"I have no more campaigns to run," Obama said, attempting to proceed to the next sentence.
However, Republicans saw a chance to snark on the president, and they seemed to deliver a relatively thunderous round of applause for the comment. Obama fired back with an impromptu line that got even more positive howls of support from Democratic lawmakers present.
"I know because I won both of them," he quipped.
After pausing for several seconds to embrace the support, Obama then returned to his prepared remarks.
The warm weather on Sunday was perfect for a walk in the park. It was the culmination of a super-snuggly weekend with Fred & Ethyl. From these pics, they look so lazy. But hey...they ARE professionals!
( the Kings of Snuggling...cut for length and excessive cuteness.Collapse )
And in the end, humans make damn good pillows.
Matt was out when i got home last Thursday, but the welcoming committee greeted me with open paws! my little babies, Fred & Ethyl, make Thursdays my fave day of the week! Oh, OK, Matt does too, but he makes EVERYday happy. And i was happy to see the xmas lights still there. It was really cold, so they didn't come down and i got to enjoy them one more time. Alas, the unseasonably warm weather on Saturday and Sunday - sunny and in the 50s - made it an opportunity to take down the outdoor xmas decorations that we couldn't pass up. And they came down a LOT quicker than they went up. In less than 45 minutes, they were all down, packed up in the plastic tubs and relegated to the shed out back to await the passing of the next 10 months. *sigh*

"...my name is Elmer J. Fudd. i'm a MILlionaire! i own a mansion and a yacht."
The kids were only mildly interested in the story i was reading to them. Ethyl is looking at my like "if I feign attention, maybe he'll pet me or give me a snack." Fred has pretty much checked out all together.
There's a new meme going around Instagram called the "stop, drop and selfie" where you are tagged in someone else's selfie and as soon as you see it, you have to stop and drop what you're doing and post a selfie. It's stupid and juvenile and personally i don't call what i do "selfies" (i word i really despise.). Fortunately, you can remove your tag from folks' pics and they won't even know the difference. ("Wha?? i wasn't tagged...") LOL.
Can you believe it? i've posted 25,000 pictures to flickr. It's taken a long time, but i don't like to post multiple versions or crap (though i'm sure there is plenty of crap in these files). Lots of bears, lots of speedos, lots of nekkidity. Lots of smiles and a few tears along the way. i hope you have enjoyed my life less ordinary. *hugz*
