JUST EXACTLY WHAT IS VELVEETA?

Almost noon and I am just beginning today’s blog. My day began with an early morning visit to Dr. Norris. Fasting blood work. Then to Sandy’s Cafe for breakfast.

While at Sandy’s, a beautiful elderly woman dressed in white came in. I recognized her. We both would have morning coffee at a coffee house on Duval. The place changed hands 10 years ago and I stopped going. Did not like the service provided by the new owners.

Her name, Jane.

Jane rode a 3 wheel bike in those days. An excellent conversationalist.

There she was again this morning!

She was talking with a woman. Turned out to be her daughter. I interrupted their conversation and introduced myself to Jane. A friend from the past.

At first, she did not recognize me. As I talked about our mornings 10 plus years ago, she recalled me. She did not recognize me because she cannot see well any longer. I was just a blur to her.

Two friends now have difficulty seeing. Terri and Jane.

Jane of course no longer rides the bicycle.

It was nice seeing Jane again. Life goes on in one fashion or another. We survive.

Hemingway Days began yesterday. Run through sunday. Fun days the rest of the week!

A new BOB chapter: Just Exactly What Is Velveeta? BOB wrote about the heavy things in life.

BOB relied on Bob Smith for Velveeta comments. Bob thought Velveeta was “crap…..not cheese.” He described it as “a lobotomy in a box.”

Such is all I can report re BOB’s writing of Velveeta. The paragraph only 5 lines long. Why BOB even wrote about Velveeta, I have no idea.

I continue to write re Trump, Putin and the Russians. The Comment boxes fill with comments involving the items.

Some who respond fail to provide their names. They sign “Anonymous.”

Not a problem from my end.

One of the Anonymous persons wrote re Trump and Russia that Trump forgot certain items of history. He said: Trump forgot “Russia supplied Vietnam with arms and ammunition, including the missile that shot down McCain and the weapons that killed 55,000 Americans, but then he avoided any involvement there. And there was the Korean War where Russia armed North Korea and Russian pilots shot down American planes. And Cuba, Russia has always backed those whom we oppose. Can a leopard change its spots overnight? Trump seems to think so.”

History speaks for itself. Many lessons to be learned from it. Assuming of course a person reads history.

When I hear of a blimp, my mind automatically goes back to the Hindenburg which went down in blazing flames in the late 1930’s.

In spite of the Hindenburg disaster, blimps continued to be used by some nations. The U.S. Navy used them during World War II.

German submarines were constantly roaming off the Keys. Today’s Key West Citizen in its Keys History section makes mention of a German submarine and U.S. blimp.

It was this day in 1943, U.S. Navy blimp K-74 was shot down by German submarine U-134 50 miles southeast of Marathon. Navy ships from Key West were able to rescue all but one of the blimp’s crew.

Enjoy your day!

  1. Regarding this portion of your blog….One of the Anonymous persons wrote re Trump and Russia that Trump forgot certain items of history. He said: Trump forgot “Russia supplied Vietnam with arms and ammunition, including the missile that shot down McCain and the weapons that killed 55,000 Americans, but then he avoided any involvement there. And there was the Korean War where Russia armed North Korea and Russian pilots shot down American planes. And Cuba, Russia has always backed those whom we oppose. Can a leopard change its spots overnight? Trump seems to think so.”

    I heard that exact quote from a newswoman on an NPR show. Either correspondents are responding to you or someone named Anonymous is stealing quotes to echo your blog posts.

  2. Does it really make any difference about that response/quote ? Everyone knows that. I think everyone also knows to take what Russia says with a grain of salt. It doesn’t mean that there should’t be a dialogue between our countries. Every President in recent history has talked to Russia. Remember Obama’s open mic when he told Putin he could be more flexible after the election.

    • Listen Neville, it DOES make a difference and especially HOW a president talks to Russia. That was the whole meaning of that quote – a subtle nuance apparently lost on YOU!

  3. I just read where Kim Jong-un would now also like to correct his statement. He says he meant to say he “wouldn’t” denuclearize.

  4. I think some are getting lost in the mis-direction as Comrade Trump wants.

    It is clear that Putin replaced the shaft Kim Jong Un shoved up Trumps rectum with his hand… all the way up to his mouth so Comrade Trump will say just what Putin wants.

    Putin surely has Comrade Trump’s number.

    • Well that seemed to be a real possibility (at least according to the FOX news crowd) with the North Korea threat and this is at least just as important, so who knows. At least those now concerned are actually dealing with facts as they happened (responsible reporting) without wild accusations, like we’re all going to die!

  5. Trumps brand of nationalism, the same found in 1930 Germany, is troubling. Trump, in his ignorance and narcissism is dividing this nation and holding the door open to the Putin agenda to influence world politics and compromise long standing alliances.

  6. So many Russian supporters in the USA now! Wonder if they enjoy the road they are being led down by the man-baby in the WH? What can they say? They love trump so they clearly support Russian cyber-terrorism too. They can’t deny it and continue to slurp up every word trump misspells!
