    GM TODville.

    Way behind, as usual, but here’s a couple of treats (pardon if this was posted earlier this week, but a joy to behold and savor):

    And to get us in the holiday spirit, here’s a reminder of snow here in the village (which lots here didn’t like, but click on the GIF for a reminder. 🙂 ).

    Good Morning TOD’ers. Have finished eating all the leftover pies from the holiday feast yet? ☺
    All the talk about Thanksgiving almost drove me to buy a pumpkin pie … however I RESISTED the urge. I am saving my indulging till Dec … then I shall let the dessert floodgates open wide. 😂 … LOL

      I had ten for Thanksgiving. Decided to add a small pumpkin pie to the large Costco apple pie because everything I saw showed pumpkin pie as a holiday traditional food. No one ate the pumpkin pie so I am thinking of taking it to a weekly meeting on Wednesday, but am afraid everyone is stuffed from the holiday so won’t want it. What do you think?

        That is a great idea OG, to take it to your weekly meeting. Perhaps you can freeze it and take it in a week or two … I am sure they may be ready for a nice treat by then ☺

      I agree with Common. If all the groups that constitute the Democratic coalition had voted for the Hillary at the same levels as the Black women, our country would have been spared from the nightmare of Donald Trump.

    An oldie but goodie… I wish you ‘enough’

    Recently, I overheard a mother and daughter in their last moments together at the airport as the daughter’s departure had been announced. Standing near the security gate, they hugged and the mother said:

    “I love you and I wish you enough.”

    The daughter replied, “Mom, our life together has been more than enough. Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too, Mom.” They kissed and the daughter left.

    The mother walked over to the window where I sat. Standing there, I could see she wanted and needed to cry.

    I tried not to intrude on her privacy but she welcomed me in by asking, “Did you ever say good-bye to someone knowing it would be forever?” “Yes, I have,” I replied. “Forgive me for asking but why is this a forever good-bye?”

    “I am old and she lives so far away. I have challenges ahead and the reality is the next trip back will be for my funeral,” she said.

    When you were saying good-bye, I heard you say, “I wish you enough.” May I ask what that means?”

    She began to smile. “That’s a wish that has been handed down from other generations. My parents used to say it to everyone.” She paused a moment and looked up as if trying to remember it in detail and she smiled even more.

    “When we said ‘I wish you enough’ we were wanting the other person to have a life filled with just enough good things to sustain them”. Then turning toward me, she shared the following, reciting it from memory,

    “I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.

    I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.

    I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.

    I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.

    I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.

    I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.

    I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye.”

    She then began to cry and walked away.

    They say it takes a minute to find a special person. An hour to appreciate them. A day to love them. And an entire life to forget them.

        It would seem. They have lost to the Buckeyes more than they have won this big game….at least Coach Harbaugh has the NFL as an option:)

      Yes. Of course, they do. The Black President of the United States experienced racism right before our eyes so this shouldn’t even be a question.

      Sarada Pedi (wrote for President Obama) just said “Making America Great Again” is little more than a slogan, isn’t represented in any policy other than just erasing the presidency of Barack Obama. Amen to that!

    Malia smoking video, my, my, my.. Who are her so call friends? I’m not trying to make a big deal out of this, because Lord knows she is not the only one

    • 65 hopefruit2
      November 25, 2017 at 11:12 pm

      To be honest, we know very little about what is going on in that video. And I don’t think it has anything to do with her friends. It has everything to do with the creepy, RW media who have no business stalking a 19-year old college student, let alone attacking her for doing nothing illegal or inappropriate.

      A better use of the media’s (and our) scrutiny and outrage is that dangerous pedophile Roy Moore who’s running for Senate in Alabama…

    Wishing for Mueller Monday 🙂

    SNL cold open has been good so far, maybe Kate McKinnon will do a parody of Sessions inquiring if there were any Russians in the room. Jackass. Hope he keeps up his sense of humour in jail (not that I know if he will end up there but one can hope …).

    CSPAN is airing a really interesting panel of White House speechwriters for Presidents Nixon through Obama right now.

  32. 77 Dudette
    November 25, 2017 at 10:14 pm

    Panel is asked what advice they’d give to Trump’s speechwriters. Bob Rackleff, former writer for Jimmy Carter says just find another job, nothing good will come from writing for that man. Btw, Mr. Rackleff is a Dem running for Congress in Florida (District 2 – Panama City) for 2018 to replace Republican Neal Dunn. I’m now following him on Twitter and am about to make a donation.

    Was going through some oldies in my music library and ran across this song from Thievery Corporation that I’d totally forgotten about. It’s from an album that released in 2002. It’s eery how closely the lyrics fit Cheetolini’s fake presidency and life in general.

    Hoping that Mueller drops some more indictments this week. I know he’s being methodical and careful but wish he’d hurry it up. We have a sexual predator, racist ignoramus in the White House who spends days playing golf and grifting. He needs to go.

    Hope all of you have a great week and keep resisting.

      This brought me to tears of gratitude because it reminded me that not all people are like the ones who have placed hateful people in positions of power. It is hard to have the kind of faith that PBO has in most of us when the worst voices are the ones that are amplified, but it really is as Anne Frank wrote, that most people are basically good.
