Outdoors In Western Kentucky The End Of January

Got to spend the better part of the day outdoors. It has been one of the warmest January’s I can recall. Supposed to get sunshine today. Which I plan to stay indoors this afternoon to watch the defense side of the impeachment trial. Now that will be a testament to my patience if I can endure it. Found out all of these proceedings can be viewed later on various places such as utube. May have to watch some of it at a later time. Sunshine sounds so wonderful when you have not seen it for a while. In fact as I write this I looked out the backdoor and could see stars. Looked wonderful to me after not seeing them for a while…

Struggling In The Flat Winter Light

I have been struggling the last couple days to get anything decent photographically. The flat gray winter days with dismal light is tough. Trying many shutter speeds and shooting mostly with my most open aperture. Saw the field mouse in the first image and it was so close I could not shoot it with my long lens. The only other lens I had was a wide angle. So I reached out to within a couple feet and used flash to catch its picture. It was feeding on spilled grain and must have been hungry enough to not scare off. The weather cool but not cold. Walked a lot and a few old haunts to¬† get as much as I could. Still not a lot of active critters about…

This Impeachment Trial = Our Freedom

I feel it is my duty to follow the impeachment proceedings. Time spent indoors watching television which is not a preference of mine. This particular impeachment trial in my mind directly effects the freedom which I have enjoyed through out my lifetime. Furthermore, it will relate to the freedom that my children and grandchildren would have in the future.

Unlike past impeachments in my lifetime this trial by the senate if not conducted fairly could result in future presidents having the unchallenged will to do

“WHATEVER I WANT “

Which has been stated by Donald J Trump our current president that feels he has the power to do.

The partisan vote brought to the senate by the house already portrays the possibility that the senate may make a farce of the valid balance of power that has allowed me to live in a free country. Hearing the house impeachment process I can not believe that not one republican house member voted in favor of the two impeachment articles voted through by the democrats. I am a registered democrat but have always voted for whom I felt was the best candidate regardless of party.

I implore the leader of the senate, who I have voted for in the past to insure that a fair and complete trial be performed. Allow enough documents and witnesses for the truth to come out. I normally have no doubt that following the procedures set forth by the founders of our constitution that my freedoms will continue. However, as the extreme partisan direction that our elected officials seem to be following in the current proceedings it has me concerned. As my drill sergeant would scream to wake me in my younger years.

” LISTEN UP PEOPLE ” our freedom is at stake here.

I scream ” WAKE UP SENATORS ” I shall hold you responsible… *

LET FREEDOM IN AMERICAN CONTINUE TO FLY

*Note: Notice I make no threats to the senators for it shall be their freedom that is lost as well as that of their children and grandchildren…
