Happy Birthday AP3

Happy 40th birthday to my baby girl, AP3.

Here she is when we were 39 and a half years younger.

She's the cute one.

Happy Birthday sweetie!

Sign of the times

My Obama yard sign is stolen nightly. That's okay. I go daily and get a new one. No problem. I contribute to his campaign fund each time, so maybe it's for the best.

It's a bit scary, however, to think that thieves visit my yard at night. They come onto my property, and steal from me. Sad. If you pray, perhaps you could pray for them.

Another sign of the time, a happier sign, is how beautiful it is here in the autumn.

Since I visit the Obama headquarters on my side of the river so often, I'll be working there today. Things work out, no?

It's that time of year

It's that time of year when you start getting free calendars from your hair stylist, your congressperson, the mechanic, and so on.

But of course, you can buy a calendar to support a cause.

Julieanne Smolinski writes that "Men on a Mission, a calendar of shirtless Mormon missionaries, was created last year by Chad Hardy, a former missionary and Brigham Young University grad. Chad claims the calendars, the sale of which go to assorted charities, are meant to de-mythologize Mormon sexuality and promote understanding between religions (because nipples are the universal language)." That Julieanne. I think I like her. (Poor ol' Chad was excommunicated.)

These mortuary guys donate two bucks from each sale to breast cancer. Makes me sorry that I had my Mama cremated. These hunks coulda dug her grave. Sob.

The Naked Fishermen have a calendar too. Some sorta "save the fish" thingie I guess. Yeah. Save the fish from drowning. You do that by removing them from the water. Like that.

And of course, you have the ever-popular naked chef stuff:

Personally, I'd want to know if a net was used before I tasted

Now this one is just disturbing. DISTURBING.

The bare naked clowns give their money to Multiple Sclerosis, which is a wonderful cause. Their calendar features clowns "in a myriad of positions designed to delight...." And answers questions such as "Who’s bendy like a gummy bear?"

Scary. Interesting. But mostly scary.

These men took it off their old bodies to raise money for their local schools.

They're a big group.

This is probably their centerfold. Be still my heart.

But I've decided to buy a naked firemen calendar. Mmmmmmm.... firemen are so hot.

Well tonight is yet another debate. I made up my mind long ago who I was voting for: Barack Obama.

But let's face it, so many people vote not on the issues, but on the perceived personality of their favorite, that anything the "other side" says is just so much bull. Which reminds me....

Hauling bull. Politicians take it on the road don't they?

Sling it all over.

Who the heck is gonna clean it up when it's all over?

I hate all those political signs that get left everywhere after the election. Don't you?

October Rabbit Rabbit

I bet you wish you'd put your money in a piggy bank right about now. I know I do.

Better yet a Rabbit Bank:

Right now I don't even know what to wish for in the bailout situation. A miracle maybe?

When they're done picking our pockets, we can all yell RABBIT RABBIT and hope for the best.
