Wedding products are The Howdygram Store’s biggest sellers. Go figure.

It’s 3:45 Sunday morning and the Internet is on fire with a unified and desperate shout to IMPEACH DONALD TRUMP ... and the voices are coming from every corner of society, including — surprisingly — lots of Americans who actually voted for this freak. It’s only been eight days since his pathetic inauguration ... and I’M READY TO DUMP TRUMP RIGHT NOW. Raise your hand if you agree, okay? Yesterday was Holocaust Memorial Day, and Donald Trump decided to commemorate the event by not mentioning Jews in his proclamation and then banning refugees and Muslims from entering the United States. This is the first time in my life I’ve ever been embarrassed to be an American. Holy shit, Donald Trump and the people around him are a pack of FASCISTS!
I think I’ll drown my miseries with a nice can of Diet Sunkist and a couple of excellent movies. I’m thinking Support Your Local Sheriff (1969) with James Garner and Walter Brennan and Murder at the Gallop (1963) with Margaret Rutherford. I’ll probably fall asleep within the first 15 minutes, but what the hell ... it’s better than moaning about Donald Trump.

I’ve got a nice little collection of FREE FONTS for you today! My favorite is “Kulintina” because it looks really natural and hand-lettered. I like “Catedral Script,” too, and “Adentulisan” will be terrific for greeting card designs for The Howdygram Store. I’ll include download links below the graphic in case you want some of these for yourself. And please feel free to share them with your friends and neighbors, okay? Everybody loves free fonts!

Oy. All of a sudden we need a new garbage disposer because one of the blades broke off this morning, so we have a quick decision to make:
  • Sam can pick out a new disposer at Lowe’s and hire somebody there from the “contractor desk” to install it for us.
  • I can order a disposer from Amazon and pay an extra $94.95 to have it installed. Or ...
  • I’ll find out if our handyman (Gary) installs disposers and ask him for a quote. Gary’s prices are usually the lowest but there are always a couple of downsides: 1) he talks too much and it’s impossible to get him out of the house when he’s finished; and 2) he’s such a slob. Gary reminds me of Pig Pen from the Peanuts comic strip.
Please stay tuned for additional developments but feel free to continue your normal routine in the meantime. Thank you.

Early this morning I treated myself to a bunch of high resolution digital background patterns on Etsy. This was a real splurge for me ... five different collections (more than 175 digital images) for about $11.50. Two of these were part of a buy 2, get 1 free promotion ... I’m still waiting for the free ZIP file to show up in my email. I’ll probably use a lot of these to expand my collection of wedding-related products for The Howdygram Store. (Wedding products are my biggest sellers. Go figure.)

It’s time to join Sam in the family room now for movies and another nap because nobody deserves this more than we do. Stop laughing and please remember the Alamo.
