First Cup of Coffee “Awoke Up”


Good Morning!

Another Friday already!

Today, I’ll open with one of the truths about White Men.

I just hate to take the responsibility, but it’s got to be said sooner or later … so I’ll stick my neck out there and say it.

All other genders and colors are forcing out our superiority.

We’ve tried to stay humble and loveable, but you continue trying to take advantage of these kind traits, so now it’s time to let go of the leash we keep on keeping on ourselves, and let the truth flow!!!

We’re not going to take this anymore.

It’s time to take back our schools, our ethic, our ethnic and lead again.

Back UP the learning curve we go.

You were going to be left behind one way or another, so we might as well quit fooling around and make it less painless for you.

Oh there we go again, trying to be kind, but … it’s really over.

Santa Clause is white, God is White, the Constitution is White, and the White House is White! Sorry life to keep up sith us is such a struggle

We didn’t and don’t do this on purpose.

It’s the natural order of things.

So my first piece of advice for for you today is:Yes, Woke is some sort of awakening, but not even half way to be awakened. You still have a long ways to go.

Instead of attempting to bring us down to your level, why don’t you make it easy on yourself and just go along with advancement, tough as it is, and maybe in a couple of generations of learning our language, math, history, natural sciences, truths, and facing honesty without the help of tribal smoke, you can make it!

We are extremely pleased of those of you that have broken away and see it all clearly.

Welcome! It’s so nice to have you see what we see!

So, sorry about this truth this morning. I’ve only had one cup of coffee!

Maybe the 2nd cup will bring me back to reality and realize that I might as well watch the current state of affairs wear itself down, get a White leader back in there to survive the years as we watch you fade away, wise up or slowly get DNA’d out of existance. LOL rdd



     Finishing my (grow up) years of 11 to boarding the bus for the Navy, Milbank offerred a quiet place for quiet people. 
Not for me! 
     Those years for me were filled with trial and error, learning from my mistakes, and wonderment. 
     I wondered as I wandered there, seen by everyone, remembered by most. 
You could wake up in the morning there and walk downtown where everyone remembered everything from the day before! 
When you screwed up ... you owned it forever! 
Well, at least, until the rememberers died, and you managed to blend a bit better.
     I find it curious that living in Tucson, you could make a decision wobble, get in your vehicle and drive away from it, and it would be forgotten amongst the thousands of personality, learning, and mental wobbles going on at the same time! 
     Now, as I look back, I can see the 'wobbles' going on all around me in the village of wobbles. They had their own prairie village brand, absolutely!!!! 
     Even I remember personality wobbles that didn't seem too important, so immersed in my own day to day, hour to hour, minute to minute self. 
Even here in Tucson, I had a few learning wobbles, corrected, adjusted, and witnessed by few. Admonishing myself or not, I walked away never to let that situation happen again. 
     Forgotten in moments, minutes, hours or days, soooooo much people noise was going on that little Ron goes on smarter, a little more worldly and full of experiences that we get caught up in and that we had nothing to do with. 
     I am one that is happier this way. 
I don't carry so much baggage anymore because no one really cares. I only matter because I stay under the radar of the ambient noise of all of those other baggage carriers. 
     And it's true ... I 'wobble' much less.      
     This month, I turn 72. 
     I simply do not have the energy or time to 'wobble' much anymore and if I do, I might not even notice!!!! LOLOLOLOL

First Cup of Coffee Wednesday 3.3.21 5:55am


Good Morning

Yesterday’s humidity was 5%. My skin was like lizard skin so I’m oiled up today.

Our winds will pick up this afternoon as a probably rain front will move through, hopefully!

I know this seems a strange report for a post here, but Tucson has ‘Snowbirds’ and escapers from everywhere right now,

and Spring Baseball is beginning in Phoenix!

Lyle, Hank, and Julien Bue … Hank (my grandfather), and Julien are in the South Dakota baseball ‘Hall of Fame’!

Scott and his girlfriend Samantha are heading for Salt River Stadium in Phoenix to see the Diamondbacks and Angel’s spring game on Thursday. 

There are 10 active spring training fields in Phoenix and I’ve been to all of them for Seniors Summer league World Series games over the years.

 It looks good for a normal baseball season this summer as things loosen up!

