I am old, weather ...and politics

Doctor prescribed a big plastic boot to hold my foot (mostly) immobile while my healing "catches up". I will try anything. It is comfortable enough but I do cheat inside it a little cuz it slooooooows me down.
Downside: mark your calendrr cuz this is the day- With my cane and now the boot a checkout girl in the market asked if I have a Senior Discount Card.*facepalm*
It's the boot right? Riiiight???

Weather. I havent wanted to mention for fear of jinxing but the weather has been pretty darn good. Cool even. Been using blankets at night. Leaves began turning 2 weeks ago. Trees are just not recovering. No fall foliage again this year. On the other hand I do not like heat and humidity.

How the BLANK did it get to be September? It's barely gotten to be summer!

I've no idea what to do about helping after the hurricane disaster. Are you doing anything?

It is Thursday. Screw it!
Moving into political: You can not convince me that all this political hate hasn't emboldened. My neighborhood is blooming with confederate flags. Even American flags are being replaced with them. Men and boys are cultivating the 'redneck' look with shaggy beards, rusted pickups, slogans and battered hats. Prob guns, I mean really. We are Yankee Land but no one told these morons.

Today at work I saw a coworker who I know works nights. I asked why he was awake and he said,"They're filming a new ad and I'm going to be in it." I grinned and said, "They picked the right boy!"
Okay this is how WEIRD my world feels right now. Ready for this? I realized that in the current climate there was room to take my comment in a bad way. So I went after him and said, "I can't believe I'm even going to say this. When I said (previous comment), I meant "boy" as in MALE. Ok?" And I don't know if he even picked up on what I was driving at but it UPSETS me that I felt uncomfortable enough with my world that I felt I had to clarify with a black male coworker (and myself) that I was //not// calling him "boy" or anything even close to that.
o.O
Damn f-ing Confederate Moron WS neo nazis! Out of my country!!

Remember my asking if we were still getting a woman on the $20? Turns out as of today the answer is "Woman? No. Black woman? Hell no!"
