My Twitter feed has been fascinating today, which is a good thing because calls from old and dear friends precluded blogging. Here’s the best of my Twitter.
When my mother died, I inherited both her and my Dad’s old friends (and I do mean “old”; one of them is now 98, having met my Dad in 1935). They are people who are dear to me and it seems to be mutual. If I don’t reach out to them in a timely fashion, they call me.
Today, I called a few old friends and those I hadn’t yet called coincidentally called me. I also got calls from my own friends, which is always nice. It’s therefore been a lovely day (a little sad, too, as one old friend recently had a stroke), but I got absolutely nothing done other than those phone calls. I’ve therefore had almost no time to read and, since I have to pick someone up from the airport soon, I’ll have no time to write anything.
I thought, therefore, that I’d share with you the best of my Twitter feed. (Yes, I do pay attention to Twitter.) These are in no particular order, but they do represent the fascinating mix of things that enliven the home page in my browser.
This week, Cpl Veronica Byrnes Bradley passed away.
She was the face of the Marine Corps recruiting effort during WWII.

Kim Jong Un talked about denuclearization with the South Korean Representatives, not just a freeze. Also, no missile testing by North Korea during this period of time. Great progress being made but sanctions will remain until an agreement is reached. Meeting being planned!

The next is from a conservative Parkland survivor whom the media assiduously ignores:

I’m the happiest man on the planet tonight. My newly adopted 5 year old daughter, for the first time, called me dad.

Dems months ago: “Trump is going to get us killed with the way he is talking about Kim Jong Un”
Today: Kim Jong Un offers invitation to sit down and talk with Trump.
