Speaking My Mind: Mega speed goes the barn door project and have you...:   Yes, before the debate tomorrow night at 9P.M. our so-called president wants Good Guy Joe to be drug tested...For what, Metamucil, 81 mg. ...

Mega speed goes the barn door project and have you heard the latest... Mr. T wants Joe to be drug tested, huh, in this pseudo normalcy world by this pseudo normalcy gal!


 


Yes, before the debate tomorrow night at 9P.M. our so-called president wants Good Guy Joe to be drug tested...For what, Metamucil, 81 mg. baby aspirin, what??? What is the Orange Frothy-Haired Guy high, he really should be ON SOME TYPE OF MEDICATION for CRAZY IDEAS AND LIARS, i.e. Pres DJ?

Every word that comes out of his mouth is an insult to AMERICANS and all other human decent beings!!!

Moving on somewhat...

The barn door project as it stands as of this minute trim and finishing touches are going on...

The first two pics show the barn door hung and the proximity to our bedroom.



This pic below is showing that Hubby cut the switch plate to fit with the wider bathroom door opening and the new clam trim. Fortunately, the electric did not need to be moved, but now you can see why we went with the exterior barn door instead of a pocket door... yes the electric would have had to be moved for the pocket door! The pictures will be going back once the hammering stops on the walls for the trim, floor trim, and additional spackling still to be done at the floor level and above inside of the door. 


The barn door has been trimmed out here and is shown closed below. Hubby chose a magnet simply applied on top to keep that door closed for privacy when the bathroom is in use.
The interior grabber to close the door is also shown below.


Exterior closed door with handle installed.


So far one mirror reinstalled two others, the porthole one will go above and the seashell one will be placed below the rope one. The large ship's wheel mirror will be going into the living room where the chart is, and that chart will be going back up on the breakfront. See, a place for everything and everything in its place!

This morning's sunrise!

 

Last night was stormy and we even had an inch of rain! As shown below. We are expecting more rain storms today!


Moving on once more...

And now without any further ado moving on again to...

FOR PRESIDENT & VP NEXT!

(I am an Australian Shepherd, an interesting factoid I was supposed to be a miniature but...as you might know I AM NOT! But I am now over two and a half years old, so I am the baby HA! I was three months old when Mommy and Daddy adopted me.)

Slowly the project goes in this pseudo normalcy world told by this pseudo normalcy gal! (As well as a small political commentary.)

 


Now one might ask why barn doors in a shabby chic, cottage, coastal, country-styled home... bet you can't say that three times fast, chic, cottage, coastal, country, chic, cottage, coastal, country, chic, cottage, coastal, country! No one remembered where I was hiding the country???

Below shows where!!! Now you know.


Below, Hubby put in a header for the five additional inches needed.

Internal thicker depth trim.

Secure nailing board above the door opening, below.


Metal rail for door secured, below.

Stops put on.

Outer clam molding on either side of the door opening attached/added.


Moving on...

 Pink cotton candy-colored clouds this morning out our front windows, towards the north! 

With a pretty nice sunrise below that towards the east.





   

Moving on again...

   I do not know  Amy Coney Barrett, all I do know about her is she is the same age as our Number One Son and has the same first name as our niece but spelled differently, and she is of the same faith Catholic that my husband was born into, and we are both mothers. There are similarities stop; so I am told... she is a well educated, professor, attorney, and judge. Me, college drop out, went back three or four times and did get CEUs in many different things, but a Jackie of many trades, excelling in some! She as I said, young and a conservative, me old and a liberal. 

So here's the deal, she is nominated in a life position for the rest of her life, does she get that? Does she really want that? How could anyone at that age want to spend the entire rest of their life, till death do you part type of job???

To me never! (If I was young, i.e.)

Although, it is said to be ever-changing.

I would become bored.

I think that she could leave, quit if it interfered with her children and lifestyle.

What goes through my mind is the fact that she tips the judicial scales way too far to the right! That the judicial system would then our most important one would consistently lean heavily off to that one side, the right, decisions would not be fair nor just!!!

This coulda shoulda waited for the election to be over.

We must all agree we all need balance in life!

And this is NOT it!                              

I want to vote NO NOW!!!

Oh, wait, we don't get a vote!!!

Is that fair???

If we waited till the election then we would have that vote!!!



Moving on once more...

And now without any further ado moving on again to...

FOR PRESIDENT & VP NEXT!




VOTE FOR JOE & Kamala! VOTE FOR JOE & Kamala! VOTE FOR JOE & Kamala! VOTE FOR JOE & Kamala! VOTE FOR JOE & Kamala!

What a great team! THE WINNING TEAM!!!

Speaking My Mind: I do not agree with our governor's opening of Flor...:   Before we reached the 200K for us all stats below! https://www.statista.com/statistics/1103688/coronavirus-covid19-deaths-us-by-state/ Acc...

I do not agree with our governor's opening of Florida being in stage three but and this is a BIG BUT in this pseudo normalcy world by this pseudo normalcy gal!

 


Before we reached the 200K for us all stats below!
https://www.statista.com/statistics/1103688/coronavirus-covid19-deaths-us-by-state/

According to the CDC standards, our rate of cases has dropped below 5% and has been for several days, so it meets the criteria. But common sense should also be involved in decision making in my opinion! Unfortunately, our Governor DeSantis is sadly a clone to our so-called president, even I dare say a mini-me to his largess El Presidente!

Fortunately, though, most places of business are still using good judgment despite their cavalier attitude, i.e. frick and frack above... and are still wearing masks and social distancing and thoroughly washing hands in most places of business!!!

So intellect and common sense does still exist!

The thing that rubbed me the wrong way again with our so-called governor is that he felt that fraternity brothers partying as if it were 1968 without a PANDEMIC, routinely by wise colleges and universities taking action against such behavior by expelling students was a bit harsh, in fact too harsh, draconian was his word for it!!!

These youthful spreaders of disease were said by him as normal kids with the normal right to party!!! No matter what or who it may affect in the future!!! Maybe your children, Mr. Governator??? Perhaps your nanny or babysitter for all three of your preschoolers??? Or maybe even you when you shake their hand to come for a visit thanking you for being one of them!!! Hey, it's been nearly twenty years for you to have behaved that way, and then there wasn't a PANDEMIC!!!

And that is why I believe he could care less!!! Memory lapse, or perhaps selective memory issues, oh wait that happens only to old people like grandparents these wild children might just be going home to!!!

He does not have a child in school, in any of the grades, and neither does our so-called president, his son is either tutored or goes to a very small amount of students class, a private school.

So neither get it! I just hope, okay honestly now I do not care actually if they have to get it, to get it!!! Just so long as they do! Understand that is.

As of now, we can be wary and cautious and ask upfront whether or not if where our destination is if they too are being respectful of others by wearing a mask and social distancing and washing their hands over and over until the percentage of the cases is ZERO!!!

As we all should strive for today in Florida we have had another 2,795 cases with 107 new deaths!

We are averaging over 2,000 new cases a day and over 100 deaths too, he is definitely NOT putting faces to those numbers!!! For shame, for shame!!!

Moving on...

Another sub-par sunrise below.


Hubby is out at the store picking up more trim for the project, thus why no more progress today to show!


Moving on once more...

And now without any further ado moving on again to...

FOR PRESIDENT & VP NEXT!




VOTE FOR JOE & Kamala! VOTE FOR JOE & Kamala! VOTE FOR JOE & Kamala! VOTE FOR JOE & Kamala! VOTE FOR JOE & Kamala!
