I need to get to the park and get the run done early before it gets hotter and I risk going febrile.

That was a gross story, BTW. The comments were pretty bad too. I feel sorry for people who think this is a good thing.

I know, it was shocking to me. The father sounds gay himself, but there’s no way to tell from the article. The comments were really sad.

aha! I am so disoriented this AM. I copied the ping list but must have gotten distracted before pasting it into a post.

Hope everyone had a good Father’s day yesterday. It was kind of eclipsed by our niece’s wedding this weekend, as was Mother’s Day by xsboy’s graduation last month.

I would welcome “febrile” this AM, it’s been so cold here in recent days. It’s supposed to be 80 this afternoon, but not until AFTER a moriing of T storms.

Chelsea must have been suffering a febrile attack when she thought up this outfit to wear at a Conservation Fund gala.

Chelsea Clinton is one fashionable mama-to-be

I thought it was the IRS that lost them, but regardless, it is an outrage and NO ONE can possibly think it’s legit. A++++
