Good Morning Class. Welcome to School!

Here is my example with WFTD.

There is an utter lack of reason to be convivial these days.

No pushing at the door please!

Despite the gloom of current events, the classroom will be a convivial one today because my baby is celebrating her 20th bday. 20 years ago today, I laid in a birthing room with the OJ preliminary hearing going on on tv; the knife was in the envelope being bandied about.

My kids are going up to a family reunion for the family on their moms side. I’m sure some of it will be fun, but overall, a less than convivial atmosphere. So glad I don’t do that crap with them anymore.

It’s in a campground, few of them can afford a hotel.

Obama tries acting convivial
With speeches on subjects so trivial
Women’s right to free pills
After sexual thrills
Immigration? He’s steadfastly “oblivial”

Convened convivial carnival of crytocommunists
celebrating completed carnage.


"Mission accomplished. Waygu, rials, pesos and new voters for us.
"Swine fever, tuberculosis, and forced quartering for them."

Ugh. Need coffee to be more convivial.
Then again, if the illegal aliens keep coming in sick with TB, scabies, and pneumonia, syphilis, and lice, we will perpetually have conviral-infestations in our southern jails.

Which is why, of course, Obama wants them released from jail as soon as possible.

"I have no teens left! that is mindboggling to me."

Growing older is a trivial accomplishment. The challenge for us now will be to figure out how to grow younger.

Well, not growing older while growing younger without growing wider at least.

(But my high school blue jeans still fit as painting pants at least. Worn out a bit of course, but St Ronnie has made me replace my old shirts over the years though as the collars wear through.)

When it comes to being convinial I am pro Vino al Vino.

From the vintner’s union of Panzano site: From a small winefestival once a year we have become a group working strongly with sustainable winegrowing & winemaking, quality control and a wide exchange of experiences. Come and visit us on the third weekend in september every year for the winefestival VINO AL VINO or one of our many other meetings during the year at the individual wineries.

We’re going to go to Journey Behind the Falls this morning. Rain is supposed to come after lunch, so we’re heading out soon. Hope it’s not too long of a wait. We couldn’t find any way to make reservations online.

The Cloward-Piven on the border will not bode well for a convivial atmosphere in the country.

Sadly, I’m finding it harder and harder to have a convivial attitude, especially in dealing with those on the hard left.

I am with you. Personally, this is a very fun time in our family’s life, with our eldest daughter getting married etc. but on the whole, the situation our country finds itself in at the hands of the leftists is extremely dire, IMO.

The first person to go over and survive was a woman — and she took her cat with her in the barrel. Now, that’s just crazy.

Happy birthday to your baby!

In the midst of this insanity
People are actually learning-
I guess they noticed the fire
When their world began burning

Better late than never I say,
Let’s be convivial and rejoice-
Illegals dumped on the doorsteps
Made so many find their voice

I don’t care how it happened-
I’m just glad more NIMBYs see
Obama’s minions think of them
As no different from you or me...
