I must admit I woke with worries about the Cats of Salmon Brook Farm. I know they were packed and ready to move as the fires advanced, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed for them all. Ideally the fires will magically die out as they get closer to the farm but I fear this may not be the case.
Julia had set her clock for 6.30 and I wasn’t able to get back to sleep, which allowed me more time to listen to the news. It seems that this country has sunk so low that even American politicians feel able to take the moral high ground from us.
I Googled “honest politician” and did find this man, so all is not yet lost. I do love this quote:
“People of Kentucky, you deserve complete honesty, so here it is. I don’t care about you. Unless you are a donor, a lobbyist who can write a big fat check, the result that you get from voting for me is negligible.”
If the Americans don’t want him, can we have him for the UK. I’d happily vote for him. As for the rest of them, I’m seriously thinking of giving up voting as it only encourages them.
We sold one thing overnight on eBay and another during the day, the second day in a row this has happened. It’s not good. We also got two stupid offers from people. I was on my best behaviour when I declined them, even though they were just wasting my time.
I then went shopping, ate chips, fell asleep in the chair and woke up just in time to post.
I haven’t seen the Salmon Brooke Farm posts, so didn’t know about the threat to Lavinia and family. My geography of the US isn’t that great either.
However, I had heard about the fires and how disastrous they are proving to be. When will the world ever be okay, especially as politics descends into something like the workings of the Middles Ages.
We are mostly getting her news in the comments. She is in Oregon, left hand side, above California. If you Google “US State Game” there is a choice of interactive games to identify states. I spend too much time procrastinating…
Sounds an interesting way to procrastinate 😉
There is that! In other words, it is a worthwhile way to spend your time.
I see that slightly better weather is forecast for them so maybe all is not lost.
It would be nice to think so.
So many of us are watching Salmon Brook Farm
I, too, am worried about the cats at Salmon Brook Farm. And the people! And the whole West Coast of the United States. Truly, it looks like a scene out of hell. My heart is in my throat as I look at the terrifying pictures.
