Blues and greens…

Well, the Senate passed their version of the tax bill. My guess: the Republican House will rubber stamp it…but..we shall see. I think it is done. But you never know.

But..I have a pretty walk on the way home from the office:

I was struck by the colors.

I shot this through my office window sort of as a joke (my wife is in Florida and posted a genuinely pretty sunset photo) and liked the reflection; you can see the photos that I have on my office board. I sometimes post “fake office wall” photos but this is genuine.

I saw some Bradley Basketball too:

The Men beat a decent Eastern Illinois team and looked reasonably good in doing so.

The women pulled away at the end to handle Illinois-Chicago, in a high intensity game that saw lots of diving for lose balls, players hitting the floor, etc.

This is Kaboom, the Bradley mascot. It is a gargoyle; the name “kaboom” comes from what the Bradley radio announcer yells when someone dunks the ball.

Workout notes:

I did shuffle 5 slow miles on my own though.

  1. Ollie,

    I was just wondering if Trump’s recent re-tweeting of some (unsubstantiated) anti-muslim videos from a far right neo-nazi group called “Britain First” has really made the news at all………or is that too complex for Billy-Bob or Keith-Ken to understand ?

    One of their members murdered a Member of Parliament last year in the run up to the “Brexit” referendum, and I wonder what the reaction would be if the roles were reversed and the British PM had done the same thing from a group that had killed a congressman or Senator…………

    He really is an unpleasant arsehole !

    • Yes, it made some news, but no, Republicans had no problem with it. The Rs who don’t like Trump are either angry that he hasn’t built that border wall OR because he expresses their ideas in unpleasant tones.

  2. Oh well………..and now he’s poking the hornet nest in the Middle East to distract attention from his other “problems”.

    Might just be easier to sit back and watch the World burn…………..
