On This Day: President Barack Obama pets Bo, the Obama family dog, in the Oval Office, June 21, 2012. (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza)
That one ALWAYS cracks me up!!
I know. I still haven’t figured out its virtue. :) :)
;) ;) Do *you* know what that one’s supposed to convey….really?
Well, context is everything.
On my phone where the background is white, there’s an exclamation point above the head. Given what you’re responding to, you’re not saying you have an idea, it’s more like expressing exasperation — as in “What the…?!!!”
On my PC, the background is black, so you can’t see the exclamation about the head. It looks like the face is peeking over a fence as in “In see what you’re doin’… I got my eyes on you.”
So it works either way! :-)
Okey-dokey, my sleuth extraordinaire! :)
and vc complains about my inglish / smh
Danny-my-boy speaks his own language (Dannglish?) He has never made any pretense, or claims, that he was speaking anything else.
WHY is my first response to you here awaiting moderation??? Are you fiddling with the system? Chiiiiips! *i* HAVE NEVER been moderated here before!! I want a lawyer!
:lol: WordPress decided to put you in pending, wise people!!
Only my answer to Amk on the subject of ‘vc complains’. I don’t get it, which is why I figured Amk was using some form of trickery, or bertcertland magic!
He’s too busy scraping pizza off his tie, VC, to get up to any WP trickery :roll:
May be, CC, but I’m not convinced of his innocence. Too much of a coincidence that the one time I get slapped with a wet red ribbon, is when I was talking to Amk, and suddenly he’s out-a-sight scraping pizza ( which everyone knows uses oodles of red sauce). Hmmmm.
And why is he even wearing a *tie* in bertcertland? It simply does not add up for me.
It’s a shock to your system, isn’t it vc
You better believe it was! I never realized that they flash this red message across your screen when your comment is in moderation – good thing my heart is in fairly good condition. Phew!
Me too! I expected the NSA to be knocking my door down any minute!!! And I was at work :shock:
Don’t even care what place I’m in. Just glad to be in the heeeeezy! :-)
Love this picture of the coolest Prez of the United Steezy! :-)
On today, we’re petting and hugging Danny!
off to watch messi mess it up. (don’t break out the hooplas yet. will still be peeping in now and then)
If the match is terrible and you fall asleep, you’ll miss your flight, right?
Grandson had a heat incidence & we are hoping he will graduate. The training squads have been posting daily pictures of these young recruits. Some of them are hilarious. He is back in the field so we are hoping he was able to catch up & graduate. Graduation is tomorrow 9:am Cst. Early rising for sure. Glad I am in TX to see this. Just got on a computer today to try & catch. Have to that when I get home. Been liking tho.
Hi to everyone. Have a glorious weekend.
Hope he’s okay and everything works out, Roberta! Have a splendid weekend! Stay cool!
Thank you Dudette. He was back out in the field yesterday. Fingers crossed . It’s hit in TX. My son lives in Killeen & we have to drive 45 mn to where his celebration is going to take place. Thank God they are having it inside instead of outside like planned. Once on Post we have to drive to Gatesville. Have never been there yet. 😳 Fort Hood is a humgus place.
Roberta, tell grandson & everyone else, stay hydrated!
Thank you Gail.

Excited to campaign with @Senator_Hatch, @BruceBraley, @AppelforIowa, and @iowademocrats this weekend. http://t.co/bp4y8xtR3z— Martin O'Malley (@GovernorOMalley) June 20, 2014
I really, really like this man!
Me too Dudette, and I like his slogan…”Better Choices, Better Results”
My heart did a little flutter when I read that!
He doesn’t have to say a word to do that to mine. :-)
Now, now……Do we need a whole ‘nother storage room of naughty mats? We already have one for PBO and VPJoe….
Paging Dr. Yardarm!!
In a word: YES! :-D
Be forewarned, just as with Wet POTUS, when they whip out that picture (or video) of him in the sleeveless shirt playing the guitar again… um, let’s just say, the squeeee will be intense! :-)
YA, hung up the keys while he takes a mini break. I think if you gals are going to add O’Malley to the list you will need another storage room. :roll:
Uh oh, we need mats…
Having a great time. MT @LoudAndLiberal: @HeavenAndBalder TY 4 indulging political geeks of Iowa with ur visit! http://t.co/ENHiwQgnET— Martin O'Malley (@GovernorOMalley) June 21, 2014
Yes, yes, yes! :-)
I hope he runs in 2016. I’d vote for him in a hot second over HRC
so would I df
Hey TODers! Me too df. Love my Gov. A really good guy. I want to see him in the primary.
He’s knocking it out of the park in Iowa this weekend. Great speechifying, connecting with locals in their public places, shaking a lot of hands, introducing his family.
More of this, please. I hope he encourages others to do the same!

