Short blog this morning. Have to get the car to the garage. New tires and brakes.
Today’s title can be read 2 ways. One good, one bad. If you did not pick up on it, reread it slowly.
I won’t waste your time going over yesterday’s happenings. We are all aware. However, I would like to share some thoughts.
With the Impeachment Inquiry, the die is cast. The Rubicon has been crossed.
Trump’s UN presentation left much to be desired. He spoke of the U.S. as a national nation, not a global one. I do not buy it. Not a healthy way to go. Everyone needs friends!
Giuliani has lost it! Amazing! The man was a great U.S. Attorney and Mayor. His time has passed. Trump would be better off without him. He is only going to get Trump into more trouble.
Republican talk will be that with the Impeachment Inquiry, the Democrats got Trump. Not true. Trump got himself.
Trump’s lack of truth is one of the things that has led to the Impeachment Inquiry. He apparently never read: “Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.”
Howdy Doody went over well! Glad I wrote it! Some day, I will do the Mickey Mouse Club. Nothing wrong with remembering/being reminded of that which was enjoyed in days earlier.
Jean Thornton called from Birmingham. Loved the Howdy Doody bit! Though much younger than I, she falls in an age bracket that would.
Kokomo Man often comments re the blog. He brought to my attention that I forgot Clarabell the Clown. I did. Sorry. Clarabell never crossed my mind. Must be age.
Clarabell was one of the regulars on Howdy Doody. He was mute.
Over the years, 3 different persons played Clarabell. One was Bob Keeshan. He had his own show in later years as Captain Kangaroo. As Clarabell, he communicated through mime and honked his horn for “yes” or “no.”
Even the Peanut Gallery got into the act with Clarabell. Howdy Doody was not the only one who had a dedicated song. Clarabell, also. The kids sang it every show. It began “Who’s the funniest clown we know? / Clarabell / …..And since the day that he was born / He’s honked and honked his horn.”
Clarabell only spoke once in the 13 years the show was on. At the end of the last show, the camera zoomed to his face. With tears running down his cheeks, he said “Good bye.”
The entire staff cried with him.
Climate change! Climate change! Climate change!
A priority today. Even though some such as Trump do not believe it is for real.
Today’s New York Times ran a column by Brad Plumer: Major Climate Report Warns Of Severe Damage To The World’s Oceans. The report referred to was one the UN published the day before as part its climate change program.
The report stated the Earth’s oceans were under severe strain from climate change “threatening everything from the ability of people to harvest seafood to the well being of hundreds of millions of people living along the coasts.”
Key Westers have a special concern. We live on the ocean. In due course, many of our homes will be washed waw. Foodwise, fish a big thing. Most Key Westers eat fish every night of the week for dinner. Why not? Definitely fresh and tasty. Cheap also. Many catch their own.
The marine biologist Hans-Otto Portner claims, “The oceans are sending us so many warning signals that we need to get emissions under control.”
The word is definitely out. Are a sufficient number listening?
Enjoy your day!
