While delivering papers to the post office I saw a frog on the wall. It was facing a light over a door. It would be looking at 7 on a clock. I would have loved have been there to see him get up there then see him get back down. He had to be 20 feet up. I started thinking of this frog just sitting on the wall for hours waiting for a meal to fly by.

Then I started thinking about it being in Downward Facing Frog pose.

The first time I went to the observation deck at the Sears Tower (and it will always be the Sears Tower to me), there was a spider on the outside of one of the glass windows. Made me wonder about how many generations of spider there were up there that had no idea of how far they were from the ground.

I had a similar thought about the house fly. It was born and died inside a house. It never knew about the world outside.

My dad was adopted and said he often felt like he wasn't part of the family. When he was dying his uncles came from Maryland and South Carolina to visit him. They told him he had always been part of the family. It meant a lot to my dad that they came to see him. It meant a lot to us. I don't know if my uncle's body will come back from SC. He was born and raised here in Georgia. This is where his family is. My sister said there won't be a funeral, at least for now. Maybe in the near future we can have one.

It’s sad your Dad felt that way for so long, but it really nice that he died KNOWING that he was loved. That’s a rare gift.

What has our country come to when people confuse the NORWEGIAN flag for the CONFEDERATE flag, causing a Michigan B&B to remove the flag?

I can understand the mistake. Take the Norwegian flag and rotate it 45 degrees, like would commonly be seen on an angled flag holder. The only thing missing is a couple small white stars. Now imagine you're driving by that on a highway. Also, what's more common to randomly run into in the US right now: blatant racism or people displaying Norwegian pride?

From what I read, the B&B owners understood this problem for what it was.

Oddly enough, I drive past a car with the flag on it every night. Not once did I think it was anything other than a Norwegian flag. I still think the whole thing is insane. Despite some being seen at the mask protests in Michigan, the Confederate flag is probably not common there. I would expect the Norwegian flag more than Confederate. Here in Georgia it should be and is the opposite. This story would make more sense here.

I'm glad folks are taking a stand against racism. I support them 100%. This is just ignorance, though. Since racism is also ignorance, it seems like fighting fire with fire.

After watching a number of episodes of the 90's X-men cartoon I fully believe there was some kind of Pan-Galactic Wolverine toss competition and every bad guy was trying to out do the previous.

Well, this is a time when many people are being overly cautious. Couple weeks ago I heard about this show from like the 70s or 80s or something where an episode was removed from streaming because of possible blackface, but it was really just two old women with mud faces for cleaning facials or whatever. Like, I get blackface is bad, but there has to be SOME limit to all of this.

Heard few days ago that a couple got banned from Walmart for wearing. I don't understand why people would do such a thing.
