The two-faced hypocrisy of mental mediocrity and moral (as well as literal) bankruptcy…

c 1

Obama, show us your birth certificate… and no, I won’t show my taxes.

c 2

Hillary, you used non-secure servers for your emails… and don’t worry about my family when they do the same thing.

c 3

I believe in the bible, and the sanctity of marriage… just ask any of my wives.

c 4

Make America great again… I’m talking to you, Putin.

c 5

I am going to drain the swamp and hire the best people… you know, until they get indicted and sent to prison.

President Trump Gets Briefed By Senior Military Leadership At White House

I am a self-made man, I pulled myself up by my bootstraps… my solid gold, diamond-encrusted bootstraps,  that my dad paid to have repaired whenever I broke them.

Lock her up… wait, no, not my daughter, but you can lock up her husband if you want to.

President Trump Gets Briefed By Senior Military Leadership At White House

I care about the poor… the white ones.

c 9

I mean, I want to make the poor better off… as long as I can do it with tax cuts for the rich.

c 10

And if the poor don’t have any healthcare… won’t that just end their suffering more quickly?

c 11

Build a wall… or a fence… or whatever, just keep people worried about the ‘invasion’ so they don’t think about other things.

c 12

The Mexicans are rapists and criminals and drug smugglers… and they keep expecting me to pay them when they work in my hotels and resorts.

c 13

Hey, the dictators that I like keep strongly denying they ever did anything wrong… so why should I listen to my own security experts?

c 14

The economy is doing great… and I know, Obama did most of the hard work, and things were already getting better, but I did totally deregulate the corporations that are destroying the planet, and that helped too, right?

President Trump Speaks On Infrastructure Meeting Held At Trump Tower

I have great respect for women… I never grab them when anybody is watching.

President Trump Speaks On Infrastructure Meeting Held At Trump Tower

I am a business man, I make the best deals… anybody else who was running for president would have had to pay way more money to make the porn star they were having an affair with shut up.

c 17

This is a witch hunt, there is no collusion… and I don’t even know what collusion is, but even if I did it, it isn’t a crime, and even if it was, you can’t do anything to me while I am president.

c 18

There are fine people on both sides, including the KKK and the white supremacists, and… okay, when you really look at all this taken together, I am a huge ass. Now go buy a MAGA hat… that was made in China.

Of love, snow and flowers… part 3…

a 1

Quality time with your kids is priceless. Especially if your kids are as sweet, kind, beautiful, funny and smart as mine are. A nice lady took that picture of Mollie and I… Mollie and me?

a 2

We stayed overnight in a cute little cabin in Big Bear, way up in the mountains over Los Angeles.a 3

It was ideal for us.

a 4

It was comfy and cozy, and had a kitchen. But it wasn’t so fancy… with a hot tub or anything… that would make you want to stay there every minute and not go out and play in the snow.

a 5

We each had our own room… although, I have to say that the pull-out bed in the couch was a little weird. My feet were much higher than my head.

a 6

We had some good bonding-relaxing time at the cabin.

a 7

Mollie did some yoga. And we meditated together. I have a new app on my phone just for that. We started a puzzle. We talked. We laughed. I love that kid.

a 8

The view from the deck was not too shabby.

a 9

And we were surrounded by snowy wilderness.

a 10

And let us not forget the flowers we saw on the way to the mountains.

a 11

The spectacular super-bloom from the heavier-than-usual Southern California rains this year.

a 12

That was a good two days.

Of love, snow and flowers… part 2…

a 1

Just more pictures…

a 2

Of me and my younger daughter, Mollie.

a 3

Just a short drive inland from those Southern California white-sand beaches, past the palm trees waving in the warm breeze, you see snow covered mountains looming in the distance.

a 4

Goodbye, traffic and smog.

a 5

Hello, snowy peaks!

a 6

Hello, fresh air.

a 7

Hello, magical alpine wilderness.

a 8

Hello, spectacular vistas.

a 9

Hello, small, rocky island in an icy lake.

a 10

Hard to believe that a few short minutes before, we were still down there…

a 11

… looking up at those mountains…

a 12

And if, on your way, you just happen to drive past some hills covered with an eruption of flowers, well, so much the better, right?

Of love, snow and flowers… part 1…

a 1

My younger daughter, Mollie, just turned 20, so we had a little daddy-daughter adventure trip. We saw snow, and we saw flowers. And we shared love. Hence, the clever name of this series of posts.

a 2

Now, I know I share a lot of photos of flowers on this blog, so you would be forgiven in thinking: ‘oh boy… more flowers’… in a very sarcastic tone. But, because of the unusual amount of rain in Southern California this year, we are having what is called: Superblooms!!! Super blooms? Super-blooms?

a 3

In short, the wildflowers are going crazy. And the hills… that just happen to be between San Diego and the place where we went to see snow… were covered in vibrant orange poppies as well as yellow wild mustard and purple sage.

a 4

And the rain translated to snow in the higher elevations.

a 5

Mollie, growing up in San Diego, is more familiar with beaches and sand than snow. Of course she had to throw a snowball at me.

a 6

Watch out for the camera! Did I ever mention that her older sister, when she threw her first snowball, on a mountain in Washington State, managed to hit me right in the… uh… not-snow balls?

a 7

Anyway, I have a lot of photos.

a 8

We rented a little cabin up in Big Bear, near all the ski resorts. Just so you know, this is all just a few hours from where we live, and even less distance from where Mollie goes to college. If she doesn’t see snow that often, it isn’t because there isn’t any. California has everything.

a 9

Speaking of super-blooms, I will try to drive out into the Anza-Borrego desert before the wildflowers out there die. That is supposed to be spectacular. Like a once-in-a-lifetime sight.

a 10

I will try to mix in some posts about other stuff, so you don’t get bored.

a 11

But we had so much fun. We laughed. We goofed off. We did stuff.

a 12

And spring is coming.

Animal encounters…

a 5

So I am at work the other day, at my new job as a private security officer at a medical research facility, and a guy knocks on my office door. He didn’t speak much English. He kept beckoning me and saying; “Geico, Geico!” I followed him, and found this rather large lizard inside the building. After shooing the reptile outside, I realized that the man had been trying to say “lizard”, but the thing that popped into his head was the most famous lizard he could remember… the Geico Gecko.

a 7

Later, I was taking a picture of the sunset with my phone, and I noticed something unusual…

a 8

I zoomed in a little…

a 9

There were clouds that all had similar mouths, like fishes… or snakes… eating each other.

a 10

They stayed in the sky without moving for quite a while.

a 12

Also, there is a really cool hawk that I have seen over the course of the last few days. I don’t know what kind of hawk it is.

a 13

But I do like hawks. I need to get a better phone. This one takes lousy pictures.

Just bee yourself…

Or would that be: just bee your self?
