From the Desk of John Rourke – May 1st, 2017

Garden is almost completely planted. We had torrential downpours last week which helped but was concerned too much water would create issues. Supposed to get rain today then clear up. Trying several types of tomato’s and pepper’s this year along with cucumbers, yellow squash, and zucchini. Wifey planted some herbs as well. Eggplants so far look like they need to be put out of their misery.

My 18-year-old isn’t going to graduate high school on time. What a struggle it has been dealing with him and school. He has zero motivation to get his work done and will have to either attend summer school or go back in the Fall. I try not to stress out about it but it is difficult. I try to remind myself he is a good kid and has a very kind heart.

What happened to the eight-year old that looked at me like his best buddy and thought I was the smartest man in the world?

Get a load of this: The “OK” hand sign is now considered “racist” by some on the Liberal Left. Insanity.

In an AR-related Facebook group I am a member of a guy rearranged the magazine selection at his local grocery store. Diversity is good, right?

GOOD NEWS: Joe Biden has come out and said “I’m not running” for President in 2020. Well, maybe that’s bad news. It would have been entertaining.

Anyone else feeling a bit overwhelmed with the amount of “stuff” going on? North Korea, Russia, China, Mexico, Antifa, Liberals, Neo-Cons, deficits, debt, surveillance, politics in general – then add in regular life stuff.
