@68 LavaGirl: Hey, Lava--! Great to hear from you. Yeahhhhh---I am dealing with PTSD issues from active military service years of way back when that have snuck up and bit me hard on the ass like a tornado wreaking havoc on an otherwise clear blue sky. The flashbacks are ugly, and I'm seeking (hopefully local) counseling through the VA. I had another crying spell this morning.
Music, my blessed little VW, and cats calm, cheer, and keep me sane. I have been sight reading new music by contemporary Swiss composer, Ernest Bloch (b. 1956) for flute and piano, Suite Modale, and have lovingly returned to the Jazz Suite for Flute and Piano (c.1975) by Claude Bolling for Jean-Pierre Rampal. May music never die, and when it's time for my beloveds and me, we all go peacefully together. Earphones---good idea! I'm at least wearing ear plugs.

You're absolutely right---the political atmosphere is indeed, a mad house. Hopefully the world doesn't end up in a hellhole.
I'm ready for Emilio, Judd Nelson (as John Bender), Anthony Michael Hall, Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy in detention, and more moving images of Brad Pitt on a road trip and in a cheap motel room with Geena Davis while Susan Sarandon and Michael Madsen are sorting things out.
Poor Sydney and Heidi--I'll bet they had to get scrubbed and sanitized pretty heavily after having to wade through all that noxious shit in Cleveland!

@57 vennominon: Thank you for the spelling correction---Emilio Estevez it is, and duly noted. My typing fingers (I never took typing in high school--my bust) are truly showing their age. Luckily, my piano and flute playing fingers are still doing pretty well.
Griz, for her own health, sanity, and self-preservation purposes, is considering putting the purchase of a daily newspaper (But I LIVE for the funnies, puzzles, and the horoscopes!) to an end (at least until elections are over), due to the painfully high volume of current political warfare.
Flo------!! Where the fuck ARE you?

@55: Dang it!! I meant Emelio Estevez.....I need auto-secretary, if there is such a thing.

Yet another Breakfast Club quotation pops into my mind for some reason:
'We're all weird...some of us are better at hiding it, that's all.'
-----Emelio Extevez (Andrew Clarke)

@11 BiDanFan: My birthday is actually at the end of this month, but thanks so much for the nice birthday greetings in advance. So far this month, Griz has a lot to ROAR! about...and sort out (it's a long story). I guess it's good that I'm doing some roaring these days, twenty-five years later.
@25 sb53: Sorry if I was a little premature about my birthday announcement, but thank you for the kind greetings. too--it's actually at the end of this month. Like I mentioned to BiDanFan (@11), I am in dire need of roaring lately, so it's good for me to wine, dine, and eat cake by the end of this month. Hopefully I can shake off my latest PTSD and flashback weirdness soon and purge it for good. My beloved, trusty Love Beetle is steady as a rock and there for me whenever the world gets too overwhelming and he and I need to escape, even if only momentarily.
Jul 19 auntie grizelda commented on Dan Savage on Jill Stein: Just No..
@17: Please reread my comments. I support Hillary for reasons @23 cited, and agree with @18 as to why.

sb53 (@141, Straight Up): See my late response @143. Agreed: hee hee

Okay---Back to Dan the Man and Three Peters.

@141 sb53: Yep--the VW Love Bug of my life is indeed, air-cooled, and running like a champ. I still can't believe how mechanically patient he is with me at times. I am truly fortunate to have him. The nut who wrote a book pooh-poohing pre-water cooled VWs and (Ford or Chevy? I forget) Corvairs was obviously a totally jealous, misinformed idiot, and probably drove an Edsel.

Yes, lioness Griz is showing her leopard spots--particularly on her next birthday. ROAR!
