Random thoughts for May 22!


Sometimes, you get what you wish for!

Damaged boat dockThe weather can get rather persnickety and the spring of 2017 was right in line there on the strangeness scale! Where I live, in southwest Missouri, some are calling the area the new tornado alley! Over the past three months, I’ve been hit with hail twice along with close encounters with two twisters. We’ve also had ourselves a 100 year flood! I can’t seem to remember anything like that in the twenty years , or so, that I’ve lived there! I mean, I did wish for a cool and wet spring to help us break out of a mini drought, but this year was really over the top!

Kim’s missiles!

48c1a-launch1Kim Jon-il, or whatever the leader of North Korea’s name is, seems completely obsessed with his self destruction. Call it paranoia, on his part, or perhaps the man is just a tad insane. Whatever the reason, his decision to mount nukes on top of ICBM’s has got to be one of the shortest routes to self annihilation. (So much so, that rumors have it that his top General’s are all filing for extended vacations)!

At a time when the US is making great strides politically with parts of the Middle East, his small starving nation is finding itself in poor company; namely Russia, Iran and China. The end result of which doesn’t bode well, as those three will likely not come to his aid should the shooting begin.

In my limited opinion, by far the best solution would be a coup followed by a process of reunification wit the south. It’s way past time for the rank and file North Korean to begin healing their shattered economy, get some food in their stomachs and to start to catch up with their brothers to the south!

    I live in Vermont now although I once lived in north, central Arkansas. I too was hoping for some precipitation so we could begin to recover from a drought. We didn’t get much snow this past winter but spring seems to be gently increasing the water table here. We have had some intense wind storms lately which has made it somewhat interesting.
