She's not your father's Spiro Agnew!

Is this really the VP candidate? Oh. My.

Surrounded by the right people!

See that woman with the fur collar, and the red, white, blue, and uh...purple corsage? Front center, between Mr White Fur Viking and Ms Wonder Woman colors steel bra?

Why, that's now John McCain's pick for vice president, Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin!
How could you not want to vote for the new Algonquin Society?

Plus....she'll supply America with venison...
and fish!


This is Sarah Palin as Miss Wasilla!

This is Dawn Wells of Gilligan's Island fame, where it was a much warmer place than Alaska...
Still, the resemblance

Yow! Did she catch this bear? How 'bout that crab? What's next, rail splitting? Chopping of cherry trees? Clearly, a legend in the making!

Some candidates visit Cannes...some bring the baby to the market because they're out of... all kinds of stuff, and it's good to grouse with someone else in the same boat! Who ate all the Pringles? That spouse o' mine... At least her friend clearly could make some burgers, or "loose hamburgers" in those hot dog buns...some onions, a little chili sauce...some extra moose meat for life is good.

A Fluffy Poll!

Do you blog or read blogs in your underpants?
Wouldn't you like to know!
Yes, but not my genders underpants
Do small woodland animals count? free polls

Those Fabulous Astaires

So Fred Astaire is lovingly looking at his sister Adele here, but Adele...she's looking at us! I wonder what she's thinking...

Double Blimpage .... and phone pole!

So you race outside when you see that there are TWO blimps around town at the same time, just to get their picture, and what's in the middle? The phone pole! Ah, well...

Holy moley, August is already a week old! These are truly the dog days in Ann Arbor, bounded by two events; the end of Art Fair in July, and the beginning of Football Season, towards the end of this month. It's easy to get parking! Things are relatively quiet! Alas, soon to be over...

Despite the emptiness of the fridge, I blundered into a way to make a good pot of beef stew, so that was done, and I've been eatin' on that one for a couple of days...

Things are quiet in blog land, Camie has been very busy with small children, and some of the noble corps have moved on...but I find new blogs, have fun with those, and bring back to this one little bit of spiritual nourishment, and let it cook slowly, like my stew...

Happy Birthday Victoria! After a long disappearance, she's back, but now on Euro-holiday...

Amba, you've become a favorite in a very short time! I check in every day.

It's all good!
