Happy Sunday morning! The dogs got me up, very gently-but-insistently, shaking their collars and staring at me while I pretended to be asleep. A new day is always so exciting for them .. and I take a lesson (when I remember)!
In my perusal of the usual news venues … and Twitterland … I am coming upon a plethora (yes, a plethora, I did say that) of excellent one-liners about a certain individual whom I have sworn off of (or off of whom I have sworn). So I’ll settle for this helpful twist on the Birther Movement from Bill Maher, who proposes the following:
New Rule: The Republican leadership in America must produce their birth certificates! Not because I doubt they’re Americans, I just want to make sure they’re not eight-years-old.
Okay, and I can’t resist this …
I haven’t seen the match yet, but the USWNT defeated Germany 4-0 yesterday evening in Cleveland … in what sounded like an excellent match. Well done, Lil!
This just annoys the hell out of me … in a world where so many are living on the edge … the whole Frank and Jamie McCourt divorce flap.
In my fantasy world, Jamie asks for a million in spousal support, Jamie offers half, and the judge orders them both to put all of their combined assets toward the clean-up of the Gulf. It’s sobering to read how close they came to being Red Sox owners … yikes!
And I love this McCourt tidbit from USA Today …
” … the Dodgers have paid the couple’s two adult sons a total of $600,000 a year for services “that could not be described” by either parent and have paid nearly $4 million in “consulting services” to an entity “that has done virtually nothing for the club, even as the team has made a concerted effort to raise ticket prices, trim payroll and acquire players on the cheap.”
Meanwhile, Elin Nordgren is upping the ante with Tiger … but somehow, I don’t mind that as much. Let her get her pound (or two) of flesh.
Here’s the castle at the lake again …
… and below is a close-up showing the embedded bottles, a window, etc.
I believe those are Rolling Rock bottles, if I’m not mistaken … those refreshing-looking green ones!
What are you doing today?
I know I’ll be watching/listening to the Phillies/Red Sox game at some point … hoping Roy Halliday can hold the Sox … and the Phillies’ bats come back to life after last night’s near-no-hitter!
