Hi since this is going to be the last post before the end of the year and it’s Dec.26th, it’s time to talk about stuff. Stuff is the mess on your living room floor right now. Stuff is all the gifts you got from everyone. Stuff is all those things in the closet, or garage, or attic. It’s the things you got your kids last year that they don’t use anymore, it’s the clothes your wife and daughter say are so much last years, it’s that treadmill you got that now sits unused in the garage. Are you starting to get the idea? What are you going to do stuff stays where you hid until you try to throw it out, or give it away, or sell it. Then you hear you do that it’s still good and all of a sudden the kids are playing with it and the new gifts become stuff. There is no easy solution to this, accumulating is a worldwide human condition. Sometimes I think if you want to stop war have a giant swap meet, but someone would get greedy and want all the stuff. Hey, I tried selling some of my stuff and nobody wanted it. I’m not going to leave to relatives so they can sell it. If I thought they really wanted it I would give it to them. I still have a whole lot of completed artwork and Model trains in O gauge, HO gauge, and N gauge. My family doesn’t want it, they’ve even called it garbage. My wife is worse than me she could be called a hoarder. You should see all the plastic bags she has and she still buys more to use as garbage bags. Ask her about it and she’ll tear you a new one. So what do we do, move stuff around to make room for the new stuff. When we all leave this planet to move to Mars we will leave behind a Planet full of stuff.

For those of you that actually read this, you might have noticed there was no post this past Sunday. The reason for that was my wife and I were standing in line a little over 6 hours for our third Covid shot, this was the most mismanaged affair I had ever participated in and that includes Black Friday. There were no seats and there were older people and kids all waiting in the same line. You had this relative of Hitler in control and she must have worked for Pfizer because they kept getting pushed to the head of the line. There are a million better ways to do this and we discussed them vigorously in line. I couldn’t have protested if I wanted too I was in so much pain I just wanted it over. This little lady should have a police escort next time. They are doing it again tomorrow till next Sunday. If she keeps doing what she’s doing I suspect some violence to erupt. This shot hurt and still does, none of the others have done that. To make matters worst I hear that the drug companies led by Pfizer are saying a 4th booster might be necessary. I think I might just take my chances on the next one or bring along some cash for bribes. This was the worse situation I have been in down here and I really don’t think my 75-year-old body can take much more. To make manners worse my girlfriend Antonia was home alone all day good thing she has a strong bladder. This is an old sore FATS and a relieved ANTONIA saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

This week has been one for the books. No snow in Denver snow in Hawaii and it looks like the Supreme court is going to get rid of Roe vs Wade. Now the latter one brings up a lot of problems. Along these lines I’m starting to remember something Richard Nixon used to say, there’s a Silent Majority out there. Well, I think he may be right. I think that like many other countries that have lost Democracy Americans remaining quiet while our Government tears our rights from us is a disease that will destroy us from within. At the moment the visible attack is against women and lesbians, gays and transsexuals, and their rights. This will have the support of a lot of people but, once they have done this they will begin to tell you how to dress, and how to behave and what you study, etc. By taking a women’s right and attacking lifestyles that most don’t truly understand it becomes easier to hide their true plan and that is the end of Democracy as we know it. We must first stop being quiet and second stop the politicizing of our supreme court and the rest of the judicial system. Once we accomplish that the rest will be easier. Remember for the loss of democracy to happen all people will have to be at fault not just Republicans or Christian right. Thai is FATS and ANTONIA saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.
