    Well I just got home from the March on Austin. What a day! It was amazing. It was fascinating that there were all ages, genders, orientation and ethnicity. Everyone just bonded together in a common cause. There were so many people it took us an hour and a half to just get out of the park and begin to march. People were on roofs of buildings waving signs, people giving out free hugs and a baptist church, not even on the parade route was giving out water!I am so glad I went because it was such an empowering moment. I got to hear Wendy Davis speak.....very inspiring. I'm also sunburned and exhausted. It was 78 degrees with no shade or breeze but so worth it. Before Clay ran for office I had no interest in politics but now I'm marching in parades. Thanks Clay!

    Thanks to Google, I have fixed the "Like" problem! You may now like up to 25 posts per day. Sadly, as if we have 25 posts per day...c'mon Clay, give us something to talk about...

    Fortunately some calmer heads prevailed and the bill will not be presented for a vote.

    Sleeping in the afternoon, in the Park Hyatt hotel, the door is open , no bugs, it's raining a gentle rain and no humidity in Colorado! That's wonderful but you know what makes it better? It's free! We are on our free trip to CO, that my daughter won. It feels so good and is really what I needed!

    Just popping in to say thank you for all the good thoughts. It helped a lot knowing people cared. He is no longer suffering or unable to live a normal life and that's what I am choosing to focus on. I am telling everyone that the saying "Life is short eat dessert first" should be heeded by all! So many things got put off for later, because life got in the way, and unfortunately for him there was no later!

    So, Friday I took the afternoon off to shop for my mom's birthday present, and cut the grass. I started some light cleaning and then Saturday got into the heavy stuff. Also went to the market and grocery store for all ingredients needed for what cindilu2 coined our "Thanks Birthday Going Away" party. My daughter arrived Saturday with a steam cleaner, and we proceeded to do the couches that the dogs have destroyed (what a chore!) and the carpets upstairs. Then I made a broccoli casserole, pumpkin pies and two batches of cupcakes. By the end of all of this, I wasn't even thinking straight, I was so tired, so no wonder the cupcakes didn't exactly turn out the way they should have. Sunday was more cleaning (yeah, it was dirty!), preparing veggies, icing cupcakes, and of course the turkey, which was stuffed and in in the oven by 6:10 a.m. There were 10 of us in all at two tables, and we ate on schedule at 1 p.m. Craziness! But we celebrated my mom's 78th, my ex's 50th, my daughter's impending trip to England, and of course, an early Canadian Thanksgiving! It was a great day, it all went off as planned, and I think everyone who was being honoured really enjoyed themselves. I went to bed for a nap yesterday about 4 p.m. and was in bed for the night by 9:30 p.m. I plan to lay low this week and eat left overs.

    LadyJ have a wonderful trip. I just can't take all of these mass murders. We mourn for a week and then we wait 2 weeks for the next thing to happen and ultimately nothing is ever done. This latest thing hurt my heart but I had to just check out. Just too painful. So I've turned back to music to help me get through ithe days. And Clay is a big part of that. He seems to be the go to person on a lot of different topics. He's a smart guy. Always thought Clay could have his own show that dealt with social and political issues. But I like that he is busy across so many types of media. Good for him. He's found his calling.

    You know apart from little insurance thing that can be solved even if I have to pay, since Sunday I had a leak in a new toilet and accidentally left the freezer door open and almost lost all the food. And to top that off I had to get a new battery in my car. So today I'd had enough and I consoled myself with a new tv. Did I need one.....no. Did I want one .....yes! So I bought a 65" smart 4K tv. I can't wait to see Clay on it. Do I feel better.....maybe!

    Exciting day here in Flint, MI with our visit from Pres. Obama!! We didn't attend any of the official functions, but did manage to get caught up in some of the traffic!! I don't care if the Pres. is Democrat or Republican...it's just so exciting to have one come and visit!! If only it wasn't because of the lead in the water..... I wish he could have seen Flint in it's heyday, we were really something, back before the auto industry moved out.

    Hey, I was deep into the depths - is it working yet? I can't see my "like" button at all at the moment. Getting dizzy.

    I looked into it, and not sure if I found anything or not, but I pushed some buttons around. Bottom line, go to your settings on the board, click on notifications, and scroll down to general. There's an option there that you be notified when someone likes what you post, so make sure it is checked. As to whether that will tell you who "liked it," I'm not sure. If some folks will "like" this post, I'll see what happens and what I learn from that. PS - I checked and no one who isn't logged in is able to "like" a post.

    Some thought he won, some thought he lost , some thought it was a tie, some noticed his hair, some misunderstood what was said, some ran stories with those misapprehensions, some tried to correct them. Just another day in Clayland!

    Clay just can't win. In the past, when he has indicated he will be doing something without giving details, the fandom starts doing its own analysis and builds its expectations beyond reason. When their expectations are not met, they have blamed Clay. I know this sounds really strange, but it happens all the time. Now that he has indicated change of some type, they are speculating he is leaving the business entirely, and are angry. The poor guy owes them nothing, but tries to give them a heads up and they pounce on him. It's really nuts out there....much more comfortable here. There is no reasoning at this point...some don't want to go to the gala now and others are upset because he will auction off a dinner at the Friday night event with VIP ticketholders -- except anyone can bid, so the anger is just that -- anger at Clay. Clay is my happy place...I will support whatever he wants to do to earn a living and support inclusion -- or anything else for that matter. Hope the change is to theater and acting because IMO he shines there and is respected. If not, am sure he will not disappoint.

    Well I woke up this am feeling sorry for myself for my concert that was to be tonight and called my concert buddy. When all was said and done we are in the balcony at St.Charles tomorrow. Got our hotel and we will be leaving in the morning. I keep telling myself that I am not crazy but I just had to see him. It has been since last year Gala and I do not know when it will be again so I just did it. Not the greastest seat but in the house!!!
