Supremes: you can hurry love

Sorry, I couldn't resist. I won't go on about the US Supreme Court's decisions on Wednesday, which I'm obviously happy about. There is much reading to do now to follow and understand the practical implications of these historic rulings.

More grapevine tendrils. These are part of this year's new growth.

We had a beautifully sunny day yesterday. I got a load of chores done in the garden, but the list is still long. Today the overcast is back, but we are in a gradual warming trend and that's a good thing.

  5. My first thought: lovers entwined!
    after reading Tim's thought: totally agree! I just HAD to have those straws when I was a kid (wasn't it just yesterday?).

  6. Hopefully, this SCOTUS ruling will quicken the pace at which some "leaning" states will legalize same-sex marriage. Now if we could just get OBAMA to actually DO SOMETHING, we could see it legalized throughout the entire country. Of course, this isn't Europe or Asia or Africa or South America!

  7. Walt,

    The dominoes (the states that ban same sex marriage) will start to fall now. This will be fun to watch. All the whining about the "end to civilization as we know it." I've waited a long time for this. I've also waited a long time to refer to Bill as "my husband." I will enjoy this.

  8. Such good news, and congratulations all around. It was only about 15 years ago that marriage equality began emerging as a national issue, so by political standards the advancement has been lightning-fast. Now if we could get the Supremes to stop putting up barriers to universal voting -- gutting voting rights isn't a good thing.
