Quote of the day...er...week...umm...hey, look, a quote!!

Tibi gratias agimus quod nihil fumas.

It says "...freedom of...", not "...freedom from...".

"It's amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral self-righteous bullying laziness. People need to be fed, medicated, educated, clothed, and sheltered, and if we're compassionate we'll help them, but you get no moral credit for forcing other people to do what you think is right. There is great joy in helping people, but no joy in doing it at gunpoint." - Penn Jillette

Thoughtfetti

I didn't call my father on father's day. I wrote Bird's post to T and thought about my Dad, but was in the mountains with no cell signal most of the day. Then I forgot. Dang. This is what happens when parents don't keep up with their kids and vice versa. I'm calling him tonight. I bet he won't notice. Maybe.

My nose is running like a faucet...the result of being out in Nature for a week then coming home to a house full of cats, A/C, and dust. Whee.

I signed onto the Internet without having to search out a network, agree to terms of use, and enter a password. It's good to be home.

In two weeks, I'm taking a little trip, just for my selfish arse. Mum's going to watch the Evil Genius, and they'll probably run each other ragged. I'm going somewhere I've never been, bringing my camera to shoot everything that doesn't run away fast enough, meeting a friend for the first time, and looking to the future.

How does one little boy who wore almost no clothing for the last week produce so much laundry? Really - I'll be doing the wash for a week, at least!

Anyone want to come help me clean my house? I can't pay you cash, but there's homemade bread in the deal...

It would almost be worth it for some homemade bread!

Is your house empty of the other? Was that okay?

Rob Houston said...

.....the other?

Interesting terminology.

Mister Hermit, Sir, I could sweeten the deal...with some wildflower honey. Oh, and Irish butter. Heh.

Mizz Magpie, we are working out the details of...well...everything. He's asked ME to set a timeline for move-out, and I am pondering that. It's not an easy process...nor a happy one...sigh.

Rob...thanks for popping in, sugar!

He wanted respond earlier, mayhap if only with a smile... but tonight he says---

He won't mind. Not at all, at all..
