Just got back from the dentist. Good news! I got another clean bill of health. Oh there is that one tooth that is ready to collapse but I've had that diagnosis for about fifteen years. I think I have a few more years. I love the dentist I go to now. So convenient, friendly and cost effective.
I go to work today and then when I come home tonight I enter into my California State of Mind mode. I'm starting to get excited now folks!
This weekend I'll start packing but I won't be packing much. Just five days worth of underwear and socks. One pair of pants, a festive shirt for my "The Price is Right!"
appearance (and I an convinced I will appear on that happy show). A sweater (or two) but only one other shirt change. Always in past vacations I've taken too many shirts which I invariably never wear. If I need another shirt (or two), I'll just buy them in LA. I hear LA has a lot of stores.
I'm getting a little of the subject here but I have to tell you I am thoroughly enjoying the Republican's dilemma now that Ted Cruz's qualifications for president are finally being challenged. It's about time. Holy smokes, he WAS born on foreign soil. In fact, up until eighteen months ago he held a dual citizenship for Canada and the U.S. Karma is so sweet. Remember all the hub bub about Barack Obama not being eligible to run for president because of the claims that he was actually born in Kenya? And the further irony is that Donald Trump, who got his start with the false Birther argument against Barack Obama, is the one who brought the subject up. I wonder why the media hasn't brought up this valid issue before. I'm loving seeing the smug Ted Cruz now giving tortured arguments that he really is qualified to run for president even though he WAS born on foreign soil. Wonder how many of those low information voters in Iowa will do with this information. I have to admit folks I do sometimes enjoy these schadenfreude moments.
