Hello!

Iran launched a rocket attack into Baghdad’s Green Zone, drawing a sharp warning response from the President.

The Mayor of South Bend, the Left’s latest thrill, wants to erase Thomas Jefferson from the history books. What idiocy! Does he mean tear down the Jefferson Memorial, too?

    For those of you who watch “The Voice” on NBC….they fired the Democrat for acting like one !!! Adam Levine is gone !!! Hah!!

  2. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Good morning! Another day of garden work, and slowly, I’m improving on the stiffness scale

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Jemian, hope you continue to improve. ED, you had a full day yesterday…I had a 3 hour lunch friend, catching up and laughing. Today, I need to do some email catching up

    • The Raven says:

      The R’s have the Senate, the Presidency, & SCOTUS – yet you’d think the Dems are running the country.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Really. Does that show the influence of the media accomplices in crime? I think so… The media is like a 4th branch, and then there’s the power of the entrenched bureaucrats.

    • The Raven says:

      You know, when I clicked this The Worst Cover-Up of All Time – I thought it was going to be about Obama’s fake Deep State Russian collusion .

    • Jemian says:

      Our new mattress just arrived by FedEx. We were hoping it would arrive before next Wednesday. So, this thing arrives scrolled into a box. We haul this very heavy scroll up the stairs and into a spare room. Then, the fun begins. The plastic holding it together is removed. The mattress is unrolled and the inflation begins. It takes about 48 hours for enough air for the mattress to reach its fullness. Which is good, because the frame has not arrived.

    • The Raven says:

      Looks like Brexit will win big (a political movement only six weeks old!). Results Sunday.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      yep…BREXIT is going to be a winner AGAIN!
      Jemian Your mattress delivery beats our new monitor delivery…from Dell via FEDEX, and it seems to be lost in transit somewhere…they will have to sort it out and get back to my husband on the next step.

    • The Raven says:

      Jem. We did the same thing. We had a spare guest room with exercise equipment.. When the grandkids came, we would move the equipment and get out the inflatable mattress. We decided to instead put a Murphy bed into that room. We had to buy a mattress within a certain weight range for the mechanism. We found one on Amazon – right weight, memory foam, and cheap. The mattress came just as you say. We unrolled it and watched it expand. Pretty neat.

  3. The Raven says:

    The Democrats are using the federal government and their power of office as a fundraiser. Trump need to have a prime time speech and detail it.

  4. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone. Greg is happy. We took the boat to the camp yesterday and got it on the hoist .

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      That’s good….summer…the lake…relaxation…Thanks for breakfast lysie
      It is warm out there…only 7 a.m. and it is WARM. YAY!

    • lysie says:

      Good morning, Molly. You are welcome. Rain coming our way. Blah!

    • edinva says:

      THanks, as always, for breakfast, lysie … whenever you mention the lake my mind goes to the photos you posted last year when EVERYTHING was covered in what appeared to be FEET of ice! So nice you can enjoy a boat on the lake now …. for its short season, it’s hard to beat upstate NY.

      Nothing new here … my family/friends seem determined to keep me busy! Had lunch in Arlington yesterday with one of my sons, a visit here with one of the new neighbors, then leisurely, casual dinner with long-term (not old!) friends. Got home just before bedtime. Accomplishments: Zero. And I suppose that’s as it should be.

      Glorious day here! Warm, sunny, breezy. Maybe I’ll get the gardening done? Maybe.

    • lysie says:

      Enjoy your day ,ed.

      No ice now, but the water levels are very, very high. Sandbagging almost like year 2017.

    • tillacum says:

      Good morning girls. It is a beautiful day in central Texas. Hopefully the rain will hold off for a few day. The yard looks like something happened out there.

    • lysie says:

      Hi , till. Rain coming our way…soon. Blah!

    • Jemian says:

      Very nice day here, too. Nonetheless, my plan for a relaxing day hit a nose dive. I developed a small backache yesterday. Didn’t improve with sleep or hot pad. So, I went to urgent care. Kidney infection. I was expecting that diagnosis. So, hubby is off to get my antibiotic and I expect to be better about 1 or 2.

    • lysie says:

      That stinks, Jem. Take care.

    • Jemian says:

      I am better. Not quite over it, but definitely improved.

  5. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • The Raven says:

      My wife had an early doctor appt yesterday and on the way home we decided to stop and have breakfast. We were in an unfamiliar area and we spotted an old mom&pop place called Home Cookin’ and pulled in. That had to be the best breakfast we’ve ever had. They need to change the name to Lysie’s

    • The Raven says:

      What;s with the rash of States passing abortion restrictions. I assume they are seeking a Roe overturn at SCOTUS. I can’t see it happening yet. Roberts would probably side with the libs. Maybe if RBG is replaced.

    • lysie says:

      Morning, Rav. 🙂

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Good morning!

      Sometimes those small, local places are the best…home cookin’. Speaking of food…that reminds me of Portland, which has been a foodie’s paradise, but the city is going to h### in a handbasket now due to crazy mayor and too much leftism.
      The oak pollen has been terrible this year….like a carpet over the lawn and driveway…
      As for the abortion issue, the Dems started it with their extreme positions in NY State…Illinois….the Virginia gov’s comments…

    • Jemian says:

      Well, well, well. It is the end of the middle of the week. I cannot believe we are half-way through it. Sunday we traveled to Mississippi and had a nice visit with a long-time supporting church. Then, Monday we traveled back. Five hours each way. I truly enjoyed traveling through the Black Belt, the western counties of our state. It is named the Black Belt because of the rich, good-for-growing soil there. We passed through a town named Cuba. A delightful trip all the way and back.

