Other thread was not up long enough
Congrats on #1!
It was almost at 250 comments Proud, which makes loading/refreshing painfully slow for a lot of people on the blog, that’s why I posted again.
Always considerate, that’s our wonderful Chips!
Hey you, Mr Bob, don’t be giving me a big head, I’ll be demanding a throne next!
Thought you already had indoor plumbing
Great comment Bob. So witty!!

That is WONDERFUL!!
Oh my, thanks for the retweet!
I just love looking at all those pictures. You have real talent. I can’t wait to click this blog everyday.
I owe you a real Texas Margarita or two. Drinks are on me.
Texas Margaritas? Mmmmmmmmmm ….. Proud, I’m on my way!!!
Like me, trying to type on the unforgiving predictive text which we love on iPad, but with tears streaming down my face… Oh what a night! Thank you dear Chips! I’m done in, this has been a very long 9 months.
If you mean the election cycle, Pamela, at least at the end of those long 9 months, we had a re-election!!!!!
I suppose so, JoB, but I meant more the past nine months I have been working 7 days a week; all through the re-election cycle, but that began for me in January 2010, when PBO asked us to start making the monthly auto-donate, which in 2011 became the OVF, and which I have all along been so proud to be part of! Wearing my Team2012 teeshirt right this moment!
You are a major part of Team2012 and I thank you for it!
it’s your dedication, and the hard work of so many like you, who have given so generously of time and money, that we can thank for pbo’s re-election. and we do thank you!!
Yes and now we have so much to do. This trip brought tears watching Our President surrounded by love and respect.
Wow, top 2. Congrats proud. 1st time I could log on today.
@Smoothscotch: I saw your comment a few threads ago saying you were born in Guyana. Such a nice surprise meeting you ~waves~:)

#ApologizeMcCain to #AmbRice, the families of those who died in Benghazi, in Iraq & on the decks of the USS Forrestal. You're LONG OVERDUE— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) November 21, 2012
And too long in the tooth, time to go when you become so bitter and obviously envious.
McCaiin should apologize to SOS Hilary Clinton, too, for ridiculing the President for sending her to intervene in the mess with Israel and that little slip of land, the Gaza strip. He should have sent a man, someone like Kissinger or even Bill Clinton. I’m so furious at him for that extremely stupid and purblind comment I wish I could give him a good slap up the side of the head. McCain is truly ready for the loony bin.
You know as a war hero who was imprison for five years, I want to have respect for John McCain, but I don’t. It is ashame what he has become, in my opinion a disgrace to our country. Yes I repeat it as often as I can, John McCain has become a senile bitter old man. And there is nothing to respect about that.
Yes I repeat it as often as I can, John McCain has become a senile bitter old man. And there is nothing to respect about that.
So, true. anniebella, SO TRUE. He really is bitter, disrespectful. Can you imagine how far back we would be if he would have been elected President? I shudder to think where we as a country would be…
Whew. THANK YOU GOD and everyone who voted for President Barack Obama!!!
Sadly, John McCain has become a senile, bitter old man, and there is nothing to respect about that. [h/t Annieb]— Vick C. (@sonamie) November 21, 2012
Where the hell is his daughter, if not the wife?, he’s making a total fool of himself.
He really needs a family intervention. His friends are too busy sucking up to him.
Furthermore, the word of the President was not good enough for McCain, Graham et al. Nor was the word of Susan Rice. It took Petraeus to comment before they believed the truth. Once again, they disrespect THIS President.
Have at it proud, and bobfr! Never let up, oh relentless one! You will make twitter history, I’m sure of I!
Top 20!! Woohoo!
I clicked off Lawrence…I am not an Ezra fan. They had another Clintonite with CAP…..saying something I don’t quite think I heard right. They would save Medicare for Middle and low income families but somethings will change. Did anyone hear the same. Are the trying the “Means” testing and making this another Welfare program?
I miss Lawrence too. Sorry Ezra.
Hey me too. I DVD Martin & Rev Al so watching them, doing homework & on here.
Hey I can walk & chew gum.
I only record Martin and Rev. Al and MHP, but once in a while watch “the others.” Until they frost me!
The Means testing is on the Wealthy, not a bad idea if that is what is being proposed.
Isn’t the means testing a way for the GOP to eliminate all contributions by the wealthy, eventually? It sounds like a Trojan horse.
I agree. Means testing has a way of creeping down the income scale.
Chips, even though it would be hard for you to compose a book or a calendar I must say I do love the way you dig up these pictures! You are da’ BOMB!
da’ BOMB! .com!!
