Video of Tillman the Surfing Bulldog plus music by The Beach Boys equals Surfin’ Bulldog.
What’s on your mind?
is this thing on?
Hi, Suz. Still resting up from my trip to South America. Glad to be back. Must say that I did have a grand adventure and a good rest, though. Good to be back at the Lake.
That bulldog should be president! Dang.
oh and a potential ZED!
hey dearie — tis good to have ya back — when you are rested up, i’d love to hear the stories of your trip
senator! how’s sac tonight?
Nice. Hot tomorrow and the next day. But fall is coming on us.
i figured after the silliness of the party of hate’s ‘debate’ earlier, we could all use a break tonight…
Predictable. And b. o. r. i. n. g.
Ok, so who won the debate tonight, Elena Meyers or Wilson Phillips?
Funny things: took Copa Airlines. Great flights….. fed and wined/liquored all the way. And maybe even a couple more knee inches in coach. Great flights. And watching the TSA/Panama telling people to keep their damned shoes on…. just like in Munich/Frankfort when I came through Germany. The USA is so juvenile….really.
i love how tillman wiggles when on the skateboard… much better to watch that than a crowd of people cheer about perry’s executing record number of people boast…
hey hannibal — how ya doing tonight?
That’s why I didn’t watch the debate, I made one up in my head. But life’s not entirely bad, at least Kate + 8 is being cancelled.
never heard of them — are they a south american airline?
Possibly suffering from mild heat delirium or something. A little buzzed, and enjoying the sweet cold of my A/C.
surfin’ dogs are much smarter than dickweed, idiot, right wing (take your pick of either party) shitheads.
or something like that.
yikes, how hot did it get today?
Listening to the Repukes cheer for executions sickened me…. what’s the matter with these people? I’d like to see shots of some of the candidates eating shrimp or lobster so someone could Old Testament them. And, damn, are any Republicans in favor of stoning adulterers???? I’ll bet not. (Well, adulterer wives, yes, of course….but men, I don’t think so.)
Aloha, Suz and pups…!
token surfed the san lorenzo when we were at the cabin… i must admit that the san lorenzo in summer had less water in it than the creek did and he could easily walk across even with his short little legs. but he did jump on a piece of plywood and ‘surf’ across to the other side.
aloha tut — how’s paradise (and the babe) tonight?
Republicans brag about the weirdest things. I’m surprised the moderator didn’t ask “Which of you has the biggest gun collection?”
Over 100°, for the second day in a row. Unfortunately I had to spend most of that outside, working. Ah well, it beats the alternative.
I’d never heard of them, either. My brother booked the flights. LAX to Panama and then a 45 min. flight into Cartagena. Wonderful airline. Very comfortable. Reminded me of flying from TX to CA in the old days. ….. Maybe I’ve just been around too long.
yikes! a wet towel or kerchief around your neck (if permitted) helps a lot along with drinking lotsa lotsa water. yikes
“Which of you has the biggest gun collection?”
That would’ve been too overt amount of pandering…! ;-)
Didn’t watch “The Biggest Loser” tonite, but Teddy’s thread was ROFLMAO funny !
Oh, this is just too damn cool.
When will one of the ‘moderators’ have the guts to say, “What would Jesus do?”
airlines in this country are more focused on squeezing as many people into as little space as possible. how wonderful it must have been to have room to move your legs on the flights :)
also known as the who has a bigger dick question
Since when has that ever stopped the Bundmen?
petro! how’s toronto tonight?
Only had experienced some evening clouds today…! Cooling it down nicely…! The baby was feisty today, eating more(and excreting more) than snoozing…! ;-)
I’ve had this stupid song going through my head for two days. MAKE IT STOP!!!
Hey, y’all. Checking in. Been lost in virtual reality for a month or so.
jen’s jujube update today:
Julesy had her check up today and she did great! Had 2 shots and a drink. The drink went down with no problem and the first shot had no affect on her, then came the 2nd shot…poor little mama. :( she weighs 15.6 and is 25 1/2 inches long! I love my big girl
No Ray Wylie? WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!
