Like always, the book ‘Pet Sematary by Stephen King ‘ was a ten times better than the movie. It is one of my favorite King books. In Pet Cemetary fashion, it appears a Korean Company is going to Clone Dead Pets. As much as I truly love my 29 yo horse Scooter, I could never do this.
Sure, I like the way Scooter is built. He is 14.3 hands and, thanks to his Two-Eyed Jack breeding, he is muscular and stocky, in his younger days he had enough cow sense for both of us, he is fast and still yet can stop on a dime. But, it is his soul who makes him who he is. I honestly believe the soul cannot be cloned. Genes, heck yeah, but the real deal, not a chance in hell.
I have never been a fan of Jane F0nda. For a hundred different reasons, mainly her ex-Patriotism to our Country and our Troops. So, I was far from shocked when I read NBC apologizes for Fonda using the ‘C’ word on The Today Show. .
Can Fonda be any more tasteless? Yeah, I know she is 70 years old but that is no excuse for using the ‘C’ word. I use plenty of foul language but, that word isnt even in my vocabulary, it is 100% tasteless.
While I am semi-ranting. Wee One’s pre-op was rescheduled to Wednesday instead of Monday. Now he goes the day before his surgery. Wednesday happens to be the same day I rescheduled my doctors appointment from Monday. Gah! Now my doctor cannot see me for nearly 2 weeks. I am still coughing and horribly congested. I wanna trade this body in for a new one…..
This morning, I woke up at 5:30 am to get my chores done and get on the rode to the MathCounts competitions. I went outside to do my chores, everything was covered in ice. I woke up hubs and told him he was going to have to drive the boys to the MathCounts competitions. I do not like driving on ice.
So, they went. They did well. I stayed home with Wee One. Once it warmed up to 37 degrees, it started pouring down rain the entire day. It is still pouring rain and storming right now as I type.
The weatherman is promising a lot of heavy, wet, snow tomorrow.
And, tomorrow evening is hub’s church’s dinner. I promised I would go. I do not want to go, but I am going.
