I have had a lot of time for quiet reflection lately. Some of it has been not so quiet as I would share with Far Guy from my spot on the couch. Sometimes I would get his attention and he would join me for an in depth discussion. More often than not he would holler "Turn the channel, you are supposed to be resting."
Tomorrow things are supposed to change, quite magically at noon when Obama takes the oath of office. I am sure that gas prices will go down immediately and food prices in the stores will be immediately adjusted. 401K's and investments will immediately be restored to their highest values. Everyone that wants a job will have one. Homes that were purchased on a wing and prayer for credit, will magically be worth way more than what they were appraised at. Short sales will be a thing of the past. No one will be homeless and no one will be hungry. Everyone will have access to health care. Things are going to be just hunky dory and milk and honey will flow through the streets once again. I am looking forward to all these wonderful changes, I just can't wait..but I won't be holding my breath. I hope he wears some kind of head covering so he doesn't catch some deadly virus, with ears the size of his, he must have to be extra careful..maybe he should wear a scarf.
The excitement totally escapes me. The Media frenzy is laughable, and often I view it as a comedy. Over 100 Million dollars will have been spent, couldn't they have just done a quiet potluck picnic. Well with that much being spent on just one day when we are in a Recession that is looking more like a Depression everyday..it seems like a rather high-falutin beginning to a bad nightmare.
I do have a couple of questions..where is that puppy? And where does the line form for the Rose Colored Glasses? :)
