Wake up you sleepyheads........that’s not more fire works that’s the sound of erasers being cleaned.
Here I am, don’t know where the rest of the lollygaggers are.
So that's why it's so hard to quit smoking! Those philter cigarettes have a love portion in them. Now BeechNut Long Cut Chewing Tobacco isn't like that.....when that deep brown juice stains the beard on your chin and your girl friend kicks over that coffee can sitting on the floor of the pick-up...no wimpy love portion philter smoke will be enough.
Say! To all you real men out there, Do I spit out my chaw before I kiss the old woman or after? You see, she prefers Workman's Plug over the long cut.
Bill Clinton has morals a-kilter
Made Hillary fear he might jilt ‘er
But they have stayed “together”
Through all kinds of weather
Perhaps she has slipped him a philter
Yesterday, I was at a beach in the greater Boston area
when I saw my first “Hillary in 2016” T-shirt, worn by
a quintessential Massachusetts lib. I almost lost my lunch.
I’ve seen a bumper sticker or two here. It’s def nausea-inducing.
The philter in my AC is dusty and the whole house needs cleaning. Oh, wait a minute. That’s not the philter you want. ;)
We need to send a little philter to Congress and let them know that we REALLY don’t want Obamacare.
A smiling face! Good morning.
ohh. yuck. A+++
I may dislike some t-shirts, but to make it criminal? What happened to free speech? Good thing they came to their senses.
She must be using more than a philter to keep Bill married to her, such as it is. At least there are no more blue dress scandals, he’s keeping his extracurricular antics quiet. A+++
Loved that song. A+++
I’m describing real people I’ve known and holding back on the details but not the truth of it.
LOL, I liked it better when I thought they were all make-believe.
Another successful “blow stuff up but not your fingers” day. We had a shower about 7 pm but an otherwise nice day. If you like sticky.
Then there was Jimmy the janitor who was actually twins (I never learned his brother's name, it might have been Jimmy too or Jimmy Two). The game was up when one of the Jimmys died of an overdose on the job and the other Jimmy didn't know it and showed up for work.(surprise, surprise!)
Or Slobbering John. He wasss interesting....yes indeed.
As I said yesterday, there are beer cans, wine cooler bottles and other trash beside the main trail in the woods-I didn’t bring a trash bag this morning, but tomorrow morning I will...
Now that the scandals abound
Obama is no longer so sainted-
To some avid koolaid drinkers
His image has become tainted
He must be out of philters
For his worshippers to savor-
No matter what he offers them
They no longer like the flavor
They took bread and circuses,
But some are thinking twice-
A spy on the phone-or maybe a drone
Has become the asking price...
LOL Excellent poem. A+++
Couldn’t have been conservatives in the woods, sound like you were invaded by liberals.
Thus, coffee philters result in the well-loved brew...
Rats, that’s what I was going to use as homework.
The cretins who tossed the trash were the partying kids of the summer people-it happens every summer, and the inconsiderate snobs of parents come in all political stripes, unfortunately...
Sorry for using both musical examples.
It’s been slow here today :D
The massage therapist i see is from Johnstown and if for all intents and purposes a yinzer. I spent an enjoyable hour under her ministrations talking about the ethnic foods of my childhood. She makes her own pierogies and halupky, poppyseed and nutrolls. Her brothers, sons and male cousins are heading to their annual week at the family fishing camp up in Tinesta. This may all sound inconsequential to you and very normal but recall that I’m in falls church VA having this conversation and its mind blowing to me. She knows about hunkies and Johnny bulls. Amazing ! She’s going to bring me recipes and I’m going to have Paula over one weekend and we will have a hunky cooking seminar.
I just heard the Zimmerman trial being discussed on Fox-that Martin’s mother was on t6he stand, etc-I’m pretty sure I saw something awhile back about Martin’s mother having sold mementos of “St.” Trayvon-also that his stepmother actually was the custodial mother in his life for a time? And wasn’t he staying with his dad because he’d gotten in some kind of trouble?
Maybe it is just me, but neither of those things sound like a sterling mom who recognizes her son’s voice yelling for help in a garbled, third party call...
WHOOOOOLE lotta revisionist history going on re; Treyvon. I heard his dad was going through and sanitizing facebook, twitter etc. of his thuggish past.
I do hope the defense points out at least some of the revisions, just because they show the dishonesty of the whole premise. It is probably too late for a sanitation crew on the twitter and other social media stuff-I’ll bet more than one souvenir collector has copied them...
Got the car packed and getting ready to go to the beach.
Taking the wife’s car cause it has more cargo space.
