One of Doug's and my Sunday traditions was the newspapers....the local Pantagraph, and the Chicago Tribune.

Depending on what else needed to be done, we often didn't finish the papers til midweek....umm, that would be Doug, who read the comics and every word of every editorial, also most every word in the news, sports and business sections.

Me, not so much....the comics and sports sections go directly to the trash, and my favorite section in the Trib is LifeStyle.

Reading Miss Manners today, she is writing about denouncing political correctness, something I didn't realize was a social issue..."adding denouncing political correctness to her list of conversational prefaces from which no good ever follows. Others include, "Do you want me to be perfectly honest with you?", and "Would you like some constructive criticism?" When people announce they plan to abandon the rules of civilized discourse, they should be taken seriously."

Run, she says.

Political correctness is the conviction held by liberals that a turd has a clean end by which it could be picked up.

Nice. Thanks for so quickly and succinctly proving the point in Maggie's previous post.

We can debate the perceived value of political correctness forever, but I totally agree with the definition, minus the bit about liberals.

P.s. I'm not aerodynamically correct either....

Running errands this morning in my daily driver Interstate...I am getting very good about organizing errands so as to minimize trips out.

Picked up some things to stock the frig, and found this bag at Walmart...under $15, and they have a whole line of them, in different sizes.

I needed a larger bag for toiletries, etc., as I use public showers when traveling whenever possible...the current one is small enough that it never really dries, and always has that musty smell to it.

This one will work perfectly...has pockets, which are very important to organized living, is lined with nylon, and can be washed if necessary...and is pretty, no? I like.

Went into the Music Shoppe in Normal to have the string on my baritone ukulele replaced, which as I had the string they did at no cost....wasn't that nice!

I'm looking forward to playing it again, as it is a very relaxing and soothing activity.

I'm just about ready to leave, and Mimi is on her way north...

Yes, and you're in it!

You haven't confirmed on the Shirley Valentine thread, but you are going to be there, correct?

Waiting for labs to be drawn this morning, I picked up a 7 year old copy of O Magaizne and saw an article that seemed meant for me....and I could have used it in 09, as well.

By Martha Beck, she wrote about there being two ways of going thru life...

gathering everything in sight, just in case you need it, scarcity based thinking, or

trusting that you'll find exactly what you need, just in time, abundance based thinking


While there could be unwanted extremes on either end, it's an excellent concept to think about and pay attention to, I thought.

Periods of deprivation...of money, resources, people, food, love, etc.....wire our brains to always be preparing for the next famine, and can cloud our judgment for what to hold onto...and what to let go.

She recommends tamping down our inborn fight-or-flight responses, not focusing on the scarcity of anything, but instead on observations of abundance in our lives.

Just-in-case vs Just-in-time thinking. I like.


Hot as blue blazes today, and for the next few days, with high humidity.

Mimi and I will likely do a fair amount of siting in shade or the AC during our visit over the next few days, but that is okay.


Maggie

Thanks, Tommie.

My sister in law had a lumpectomy, only, yesterday...no indication the cancer had spread any further. Yeayy!

Heading out to Comlara in a bit, and Mimi will be arriving this afternoon.

Going to have a hot couple of days, but we will be on the lake and there's always AC.

I'm looking forward to this trip...seeing old friends, more recent acquaintances, and meeting some new folks.


Maggie

Maggie, I am relieved for your SIL, as I am sure she and her family are. Prayers help!

I hope the weather lightens up during your visit with Mimi. Hopefully the lake will cool things down for you. Enjoy your travels, stay safe. Evelyn.
