Devine intervention at it's best =)

I went to the park this morning to get in a 5 mile run. I wasn't happy about it. The weather is gorgeous. The sun is shining. But I'd rather be home with my windows open jamming to my radio. But I sucked it up and went anyway.

The parking lot is usually full with the cars of walkers, runners, bikers, and nature enthusiasts....and of course the transvestite freak that I cross paths with every now and then. But not today. The parking lot is empty save for the lone white Eyes & Ears car.

Hmmm...I wonder where everyone is today?

Walked down to the path....I stretched....not a sole passed by on the path. Strange. Ran .15 miles (my trusty Garmin told me so) in one direction and encountered a rather large fallen tree blocking the path. Oh man! Turned around to run in the other direction and made it .25 miles more before I found the path submerged in a lake from the 6 inches of rain that Mother Nature punished us with over the weekend.

I WALKED back to my car.

Running plan was officially aborted.

Divine intervention?

Someone upstairs didn't want me running today....

And I'm OK with that!

Tracey said...

There isn't a comment button for your newest post about Biden. Anyway...I totally agree...I actually heard that of all the hundred of thousands of dollars that he has made in the past 9 years he has only given $3000 to charity!!! What a dork!

Leslie said...

Leslie stands from her seat and claps wildly. Bravo Tammy. I understand why you didn't allow comments on that post. It's impossible to please everybody. But if they can't still enjoy your blog, then like you said, see ya. Or was it something nicer? lol~

OHmommy said...

Ahhh. Where are you comments from your newest post?

I was going to say amen for speaking what you feel. I think it is liberating! Seriously.

You were smart as to not allow comments on your political rant. I am sure it escaped you in your hate filled diatribe at the way taxation in a democracy works, so we will allow that indiscretion pass and continue to read your blog.
We are sure that you continue to use the public highways, schools, parks and other lovely things that this country affords you to do.
By the way, we all work our asses off and my husband makes a good buck himself. I might even wager that as a director of finance in a multi national communication firm that he hauls in more than most.
Here is where you and I differ my dear: I keep it to myself,and refuse to shove it down peoples throats how successful he is.
I love this country and proudly work to 50 hours a week in a low paying job, but a job that I love to do. Working for a huge charity gives me great joy.
Although we paid in income tax and property tax well over $80K last year, we take pride in the fact that it supported so many worthwhile public projects. I am happy to pay taxes and I wish we could do more to help others.
We are at a point in our lives where we have been successful and fortunate enough to allow me to be a SAHM while our kids grew (I just went back to work) and it pleases us to no end to continue to give others a leg up whenever we can.
Your selfish attitude puts you in a place almost by your lonesome in this day an age.
Get a grip on reality and realize that it is cooperation that is needed in turbulent times. The financial greedy are subordinate.

Hey Tammy - I'm neither republican or democrat because I can't vote - but if people quit reading your blog over a difference of opinion, they aren't people you want reading your blog anyway! Just because they don't agree with your politics doesn't mean you can't be friends. You did get me curious though - and unless you make over $608,000 a year (what do I know maybe you do) you won't pay a dime more in taxes than you do now.

bahamamama is bang on.
We don't care about your money or your political affiliations.
We can be friends even if you do make a kazillion dollars, just don't put in our faces.
OK?
We love your blog rich or poor darling!
