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

I almost forgot...

...to post today!!

I haven't loaded in the pictures from the Greek Festival yet, so that'll be a post for another day. We had fun...well, Bird did, anyway. I enjoyed myself, but it was crowded and full of rude people and long lines for the overpriced children's activities ($3.00 for five minutes in an inflated play area? Really??). Still...the little guy had a blast, so it was worth the drive down.

I came home with a headache and some baklava, so I figure I broke even. I do like baklava...

It's grey here, may rain, may not. The air is still and cool, and I'm wearing socks because my floor is...umm...crunchy...and it's just chilly enough to warrant them. Bird thinks it's funny to see me in socks, I so rarely wear them. The kitten thinks they're an invitation to attack my feet.

I'm doing laundry, dishes, homey things. It's Sunday...but then, every day is like any other day, here - they're all much of a muchness. The best part of my day is when the phone rings and it's Someone calling to chat. Sweetness, that.

Earlier today, Bird was asking me about the people I love, ranking them in order of importance. He put himself first (natch) and then the kitten, and then asked me who else. I said I thought Mum should come before Rook. He agreed, and then reminded me of Someone and they should come after Mum but before Rook, and those were the four people I love the most. Good grief, I love that boy.

Nothing much of interest here - what're you up to today, fellow denizens of the Blue Nowhere?

It's rainy on and off here too. I think 3 bucks for 5 minutes is horrible! But, glad both of you had time with each other and had fun.

I am just cleaning and picking on the keyboards a little bit. Just finished cooking and having lunch with the folks.

A low-key day all around, it seems. Hope you had a lovely time with the folks, Mizz Darsden!

Sunday has always seemed like a restful day to me...even though I no longer have to work.

Glad you got in some fun time with the young one!

Mister Hermit, sir, sometimes a body needs time off from their retirement, too...something to break up the monotony or the grind. As Someone remarked to me about my days...every day is Friday to me...and sometimes that gets old.

I'm always happy to play with the Evil Genius, and he did have a blast, so it's all good.

Thanks for dropping in!