Amen vitaminlover and isonprize!
OK , Chips, since we can’t get the book or the calendars from you well….how about a quarterly magazine?
what i reeeeeeally want for christmas is a tod tee shirt! yes i do!
That would be sooooooo cool!
Good riddance if it happens. http://t.co/toGXeQyp— (@amk4obama) November 21, 2012
It won’t happen. I saw some expose on “seceding” and I think it’s been tried by oddballs many times before. Unfortunately, these creeps will never leave us in peace.
What I appreciate about this cartoon and others like it is the enduring image of the tri-corner hat with the tea bag hanging from it. The Tea Party did itself a great disservice by allowing itself to be branded this way. It just won’t go away and rivals the dirty hippie image as a lasting form of mockery.

Population of Angrywhitemenistan: Who cares!
When POTUS leave for out of country trips there is talk of keeping him in prayer. I just want to say I hope we do that for our top notch Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. After traveling with the President to Asia, she hops on the plane to head to the middle east. Not a easy job she has. She has done a dam outstanding job as our S.O.S. Proud of her also.
Anniebella, thanks for your comments. I think it is important to keep the entire Cabinet of POB’s Administration in meditation and prayers. I keep a list of names in my prayer/meditation box and call out names in my meditation times. You are so right, they all have such great responsibilities on their shoulders to carry for this nation and nations all around the world. Plus, we might want to keep their families in our quiet/meditation/prayer time as well.
Thanks for reminding us. I was shopping for a couple of items today, and I had the opportunity twice to talk with my saleperson about the importance of the results of our election. She was so sweet and was quiet attentive. She asked me about the ACA and medicare for her parents, and I also included Pell Grants as well.
I still think it is important to talk with people and get and keep them involved with what POB is trying to do in his second term. I told her that getting him re-elected was very important , but we must stay abreast of what he is trying to accomplish for us. Then I spoke to the cashiers behind the counters. They were all nodding their heads, and I always ask them to pray for his Administration and our Congress.
So we can keep up our prayers for all of his administration and share when appropriate how we lift them up in our quiet/devotional time. She mentioned about her non-religion, and I gently told her to speak good thoughts into her space as a good and grateful human being for another beautiful spirit such as POB’s. She said that she had never thought of it in that way.
I will never impose my beliefs onto anyone, but I just try to tell them to speak into the universal space what is good in their thought pattern. They seem to appreciate that in my conversations with them. It was a lovely day as well with my water shop person. He is 18 and we had been talking for months, as I would go in to get my water. He was so happy today. He greeted me with a great smile and much conversation about President Obama’s victory. He said he talked with his parents after we would have our talks, and they
voted for POB this time.
We still have work to do, and we will have to get behind Jim Messina and team and follow through with that survey that they sent out yesterday. POB realizes that his team is still with him and he has sent it up to come to us. Take it to the people, and we will be here for him. So let us lift up(in our own personal and private manner) each other and all of POB’s team and Cabinet. (((((( Thanks for the reminder, Annibella))))
I love my TOD Family! You guys are AWESOME! Thank you anniebella! Thank you HZ!
couldn’t agree with you more! Keeping it front and center will keep us energized to continue to help the President. (Although maybe not as many hours as I was doing. Must have a home life )
Umm, Senator Demint put a hold on the FAA Nominee, because if Romney won he would have a chain to nominate his own Guy.
Well, Romney lost, and the FAA dude is still on Hold.
I just don’t understand Demint, at all. Not that the FAA is important or anything? LOL!
Every time I hear a story like that, my blood pressure just goes through the roof. These GOP have done so much damage to this country. There are no words to describe my disgust.
Senate needs to reform filibuster rules NOW!! No more unlimited or anonymous holds! I’m so sick of this crap. We need serious representatives doing the people’s work!!
DeMin was the first guy I ever wrote a letter too. I don’t even remember what nonsense he was spewing I just remember being ticked off enough to email him. ugh.
The last post ended so quickly (although, i was very late…), and it was so heavenly to come home and find that entire collection of memories. My favourite trip is definitely Moneygall – that was just heart-pleasing. Is it just me, or does the video no longer play because of some copyright issues? That was my favourite video of all time – the music was just perfect, and the images brought tears to my eyes each time. My next favourite is India. The people were so excited, and it was wonderful staying up all night following the events – they fell in love with Michelle. I recall that it was after some major battle, and we all needed the cheering up. Lastly (although, every single trip has been completely amazing) is the Nobel Peace Prize – because that was all about giving credit to President Obama for his potential, and his life of work in nuclear non-proliferation and his vision for a peaceful world – and the candle-light event was just touching and unexpected. It’s really hard to narrow it down to just three – they’ve all been incredible.
