Miss Birdie and the Show


Well, what about that show last night, Lizzie Beth honey? The folks here was a little ill with me after the other one -- the one where that hateful orange-faced, yaller-haired feller, which I don't believe that's his natural color a tall, was prowling around while Miss Hillary was talking, making faces and interrupting after she had sat all polite and quiet whilst he was going on.

I got so put out with the way that he was doing that one time whilst she was talking and he was creeping up behind her, I kindly forgot it was on the TV and I hollered "Look out, honey, he's right behind you!" and flung my water cup at him.


There weren't but a little water in it and it didn't do no harm but the nurse come and talked with me about how I had ought to behave if I wanted to watch the show last night. So I promised to do my best but said maybe they had ought to make sure I didn't have nothing in reach but for the button I mash if I need someone. 

Him and me both done better last night. He didn't prowl around and I didn't throw nothing. But, lord have mercy, didn't no one ever teach him not to interrupt all the time? His mama had ought to have slapped him twist-legged back when he was a young un. I admire Miss Hillary for not back-handing him when he kept butting in on her and calling her names. She's a strong one.


And when that referee feller asked would each of them go by what the voters had said, win  or lose, and he said that would depend on what happened -- I tell you, Lizzie Beth, I never heard of such a thing. Just like a spoiled young un who sees he's losing a checkers games and will dash the board and pieces to the ground rather than admit he lost.

But this ain't no game. It's our country and our government and our votes. His folks sure done a bad job not to teach him better. 

My vote? Oh, don't worry. I already put in for voting by mail. The quicker I can send in my vote for Miss Hillary, the better.

I am happy to say that I've missed all of the debates.

I've actually missed them, too, and just read up on them the following day. I think it would be upsetting to sit through the whole debate because of the way Trump behaves. i wouldn't want to watch 90 minutes of him snorting and making faces and waving that finger of his. But it sounds as though Hilary held her own pretty well and always manages to stay focused - which is what I want in a president. It would be humiliating to think he was the face of America in foreign dealings.

Thank you, Miss Birdie! It's always a pleasure to hear your take on something. I sure do hope you are getting better and feeling more like yourself.

Miss Birdie, you nailed it! And that's all I shall read about that spectacle.
Get well soon,

Thank you for your choice words, Miss Birdie. Yes, it's mainly in the raising of a man, but there's also a sense that lots of people are tired of the old ways. They want things to be done differently, so that rebel attitude seems to be more tolerated, and even cheered by some. I'm pretty unhappy about him being the one who runs against the first woman to run for President...but since he's so distasteful, it does make her looks a lot better, and not just because she's a woman.

Miss Birdie, that really was some show last night. It was hard to believe my eyes and ears some of the time.

Hoping you keep on getting well. xo

Wish there were more like you, Miss Birdie!

H. Clinton is strong and D. Trump really doesn't realize he is a candidate for presidency.

Thérèse said...

What happened to you? I have to read your past posts...

Thérèse said...

On the mending path that's what counts.
Sending all my best thoughts for the best recovery.

Vicki--thank you for your gentle take on the recent encounters of Miss Hillery and the Monster [my name for him]. I am up in the middle of at night Friday morning waiting on the cold front and reading your blog. I simply could not watch the last debate--my blood pressure just goes through the roof every time that man opens his mouth. God bless the engineer who invented the mute button on the remote. I will probably have to replace my betteries sooner than normal I have used it so much.

So glad you are on the better side of being ready to get back to the farm--hope time moves as swiftly as possible. I am glad you are feeling like blogging.

Yes indeed! The sooner that man goes home, the better!

Jim Egerton said...

Thank you Miss Birdie for your take on Donald duck. One blessing, the more he opens his mouth the better Hillery's chances get.

Get well soon. We are all pulling for you.

My ballot came in the mail yesterday and I've never been so relieved to return it ! #imwithher. And you, you are amazing Vicki, and I loved picturing you escaping into chuckles with Miss Birdie and Miss Hillery! Xo

You tell it like it is, Miss Birdie. I've always admired that about you.
