Captain’s Log 6,035
Not much going on these days except work. I am making some plans for the trip to Portland in July and the road trip in August. I am really looking forward to both chances to get out of town. I am also grateful that the 4th of July is a 3-day weekend this year. The legal holiday is July 3rd. Thank goodness.
I did spend a lovely evening with my pals Jon and Lynn. They went to Europe and we met up for Italian food and photo time. They had an amazing trip! England, Scotland, France, and Norway. They are such sweet people. I always laugh like a total fool when I am with them. They bring it out in me. Wheezing. Tears rolling. Even the wait staff got into the swing of it. If they were annoyed with us, they certainly didn’t show it. We hung out in the restaurant for three hours and then found a geocache across the street. All three of us crawling around an electrical box using our iPhone flashlights. Great time.
Jon and Lynn enjoying Paris. What great smiles!
I know I am blessed to have such good people in my life. People like this don’t grow on trees. Solid friendships must be nurtured and developed – always giving people lots of space. We knew each other almost three years before we started calling each other “friend.” And now….well….we truly love and care for each other.
I was listening to Delilah on the radio during the ride home. She is a syndicated talk show host who spins tunes and gives advice from a satellite station in her house. She has 13 kids (10 adopted and 3 biological). I think she is amazing. She also writes songs. Her advice is spot on.
I admit I do listen to her when I am driving in the evening.
She was talking about loneliness last night. She basically said it’s a matter of choice. And she is right.
And speaking of lots of kids……the Duggars. I have not toe-dipped into these waters until now. I did watch some of the interview last night, and I am convinced that Michelle and Jim Bob are either dumber than a bag of hammers or they are really unskilled at trying to cover their tracks. The kid molested his sisters at least THREE TIMES! That is probably a low number. He only admitted to three times. They waited until the third reported assault to get that little son of a bitch out of their house. They counseled the girls. Yeah…right. Jim Bob actually said, “Well, it wasn’t like rape or anything.” Ummmm…..yeah….okay.
According to legal experts, both parents could have gone to jail for knowingly allowing a sexual predator to live in their house. But….the statute of limitations ran out on that one. So they are off the hook – – – free to continue making stupid statements about putting their girls at risk. Holy shit.
The mental capacity of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar.
Who calls themselves “Jim Bob” anyway? I think there was a kid on the Waltons with that name, but holy shit. Jim Bob?