Wait till POTUS and FLOTUS take Malia and Sasha to Moneygall, I think they will fall in love with them also. I hope on some of POTUS up coming trips he will be able to take the girls with him and FLOTUS. What a thrill that would be for them and for the people of the country. It would be a learning experience for them too. Let me add this in, I loved the trip FLOTUS took with the girls to South Africa where they met Nelson Madella.
I absolutely loved that trip to South Africa – I think I watched Michelle’s speech about six times.
Lawd! Lawd! Lawd! Allen West spent $17 Million Dollars on his campaign! What In the Hell?!!!
At $17 million, Allen West spend the most money on a House race ever. And lost. politico.com/news/stories/1…— Andrew Kaczynski (@BuzzFeedAndrew) November 21, 2012
jeebus. Where did he get all that money ?
I have no idea. Tried to see if this info was in article but I didn’t see it. Maybe I missed it. Completely insane to spend that much money on a House race.
Tea Party – they said he was a fundraising machine. I guess all that crazy talk pays off! Although, in the end, it didn’t…
fools and money and all that. I love it these fuckers lost it and lost it so big.
They didn’t learn from the California experiment!
Michelle Bachmann is also a fundraising powerhouse. It’s strange, though, that the wackiest members of Congress can delude so many into contributing to their campaigns. It leads me to believe that wacky knows wacky.
They feel accepted.
Koch Brothers, perhaps? Sounds fishy, and he was certainly no catch.
A toon tweet for twits. http://t.co/7NOgfpG7— (@amk4obama) November 21, 2012
UK recognises Syria opposition coalition
London says National Coalition is the sole legitimate representative of the Syrian people.
What irks me about the situation in Syria is Iran butting in and calling for Assad to remain in power. Assad has oppressed and killed his own citizens. He reminds me of Gaddafi. IMHO, it’s past time for him to step down.
Don’t forget, according to Romney, Syria is Iran’s route to the sea.
Only 6 states where Obama currently has *more* votes than his ’08 totals: LA, MD, MS, NC, SC, VA. Common thread? African-Americans. It looks likely majority of country’s 2-3 million uncounted ballots are in New York (-19.08% off 2008 total) CA: Los Angeles Co. just reported 93,470 new Obama votes, 30,271 Romney. Romney down to 47.55% nationally this is going to be some serious poetic justice when Romney ends up w/ 47% of the national vote! https://t.co/jCy2jAEZ
btw Chips I fixed my tweetdeck come join the best twitter feed INDAWORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just followed, too.
Just followed you.
welcome to the wormhole you may never escape……….
I am familiar with wormholes. I hear the one outside Bajor is really quite something.
Swoon!!!! Real American Idols!
WASHINGTON – As part of the Obama Administration’s all-of-the-above strategy to deploy every available source of American energy, the Energy Department today announced an award to support a new project to design, license and help commercialize small modular reactors (SMR) in the United States. This award follows a funding opportunity announcement in March 2012. The project supported by the award will be led by Babcock & Wilcox (B&W) in partnership with the Tennessee Valley Authority and Bechtel. In addition, the Department announced plans to issue a follow-on solicitation open to other companies and manufacturers, focused on furthering small modular reactor efficiency, operations and design.
“The Obama Administration continues to believe that low-carbon nuclear energy has an important role to play in America’s energy future,” said Secretary Chu. “Restarting the nation’s nuclear industry and advancing small modular reactor technologies will help create new jobs and export opportunities for American workers and businesses, and ensure we continue to take an all-of-the-above approach to American energy production.”
This project represents a significant investment in first-of-a-kind engineering, design certification and licensing for small modular reactors in the United States. Through a five-year cost-share agreement, the Energy Department will invest up to half of the total project cost, with the project’s industry partners matching this investment by at least one-to-one. The specific total will be negotiated between the Energy Department and Babcock & Wilcox (B&W).
Chips, all the memories from those wonderful trips we took with the President makes it hard to choose which ones I like the best. The top 2 are Ireland and speaking in front of Parliment. After that it is hard to choose. They are all so special. Thank you for keeping the memories for all of us!
