Share Your World – 4/28/2020

One more cup of coffee should do it, right? Then I can get started on what needs to be done around here. Just one more cup of coffee. And sharing my world while I have that coffee.

Do guns protect people or kill people?  Or both? In the proper hands, guns protect people. Sometimes while they protect, they kill. In the wrong hands, they just kill people. I am not a big proponent of having guns, or at least not the big automatic, powerful guns. If you want to hunt, then do it like it was done before those automatic rifles were in production. If you feel the need for self-protection, a 22 does as well as anything bigger.  May I also suggest a baseball bat beside your bed, if you really feel that need?

Is it more important to be respected or liked? Considering the experience we’re having these days with our political “leader(s)”, I’d say respect matters most. There’s no chance I’ll like someone if I don’t respect them, but there’s a chance I might like them if I do respect them. As for myself – you like me or not, but I hope you’ll respect me.

Is having a big ego a negative or  positive trait?  (yeah I know.  Duh. But there ought to be one “gimme’ in the pile) I think it requires a certain amount of ego/self-confidence to succeed. However, just like sugar in your coffee, too much is awful.

Depending on your point of view, is death a new beginning?  I don’t know. I think death is the end of life as we know it – what happens next remains to be seen. I don’t think anyone knows for sure, because, I mean, no one ever comes back to tell us about it, do they? Okay, for those of you who believe in reincarnation, you take it from here.

It’s tough right now to count the blessings we have.   Being grateful for being confined to our homes and having reality skewed out of kilter for some is depressing.   So if there is something positive or uplifting or something you’re grateful for that you’d like to share (pictures, memes, images, thoughts) please!  Do share!  Thanks! I am grateful to be alive and know that I am “on restriction”. I am grateful to have neighbors that pitch in when needed. I am grateful to be able to communicate from a distance with family and friends. I am grateful for sunshine, grass that is greening, daffodils that are blooming, and the summer ahead.

Because despite the horrors of our world right now, I have enough. What more could one need?

But where the heck is my stimulus payment!?

  1. Carol — I agree with your sentiments: “Like me or not, but I hope you’ll respect me.”

    I don’t like guns, though most of the family on my mother’s side are avid hunters. I’m not a fan of big egos either….and I agree that respect is more important than being liked. I’m going to go for a walk now.

  3. Thanks Carol for the grin and for Sharing Your World. I do like you (but I respected you first). Your stimulus check? Same place as mine, apparently – in the ether somewhere. My neighbor (who was gainfully employed prior to C-19) got hers. She was a teacher and now has gone back to school to get her master’s degree. I’m not sure why the slow go for some and the quick quick for others – her last name is far behind mine in the alphabet.?? I don’t try to understand how the government wheels grind, all I end up with is a world class migraine and acid indigestion. Not worth it. I agree about the gun answer too…I have no idea why the heck anyone would need a military grade weapon to hunt with. How much flesh is left over after they shoot the animal? Forget about shooting birds with such, all you’d get is shot and a lot of feathers I bet. Lastly, yes it pays to remember one has enough, and enough is better than good in these times. Lovely thoughts you shared! Thanks!

    I’m not sure I could hunt, but if someone I love’s life was in imminent danger, I probably could take care of business. We have a bat beside the bed, but my fear would be the intruder would have to be too close to me in order to get hit. I do agree with you on the assault weapons and don’t think anyone outside the military needs those. I’d heard the checks were issued first to those who had refunds deposited electronically in the past. I dunno. It seems like there’s a lot of money floating around out there somewhere. I think it’s possible to respect things about someone even if you don’t like them. I can respect accomplishments of a person but may not respect them in other areas. I’m sure you know my worldview on life after death. Take care and be well! xoxox

      I live on social security, therefore don’t file taxes. I saw something this afternoon that said non-filers should start getting theirs this week. At least I can’t spend it yet.


      • leendadll says:

        Yeah… mine only stayed in my account for a few days because there was no harm in delaying payment on already past due bills!

        At least I didn’t have to see that idiot’s name on my deposit!!


I'd love to hear from you!