Well, gotta say I love THAT message. Sounds like a winning message to me!
Now this is what bugs me! Here are some sensible tweets with exactly the right content, featuring an excellent potential candidate and they get a handful of retweets. Hillary/Bill throw out a self-centred comment and it gets ‘tons’ of retweets. We need to step up our game for the meaningful tweets/tweeters IMO.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS MAN,
Good morning, Jackie! Let’s hope we have a real race.
What we've been waiting for, @GovernorOMalley ! A DEM campaigning for other DEMS! @Senator_Hatch @BruceBraley @AppelforIowa @iowademocrats— (@JOBoomr) June 21, 2014
Great tweet JOB!
Last one…this one has some sizzle :) It’s TImberlake, so…hot comes with the package:)
I see what you did there.
Love me some JT!
well, argentinians fluffing up chance after chance.
And if I’d had time this morning I would have put $100000000 on Iran keeping them scoreless for 30 mins. Drat.
RT @elfincharms Happy first day of Summer, my friends. http://t.co/QjcthIPTMk— Dudette (@Dudette9t9) June 21, 2014
what’s with the footballers and weird hair-dos’?
there they go again. #sloppyfinish
Oops! I didn’t see your Summer Breeze before I posted. Great minds….. :D
No worries! Good music is always worth replaying. :-)
lol @ how the entire iranian team goes after the ball. funnily, it proving to be effective frustrating the arges
I wish I could vote for Sonia Sotomayor for something. #YesIKnow— meta (@metaquest) June 21, 2014
now the iranians fluff it.
Flip, what a chance!
You two are horrible play by play announcers LOL!
:lol: There have hardly been any plays to report GGail, Argentina have been TERRIBLE – and they would have been expected to beat Iran by, oh, six-ish goals! 0-0 at half-time.
Well, NW faults me for not following the games, I’m blaming the announcers!
Nerdy is right, you’re a disgrace for not watching the games GGail – I feel like all our soccer/football evangelizing has been TOTALLY wasted on you.
boooring. going to bed.
Hey, wait! What’s that site that helps you put 2 or 3 pics in one again? I’m ready for step 2.
He’s probably snoring now, VC. Do you mean in a tweet?
If you do —>
Just click ‘Add more’ and you can include four pics.
Reeeaaally? And they show as ‘one’? That’s it? And I’ve been building up courage to venture forward all this time…and this is it? /smh/
:lol: They show up like this, and when you click each pic they enlarge:
and when you click each pic they enlarge:
What do you know!!! :grin: :grin: I’m searching for a 4th pic to complete my ‘picture’. Can’t wait to see the done deal. Will share it here, of course!
Ssshhhh. Am concentrating deeply on the task for the next little while.
Here you go with attempt #1

Well done! Excellent tweet too! :-)
Bowing and :oops: -ing TY, I had a terrific teacher (and a new tool in hand). :)
Hmm my Twitter doesn’t have the “Add More” feature. Plus my buttons are red.
Really Zizi? That’s weird – hey TOD, anyone know why this is??
I dunno but I don’t have it either. And up until a couple of weeks ago I couldn’t add more photos. Now I can just keep clicking on the camera icon and it works.
twitter = *&%#!
It’s as temperamental as WordPress!
My twitter button didn’t say ‘Add More’ either, Zizi, but following the teachings of the Great Diva of Blogdom, I simply clicked the camera each time I wanted to add another pic and it accepted it. I didn’t even notice the colour to be truthful.
He did say he falls asleep quickly. Sigh!
Yes, ma’am. I have 2/3 FLOTUS pics I want to put in one for a tweet.
Well Thank you, CC /swallows/, I’m off to try it. Don’t send the rescue team until I’ve had enough time to try more than once.
I’ve been saying gunnite to you for hours now.
So gunnite, sleep tite. Don’t let Glen Greenwald bite!