I loved the previous post with all his foreign trips. The thing that really warmed my heart and made me smile.. is that President Obama brought ‘hugging’ to the world stage and made it okay and not awkward… something that you never really saw World Leaders do before.. but who now do it. It’s a beautiful thing to see I love seeing World Leaders embrace each other like this and looking forward to the hug they get from President Obama. PBO is a great example to Leaders.. he has softened many hearts since being President.
I was actually thinking this same thought a few days ago – that the hugging phenomenon among the world leaders was introduced by President Obama. And I noticed that women seem to feel comfortable being very feminine around President Obama, and not feeling that their authority will be diminished as a result. They all feel very comfortable.
The Obama Effect – bringing hugs and smiles to leaders the world over. If he did absolutely nothing else, that in itself would be a pretty smashing legacy.
Secretary Chu keeps trying cold fusion, almost there, keep trying-
With the campaign going on, I had lost track of Secretary Chu, but I deeply respect and admire the man. And his brain.
We’re gonna do it. It’s coming!

These “both sides do it” folks just make me tired. That article is ludicrous.
Its one of those “See, I’m/They’re Not Crazy/Stupid, Obama does/said it Too” articles.
Good night all, I have a busy day tomorrow, I have to start preparing for family coming home for Thanksgiving, lots and lots of cooking. Oh well, Lord give me the strength. Night all.
Good night, Anniebella – good luck with all the preparations.

The last thread was so beautiful – it was overwhelming. The pictures, videos, lovely comments all reminded me that we have a lot to be thankful for
Indeed, hopefruit. President Obama has worked so hard, and represented this country with such pride and grace. Everyone should be proud.
Absolutely, theo! In my humble opinion, when it comes to international attitudes towards the United States, President Obama fulfilled his pledge of bringing us “Change We Can Believe In.”
So true. And so much more.
ok people this is the most inspiring video you will probably see in a long time, an afghan refugee designing a mine sweeper from childhood toys
What that is amazing! What ingenuity! What’s that saying? Necessity is the mother of invention! Wow!
a wonderful example of the creative mind, using play to power innovation–and save lives. thanks itjustcomes!
just a comment about these pundits who are falling all over themselves …looking for a kindler…gentler Repub….or the pundits who seem surprised that altho the Repubs lost the White House and some seats in Congress….they have not gone quietly in the night…and they will not.,,,,.just as they do not accept the President as legitmate….they do not accept my vote….our votes as something that they have to heed…this is why the President has not dismantled OFA….there is a lesson that we must learn…..RIGHTS WON MUST BE DEFENDED…..that we must ever keep our marching shoes on…in order to move our country forward…
as Maddow would say…look at the policy….on one hand you have alot of words ….about what GOP must do….to appeal to this group and to that group ……but look at the policy…in Ohio they are moving forward with a law on personhood…Walkerin Wisconsin talking about coming up with even more odious voter suppression law…West not wanting to concede the election,…..not to mention those states that are fighting tooth and nail the implementation of the Health Care Law….
This is what happens when the GOP is in charge…make no mistake about it…this will not change….This is who they are……they will always fight to take my rights…… to take your rights away…to relegate us to 2nd class citizenship….
I will not let them!
WE MUST STAY VIGILANT!!
gonna miss PBO touchdown…..eyes heavy
What a lovely end to the day. A safe and productive trip for the President, lots of pictures to see of him then and now and Sandra getting the best revenge of all…a good education ready to take it out into the world.
ladies and gentleman our future Barack Obama
He is AWESOME!
What ho TOD Peeps! Happy Two Week Election Day Anniversary! Still partying over here. LIke Jim Messina, I’m trying to become an expert in red wine! Woot!
Two weeks ago today, yes a mere 14 days ago(!), we and our illustrious Prez made history and the PAR-TAY was underway. But not one to rest on those historical accomplishments achieved only 14 DAYS ago, our illustrious Prez (and SOS Clinton) has gracefully commanded the world stage these past 3 days, reaffirming the headline from an international paper two weeks ago: “OBAMA WINS; PLANET RELIEVED!”
As we enter this official season of gratitude and thankfulness here in the States, I am grateful:
1) that I stumbled across this oasis and community. I have learned and continue to learn so much from all of you here. Miz Chips I have officially run out of superlatives for you. You NEVER disappoint as your latest coverage of PBO’s EPIC trip demonstrates. So I will simply say (AGAIN), THANK YOU;
2) that I am alive at this particular time in this country to watch (and help where I can) our illustrious Prez truly move this country FORWARD and that much closer to realizing her greatness as well as for all her citizens; and
3) Our President, First Lady, the girls who have become such lovely young ladies before our very eyes, First Pup BO, VP Biden, Dr. Jill Biden, and that dang SHIRT!
