Sons

Well, Sure Happy It’s Thursday! Not really. What can I say, really, on this May 28, 2020. A few days ago I worried about an angry neighbor and now that seems so trivial as our world hurts and is riddled in so many cuts and scrapes. Yesterday, I got to forget a little bit, about the turmoil that was going on in the world as my son brought his family over for a visit. We got to play in the pool as Minneapolis rioted. People are angry and looking for fights right now. I know this all too well. The next time I may not be so lucky. I think of these things as I watch the kids play in the pool and hope my neighbors do not come out and harass us. Scary that I have to think that way.

This is the best therapy every, lifting my grandson!!! I can lift him no pain!

It was nice to catch up with my son and see that he has transitioned into a fine adult and Dad. It was not so long ago that I thought I was going to only get to see him during appointed visiting hours but I am so proud of him! Last week I remember telling Hubby how I would lecture the boys about staying out of trouble and if they ever got picked up and taken to jail that they were not to call me because I would never bail them out. Well, they never got in trouble, well that much trouble. I also used to tell them if they ever got stopped by the police to be polite, and never make any sudden movements! I grew up on the South side of the tracks and saw things most of my friends have never seen and never will. I have had undercover cops run across my front yard with their guns out and a helicopter hovering overhead with high powered guns pointed at our houses. Even my sister had guns drawn on her because she fit the description. Luckily, they did not pull the trigger that day. It sickens me every time I see the photo of Mr. George Floyd on the ground with a knee pressed to his neck and then to read the statement “I can’t breath.” My heart can’t imagine the pain his mother must feel each time she sees that photo. Somewhere, I think I have read this before, maybe years before and this was uttered by another person that was arrested or maybe I am dreaming but I am sure this has happened before and needs to stop before another son or daughter is murdered while others in authority watch. So, to you my friends and family, that are still posting your bullshit support for our bullshit president and such and about your liberties because you can’t shop and you have have to wear a mask, think about George Floyd and everyone that has had their rights denied (murdered) so they can never post a stupid meme, put down, joke, what ever – on social media again. I know Rodney King was a drunk but really, can’t we all just get along?

It was 110 F when this photo was taken. Much too hot!

To you dear reader, where ever in the world you are, thank you for stopping by. May you find peace today in your world. Hugs to you that need it and where ever you are going, get there.

    I smiled the first time I saw the first photo. πŸ™‚ He’s so lucky he has a really cool grandmother. πŸ™‚

    I read some news about the riots. In Minneapolis they burn a very large building. Some other in other city protested on the highway. I hope it doesn’t get worse.

    Stay safe there πŸ™‚ Good afternoon from the other side of the globe. πŸ™‚

    1. Just woke up and boy does this reminds me of April 1992 and being in Downtown Los Angeles and trying to hurry home with my first husband as we were on a bus trying to get home from a pre-natal visit. It was scary then and scary now. My son is out there in the Los Angeles area and I hope he stays out of the trouble. I gotta call him soon.
      Good morning! It is 3:05AM πŸ™‚

        I Googled about the April 1992. I just knew that there was such big a riot in LA in 1992. I hope things doesn’t get worse and your son won’t be affected by it.

        Good afternoon! It’s 1.26 pm here. πŸ™‚

      2. Yes, there was a riot that started over the beating of Rodney King by Los Angeles Police Officers and it was videotaped aw well. It started a riot in Los Angeles. Not sure how it affected the rest of the US during that time as I only cared about what was going on in my immediate world at the moment. I called my son and warned him to be careful a he is a man of color.

        Good morning! It is 4:11 AM here

        Oh my… I hope it doesn’t get worse. It is so surreal reading the news about riots in the States. I hope the news about SpaceX sending two astronauts to ISS will unite people.

        Good evening! it’s 8.35 pm. πŸ˜€

      4. I watched the spaceX lift-off and actually cried a little. It was that cool. Right now, the world needs millions of Grama’s and Mothers to hug the world and make things better.

        Couldn’t agree more. πŸ˜€ And it would be a waste of time if we don’t use this critical moment to learn something about humanity.
