Also, I think that Boris (Bori?) is a close neighbor. If you are, I’ll be at Its Time tomorrow evening around 7:15pm. I’ll have an orange Chambers Bay Us Open cap on.

Buckeye if you’re around, I will be in Worthington Wednesday through Sunday visiting my daughter’s family if you have time for a drink or whatever. While I’m nothing special I would bring the lovely and talented along.

For those keeping score, I grew up about one block from where ccgirl did although we may be separated time wise. I’m 63 and left the area in 1979.

TK, so glad to see you post. Trying to analyze Twitter twatter can definitely drive one crazy. We tend to follow those within our confirmation bias sphere. I purposely follow a few from the dark side to stay grounded. It pisses me off sometime. Want to pull your hair out? Look at @Johnheretohelp. He is “on our side”.

Mel, I love to take Chicago visitors to the Tribune Tower on Michigan Ave. not for the building but for amazing artifacts they have embedded in the facade. Harkens back to the day when it wasn’t prohibited to bring home souvenirs from your travels. Absolutely amazing. https://www.chicagoarchitecture.org/2013/03/05/pictures-of-all-149-rocks-stuck-on-the-tribune-tower/

For ccgirl, don’t give up! “Just posting another episode in “As the World Loses it.” Really enjoyed my two days at the beach, but I almost killed a few people before 10:30am. And I am just ranting here, but day to day life is getting difficult. The nuts in this town have closed off a third of the parking spots in the beach lots - not every other space, but a bunch on the left and a bunch on the right. So at 10:15 we were first in the waiting line for a space. For other reasons the town has been cracking down on having a waiting line at this particular beach (Pretty much agreed on that the jerks on the island past the lot don’t like the line of cars and are claiming it’s a safety issue in case an ambulance needs to get through) Anyway, young girl in a mask approaches us and says we can’t wait. I grumble that we know that but if we are next what’s a few minutes. Anyway she gets on her phone. So husband unloads our stuff and I drive home and bike back to beach. On the way some idiot walking his dog while in a mask steps into the street to avoid a woman on the sidewalk. I’m at least 30 ft away, and there’s a car in the other lane, and he starts pointing and yelling for me to get in the other lane. I was pretty stewed for the first hour. Plus had to talk to couple of lefty friends who arrived yesterday (after quarantining at home In VA for two weeks.) Later I was speaking with a pretty liberal acquaintance and she said she was behind us. A cop showed up and made all leave. She came back and waited in the turn around area, and told drivers behind her she was waiting for the cop to leave. Her words, “I am 61 years old and I am evading the police.” Just another day in paradise! But if I had any bad germs in my system I baked in the sun all day. I sucked up enough vitamin d to last for a long time. Skin cancer be damned at this point! Posted by: ccgirl | June 28, 2020 at 09:19 PM”

ccgirl, you posted the other night about growing up in Arlington. I grew up there leaving in 1979 for Wisconsin. Lived in the Jason St/ Gray street area.

Hey Gus, thanks for the kind words the other day. Looking forward to next meet and eat.

RR responding to Hirono: You packed a lot into that question. I hope you will allow me to answer the idea that I was involved in some conspiracy with the President, it is ridiculous. I have also seen posts (by Twitter sleuths I imagine) that RR would have gone the SC route to protect himself as any obstruction charge would come from Trump acting on RR’s recommendation to fire Corney. Weasel is as weasel does.

Mel, I’ve looked at those. Can’t shoot it in my backyard. The squirrels are now trained so that if they hear the bb’s rattle they run and hide on the far side of the trees surrounding the yard.

OL, Hope you are enjoying Nantucket. I get the feeling it’s your happy place. I love when we vacation in Duxbury, MA. While I now live in WI, I grew up in MA and my parents took us to the beach there every Aug for two weeks. They met on the beach there. Most of my siblings and I have late April, early May birthdays. 😉

Happier news, went to my local bar last night in Verona, WI. We’re in Dane County which implemented Ever’s safer at home BS immediately after the WI Supremes struck it down on the state level. Sparse crowd. Some of the regulars were no shows due to age/existing health issues. They are going to stay home until it is “safe”. So there are some friends I’ll never see again. ☹️

Wow hrt, I couldn’t imagine just dropping my wife off at the hospital for a major op. Not casting any shade towards you. I hate what we have allowed to be done to us.

Well MissM, now we hang Asian beetle traps around our yard to help our plantings. We catch them by the pound. And stink? Oh yeah.

Ralph, Wisconsin to Boston (and back!). Top down on the way out, top up on the ride back. She’s been a good car, no mechanical system problems but a couple of structural issues (broken frame component and a weld of a door hinge). No rust. Certainly not a Fix It Again Tony.

Since ShipWreckedCrew is so popular here is a recent snippet: I'm confident that Jeff Sessions thinks he did the only thing possible, and at the time he was convinced it was the right thing. But he was the Senate-confirmed AG. What he should have done was to say: "Before I made a decision on whether to recuse myself, I want a full briefing on what it was that started this investigation, and I want to know what it is you have accomplished to date." He was not a target. There was no risk to the investigation by briefing him. He could have then made judgment based on the actual investigation if his recusal was necessary, and he could have made a judgment whether the investigation was bona fide, or a politically inspired snipe hunt. Apparently you can be full of integrity and still screw up. Who knew?

DrJ, our summer fun car is a 1982 Fiat Spider convertible. 69K original miles. Take the battery out in the fall, put it back in the spring(charged). Starts right up. Sadly we don’t feel comfortable taking it far from home any longer. Should really sell it to some young pup that will use it and enjoy it.

My comment to TK was in response to him a couple of weeks ago... Funny story, I just walked into the living room and the dog was sleeping on the floor. I remembered something he had done a few weeks ago so I grabbed a magazine, rolled it up, and hit him with it while saying “bad dog”. I’m sure he got the message. The "we" applies to anyone here with class and integrity. Wow! We’ve all been warned. No dogs were injured while posting 😉
