I hear Vast got caught up in his towel this morning...so I am coming to his rescue.I know it’s almost noon, but I expect homework on my desk and I can be bribed with Christmas goodies and/or boozy holiday drinks. Let’s have a party!

During an Obama recitation
The audience goes thru oscitation.
In fact, he’s so boring
To rouse some from snoring
Requires emergency resuscitation...

No changes have yet to be viewed among the wailing class during North Koreas funeral procedures for Kim Jong-il. Any Oscitation could be a sign of changes implemented by the new regime

I don’t hold out much hope for the people of North Korea. They need to help themselves, but when you are starving to death, not much you can do.

Concur - I expect if anything is going to change there it will entail the NK military turning on their handlers. Until then I will need to hold my own oscitation in check.

The three stages of dealing with Bill Maher, first it is agitation, then oscitation and then is resignation. Just ignore him and don't give that punk publicity.

After hours of rare hesitation
We get today’s word: Oscitation
It means yawning, like a Hawkeye
At the Iowa caucii
Feeling boredom and alienation

Slackers??!! Hmmm, I may resemble that remark

The Montana Recall Act stipulates that officials including US senators can only be recalled for physical or mental lack of fitness, incompetence, violation of the oath of office, official misconduct, or conviction of a felony offense. We the undersigned call for a recall election to be held for Senator Max S. Baucus [and Senator Jonathan Tester] and charge that he has violated his oath of office, to protect and defend the United States Constitution.

Thank heavens that someone is paying attention to the lunacy and oscitating activities of their elected officials. Montanans Launch Recall of Senators Who Approved NDAA Military Detention

Hey, Stranger, hope your Christmas was merry. I was just at the grocery store thinking of you as I bought some butter flavored crisco baking sticks that is all measured out. I was grinning, thinking about how you turned me on to those little babies. Now I can’t live without them. Was looking at your bread recipe this morning, too.

Back from doing an estimate I didn’t expect to do till next week-luckily (I hope) the customer came home from visiting relatives early- she was afraid they’d get stuck at the airport in Denver in a crushing crowd if they waited until Friday-

As we watch Obama frolic in Hawaii
It mostly invites oscitation-
But just then you begin to wish
He’d extend his latest vacation

When he is on a tropical island
Soaking up that warm Pacific sun
By his own admission he’s “lazy”
Golfing and having so much fun

Too busy loafing to be meddling-
So at least for that little while
That he’s fixated on enjoyment
We might all breathe easy and smile

I couldn’t live without those Crisco sticks! Poor hubby was terrified he bought the wrong ones 2 weeks ago when I added them to his list, he bought the regular not butter because I only wrote Crisco sticks. Silly wabbit, I would have told him if I wanted the butter ones :)

Christmas was merry, but very nice and quiet, just the 3 of us. Hope your was just as merry!

Oh, and as you mentioned in post #23, you’re right, we not sheep and we are armed. And Santa added to the armament this year by stopping by Ruger before visiting me :)

I thought you were armed-are you going to get a pistol? My .38 police special was given to me at age 15 by my dad and is close to me at all times. I have a .357 too, but the little .38 is by far my preferred self defense weapon-I would recommend it as a good weapon for a woman.

I’ve never be unarmed, just didn’t have a handgun. I’ve only fired a few rounds from it and so I can’t make an informed decision yet as to whether or not I need something smaller. I was probably not much older than Jax the last time I fired a handgun.

Heck, Jax is a better shot with a long gun than I am, but she has more more practice. We’re joining the sportsman’s club that has the range where the 4H Shooter’s Club meets every month. She’s been a member of that for 3 years.

I traded a target pistol that belonged to the late Mr T5 to my brother for a 12 gauge pump shotgun awhile back, and I had the chance to try out its deterrent effect last summer on some trespassers walking on the deer trail below the fence looking for a place to fish and get stoned. I yelled get off my property from the deck twice and when I got no response, I just pumped the shotgun-the results were instant-running feet and yells of “Oh s***!” all the way to their truck hidden in the underbrush...

Good for Jax! Always best to teach kids gun use and safety young, no matter what squeamish people say. My daughter belonged to the rifle club in high school, and she was dead on with the 6mm rifle hubby and I gave her for hunting. I haven’t fired my 270 deer rifle in over a year-I don’t have a place to hunt right now anyway...

She loves it, and Charlie instilled in her the safety of use long before she even joined. I was taught gun safety long before I ever even fired one because my father was a cop and so there was a handgun in the house at all times. He and my grandfather, also a retired cop and an avid hunter, taught my brother and I how to shoot properly.

As I said, I only fired a few rounds from the 9mil, I’ll take it out a few more times before Charlie decides I need to level down to a .380. LOL

Well, I was company secretary and traded down. I was, also, fireboard rep which meant another meeting each month. I recruited someone to take that slot. My husband knew I would do the secretary thing, but wanted out. He is still president for another year, that’s what he gets for letting me go meet Vast and not coming with me. He did show up after the meeting and got to meet him.
