Big Views, Cacti and A Closed Play Area

Here’s another children’s play structure that has been locked down. I hate this damn virus, it’s stolen so much from all of us. Just don’t go playing around in the Barrel Cacti, children… The view of the foothills was taken from the upper deck walkway, looking west. The two-fifteen freeway is in front of those tightly-packed homes. That’s how we do it here, my home is very close to my neighbors on either side. Squish!

Politicizing My Memories

I’ll get right down to it here, a couple of days ago, I left a comment on an IG account I’ve followed for some time now. This person who won’t be named is a Star Trek actor that I’ve liked for many years. I’ve liked the acting, but never the occasional political statements or hints thereof.

I find them to be typical Hollywood hard-leftist bullshit.

On my last visit, I left a comment that I find the politics un-American in nature and left. This morning, I received a reply from the actor asking me to unfollow. I had already done so and mentioned this. I told this person that the acting is really good, but that the politics are un-American.

I then blocked the account. So there you have it, people. Politics suck ****. And this is why you’ve never seen any politically charged posts on this meager little blog. And you never will. This asswipe is one of too many Star Trek accounts on IG that have far too much political content.

Some people apparently believe that a perfectly wonderful science fiction program dating back to my formative years is a perfect platform to spew un-American beliefs and ideals that are for me in every way, Socialist and even a bit Communist at the core. Wake up, Americans.

Wake the hell up before your country is spelled AmeriKa. Hollywood was once so classy and respectable many decades ago. Today, Hollywood is nothing more than a hive and haven for those who completely disrespect this country in so many ways. Hey Mr. Star Trek, Please get out of this country.

At Downtown Summerlin Today Two

Here is round two from Summerlin this morning, I hope you enjoy these. While I was there, I sat down for a bit and called my dad back in Michigan, we had a nice conversation as always. In the last couple of days, I’ve been missing my family more and really needed to hear a familiar voice.

I worry about my dad so much as he is ninety-two years young.

I feel like this damned virus is stealing time that should be spent with him and my children and sister as I haven’t been able to make my usual two trips up there each summer. Of course, millions of people are in the same or similar situations, but that’s not much consolation is it.

Desert Skies and Cute Critters

Here are five photos from yesterday. The Ground Squirrels are very difficult to photograph because I can’t focus fast enough most of the time, hence several critter photos were dropped into file thirteen. I want to thank two of my followers for pointing me to where I could still access the Classic editor this morning. As you may have gathered, I do have a tendency toward strong reactions to certain things. I am not proud of this, in fact, it’s a bit embarrassing. That said, how long will it be before the classic editor is trashed by WP?
