Thieves caused a bobbery when they stole the electrical wires lighting up a non-profit Christmas display. Proceeds from the display in a park were diminished when they had to replace $2500 in electrical cords.

Were it not for the bobbery of Congress, its approval rating would be in the negative.

I thought bobbery was when you stole the little spool of thread in the bottom of a sewing machine.

Barney Frank’s bobbery caught up with him!!! I am hoping more of them get caught up in it. Or was that fobbery? Hmm.

A+

Much bobbery currently underway re: Cain & his actions and much unknown about his short term political future.

morning tioga and all of you who visit. My thanks to the morning posters who rotate responsibility.

Been doing Words for Friends on both Facebook & my iPhone. A little tool aimed at keeping the grey brain cells hopping around productively

I drop in and lurk on occasion & always enjoy the clever minds when I do.

Happy Christmas season to you all!

Bobbery? Is that when the British policemen commit a crime? Like a bobby-robbery?

I think it’s the foolishness that prevents the English cops from carrying guns....bobbery.....when the hoodloms are armed and the cops aren’t.

Sigh. Me too. I was really feeling hopeful with Cain, I thought that this country really needed someone with CEO experience to help revitalize the economy by ditching the stupid over regulation. Alas, alak (alack?), I am left with nuthin. The choices that remain are completely unpalatable to me.

"NicknamedBob gets his own special day to shine!"

I'm predicting disappointment.

I'm accustomed to government bobbery,
Their tradition of arcane cobbery,
But to balance what's spent,
They take money that's lent,
And funding is highway robbery.

Obama supporters get slobbery
There is qvelling and fainting and bobbery
They think he is The One
But he’s being undone
By incompetence, smugness and snobbery

The frost is definitely on the pumpkin. MrsTruth had a 9 a.m. doctor’s appointment (checkup) and I, being the early riser, was nice enough to start her car so that she’d be toasty and warm for the five minute trip.

I own a sewing machine too - in fact I would have been naked in college without the ability to sew my own clothes! Back then fabric wasn't expensive -

My daughter has asked for her own sewing machine for Christmas and it is wrapped and ready to go. The odd thing is that I paid $99 for just a simple Singer machine in 1978 and it still does the same four things. lol Her machine is all electronic - 60 stitches, auto load, etc - not much more than what I paid 35 years ago...

No, the ones that have that capability are much more expensive, but some of the stitches could work as decorative detail work - I like the auto thread feature!

Caught, Cuffed with time aplenty for my hobbery, think I of walls concrete daubery, auto plate jobbery, sodden I grow slobbery, Fem’ judge looks replete with snobbery, Of cute little blond she is mommery. I’m guilty, forget the legal lobbery.

I have no idea what is going on. He is starting to act mighty guilty. I think this wouldn’t matter if he had been awesome with his foreign policy stuff....but that was the beginning of the end, and now this is really just the death knell. I don’t know if he is a player, but he isn’t acting innocent.

I don’t think he’s guilty of anything except trying to help someone with a sob story. I don’t want the media to run him out. If he doesn’t win the primary, fine, but I don’t want the yammering nabobs of nitwittery to do it. They couldn’t even vet the miserable failures in office right now and still refuse to do their homework on them. Hang in there Herman.

all of the supposed victims are beyond sketchy, but his reaction to this last one, the NON-denial statement made originally by his atty, and the sheer # of accusers does give me pause.

He’s not a politician so I won’t hold that against him. There has been ZERO PROOF of any of the claims made against him so I don’t want the drip-drip-drip factor of media repetition incriminating him. All of these so-called victims have reputations for slinging false claims and doing whatever it takes for a buck.
