I Don’t See Color

Here’s a phrase that sincerely chaps my ass. What if the police ask you to describe me? Whachugonsay? Discovered my disgust with this statement after getting into a discussion about who can and can’t say nigger. We concluded with the thought that anyone can say anything (conditional) because this is a country that constitutionally guarantees freedom of speech. I added that saying anything means being ready and able to take […]

Caught on to the Mad Movida that is Fraud and Grand Theft by Safeco Insurance and Protech Construction

One of the crimes commited here is conspiracy to commit fraud. Then, there is the grand theft. Corruption of government inspectors may be involved as no building permits exist and code violations continue in effect. From the time Kent Stiles took over the handling of this claim from Trevor Haaswyk, the intention was to defraud, plunder the claim for as much money as possible. I am so sure I am […]

What is Wrong with US?

Are we really all racists? Are we all irresponsible? Are we all trying to die? From opioids to laundry pods, are we really this stupid? I can’t watch the news unless it comes from someplace outside of America. I am sick of being exposed, on the daily, to the lies, misdirection, and hatred coming from the top. I don’t want to see that ugly man’s face, but it is plastered […]

SAFECO INSURANCE BAD FAITH

I have to get this down before memory fails because it seems to me that Safeco Insurance is attempting to cover up their bad faith. After asking my adjuster a question about the funds remaining in my claim and a question about the engineering firm that drew faulty plans, she did not communicate with me for 2.5 months. When I heard from her, indirectly through the temporary housing agency, it […]

No, this isn’t about knitting, though that is my world nowadays. No, this is about remembering, triggered memory. Read the name Owen and cast back to my neighbors, the Owens. Large family, all varying shades of mocha with the exception of the only son, Anthony. I secretly adored his handsome chocolate brown frame. It was never curious to me that he was the only brown child; it was marvelous. I […]

Sherrice Iverson

Sherrice would be about 27 if she had not been stolen from the world. This baby was raped and murdered in a Las Vegas bathroom stall as a friend of her assailant, who knew what was happening to her, exited the bathroom and continued about his business. He was dubbed a Bad Samaritan. First time I ever heard this concept used, though its existence should have occurred to me. There […]

Blessing in Disaster (Real/Real)

The winds were high and apparently gentle, but the property-line tree fell on my home. Happy Earth Day! The tree was over 60′ tall by a ways. The utility pole stands that high and the tree towered over that, all five branch trunks growing from the main stem. Hard to believe the tree started from something like a weed, easily yanked out of the earth before it can grow into […]
