in a trial that should never have happened. OK, first, let me say to Trayvon's family, especially his parents...."I AM sorry for your loss." People have told me how hard it is to lose a child. I never had children, didn't want children, don't really like children, but, that's another story. I have loss young family members and watched my parents and grandfathers suffer greatly with 'survivor's guilt'. But to repeat myself, this trial should not have happened. If Trayvon was white and Zimmerman black, it would've been a different story. BO should of never got involved with the 'my son' comment. I can't picture GB ever saying that. But, that is comparing apples to oranges, eh? Now, if the people stay calm and carry on, don't pull another 'Rodney King' episode, and Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson need to stop stirring the pot, then the nation can put this circus behind us and move on.
On a lighter note, woke up in the night to more rain. Was going to be a heathen today and mow, but the sun is not shining for any length of time, so the sponge, that use to be my yard, won't dry out. Fred is coming down this morning to do a little work. He's not been here for a while 'cause his son got married last fall and they bought a house in the same development which needed some work.
Dad's been checking out his new tractor, the seat, tires, tubes, distributor cap, plug wires, plugs, starter thingy, manifold, exhaust are all new. In his mind, this brings the price down to a more palatable figure. If that stuff hadn't been replaced, the tractor might of cost him less, but, then he would be buying the stuff. Broad as it is long in my book. But, what do I know. I'm just glad he got it.
Amish going by the house this morning, HA, dogs are sleeping and don't see them. Have the A/C on and they don't hear or smell them either. Peaceful for a change.
