Rise and shine! Get to work, someone has to pay for Obamacare and there are too many to count waiting for you to do it.

Class is open. Apples on my desk, homework on the board and does anyone know where the key to the closet is?

In basic training, where we learned how to salute properly, the curved hand that Kerry features would bring a response of “Are you searching for Indians?” from our sergeants.

Yep! Our whole company would be doing pushups until our hands were flat enough to take another stab at saluting properly.

I heard on the radio yesterday that the invites for Micheles bday party specify that you should eat before the party cause they ain’t feeding you.

Cause Obama can’t stick the taxpayers with the bill for this one.

When Obama opens his mouth
He tergiversates once more-
As ‘rats up for re-election
Scurry for the nearest door

They avoid being seen with him,
Afraid he’ll “help” them lose
Their precarious positions
As he tries on Nixon’s shoes

The irony of that footwear
Is that it was made to fit
Any politician who wears it
As he is stepping into s***...

Took a break from figuring invoices, got up from the chair at the computer, turned on the TV to get some news-and saw Huckabee scolding people who say “rino” and saying what a great candidate Jeb Bush would be-turned off TV, sat down at the computer again-when I break again in awhile, I’ll leave the TV alone and go hike along the river instead-the creatures in the woods make more sense...

So the permanent crown broke before it was permanently cemented in. Today they had me come back to make a new mold because they did not want to merely repair the crown and put it in. They want to make it out of something harder so that it won’t break on my again. Today I needed Novocaine to make a new mold. 3 more weeks till it’s done. RME It’s a dang saga. What will go wrong next. I am on my second temporary, as the last one broke. I am thinking since they pulled this temp out and put it back in today that now it won’t last 3 more weeks. I am ready to scream. It’s gonna hurt when the Novocaine wears off, too.

That is just cruel and unusual punishment. I have decay under a crown that I need to force myself to have taken care of before it reaches root canal stage. I feel for you.

Just came back from my neighbor’s. The husband is on a feeding tube and oxygen. The wife had bladder cancer surgery Wednesday...all good news from there. Today the cat was wailing. Cat has failing kidneys and now diagnosed today with diabetes. The diets for the two diseases contradict each other. Cat gets routine shots and IV fluids, now needs two shots a day for diabetes. Vet advised they let the cat go, and they will do so tomorrow. They are spending one last evening with her. Her name is Sophie. The drama was too much for me, I scooted home.

To say Obama tergiversates is practically an understatement ... He's a master of equivocation, shifting between opposing sides of an issue with impunity; his constant policy "adjustments" & retreats give no indication of his having ANY core principles. He claims to be working towards certain goals, only to have the target revised on a whim without taking responsibility at all for the changes. One minute, he's the serious "State Griever" -- the next, he's clowning for the camera in a "Selfie." Publicly, he holds the military in high regard, but to his select group a Vet registers very little, if not held in outright contempt.

Had to run the youngest to driving school this morning and she was late, as I reminded her on the ride over there. I woke her in plenty of time but then she decided she needed a shower. Teenagers seem incapable of showers that last less than 20 minutes. Then she had THE NERVE to slam the door when she got out, which annoys me to no end. It was all I could do NOT to go into the classroom and yank her out by her hair and tell her to get back out there and close the door correctly. She will hear about it later. Now I have to fill a tire on the other child’s vehicle, which looks a little low to me.

Omg. I go thru that daily. The boys ar incorrigable, in showertimes, and the oldest slams doors, so much that the side panel in the van had to be repaired, and I am constantly fixing the moulding on the back door.
