This-n-That Thursday

Drivel:
  • Is it me, or does the space station seem to be breaking down a lot lately?
  • I had a dream I had Shauna Sand Shoes. It's come to that.
  • I collect clever obituaries. I have a folder full of them.
  • What are you when you're too old to be a cougar?
  • I am so annoyed with the big news stories this week that texting while driving and tanning beds are dangerous. Duh. Are we that stupid?
  • Am I the only one who doesn't understand all the stuff on the Healthcare Bill?
  • Speaking of healthcare, do you know that a cat with congestive heart failure can almost bankrupt you?
  • Augie leaves for college in 19 days; The Bird leaves in 22. I wonder if the President will have me over for a beer to make me feel better.

I'll have you over for a beer (or a cider)!
Anxiously awaiting your arrival!

(I don't understand the healthcare bill either)

Corgis. They grow up to be Corgis.

Your dreams of Shauna Sands shoes only proves you are still a cougar...Phil concurs and STILL talks about how hot you are. Everytime he sees a photo of you come across the digital fram, he sighs and looks wistful.

Maybe President Obama will let us have blogfest at Camp David next year...that would totally rock and there would be cute marines for us to totally abuse.

Sally's World said...

in the UK it is illegal to use your cell phone whilst driving, and guy that caused an accident while texting actually got a custodial sentence...

Marsha said...

I'm beginning to think we ARE that stupid. Look at the way products have to be labeled, you know?

big hair envy said...

You, Mama, will NEVER be too old to be a cougar;)

See you in 22 days:)

Maybe we can have the President over for a beer and he can explain the Healthcare Bill to us! Let me know what day is good for you...so I can call him.

Keetha said...

He totally should.

Deb said...

That's actually a fine idea...beer with the President to discuss your empty nest syndrome and THEN you can ask him about the health care plan1

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

MPM, if the President doesn't invite you over for a beer, there's a standing invitation from here.

You're better than a cougar, and yes more than a few men were enchanted with you during your stay here.

MPM's got it goin' on.

I would love to hear a sampling of those obits. Stuff like that makes my genealogy-heart sing.

A favorite thing in Key West - visiting the grave with the marker that says "I told you I was sick"!

...It's so funny that you bring up those shoes 'cause I hired a stripper for my husband's 50th birthday party last weekend and what did she show up in but Shauna Sand Shoes! And then she got upset because the party was outside and we had intended for her to do her lil' act in the backyard but she informed me that she could twist her ankles in the grass in her 6 inch Shauna Sand Shoes and that she wasn't about to put her career in jeopardy for our party... I was all like, "career?!, yee-ah"...lol Anyway, I thought of you Saturday night...*giggle* :o)

...I say forget the beer and invite the Pres' over for a kegger! lol... ;o)

...Blessings...

Counting down the days to lots and lots and lots of wine....

And are you ever really too old to be a cougar? Nah, I don't think so. Otherwise, you are just old, and screw that!

TSannie said...

Oh dear...those days are trickling down...

Daryl said...

Only if he says you acted stupidly on national television .. and if you are offered a Blue Moon make sure its served with a slice of orange.

1. Is it me, or does the space station seem to be breaking down a lot lately?

That's weird. We were talking about that at work this morning.

2. I had a dream I had Shauna Sand Shoes. It's come to that.

I dream about work and mishaps in life. Consider yourself lucky.

3. I collect clever obituaries. I have a folder full of them.

Cool!

4. What are you when you're too old to be a cougar?

Ummmmmm - vulture?

5. I am so annoyed with the big news stories this week that texting while driving and tanning beds are dangerous. Duh. Are we that stupid?

Yes and that study costs MILLIONS of our tax dollars to find that out. GAH!

6. Am I the only one who doesn't understand all the stuff on the Healthcare Bill?

I don't believe the people who wrote the HC Bill understand it either. Especially who is going to pay for it.

