitsterb231

“Yes, and I guess the African-American studies programs don’t exist either.  Wow! I guess these people in this group are running on hallucinatory mushrooms or something. Gee,Ronni,I guess you don’t exist after all!how you feel about that? At least you don’t have to pay taxes I guess, ha ha ha ha ha!”we laughed for a couple of more minutes.it was really a gas, what this “very discriminated against group” was agitating about.chasevulturestor17

What were they agitating about? THE PAST.the old and ancient past of Oregon, where there truly were Klu Klux Klan operating, and lots of members that were here. But, Oregon was typical among quite a few states in the United States that had very active Ku Klux Klan and segregation of black people.there was no mention in the propaganda of this meeting, about all the other states at that time in history who had even more active Klu Klux Klan, especially in the deep South.for some reason, this group had decided that little old OREGON, and the University of Oregon, were far worse than any of the other southern states, as far as discrimination of black people, and that’s why there were so few black people in Oregon. We were absolutely still racist to the edge.makefacesgy

I did call up this group, later on, to try and find out just exactly what its motives were, as to digging up the old past and skewering Oregon and the University with it. Just what were it’s motives anyway? I mean,  history is one thing and it’s a good thing to read up on it. But as far as saying that “there are so few black people in Oregon, because it has such a horrible racist past, and it’s still racist and bad bad bad!” – – And deliberately not mentioning how racist the other states were, except for this one.poophorskngt

And that title was really misleading; “why are there so few black people in Oregon?” – Because of the very racist and Ku Klux Klan past in this state? Except that, all of that was completely gone. Vanished into the past. Oregon was one of the most liberal and left-wing and Democrats, and pro-ethnic diversity states and universities in the whole United States. so it was a little odd that they were accusing a very liberal left wing and Democrat state, of being anti-black?buttmad209

I talked to the leader of the group, but I still couldn’t get any real answers. What was the reason for dredging all this up, and smearing Oregon with it? The only thing I could get out of them was, “Oregon is still completely racist, against black people, and all their disgusting past has to be dug up and exhibited to everybody.” I had to admit that it really did exist in history. But why, oh, why, was it to blame for tons of black people not coming here en masse, to enjoy the rain, freezing cold weather, snow, hail, and lots of GLOOM that they would absolutely just love instead of California or Miami?famlap97.gifkaostorm

so according to this group, the only thing that kept so many black people from flocking here, to enjoy all the snow and snow storms, frozen streets, broken pipes, rain, sleet, months of GLOOM without sunshine, was that nasty old Oregon and the also nasty University of Oregon, had such a bad nasty naughty anti-black person past. And that was still going on! Oh my oh my!lumineux.gifhairscared BOOM_chtiiik_booom_CHIIK_by_Pixelisto

I had never thought about that before; was it really obvious that African American people just love all that nasty lovely wet and cold weather,and it seemed they wanted to come here in large groups and settle?among all the hippies? And all the unemployed and homeless? With the very high jobless rate, unemployment, and complete lack of jobs?and all the white trash? And the huge abundant amount of working poor? And they really longed to pay high prices for food, never see the sunshine all winter, watch their gardens get destroyed by super slugs, never be able to raise tomatoes instead of accidentally raising lots of banana slugs instead?l gunsshootinglove ove13

You know Black people just LOVE BANANA SLUGS; better than corn-bread.I  had ignored  all these facts.icon_confused  makefacesgy

It just really never occurred to me before. I guess I had been blocking it out. And the fact that I had African American friends, here Kept me from realizing just how much all the other Black folk in California, and warmer climates were being kept  From moving here, and getting used to all that wonderful freezing weather we had. It just never occurred to me, DARN! I didn’t really want to think that they too, desired to get up in the morning, put on huge fluffy coats, and shovel out 6 feet of snow hindering their cars and blocking their driveways.plus, skidding  all over the icy black freezing highways, ending up in snowbanks, having to be pulled out by American automobile Association tow trucks.fuckyeahseakingplz

To think that we were somehow keeping them from this paradise. Tsk tsk.#2fridaythe13th

I suppose they were tiring of lovely and warm, exotic and special Louisiana and St. Louis by now; and that they wanted so much to dessert all their family, and move here to this strange wonderful and not exotic or lovely, but somewhat green, state.not to mention all the great restaurants and cooking and FOOD. After all, Oregon has such great restaurants, full of vegetarianism, raw food, odd food, fast food. The South just couldn’t hold a candle with its Paul Prudomme, Cajun and Creole cooking, crawfish and seafood. Sigh. Corn bread, fried chicken, and other yummy yummys of the South, well, they were getting so tired of that – – they wanted to rough it in Oregon and go to Carl’s Junior instead.glompunch

I talked to some of my other friends about this, and they thought I was crazy.”why in hell would African-Americans want to move to Oregon in large groups? What the heck for? There wasn’t any employment, the welfare was all gone as or no food stamps here either. The government saw to that.” I guess they were just itching to compete with all that lower white trash here, for welfare and stuff like that? Sure, I’m sure they were. It was just our terrible discriminating segregating anti-black person past that was holding them back.superduper2angry

“I don’t think that a lot of my friends would want to dessert meat,  barbecue, and go all vegan instead,” one of my African-American acquaintances,” sure, I like greens; but nothing but Greens, and no MEAT? In favor of “all organic vegetables”, macrobiotic diets, brown rice and veggie-burgers?? Your town is pretty low-down on food, if you ask me.”Gluten-free diets”?  No bread??” He did some colorful language here, and I had to chuckle.”Damn, your town is taken over by YUPPIES!! “he continued.”Those self-important, “save the world instead of the U.S.”-type, who think it makes them Queen of the May to save all of Africa?!! OH, YEAH, I’d just LOVE to live among those snot-noses!!  Not to mention–“he lowered his voice-“You got the whole population of GAY SAN FRANCISCO THERE!! SHIT, MAN. ”   “Not really your cup of tea,then?” I replied. “No, I’ll pass on that. heh heh.”  I had forgotten that he really liked WOMEN. And that did not include lesbian women. ghostgrabfood2!cid_FF78CA367CF44289B18E48B1FA797710@DorothyHP

