I was going to blog on this the other night - I was working a night shift I don't normally come in, but the ICanHasCheezburger.com site was messed up severely, and it was just a little too busy to work out the problems. Anyway, Peggy Lee ma... Read more

Sunday, August 12, 2012      8 comments

And, the heat wave continues. Per Wipipedia, this was a war protest song by Jonathan Edwards from 1971 (Really? 'cause, I'm not getting that...) Every time someone in authority tries to give me unasked-for advice (like the fat doctor telling me ... Read more
You Are My Sunshine
Saturday, August 11, 2012      8 comments

When it's hitting at or near 100 degrees every day, it's hard to be happy about all the sunshine we get. But, in the dead of winter, it's nice to remember the hot days. From 1939 (!) The other night dear, as I lay sleeping I dream... Read more

It's hot, hot, hot here - I'm having to walk the pups starting about 7 or 7:30 every morning on my days off to get our long walks in (short walks of 1.5 miles on the mornings I get home from work). The Jamies from 1958 It's summerti... Read more
Mercedes Benz

Operator