7. Speaking of healthcare, do you know that a cat with congestive heart failure can almost bankrupt you?

Night Night Kitty Kitty

8. Augie leaves for college in 19 days; The Bird leaves in 22. I wonder if the President will have me over for a beer to make me feel better.

You'll be a free woman - Blogger Road Trip to Bloggy Friends Houses?

noble pig said...

Yes he should have you over for a beer...I'm so sorry but that whole thing is lame. The president doesn't have people over for beer...WTH?

Texting while driving is dangerous and so are tanning beds...OMG who knew.

Response to drivel:

It is a project primarily run by men. Of course it's breaking down a lot.

I had a dream I had Shauna Sand Shoes. It's come to that.
Residual damage from that picture of the shoe in you head - you shouldn't have pushed the heel in so far.

I collect clever obituaries. I have a folder full of them.
No creepier than me going to look at clever epitaphs on headstones with my southern sister-in-law. Is that a southern thing?

What are you when you're too old to be a cougar?
Dead!

I am so annoyed with the big news stories this week that texting while driving and tanning beds are dangerous. Duh. Are we that stupid?
Apparently there is a segment of the population that is. Makes you wonder what will happen when these people are managing our retirement and social security. If it still exists!

Am I the only one who doesn't understand all the stuff on the Healthcare Bill?
It's not meant to be understood. But I think that the president, congress and all government employees should be required to have the end result as their insurance. Then it might cover some actual medical problems.

Speaking of healthcare, do you know that a cat with congestive heart failure can almost bankrupt you?
Yes because I had a dog that had two surgeries on its torn hind ligaments ($3000), allergy shots ($140 a bottle for the serum), an allergist (about $300 for each visit), an ophthalmologist for cataracts..... Even the weekend that she got sick and had to be euthanized cost us almost $1,000!

Augie leaves for college in 19 days; The Bird leaves in 22. I wonder if the President will have me over for a beer to make me feel better.
Feel free to stop when you drop them off - I'm right on the way to both their schools! And I'll be happy to pour you a cold one.

Audrey at Barking Mad said...

Well if the POTUS won't have you over for a beer, never fear m'dear...hop on I95 and I'll have a cold one waiting for you. And maybe a lobster too.

Country Girl said...

A crone comes after cougar and you're nowhere near that stage. I don't think you'll ever be . . .

I don't understand the healthcare bill either.

How is the kitty?

baronessvonb said...

I think that the mothers of twins leaving for college should be compensated in some special way.

Like a sleepover at the White House.

Or an all-expense paid trip to Napa...

Mary said...

I didn't think anyone actually paid attention to news about the space station.

What comes after cougar? IDK, creepy?

I'm not actually sure what is in the HC bill but if you listen to Republicans, it will deny us treatment, bankrupt us, and then euthanize us. That sounds pretty comprehensive, if nothing else...

:)

Karen Deborah said...

hummm probably not. No no one understands it. If we didn't pay for illegals we wouldn't be going broke. What kind of shoes? Have I been missing something important? Are they shiny?
ummm kids leaving now that is a big one definitely not drivel.

kim-d said...

Well...on the bright side...if Mr. President does have you over for a beer, maybe you can get him to explain the healthcare bill. Hopefully, HE understands it! :)

Bayman said...

Lions and Cougars and Beers, Oh My!

Miss you.

Magpie said...

i have an awesome book of british obits. over the top, really.

Suz Broughton said...

I love This n That Thursday. I got nothing to say but that..(no this at all).

Pouty Lips said...

No texting while driving Mama P? What is this world coming to?

Next thing you know I will be outlawed from giving Mr. P lap dances while he drives. I just cannot express my outrage.

Meg @ Soup Is Not A Finger Food said...

I'm hoping NOT to find out how much money we could spend on our geriatric cat who is losing hair, peeing a ton, and now, today, is having runny poos too. Just not an investment I'm able to make right now.

Sassy said...

I have said it all before but I love your this and that Thursday's....and no I don't understand that stuff either....
