Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!
It had been a long time and I am now off of quarantine. I will be returning to work on Wednesday. My lung capacity will need to improve and being able to walk up and down the street will help me.
There is a lot of catching up to do and first thing this morning I took my car to have a nail removed. Sitting in the lobby was nifty. There were people there!
Something that disturbed me while I waited was the Television network MTV that was playing.
While we have copious technologies in our home, We do not have a television or cable. This will not change here at Willow Manor.
Anyway, I saw the host making fun of a obviously sick woman vomiting in the toilet. On the young ladies back, a scripture was tatooed. They zoomed in on the tatoo and read a scripture of peace, mocking her in front of who knows how many viewers.
Nope. Not my children.
Perhaps I am old and set in my ways. Out of touch. I am cool with that.
I am glad that the repair was under warranty and went on my way.
I am in process of refinancing my home and needed to get a legal documents. I was surprised that the parking in downtown Colorado Springs was free.
Downtown was remarkably empty.
I saw very few people in the usually busy streets.
I saw statues of our local population of handpicked and possibly cherry picked heroes, but few people.
Then I remembered… It is Martin Luther King Day. If you haven’t heard his most well known speech, I left a link here.
He was a nonviolent activist, an example for today’s day and age.
Now, I have read many of your blogs and seen many ranges of beliefs.
Here are mine.
Right or Left, I do not advocate for violence. I am totally cool with lawful assembly and peaceful protest. Martin Luther King was an outstanding example.
Well, that’s my take. We walked around the big city for a bit and purchased a new set of hair clippers. These will pay for themselves with 2 cuts. I expected quite a few more before they burn out.
It was pretty cold out, so besides the foray into the big city, we mostly stayed inside. I spent a lot of time chatting with folks on Linked In about job openings and opportunities. Hateful as it is, I have blocked a few folks for wasting my time or attempting to with Multi Level Marketing. Web searches of company reviews can be a great resource.
Dinner was hearty.
A baked potato, steamed broccoli, and baked chicken was a great finish to the day.
Well, that is all for now.
Thank you all for your support while we have been ill. It means a lot to me. You all are the best!
