Heart Tubers

My life is in a bit of flux right now and I am trying to decide what if anything, to do with my "open to the public" blogs. I love blogging but for some reason I have no focus for any of them in the last 18 months. If I write how I feel, I end up getting hate mail. I kid you not. Horrible stuff that I delete because it's so hurtful to know how much people spew garbage-hate, bodily harm, stupidity. I prefer not to post them here (thus they are deleted under moderation) because they are reminders of how inhumane some people are. Some leave a real name! But most don't. Some are even from acquaintances far and wide. So I have quit. I have better things to do than stress over it, wondering how people get to be how they are. I have pretty much quit Facebook, too. I now just play a couple of games and move on. I may come back to FB someday but don't bet the farm on it.

I found this potato in the bag I purchased from Costco. I don't know if this was the "snake" transport, but I saved it to give to my nephew Arturo. Only problem is, I haven't seen him in a while and the tuber is sprouting. So here is the photo because the potato either needs to be cooked or added to the compost bin. At first I said it was a "Michigan" potato.

Many outsiders don't know that we Michiganders use our flat hands to show what part of the Lower Peninsula we are from. The UP itself is much like a running fox, so I imagine Yoopers have their own way of describing their home towns. As you can see from the photo below, I seem to find veggies in a common shape. I won't go into the X rated ones, however. They were chopped up for soup at one time or another.

So to counteract the hate mail, I decided that my tuber is a heart. My heart sends the best wishes to anyone reading this blog, my other blogs or my FB pages. The good vibes are emitting from the heart of the Midwest, the beautiful Great Lakes state of Michigan. Most of the people here have good hearts and wish the best to everyone even if it's not returned.

I will leave this blog up until the end of the year. If I don't find myself wanting or needing it, I will take it down. I retain the ownership of the title, so it's not for sale or trade. And no spam comments, please. They too, are deleted along with the tripe.
