    Believe it or not, I promised myself I would write this week’s column before the election results were out! Why? Well, because I wanted LOL to still mean Laugh Out Loud! One of my sons emailed me that otherwise LOL might mean “Leave Our Land!” Ouch! So, change can be inevitable, and it’s the laughter that’s optional!

    Wouldn’t it be interesting if we could go back in time and see a loved one in the phase of their lives which we are currently experiencing? When we are young we think we are worlds apart from our parents and grandparents, yet as we grow up into their ages we gain an entirely different understanding of who they really were. Personally, I think it would be fascinating to see my mom at my age as well as hear her thoughts about personal victories and struggles.

    As you read this column today I am celebrating! But, Doc, the results are not official yet! Oh yes, I know, but what I am truly celebrating is taking off my hip boots! Yep, there has been so much ———— being thrown by the politicians, I had to keep them on for way too long. Now, if you don’t know about this, find a Texan and ask him or her! As for election results … I plead the 5th! Now, for some LOLs …

    In a publication recently accepted in Astronomy and Astrophysics, an international team involving French and Canadian researchers using Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (CFHT) have studied Malin 1, a nearby galaxy that has been known only since the 1980s and shows an extremely large disk of gas and stars. The new observations of Malin 1, a prototype of the class of “giant low surface brightness galaxies” allowed the team to obtain new results in contradiction with one of the hypotheses concerning the formation of this type of galaxy.

    OK, folks … one week from today we are done! Election is in the past and I am sooooo relieved. I have just about run out of funny rants and it is just a matter of celebration time! … and don’t try and guess what I know I will be celebrating!

    As I start to write today’s column the warning sirens are sounding the upcoming storms! I must keep saying to myself: Auwe! Auwe! This so reminds me of my Texas grandpappy’s favorite saying when we awaited the storms and tornadoes at home: “Honey, if we gonna pi— on Mother Earth, she gonna pi— on us!” Now, some healthy suggestions to keep you busy: Pick a foreign accent and talk in it all day! … Learn the Morse code! … Build a fort out of tissue and toilet paper rolls! … Become a ventriloquist! … Make a macaroni sculpture! … Practice exotic bird calls. … And the grand finale: Draw happy faces on your toes!

    Think I’ll send this “rant” to Washington. Whatcha think? Do you know why a banana is like a politician? They come in and first they’re green; then they turn yellow; and then they’re rotten! I also think Congress members should wear uniforms, you know, like NASCAR drivers, so we could identify their corporate sponsors! … and now some LOLs from my favorite Phyllis D.

    Aloha, good friends! Howze this for an appropriate beginner? I like political jokes, unless they get elected! Let’s get down to business. What is really important? Climate change, undernourished and undereducated children, domestic violence and equal rights. So now let’s put all the politics in the trash can where they belong. Yep, and add a few politicians just for flavor! LOLs … LOLs.

    When you are in need of personal care, it can be very reassuring to have family there to help make difficult decisions, supporting you through your journey while ensuring that you are given high-quality care.

    Aloha, friends and family! Yep, you know how this is going to begin, so let’s get going! Did you get Mike Pence’s galling amnesia? Yep, he made no apologies during the tense debate! Also, what did you think about Pence’s fantasy running mate. His Donald Trump bore little resemblance to reality! Think about it. Are you laughing yet? OK, just one more. Trump has a new nickname: Flip Flop Trump. He has changed his political party five (yes, that is five) times between 1999 and 2012! Google it! … LOL. And remember, everyone has a right to be stupid. Politicians just abuse the privilege!