By the way, FUCK THE REPUBLICANS!!!
hey dave — try this — usually breaks ear worms for me — what were ya working on?
I’ve been out of town….baby arrived? All went well? And, hey, enjoying???!!!
That human papaloma virus shot Perry mandated for girls as young as 12, why didn’t one of those “reporters” counter his “I hate cancer” schtick by pointing out the maker of the anti-papoloma serum contributed heavily to Perry’s campaign after he signed the bill?
I know it’s true,
Cause I read it on FDL….
hey that guy — its on the list dood — how ya doing tonight?
hey robert — how’s soPA tonight? i heard some areas of pa got hammered with rain
Pleeeease don’t tell us which song!!!
Been out doing roof repairs to my shop until it started getting dark. Missed the debate. Watching it now, waiting for Ms. ET to get home from a week out in Bristol Bay.
Our Provincial election campaign kicked off today, with voting on October 6, so thankfully not a long, drawn out campaign …
What I love about this election is, because the Right party is so batshit crazy, the Libruls are going more Left.
But I had to wonder…..why didn’t any of the moderators ask if any of the candidates thought that measles/mumps/whooping cough vaccinations were an affront to personal responsibility and should be the choice of the parents???
Flooded streets, homes, the standard list. Even the roof over my den sprung a small leak, though I replaced shingles late spring.
Guess I missed one….
*heh* I’ve got some YouToobz, available…! This was shot less than an hour after he was born, Dearie…! *g*
hey et — getting it ready for winter?
yikes! any risk of evacuations?
i envy your short election season
And why didn’t anyone ask Mr “Fed Up” why he asked for FEMA help now that God hates him and Texas is burning.
Did someone mention beer?
“Look for he has done for us, he’s filled us up with cheer. Lord bless Charlie Mopps, the man who invented beer, beer, beer, tiddley beer, beer, beer…”
or why if he prayed for rain, he got fire?
Getting it ready for the fall rains. I should have replaced it this summer, but trying to hold off one more year with seam patches and goop. The shop is fairly large – 24 X 48 building, so the roof is more like 28 X 52.
Since I have never heard of that song it CANNOT stick in my head.
Baby girl is beautiful and baby-baby is adorable. You are in for some great times. I can’t wait to get back to my grandbabyboys! Gives me hope…..and, gee, don’t we all need some of that!
i remember previous winters of yours when the wind was blowing so hard your shop door was rattling something fierce
I’ve been playing the last three games in the Avernum series.
Jeff Vogel, the author, is my hero. He’s made a living as an independent game developer for about 20 years. Him, his wife, and one gal as an office manager. Primitive graphics by today’s standards, but good story telling.
God just doesn’t like that guy….he just doesn’t get it yet. What’s the damned matter with those yahoos???? Do they not get that while they claim god is on their side, they are implying that god is not on someone else’s side. They are so stupidly self=serving. Too stupid to even have a sense of shame.
hey ppd — how ya doing tonight?
A couple evacs about fifteen miles south of me, lots 50 or more miles east. My house is on a steep hill, so all the rain streamed down from my neighborhood down to the rabble in the lower portions of town….
he cut the fire dept funding by 75%… dood was forking tempting fate
per the twitter, western philly is really getting hammered now
can’t forget the horses
My daughter lives and works in Philly. She uses public transit. She walks to it every morning.
She’ll be wailing on Facebook….
Tired. Work is BUSY. Everything is BUSY. I want to go back to the cabin. I want to go back there for a year. I’ll put up with the snow, I’ll stock up on food and just hang all winter, mostly hibernating.
It only rattles when the wind gets above about 95. That hasn’t happened since Palin quit as governor.
And he needs to be called on it. Again and again.
I remember those games, even played them back when they were called Exile. Vogel’s definitely one of the good ones, though the folks at Ambrosia Software have done some pretty cool stuff over the years as well.
those pics were fantastic — i would be wanting to go back too
i knew it had been a while but had not made that connection…
What if everyone decided to live in truth for a while. Imagine. Wow.
