Humpitty Hap Day from still-Ebola-free Larryville, GN!

One of our former county commissioners -- who was accused of taking a $1M bribe to help grease the skids for a developer -- got a pretty damned sweet plea deal yesterday: a $10K fine and a decade of probation. In some regards, Gwinnett County is like Cuyahoga County with somewhat better BBQ and manners.

I see the Gaza ceasefire is still in effect and wonder what the Hamassholes are really getting up to.

Enjoyed this piece by James Lileks mocking leftie foodies:

It’s a fine summer day, kind and blue. What shall I feel guilty about today? I know! Breakfast.

I had raisin bran. Wonderful, nutritious, unsustainable raisin bran. It was an old box, so most of the plump, unsustainable raisins had moved to the bottom. I also had sliced bananas, to indicate my complicity in global despoliation; juice from oranges whose existence should make me grey with shame; and milk saturated with the moral turpitude of immoral farm practices. And yet I ate it all, washed down with coffee that should have had UNFAIR TRADE stamped on the package, with a picture of Juan Valdez bent under a foreman’s whip.

As teh perfesser likes to say, “read the whole thing”; BBL.

Update: Screwed teh pooch on the link; it is now fixed.

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE!

Greetings from sublime Bountiful.

I sure do hope y’all have a super duper day, ’cause you just know I will.

BTW, I’m still waiting on the biopsy results. Nine days and counting. You’d think that some gub’mint functionary was processing them.

Oh, wait, they are!

I thought I’d share a couple of pretty pictures of my niece sent to me today by my sister. As you can see, my niece gets her looks from ‘ol Jerry, not that old crone of a sister.

This was 12 years ago at her wedding:

She had a photo spread done for her husband on their 10 anniversary. She still fit in her wedding dress even after having two kids.

And this year she was in a local production of Cabaret.

Good morning, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa and Jerry!

I thoroughly enjoyed the Lileks piece while eating my unsustainable breakfast, prickly pear fruit not being in season and the California buckwheat crop not ready for harvest.

Love the pics, Jerry. I see your avatar has changed. Have you put on a few pounds?

Heya, Jerry!

I am loathe to mention this, but it’s truly alarming how much your avatar makes you look like Rob Ford.

As you can see, my niece gets her looks from ‘ol Jerry, not that old crone of a sister.

That’s most fortunate for her. 😉

And this year she was in a local production of Cabaret.

Hey…hearing the music play beats sitting alone in one’s room, old chum. 😉

Sorry…didn’t “see” you stop by when I posted my previous comment, so “hai”.
