A Baby Step For Precious Babies

So, well, Donald Trump signed "something" which somehow stops the policy of separating families at the border and you know as well as I do that he had no idea what he was signing but he seemed to finally grasp that even tyrants can't get away with concentration camps for children.
For very long, anyway.
And let me say- I say his name. I speak it. I am not afraid to name this monster. Fuck that shit. I'm not superstitious. Okay, maybe I am but not about this. He ain't Voldemort and the utterance of his name has no magical powers.
Donald Goddam Trump.
And that's how I feel about that.

But now the questions remain of course on how we get these families reunited which have already been so cruelly separated and in what sort of facilities are the intact families going to be held?

This all remains to be seen but I have been heartened today by hearing an interview with a border guard who quit his job when he was told to tell some siblings that they were not allowed to hug each other.
"No," he said. "You can tell them that but I will not."
It is also heartening that Steve Schmidt, a prominent Republican strategist, has quit the party calling it "corrupt, indecent and immoral."

Perhaps people are finding their souls and their balls. Of course some people have neither.
What in hell is Sarah Huckabee? She certainly doesn't appear to be human. Where do they find these soulless white bitches in the Trump administration?

So. Yeah. Things appear to be happening. Here in Lloyd what's happening is the heat. Sorry to repeat myself. I'm still just not used to it.

Anyone wearing jeans in this heat deserves to die. 

Every summer it comes as a shock. We're not getting our afternoon rains to cool things off and I came to the absolute realization that walking five miles on asphalt, even on a mostly-shaded canopy road is tantamount to a death wish.
I can't do it.
Not the seven miles, not the six miles, not the five miles. Today I think was the worst. Honestly, if there had been any way to get out of that last mile I would have done it. However, there was not and so I walked it and then I got in my car, turned the AC up to freezing, drank my ice water and drove to the Wacissa where I got out of my car, unloaded the pockets of my cargo shorts, walked to the water and dove in, full mermaid.
It was arguably the most heavenly experience I've ever had which did not involve a newborn. I could feel every molecule in my body screaming in profound relief and joy.
That may have saved my life.
I hung out a little while and sat in the cold water and watched kids jumping off the rope swing, listening to their bragging banter. One of the things I love about the Wacissa is that absolutely no one batted an eye when an old scarlet woman got out of a scarlet car and jumped into the water wearing all her clothes. And I wouldn't have cared in the least if anyone had.
What I was wearing was the least of my concerns. The fear of death by heatstroke (which is not funny) rated a lot higher.

And after all of that and coming home and eating my lunch and cleaning up a bit, I went to town to pick up a prescription and go to Joanne's fabrics which always triggers the hell out of my anxiety and I do not know why. I was determined to get a pattern and fabric to make Maggie a dress and after about four thousand hours, I finally managed to achieve that goal.
Also, while I was there studying the juvenile prints, my thighs suddenly appeared to burst into flames and I realized that I had forgotten to wear my Body Glide this morning on top of everything else. Why it took a couple of hours for my tender thighs to suddenly start to burn and hurt is a mystery to me but it did.

Here's what I picked in the garden tonight.

Not a very impressive harvest, eh? 
Well, that's okay. I'm going to figure out a menu for tonight which involves some of those vegetables. 

And here's Mick's butt. 

Look at those tail-feathers! Let's hear it for golden seal, the miracle and magical herb which all good witches should have in the medicine bags they keep tied around their waists made from the testicles of their enemies. 
Mix it with a little Neosporin which they allow anyone to buy at the CVS and you won't even need to chant an incantation. 
I promise. 

Love...Ms. Moon


  1. I had comments formed and then poof! I got to the end and got a vision of a bag made from #45's balls and lost my train of thought. 45 - I'm not ready to say he goddamn name. Jackass.

    1. Well, you don't have to say it. Like so many things, it is a personal choice. I will NOT say his last name after the word "President" though.

