Thoughts on this day...

It wasn't until this afternoon, that I really had a moment to think.
I sat and watched the rain fall, while the leaves turned, and I thought about:
How we, as bloggers made a huge impact on this election.

I thought about how it rained today, but was sunny on 9/11.



Then I wondered if Mina needs more grapes.

And I tried to figure out why I love to catch her in her blue furry robe & mittens.
Maybe the varmint doesn't fall far from the tree?


I wrote a mental note to post the weird water tower pic to my blog.

Then I thought about the brave new world that lay before us.
And I thought about my varmints, and how they looked before they had hair.
And I wondered what the new world has in store for them.
Because I never in a million years could  have imagined this one.

Looking at Mina makes me long for being old when you can just be yourself and feel completely comfortable.