It appeared that a few of my African-American friends had no desire to move to Eugene, or Lane County, or even visit here. “You got nothing there, honey. Those organic-range-chicken-eggs aren’t enough reason.”  “Not the small organic boutique farms either?”  “Boutique “organic” small farms, a good reason to not live there or go there. Not in my budget, Sandramina!”secretlaugh

 And I had to agree that the COOKING HERE could not hold up to the Southern parts of the United States. Eugene Oregon thought that CUP-CAKES or TOFU were the be all and end all of cuisine; did I mention they have cake made out of BEETS HERE? _slamhead__revamp_by_Synfull  makefacesgymore2leatherface

No wonder my diet was working so well; hm…”beet-cake” was not so alluring to the palate.dighole

“I am not surprised you’re losing some weight, “said Ronni, from Portland.”Yeah, cake made of beets just somehow misses out compared to black bottom pie. mud pie. or black-bottom cupcakes. Or even Oreos.  Sheet.” She then invited me to come up some time to Portland. cause she still knew old-time good cooking, and was pretty handy with an oven or a skillet. “Want me to bring anything?” I asked. “Just your appetite, sugar, “and she laughed that hearty laugh of hers. What was such a really good cook, doing in PORTLAND? The hipster city was lucky to have her. aanother1love02

What were the few black people doing in Oregon? Just unlucky I guess. They just were not aware of how racist Oregon and the university of Oregon was, nasty, segregationist, and heavily into that vanished KKK that used to be, and no longer was.  UH…that is, “Why Are there so few black people in Oregon?”-group was well into it , being obsessed by it. The rest of us could easily live without it. 

I was heavily into fried chicken myself.  :)  _piethrow__by_de_Motemakefacesgyfry

“Eugene Oregon summer weather – – in brief: cloudy, foggy, overcast, no sunshine. – – Sorry, that’s the Valley of Sickness”Willamette Valley summer weather Report:”


489.png simple dark ocean


I  was shopping in Bi-Mart, for seeds, with Mary, who was pretty new to the Valley, and she was asking me about the strange weather right now. “Isn’t there supposed to be sunshine and heat now?” She asked me. She was going to grow things in Eugene, and she was discouraged about the cloudy weather when it was almost June.cutepig.gifwatrgardn

“many years ago,” I said to her, “we used to have fierce weather during the winter, snow times of rain freezing cold. But we also had very very hot sunny summers. Well, that’s not a guarantee anymore.” “What you mean?” She asked, confused.” I thought that the weather here had become very mild. You don’t have tons of rain –” “no we have a drought, which is worse,” I replied. “– And you don’t have freezing winters and snow and frozen stuff, what’s with the cloudy sky and no sunshine now?” “Well,”I explained, that’s part of the package of the new weather now. We have mild winters, but we also have no guarantees of nice hot summers anymore, full of sunshine.”flowerBliss_by_NaturallyPerfect

“I don’t get it,” she went on further, more and more confused. “Don’t you have tons of pollen?” “Yes,” I kept replying, “yes, we’ve got that..that is partly due to global warming, the huge increase of pollen all over the world, including here is tremendous. And this Valley has gotten a lot worse with global warming.” “So I still don’t get it!” She exclaimed. “I thought you were supposed to get very very hot summers lots of heat lots of sunshine!”5399.gifbluflowr

It was rather humorous,but sad to have to explain to a new person, that the changes in the weather to make the Valley much milder during the winter, had also transformed the SUMMER WEATHER also. “It’s like this,” I went on, “we now get very foggy cloudy overcast days, even as much as a whole lot during the summer. – – Whether there’s supposed to be hot weather and sunshine. For some reason, it also transformed the summer, as well as the other times, and we can’t rely on having nice hot summers anymore. We’re as bad as Alaska a lot of the time – – NO SUNSHINE.”5397.gifnusun

“I still don’t get it and I’m getting it worse and worse,” she protested,  she was clearly really anxious and angry about it. Apparently the guidebooks and  introductions to Eugene and the Valley, had told that it was a wonderland of gardening. Ha ha. Well, it wasn’t exactly a wonderland of GARDENING, it was a wonderland of “illusions about gardening.” “I’m sorry,” I tried to explain in a nice way.” You should have come here and rented a place for a while to see what the weather was like. It is very cloudy and foggy and overcast a lot of the time even months out of the summer. I’m sorry, maybe they should apologize to you.”I really didn’t know what to say to her anymore._gray__by_darkmoon3636.gifpaintworld

“maybe you should wait and not garden this summer, and see if you like it first.” I said. “If you can’t put up with the long days of clouds, damp and overcast skies, during the summer, gardening here might not be for you. Or, you might get a greenhouse and grow lights. Lots of people have to do that. At least, the greenhouse. When I came back here, I was astonished at how the summers had changed, and my squash in my backyard, was waiting for hot July, to finally make all the damp and moisture and cold go away. Instead, one July it was so cold and damp and overcast, it rotted everything in my garden and I gave up on it. I just could not guarantee even a hot July anymore for gardening.”5401.gifbluflr

“it’s just the VALLEY. The weather has definitely changed okay, but somebody should’ve warned you about all the damp cold overcast and cloudy skies and days, even for weeks during the summer. Bummer summer. Maybe you should go to the coast and just have a good time and forget about stupid gardening for now.” Now she was really upset. “COLD wet and damp and cloudy JULY? You’re kidding!” She replied.7850giffridge

