Well, it’s a short one, only four days of work for me and for many of us.
I have no interest in the Republican National Convention, so I’ve been watching Netflix videos and reading every night this week.
But tomorrow is Friday, and I’m always happy when the weekend arrives.
As you can tell, my blogging interest have waned a bit.
I’m really upset (still) about the Caylee Anthony situation.
Her parents have retained an attorney and a PR firm, and bounty hunter Leonard Padilla reported on Nancy Grace tonight that he thinks there’s a book or movie deal.
Cindy Anthony is telling everyone to get their duffs and find Caylee, and they are doing this?
Something is very wrong here, folks.
My apologies to blogging friends who have warned me all is not square with the Anthony’s.
Hey–I said I wouldn’t blog about this until Caylee is found.
Hopefully I will have more to say tomorrow night, folks.
Then I’m gone Saturday afternoon to Sunday night, going to have a “sleepover” with my grandchildren.
Cindy Anthony told NBC’s Matt Lauer that her granddaughter Caylee is alive.
Cindy told Mr. Lauer that her daughter Casey left Caylee with someone and has “been betrayed” by that person.
Oh yeah, Cindy?
Give authorities the name, let them check the person out.
UPDATE: I SAW CINDY ANTHONY ON THE NANCY GRACE SHOW TONIGHT. I THINK THEY’VE (her doctor, I hope) GOT HER ON SOME KIND OF MEDICATION–HER AFFECT LOOKS TOO BLUNTED, HER EYES HAVE A ‘DEAD’ LOOK TO THEM. SHE SAID, “I KNOW CAYLEE IS COMING BACK TO ME.” I THINK WHAT LEONARD PADILLA SAID LAST NIGHT ON TELEVISION IS RIGHT–SHE’S IN TOTAL DENIAL.
I’ll say it again, I would never have put my parents through something like this.
They wouldn’t have let me–they’d have kicked my butt to kingdom come. My father would have given me the tongue lashing of my life–they both would have.
I know that you care about people.
I saw your concern when a protester was yelling at you, in front of your home. The woman was yelling at you, and you worried about her blood pressure.
You are a nurse, a mother, and a grandmother.
I cannot imagine what you are going through right now, because I am a mother and a grandmother also.
My son is the light of my life, and my grandchildren are my precious treasures.
If I was in your shoes, I just don’t know what I would do.
I’ve said, and written, about how I would act, but the disappearance and suspected death of one of my grandchildren is beyond my comprehension.
God, I don’t know what I would do, how I would act.
And worse, if everyone believed that my child was the perpetrator is even more unthinkable.
But Cindy, you need to suspend your rage and grief for now.
You owe Caylee a decent burial.
Caylee is your blood also, Cindy, and she’s gone.
You know this.
As Casey’s mother, you know, better than anyone, how to get the truth out of your daughter.
I’m sorry that I have judged you harshly throughout this awful time, but it’s not about me, and it’s not about you.
It’s not even about Casey, not right now.
Find Caylee and give her the decent burial she deserves.
Well folks, I may get some even snarkier comments now, but I just had to post this.
I woke up at 6:16 a.m. this morning and could not get back to sleep.
Hate when I do that.
Finally got up about 7:10 a.m., let the dog out, and made coffee.
Now it’s just after 1:00 p.m., my laundry’s almost done, and I’m ready for a little nap.
I’ve been listening to the news around the world and here are my thoughts:
–It’s Caylee Anthony’s 3rd birthday, and I’m praying this little sweetie is alive somewhere
–I mourn for the death of Todd Bachman, the American tourist in Beijing.
–I can’t stand liars, and John Edwards lied. Anybody who thinks they can get away with anything in this world of instant information is a horse’s patootie. John, we are all human, we all make mistakes, and I would have forgiven you quicker if you had just told the ‘arfing truth. As of this minute, I would not vote for John Edwards, alone or with another candidate, for ANY office, let alone president.
Okay, that’s the scoop from me, at least for now.
I’m a wee bit prickly right now, so I’ll just sat TTFN.
