Moments from the Weekend

Texas is beautiful, and didn't meet a single person down there who wasn't courteous. For the most part, they were beyond courteous and actually so very friendly that I could see myself living there and fitting in easily. I loved it. The people, the cities, the shops, the variety... It was like heaven.

I heard Terry Schiavo's voice last night on "Coast to Coast AM" and heard her say "Hi Daddy." I was stunned. No, I'm not one of those people who can hear hidden messages in recordings, or see subliminal messages in ads. I'm not that gullible. But I know what I heard and it was devistating.

HumbleDevilDog can now legitimately lay claim to my "Single Malt Scotch" cherry after providing me with two wonderful examples. I had never had a single malt before, and believed that I actually hated Scotch, based on a bad experience with what must have been a very cheap bar-blend. The Dalmore was light, fruity, slightly sweet, a spring evening. The other, the name escapes me completely, was dusky, dark, smokey and sultry, a night of pleasure and ardent, risky sex in a bottle.

So, HDD, thank you for taking that cherry and doing it with such finesse and elegance. And I know how you feel...

If it is considered humane to "allow her to die" by refusing her food and water, then why don't we change our penal codes to allow that as a method of execution? Take Scott Peterson for example. Strap him to a bed, give him a medication which renders him partially paralyzed and incapable of speaking for himself, and deny him food and water for as long as it takes. Obviously it's not cruel and unusual to do to an innocent woman who's only "crime" is being handicapped, so what's to keep us from using it in the state and federal prisons as a method of execution?

Works for me.

A kiss can be the perfect act, with absoltely nothing else required to delve into the dimly lit, sensual places I keep secret, fed by want, yearning, and promise. Aarrggh.

You know, I'm rather sick of being called a Nazi because I believe in the rule of law, that life is sacred, that people need to be responsible for themselves, that people should be able to spend their income as they see fit. Hardly a Nazi philosophy.

Well, let me tell you who the real Nazis are. The real Nazis are the ones who are currently acting to cleanse the population of those they see as unfit to live. It started with the unborn. Now it's the intellectually and communcatively disabled. Next? Perhaps the elderly, maybe the mentally "deficient" or maybe the irreparably mentally ill? Sound familiar? It should. Sounds like 1936, doesn't it? But I'm the Nazi. Go figure.

I want to move to Dallas/Ft. Worth. I want to be surrounded by the wonderful people I met there, and live in a place a wonderful as that pair of cities. Yes, I know. Want in one hand and...

It was absolutely, my pleasure! Meeting you was like waiting for the sunset to exhale. Until we meet again … fair winds and following seas.

Mama, Delfts, you two are some of the sweetest folks I have had the pleasure to meet! I had a GREAT time hanging with y'all and I hope this becomes a regular occurrence--and if you move down, expect a "Welcome Home" party of unbelievable proportions! :-D

P.S.: Zane *LOVES* you two! *grin*

Did someone say party? :-)

D's right, though. Y'all move down here, and we'll have a good party. I can promise that.

That was one fun weekend, wasn't it? :-D

Dear Mama, I had a really long and detailed reply to the Texas post but somehow it did not make it to your comment section. I live in the Dallas area and have the opposit view of Texas. In fact I have never met more rude and impolite people any where in my travels. (not to mention the Dallas area is now the leading metropolice in crime). I won't go into detail as I did on the last one but I am sure it is not the native Texans who are the problem most I have met are nice. But the majority of people I seen here are for sure have the worst manners it has been my displeasure to come across.

Hi Mama!

Sorry it has taken me so long to drop by and say hello.

One disagreement; you and the vast majority of conservatives are clearly not nazis, I will not characterize you folks as such. That is an unujustified libel.

With that said, I am pro-choice, pro-euthanasia and I regard life as sacred. Talk about a bundle of contradictions! Here is how it works:

The government should have NO say positive or negative on abortion. It should be between a woman and her doctor (the father should be involved but I still feel the final decision is the woman's). The only role the government should have is to use education to keep abortions safe, legal and RARE. I'm adopted so I have strong opinions on the RARE part. Same deal on euthanasia. NO government involvement. Keep it between families and physicians.

See? I have no policy of "cleansing" anyone except when the dogs get too smelly and get herded into the bathtub.

Mama, here is my promise: I will do my best not to oversimplify the conservative positions on issues when I blog. Because, yes, I can recast these positions as being Nazi positions by oversimplifying and distorting.

Would you be willing to do the same for us liberals? I know it's harder, and I'm already hesitant about this promise, but it's important. When we respect each other, we can work together rather than tearing each other apart.

I'm not the best at it, but I try to remember that we are all human, beautiful, imperfect and sometimes wrong. And that is alright.

Okay, enough rambling. Blessings to you and to Delfts!