“Sorry, maybe it’ll get better later, but we just don’t have those nice hot long summers, and Indian summers here anymore.I’m not crazy about it myself,” I continued.”  I mean, my family used to have a whole big orchard back there, it blasted with fruit during the summer, but we had old Oregon weather. This is NEW Oregon weather.I can’t garden like that anymore, and I’ve tried. I gave up on it._rain__by_darkmoon3636

“You might have to go to a nursery, especially  one on the coast, and try to get information on gardening for coastal damp weather. Well, I don’t know what to do about the sunshine. Maybe you really really need sunshine! I know I do. But yes, they still try and garden on the coast, when it’s very damp and overcast, I guess they can do it. They have a gardening store way out there.I know that in Salem, my friends can garden okay they get sunshine and hot weather. Just not here anymore.” I didn’t want to completely discourage her, she had already moved here.5395.gifredflor

“But I heard that you have a drought here,” she continued. “How can you have a drought, and not get enough rain and yet you have cold overcast cloudy foggy days of no sunshine? That doesn’t make any sense. If you have a drought don’t you have to have lots of hot weather and sunshine?” “I guess not,” I said sadly.” Maybe in California but I guess not here. That’s the Valley! It’s not the San Fernando Valley. It’s not the Death Valley.it’s not the Valley of Kings. It’s the valley of sickness(that’s what the Indians named it.). Maybe we should go to an expert, a real weather expert and get explained to us. But I haven’t found one yet willing to do that.”_piranha_plant__by_darkmoon3636

in short, my new friend Mary was very discouraged, but look at it this way. I never promised her a rose garden.somebody else did that._cookfire__by_poisontouch

(Sandraminadotty, celebrating her new brief and short blog entries. It beats editing, which I’m really bad at. And I’m also very bad at making my blog entries brief. The one going to celebrate this one, and have lots of food I shouldn’t have, to make up for all the calories I’m  expending,trying to keep warm now. and it’s almost June? Ouch! Turn on the heat!

“why do you think TRUmp will become president?” Carol asked me as we went futilely through Safeway, and the organic produce was still too expensive by: “why do you think?” I said that Caroline, “all us white people  including Oregon cannot find any food anymore, especially fresh food or anything else. So yeah, I think tRUMP will become president    out of desperation.”#2maracasdance

“Latinos and Mexican get  food stamps, tons of them, we saw it. so, yes, angry white people will vote in TRUMP. AND TECHNOLOGY and science will not save us. we’re going to have FOOD WARS, and CLASS WARS, andI will have to go back to stealing food, and getting caught by cops police again.”killpikachusterb034

“this fucking dragon won’t work, i can’t type this blog,that’\s it,.technology is OVER. IT HAS FAILED. WHITE PEOPLE can’t buy food unless they are RICH; SENIORS ON SOC. SEC.

“all the produce everywhere is rotten, or costs a fortune.organic.”  “They’ll put you in jail.” “Let em, it costs them money. i’ll sue em like that dead guy’s relatives did, when they let him die.” “why don’t you raise food?”  “have you seen me try it?”  “Yeah, it all died, or never grew.” “all the trees are dead or dying.”  “the WEATHER kills it all!”_escapingsuperllama__by_meninasuitcase

Here comes another wonderful day, living with junk.frustrated

I’m not talking about old junk I’m talking about new junk. The junk you have to use if you live in this civilized society every single day. And it’s even worse if you work with them and it’s your job.

it’s too far to the stupid hardware store to buy round up or crossbow blackberry weedkiller. So I try to order it ONLINE. Big mistake.

in the interest of not spraying our atmosphere and Eugene Oregon, with any more smog and carbon monoxide  gas and oil. You can smell it all the time. – – And having a car that is hideously expensive, also poisons everything  people use them constantly  in Eugene.

Eugene is “Car City”.

so ordering some blackberry weedkiller online is a special present to the atmosphere. Less gasoline. I hasten my little computer Internet connection, and gets screwed up, every time by Mozilla Firefox browser. it freezes the screen. I can’t do anything everything is frozen on the screen.– –

– –here begins the morning of another society living with junk. Yes, the new junk. Having a little coffee, which is badly made with the grounds of the bottom, because once I broke the glass pitcher,, the whole coffee machine does not work anymore. And, as a special in addition and bonus, you can’t just buy the glass pitcher for the Mr. coffee maker; you have to buy a whole new Mr. coffee maker.

(I am amazed, in fact that might newly installed Dragon NaturallySpeaking number 11.5 program is actually working and I can dictate this. The computer repair guy said it DID NOT WORK. I reinstalled it myself. So much for computer repair man. It’s the only thing that’s really working today. I should call them up or send them a note of appreciation, before it starts to degrade,, and not be able to receive the updates, because that system is so screwed up you have to leave your computer on all the time just to get the updates for Dragon.

So the system degrades and doesn’t work anymore.  But at least, it is working right now.

– –but the Mozilla Firefox browser has frozen the whole screen. In desperation, I go to the computer itself, hold down and press the off button. It doesn’t go off. It won’t go off . (000-0000 this is the translation of dragons”Oh-Oh”) still not very human.

okay now the disaster that begins; everything will not turn it off and the screen is frozen, nothing works. So I do the disastrous disgusting computer just drawing action; I pull out the power plug.OH, HELL! SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT !

of course it comes back on with more power but it wants to load in safe mode, and by stupid keyboard is broken,, and the up arrow does not work to go into safe mode.) And I’m not a developer so , can’t use the keys, or special words like enchantments.

I am just a senior, computer user, not one of the wonderful developers. I take it that they would know what to do with stupid Mozilla Firefox which is now an evil browser. EVIL EVIL EVIL!

