Insanity of 2017



This new year is only 11 days old and already I am pretty sure it will be the year of Insanity.

Folks are going insane over the new president-elect and his pick of cabinet members, staffers, his hair style and fake bake tan, and more issues than I care to comment about.

Celebrities are using their allotted time at award shows to voice their opinions of how America is going to end up in the toilet instead of thanking the organizations and people who helped them get to the award in the first place.

But the absolute craziest thing I have heard in these past 11 days of 2017 is that Jenna Bush Hager DELIBERATELY melded two top motion pictures staring African Americans in to one movie “cause all civil rights movies are the same”.


To mess up two movie titles….”Hidden Figures” and “Fences” into “Hidden Fences” when congratulating Pharrell for being nominated, is so not a major catastrophic event!  Michael Keaton also called Hidden Figures “Hidden Fences” when presenting the award for best actress but where is the backlash for him.  Or what about Al Roker calling Jessica Biel, “Jessica Alba” but his mistake was reshot so the audience did not see his gaff.

Seriously folks?   Has it come to this?  That we are so thin-skinned that a simple mistake can make national news if not global news?  Is there not enough real news to keep us entertained?  Or have we become social buzzards, circling one another just waiting for an opportunity to present itself so we can swoop down and start ripping the flesh off of our fellow man?

I fear for humanity and not because of any politician or government policy.  I fear for humanity because of the lack of common sense we are exhibiting.  The hatred I see all around this world for our fellow humans is at a demonic level.

God save us from ourselves,

Your heartbroken Queen


About thelumberjackandthegypsy

The lumberjack is my husband and he owns Arrowhead Wood Products; Arrowhead Toboggan and Snowshoe; and Lake Superior Furniture Co. and is the exclusive manufacturer of wood shutters for Summit Hill Shutter Co. The gypsy is me, and I have a passion for teaching people to tap into their creative side, even when they think they don't have one! I did not grow up creative or artsy and I was in my thirties before I started sewing and creating things. I am a rug hooker; artisan teddy bear maker; painter (from pictures to large pieces of furniture!); knitter; doll maker; needle-felter, repurposer; sewer; decorator; blogger; glamper; reader; vintage jewelry maker; junker; and now a shop owner. But the lumberjack and I feel our greatest gifts in this world are our four grandkids and our daughter and her husband and our relationship with Jesus Christ. We have been married for more than 33 years and most of that time we have lived out in the country on a hobby farm where we have raised chickens, turkeys, ducks, goats, pigs and beef cattle. We also homeschooled our only child for her entire school years. We lived out our dream of being like the The Little House on the Prairie and they were great times. I also have a personal blog: where I tell stories of what life on the farm has been like and other things that pop up in my very weird mind. I prefer "quirky or eccentric" instead of weird (sounds more fascinating and less creepy)!
