"...and has spoken through his angles."


DAYUM you're good, multigraincracker!

December 31, 2021

Ah, well, y'know...

One might say she was "everybody's 'girl'." A genuine "America's Sweetheart."

I worked in entertainment coverage for years. Never heard a single word about her that wasn't complimentary at the least, and almost literally adoring at the most.

Yeah. No kidding.

May you be buried with a bag of gummy bears, dear lady.

I interviewed her in her dressing room at one point, and she had a big jar of gummy bears close at hand. She grabbed a fistful and invited me to do the same. Sharing gummy bears with Betty White!

RIP, dear lady.

Just BEYOND shameful and disgusting.

Any of our law enforcers tracking these tweet posters?

A seriously GREAT meditation, Baitball Blogger!

Thank you so much for this!

Our precious planet. We need to keep Mother Earth HIGH UP in our thoughts - while we still have a little time to save her.

Sheesh. No kidding. A doubly awful day for you.

In a way, you’ve given us something ELSE to think about on January 6th. Triple - if you also count what went on in Washington DC. As this old news junkie inevitably watches the news coverage of this upcoming January 6th and all that makes it newsworthy, I’ll also be thinking of you - and the two of them, reunited in Heaven on the same day.

Awwwwww, thanks, Atticus!

That’s a good way to look ahead.

Farewell, 2021.

Hello, 2022!

December 31, 2021

Gee, who could have guessed?

December 31, 2021

Oh man...


Stay safe everybody! And if evacuations MIGHT be coming, do yours sooner than later!

Welcome to DU, Diablo del sol!

Yep. Been there, done that. Grab the pets and some pet food and your already-packed "away bag", and go.

It's actually a good reminder for right now. Is EVERYBODY equipped with some sort of "away bag"? Better to put one together now while you have "presence of mind" because there's NO emergency breathing down your neck. Another reason why we don't have outdoor cats. If they're insiders, they're easier to round up and evacuate with.

About calimary

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.
