    He's not watching now, he is doing laundry, changing the bed sheets, putting away the clean dishes, his Sunday chores!! :) I'm off for now, have a great day if I don't stop by later.

    Oh, and that damn racoon came back yesterday morning and tore up the grass/dirt right outside my office window...but at least he didn't mutilate anything this time! Hubs was reading Parade magazine this morning about the differences between dogs and cats...said a dog will chase a squirrel around the yard for hours, but never catch it or eat it, while cats are more focused on the kill, ha! Made me think of WD!!

    July 31, 2011 at 12:38 pm |
    • RichardHead

      Hmmmmm...sounds like I need to hire Odie as an instructor on squirrel takedowns. You can always put Hubs outside with a Zorro mask and wearing a fur coat to entice Mr. Raccoon to come closer for a kill shot. :))

      July 31, 2011 at 12:46 pm |
      • JBJingles_from the casa@RH

        LMAO! Hubs was just saying yesterday he always wanted a cane with a sword in it! He took one (a racoon) out a couple of years ago with his 22 at 4:30 in the morning, neighbors called to see if I was OK! LOL

        Ha,I shall now refer to him as DeadEye. How's the back feeling today and did 'ya get rid of the headaches? I think the cortisone was the cause of those.

        July 31, 2011 at 1:02 pm |
      • JBJingles_from the casa@RH

        Yeah, Friday was rough, I had a fever and headache, and those were two of the signs that maybe some spinal fluid had leaked out when I got the shot...scary, but the headache was not sever and I don't have a thermometer to know if the fever was >101, but felt like a million bucks yesterday and today, so I think I'm good to go now! :)

        July 31, 2011 at 1:08 pm |
      • RichardHead

        Kool,glad your feeling better. If DeadEye is watching Nascar ask him who is going to win? If he says Jeff Gordon with hold ALL beer. :))

        Ha! He prefers chicken and is on a low carb diet still!! How's WD doing? Seems she came up with quite the recipe for beer butt chikken yesterday!

        July 31, 2011 at 12:12 pm |
      • RichardHead

        Morning..She is my culinary Queen,as the John Boehner, spritzed every 15 minutes with pineapple juice was fantastic. She spit out the Harry Reid as he was a spicy old bird. Why are you abusing Odie in this manner?

        July 31, 2011 at 12:19 pm |
      • JBJingles_from the casa@RH

        Well, he developed Diabetes in January and almost died...had 2x a day insulin shots for 3 months and it controlled it, now he has to be on a special diet or we go back to shots...I think he prefers this!

        July 31, 2011 at 12:25 pm |
      • RichardHead

        Poor Odie,Give him a good belly rub for me please. Gawd,I hate shots. What's happening around the Casa today? WD and I are watching Nascar from the Queen's hometown. Goooooooo,Little E !!!

        Ah, I think hubs might join you! He loves a Nas Car! Too early for anything yet, I have to take it easy for 3 days, today is day #3... Although hubs did hopefully wake up the neighbors with the smell of grilling hamburgs @ 8 am!!

    Good morning all!
    Ditto about the clowns in DC. Cannot believe they are all still behaving like five year olds. Hopefully something gets worrked out. Enough wealth has already been destroyed at the hands of partisanship.

      Gooooooooood Morning my Brother–Decide on a movie yet? Stuff some extra kleenex in your pocket in case the Beautiful Bride starts to cry and you can use them to cover your face so that no one can recognize you. Chicken won't be ready till around 3:00.

      July 30, 2011 at 10:18 am |
      • Truth@RichHead

        No call on the movie yet, as Bride is working all day and we head to the concert tonight.. Am working from home today and will head out later to kill off the week's errands. Trying to get productive, but am in stalling mode right now.

  9. RichardHead

    Good Saturday Morning,Homies. In honor of our BOZO President and all the Clowns in Congress...WD and I are grilling Beer Can Chicken using 40 oz beers 'cuz these guys are such tight azzez. Gonna try something NEW today..The John Boehner, We will use a mixture of sweet Paprika and Saigon cinnamon which should match his orange tan when grilled.WD recommends I grill some pineapple rings in case this one is too sour. She is a culinary GENIUS!!
    Next is the Harry Reid, We will use a combination of chili powder,garlic powder and garlic salt,plus a pinch of Saigon cinnamon to get rid of THE HAIR of the DOG affect. This one should be spectacular.
    We were gonna do a John McCain but he is at Antiques Roadshow to see what his real worth is. For sides we will have grilled corn on the cob with jalapeño butter,kicked up pinto beans and corn bread. Dessert is up in the air,yet WD is recommending something with ice cream. Have a GREAT Weekend and stay KOOL everyone. :))

    I have a stooopid Ibuprofen an anti inflammatory med? I'm not suppose to take any anti-inflams for 3 days but I have a headache that just won't go away and it's making me quite crabby and unhappy. Thanks.

