I’ve been cut off because I wasn’t liberal enough and I’ve been cut off because I wasn’t conservative enough by people who actually mattered to me, who I had felt close to. Some were friends and some were family. I still wonder, why did it have to come to that? I hear these different views all the time, many of them delivered harshly, and they often conflict with my own values. But if you’re someone who matters to me, I don’t believe I could ever cut you from my life, no matter how much we disagree.

I Don’t Know

I don’t know anymore. Is Whitmer right or is she wrong? As is often the case with me, I’m finding myself in agreement with both sides of the argument. I do know that cases in Lapeer just jumped from 18 to 82, and we have five Covid-related deaths, as of yesterday. I don’t know what we look like today.

Lapeer is not a highly populated county like Genesee, Oakland and Wayne, but we’re getting our share of this monster.

I wish services like Shipt and Instacart would get their shit together so we can count on them to bring our groceries to us. I wish the stores would allow toilet paper, soap and disinfection wipes, etc to be shipped to us via UPS or FedEx instead of requiring us to go to the store and purchase these items. I heard you can’t even get those items in curbside pickup. You have to enter the store for them.

Everyone is mishandling this thing, from the government to the stores. They’re all making moves that cause problems with other portions of the machine that would function just fine if they would let it.


Only I can screw up my Absent Voter Ballot Application by putting my signature and information in the places that were meant for the clerk. Now I have to request another one.


Imagine there are no political parties. It’s easy if you try. Then everyone would stop winning one for the team and care about doing what’s right. Imagine. America could truly be great again, if we did away with Republicans and Democrats and voted for the individual rather than the party. There would be less hate for your fellow countryman. We would be more willing to work together if loyalties weren’t holding us back. Imagine.
