I haven't been on-line much, obviously. Haven't even listened to the news much - my boss will call me when we reopen. I've been doing all the stuff that never gets done when I'm working. If it hasn't required me to spend more money it's been patched, sanded, painted, cleaned, cut, weeded - I need a vacation from my enforced "vacation".
And now I'm off to Michigan on a trip that was paid for weeks ago and they took away my government computer so that I couldn't work even if I wanted to donate my time. So even if the government reopens I can't telework from there, which was my original plan. Not allowed to on a personal computer even if I had the proper programs to do so. Instead I'll be at Greenfield Village, the Ford Museum, the Detroit Zoo, and the Detroit Institute of Arts Museum. If we get paid for this time - thank you Momjeans but I still will die rather vote for you. Or any person from the level of dogcatcher on up who has a "D" by their name. Silence infers consent - they consented to the ugliness of Reid, et al, by their silence, thinking if they just laid low nobody would notice them. Or they agreed with being ugly.
An ugliness has developed at the kid's house - a neighbor across the canal came out and pointed a rifle at their house to threaten them. St. Clair Shores PD said that there was nothing illegal about it. I beg to differ - it's called brandishing and it's a misdemeanor and while I realize that the officers probably needed to see it to make a charge they should have at least gone and informed the neighbor of the law and of the fact that people might view having a gun pointed at them (and wife and baby) as a threat and respond accordingly. Had my son-in-law not been a person of self-restraint bad things could have happened.
