Frogs and fountains

 First, let me vent. My MPP bragged that he voted without a mask. How can this happen at the polling station? It's not right. He was sent back to his car at a local store to get a mask. A Perth resident told me he wore a face shield in Ontario Parliament. 

"If Hillier entered the polling station he probably wore a face shield like he did when he had to vote in the legislature. He would never publicize that, none of the anti-maskers would admit to wearing a mask in some situations."

I found out how... and it ticks me off.


He'll retire with a great MPP's pension and continue to schill for the PPCs, a crazy right-wing party in Canada. They are fomenting anti-mask vitriol. No one is free, unless they live off-grid on 100 acres and don't drive, need healthcare, medication, or groceries. 




OK, back to our regular news. We've a sweet bird hanging about, freshening up in the fountain.





There is a time of year when one must wash one's windows. I'm nearing that sweet spot. The sun shines into the window in the afternoon. If it gets too cold, the cleaning fluid freezes on the window. Let's see how long I put this off!


I love the tree frogs. There were three on the corning of the railing.



 🐻SNUGGLE Bears – they are studying world geography! This globe was a Christmas gift for JB awhile back. I loves his maps.

Hillier is a vile, disgusting, horrible excuse for a human being.

I understand the PPC is making inroads in Alberta. To be expected, I suppose. :(

I love your tree frogs, Jennifer. They are difficult to spot among my profuse foliage but tend to favour the grape vines. Can't for the life of me understand the thinking of anti-vaccine folk. (sigh)

Love your frogs,

Sorry you have anti-maskers in Canada as well. We of course have loads of them. An acquaintance of mine here in Oklahoma. A vehement denier, I found out he died in the middle of August of Covid after two months in the hospital. Sad. Only 39 years old. His daughter got sick as well but survived as near as I can tell.

I love your tree frogs.
There was a woman at our polling station who wouldn't put a mask on or leave her contact info. She said she was exempt. They just let her go through. luckily there were few people there at the time.

I love your snuggle bears!

We have a tree frog living in our dormant air conditioner. I ordered a special spray that hooks on to the hose to do the outside of the windows. They are most disgusting.

Jenn - I could go on all day about masks and COVID and related topics, but I would much rather look at your tree frogs - plump, aren't they? And we could all take a lesson from your bears and learn a bit more about geography!

Gosh and I thought we had all the crazies here! I just wonder how people can be so ugly just out there throwing red meat to their slavering audience. It is so scary. Take care of yourselves!!! Good to read your happy news and that is what we all have to do -- keep looking on the bright side.

We see more than our share of bad mask behavior from our elected Congress folks and it makes me so angry. I'm sorry you're dealing with this too -- and glad we are not alone. Well, not glad, but at least we don't have the only jerks in politics here in the US!
