Everything went to the side yesterday. My aching back determined my activities. Which amounted to little.
I left the house to go to Walgreen. I was out of certain heart pills. Did not want to screw around and go a day or two without. Stopped at Lisa’s on the way home for lunch and to visit with Robert and Ally. Had an afternoon scheduled with friends. Canceled it. Dinner planned with other friends. Called that off also.
I spent most of the day in bed trying to find a comfortable position. Watched college football off and on. Had a good deep sleep at one point.
Georgia impressed me. I forget the player’s name, but he was fantastic. Running, scoring, doing everything.
I noticed that the State has added an additional feature to the Boulevard. Pedestrian island stations. That is how they are called. Concrete islands in 3 or 4 spots in the center lane so people crossing have an island of protection.
A benefit? I am not sure. People have been getting across for years. I worry that the stations will invite accidents. Some turns will be difficult because of the concrete slabs.
There are no traffic lights to stop traffic so pedestrians can cross. The islands will mean people running across to a station in the middle and then waiting for an opening to hurry to cross the other half of the highway.
I am beginning to wonder whether it is old age that is causing me to be upset with new portions of the Boulevard. It could be I am reluctant to change.
IS keeps bothering me. We are told within a month London and the U.S. will suffer a terrorist attack. Obama seems to be vacillating. Maybe not. Perhaps merely a cover. Whatever, I say wait not for the terrorists to attack us on our home soil. Wait not for another 9/11 and close to 3,000 lives lost. Hit them now and hit them hard. Destroy them. Worry afterwards how a strike might appear to help Assad. Our primary concern should be for our people here in the USA.
Enjoy your Sunday!

Are we becoming conservative as we get older ? Most of us tend to.
“IS keeps bothering me. We are told within a month London and the U.S. will suffer a terrorist attack. Obama seems to be vacillating.”
I keep hearing on the news how hundred of US citizens have flown to the middle east to join IS. The fear is they will then fly back and do terrorist activities here.
My question is, if they have passports can’t our vaunted intelligence agencies at least track who flew to the middle east to join IS and then place them on the watch list for their return? Or did Snowden so cower and damage our spooks that they are now useless? It is a tough world out there and not the one with super heroes and happy endings we see on TV and the movies. At times, survival means playing mean, I hope we can still be mean when our own survival is on the line. We should never fight dirty just to fight, but we should be prepared to fight the monsters out there like IS that have no morals, no human dignity and hate us all to the person.
