Since the day I was having breakfast with my daughter and my cousin and uncle walked in the restaurant, we’ve been meeting every Thursday morning for breakfast. My cousin Trish brings her dad, sometimes her sister and niece, and today her son showed up, who went from a toddler the last time I saw him to a grown man. Trish also brought her latest romantic interest, and of course Uncle Roger is always there, grinning from ear to ear anticipating the memories.
It’s just breakfast, a seemingly innocuous thing, but it means the world to two old men I love dearly. Part of today’s discussion was the produce we raised on the farm and how Granny canned and froze everything. Then the price of produce today was compared to what it was back then. Roger talked about milking their old cow Lulabelle when he was a boy. Uncle Bob reminisced about an old Mercury he used to drive. Just idle chat with a bunch of old men. We all go dutch, since being cheap… uh… thrifty is a trait that is prevalent in our family. Thursday has become my favorite day of the week.
I GOTTA GET ME SOME OF THAT TACT STUFF
“President Obama says he gave Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a stern talking to during a recent phone call — chastising him for his tough stance on the creation of a Palestinian state.” http://nypost.com/2015/03/22/obama-i-scolded-netanyahu-over-the-phone-about-palestine/
I remember when BHO was all sneery and “I won.” Now he’s telling Bibi, “It don’t matter that you won”? Riiiiiiiiiiiiiight. AS IF Bibi gives a flying finger what Barack Hussein THINKS about ANYTHING.
All I can do with this one is point you to NiceDeb’s excellent article yesterday on the REAL reason President Obama has not been helping the Nigerian government of Christian President Goodluck Jonathon to fight Boko Haram. I’ll give you the money lines from her article:
What do you suppose has been behind the Obama Regime’s abject refusal to help this ally fight terrorists?
Would you believe that there’s a presidential election coming up in Nigeria, and Obama’s favored Muslim candidate is in a tight race against the Christian President Goodluck Jonathan?
And would you further believe that a political consulting group founded by Obama confidante David Axelrod is assisting that candidate – Retired Gen. Muhammadu Buhari – who hails from Muslim-dominated northern Nigeria from whence Boko Haram was spawned?
That’s right. Obama is using your tax dollars to influence yet another election to benefit muslim activist control, this time in Africa. In doing so, he’s profoundly HELPING Boko Haram and contributing to the abduction, forced conversions and deaths of thousands of African Christian children. How do you feel about that?
