Yee-haw for the progressive women of Texas!

Hi, people! Sam expects to be at the office all night with a group of in-house clients, so here I am, horsing around with the Howdygram and pondering my next meal. Something involving Beanit Butter is a distinct possibility. But first, a post.

Let’s begin with a gigantic YEE-HAW for the progressive women of Texas who rallied today in Austin, protesting Rick Perry’s 19th century anti-abortion regulations that would shut down safe and legal women’s clinics throughout the state. Check out these crowds ... and a close-up of my favorite sign!
In case you’re wondering, on July 9 the Texas Senate will try again to pass Perry’s anti-abortion horseshit. If I didn’t have so many mobility issues — i.e., crappy feet, crappy knees and diabetic neuropathy — I’d volunteer to be first in line for the festivities at the state capitol. This is like the 1960s all over again, except I don’t have any classes tomorrow!  

I’m having issues tonight with my blog software, such as annoying error messages and a “preview” feature that isn’t working. As a matter of fact, I don’t even know if I’ll be able to publish my post when I’m finally through writing it. In a word, this STINKS. I reported the problem to the Blogger user network but haven’t heard back from anybody. I’ll bet they’re all watching TV.

Actually, TV sounds like a pretty good idea right about now because I’ve got some fine films stored on our DVR. These include: Broadway Melody of 1936 starring Robert Taylor and Eleanor Powell, Rebecca (1940) starring Joan Fontaine and Laurence Olivier, Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter (1957) starring Tony Randall and Jayne Mansfield and That Touch of Mink (1962) starring Doris Day and Cary Grant. All fantastic movies, am I right?

Thanks for stopping by. I have to try and publish this post now.
