    • Morning lovely! Hope you got some good rest. πŸ™‚ Snoopy ❀️❀️❀️! Love the potato idea… so easy to do, too. I might try that over the weekend. Wonder if it would work with sweet potatoes and use a bit of cinnamon and brown sugar instead of the salt and pepper? I think today is going to be a really big news day, but I won’t be commenting much… my older DD is coming over with the littles for the day. Have a happy Friday and I’ll catch up when I can!

      Great list lovely, and good morning. That potato reminds me of how I used to cook them a long, long time ago, before I worried about fried foods and carbs. I had this little doohickey which was a blade with a plastic screw on the end. You stuck it in the potato and turned it and it made the whole potato an intact spiral. Season, deep fry, yum.

      Yeah, but every now and then that eagle, when fishing that lake, will still mess up and pancake in. It’s sad watching one, sopping wet, have to dog paddle its way out of the lake. Gotta watch your front also and not lose perspective.

      The potato!!!!! Yes !!!!! The eagle!!!!! Gorgeous!!! Area 51 – probably not. But, I love the memes and the whole idea we might finally get to see what they have: from space aliens to UFO aircraft. The whole “Independence Day” movie thing, when we go in & see the flying saucer, and Brent Spiner (the robot Data from Star Trek) as the crazy-haired scientist!!!! Love the movie! Always disappointed in the presidents who promised to tell us what is there, then back off and never do…..πŸ€” Hmmmm…

          Actually I knew Snoopy’s parents, Burt and Betina Beagle, quite well. They gave their son a fine start, encouraged him to think for himself, and to be caring and kind.

          Don’t believe anything seen in those cartoons which indicate he’s occasionally hard on Charlie Brown. He’s devoted to Charlie and wants him to believe in himself, that’s all.

          Btw, Snoopy came from a long-time Conservative family and voted for President Trump.

      Hey sand, hope you have great fun with your littles today. Mine are coming over for a little while this morning, at least two are. Next week I get two more of my boys for 8 days, and that will be a wild ride because the two year old is, as his dad words things, a “keep your foot on their throat” kind of kid. Not bad at all, just a two year old who does not have one ounce of give in in him. And he never, ever gets tired or stops.

      Makes me wonder how I kept up with three kids like that all the time back in the day. And then I remember, oh yeah, I was forty years younger.

        I get our GGS today, last few weeks until school starts in early August.. He’ll be 12 on Sunday, last real year before he enters those Years From Hell.

        Interesting how you can watch them grow, mature and change easier than you could your own – but then now you’re not really down in the trenches with them.

        Then again I have the dreaded yearly hunt for school supplies. Walmart has their regular Yellow Isles from Hell (lotta that ‘hell’ stuffaround) where you try, along with an equally frustrated herd of parents, to decode what is on the school’s list of mostly unnecessary supplies and match it what Walmart’s put on the bins. It’s like Pavlov did their marketing plan, you dread it all year long and then about four weeks before the start of the season they start putting the rows of yellow bins out make you start sweating and cringing.

          I used to get so outraged at school supply lists, both the vagueness of including things that make the danged thing like a treasure hunt, and the teachers adding everything but a car to the list.

          Yes to watching the grandkids grow up. It is a lot more fun than raising kids for sure. Lots of involvement, opportunity to help out, to influence them, but no called in to the principle’s office meetings.

          My oldest son was exactly like that. He used to end his day by rocking on his rocking horse, which he pounded off the floor frame and all, bouncing it six or eight inches with every bounce. He kept breaking frames and springs and we kept repairing. Finally, with the last and biggest rocking horse we found him, my husband welded a custom frame with heavy duty springs. He used to fall asleep on the horse every night, draped around its neck.

    In Islam, zakat β€” the alms required of every Muslim β€” can and should be given to further the jihad. So it shouldn’t surprise anyone that there are so many jihad-linked charities.

    LOL: Trump Campaign Sells $15 Dollar Pack of Plastic Straws (Liberals Unamused)

    Look, the guy cracks me up and I won’t apologize for it. Case in point, the Trump campaign is selling a 10-pack of recyclable plastic straws, laser-engraved with the word β€œTRUMP” because, as the campaign tells it, β€œliberal paper straws don’t work.”

    I don’t have to agree with every policy position to find that hilarious. Especially since it’s caused publications like VICE to get in their feelings about it and write pieces about the inferior quality, the only β€œtheoretical” recyclability, and the (guffaw) market attractiveness of said straws…

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    The lunar module vid is great, quite informative, made in the days when newsmen spoke in calm, authoritative voices, with nothing but facts.

    The scientists that designed the lunar module were brilliant, near-genius level minds. Which may explain something never reported by any newsman anywhere – there was no handle to open the lunar module door to re-enter the vehicle after traipsing on the moon. The one astronaut, forget which one, had to prop the door so they could get back in and go home.
