I held out to see if TM had something coming. Not seeing anything, I did a quick Memorial Day thread.

Ah, yes, Happy Birthday Windy!!! Someone else's birthday too. Her initials are RPM - not a commenter, but a grandchild. Who can remember? She turns 2 today.

Great day down in Wilmington touring the USS North Carolina. Got to see DoT's family's name up on one of the displays on the ship. Fun was had by all.

Ig: Black Hawk was the actual name of a dude. In fact since he fought against the US they probably consider him a doubly excellent role model. Compared to today, where Black Eagle is the adopted name of the dude who is now president. In fact since he is fighting against the US they probably consider him a doubly excellent role model.
Oh goody! The family's back from shopping and we're headed out to Hillbilly Hideaway!
BTW - note this from my comments... I succeeded in skipping the Hillary speech this morning. I referenced this earlier in the week - that speech was part of the day that Bill and Hill netted over a million bucks in speeches in one day.
To go with the post........... Fisherman's Wharf comment. Sitting on a patio down on the wharf here in beautiful San Fran. Just finished me clam chowder, about to finish my second Anchor Steam, and I'm having something called lobster and shrimp spaghetti. #yolo I succeeded in skipping the Hillary speech this morning. The afternoon keynote session included the Beach Boys, which was fun. Dadgum they're old. But still a lot of fun. Daddy still took the T-Bird away.... Spaghettis here and time for beer three. kthxbai Posted by: hit and run | October 14, 2014 at 10:26 PM Chinatown comment. Roof patio in Chinatown. Just got my Tsingtao and potstickers. Let the fun begin. Posted by: hit and run | October 15, 2014 at 08:31 PM Skates meet up comments. Here in a few I think I'll go stand out on the corner and stick my thumb out and see if I can't get a JOMer to stop and pick me up. Worth a shot. TCFAB! Posted by: hit and run | October 16, 2014 at 05:11 PM ****************************** It worked! A JOMer picked me up on the corner. Posted by: hit and run | October 16, 2014 at 06:50 PM ****************************** I'm on the BART after a great meet up with Elliott, DrJ, Iggy and myself. Elliott picked me up at my hotel and off we headed over the bridge to Berkeley. We arrived first at the restaurant (the same one where several of us also gathered two years ago). We then waited for DrJ and Iggy, I with my beer and Elliott with his tea. To our chagrin, there were no waitresses who carried themselves with the poise and confidence of seasoned athletes. When DrJ and Iggy arrived I ordered my fourth beer, but I swear only so DrJ wouldn't be drinking alone. I'm a giver like that. We sat in the bar for a bit before moving to the dining room. Poor DrJ wanted us to come to a decision on appetizers, but we all decidedly decided to be indecisive. So it was on to entrees. Lamb, pork chops, crab cake and scallops were all selected. I had a couple more beers at some point. It all went by so fast and I could not have enjoyed it more. This is the third/fourth time I have met up with Elliott and DrJ, and this time was as good as ever. This was the first time I have ever met Iggy, and it was pure joy. I wish we could have spent hours more together. As I promised the guys . . . some day I will get up to DrJ's secret lab, play golf with Elliott, and cut down a tree or two or three with Iggy. Some day. I eagerly await that day. I dream of that day. Thank you guys for an evening that has blessed me immeasurably. Posted by: hit and run | October 16, 2014 at 11:34 PM
That's more like it. DrJ helped me sort out my confusion in an email. Lagunitas Pale Ale at the Skates meetup with him Elliott and Iggy. Fixed the post.
Sue: Yes. He and my husband were members of the airport bum society. So all these years I thought you were my favorite - it was really your husband. This raises more questions than it answers.
We used to joke way back about you being friends with a Shiner distributor Sue - is that the guy? My parents brought me some Lone Star too, Porch. Oh and I just switched to Miller Lite. That's the beer I grew up on (that is, that's the beer my dad drank when i was growing up).
(oh, i'm afraid i've misremembered the beer i had at skates. i've asked drj if he recalls - i'd be happy to be corrected if i'm wrong)
I get you, Sue. Coors light is fine with me. Probably mrs hit and run's favorite domestic. High Life has a higher alchohol content tho, which is why Miss Marple prefers it, I'm sure. This is mrs hit and run's current favorite beer: Saint Arnolds Lawnmower When her sis came to visit - they brought about 6 cases of it (you can't get it here). The brewery is right off I-10 in Houston - and you pass it on the way. My parents just got in town yesterday and they brought about 6-six packs (that's all Tom Thumb had - they cleaned them out).
Daddy bait.
Let's do a new thread.

Ig: Almost prefaced it with "Just for TK". :) Heh. The good news is - my bold prediction used the word I predicted would be used, as did your quote of it, so the word has been used twice now so I'm like totally vindicated. And stuff.

Someone else or Some Guy?
Bold Prediction: Ig's link to WUWT will result in the use of the word "loon" by sundown.

If he punched out, can you say that he landed it?

Cecil: We opened this thing up again? Why? It's what the people want.
So after Obama's commencement speech at the Coast Guard, I decided to check in on the Naval Academy commencement. Joe Biden! Oh, boy this oughta be... Wait. It actually was a pretty good speech. Whereas Obama made climate change the central theme in his speech, Biden just made an off-hand reference... When millions of lives were ravaged by nature, as we saw after the devastating typhoon in the Philippines, the United States Navy filled the void, saving countless lives. Our presence -- your presence -- matters. As President Obama discussed at the Coast Guard Academy graduation a couple days ago, a changing climate means “more extreme storms will mean more humanitarian missions to deliver lifesaving help. Our forces will have to be ready.” You remain indispensable. That was it. He didn't talk at all about it being man made or needing to cut CO2 or reduce the reliance on fossil fuels. The rest of the speech was pretty basic stuff of praising the graduates, praising the Navy and speaking of the historical role the Navy played in securing our national interest and global peace. Well I'll be. BTW, it seems at least a little interesting that Biden went to the Navy commencement and Obama to the Coast Guard.
