Presidents and Vacations
"But...but...Barack Obama's golfing and the world's in a mess!"
The critics of vacationing presidents only notice these things when the guy from the other political party is the president, and HE's always doing it wrong!
BTW, presidents are NEVER on vacation because they bring the duties and responsibilities of the presidency with them wherever they go.
But the dear right wingers never miss an opportunity to bash this president because it's what keeps their fires lit.

There's an old saying...
"No good deed goes unpunished."
Nine days ago, I brought my elderly neighbor, who has no family nearby, to the hospital. She was having trouble breathing and was in distress [she has emphysema}. I was in the emergency room until 4 AM the next morning. The hospital admitted her, and I went home. The next afternoon, I visited her and was told she would be hospitalized for a few more days until they stabilized her breathing. (She's home and doing well now.)
Two days after taking my neighbor to the hospital, I came down with the flu. Yes, the one that choked up emergency rooms and scared the beejeebus out of everyone. The worst place to be during flu season is a hospital. I obviously picked up the virus there, since no one I've been in contact with over the past month has had the flu.
I've been blogging from a sick bed since last Wednesday, and I'm still weak and cotton-headed. The doctor told me this thing hangs on for 7 to 10 days.
Anyway, that's why blogging has been light. And why I haven't got anything new to post today. I'm tired and damn sick of being sick. I'd much rather be out and and about, doing my regular routine. But this malady has humbled me and the idea of my being a healthy and hardy individual.
Stay well. And keep washing your hands.