      Then, Monday, dinner with my dad and family. The restaurant was very noisy and found it rather unsettling. The waitress asked me how I wanted my steak. “Rare,” says I.
      Ökay, well done, it is.”

      To which the rest of the family answered, loudly and in chorus, “RARE!” She got it that time.

      Tuesday started with a visit to the Hughston Clinic. It is amazing how helpful they’ve been. But, after I finish with them, I am wiped out for the rest of the day. Still, I managed to get myself together and get to band practice. I, hubby, my brother, my sister-in-law, and perhaps my nephew are all performing in a community band for the Fourth. The conductor is a friend from high school. Well over half of the members are also directors.

      So, today was also a puttering day. I need those. I wish I could be profitable and get tons and tons of work done in our long-neglected yard. Well, it didn’t happen today. But I did get some vitamin D in the pool (little kiddie pool, but at least I can float and read a book in it), followed by hammock time.

      All for now.

      Oh yes, last night hubby and I bought a king-sized mattress and frame for over the internet. Fed Ex will bring it next week.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Too funny…As I was wrapping up my chorus and choir years, I began to notice that the newer pieces being written, and that we would sometimes sing, were written a lot simpler than the newer pieces of music that I had learned in earlier years.
      Music is being dumbed down, and I guess not taught generally to students. Sad.

      Glad to read you had such a productive week & fun week…Jemian.

  6. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Oh so delicious! Good morning…warm temps again for a few days.
      We went to our favorite hamburger place last night…it’s a Monday thing…2 for the price of one….

  7. The Raven says:

    As the investigators get closer to “unmasking” the Obama administration’s fake and illegal Russian collusion scandal, the House will of course provide an impeachment effort so as to monopolize the headlines and news cycles. The R’s just have no idea how to go after the Dems. Such a shame.

  8. edinva says:

    G’day, all…. Jem, I’d read about the policeman who was killed and his partners injured but didn’t realize it was your area. Every time I read about a cop killed in action it causes knots in my stomach. One of my brothers was NYPD, one of his sons now Albany (NY) PD. Those kids grew up in fear that one day dad wasn’t coming home.

    Lysie, you are SUCH a pillar of your community … always giving of yourself. I’m sure they appreciate all you and Greg do. If they don’t we’ll go up there and beat them up!!

    I returned last night from a wonderful 5 day visit to the Shenandoah Valley of VA … perfect weather and SPring there is overwhelmingly beautiful. My friend is an artist and has not only a arty home but gardens … one of her gardens has her “Alice in Wonderland” sculptures, and each section is cut out in shapes of hearts/diamonds/spades/clubs. So cute. It’s so peaceful there. Their house is set back a good half mile from the road and then the rolling hills leading to the mountains. Paradise!! Friday we went into Staunton where they have a highly acclaimed Shakespeare theater .. updated works, with entertainment before an during intermission, with the players also musicians and singers. Nice, intimate theater. Then I took Amtrak home and that was lovely running through the countryside, even despite AC going on the fritz on a hot day … Amtrak brought all passengers in the car ice and water, as much as they wanted/needed. Just a great experience overall.

    Tomorrow I’ll be going with friends to the cemetery where Larry will be interred next December and where almost all his ancestors are laying in peace. Cute little country cemetery going back to the AmRev, so lots of local history buried there (so to speak) … in rural Montgomery County, MD (yes, there still are rural areas in MoCo that otherwise is pathetically liberal). Our friends’ family is out there, too, so we will bring flowers and flags in advance of the Memorial Day weekend.

    Friday I return to the White House after being out since Christmas (with only 2 1-day exceptions when DH was at the rehab). It’ll be especially nice since downtown and the area around the WH will be crawling with Rolling Thunder riders, a pleasant change from the uptight career ladder climbers that populate this town.

    • Jemian says:

      We just returned from a trip to Mississippi by way of Cuba. Didn’t spend much time there, just drove through. Very sad local news here. Three police officers answered a call for a domestic disturbance. One officer was killed and two wounded. The perp was apprehended about 0730 this morning. DA is asking for the death penalty.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      That’s awful. I believe police hate that kind of call….domestic disturbance

  9. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone. Had a great turnout for the steak bake….sold out. Yippee!

    • lysie says:

      Thanks for the new thread, Molly.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      You are very welcome, and congrats on the sale. Your community strongly supports your post, that’s for sure.

    • The Raven says:

      When, after a few introductory bars, clarinet and oboe sound una voce a sweet melody on top of the quiet murmuring of the strings, any child knows the composer and a half-suppressed exclamation “Schubert” runs hummingly through the hall. He has hardly entered, but it is as if you knew his steps, his very way of opening the door… The whole movement is a sweet stream of melodies, in spite of its vigor and geniality so crystal-clear that you can see every pebble on the bottom. And everywhere the same warmth, the same golden sunshine that makes buds grow! The Andante unfolds itself broadly and [even] more majestically [than the opening Allegro]. Sounds of lament or anger rarely enter this song full of intimate, quiet happiness, clouds of a musical thunderstorm reflecting musical effect rather than dangerous passion… The sonorous beauty of both movements is enchanting. With a few horn passages, an occasional brief clarinet or oboe solo on the simplest, most natural basis of orchestration, Schubert achieves sound effects which no refinement of Wagner’s instrumentation ever attains.

      Ha! I love the last sentence…
