A special word for a special student......NicknamedBob gets his own special day to shine!
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.
Much bobbery currently underway re: Cain & his actions and much unknown about his short term political future.
Hmm.....let's ask Robt....he'll know.
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!
I am through with Herman Cain......sad, but true. Our affair has ended before it even began.
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.
I am feeling the McCain redux bubbling up....losing interest fast.
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.
LMAO A+++ Highest grade so far today!
If you’re going with “nuthin” does the spelling of “alack” really matter? ;-)
You've never seen one of these?
Yes, I have. I own a sewing machine. Just want to give all my students a chance to chime in. I will call you, too.
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
Bravo! Bravo! A+++
is the weather nippy over there? we had frost on the ground and a definite chill in the air this morning.
The One winked and smiled
While Corzine committed robbery.
He was too busy with Reggie
The two committing fobbery.
LOL........they are ALL committing robbery....and a lot of fobbery goes on as well.
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.
Aren’t you sweet.
Bobbin Robbin, Now Throbbin, Sobbin.
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...
That made me laugh
does it do embroidery as well? If so, I want one.
is that porn? LMAO A+
This one’s for you.
wait, I take back your grade, you didn’t use today’s word at all. LOL
This cracked me up
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!
has he turned out to be a NAbob? or did the nattering nabobs of negativism get him down?
I am trying to decipher what is going on with Gloria Cain today. I am confused.
I thought a bobbery was a special aviary for bobolinks.
Here ya go...
In Vegas one arm slottery and tickets worthless lottery, no money left for cute blond hottery or Strip bright lit bobbery, I opt for pawnshop robbery,
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.
What happens in Vegas, SHOULD stay in Vegas....LOL
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.
Good to hear a different opinion.
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.
I finished my latest antibiotic for my sinus infection and already it is throbbing again. I go back to my doc this afternoon. I am getting depressed about all this.
i am about to leave to get xsjr from school for the drive up to Pittsburgh for the Freedom concert. i will tell Seanny that yinz say hi ; )
OH.......if you can give him a smooch! Go for it.
Could you add me to your ping list? Thank you.
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.
Will do. Welcome to class!
Doggerel, it’s not just for dogs anymore.
