For those of you who don't know me all that well, I love British comedians. Tracey Ullman has been one of my favorites. It was in this very video that I first saw her. Besides, I was a Beatles fan and I had the worst crush on Paul McCartney. I think this video is so cute. Please enjoy.

Last night I had a bout with my usual insomnia. So, I decided to catch up on the news. I was reading the LA Times online and there was this story about the Faux News poster boy for right-wing propaganda and spreading conspiracy theories, Sean Hannity. Apparently, Keurig pulled their ads from Hannity's show because they didn't like Sean defending Roy Moore. So Sean took to Twitter to bad mouth Keurig coffee makers to which Seans fans started to post pictures of destroyed Keurig machines. Now, these Keurigs retail at $99+. How stupid can people get? You have to read this.

|Seriously, I did.|
I'm a little late posting today because I went to work out and almost forgot I had to have my blood drawn today. Yeah. I hadn't eaten yet so I was in the clear because it had to be a fasting draw. Everything worked out fine. The doctor is keeping a close look on my blood sugar since fat old people like me are more likely to have diabetes. No, I'm not diabetic, yet. But I'm working on it. Aahahahaaa! Really I'm not working on it. My doctor was also worried because my white cell count was 15 last time I had my blood drawn. He thinks I should see a Hematologist but he won't listen to me when I tell him that my back is arthritic. My white count is going to be up for a reason. Arthritis automatically raises the white cells in your body because they are fighting inflammation from arthritis. OY!! Not to mention the guy that drew my blood wrapped my arm with enough co-ban to tie up 5 people. Shit! Just put a band-aid on the bitch and leave the wrap for mummies.
Next week David will be off for Thanksgiving week. My incarceration starts this Friday. Oh whoa is me. Yeah, I'll have to endure the sound of daytime trash TV for 10 days. ~sigh~ Sometimes I wish I had a large sprawling home where I could escape the sounds of Jerry Springer and Maury. But not this lifetime. All I gotta say is there better be no Christian hell when I die because I'll be so fucking pissed if I have to endure those two guys and the shouting trailer trash scum from the audience for the rest of my afterlife.
David is home for lunch. The first this out of his mouth was, "you took the car this morning." Well yes, I wasn't going to walk four miles to get my blood drawn and all. He was complaining that I parked the car too far into the carport. He should be happy I parked the way I did and not out in the street. Well, I have a deep hole to go dig to hide David's body in and then laundry to fold. Y'all have a magical day.

Well, this is a very late post. Sorry. We have a cold front coming down our way tomorrow morning and the temps will be dipping into the 40's again. Right now I'm on the floor with my lower back planted firmly on a skinny pillow and a heating pad on top of that; my legs are propped on the seated cushions of the love seat. It was the only way to ease my pain. And NO I ain't gonna get another lumbar injection. My mind is made up. I'd rather have my eyes plucked out than have another needle enter my spine. My brother told me about a drug he's taking to easy his lower back pain. It's called Diclofenac. I already checked out the side effects and all the info on Drugdigest.com. Has anyone ever taken that for pain? I know it's an anti-inflammatory drug but has anyone had success with managing their pain while taking this drug? Did it help you? Please let me know.
Anywho, right now I'm comfy cozy. Lucy has been my nurse. Yeah, she's sleeping on the job again right next to me. She knows when I'm having pain. Last night she slept next to me while I was binge-watching a Korean TV series on Hulu. I love Korean shows. I dearly love their historical stories. Since I'll be up again tonight, I'll have to find either another series to dive into or just catch up on my book reading.
Oh, an update on that Texas church shooter. The Air Force neglected to enter the information about Kelly's domestic violence as well as his psychological issues. The man was held at a mental health hospital in New Mexico after assaulting his wife and child. He was there for a year, he escaped and was caught at a bus station in El Paso Texas. He was discharged and moved back home to New Braunfels. One witness to the shooting inside the church was shot in the arm and played dead. She said Kelly was wearing black tactical gear, shooting as he walked down the aisle of the church. She said women and children screamed as he shot them.
I know it's horrific. But if it stirs something inside you to call and bitch out your state representative and senators to grow a pair or get a spine and do something about restricting automatic and semi-automatic rifles or even high magazine ammo clips that would start something. Just keep badgering them until they do something to get this rolling in the direction of stopping the carnage.

My weekend was going great, yes it was until an alert came on a ticker during the Texans football game that there was a shooting in Sutherland Springs. That's here in Texas. Where church, football, and BBQ are king. It's just a 15-minute drive from where we live, In our own backyard. That town is 1/10th the size of Seguin where we live, it's a tiny, tiny town of 600 people.
This morning The whole story unfolded that It was a young man of 26, who apparently lived in New Braunfels, drove to Sutherland Springs and shot 26 parishioners dead and 20 injured. One 5-year-old was shot 4 times. He was transported to University Hospital via AirLIFE helicopter. He survived after emergency surgery. His mother and 2 sisters were among the dead. The age range of the dead was one 18-month-old infant girl to 77 years old, 12 children died. One family lost 8 members of their family, which included children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. The 18-month-old infant girl was one of the children of that family. It was a tiny church where no one could hide from a gunman. The motive is believed to be domestic. his in-laws went to the First Baptist Church. Apparently, the mother-in-law sent Kelly a threatening text. They were not in the church at the time of the shooting.
Kelly used a Rugar AR-15 assault rifle which he bought in San Antonio. I'm wondering why the persons that sold Kelly the guns didn't see the bad-conduct discharge from the Air Force for spousal and child abuse. Why was he sold the guns? That's the big question. Democrats on Capitol Hill are talking gun control again. Republicans don't want to hear about it. You can read everything here about the shooting if you want. I have a house to clean and laundry to start.

We had two very cold mornings this weekend. This morning it was also cold in the low 40's but not as bad as the mid 30's of Saturday and Sunday. David forgot to bring in my hanging baskets for me. I thought the petunias were going to die but they survived the weekend cold. Amazing! I still intend to repot them this week. I wasn't able to do it earlier last week because I couldn't find the right sized pots. I found a butt load of them in the garden shed. I really need to clean that thing out.
