MP! and COS!
Chips and VC!!
And COS, doing roll call!
Somebody’s awake and happy!
I actually looked at that for a while before realizing what CC was talking about. (I’m always stunned for a bit when she changes the posting format! You’d think I’d be wise to her little idiosyncrasies by now. )
Spooky weird, it’s NOT just Amk and 99ts!!
I know, eh? I was wondering if you had slipped up a bit, oh blogmistresswiththemostest!
MightyP is the moral first on this post everyone – live with it.
YES I CAN! Moral First, y’all hearin’ that? Things can only get better!!
Did you check this out, VC? My day is officially made, heck, my holiday is officially made! Foine!
I noticed, Pamela, /hauteur/ but *I* will not be bought with stars and words like ‘moral’, especially when both are obvious bribery. If this makes you feel ‘made’, there’s not much else to be said. /nose lowered to normal position/
Moral is Moral, shakes out the same all over the world!!
/ nose promptly points upwards/ If that’s the way you see this ‘moral’ win, there’s no more to be said, I think. /resuming normal posture/
What are you doing up so late???? I was hoping to peek under the tree, or in your closet, to see if I only got the rubber turtle. I can’t believe that’s ALL you got me and Danny and that took an entire day to purchase.
My gaaaaaawd, how could anyone not be content with a turtle chew toy?????
/whisper – Don’t want to be ungrateful, but the colours were a bit off…..drab, you know./
It didn’t ……match, okay?
There’s still time, maybe you can exchange it for something more costly… more fun …. something MORE.
I’m assuming Amk is being the trouble maker. :-/
Hey, am I the only slow coach and/or the last to notice in the Early Bird Chat, PBO is actually, truly holding onto the railing while descending the steps off AF1?!
MightyPamela, I noticed it as well. Lord, thank you. He was also holding our beautiful First Lady’s hand tightly as well. HZ
Well, I WAS rushing to get a post together for the night owls, but Chips pipped me. It will be the third in my series of Xmas music chats, and will drop tomorrow night.
Ah, excellent, thank you soooooo much kind sir!
(Sure would like to see some snow).
Now, I’m off to make dinner. What, you ask? Well…
Flat iron steak, broiled
You DO know asparagus is my fave thing on earth, just ahead of scallops?
Even though it makes my pee smell funny, I LOVE asparagus. I have the missus to thank for getting me to eat veggies.
Mine too. Apparently it’s a genetic thing; some people have it, some don’t.
Hey LL, havin’ a lazy man Manhattan here!! Makers Mark, dash of Angusstoo-er-sumthin bitters and dry vermouth (don’t have sweet) and…..ice………………..and sip and…………… Hey LL!!
LOL. Hey magapie!!! How does the dry vermouth work with the bourbon?
It’s good!!! But I’m not ALL that discriminating……………………………………. Hey, so a traditional Manhattan is made with rye whiskey. What do you think about that? Not sure I’ve ever even tasted rye whiskey.
That’s one way to make a Manhattan. The rye makes it taste different, but equally yummy.
Congrats on 1st COS!!!
Really cool FP title, Chips
Off to prepare dinner as well …
LL, added a comment in response to yours – previous thread.

