Musing of one wondering if we ever had a worse political situation.

Last Tuesday I turned 99 and I don't feel a day older than 99 but I have lots to reminisce about and I frequently do.  I have experienced two world wars, a number of so called incidents, and innumerable minor upsets. My wife Mary Kay and I had a beautiful relationship and marriage that lasted over 73 1/2 years until I lost her in 2012.  There were 5 in my immediate family. All three women are gone leaving just my son and me as survivors. But all in all it is a good life.

Musing of one watching a group of senior citizens trying to figure out what they could do next.

As I approach my 99th birthday in September, I realized I am blessed. I guess I am also blessed with good genes because my mother lived to almost 105 and then she went of her own accord. She was living in a house in Albuquerque when by brother and his wife came from El Paso and took her down to live with them in a place called Monte Vista were they had acquired a 3 bedroom 2 bath apartment, but my brother's wife did not care for it and they moved back to their old home in El Paso.  And since my mother could not afford the apartment she was relegated to a 2 person room where she was extremely unhappy and literally starved herself. I remember we went to visit her and she refused to eat anything. My sister Phyllis was with her when she passed away one month short of 105.

Musing of one watching the political antics of polital orators.

I think members of congress should be limited to two terms for Senators and six for Representatives; after all why should they be any different from the President.

Musing of one watching a man trying to figure out what to do with his vote for the Presidential election since he did not like any of the candidates.

I know this is probably repetitious, but I still have to face the probable choices that will be available in the Presidential election. As I have said, I have voted in 18 Presidential elections and I cannot recall a single one where there is a such a group of poor candidates to choose from. That's the way it goes.

Musing of one contemplating the probable choices we have for the presidential election.

By my calculations I have voted in 18 Presidential elections and I cannot recall one in which the field is so unappealing. It's too bad that Ben Carson and Marco Rubio are not running.  At least they would provide us a reasonable choice.

Gary Johnson is running as a Libertarian, and as far as I know he has a good clean record, so I will seriously consider him.

Musing of one remembering when he and his family lived on the edge of the infamous Bermuda Triangle and weren't even aware of it.

Some years ago, Donald Trump's wife Ivana referred to him as "The Donald".  At that time, he was not nearly as controversial as he is now, and it would be nice to see him go back to that situation.  I think he himself would be happier if he did.
