Practice makes perfect.....post on....
OK, saw pics and all, but I don’t know. I will ask her later, still too early to text her. A friend of hers has a condo time share and the grounds look lovely. Will FReepmail you about something.
According to news reports, Weiner is a stay-at-home dad.
Next question—is the baby Jewish, muslim, or “nuttin’ “?
he has a prickly personality
You need to go back to Logic 101. ;-)
Cool, I am also J. My husband was working on a project in Hawaii last summer and routinely got calls and texts at 3am since his co-workers couldn’t seem to realize it was 3am in Hawaii when they were at work! He finally just gave up and would work half way through the night/morning. He has never required much sleep anyway.
what? you posting from a roller coaster? from the mouth of a gator, or what?
Back home tomorrow, where everyone is normal and speaks English.
Listening to teens in the pool the other day speaking french? It all sounds so lyrical. It’s only knowing the content that makes it trite and banal.
it’s good that Sarah’s horizons have been broadened. there’s more to the world than western PA where everyone is white and speaks english ; ) if yinz can call pittsburghese ‘at?
good riddance to bad rubbish... ; )
There’s a WaWa here at the entrance to Sea World.
No, just looking at more animals that aren’t on my plate. ;-)
It’s just another thing when its done by the fedgov, even indirectly, especially during a depression.
Have an “italian” hoagie for us!
on this thread? I don’t remember.
I’m sure you have eaten your share of them! My nephew and niece are driving down from Ohio, should be here by the time i get home from work. Will be nice to have the cousins visiting. going to grill some marinated shrimp and vegetables. did some over the weekend and it was GOOD.
Congrats on your FIL’s turn-around. Now would be a good time to get his affairs in order, such as wills, trusts, long term care options, etc. Not that my husband and I have dones that for ourselves, but that is what we are going through with my mom. It’s a pain.
my husband and i are both lawyers, his dad is set in that regard.
The one with water on all sides silly.
Not as good as if I had cooked it ; )
Better Call Saul.
(My MIL is 94 (lives with us), still drives to daily mass every day Oy Vey!)
Heat index 105 now. I hope they learn how to keep the Metro running next week.
We had a storm last evening that brought 2 inches of rain, and there may be more later today-yippee! In one of the beds in the side yard, there are 8 little pink rain lily plants getting ready to bloom-I will cut the flowers and some decorative native grass for a bouquet for the kitchen island...
Without his umbilical teleprompter
Obama puts his foot in his mouth-
Such as his latest inimical words
That send his credibility south
He’s scolding the business owners-
Even the ones who are very small
Didn’t open that shop themselves-
Government did it, after all
It happened because of public works
And now you must repay them in tax-
What the hell has he been smoking
And where is he getting his “facts”?
no promises on the Metro, it’s been problematic,apparently.
those are hilarious. dang i love Weiner! we need WAYYYY more weiner!
excellent, A++++! good on the rain. and yes i saw that he said something LUDICROUS about businesses not being created by their owners. he is so beyond clueless.
Titus was asleep on the windowsill, but the minute the Midget girl jumped up onto the top of the computer cabinet, he hopped onto my lap, started purring and is staring at her as if to say, one bad look in my direction and I’ll kick your ass. She knows his Freightliner persian form and legs are too short to jump up there, so she is just washing her face and pointedly ignoring him.
Heck, while I am fantasizing how about Laura Ingraham for SCOTUS.
Thank you! Ooooh-I just don’t know how I’d ever have put tile on a customer’s wall without all the new highways-especially since I use farm roads to get to them-highways are miles away (thank God). Most of the businesses here don’t want infrastructure/highways, etc-the more rustic it is, the more tourists come and spend money (in better times, that is)...
Some folks are inimical to the Grim Reaper:
I will be depressed with you, if it is not Rubio-while he may not be the most experienced, he is smart, knows what hard work is and he isn’t afraid to go on the attack, if needed. The other choices might as well be carrying a calculator and cell phone around-boring. And it is not just because he is hispanic, although it does give him an edge on those issues, too.
The rest of them might as well be invisible they are nonentities. And yes Hispanic is exactly what we need to generate some enthusiasm. The rest of them are soporifics!!
A+++ our grimmy is not inimical !
I was discussing the VP thing with a neighbor over the weekend-we were both hiking the same trail Saturday morning. She asked what I thought of Daniels, and I told her he was probably as effective as Ambien-she gave me a say-what look, so I said boring, and she said oh, you are right. I convinced her that Rubio was a much better choice.
Is anyone watching Cavuto? I just heard him fire off the words “hard” and “stiff” in referring to mayor-wanna-be Weiner-does any city need a mayor who is the-um, butt-of so many jokes...
I don’t know how he got through that piece with a straight face. My youngest was sitting on the couch, reading, and perked up saying WHAT did he say??
we’d all love to see Rubio give more speeches, but as a surrogate.
Leaving the Senate to be Veep would hurt the Country longterm, because he will be President someday.
There perhaps won’t be much of a country left to preside over if he isn’t on the ticket to boost romneys chances. The other potential candidates are woefully bland and nondescript.
And Daniels is a dang midget! Besides the wife has some nefarious past that won’t permit him to run. She left him and the kids and ran off to California for awhile.
Mars has an atmosphere inimical to life.
"Obama" has an attitude inimical to the Constitution's health.
You have FRmail with a tough but nifty (and perhaps previously unposted) word I ran across today. :)
Darling, you know I love you but...
JOE FUCKING BIDEN is vice president of the United States.
We don;t need Dick Fosbury to clear that bar.
(Stop me before I sub reference again)
I confess. AND APOLOGIZE...LOL
Im doing it there, I think we should do it here..
Every day, one quote from the Won.
(A note...my computer has shut itself down....twice ; )
Rubio - because FReepers haven’t obsessed about natural born citizen enough.
well i know they’d have a conniption over the natural born citizen crap, but they are a fringe minority are they not? the populace at large is not going to fixate on that crap. i know hobbes thinks we have a stone cold lock on this election, and that it isn’t necessary to have a draw such as rubio, but i am not convinced. i think we are tempting fate by selecting these vanilla whitebread boring white dudes [pawlenty, portman, thune, and Mitch Daniels from MIDGETVILLE]. MAYBE paul ryan could be ok, but the rest of that slate of nobodies, i just don’t think is going to elicit enough excitement. and no jindal won’t do it either though he’s more chocolate than vanilla, and more cajun gumbo than whitebread.