Paging a mod to row 27
And isn’t it funny … Chips named the post for amk and 99ts and they’re not here yet! Of course, the minute I refresh the page, they will be … in 3, 2, 1 …
Bob – My “not again” was meant for you … guessing you’re in moderation?
Thank you Jacqueline!! My comment still awaiting a moderator!!!
You got one two many tweets there, Bob. Only bt, as the author of this special thread (for me & 99ts), can release it.
They are trying to find you, bobr, you keep shifting places in the thread!! How’s the air up there, anyway? We all here in Morally First Class are enjoying special red Aussie Shiraz! (well, are about to!)
Hey MP, glad you are enjoying a lovely Shiraz!!! I’m still stuck with an empty glass
Still waiting …….
I’m definitely not going to post and cuss and holler the F-word and make inane comments and post St. Sammy Hagar music videos and talk about punching a cheney in the face or kickin’ rumsfeld in the …and…. NOPE! NO SIR! NOT GONNA DO IT.
Perfect spice combination for asparagus: garlic salt, garlic pepper (Lawry’s), and onion powder.
My mom sent me a meat grinder for christmakuh! I have been challenging myself lately to get as close to scratch as possible in everything that I cook. This opens a whole new dimension of possibilities in that effort.
Growing up one of my favorite things to do was watching my mom grind the meat for homemade croquettes. Yum.
I am as much of a novice as a guy can be. This is gonna be so fun!
It must have been a rough time for you. Having to eat fresh croquettes and all.
It was my cross to bear.
Ok, who broke the thread? Posts are not posting in the right order.
Jimmy Fallon and Paul McCartney are on SNL, if interested.
Good Night, folks; I’m at the end of my rope.
harrumph .. still waiting for 99ts to arrive to make the grand entrance
Well you didn’t wait long enough – busy day in the world down under
All right all, two Manhattans and I’m done. See everyone on the flip.

Over and out. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a thread dwindle away like this one, then again, I’m often one of the first to dwindle! This solstice was lovely; in a few more days we will see our steady gain of Light, and in a few more weeks we will know for sure the tunnel is behind us! Aloha!
Aloha everybody. Glad to see my First Family made it to Hawaii on time, without drama, and without the DC jackals hanging onto the airplane wings. Can’t wait to see vacay pics from what I hope is a relaxing and rejuvenating trip for them. They richly deserve it.

Great tweets, AMK! The lopsided difference between the amounts of money the world spends on killing (war) and the puny amount spent on eradicating poverty is obscene.

Yes WE MUST
Before departing … if you read Booman on this:
You will know why I sent this:
@SenatorMenendez Your #NEOCONSTER NONSENSE about Iran & Cuba should earn a STRONG Dem challenge like @SenatorBuono cc @SenatorReid @OFA_NJ— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) December 22, 2013
Yes We Can
Bob, thanks for sending me to Booman tribune on Menendez. Don’t want to brag (oh well, yes I do)……but that article and info underscore my position on why PBO chose HRC as SOS the first term and had to keep Kerry as chair of the Foreign Relations Committee! Kerry knew this. I’m wondering how Menendez is going to be handled……it seems to me he has the inferior man’s complex…..trying to look big.
Carolyn, we both felt this from Sen. Menendez. I really never liked the senator. I really do believe that POB is aware of this Menendez attitude on the Foreign Relations Committee as Chairman, and POB will watch him closely. And of course, POB has already given SOS Kerry the up on Chairman Menendez. Count on it. POB is sharp to the very point. Menendez, like you commented, Carolyn, ” trying to look big.” Exactly, but he better chill out. POB does not like people who are not team players. Team work has to be at the front. These people need to go back and listen to POB’s many speeches. He means what he has stated and will continue to do the same.HZ

Well,I held my end of the bargain. Let 99ts defend hers.
And that’s why you stay married
Woohoo – I made the headline – without being here! Good Morning everyone – you do realize I get 2 Christmas days – one in my world – and one on TOD. Life is good
OK this is WEIRD – I posted at the end of the thread & WP thinks 6.47am Dec 22 is before 11.06 PM Dec 21 – Only in America!
OK seems like WP is determined that Bobfr will get the last word on this thread

Hi Almaablanca – this is the weirdest thread – last time I was here Bobfr had comments at the botton & I couldn’t post below them – then I saw your post & everything is back in order. I am worried about my sanity, my vision or something??
Hmmmmm. So Chips Chica stayed up too late last night to get up all sprightly and EARLY this morning. Hmmmm. Or maybe she went for an EARLY walk and stick-tossing session? Hmmm.
Moooooooorning Early Birds!
Just between us, Chips, why do you still call it ‘Early Bird’ when the worms already went back into hiding? Maybe, a new name is in order when you are not early, like just ‘Birds’? What do you all think?
