I hate your hair.

I watch a lot of baseball, football and some hockey.  Not a lot of the other sports.  If I could, I would sneak into these player's locker rooms with scissors and electric razor in hand.  I've about reached my breaking point.  This stubble crap sexy?  No.  Old time hunters used to come out of the woods after a few days looking like that and that's what you remind me of.  Then there's the really curly, longer hair sticking out from their caps and almost making the hats pop off.  These are followed by a couple more complaints.  Wavy hair past the shoulders getting in the way of seeing what you're doing.  Now for the (to be polite, I'll call them beards).  I'm amazed you don't show up ready to play with food of assorted colors mixed in the hair.  I'm waiting and I do expect it to happen, for a small bird or similar in size animal to pop its head out as the game begins.  I haven't figured out why you're doing this as yet.  Do you think you're sexy or attractive?  Think again.  Is it a form of rebellion? probably not.  Maybe then, just maybe, because it's too much trouble  to go to a hairdresser or barber.  If you're a pro player, it's certainly not the cost.  You'll have to help me  on this one.  I'm lost for answers......................marge  PS.  I did enjoy Mark the Bird Fidrych of many years ago but he's the only exception.

Black men dying. Now white officers dying also.

I don't even pretend to understand what has been happening these recent weeks.  There are right now, not facts being shown, just pictures of these men being shot to death.  Horrible horrible horrible.  I can't help but I can empathize in bewilderment with their loved ones.  I feel, through fear, by all, irrational emotions are taking over.  Is generalized panic setting in?  The madness just keeps getting more and more frequent.  Outrage is to be expected but it alone won't stop these incomprehensible happenings.  There is a better way.  We must find it.  Now....................marge   PS.  And now, a few hours later, white officers, in the line of duty, to protect all are openly ambushed and murdered.  There is no justification for these killings.  All of these deaths should not have happened.  Because of  misguided or (warped) souls, in or out of any uniform, we may find ourselves with fewer people who want to sign on to serve and defend.  Then where will we be?  NRA vigilante groups running our towns and streets?  Think long and hard.............again....marge

Baby killers on the loose.

Another baby in Michigan shot and only two years old.  How and when did we put the mind set into people that the only way to protect themselves is to carry arms and use them the second they feel  threatened or offended.  It has become a badge of honor to shoot first and think after.  Never mind little children keep getting in the way.  Not the shooter's fault, even if he/she didn't take the time to aim.  And that is something they probably were never taught, among many other things.  Must we wait for this generation to die out?  Is that the solution?  How many more little ones will get hurt or die while we 'wait'?  Just getting the guns off of the streets and the warped mind owners that have and use them is the unbelievable task we face.  How do we start?  I know volunteer people are out there trying but they can't do it without help.  Someone, anyone, don't give up pointing us in the right direction..........................marge

Fireworks and fishing

Playing with fireworks, adults and children is the same as going boating and stacking the life jackets in a corner.  Unconscious people won't float if they aren't wearing their jacket.  If it's not important to you, think of the relative that loves you most..........................marge

Heartfelt hugs

How many times do we give a quick hug out of habit.  They are nice but not the ones that really count.  When you hug someone, put your heart into it.  Give it because you want to, not because you're supposed to.  True hugs can cure unspoken emotional pain, loneliness and suffering.  There isn't a time when all of us haven't needed a true hug.   So get out there and do your job!.................................marge

Children. Silent victims for maybe even decades.

They didn't know it though.  They were never told.  They certainly didn't know to tell anyone.  They didn't have to like it, were embarrassed by it but still, never said a word.  A crime?  Never entered their little minds.  If time doesn't heal it then time may blunt the child's memory, or so it would seem.  And that's the magic word, 'seem'.  I can't answer that.  Just love them and especially talk to them, for their and your sakes.......................marge

I would feel so proud

I watch and listen to the parades of our and our allies soldiers and law enforcement people and how they salute with great pride.  I've always wanted to 'salute'.  I haven't earned the right and that saddens me.  I feel their pride  but I miss the privilege of saluting..............marge