EVIL AS WITCHCRAFT! Witches! WITCHES WITCHES  WITCHES! (Here I have trouble with the Dragon because it doesn’t know how to say “WITCHES”. So I go crazy trying to get it to spell WITCHES! Oh here we go again! Much junk in the morning! (You have to speak perfectly.

(Pretend you are a robot)a WITCH (paste) ROBOT!!!

so just this morning I have destroyed my computer again by turning it all off and clobbering it with the feedback when it comes back on. Naughty naughty! – – And it doesn’t come back in safe mode. Oh boy.all this has happened in a very short space of time.

I am really getting into this pretending I speak like a robot. Well, IMA robot; I am programmed to operate in a society filled with junk. I also break down, my elbows and arms are in great pain, from over computer use and fibromyalgia. Unfortunately, they cannot fix me. I am not R2-D2..

I am probably part of the junk.

so once it comes back on her work, I go to Sears online, to get round up, and their software to buy, as a fleeting nonmember, does not work. Typical website, software doesn’t work to buy something. I get a hold of the phone number, 800, from the stupid chat Box. Some guy in Venezuela or the Philippines or India comes online, and can’t speak English. Sears! You’re not patriotic you dummies! Oregon needs those jobs!

I promised myself to make this blog entry short. But, the simple act of buying something online, and handling the menacing Mozilla Firefox monster, crucifying my computer, and it’s giving me a migraine again.at least the Dragon works kind of, but I have to spell for it.

don’t you wish for a lot of HEXEN ?DAS HEXEN, YAH! Das hexen und Pilsner? HENRY ADAMS? YAH, ACH DA LIEBER!!

fursluginer (forsluginer?) fursluginer SEARS!!!  Fursluginer JUNK! ACH, DAS YIDISHA please!!

why isn’t there more Yiddish in the Pacific Northwest? I can’t even spell “furslurginer” anymore. Neither can the computer!

Maybe the  YIDDISH would scare away all the junk!! like the Yiddish Jewish ghost Golum? (spelling?)

this is the end of my blog entry; I have accomplished my goal for the morning, I have a massive headache due to stress. – – And mess and junk.

(Sandraminadotty, ouch, stress headache, and  other computer aches and pains–we seniors inevitably put up with. (Where is the Bi – Mart Acetaminophen extra strength 500 mg. each, Tylenol – extra strength – pain reliever – non-aspirin?)

so I am pulling hoses around the back of the house, and my heart beats faster and faster and so does my breathing, and I can’t breathe, and I’m getting dizzy. I’m in bad shape,I’m old, and I don’t get enough exercise. And I also have a heart murmur. So this is a bad sign. Not being able to breathe getting dizzy having your heart pump too fast.heart_dance___nano28_by_mirz123-d5msr62

when I tell Carolyn later, she says “you have to start getting some exercise, or you’ll be face down and I’ll be going to your funeral.” It’s true, and that’s how all my relatives die; bad hearts right around this age. My sister was very very overweight, and she finally had a stroke (even though she’s alive, she had just about the best medical care of the world.

(I don’t expect to get that medical care.)love_avatar_by_MenInASuitcase

My dad had numerous times when his heart stopped, and they had to call 911 to get it started, when he was out gardening around this age. He finally died from a stroke or heart attack. Both my grandfathers died right when I was born, from heart attacks. Boy, if there is anything I am set up for, right now, it’s a nice big fat heart attack or a stroke!. Look at my great ancestry and all my stupid symptoms, and my extreme lack of exercise. Wonderful._flove__by_stuck_in_suburbia-d4sxhnn

and look at my wonderful attitude towards life; you’re right, it’s pretty shitty. I suppose that if you had a pretty good life, your attitude is better. But I don’t know which came first; I didn’t expect it to be bad. but then again, I didn’t expect to have a horrible family life originally, to set that up also. That was pretty much a lot of the nonfunctioning, clinical depression, inability to have a good time that I had, and it wasn’t my fault.crazy_mini

I certainly inherited a lot of this bad stuff from the beginning, from my family. So I would have to say the notion that “the sins of the fathers are inherited by the children” tends to be true. From the beginning, you are hit with it. And it has a lot to do with how well you do in life right from the beginning.imslow

 all my life, I’ve tried to “get better from all the depression, and all the abuse, and keep hoping that I somehow get healed up enough, somewhat towards the end.” And now I realize, that’s never going to happen. Life doesn’t wait for you to get better, it just suckers you in. It doesn’t matter how hard you try, how much work you do, you’re never going to have enough time before you get clobbered at the end.crutchesinv

I wish I could say that if you’re extra intelligent, and very talented, it’ll be different. Nope. Already had all that, it didn’t make a shit of difference.it’s not that I made all the wrong choices. Which I did anyway, I keep thinking I should’ve gone into business, and got the business degree just to make money._fairylove__by_ayelie_stuff

But, as it was, everybody lies to you about how your hopes and dreams and ambitions will be met, and that’s all it is, lies.nobody ever warns you quite HOW BAD it will be.  If you knew that, you probably would  get out ahead of time. And nobody tells  you all the extreme failures that everybody goes through.and nobody tells you that clinical depression  and PTSD, don’t get well, even at the end.cries (1)

In fact, nobody ever seems to tell you any of the truth about the way the world is!brushteethsmiley-chores014

so why is that? WHY did nobody tell you the truth about the way the world really is? The reason for that is, everybody lies about the way it is every single day, and the way things really go, and they’re going to lie about it all through the future.6b52b2f291d28b00cd8499eec90dead0-d4oy0ju

because, my dear, all of society and all mankind hate the truth.so what they do is they lie about the way the world really is every single day of the week.

