Winter is finally here. Actually it has come and gone before, but maybe it will stay cold. Not that I like the cold, but I like for winter to be winter, the way it was in them Arizona mountains I used to live in. Here in Texas, as usual, winter can be cold, or it can be warmish, or even warmly. Occasionally actually real no-fooling warm. I‘d forgotten about that good ol‘ weird Texas weather.

Me, I think I‘m getting a bit S.A.D. There are pills for that, so time to call up the doctor. Well, ya rarely talk to your doctor, but doctor‘s nurse. Or medical assistant as they started calling them in Arizona. Although I did actually talk to my actual doctor a couple times in Arizona—something to be said about living out in the country. And now I hear that there will soon be high-speed internet out there too. Golly!

One of my grandsons just brought me a donut. I have good grandsons.

Well now, according to the Enlightened Ones, who are better than us and make sure we know it, this is a racisst saying:

“There exists a false aristocracy based on family name, property, and inherited wealth. But there likewise exists a true aristocracy based on intelligence, talent, and virtue.”
— Thomas Jefferson

I don‘t know about you, but I‘m starting to get tired of listening to all these fookin‘ idiots who are better than me (according to them). Mainly, or especially, because they are not. And while I am willing to live and let live, they are not. I don‘t think they have thought that one through.
