Well, the election is long over, so you either don’t care, are overjoyed and waiting for America to be great again, or are like me and just now recovering from the shock of having the first orange president instead of the first woman president. Or maybe you’re like Kanye West, and the election results have turned you from a Clinton supporter to a BLM/Trump supporter, and you’re so confused you had to cancel your tour and have a mental collapse (granted, not much of a catalyst might be needed for that for him).
Regardless, Trump is what we’re stuck with for the next four years, unless he’s somehow impeached. I for one am going to try to give it a chance. I’m just going to have to be more selfish and not worry about others. After all, I’m straight, white and definitely too old to ever need a safe abortion, so I should be good. I do have a Latino son, but hell, he’s almost grown, so I guess he’ll just have to learn to fend for himself. Kids these days are so coddled, maybe it’ll be good for him. And hey, maybe my health insurance premium will go down a little when all the E Ky Trump voters lose their Obamacare.
Kudos to all you crazy kids out protesting and wearing safety pins-good on ya! It’s just too much for me. Kanye and I will just be over here having our respective breakdowns.
I haven’t posted much lately, partially because I have been busy this fall following and cheering on my son’s band. It has been worth it though. This weekend they were the state champs in their class for the year.
Their show, which you can watch below, was created by their director in honor of his late father.

Please take our Ky animal legislative survey! Please choose the answers that most apply. Thanks!
Had to share!
An old colleague and I were having breakfast this morning when he looked up at the news (I can’t remember which network …MSNBC, I think) and noticed a split screen of Donald Trump and Hillary Clint…

With election day right around the corner, it’s time to consider candidates’ stands on animal welfare issues! Here are survey results from a survey sent by KVFA to all candidates for Ky state legislature and federal congressional seats. Unfortunately we did not receive a high percentage of results back, but we appreciate the responses from those who did return them. Just click on the typeform link and click results. Also attached is a link to Ballotpedia’s website showing races by district. If you have any questions, please let us know. Thanks!
A few good stories have emerged from the awful shelter situation. This husky mix was hit by a car last week and surrendered by his owner to the shelter. A volunteer quickly got him to a vet, and other volunteers and donors got him emergency care. He is now headed to rescue and recuperating in a foster home.
Yesterday a photo of this senior lab, who had already been pulled from the shelter by rescue and was in temporary foster, was seen by the dog’s owner, who had been searching for him for awhile. The two are now reunited.
This shelter still has a way to go. However, hopefully this saga will have many more happy endings!
Problems remain at the Albany animal shelter. However, there are a few bits of good news emerging from the situation. Here are a few before/after pics of animals rescued from the “shelter.”
I’m voting for Hillary in November because:
Although some people don’t like her, she has proven herself to be capable of being President. She has served as Senator and Secretary of State, and she knows how to conduct herself in a Presidential manner.
I want my nieces to know that a woman can be President of the United States, just like I wanted my son to know that a person of color could be President.
She’s not Donald Trump. If Clinton is elected, I won’t live in constant worry that, depending on her mood, she, by having the nuclear codes, could bring about total global destruction within seconds.
I think those are pretty good reasons. Don’t you?
With everything going on in the country and world today and no really good ideas on solving the problems, I thought I’d try posting something a little fun instead. My niece and I got to see Guns n Roses (the real original version) recently. The concert was awesome. The main difference between this concert and the last concert of theirs that I saw in the early 90s, other than Axl’s slightly more rotund figure (although he does appear to be getting in shape on tour), was the lower energy level of the audience. I couldn’t believe some people around us sat throughout most of the concert. Granted we were in upper arena in the cheap seats, but still. Anyway, here’s a little quiz to let you know if you’re a true Guns n Roses fan:
1. You remember exactly where you were the first time you heard (and saw the video for) Welcome to the Jungle.
2. You perfected Axl’s serpentine dance for Sweet Child O Mine.
3. You own the tape, cd or download of every GnR album created, even The Spaghetti Incident and Chinese Democracy.
4. You cried when the original band broke up, and you wished for twenty-plus years that they would someday kiss and make up.
5. You smiled maniacally when you finally saw the band perform reunited!
If you agreed with all of the above statements, congratulations! You are a true Guns n Roses fan. For all those opposed, well…(extra credit for getting the reference in that last sentence) 🙂
