Donald and I Will Be Celebrating

I got my invitation to Donald Trump’s inauguration, of course, and was so looking forward to maybe meeting my hero. Alas, January 20 is my birthday and my family is insisting I stay home and eat cherry pie all day instead. I have to go with my family’s wishes, unfortunately. I won’t even be able to watch the Great Event on TV as my family has a day of Netflix planned. So, I will join the millions of other people who will not be watching. I am sorry to say this will hurt the new president more than anything as the key to his heart is Constant Maximum Adoration by the Masses. I will have to do my adoring in private. If there is time left over that day, I will head to my back yard to keep working on our bomb shelter. I am installing a special little door for the cats and dog.

I am a 65-year-old retired journalist, busy recovering from a lifelong career as an unretired journalist. This year marks a half century of my scratching out little fables about life. My interests include genealogy, humour and music. I live in a little blue shack in Canada and spend most of my time trying to stay out of trouble. I am not that good at it. I also spent years teaching journalism. Poor state of journalism today: My fault. I have a family I don't deserve, a dog that adores me, and two cars the junk yard refuses to accept. My prized possessions include my old guitar and a razor my Dad gave me when I was 14 and which I still use when I bother to shave. Oh, and my great-great-grandfather's blackthorn stick he brought from Ireland in the 1850s. I have only one opinion but it is a good one: People take too many showers.
