I've posted various places re: my feelings of everything going on so I won't repeat here but I am so glad to have all my friends here. Can't believe we've had another birthday but so glad we're here together. Hope Shiprek will be back soon. Miss him :(
WE actually had bad storms here d/t Cristobal. Almost 70 MPH winds and lots of rain but was a quick hitter and then it was gone. Still dealing with mom's death and how it was during the beginning of the Covid shutdown. Nothing was right during that time. No calling hours, just family and only up to 10 people.... No cemetery service and we didn't even get to go to the gravesite. They had a tent and chairs right by the side of the road. I feel like part of my grieving process was removed from me. But I couldn't do anything about it. And I know mom is in a better place and I don't have to worry about her anymore.
Anyway, just wanted to check in and say I believe ALL LIVES MATTER :)
I also don't have a problem with a Confederate flag. It's part of our history and you can try to change certain things but history is forever . I also believe NASCAR had to bow down in order to survive but it hasn't been right for a long time. I still love watching the races but I won't spend any money anymore or suveniers. I may go to Michigan for a race but no more buying NASCAR stuff. Have to wait and see how things go.
I posted under MK's post that Tom has a connection to Robert E. Lee. Tom's mom'
s maiden name was Lee and his family on his mother's side is related to him. His family was from Virginia so even a "Northerner" has connections to the South. LOL !!
There's even a small Confederate flag in our barn. LOL !!!
