Kermitt Gosnell, Gun Control, Celebrity Boxing, Cancer, teeth and the Young and the Restless. Oh my it’s Friday Fragments on steroids…

Sometimes you have an idea for a post but just do not yet have enough information to turn it into a full post just yet. Every Friday it is possible to make a list of these thoughts. We call them Friday Fragments and you are welcome to join us. Just stop over and say hello to our lovely host Mrs. 4444. You will find very easy to follow directions there.

Friday Fragments

I am SO thankful for Friday Fragments right now because I feel like my head is going to explode. I have too much to think about. I am not complaining because life is good, for my family, at this moment and for this, I am grateful.

The story on this abortion doctor continues to make me cringe and cry. The trial has been graphic, which I can usually handle. Because it upsets me, so much it would be easy not to follow the story, not to pay attention. I am following because I need to understand, at least try to understand the extent people will go to, to excuse this filthy, cruel, lazy and very, very greedy man.  This is NOT an abortion case. It is a murder case. It is also a negligence case. I would love to hear your thoughts on this…

Sorry but here goes another little rant. I have tried to be quiet about this issue but now it is really getting on my nerves.  Middle class woman who lost children to violence surrounded President Obama the other day.  My heart breaks for these families. I just HATE seeing them used as political props. I know it happens on both sides and it has been happening since the beginning of time. I would LOVE to see our President and or our First Lady standing on the streets of Philadelphia or Chicago telling the mothers there what they are going to do to keep their children from killing each other and keeping guns out of their hands.

Unfortunately, that would take hard work, REAL commitment. We are entering another election cycle so they do not have time for that. [I almost did it Sweet Brown but I am trying to be serious!] So it is easier to create some stupid legislation under the guise of gun control, get the people to support it [ even though they have NO idea what it is ] take a few guns away from law abiding citizens, pretend we all made a difference, pat ourselves on the back and move on. Shame on ALL of us for buying into the charade and double shame on all of us for not admitting out loud what the REAL issues are and dealing with them as human beings.

How is it possible I have been watching Y & R for 40 years? I am not even embarrassed about it either.  They showed old clips all week and oh my goodness the memories…

Amazon bought Goodreads. This is either going to be very good for authors and readers or very bad for authors and readers. They may do nothing with the site and just leave it as it is…

My dental student told me today after some minor dental surgery that I will have 2 or 3 more appointments and then we can schedule the last jaw surgery. I’m beginning to be able to see the end of this scary journey…

I was happy to see my friend Joelle last weekend. Her doctors are happy to report at this moment she is cancer free. She has a long road of recovery ahead of her but wow, she is just blowing me away with her courage, strength and faith. Please keep praying for her, her husband [currently in Afghanistan] and their children. I believe it is working!

I am lucky enough to live in the same area as the creator of Celebrity Boxing, Damon Feldman. Unfortunately, some people around here give Damon a real hard time but the 9-0 retired champ is just trying to make a living to support himself and his family.  He is having a press conference tonight to announce his plans. I am SO excited to be going and cannot wait to write about it all. I am hoping the ‘stuck ups’ in the area can lighten up a bit and let us all have some fun. I would love to see Debbie Wasserman Shultz box Sarah Palin, just saying. Who would you like to see duke it out, for charity of courseJ?

I am freaking out about the A-to-Z Challenge. I cannot believe it starts Monday. I have one post written. Did you sign up?

A-Z Badge

To my Christian friends please have a Blessed Easter. To my Jewish friends please have a Blessed Passover. To my Atheist friends I love you and will pray for you anyway, it can’t hurt.

John and I will be spending the day with the kids and grandkids, I am looking forward to it so very much. How are you spending the weekend?

  • I had no idea Amazon bought Goodreads. Wow! They’re pretty much going to own everything.

    Have a great Easter!

  • You have a blessed Easter too.

  • I couldn’t agree more about using women and children to promote himself which IMHO is what he does. Can’t get started on that!!!

    Praying for your friend’s recovery and for your remaining dental work and jaw surgery. Our youngest had some pretty extensive jaw surgery some years back and he did very well, so I hope that’s encouraging for you!

    Blessings for your Easter!

    I would love to do the A-Z challenge, but I just don’t think I can come up with that much stuff this month 😉 I should do it sometime, though.

    I have to agree with you on the gun lobbying. I personally do not believe that criminals should be the only ones with guns. If law abiding citizens have no way to defend themselves, then the bad guys will always win 🙁

    My hubby told me about the doctor in PA. Abortion is horrible anyway, but this man committed murder even by the Federal standards. Those children took a breath, the magic formula for our twisted society that they suddenly became human beings with that breath. He should be punished for his crimes.

    Have a great Easter yourself!!

    • I always feel so accomplished after the A-Z and I do love having all of those posts available to use again:)
      Yes this doctor had absolutely no regard for life whatsoever, well except his own.

  • I think my hubby used to watch Y&R – I’ve never gotten into soaps (well, except the nighttime shows that are technically ‘nighttime soaps’…) 😉

    I didn’t realize Amazon bought Goodreads – I’ll have to scope that out! 🙂

    One of these days I should jump in and do the A-Z Challenge…good luck! 🙂 Have a Happy Easter! 🙂

    Pajama Day, Easter Snafu, April Fool’s Day for Friday Fragments Fun

  • Bee:

    Good luck with the A-Z Challenge! I chickened out lol And have a happy Easter!
