The liberal left is lugubriuos over the fact that Rush Limbaugh won an award for writing a children's book. Much ado about reviewing a book one hasn't read. Love the comments at the site. Liberal lunacy expounds. Common sense is missing.

That Mooch-elle lives the good life, luxurious
Hawaiian vacations
With no complications
While the unemployed sulk, lugubrious

Today's cookie selection will be cannoli cookies. not to be confused with actual cannoli. This is a round plain white glazed cookie. I've never made them but like the others on this site have had them from an Italian deli. They are fantastic.

I first heard this word used in a play by Moliere called “The Misanthrope.” I wonder whether one must be a drama queen to speak in a lugubrious tone.

I imagine the Rams are rethinking their ground breaking decision to be the first inclusive team in the NFL with the Michael Sam draft pick. But the Gay Lobby and their angry lesbian sisters, The Media, will be watching every word uttered by anyone associated with the Rams.

What words do you think will get them slammed or possibly fined this year? Sissy, pansy, "you play like a girl"...

Are there enough Gays/Lessies to fill the stands of their stadium? Hope so, or they will lose money on this venture into Gaydom. I suspect the country is quickly reaching the saturation point for girlyness.

It is sunny and 67 here-it was 47 this morning at 6...

If schadenfreude is bad
I’m as bad as that gets
Watching Obama’s minions
Bitten by their media pets

They all become lugubrious
Whenever they’re set down
They howl discrimination
And threaten to leave town

So let’s make them happy
That won’t be hard to do-
Get them fired and sent home
Make their dreams come true...

Still pouring here. I am dog sitting my neighbor’s dog Cooper, another shih tzu. The cat had gotten out before they left and was at the door soaking wet waiting for it to open. She was in like a flash. If it wasn’t raining, I would have brought him over.

Thank you!

Last night, Husky girl and I startled several deer that found a way around the fence at the back of the property and were browsing up here in the yard. They freaked at the dog barking and lunging at them, nearly dragging me off with her on the leash, and were running around so frantically that I took Husky girl up the back steps to the deck and we waited there until the deer remembered where they had gotten in, and headed back to the riverbank.

I’m going down there later to find that gap in the fence and see if I can patch it-I do not want my veggies and herbs to be deer chow-I can barter those herbs, I already spend money to buy deer food for them, and there is plenty of grass down by the river...

Good idea, I hope you can block their entry.

I was out running errands early the other morning when I had to stop on a two lane highway, just where it goes up to 55. At least 7 deer had started across the road, not all made it, but they kept going both ways in front of me and a car coming from the other direction. We sat there waiting for them to decide where they were headed and to all finally leave. They went back up the hill and away from traffic after several confused minutes. A delightful interlude for me.