  2. Hey Mrs. Mary! For those ouchy thighs, if it's heavy cargo short material bugging them, but dresses/skirts don't have sufficient pockets fot the weight of things you carry, have you thought about a UTILITY KILT? They have belt loops. So with the belt you can put lots of stuff in them and they'll stay up. They have pockets and some even have loops for hammers. They make them of tough material. Plus you can get the breeze where you need it and not worry about rough material on your inner legs. Just google UTILITY KILT.

    1. I certainly never knew there was such a thing as a utility kilt! And now I do! You learn something every day.
      I just don't think I really need one. But I could be wrong. Let me ponder this.

  3. The executive order Trump signed actually means nothing. The language includes loopholes a mile wide. I could rant on here but I won’t. I’ll just say that the image of you sitting in the cool river restoring your soul is a balm to my soul. Good choice you made.

    1. I was just going to say the same, it's just a distraction.

    2. His idea of not separating families does include putting children in prison with their parents. Which is illegal but why would he care.

    3. His idea of not separating families does include putting children in prison with their parents. Which is illegal but why would he care.

    4. You three are all correct. That piece of bullshit he signed yesterday isn't going to do much at all but HELL, at least it'll give people a little more time to try and figure out what to do. I don't know. I don't begin to understand how anyone could be so evil.

  4. If ever there was an argument for reptile-people in human-suits, Sarah Huckabee is it.

    1. She and Ann Coulter. Google image her to find pictures showing her hands. Once you've seen them, you can never unsee them. They are ridiculously long and thin.

    2. And Kellyanne Conway. She's not human either, though I'll give you she might be some kind of reanimated ghoul.

  5. I feel like the order that the POSPOTUS signed was sort of meaningless, no? Watching it and him made me sick to my stomach. Basically, we're getting MILITARY CAMPS that will house CIVILIANS right here in the old U S of A. Scary shit. Will we one day remember all of this nightmare as the beginning of another? Sigh.

    But I adored your description of diving in the cool river in your clothes. and please tell me what this inner thigh glide shit is --

    1. I bet the children who survived the Japanese internment camps here and who are still alive are going through some hellish PTSD not to mention the survivors of the Nazi concentration camps.

  6. he did nothing but get a good photo op to counteract all the bad press. too many will think he did good. there is no provision for reuniting families and the not separating them is contingent on having facilities to house them. you really think he's going to make an effort in that regard? he reiterated his zero tolerance policy and just sending them back isn't good enough, he wants them all jailed for a misdemeanor. he is stealing babies, babies that will never be given back to their parents. this was just more of his lies.

    and re jumping in the river...I did a similar thing on one of my river trips with a group of friends after a long hike in side canyons to see pictographs, on the verge of heat stroke, only I stripped naked leaving a trail of clothes (had few clothes to chose from and didn't want to get them wet and was so hot I didn't give a fuck who saw me naked), before I dove in the cold river. same feeling, the big ahh and relief.

    1. I agree with all you said about Trump. Ellen, I'm terrified.

      We all need a river to jump in sometimes. Neither you nor I will ever forget the completely heavenly bliss of cooling off in cold water after too-hot exercise.

  7. It is 58 degrees here, first day of summer...and so it goes. What is body glide?

    1. I'm about to write about Body Glide.
      I sure could do with temperatures like that for a day or two.

  8. Yay Mick! I don't know what Body Glide is. Sunscreen?

    Trump was forced into doing this. He's not doing it because he feels any ounce of humanity. And I bet he hates putting pen to paper on this one, because that man is evil. As for Sarah Huckabee Sanders, I can only guess that she's one of these people who thinks the apocalypse will be a joyous occasion for people of faith (and I imagine she believes herself to be a person of faith), and it will draw closer with Trump in the White House. I can't imagine why ANY of those people, male or female, support him, but I think it all has to do with a combination of greed and religious delusion.

    I remember when Steve Schmidt was working for George W. Bush and I thought he was just the worst thing ever. He redeemed himself (somewhat) in my eyes when he took a stand on this issue.

  9. I really like your post good blog on site,Thanks for your sharing.



Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
