The Day After...

So, yesterday today* was September 11th.

Which, among other things, is Mrs. Drang's birthday.

My blogging friends, including those I have yet to meet, mostly posted... something.

Mind you, the whole thing still chokes me up, and makes me see red. Thus, in past years I posted videos which expressed the anger that Americans felt on September 11th,and many of us still do today.

However, it seems to me that the date has turned into yet another one on which we mark a box on the obligatory expression on whatever it has been deemed appropriate. (SEE: Christmas, Thanksgiving, et. al.)

Bobbi summed it up pretty well in her post, 11 September.

It does not help my attitude when our so-called "national leadership" seems bound and determined to sell us out to the adversary.

So, we were going to celebrate Mrs. Drang's birthday by going to the fair, ditched that, sent the morning doing not much, did some grocery shopping.

I installed a Surefire fore-end on my shotgun, then cooked dinner. Managed not to give either of us food poisoning

Just to show that I am not a complete curmudgeon, though, here is a Feel Good Video with a 9/11 tie-in: This Search and Rescue Dog and New York Hero Gets to Have the Best Day Ever Exploring New York City

*EDIT: Harummph, this was supposed to be scheduled to post in the wee small hours of 9/12. Oh, well.