and you also probably lie to yourself, and tell yourself that everything will be okay.  it’ll work out.fbf_project_entry_by_i_is_smart-d52vf6z

so let this be a present to all of you young people who were graduating from something, to go either into college or out into the world or what ever. You’ve probably already been lied to so many fucking time, that you don’t know what the real truth about everything is anymore.!blahblah

so let’s go down a short list, and find out a few things that are true. For one thing, it is really a very hard world. For everybody. Maybe you’re out of it if you’re super rich, maybe a little.or maybe a lot! So that’s another truism.explosion

you can’t do anything without money and support. You just cannot.maybe a long time ago in the United States it was possible to start with almost nothing, but it’s just about impossible now. You could be extremely unscrupulous, to the point of being a professional assassin.(see above: “without money and support you can’t do anything”.)often, to be successful, people have had to be extremely unscrupulous, even ruthless. So don’t count that out.(SEE: Madonna)supergirl2flirt

here’s another one; if your family is extremely bad, abusive, or even outright crazy and insane, it’ll be so hard for you to manage in the world, that you may as well know it now. How you begin in life is very important.hitswi

here is another one; no matter how you plan in the beginning, how everything is going to go, life is going to screw with it anyway.you don’t have all the controlkatta93dragon over the world. You don’t have hardly any control.people try to lie to you about how much control you have over life, but let me tell you, I planned. A lot of people I know planned. I can tell you it doesn’t always work.

BE FLEXIBLE.splitsBanane21

“great expectations” is out.drinking

at the end of your life, you’ll look back, and decide that you made all the wrong decisions – – maybe.I know I did; I was sure I was going to succeed, cause I was so intelligent,did so well in school, and was so talented. I should have taken Business Administration instead. but hey, that’s still no guarantee. look at the god dam business world! (SEE: “might have to be ruthless.”)

yes, the worst deception of all, is deceiving yourself. Lying to yourself.dancinwoozieorjnfq

what things did I do right that were in my control? I didn’t have any kids. It turned out all for the best.some people are not meant to have kids. I also didn’t get married to any of the people I was engaged to. I was correct, they would have been disasters.I left Oregon, to go work somewhere else for many years. Good thing I did it. I’m not sorry.love08.giffamilystorylove

what are some of the mistakes I made? Some of those are above. Maybe I struggled too hard, it wasn’t like I had a choice. (SEE: “not having too much choice”) when I was young I probably counted on romance and romantic love too much. In the end it didn’t matter. It wasn’t one of the important things in life.boltarms

also, during my whole lifetime, I explored religions, and tried to figure out all the big questions in life, including what are we here for? That was a large mistake. It doesn’t matter why we’re here.it doesn’t matter what God really is or what the secret of life is. Go study some physics and quantum physics instead. It’s a lot more satisfying.mr__mime_by_creepyjellyfish-d7a499t

stop trying to be so personally successful.stop with the egotistical stuff.You either will or you won’t, but doing lots of huge amounts of efforts toward it, often do not pay off. And usually they are not the most important things anyway.now I consider trees a lot more important.I also consider people a lot more important, and especially friends.Pichu_pokeballed_emoticon_by_IoIo_Man

stop being so hard on yourself.you are harder on yourself than anyone else is, and it often just hurts you.

BE KIND to people and animals.KINDNESS TOWARDS OTHERS IS VERY IMPORTANT.be kind to yourself.Bee__Free_icon_by_TheDeathOfSen

learn to take care of yourself, as well as you can write from the beginning. Even if you can’t do it very well, keep trying to learn how to do it better.no matter how much you learn, it still helps.bouncewallsact13

learn to enjoy the nice things of life and this planet. If you like to watch cartoons, watch cartoons. If you like to watch funny stuff, watch plenty of funny stuff. if even something silly gives you enjoyment, like, for example, I like to collect EMOTICONS. Usually animated ones.I like to put them on all my e-mail and even this stupid blog. I think they’re darling! But then, I also think SpongeBob SquarePants is darling! Ha ha.kahsdad_by_jerikuto-d7f7w70

Don’t worry about the next world.of course, you will somewhat, because you don’t know about it mostly, but it is much better if you just accept life and death the way it is. In fact, ACCEPTING life and everything the way it is, and not trying to change it or fight it, is a much better way to handle life.take it from an expert, who didn’t want to accept anything the way it was, specially not myself, it is much much better if you just accept it.ahh

stop fighting the world and people the way they are, because they’re going to stay that way. They’re not going to change because you want them to.this also includes, trying to save the world from global warming, or the next ice age whichever one it is. It’s already going full tilt, it’s not going to stop. And what you do with your personal garbage is not going to make any difference. If you want to do it go ahead but don’t expect to save the world.hitler

if you are a woman, go ahead and swear as much as you want. Don’t let anybody stop you. Don’t let anybody tell you it’s not nice or it’s not feminine. Or, you should not express yourself in anger or frustration. You will be much worse off if you never express it!I have never had a man tell me to stop swearing or that it was bad for me to swear.since they are often the sex that is the expert at it, consider that.dancetogether

Some people were not meant to have kids; if you figured out, that’s you, don’t have them; don’t be bullied into it.Let your many cousins and relatives do it.there ARE enough people as it is._smooch__revamp_by_web5ter-d4lxjom

do not let anyone tell you “why are you trying to learn that? Or do that? You’re not going to use it.”yes, that is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard, if you enjoy learning more impractical things you’re never going to do, so be it. Education is great.in my case, that includes a lot of Shakespeare,watching it, reading it, and studying it in classes, and I never regretted it.fivesecondhug (1)

–and I guess the last one is, enjoy life as much as you can. You’re not going to be here very long.so if you are trudging along, working like crazy, neglecting enjoyment, always planning for the future, or being so serious and determined you never think about enjoying life, you better do it NOW. Have the ice cream. Have the chocolate! Start while you’re young.

