09:32 – It was 35.5F (2C) when I took Colin out this morning, without much wind. Barbara arrived back from Winston about 3:00 yesterday afternoon. Colin and I are both delighted.

On her way out of Winston, she made a small Costco run. It was only $57.16 total, of which more than half was Dentastix treats for Colin. The only other things she picked up were cases of 12 cans each of 14.5-oz. green beans ($7.79), 6-oz. tomato paste ($6.79), and 15-oz. tomato sauce ($7.99). The latter two were “organic”. Both of us would prefer inorganic tomato products, but Costco doesn’t carry them.

I see that there was a national “Day without Immigrants” protest yesterday. What they obviously hoped to prove was that we’d be SOL without immigrants; what they actually proved was that almost no one noticed.

Early next month, there’s to be a general strike of women. Presumably all the prog women will be marching around wearing pink pussy hats and proclaiming how important they are. I predict the actual result will be that no one notices, because the women who actually ARE important won’t be participating in this bullshit. They mostly voted for Trump anyway. As to the strikers, I hope their employers fire all their asses and replace them with good women.
