Family reunion. And kittens, of course.

    As usual, you have a pack of cute kitties. I wish I could take them all. Unfortunately I can not. I'm down to two now but don't get to spend the time with them that I should.

    It is admirable that you can have family reunions and the talk never get around to politics.

  • Thanks Palindrome. I will pass your support along since she does not read my blog. WHAT?

    I am not sure why politics did not come up fair share. I know my sister and her husband are sharply opposite in opinion so maybe there are others in the other families in the same situation so they all purposely steered clear.

    I have always been proud that my direct family has always been family first and no issues ever came up with our parents estate or anything else. Maybe our parents had something to do with that?

    Well, Steve, there are a couple other recently current threads for the political stuff. I just don't want to pollute an apolitical family and pet oriented thread with that poison.

    I will mention, however, that Nashville traffic can hold it's own with the DC area. I go thru Nashville fairly often, different times of the day/night. Always decisions to be made. Do you go 80-90 in a 55 or 70 zone, or do you risk being run over? And when you've decided you don't want to be run over, how much room do you leave between you and the person in front of you? Remember driver's ed class where they said pick a point the car in front of you passes then count 1,1 thousand...til you get to was it 6 seconds? What a joke. If you leave a car length plus 6 inches, some bad person from the right (lane) will cut in. If you leave a car length minus 6 inches, some from the right will engage in a game of chicken. My usual decision is that it is safer to worry about the car slightly less than a car length in front of me than worry about an idiot that needs new glasses misjudging my right from fender from his broken side view mirror.

  • It IS tough to decide what to do about aggressive idiots. My nature is to discourage them from squeezing in but I have gradually been backing off because while I THINK My reactions are as good as ever, I am getting older and common sense says my reactions are fading.

    I hope I relinquish my license before I drive 40 mph on interstate!
