In a world where everything seems to be happening on a day to day basis, it’s easy to lose sight of the need of a new calendar. As I write this, it’s the second day of 2021, the year of our Lord.
I just wanted a quiet set of holidays – and for the most part, that’s what I got. Mission accomplished.
I’m waiting on that $600 of stimulus money that’s hitting bank accounts and mailboxes. I’m sure I will get mine this coming week. Like many Americans, I believe the stimulus should have been even more as the President wanted, but some stingy rich Republicans decided to play Scrooge against his wishes. I guess they easily forget that there are Republican voters that aren’t filthy rich like Mitch McConnell is and could use the help.
Mr. Biden will be President in two and a half weeks barring something unforeseen at the electoral college ceremonies – and even Republicans like the treacherous McConnell want to move on from the evidence of obvious voting fraud mentioned. That begs the question: if there’s fraud and no one mentions it, is it still fraud? But hey, maybe Biden can cram open the pocket books and give crumbs to us peasants.
I hope you know me well enough to know that I think there are sons of the wild jackass in BOTH parties – who don’t want to see the left and the right come together. They all benefit by Mr. Trump’s departure.
My left foot that I had mentioned a few weeks back seems to be getting better with the help of adhesive gauze pads and hydrogen peroxide. The skin around the wound is hardening, so I’m hoping it heals in the weeks and months ahead.
There was one good thing locally in 2020: the Bucs, Lightning, and Rays all made their respective playoffs – the first time that’s ever happened here. The Lightning won the Stanley Cup, the Rays made the World Series – and we’ll wait and see what treasures the Buccaneers bring.
Let’s try and make 2021 a good year – it can’t get any worse than 2020, right?
