Limn. A citrus fruit like lemn. Not quite the same so it could be called sub-limn-al.

The America Obama did limn
In Osawatomie, was imagined by him
“Free markets don’t work!”
Proclaimed this smug, clueless jerk
His re-election chance heading towards “slim”

it involves boxes of stove top stuffing [suthreners use cornbread, but being a yankee, i use traditional stuffing mix] 2 jars of chicken gravy, 2 cups of chicken breast, either baked or rotisserie, one largish can of cream of chicken soup and then you do a soup can full of milk for additional liquid. Whyisa has you mixing up the stuffing on the stove, but i just dumped the various ingredients in the slow cooker and just mixed it very thoroughly to make sure there was no dry stuffing mix at the bottom. i cooked it through in the oven last night and brought it in with the slow cooker heating element and have it plugged in my ofc.

I am reading the Pecksniffian BORe’s book on Killing Lincoln on my kindle. It will be the last book as I am mailing it to my son on the west coast who will read all the books I have stored up. I am getting a new version that will allow me to post on FR and keep up with the peculations of theO’s gang of thieves. I am having ephemeral dreams of the color screen. I hope I have done an operose job of limning all of the last weeks words.

They’ve added a line to the state income tax form for this coming year that says, basically, “How much do you owe us for sales tax on stuff you bought on the internet?”

It’s expected that most people will ignore it until some poor example suckers get raked over the coals.

They call it “use” tax. Like I owe the state anything for the privilege of “using” stuff I bought.