Salut! A Safe and Happy Thanksgiving to all those here at TOD who celebrate this holiday. May it be filled with family, friends, food, laughter and love. Now let’s get to cookin’
Purpleshoesla, thank you for all your hard work in helping re-elect our great President. I wish you and your family a Very Happy Thanksgiving.
Beautiful comments, purpleshoesla. Thank you so much. Have a great time and really enjoy all of the wonderful beauty of the place and the people.
I like your “Official Gratitude and Thankfulness” and thanks for sharing them with us. I love all three.
I purchased a beautiful large candle to place in my space at home for the beginning of POB’s second term. It will remind me of just how thankful and grateful I am to be a part of this great family and to have Chips as a most beautiful soul in this space.
Thank you and enjoy your trip.((((((((((((((((( Lots of joyful times on your trip.)))))))))))))))))HZ
Beautiful comments, dear purpleshoes!!!
Happiest of Thanksgivings to you and your family!
Yes We Can
aloha to you and your family purpleshoes. thank you for saying so beautifully what is in my heart!
Purpleshoes, you summed it up for all of us. Thank you. May I also add that I’m thankful for you and everyone who contributes to this remarkable place. All the words of wisdom and encouragement, all the love that pours out every day as we support each other is just overwhelming. This whole last year would have been a nightmare without this community. We all have full hearts this Thanksgiving for our president and for each other.
Salut! Back at you Purpleshoes! Wonderful comments and a Happy Thanksgiving to you! With PBO back on board there is much to be grateful for!
I am sitting here in a vigil for President Obama’s return. I am thinking that there may be no coverage of that, have mercy. Enough “coverage” of our leader. So: I’ll hold it all in light and freedom and ease and safety. Love to all of you.
I was looking all over for some live coverage, as well. He was supposed to arrive at 12:45 EST – so he must be home by now. Still checking.
Where’s my President?
Is he home yet? Home yet? IS HE HERE YET??
PBO is home, I saw some dark photos. We can go to sleep now.
Yes. He’s home. Now we can get some rest. http://www.austin360.com/videos/ap/raw-obama-lands-at-andrews-afb/vhmJq/
SUPER VIDEO!!! Yes, He’s Home!!!!
oh – thank you for this. I’ve been scouring the internet for a picture, something… Now I can sleep, too.
Yay! Home safe! I’m off to bed too!
Good night everybody!

woot! she did such a terrific job in welcoming and hosting the president, and in tweeting too! thanks for sending her tod’s greetings, dudette.
whoa awesome Dudette!
Is anyone still up?
helllooooooo almablanca–yes i’m up, but just got back from re-reading the earlier comments, poring over the wonderful photos chips posted, and watching the videos i missed during the day. whew! finally caught up!
is it too late to report that my favorite pictures are the ones where pbo is greeting the troops? they love him, and he gives them sincere respect and friendship. it’s beautiful to see.
oh, and in case chips is watching, i do soooo love the ireland pix. oh yes, ireland pix are best! (no mankini no no noooooo!)
Hi Chips, My broadband couldn’t handle the last post AND let me log in, so here I am. Yes! Ireland #1 !! And the President is coming back for visit #2. I know, it is Fermanagh, but maybe he will take some extra time and see more of the Republic who would like to see more of him, and Michelle, and the kids.
Happy Thanksgiving over there everyone.
happy thanksgiving to you, too! veep biden said recently he wants to travel to ireland as well–he has family there he hasn’t met, and also i think he’s heard there might be some tasty beverages…. anyway, here’s hoping they can visit you together!
Oh, Susanne, I don’t think the island could either handle or recover from having the Biden’s and the Obama’s here at the same time. Besides they deserve separate trips. Tasty beverages? Tasty beverages? Buttermilk from Irish cows grazing on tasty Irish grass?
only for health purposes, of course!
Hello OSG and Susanne.. went away cause I thought no one was home. I come back and what do I see?????? Nice pic. Happy thanksgiving to everyone.
bed time for me! keep the lights on for the morning crowd!
Suzanne, thank you for keeping the lights on for us. It’s 7:30 in SE PA and the day is looking bright and clear. So much to do pre-Thanksgiving, but I’m glad our president is home safe and sound. Hope he got a lot of sleep on AF1.
You did good. I am working. It’s an easy stay up. sleep well.
