We had more than a frisson of excitement last night with the barking dog and the storm. We were up most of the night trying to keep him calm. I’m going for heavier sedation next time, which might be later today.

Poor family too! Honestly, the next step is the citronella collar. We cannot sedate him early enough for it to take effect before storms arrive because they pop up so quickly this time of year. Also, a big leader branch came down from the redbud out front so my work for the day is to start cutting the tree down and digging it out this weekend.

Frisson?

We have too many stupid dog breeds now.

.

Just kidding. I have a frisson of hope that change will come in November.

The prospect of a Second Obama Regime evokes a frisson of terror in me, augmented by a soupçon of despair. 



Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

I have always thought of the word “soupçon” as a bit of dialogue from a Campbell’s commercial.

"Soup's on" as they say. My first wife and I had an interesting sleigh ride but one thing I must say about her is that she made an excellant vegetable soup from scratch - the woman was a wizard in the kitchen.

Feeling down ‘n’ dirty, feeling kinda mean
I’ve been from one to another extreme
This time I had a good time, ain’t got time to wait
I wanna stick around ‘till I can’t see straight

Fill my eyes with that double frisson
No disguise for that double frisson
Ooh, when it gets through to me, it’s always new to me
My double frisson gets the best of me

My grandson was shaking, a frisson
And next was my boy, and then me, son
We’re quaking with terror
A repeat of the error
Instead of Prez, we should try him for “trisson”

Much to the ill-concealed chagrin of the DNC, the MSM and Fifth Column fans everywhere, the abundant enthusiasm and overflow crowds at R&R rallies appear to be genuine hallmarks of an abiding love of limited government and a center-right citizenry finally shaking off their apathy, rather than the simple patriotic frisson the Left had been hoping for.

Saw an article about his Occidental application, it was damning.

Yet the left keeps harping about 10 more years of Romney's tax returns.

Mitt should make available photo copies of the bottom line--how much he paid in taxes each year, without revealing the corresponding total income. If the return shows he paid $2 million, for example, it means he paid more than the combined payments of 200 or so average people. And the public wouldn't find out if that $2 million was based on income of $5, $10, or even $50 million. And it would prove that Harry Reid is a liar, in case anyone needed proof.

Obama was hardly forthcoming about his Rezko dealings, yet he was elected. His Treas. Sec. cheated on his income taxes, yet got the job. And those losers want him to prove dirtyHarryReid isn’t lying? I could care less.

November may bring a frisson of hope, or a paroxysm of despair.

Is that bakery that refused the photo op w/JoeyB near you? I hear the Secret Service even went back to buy stuff at the bakery after they threw Joey out. Made me laugh. So did the pundit on tv. The “you didn’t build that” line will cause Obama lots more grief before this election is over.

Just the dog. I felt sorry for the family though since they could not sleep with all the barking. Once I know the dog is not in any real distress, I can sleep right through it. But the spouse looks exhausted this am.

Ever wonder where the term "No rest for the wicked" comes from? It comes from patriots whose constitutional ardor is more than mere republican frisson.

Bears repeating.
