Blogging

I apologize for the dearth of blogging lately.

I spent the weekend pretty much passed out again, and the next few weeks are going to be somewhat difficult. I will try to get something up whenever I can, but there are some things I need to take care of and they take precedence over blogging.

Yeah, I noticed that my lawn wasn't mowed when I cam back from a sailing trip yesterday.

Heh. Take your time. That's one thing about me having a little blog without much traffic - no one really expected me to post all the time ;-)

We shall amuse ourselves in your absence!

Miss Ladybug...what's for dinner?

Posted by: vet66 at August 17, 2009 06:57 PM

Ok for amusement.

I was searching Youtube shortly before lunch looking for some Sinatra and saw this atop the Videos Being Watched Now section. Having a fondness for auto sports I clicked on it.

For some strange reason, maybe earlier discussions related to driving, I had a laugh while wondering if this is what M'lady Cass commute from Western Maryland into Washington looks like? =8^p

Take care of bid'ness M'lady. Lowered willing, we'll be here when you return.

We'll be fine. You take care of yourself; you are everything to your family, so take off and come back when you can.

I forgot to drag Bill out of the mosh pit.

Real World needs (family, friends, etc.) come way before blogging. You do what needs to be done and rest assured that those of us who admire your snarkyness while retaining your Princessly attitude, wit and smile, will still be here when you feel like slapping the keyboard around a bit.

You have a loyal cadre, I think. And we all respect your needs. RIGHT PEOPLE??? I CAN'T HEAR YOU!!!!!

I went to the monthlydinner at the American Legion Post where I recently joined the Auxiliary. I didn't know what was on the menu until I got there this evening. Legion-provided main course was chicken fried steak from Bill Miller Barbecue, along with mashed potatoes & cream gravy (I ALWAYS pass on the gravy...). Along with that, there was corn, Ranch Style beans, an assortment of side items members brought, and a selection of member-provided desserts. It hit the spot. Last month, it was lasagna, and I've no idea what it will be next month.

Jiminy Christmas, Cass. Do you have some vitamin or dietary deficiency? I hope you have a good specialist that you are seeing.

Get away from that d___ computer screen and rest your head. Then get spd rdr's lawn mowed. There have got to be priorities here.

"I will try to get something up whenever I can, but there are some things I need to take care of and they take precedence over blogging."

In "Camo world", everything takes precedence over blogging...which may serve to explain why I do so little of it anymore. Of course, since it's the time of year when it is nice outside, that has some bearing on the situation too.

Yeah, I noticed that my lawn wasn't mowed when I cam back from a sailing trip yesterday.

What, no self-mowing lawn? I've got a manservant for that; in point of fact, the last time I came back from an attempted sailing trip*, my lawn was mowed.

*Attempted because I broke a spreader while raising the mast. One of the rigging cables got hung up. Anyway, I ordered a new one and it has already been delivered (and replaced). Note to self: do NOT force things. I'm thinking of trying again this coming weekend, on the Chesapeake...

It hit the spot.

That was supposed to go on the Double Entendre thread, Miss L...

Posted by: BillT at August 18, 2009 12:34 AM

Whew. Miss Ladybug, I didn't forget about dragging you out of the mosh pit, but I was busy engaging Guilty White Liberal Males in my 'Gaia 101' class. Namely, if Russia and China have MOST of the arable land in the world, why can't they feed their people?

This week, we will focus on Strip Farming in Brazil (Naughty Soy), and the Air Quality Index of a major city, and how, by reducing the number of humans and increasing taxes on the remaining number of humans, the air will be cleaner.

Chicken fried steak? *drools*.

Posted by: Cricket at August 18, 2009 09:15 AM

Jiminy Christmas, Cass. Do you have some vitamin or dietary deficiency?

I don't think so. I got a complete checkup the last time the spouse was deployed and all my test results said I'm healthy as a horse :)

The only thing they said I am at risk for is osteoporosis, b/c I'm 'white and slender'. Makes me sound like a chicken or something. Anyway, I'm going back to the doctor. I just need to find a neurologist closer to where I live so I don't have to drive into DC.

Posted by: Cassandra at August 18, 2009 09:21 AM

...if Russia and China have MOST of the arable land in the world, why can't they feed their people?

It's because the US Health Care system needs reform and criticism of Obama is racist.

Well, isn't that the standard Lib answer to *everything* these days?

Posted by: BillT at August 18, 2009 09:38 AM

Miss Ladybug, I didn't forget about dragging you out of the mosh pit...

Judging by her latest entry, she's starting to enjoy being there.

Why does that thought suddenly make me nervous?

Posted by: BillT at August 18, 2009 09:41 AM

It's the quiet ones you have to watch out for sometimes...

Posted by: Miss Ladybug at August 18, 2009 10:10 AM

Camo: We were working a big cat in the Bay off of Sting Ray Point (Deltaville)last weeekend. Light winds, but with plenty of sail it made for a comfortable trip for the ladies and kids. Enjoy!

