The NRA convention was a great success and people who were interviewed said they would like to come back to Indianapolis again. There were no gun incidents which proves that having a convention center full of guns does not encourage violence.
Sarah Palin gave a rousing speech – of which I saw a brief part – and said that they were not going to take her guns away. She did not say who ‘they’ were but I imagine it might be someone who lives in the White House and is known to sneak around at night and steal guns while law abiding citizens sleep.
Meanwhile – any doubts about Hillary Clinton running for President can be put to rest. On the weekend she spoke about how her faith sustains her and guides her life. This is a sure fire indicator – and is a requirement for anyone who runs for any office in America.
Deckman and Son removed our old deck on Friday and they were supposed to start building the new one today - but it is raining. This is good because our garden is as dry as a bird’s bum and we really need lots of rain to bring our plants properly to life.
Except for the Yews. I am sure the yews are dying. I wax and wane a bit about this but had a really close look and there are more brown and crispy bits than I have seen before. I smothered them in fertilizer on the weekend but think it is probably too late.
The rain does not stop the squirrels and when they are out in the rain they put their tails over their heads and use them like umbrellas.
