What Is Gallimaufry?

By definition, “gallimaufry” represents a hodge-podge, a jumble or medley of things. Which is just how my brain feels sometimes, especially at night if I have trouble sleeping. So I’m using this blog as a way to record some of those thoughts. You might agree. You might not. Have it your way.

Will You Die?

You have a good chance of contracting COVID if you don’t wear a mask appropriately, and if you don’t keep your distance. This reminds me of the scary times when we knew AIDs was being transmitted, and people didn’t test before they slept and had sex with someone else – male or female. If you […]

Follow the Money

There is only one reason The Great Orange Trump won’t concede this election and it requires us to follow the money. If people think he has a chance of winning – no matter how ridiculous a notion that is – they will continue sending him, and his campaign, money. Fools. Conned AGAIN! We all know […]

Trumpers – You Do NOT Own the American Flag

Today is Election Day in the United States and our democracy is at stake. I would like to remind all Trump voters that they DO NOT OWN the American flag. For some reason, the Trump voters in my neighborhood think they do. I am very much an American. I am a former registered Republican – […]

Not Paying Attention

I’ve just returned from walking my dog, only to find this sign posted in a neighbor’s yard. Immediately, I passed judgement on his lack of intelligence. (And yes, I know him well enough to know that he does lack the ability to assess properly.) Those who supported Donald J. Trump in 2016 were simply too […]

Dust to Dust

Did you ever notice that, during certain times of the day (depending on the season) the sun lands on your TV or tabletop and all you see is DUST? Love this sign:

Pandemic Laundry

I can think of one VERY POSITIVE thing that results from a pandemic. For many weeks now, I have had to do less laundry – only three loads each week instead of four. With no social time, that means no dress up time. With no restaurant eating, that means no spilling down the front of […]

A Mother’s Day Like No Other

I have to wonder how many mothers will be exposed to the virus because of someone else’s stupid attempt to make them feel loved and cherished. … or because of their own inability to understand that it’s their own right to say NO even as someone else tries to expose them, whether or not that […]