Wonderful lady representing small business – telling morning Joe his information is WRONG – a joy to listen to her.
She says they WANT the ACA – they are happy with the tax on those over 250,000, they are NOT wanting part time hours for their staff

Yesterday, cease fire was imminent! Then Clinton goes to Israel talks to the Nut and now I read the 2 sides are far apart.
The Nut did it again! When will everybody learn, this guy wants the end of times and Janas is giving Him an opportunity?
I don’t believe ANYTHING I read or hear from the US News media (or elsewhere) on this situation right now. The only thing I believe are direct words coming from either sides in the form of live pressers or interviews with parties involved. The situation is still volatile and changing by the hour and news reports tend to be mostly propaganda and agenda-driven at this point.
Haertz is reporting A bus just blew up in Tel Aviv killing 21. Also, Iran says to all Arab Nations to Arm the Palestinians.
Now, I don’t know what any of this means but it sounds pretty bad
Good Morning Everyone! Here’s a little traveling music for those of you braving the roads & airways today & throughout the weekend!
I wish you Safe Travels & and a deliriously Happy Thanksgiving!
Hiya dudette! G’morning and Happy Thanksgiving to you
Hey Hopefruit! Thank you darling! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
GM, Dudette, are you traveling today? If yes, eyes on the road and senses alert – no boogeying while you drive. Have a good day!
Hi VC! I’m blessed to have all my immediate family within minutes of me. No more airports or long road trips for me. I’m free to boogie at will!
If you’ve gotta make a trip, be careful out there! Love you!
Love you back, Dudette! I’m going no further than the local hardware stores to price baseboards. I actually stirred myself last month to go to a friend for our Thanksgiving, because she invited me every holiday and I always had a ‘reason’ not to go. Now, I’m good for another long while. I hate the fuss of all these special ‘holidays’. I am a firm believer in doing everything quietly and with a minimum of fuss.
Good morning TOD family. Chips, you have done it again!
I keep going over all the photos and smiles and heartfelt glee just fills my space. Thank you.
So glad PBO arrived home safely and maybe it was the video, but he sure had a lot of pep in his step…..it looks like no jet lag to me.
So much energy with all that he has to do and the evil he has to contend with.
I just want you to know I posted a while back that Ireland’s visit was my number one. The love, the crowd! It was so right after what these fools MSM and Congress were doing over here. They needed that. We needed it for them. He could not keep his hands off Michele, trying to warm her from the chilly weather. And the introduction…..well, I was smiling so much, you thought I was there. It still makes me smile because these closed minded, hearts of stone, stiff necked people are afraid of change.
Thank God those whose hearts are filled with love embrace and receive this change are moving FOWARD.
Thank you, Chips.
I agree completely LDS… let’s have a little old fashioned Irish music in honor of that trip!
Good morning, Dudette. I’d I ever tell you, YOU ARE THE BOMB!
Nobody does it better….
Morning O’s!!!!! Another great getting up day today in TODville. I’m a happy cookemom. #1 and the two grandkids are making their way home to share in our thanksgiving blessings. I have much to do, before the big day. So if I don’t get on to see yous, have a great week of Thanksgiving all!
Doesn’t get any better than that cookemon! Enjoy! Have a great Thanksgiving!
Have a great day everybody! I’m to off slave for a few hours over a computer, than home to slave over the stove!
Good morning everyone. So glad our President home safe.
Morning…and happy prep day! The day before Thanksgiving! Off work today, though I do have to take some time out of my day to tutor one of my students…and make some phone calls…but other than that, I’m here and will be getting ready for tomorrow! I love this holiday. No expectations other than the turkey better not be dry (mine NEVER i!) though this year…no turkey for me. Husband is out of town so the kids and I will be having cornish game hens, stuffed with wild rice…and all the fixin’s for Thanksgiving:)
Thought I would share THIS bit of good news that the MSM will never mention: http://twitpic.com/bf3ogf
Our deficit is falling faster now than any time since WWII….I think this might be a good R/T…..hugs to all my fellow TOD family…..and especially to Ms Chips…..love you and thanks for all the delicious goodness of that superlative photo diary! I can’t pick a favorite. Anywhere he is, with whomever he is with spreading smiles and warmth…is my favorite!
Good Morning everyone and a Happy Thanksgiving to you all. I am so excited as my hubby and I are heading off to Tucson to spend Thanksgiving with our daughter there. She got a job, so has to work and so we are bringing the turkey and all the trimmings to her apartment and cooking there. I love road trips so I am looking forward to getting away.
