Home & Garden
I am so angry and upset over the present administrations huge failures that I am not even going to discuss that. It keeps me too angry. Instead, I am going to discuss wanton waste as it is shown on tv.
HGTV is one of my favorite channels to watch because ted and I flipped houses for a time. It was fun, Ted did beautiful work and our houses sold very well. Several the first time they were shown.
The show I am talking about rips up beautiful things to install what is currently popular. The guy can't keep his hands off his wife who wants to turn everything into a cookie cutter house. Nothing is sacred unless it is so ardhaic that she thinks it is adorable like old fashioned cabinets. I watched them tear out beautiful landscaping, cut up pristine white carpet and rip the mantel off of the fire place before turning it off in disgust. They seem to specialize in re doing little pokey houses and investing about one hundred thousand dollars in them. They are still two bedroom houses. You can put lipstick on a pig but it is still a pig.
Then there are the reality shows which we all know are junk and posed, rehearsed and contrived. Ted is a fan of the car shows where they take some old wreck and revive it after spending at least fifty thousand dollars on it. I may be a philistine but I prefer new cars.
So what does one do? I am currently re-reading Ann Tyler's books and plowing through The Age of Reason. I walk Jose twice a day and our morning walks are peaceful and calm. It is nice to be out early in the morning. We go about seven and it is beautiful at that time of day. Most of the big dogs have been walked by then because he is apt to challenge pit bulls and german shephards. He evidently thinks he is macho big stuff!!
