Better late than never. Sorry, I got busy with dealing with my knee and forgot what day it was. I am here now.
“Mmmm, I love chocolate eclats”, said Obama.
“Just wait, cried Kevmo, eclats will be the power source
of the future”.
That was a brilliant idea! Bringing well-lit french pastries to class on a friday. What an eclair!
How is the rehab going?
Michelle Obama sees herself
As stylish but is just éclat-
Loudly colored, ugly clothing
To hide that her butt is fat
A few too many French fries
Go into her always-open mouth
As she tells us what to eat
From Canadian border to South
She should eat that food herself-
Go hike with granola in a pouch-
Instead, she wears dresses that
Look like someone killed a couch...
It is overcast, still and sultry-getting ready to rain again, like it did last night, I hope...
“well-lit french pastries”
Are they made with lots of brandy or cognac?
I love chocolate eclats.
constipated? try eclat!
Warren is dangerously stupid-so I can only assume anyone who buys into her lala land nonsense has the IQ of an artichoke-not even intelligent enough to be an Obama voter...
Glad to see you up and feeling better! At least I HOPE that is the case!
Your poem reminded me of a video I watched the other day - about how they had PROOF that mooshell is a man~ The very first thing they said was only men had a ring finger longer than their pointer finger....absolute proof that she is male. So I’m here to announce, today, that I must be male because my ring finger is slightly longer than my pointer finger. And since I adore my husband that must mean I’m gay too.
My ring fingers on both hands are longer, too. I’ve always enjoyed being one of the guys-now I know why...
What are those in the video basing their opinion on, anyway?
I try not to cuss on line but have to say this bastard is going to get us into a World War with Russia!
The authors are no doubt convinced she is a guy, but I don’t think so-my shoulders are wide-18 inches or so-and I have been told I have masculine arms, but I have done physical work for years and like physical activities, and that is bound to make a mark on my appearance. And take it from someone who has no boobs or hips to speak of-all that junk in the first grifter’s trunk does not belong to a guy...
I don’t really think he is able to get us into WWIII all by himself-thank God-if he did, the first thing that could happen would be that the generals might relieve him of command as CIC for incompetence-and that might not be so bad, after all...
A lot of the older Generals have retired or been replaced - a lot of the current leadership in the military are his boys...lots of things have been happening behind the scenes but former military guys are very concerned
So are a lot of the active ones-and even the dumbest generals whose loyalty has been purchased have learned proper military strategy-it isn’t good to piss off the troops-just ask the Romans about that...
A++ they are yummy
Now I am craving an Sinclair.
A++ the clueless left. Rme
A+++ My leg swelled up today and aches. It did get me another week of at home pt.
A+++ The left’s women are such losers.
Do you think you might have been overdoing it a little?
Ow! That is probably the most disappointing thing to happen to a body part you need for ambulation-I hope it gets better quickly.
Thank you! The rain is a steady drizzle-much nicer than a storm that pummels and knocks stuff down, and the water doesn’t even sink in to do any good...
Dang kindle and it’s auto correct.
No. This is normal. Just counted the years I have been on furosemide. 26.
I have been watching Fixer Upper on HGTV a lot. I now picture you looking like Joanna Gaines.
Perhaps you should own some stock in the company.
I’ve only seen the show a couple of times-but I’m not young and pretty like she is, and my hair is red...
She’s far better preserved. Xshub knows her personally and says she looks far younger than her age. She’s still a raving leftist, though.
When I was walking this morning, I heard a commotion up the trail, so I ran up there to have a look. There is a neighbor whose goats get out and walk up and down the road, eating grass along the way-they don’t usually bother anything-today they wandered onto a property where there is a donkey in the yard.
There was a clothesline with clothes on it in the yard, and the goats were having a great time tilting at the clothes and pulling them off the line, while the donkey went nuts braying and chasing them around-clothes were being tossed everywhere, and two other hikers were watching and laughing hysterically. I’d have liked to have been within hearing when the people who live there saw that mess...
