It is the 18th and I last wrote on the 12th. Long time between blah-blah for me. Usually, I have plenty to say but this week, not so much. We had a nice Easter weekend with my son and his wife. And, with his help, we got some really hard stuff done. That was good. We pushed a seven-foot diameter water tank out from under the house where the widest spot was only 6′ 6″ . That was a chore.
We also drilled holes in rocks to support the soon-to-be-built marine ways but that was held up somewhat by the hammer-drill refusing to hammer after the first few holes. It still spun, just wouldn’t hammer. In other words, it did NOT get the final half of the holes drilled. But we’ll get it done.
It rained. That’s my main excuse. It rained.
Greenhouse performing well, tho. Solar-powered fan works a charm – when there is a solar presence. We’re getting happy with that addition to the empire.
Basically, it is all same ol’, same ol’….but slightly different ol’ stuff. Which is nice, really. For me. OK, the boat sinks, guests keep arriving, drills break, water stops flowing (but we got it half-back) and outside demands must be addressed but, honestly, that is just life and you keep on keeping on….right?
And I must admit that such a deep ambivalence is the only thing I am concerned about right now. That status-quo-ness. That same ol’……ho hum….blah, blah….
The provincial election is looming and there is about as much excitement in the air as at a funeral. Gawd almighty! It’s like, ‘After Trump, no act can follow.’ I mean; how do you generate political suspense when some plump, middle-aged, smiling cheerleader runs her cliche-ridden corruption-party against a dim, half-invisible pablum-peddling, boring-as-hell do-nothing NDP while, at the same time, Trump dangles the third world war in your face?
Trump has the Mother of all bombs. We have the mother of all bores.
Admittedly, boring is good in politics but it also portends the status quo. And the status quo is criminal-level corruption and mismanagement by the current gang of sleaze bags, the Liberals. So, in this case, boring is bad. NOT causing a fuss over their entrenched evil is likely gonna result in same ol’, same ol’. More of it.
For evil to be done, good people only have to get bored of it.