    July 29, 2011 at 3:23 pm |
    • tazer warrior princess

      I think it is anti inflammatory. Does it say on the bottle?

      July 29, 2011 at 3:29 pm |
      • JBJingles_from the casa@Taz

        I don't think I really care at this point, I've tried drinking tons of water, eating, sleeping, eating again, diet coke, and still have it. I just had a cortisone injection yesterday and I think they don't want me to bleed? But I can't see how that is possible. BTW – I just went to your blog as I am home and have no evil network firewalls, and lady that is some funny sh!t!! Oh to be young again...

        July 29, 2011 at 3:41 pm |
      • tazer warrior princess

        I do try! Thanks!

        If you have Tylenol I think it's OK

        July 29, 2011 at 3:51 pm |
      • AleeD@JBJ

        Not sure why you would be told not to take IB's. Cort injections & IB's are both anti-inflammatories. IB's are mild; cortisone is strong. Until QOE can give us the real scoop, check this out and see if it makes sense.
        Specifically the section titled "What happens after I get the shot? "

        July 29, 2011 at 3:54 pm |
      • JBJingles_from the casa@Taz & AleeD

        Well, I bit the bullet and took 2 ib's, to he!! with it. AleeD I agree, don't know why, but I couldn't take them 7 days before the shot either which made more sense cuz they were putting a needle in my spine and didn't want me to bleed all over the place I guess. I rarely get headaches but when I do, I prefer Dos Equis (sp?).

    Just got back from an incredible lunch at the place that i will GLADLY take any of the flamenons to if y'all are ever visiting Denver...Lincoln's roadhouse.

        I personally think that both houses of congress should be put immediately on lockdown and nobody goes in or out until a deal is reached. No food, no water and no bathroom breaks. Do it and stop d!(king around...!

        ABSOTIVELY agree. time for LOCKDOWN!

        DEAR CONGRESS, Last year I mismanaged my funds and this year my family and I cannot decide on a budget. Until we have come to a unified decision that fits all of our needs and interests, we will have to shut down our checkbook and will no longer be able to pay our taxes. I'm sure you'll understand. Thank you very much for setting an example we can all follow.

        July 29, 2011 at 3:10 pm |
      • MicheleG

        I am glad to have the right to vote. Don't miss understand. It is the very exercise of that right that make the US different and better. In any other country these guys would have been assassinated by now for their malfeasance, lack of direction and generally floppy sloppy conduct, and messing with the lives of EVERYONE in such a manner.

        But we do it with ballots not bullets.

        Malfeasance: the performance by a public official of an act that is legally unjustified, harmful, or contrary to law; wrongdoing (used especially of an act in violation of a public trust).

      What he really wants to do is go my parents house to watch their new roof get put on but it's waaaaaay too hot outside for that. Hubs was trying to placate him with a popsicle (AKA a siclepop) instead.

        Was a music video by the Flaming Lips (not porn – I wouldn't set up anyone like that) with two girls having a pillow fight. Most people like pillow fights. Most people.

    Good morning kids! Happy Friday. :) Home today on Dr.'s orders, no driving for 24 hrs. So I will try to get some work done from here, just emails really... Did I miss anything good yesterday??

      Morning,How's the back? I believe Hubs has hidden the little hand bell that the Queen sent you,as he and Odie were seen stuffing cotton balls in their ears. :)))

      July 29, 2011 at 11:00 am |
      • JBJingles_from the casa@RH

        Back is sore, have a headache, I'm hungry, and I'm tired. Hubs went to play tennis, thank goodness and Odie is snoozing somewhere, so it is blissfully quiet. I guess I need to go rest up and eat and return when I'm in a better mood...

        Maybe if you watched a little OKRA network tv you will feel better.

    TGIF! Hello everyone! I do apologise for my absence, as of late. I have been way busy with work, and there is little sign of it slowing up in the near future.
    I bring a plate of peanut butter chocolate chip cookies as penance! How are y'all?

    July 29, 2011 at 10:18 am |

      Hey man, how was Phoenix?

