Want to hear a secret? I don't give a rat's ass about Osama Bin Laden's final moments. I don't need to see a schematic of his hideout, or learn, blow by blow, how they brought him down. I read the New York Times obituary yesterday - it's really interesting. I learned a lot about him.
Now he's gone. Must we drag ourselves through every little detail of his passing, over and over again? Why?? I'm ready to move on. Is that a bad thing?
My plan for today includes avoiding all sources of "news." For the next few days I will focus very specifically on spending time with people I love, cleaning the chateau, doing some fun cooking. All the rest of y'all can tune in to every grueling, horrible detail about the end of Osama Bin Laden. Or ... drop by the chateau for a cup of coffee, a beer, a glass of wine. We can speak of other things, yes? I say yes.
I can't resist taking pics of the pollen residue on cars at this time of year. It's rather perverse.