Soon, there will be no more ice cream or chocolate. You will seriously regret not having it.dizzy_emote_by_mirz123-d4v6p1o

AND if you never appreciated at least SOME of life, or were grateful for the few nice things, do it now.It helps the pain later on.I have become aware that at least SOME HAPPINESS, if even very little, is a  choice you make.You can choose to have at least SOME JOY.–it doesn’t mean you will be happy all the time, or your life will change. BUT you can choose to have some.dancermoonact21

I refuse to lie to anyone young; getting old is HELL. “60 is not the new 30.” that is BS. All it is, is falling apart, gradually, and hurting worse physically. If you were very active, your body won’t do it anymore, often.Sometimes even mentally and emotionally it hurts. I’m not exaggerating and I refuse to lie. Science can do only so much, and our insurance will pay for a lot less.—which is why I have to do as much, medically, for my heart now, BEFORE I have the heart attack.boulevert2.gifkaoinbed

And the even worse part about old age, is all your friends die, and YOUR ERA DIES.Those 60’s and 70’s are gone, when you were young, and nothing good like that music, hair, fashion, art, and attitude will ever come again. We who lived during those times, consider ourselves very lucky to have had them.comm__for_cartoon_artist_comic_by_klaus92-d2yk7xj

OK, THE WAR WAS BAD; THE POLITICS WAS BAD. you can’t have everything. Hey, the Beatles and all that great music will never come again!! A lot of we women, girls, didn’t appreciate all the “sexual revolution,” and the pressure to have sex so casually. But women’s Lib did a lot for we women’s escape from “living only for other people, and not for ourselves.” I still thank God for it.Are_You_Happy_by_de_Mote

And I am not trying to tell others what to do, I just want to help. Please don’t take it as preaching. Its up to you. Take good care of yourself physically, while you’re still young, it makes a difference when you get old and cruddy. I did do that. I miss my bicycle a lot.chocohal

 I happen to know that nobody is reading my blog. However, it still hurts, when one day Carolyn comes in and says, “nobody is reading your blog, I asked them. They said you are too negative, about Eugene and Lane County, and all you do is complain.” “Well, I do respect their opinion of the local news.” I answered, on the computer. “And they’re very accurate, we people who are stuck here do tend to complain, especially when we are natives of Oregon.”childplay (1)

“I guess I should have explained that  a lot of we seniors and older people, all got fired from our jobs, and we’re the new unemployed. Which means, we have to get out of every nice urban city we worked in, and go live in the Okefenokee swamps again.” I replied. “In other words,” replied Carolyn, “sour grapes..” “That’s a nice polite way to say it”, I replied.hiiplz

“this has happened to just about everybody who is older,” I continued, “most of us got fired.they hired new young people  and got rid of us old goats who actually know how to run everything. But that also explains the state of the nation doesn’t it? I mean, as to who’s running it.” I paused..Don__t_Git_In_by_Momma__G

“For example,” I continued, “I never got my voter’s ballot from Lane County voters registration, even though I got the pamphlet. I called them up, they said, “can you come down right now downtown, and vote now, in person?” And I had reply, “no, I have necessary things I have to do, I can’t just drop everything, go away downtown, fight the traffic, and find a place to vote.they said that I am registered, they don’t know why I never got my ballot.” “I wonder how many people have the same problem or if it’s just you?” Mused Carolyn.feedmiplz

“I called up several pump companies, for an estimate of my well pump, they want $85 just for a visit..” I continued sourly.”” Like I am going to happily jump for the chance to get overcharged for an estimate.” “Well, it is a time of year everybody wants their pumps  fixed or look at,and they’re going to make you suck it up.” “There are a few pump companies,”” I replied,”I’m going to see if anybody has a free estimate.” I continued complaining; “that’s what I don’t like about Eugene and Lane county, it’s still like a little berg, everybody’s socks it to you, and there ain’t any competition very much.”killyousterb134

“maybe that is just the way the United States runs now, most of the trades people don’t know what they’re doing, or don’t have to do their job, or it’s so darn corrupt, service is the last thing you ever get out of them. The computer guys can’t fix your computer, and charge you, the bug guy wrongfully charges you a lot for termites you don’t have.earthwithhartssecuredownload

“Let’s see what else? Gardening people that come over to chop up all the blackberries, and in the process, steal your nice expensive hedge clipper. – – And you don’t notice until a long time later. Oh yes, and Lane County voter registration does not send you your voter ballot in the mail,  and you are supposed to just hop up, go downtown, and vote in person just to please them.– – drop all your work you’re doing and don’t complain!– – especially since this is a very close and controversial primary race, and it’s important to you!dumbasssmiley-level1_don004

“SCREW IT.nothing in the United States federal government is important anymore. WE are important, and nobody cares about us voters and taxpayers accept ourselves.” (Getting more bitter and caustic by the moment. You want me to lighten up? You lighten up! go set yourself on fire! This is my blog and I’ll complain if I want to!)”doraemon-cat

“okay, let’s talk about how much it sucks to get older, have everything HURT and not work anymore, and not get anybody to hire you because you are too old. You know after my sister got fired years ago, she looked for years for a job and just couldn’t get one. TOO OLD, lady!she had to give up and go on Social Security eventually.”electricfranesteinhae18

“You forgot this one,” complained Carolyn. “Old guys that you meet, professionally, and they see that you’re living alone, you’re an old lady, and they try to romance you to get money out of you. Well, maybe that goes on all over the United States when you get old.” “Yes,” I said,”isn’t getting older wonderful? All these wonderful new things that happen!” (Are you getting nice and bitter and sour yet? NO? Just hang on we can make it a lot more sour grapes.)ignore

“I did notice a great difference in food and vegetables and fruit, since I moved back here, away from California. tthe produce here sucks to Hell! I couldn’t get any grapes at all, that were not sour. They don’t make real watermelon anymore. What else? Well, in California we had the best food, produce and fruit, and here every time I go to a stupid supermarket it sucks to hell. I suppose I’m supposed to go to the Farmer’s market and get charged an arm and a leg, and half of my brain.I did check up online, and all they have is strawberries and lots of vegetables there. Every time I go to WinCo, some of their fruit is bad again.” continuing with ranting and raving and  B.S.drugs