Hopeful development …
Afghan Leader Backs U.N. Election Role
“KABUL, Afghanistan — Seeking to quell a political crisis surrounding the June 14 election to choose his successor, President Hamid Karzai reversed course on Friday and suggested that the United Nations get involved in helping Afghanistan settle disputes over the voting.
In a meeting with Jan Kubis, the United Nations special envoy for the country, Mr. Karzai said the involvement of the international organization would be “a good step toward ending the problems, because any organization that can help Afghanistan in this issue is appreciated,” according to a statement from his office.
Until now, Mr. Karzai had dismissed any suggestion that Afghanistan needed help running the election, and said that foreigners should stay out of the country’s politics.”
Thanks Bob. Is Karzai doing self-preservation? I never trust his motivations
Probably more self-motivated than anything else, but, in this case, he’s doing the right thing.
Thanks for the feedback Bob.
Sly and the Family Stone
I love the way that Gov O’Malley is so unapologetically supportive of our President. No hedging with ambiguous platitudes…no trying to “distance” himself from PBO, no saying crap to please the MSM or reinforce their silly & false memes about PBO being unpopular…
The patriots who made America great did not pray for their president to fail, they prayed for their president to succeed. #IADems— Martin O'Malley (@GovernorOMalley) June 21, 2014
He’s the real deal, for sure, hf.
And I know Joe would do the same thing and Deval, as well.

Looks like others are sharing my positive ideas about Gov O’Malley as well. :)

Good Saturday morning folks. Happy 1st day of summer from Cali. It’s going to be 90 degrees in my neck of the woods!

Indeed he did! RT @dpleasant: Based on what's coming across on Twitter, Martin O'Malley is giving (gave?) a pretty good speech in Iowa.— Lis Smith (@Lis_Smith) June 21, 2014
We need this new blood. Good for O’Malley. He was always an unwavering Obama supporter. He comes across as very honest.
So many good summer songs….

Longest day of the year. Oh good! We here in PHX get to stretch out 108 degrees even LONGER! :) Ah…summer in the desert!
Came to mind…
I’m feeling very hungry, yet not at all hungry at the same time. Quite an odd experience on an early Saturday afternoon.
Chopped pieces of fruit might help you decipher which way to go…works for me
Yes, indeed! I’ve noticed that when I eat fruit, if I’m truly hungry, then I become noticeably hungrier after eating the fruit.
Hopefruit2, have you ever tried a watermelon salad. Very refreshing. Seedless watermelon cut in small square pieces, slice red onions, sea salt, fresh ground pepper, and olive oil with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice or fresh lime juice. Lightly toss and partake. Delicious. I hope you like and can eat watermelon. Plus the colors are pretty on a lovely black plate or a white plate. Enjoy.HZ
Ooooh..sounds delicious HZ. Sounds like a great treat during the summertime, and I do love watermelon. Will give it a try soon! Thanks for the recipe :)
@tienle47 @GovernorOMalley not me but great speech!— Jon Favreau (@jonfavs) June 21, 2014
I love Jon Favreau!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a great team that will be as well. I so love Gov. O’Malley. He has been right there as a close and decent friend to PBO. I feel very good about this man. We will see. HZ
A couple nice articles of Malia playing tennis (from 2012). :)
Bringing this over from previous thread – A couple nice articles of Malia playing tennis (from 2012). :)
Always my favorite! Give my best to Danny – missing my pup so much – I loooooove to see your great pix! You are his Pete Sousa!
:-) Pete Souza will probably sue you Mary if he sees this comment! Thank you, you lovely person!
All I’ll have to do is show the court your Danny and Portapotty pictues and I will be free and clear! By the way, I missed most of the hairbrush drama – just curious, was it a Mason-Pearson? I used to have one of those and I still miss it!
:-) It wasn’t a Mason-Pearson Mary, but my new one will probably be – and I’ll lock it in a vault every night!
:) :) :) :)
My old corgi use to chew my shoes. Pair after pair of black pumps. I’d try to keep them out of his reach – not hard to do with a corgi – but as soon as I forgot, chomp! They were gone. I feel your hairbrush pain.
:-) We are one, Mary – chomp/gone is the current story of my life!
