Well, I Never Been To Spain. Do-Do-Du-Do

But I kinda like the music.

tunn19aI have Niece. Female: of course. Gay; who cares? Liberal; aw, fuck. She “unfollowed & unfriended” me (and probably cussed me a bit) on FB cause she posted this meme on how Whites have no culture. You know: Black=African Culture. Asian=Asian Cultere, etc. White=It’s about color. And I took exception to that and tried to start a discussion about it. No go there! You cannot “argue” with a Liberal. After she posted back “I know you’re racist so your thoughts don’t matter” I just sorta went balistic on her and told her to get back to me when she’s willing to “discuss” things without using the Race card cause I don’t agree with her.

So, that’s one less Liberal clogging up my feed. Still, it kept me up half the damned night. According to her reasoning (Black=African Culter, etc) that would make Christians a Race. Babtists a Race. Etc. Besides, would an American Born Black = AFrican Culture, or American Culture (and we do have one)? If a White is born in Japan, grows up in Japan, eats, sleeps, and shits Japanese, aren’t they Japanese?

Personally, I don’t think skin color has anything to do with what Culture one participates in. Blacks born in America should identify with American Culture. Anyone born in America should identify with American Culture. They’re American.

Of course, America is a hodge podge of all cultures of the people that immigrated here. That’s why I can enjoy Spaghetti on Mondays, Taco Tuesday, Swedish Meatballs on Wednesday, and the All You Can Eat Chinese food on Saturdays.

Without “guilt” that I’m appropriating another culture.

Other than that there is just not a whole hell of a lot going on. The 10-meter Tuesday Evening Chat Net went well but only 5 of us checked in. SWMBO is home and I think I’ll go spent some time with her before going to lay down and read a bit.

Last Day In Oregon, Ohio

Goodbye's have been said. Spent the day packing all the "stuff" we've been given into those large bins we bought and loading them into the truck. Joiner wasn't as hard to load as I thought it'd be. Good! Weighs down the back of the truck but I think the load will be okay.

​

SWMBO has gone off to her class in Ann Harbor so I'm puttering around the hotel and getting all my stuff packed. We'll put everything but a change of clothes into the truck when she gets back so we can get the hell out of Dodge by 0500 tomorrow. Should take about 11 hours to get to Horn Lake, Ms where my Uncle lives. (Called him and he's excited we're on our way.)
Sat outside and talked to some of the Hams I've gotten to know (as much as I can in only a couple of weeks). Nice guys and I really will miss a couple of them; but plan to keep in touch via e-mail. They really made me feel welcomed.

And that's it. May go outside and talk some more around 2200 and I might get to see SWMBO pull in.
