Delusional Democrats Counting Their 2018 Midterm Wins Even Before The Eggs Are LAID!

Click to access my post from a few days ago.

Why would the Democrats even mention this.

Winning the House is NOT a certainty. Don’t they, for Christ Sake, ever learn? Remember Donald Trump had NO PATH to 270.

This is ludicrous.

I do NOT think that there will be Blue Wave. If there is any wave at all, I think it will be RED. I don’t want that but I am being realistic. I got burned, and burned BADLY, in 2016. I am not going to get burned again in 2018.

Democrats should STOP counting their chicks even before the eggs are laid, never mind hatched.

No wonder the Republicans play them like idiots.

She has been working on this for the last few days. She uses a ‘modern’ protractor to draw the circles. All the rest is freehand and her own design. She has been working on this for the last few days.

She is very SHY of her work. When she is finished she squirrels it away. She is not happy that I photograph her work but she knows that it is the price she has to pay for being my daughter. I have offered to buy this painting.

How much do you think it is worth?

I offered her $5. She wanted $10, then changed her mind and said $15. What would YOU pay, though she will not sell it to anybody but I and I dare not sell it!

Today Is ‘Michaelmas Day’ 2018 — Happy Michaelmas, Enjoy Your Goose.

Click to ENLARGE and read here. Wikipedia:

Since I am not into angels this is really not my thing — though I am always happy to eat goose (even once, 40-years ago, in Thailand, eating swan thinking it was duck).

But, when I hear ‘Michaelmas’ it does bring back memories — now filtered by decades of time. As some of you know I had a very traditional British upbringing, including Public (i.e., Private, fee-paying) School and British Universities. At Mill Hill, in particular, ‘Michaelmas’ was always used to denote the Fall (i.e., Sept. to Dec.) term. I associate that with Rugby.

So, it crossed my mind that I should share with lovely, quite British tradition with some of you — as a de facto ambassador for the Brits.


If you are into Angels this is YOUR DAY.

Wonder whether geese know of angels

It is that time of year again. Needed to get my 2002 Jaguar XJ8 inspected. Well, there is only one person around here that I trust with my Jags. Paul Bousquet, “B-Boys Auto Repair” in Barnstead. Paul, always, has a magnificent display of flowers at his place and all the flowers are his. He is an amazing person. So many talents. The foliage was on the way back. I stopped at three places.