“do you really notice that much difference in produce and food?” Asked Carolyn. “Yes, I do, you have to be very wealthy here to get really good food. It wasn’t always that way back in California. I forgot that the farmers here never could farm very well, they wore out the soil, and didn’t know what to do to it to fix it. So I pretty much am dieting successfully,  because I hate the food and don’t want to eat any of it!” “I thought you looked a little bit skinnier!” Said Carolyn. “Yes, it actually comes from losing my appetite .” I finished.charming

“plus, in Eugene and in this county absolutely everything is EXPENSIVE as hell. If you just want to take one dinky little class, it costs a lot.. If you’re a senior,  then you go to the senior center,, especially the biggest one, they’re going to charge you money just to go to a senior center! That’s a new one on me.  Okay, let’s talk about GENTRIFICATION: you go to city data, forum, and you complain about the gentrification of Oregon, all the wealthier people moving here and causing the cost of living to go up so the people who live here can’t afford it.and Citi data tells you, you are being a troll!.grouchy

“Well,” replied Carolyn, “you’re right about that.” “Yes, and I guess this age has what’s known as “class warfare.” All the much poorer people are all competing for the same services that the wealthier are getting. So guess who gets it?no middle class anymore, right? Can you believe, most of us used to be middle class? I can’t even believe that anymore. Did we ever used to be semi-middle class?I would settle for semi-.”Lycanthropy_by_Emotikonz

“Yes,” respectfully replied Caroline. “I have to say, I don’t really care for the “new  wealthy,” and all their arrogance about being “sustainable, organic, GREEN, carbon footprint responsible, and the only people on the face of the earth who really appreciate it.” “You mean, you don’t like how snotty and snobby that is?” I asked grinning.fuckinposersmiley-level1_don007

“No, replied Caroline getting hostile. “I don’t exactly like it at all!so now you know why I don’t like the little piss- offs! Like, being GREEN makes them the absolute fucking superior people of the planet! I mean, I don’t go around acting like that! If I did, I’d hate my guts!” –CHUCKLES GLEEFULY.frustrated

“that’s okay,” I replied to Carolyn. “I’ve read that other people who come here, get disgusted with them also.it’s not just you.””and,” I continued “how arrogant the new left is and the new liberals! They are the only ones who know what is right, and they will kill you off in the process, so you have to put up with their method.what I mean is, there is only ONE METHOD, and it’s theirs. And if you want your own, they’ll screw you.stewieplottingplz

“Now, do I go around acting like that? No I do not, they’re supposed to be plenty of opinions and plenty of right ways. But all we have now, is ONE LIBERAL ORDINATION, and nothing else.NO COMPETITION ALLOWED.one-size-fits-all, and it’s always their size. Absolutely DISGUSTING.”  “So much for a free country, eh?”.   “R.I.P. UNITED STATES.”zombiegrave

“”Will this be a short or long episode on your blog?” Asked Carolyn.she was hot already, and it was only May–time. It was 86°, and I started thinking, that I would have to start watering my big trees, all around the side of the house or they were going to die this summer – – ALREADY!_treehugger___reupload_by_Rebel2206

“it’s going to be very short,” I replied, looking through the phone book for hardware stores and lots of hose; the type that connected  a long way, to get around the side of the house, from the well house. At least I still had a well,that probably still worked. I only tested it a couple of years ago. So, I was ready to start buying hoses and start using the well, and its pump, and delay all the death of my trees..cool.gif taoemo

I decided to stay away from Jerry’s hardware, because they had sold me that large toilet that was crumbling into little pieces.who on earth makes a porcelain toilet, that starts to break off in pieces? Forget Jerry! Forget his hardware!_vulgarpurplemonkey__by_chimpantalones

I started to figure out just how much it was going to cost me, for hose and connectors, and some help doing this. But it was worth it, forget the blackberry bushes, this was more of an emergency! I don’t want all my trees to get FRIED this summer.5397.gifnusun

“also, I have been hearing,” continued Carolyn, helping herself to cold water. “– That tons and tons of people are moving to Oregon in Eugene, from all over the United States; the whole state is going to get SQUASHED. It’s already got Los Angeles traffic!”wosautos118.gifpimpgreencar

“it’s already got Los Angeles smog also,” I was very annoyed at the idea. “Why does everybody want to rush into one state, until there are millions of people from everywhere else, and they are just as miserable as they were in their original state!? By the time they’re through with Oregon, it’ll look exactly like downtown Los Angeles.”_AllEyesOnMe__by_AnimatedSuStenida_AllEyesOnMe__by_AnimatedSuStenida_AllEyesOnMe__by_AnimatedSuStenida_AllEyesOnMe__by_AnimatedSuStenida_AllEyesOnMe__by_AnimatedSuStenida_AllEyesOnMe__by_AnimatedSuStenida_AllEyesOnMe__by_AnimatedSuStenida_AllEyesOnMe__by_AnimatedSuStenida_AllEyesOnMe__by_AnimatedSuStenida_AllEyesOnMe__by_AnimatedSuStenida

“we’ve already got the migration of Los Angeles gangs, Los Angeles dope dealers, crime, smog and pollution, and massive amounts of cars and vehicles. You know what I’ve read? States that get like this, get so immovable, nobody could get anywhere,, or travel anywhere! In fact, that’s what happened to Detroit, all the businesses moved away because nobody could go out shopping, or get any place. In other words, it imploded!” I continued.Explosion_by_LedMaiden

