Appropriate that you would pick that, as I just arrived in Chicago.

In 3 short hours i will be on my way home.

I was all about getting up and going to the airport this morning.

Well, well, well-said she on the way out the door to the general store for food to eat for dinner...

Congress will be gone home
For the Easter holiday-
And that makes me happy,
Almost more than I can say

And Obama will play hooky
On a golf course I’m sure-
We may have one less speech
That is so hard to endure

The best part of this absence
Is the biggest in many ways-
They won’t spend our money
For at least a few days...

An unused hen house.

Today is also the Cubs home opener, I believe, so there’s that Bueller thing going for me too.

Looks like today’s sub was the truant, self-admitted! Sorry I was busy at work and had no time to open. Thanks for the thread, Ti!

They drained another 550 ml from chans belly last night. Poor little girl was waddling around it was so heavy. They said she weighed 18 lbs when she went in and left weighing 16.2 lbs. she’s happy and lighter on her feet. She was still leaking from her belly according to the Dogwalker so I called the vet and she said to clean her with peroxide, put an ice pack on her for 10 min and then put neosporin on the needle spot. Gave her a bath first and then did everything but the ice pack bc she would not sit for it.

Today was cleaning lady day, and she picks up all of their toys and puts them away nicely in the big Rubbermaid bin. As soon as chan gets in the room and sees the toy bin upright and closed she immediately agitates for it to be turned over so she can have access to it. She will sit there and scratch at it and look at you until you can’t stand it any longer.

If it’s being used then it’s not for very long. Or they are super anal about cleaning, which seems impossible.

Matthews, the fat pantload, would scarf whatever sandwich was being made. I still recall that greasy mop of hair under a ball cap early on Sat AMs at the regattas when Xsteen rowed crew with Caroline Matthews in HS. He routinely gorged.

So ole Louie Gohmert of TX is getting in trouble with Holder (getting himself in trouble with Holder, or getting Hodler in trouble ?) with the DOJ’s refusal to support the iRS scandal investigation.

I knew him while at Texas A&M, but he was two classes senior to me and in a different outfit. Didn’t have much contact with him then.

Were you not here 7 yrs or so ago? They were both freshman at the
all girls HS. Surely you heard the story of my going to the father-daughter breakfast with xsteen bc xshub was out of town and Chrissy was the speaker? I went up to him as he walked away from the gaggle of sycophant dads and said how I’d enjoyed hating him for many years, we had a nice chat it was prior to the 2004 election, he was supporting screaming dean at that point. And then there’s the time mild mannered xsteen brought in the catechism to refute his daughter’s claim that you can be prochoice and catholic.

Ok she graduated from Visitation in 2007, and this was freshman year early that fall of 2004. It’s one of my fave memories. I went with the express purpose of speaking to him. There was just one other mother (no dad in the family) and I. Her class had 112 and it’s not like everyone came but it was well attended. I needed him to know that not everyone in that room was in awe of him and that I had his #. He was taken aback but pleasant enough. I was seated with Xsteen,her best friend, and the best friend’s dad. And they are also conservative. We were probably the only four there. He was the featured guest speaker so I knew I’d have a chance.

I saw a replay of the exchange-Louie gave as good as he got and then some-I say he won that round...
