All three of these trees are bent and formed as if facing a common environmental element — probably the wind since they’re located along coast of North Carolina. I call them the “tree amigos,” yes a bad play on words. Who knows how many decades these three have stood together in this spot. We humans are lucky in we can change our location to better suit our preferences or enhance our short existence here on this earth. Even so, there are those among us rooted to a location or even a belief system by history and ancestry just as strongly as these trees. But then, that too is a freedom, freedom of choice.
OK, I’m so tired of all the political B.S. that’s taking place in Washington, D.C. concerning the debt ceiling/deficit I’ve taken to avoiding reading or listening to news about it in order to keep my frustration level manageable. If in my power I’d fire every one of them, without benefits or any way to make money off their previous positions. During this time of hardship how dare they dangle us and the world over the coals of further uncertainty for political gain. My opinion, mind you — rant over.
In June I mentioned an upcoming cell phone upgrade and trying to decide between an iPhone or one of the many Android phone from Verizon Wireless. Even as much as the technical aspect attracted me to the Androids — decision made, iPhone.
I hope everyone has a good weekend. We’re getting a short break here from the oppressive heat and humidity for a few days. It was so nice walking the dogs this morning and not feeling like I was in a steam sauna.
