Happy Columbus Day!

Good Morning!  I hope everyone is having a nice day today.  Its nice and cool out here but a thunderstorm is passing to the north and east of us.  I stepped out to see if I could see the moon, but all I saw was a reddish glow in the east from the rising sun and I heard thunder rumble north and saw lighting flash west.  I felt good though.  It was so quiet and still.  I could hear crickets singing softly but other than that I felt like the only being on earth at that time.  Well almost, I heard a car go by on the road and it ruined my moment! 

Today is Columbus Day!  Back then I guess people must of thought he was a real kook.  Sailing off into the nothingness and probably falling off the edge of the earth.  It was flat back then!  He discovered the Americas instead.  Thus began hundreds of years of whites pillaging and rampaging across Native lands, usurping the Indians and kicking them off their land...  Our ancestors were certainly greedy.  I guess back then Might made Right.  I guess alot of that still happens today..  Now I'm not a Columbus hater by any means!  I don't want anyone to think I'm some sort of fanatic, that was supposed to be humorous!  True, but humorous. 

I worked 2 hours overtime last night.  That will equal about $40 in my paycheck for extra!  Now if I do that again tonight or maybe go in Tuesday and work a few hours....  I don't like working overtime, but I have kids to provide for.  I have a sense of responsibility, unlike some people who squander all their money and don't think they have to pay child support. 

Really not to much more going on.  I hope everyone has a good day, especially those who have the day off!  I for one, have to work!  Bye for now!  Linda

Hi again Linda, I did have to go back and pull up your journal and reset my alerts because I didn't get one today. I am sorry that you are having to work overtime. Like I always say you do what you have to do when the occasion calls for it. Helen

Hi, my name is Cindy and I found your journal through aol's homepage. I love to sit out on a porch and watch a thunderstorm. It's very relaxing to me. I have added you to my alerts and if you don't mind I'd like to be one of your readers. Stop by and visit me sometime if you'd like.