Scott, myself, Brian 

Liberal drama to the left of me and liberal drama to the right of me, with our weak conservatives mixed in, are feeding the lame media paychecks IS the Big News. Oof!!!!

Stay free … Have a nice day.


03.01.21 First Cup of Coffee Monday 7:14am


Good Morning

As you can see, I’ve already been reading and posting on “One Cup of Coffee, which may be the Title to my new posts!

My ‘Daily Post’ has fallen by the wayside as there weren’t enough readers to justify the time I’ve spent each day. Still, it was fun and probably will re-titling it to be less confining.
I hope you all enjoyed reading “The Big Wind” I posted and re-posted up for you.
I get Kenzie in ‘Grandpa’s School’ two more times, and then after next week they go into spring break at which time they are attempting FULL TIME actual school.
In all, a great adventure for me these weeks.
I graduated from completely nervous to reasonably comfortable with a 1st grader that can suddenly fall out of her chair, and then just as suddenly, reason her way through a math problem.
Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle with a smile and extreme tolerance. LOL
So, have a nice day and continue to evolute!

Try not to trash our planet, try not to procreate, but practice all you want! rdd


Fly Me To The Moon

Daily Post 02.19.2021, 8:45am Another Friday


Good Morning


Yep! It’s another Friday!

I’m listening to “Willie’s Roadhouse” music on my Dish … Waiting for news about Scott’s gall bladder removal today.

We can’t wait in the hospital anymore so Kathy took him to a hospital on the other side of Tucson.

And then she went to work because it was closer to there that here at the house.

So, I’m staying busy with the things that I do. Reading, watching the news and listening to music.

So, here’s one for you while we’re waiting:

I Can’t Stop Loving You

I hope you like my Ray Charles version … Just click on the title!

Here’s a sound track I made for Scott (click on his name below)



Have a nice day!


Daily Post … 02.18.2021 Thursday 8:03am


Good Morning

It’s tough to watch any news right now. There’s not a lot of good stuff happening. 99% of those in the news are repeat offenders and their prosecutors are also offenders so …!!!!

More at the bottom of this page!

And I’m susceptible to fighting battles that I can’t help win other than trying to be

creative some way, some how!

So, here goes for today:


A terra cotta sculpture of Jesse when he was young and I wanted to show him his eternal daily pouty expression. I got him to sit for one hour … a battle! Now it turns out, he was just being deep!

It sits in the laundry room. I never fired it because I was just playing, but Kathy likes it.

That’s laundry room dust covering him. I should have done more of this. It just falls off my fingers.


All of the other people had bulldogs and huskies, pinchers and shepards … I had little Maxie… Hiding.



Awake at 4am anxious for the day!

Still seething from the lies from Biden and his Vice, about Covid vaccines and vaccinations in motion.

You can expect more now that they’ve shown themselves.


Something that Rush Limbaugh said went somethin like:

Liberals look out over the crowd and see cash cows and votes to keep them in power.

Conservatives look out over the Nation and see ‘Potential’ for greatness!

I’ve seen several variations of this and I like this one.

and another… The pain of freedom!

So many …

Daily Post 02.16.2021, Tuesday


Good Afternoon!

I was up at 4am this morning, getting the things done and prepared to be done because I had to

go out to Marana (20min North) to help change out Brian’s water heater for the 2nd time in 3 weeks.

Something happened to the drain plug area, and it wouldn’t hold water with it’s plastic plug and receiver.

My first Covid shot was yesterday and I felt good except for some area soreness in the needle poke area.

So I went out, pulled out the bad water heater, took it town town so Brian could get the warranty and

a new water heater. (he upgraded)

We figured out that the water heater that Crystal bought was not the water heater she received! It was one

model down, therefor the plastic parts.

Anyway, 2 1/2 hours after we started, the fire was burning in the new one!

I went home, did some chores, went to the bank, and sat down.

Next thing I know it’s 3:10pm.

Somehow, I got up and got the dishes into the dishwasher and hit the start button and realized that yesterday, the

guy in the medic tent at the VA told us we might get a bit drowsy and blah today.

Yep! LOL

I’m fine, Brian’s got hot water at his house, my arm is a little sore and my nose is running. Ugh (allergies)

The cold wind is blowing the dark bottomed marshmallow clouds from West to East. … the next storm for Texas?

Anyway, have a nice day.

I’ll do better tomorrow.

I’m going to take a nappy!
