Hot days on Poverty Hill
Hope everyone is doing good, Lordy it's been hot here on Poverty Hill, looks like we're in for a hoooooooottttttt summer this year down south. Went down to the creek yesterday and the fish were even sweating.......now thats hot......laffin. I've gone into my summer mode now, I get outside early in the morning and late in the afternoon, I just can't handle the heat like I could before. I'm sort of lost though, this is the first year in a long time that I haven't planted a vegetable garden, this was due to my being sick and not able to do it..I'm sure lost though, cause I don't have an excuse to go to the garden and lean on my hoe...Oh well there's always next year.
I've been watching the news a lot lately and it seems this country is getting into a big mess. The main thing I'm concerned with is that it seems that the people of the US have absolutely no say so in anything. I've heard it blamed on Democrats and I've heard it blamed on Republicans.....and no one seems to know how to fix the problem. Thats the main thing that bothers me, our country is severly screwed with all the politicians that we have in office because none of them seem to know anything except that its not their fault. I think we need to fire em all and just hire a new bunch, Democrats and Republicans. Maybe then someone would know something. I really hate to complain but I've been around long enough to watch this country go from the most powerful nation in the world, that everyone loved and wanted to come to.......to one of the most hated and the least popular in the world. Now how the hell did that happen...........? OK, i won't harp on politics because thats a whole new can of worms.
One thing that I'd like to mention is that I lost a good friend, a twenty year old young man that was wise way beyond his years. He lost the fight to Pulmary Hypertension a few days ago and it has shocked everyone in our PH family. He was a very popular young man that had touched the lives of many, all who knew him loved him and admired his strength and courage. Mason Hoffman we will miss you my friend.
Well I guess i need to get going and make sure everything is going on just the way it should on Poverty Hill. If yall ever by this way be sure to stop by, our door is always open to our friends.