      July 29, 2011 at 10:20 am |
      • SeaBee from Home Port @ SirB and Rich

        Phoenix was just about hell on earth. You know it's bad when the weather girl is excited when it was ONLY 107. Yeah, that's just unpleasant.
        Rich, I was trying to make Taze feel a little better by reminding her of some other embarrassing moments. hehehe

        I was there iduring a January, I can't imagine going there in July but over all I thought the city sucked. What did you think of the Irish bar?

      Since you brought cookies, I will re-instate the points I deducted during your absence. Speaking of points...I will post the current point standings as soon as I make...I mean, tally them up.

      Morning Bro–How 'ya feeling today?

      July 29, 2011 at 10:23 am |
    • Sir Biddle@RH

      Still feel fairly nauseous and whatever I have is giving me a very heightened sense of smell. Add in DC heat and a packed trainload of people who think deodorant is an option and you have yourself on the edge of a Biddle Barfing Binge. I can't imagine the triple B's being pretty!

        Went on Wednesday and had blood work and the dixie cup sample. Results (not resluts) should be in early next week. Be curious to see what happens next.

        July 29, 2011 at 10:46 am |
      • RichardHead@SirB

        Let me know what they find out. Haven't heard from Jerv so I'm assuming EOM reports are due and he is working his butt off.

      I don't think he's been around the Biddle but there was a rather tall gentleman in some faboo red leather pants and a white peasant top at WallyWorld this weekend.

      July 29, 2011 at 9:20 am |
    • RichardHead@AleeD

      See what happens when you do a double butt scratch–it makes you late for work and all the cupcakes are gone. :)))

      July 29, 2011 at 9:21 am |
    • AleeD@RichHD, QOE & JJ

      JJ, Brownie-stuffed cupcakes would get me addicted, too! Can't say as I blame him. :D Did you post the how-to on those? I'd love to try them.

      RH, Wasn't late. Got ... tied up. I don't mind missing the cupcakes – I got icing yesterday.
      If you're going to beat the whip, you need something bigger than elbows & a spoon, Big Boy. ;)

      QOE, So both Sir Bid & Jerv are cross-dressers? Learn something new every day.

      I'm going away for the weekend for my companys annual Christmas in July party. It will be a weekend chock full of drinking, eating, boating, drinking, drinking, and maybe some more drinking. It's always a good time!

      Morning Bro...Looks like all the hot air from DC blew TS Don further south and we probably won't get any rain:( WD and I will be chill in' and grilling' this weekend plus watching the Indy race. What's your plans?

      July 29, 2011 at 8:50 am |

      Getting my first inoculations and going to see some Vietnamese caoncert tomorrow night at Bride's insistence. File it under "The Things We Do For Love"...

        DO NOT drop your pants no matter what the nurse tells you. The concert sounds interesting though–is the orchestra from VN?

        July 29, 2011 at 9:04 am |
      • Queen of Everything@Truth

        What are you getting innoculated for?

        July 29, 2011 at 9:05 am |
      • Truth@Queen, RichHead

        I am getting the first of my Hepatitis B series, along with my MMR and Tetanus series and my TB test. A lot of this I may have already had when I was in the military, so I am bringing in my shot records and letting them figure it out. Tetanus I need to have done again, as I last had it when I was doing Katrina relief, and it was not documented. If time permits, I may also pick up my gear and uniforms, as we are expected to be in uniform on day 1.

        The concert should be fun. Late, but fun. It is a series of singers from VN who tour the US regularly. Bride has gone before with her sister in law, but this is a first for me.

        July 29, 2011 at 9:49 am |
      • Queen of Everything@Truth

        TB testing has to be done yearly and you'll probably still get the MMR as the immunity does wear off.

        July 29, 2011 at 9:52 am |
      • Truth@Queen

        Miss Saigon actually had to go through the whole 9 months of TB medications, as she was carrying when she got here. Made her extremely sick, but now she is done for good. And you are probably right, in that they will probably hit me again with the rest, as my time in the service was back in 1983...Hard to believe that I would be pension elegible by now.

        July 29, 2011 at 10:05 am |
      • Queen of Everything@Truth

        The only thing you may get out of is the Hep B series but only is you've had all 3 shots before. Once you get these out of the way you only have to go through the annual TB test and flu and pneumonia vaccines.

        July 29, 2011 at 10:14 am |

    And people are idiots (looking at the KFC honors Col. Sanders thread). Why is it that some people will use any thread to either spout some ideology (here it's usually vegetarian/vegan/let's save the animals...) or show just how stupid/racist/elitist/etc they are, or *both*?
