It’s Tuesday

I am today (was yesterday and will be for days to come) slaving in the soil of a yard-sale-to-be – set for Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Four houses on my street are joined in this endeavor – I qualify with my garage full of goods that have fallen off my sister’s moving truck, as she and her husband prepare to re-retire in San Francisco.

As I work, headphones are firmly in place and I hear a CSpan conversation about ‘what government is for’.

The Constitution was written, or so it says:

“. . . in order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, ensure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the blessings of Liberty . . . “

Works for me. (I don’t see much about personal wealth in there . . . )

Meanwhile, blogging will remain light.
