TGIF!

After playing hookey on Tuesday, when I went back to work one of the girls I stock for asked me if I was "one of the felons". I asked what she meant and she said that the company made anyone who was a convicted felon take Tuesday off (with pay) because they couldn't be in the building when Bush was! I told her no, I had a vacation day; I'm not sure she believed me...

Yet I wonder, how many convicted felons are among the appointees in the White House?

The place still smells of sulfur...

Finally though, it's Friday; Dottie is off this weekend, and if the weather cooperates I'll be shaking down the boat tomorrow afternoon or Sunday. We are in a cycle of daily thunderstorms right now (so far no hail or tornadoes), and Sunday they are predicting wind along with the rain, so we'll see how it all works out! I have about half of the reels cleaned, oiled and respooled with fresh line; by the time the weekend is over the rest will be done.

It's been a race; the grass is greener and getting close to needing mowed, and I've been trying to get the boat to the point I can "get it wet" before I have to mow for the first time. Silly, I know, but it's something that never happened even back in the "good old days".

Last Sunday I got the grandkids out to bank fish at the children's pond at our county lake. Before I had the first rod baited the 3 year old was chunking rocks; the wind was up and it was cool that afternoon, mid 50's, so I knew they wouldn't last long. We stayed about an hour and half, and they didn't catch anything, but they did have good time. One of the highlights was a Canadian goose who seemed to think that 3 year old Caleb was a rival for his two "lady friends"; everytime the boy moved the gander raised to his full height, glared and "talked" to him. Had we left him alone, I'm not sure he might not have tried to "herd" him away from his harem!

I haven't uploaded the memory card from the little camera yet, but if there is anything good I'll get them posted Sunday or Monday!

May your weekends be wonderful!

lol...yes,the felon part is funny...especially given the number of law-breakers in, or close to, the whitehouse...

the it's been interesting watching political coverage south of the border from your great white (rainy) northern neighbour. it seems to have only been in the last six months or so that the mainstream american media has been acknowledging the anti-bush sentiments of many (the majority of?) american citizens...

I had no idea that was "policy" for political. Interesting.

Hope you have a good weekend, and that you'll post photos. I always like seeing photos from blogpals.

political visits, that is

If that's the case, I guess G. Gordon Libby, Jack Abramoff, Scooter et al. don't get attend a Bush event. Soon Tom "I retreated, I surrendered" Delay may not be able to attend.

Hell, if things keep going the way they are Bush won't even be able to attend a Bush event.

Thanks for stopping by Alan, and thanks for the kind thoughts.

Tom Delay?? what is this hypocrite doing making the rounds of the talk shows? The man has no scruples.
Listening to him talk about finding Christ in his heart almost made me lose it...But that seems to be what all republicans do when caught in
with their hands in the cookie jar.
They become born again.
Well I hope he takes his phony
rebirth with him when he gets convicted.

I've never heard that rule about felons and the prez. If it's true, they probably mean felons who aren't millionaires!

Interesting interaction between the gander and Caleb. I would have loved to see a photo of that.

Hope the weather has been kind enough to get you out on your boat.

Your "sulfur" remark cracked me right up.

I hope you mean it as a hell/devil reference. If there actually was a stinky eggs smell after he left that cracks me up even harder.