“I didn’t know that,” said Carolyn. “So is that what we have to expect when this gets so bad no one can move?””let me try to remember, “I continued looking in the catalog of garden supplies. “I seem to remember that in that type of situation, it gets so congested, nobody can get anywhere and the first thing they do is desert all those areas, and go OUT.dumbass (1)

“After a certain amount of time, people start to move away.” I continued – “but it takes a long time of misery, before a lot of people realize they want to get out of the congestion and smothering population.for some reason,  people don’t move one at a time very much, they seem to move in huge DROVES, like cattle being herded. After all we are a herd species. – And once the herd starts to move away, then they do the same thing they did before. LEAVE._fuckthis__by_crakaemotes (1)

“But I don’t know,you know that’s hard to predict..” I kept looking at garden furniture. Why would I need garden furniture? “I think it has to reach a state of such misery and disgust, that it’s pretty much unlivable. ” “I guess you could say that’s exactly what’s happening now. Where would you go to if you had to move?”,blahblah

“I really have thought about that a lot,  and I decided I would go someplace that other people hated, and very few people live there. Kind of like North Dakota or South Dakota, or Nebraska, or someplace with terrible winters – so awful that people didn’t ever move there in huge masses, unless they were Eskimos. And they didn’t care.”shakezombie4679b62b12c944ee37d0c963de42560d

suddenly, I was moved by a brilliant idea. “I’ve got it I’ve got it!” I exclaimed. I know exactly where I will go if I get crowded out of this stupid area!feelingfreeplz

“MICHIGAN! MICHIGAN! SISS – boom–BAH! that is, if I can sell this stupid acreage to a bunch of Californians who are absolutely desperate to move here. MICHIGAN! The state of Michigan is practically EMPTY  because there’s no work there at all except for Maytag washing machine company. Something like that, one of those big fat Corporations!and Michigan has terrible weather!really awful winters!” I finished up.plzguin

“Don’t you have that friend in Michigan, in St. Joseph?” Asked Carolyn.”yes”, I replied, happily. “I should go and visit her and really look at Michigan as a place to actually live – –  because everybody is LEAVING MICHIGAN,, instead of going there. ” “And you say the weather is terrible?” Questioned Carolyn further._IceClimbing__by_DEVlANT

“Yes, but I really don’t know how the prices of places to live  are there. You would think that a lot of the prices would go down, since everybody’s left the state.I do know that they still have food growing there, which is good and they still have plenty of water. They just don’t have any employment.”_by_MisterIngo

“I sure would miss you,” said Carolyn, slobbering. “It would be terrible. You’re a native Oregonian and you’d leave the state forever?””I think we should probably go together,” I remarked.” We could get a little house together, and go and see my friend may be too. The only thing is there’s going to be lots of disadvantages also, of things that they don’t have in Michigan, that they have here in Oregon. ” “I can think of one thing right away,,” said Carolyn, snarling.. “Lots of hippies and lots of poor and lots of homeless – didn’t your friends say, it’s really hard on poor people there?”ahh

“I’m having an epiphany,” I continued. “Now that you’ve started that question, I think we should somehow investigate Michigan, what they’ve got there and what they don’t, and I think there are little towns still.” “We don’t have to go there right away,” continued Carolyn warming to the idea.  “We can look online and find out lots of stuff about it before hand.”_brainstorm__by_de_Mote

“I think Michigan would have one advantage,” I mused.. “What’s that,?” Asked Carolyn. “Well, it’s probably not as dumb as GERMANY has been lately. They let in tons and tons of unscreened foreign aliens, and now they have lots of rape gangs, burglars, criminals roaming everywhere, and Europe isn’t safe to vacation in .”dinyctis

“Michigan is starting to look really good.”imslow

“there are real disadvantages that Michigan has,” I continued, remembering. “There are a lot more black dangerous ghettos.. I know that my friend lives right next to one. They don’t have that stuff in Oregon, which is probably why everybody’s rushing here. One of the main reasons!bonk

“HEY, NO DIVERSITY IN OREGON! It’s all white bread! Ha ha!” Carolyn started laughing. “Yeah,” she said,” I don’t know how we’d handle that. Did you say that lots of people left CALIFORNIA, and came out here for the same reason?””you betcha! Hell, all those Californians left because La Raza and masses of illegal aliens  kept Swarming into California! But we have to remember it’s a completely different culture than it is here. I’m not sure we’d like it.”hooray

“I definitely like the idea of living in a very empty state,” continued Carolyn. “I think you’ve really got something there.” “It’s a very severe idea,” I said pondering. We would really have to go there, and do a lot of investigating on it. For example, what are their firearm laws like?” “are you sure you can leave your place, and not have a broken heart?” Continued Carolyn.manhug

“Well,” I replied”yes, I’m not sure. But look at all these dumb Californians they all decided to move here bring all their wealth,  and raise all the prices of everything, so people who are working poor can’t live here anymore.! Why would I want to keep living in that?”stupid

We decided to really investigate it, prices of little houses, all the different communities, traffic, prices of everything, and start to talk to my friend in Michigan about whether or not it was a good idea.at the very least, we could stop living in gentrified Oregon, which was starting to turn into gentrified Oregon/Los Angeles/Las Vegas/San Fernando Valley.teleport5397.gifnusun

And there were advantages about having horrible weather;  Michigan would discourage other people from moving there.  There really were good things about lots of snow, freezing cold, and being miserable a lot of the winter.– and having dangerous  miserable black ghettos that were always on the edge of explosion.childplay (1)

the fact is, living in very popular beautiful comfortable states, was not such a great advantage after all. Mainly, you got all the slackers from other areas, who saw a beautiful state (like Oregon)  and really thought it was a good idea to MOVE a large part of the United States there, and wreck it completely.– – which is exactly what they were doing._whereAreYou__by_MenInASuitcase

(Sandraminadotty, considering a move out of Oregon to Michigan, because the  weather is so miserable, it is EMPTY.  :)  )
