Monday salutations, GN!

I hope it’s after 6:00 p.m. in teh thread pic or that penguin’s overdressed for mayhem.

Sven --

Bless your heart (in the good way) for looking after your former neighbor. I hope his family proves to be helpful. At risk of being redundant: Good. Gerbils.

And because it’s Monday:

And cat owners everywhere cheer and then look around to make sure they are unobserved.

We have a significant Santa Ana event scheduled to begin tomorrow -- short but very hot and windy for maybe 36 hours. And then oddly enough a chance of rain at the end of the week.

Happy Monday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!

All this talk of imminent death and destruction reminds me of this little ditty:

Back in the day, Tom Lehrer was worth at least fifty Mark Russells (in large part -- but not exclusively -- because Lehrer wrote original music).

Hello GN!

Just back from the hospital -- our friend is doing much better. And even better news is that his sister and her son-in-law are flying in from Detroit tomorrow.

The difference between Saturday and today is just stunning. I could not be happier -- won’t jinx things, but I’m hopeful.

Now a little girl is saying how deplorable we all are. Was it just me or did anyone else think the applause was awkward and inappropriate given the tone and words from this girl?

Huh. Seems like the NRA has more members than the Emmy Awards had viewers. Bummer for them.
