On most Tuesday nights you can find my pal Peg and I sipping coffee at our local Tim Horton's. We are such regulars that the guys that work there will sit down with us on their breaks and discuss the news of the day.
Now, Peg and I have been friends for nigh on 25 years. We are both Christians but politically we do not always see eye to eye. I am super conservative and very opinionated. She being raised in the south tends to agree with some of the Democratic ways and is just as opinionated. The difference between us is that I DO NOT change my views. Once I form an opinion that's it!!! Peg on the other hand is more open to change...if you can state your case...she listens. We never argue. Oh, we have plenty of discussions...yet we can say anything and for some reason we are never offended or angry.
For whatever reason I have always gotten into politics and want to be informed. But, lately I have taken to turning off the news because the media is so one sided and they repeat things over and over and over. Can I hear it again??? One more time! Ugh!
I have a question...what do you think of the Octo-Mom as they've now dubbed her? You know the Angelina Jolie look alike that had 6 kids already and was artificially inseminated and had 8 more??? Believe it or not some of the guys in Tim Horton's were asking us our opinion tonight! Let me know what you gals think???
Don't think I'll be sleepy for awhile the coffee and gabfest has got this ol' gal going! Think I'll work on some laundry. Good night!
Love to all!