Posted by: spd rdr at August 18, 2009 10:37 AM

The whole weekend? Wow, that must have been quite a party.

You need to quit hanging around with Marines, maybe invite some CPAs or life insurance salesmen to your next get-together. You know, tone things down a little.

You're not a kid anymore.

Cricket, your class sounds like why I tell people that I believe in conservation but am not an environmentalist. The whole "humans are evil" thing gives me the creeps. As I posted on another blog, I have co-workers who really feel that the world will be better if 70% of humans vanished.
When I teach about the environment, I try and stress that you can't blame humans/ Western Civilization/ evil corporations/ oil companies/conservatives/ (insert favorite bogy man here) because there's garbage on the beach at Spring Break.

The Double Entendre post is the one *below* this one...

Posted by: BillT at August 18, 2009 01:30 PM

LR1 -- Have you ever noticed that the "environmentalists" always seem to believe they're part of the 30% who shouldn't go away?

One of my favorite Walt Kelly quotes from "Pogo" is "I's noticed that folks in favor of birth control allus took the trouble to make sure they got borned fust."

'Nother favorite is "Women aren't as mere as they used to be."

Posted by: BillT at August 18, 2009 01:43 PM

Speaking of how environmentalist think... anyone read Rainbow Six by Tom Clancy? I think you'd like the ending ;-)

Posted by: Miss Ladybug at August 18, 2009 02:12 PM

If Cass takes an extended break, we just need to waterboard Spd and Carrie and get the login info...

Then...

Par-TAY!

NIccN, that sounds like a food fight to behold...

Did I hear "neurosugeon?"

Now where did I put that Dremel Moto-tool???? Ah yes...with the cranial jig and a fresh wolfram carbide wheel, suitably sterilized with a butane fireplace starter.

I knew these things would come in handy....now Cass open wide....this won't hurt me a bit.

LOL

Take care, mon ami. See that quack. They need the practice before Pbo limits them to a new minimum wage scale based income plan where it's all about time in service to "Teh Won."

Posted by: Kbob in Katy at August 18, 2009 04:12 PM

Rather than subject Mr. Rdr and Carrie to waterboarding using the High Bubba of Southern Knuckle Draggers approved method of course. That being to require the subject to hold a shot of Jim Beam in each hand and bob for pigs feet in an open keg of Red, White, & Blue beer, all while answering questions on 10A and the Commerce Clause-- *hic!*

Anyway, maybe an open thread each day would suffice to keep the Villainous natives somewhat subdued while M'lady is otherwise occupied?

In that spirit, I offer a tribute to Robert Novak.

"Robert Novak epitomized cool because he never cared about what people thought. Instead he stole the left’s stereotype of conservatism, and made it his own delightful persona. If being a fan of free markets, a strong defense and limited government made him evil, then evil he was."
SALUTE!
RIP Mr. Novak.

Cassie,
I am keeping your and yours in the prayers of Chez Engineer.

As to wackos, my sister *was* a member of the Sierra Club until she literally bought a farm.
Alluvasudden, wackos don't know...fertilizer.

Sweet! I was on a 44' cat in the British Virgin Islands last month; my personal vessel is only a 26' MacGregor. They're available new, with trailer, for a base "sticker" price of merely $21,500; I traded a Harley for mine.
(I had a spare)

Anyway, if the weather cooperates, I plan to launch at Elk Neck State Park in Maryland...

Posted by: camojack at August 19, 2009 03:43 AM

That is one thing I think I would like; sailing, but it is still scary. Truly, the only thing about it that appeals to me is being able to tack back and forth to get from point a to point b.

Doing that on the open ocean would cause huge fear in me...but engender serious respect for the men who braved the oceans in the 1600s in wooden boats and sail.

Here's to the Navy and the Coast Guard.

Y'all are just awesome.

PS Any word on the America's Cup?

Posted by: Cricket at August 19, 2009 08:37 AM

America's Cup is meaningful when it is overflowing with your favorite adult beverage!

LOL

It has gotten too commercial, too far from the original idea of sailors pushing themselves and their vessel to the limits. Now it is all tech driven....any resemblence to real sailing is coincidental and due to close proximity to water.

Posted by: Kbob in Katy at August 19, 2009 11:29 AM

*sniff*. That was what I liked about it when I first read about it years ago. We also follow the Iditarod, and that is more 'persyn against the elements with hys/hyr dogs.' I use that spelling so as not to offend any liberal feminists who might be outraged or assume I don't know that women have competed in and won the Iditarod.

Scary? At under 10 MPH?! ;-)

Taking my li'l sloop across the Gulf Stream to The Bahamas in 2005 was kind of "pushing the envelope", but not too much, really. Had there been a Northerly component to the wind at the time though, well that would have been a different matter entirely...