I have Exile 1-3, Blades of Exile, Avernum 1-3, all for Mac and I no longer have a functioning Mac. I bought Avernum 4-6 on CD last month with both Mac and Windows versions for $55. Lotsa cheap entertainment.
Truth is now so personal….
You mean everyone just makes it up?
I remember getting in trouble as a young teacher decades ago for telling a student that she could have her opinion but if she refused to base it on any facts that it meant nothing to me. I thought we could nip that in the bud.
As Larue would say, “LeSigh”…………..
Well, Suzanne, I need to get back to that short story I was busy editing of a Circle 8 writer. I took a break to check out you and your pups, how you all are getting by.
Now duty recalls me.
“Fourty pints of wallop a day will keep away the quacks, it’s only 8 pence haypenny, and one and six in tax.”
Heading for bed. Finally cool enough to sleep after about two months. So I plan on doing a lot of it.
Be good to one another.
super goes in
The Frontline programs from 2002 are sobering so see how little progress we’ve made since then.
… to see how little progress we’ve made since then
sunny! how ya doing tonight?
i had such high hopes in 11/08 *sigh*
What was interesting about being in Colombia was how many of the people I met had dual passports….to USA, to European Union (I met lots of people with Italian connections). And coming back into the US at LAX… multiple passports were common. Everyone is international…..’cept me. Gotta get with it! My dad can’t get us Irish citizenship because the place his grandparents left burned to the ground….all records lost. ….. it’s a new world. Get international……
i’ve envied those with dual citizenship — they have an escape clause built in… just in case. i would be forced to do an illegal border run
Tillman has made my day :-)
Aloha, Sunny…! I still want an explanation for the three shots to the forehead…! 8-(
It’s strange, isn’t it…..people still risking their lives to get into the USA and so many Americans making secondary plans. If my brother gets Colombian citizenship, then he could sponsor me. If my son-in-law gets his Italian citizenship then he can provide for my daughter, his sons, and then sponsor me. I’d just like an E-ticket. You know? Just give me a choice and a chance. So simple, really.
he sure made mine – my mom and my stepdad both emailed me this video. tis too good to not share
“What would Jesus do?”
RepubiTexanJesus would kill ‘em, raise them from the dead, and kill ‘em again.
RepubliTexanJesus is bad-ass – da Man.
oh hells bells
hey jayt — how ya doing tonight?
hiya Suz – all is well here in the State You Gotta Pass Through to Get Someplace Better.
And isn’t that just amazing! What do these ChristoFascists know about Jesus???
I listen to them rant on and wonder….awe struck at their lack of empathy, their narcissistic raging.
Who, I wonder, will stand up to these religio-Thugs?
forgot the link
*heh* Nice job, Suz…! Congrats even…! ;-)
starting to do the ohmygawd clean the house mom’s coming to visit panic — she will be here two weeks from tonight
OMG….I go away for ten days and you do it again…..the magic 100 loves you, Suz!
I am amused.
She scored it last nite, too…! She’s on a roll…! ;-)
kinda makes me want to scream – Zombee!!
Oh geez — I’ve no recollection of the three holes or the forehead to which you refer. Time to worry?
roger that dood
he’s talking about pat tillman the person, not tillman the bulldog
Ooh, I liked that one, Suz…! ;-)
Sorry, Sunny, wasn’t aware of the bulldog…! *sheepish grin*
dood he’s the subject of my forking video up top
I am, in fact, easily amused!
And,then too, my twin brother makes me crazy and his wife can’t give a straight answer if her life depended upon it……I had to come home and bang my head on the desk for two hours just to get my synapses and neurotransmitters to get back into some semblance of order
In a week or so I should be moderately okay. We’ll see.
I’m still laughing about the TSA-type folks in Panama screaming at some old guy to keep his damned shoes on. That helps.
I had to explain to my brother that the TSA no longer requires the surrender of cigarette lighters…. it was costing them too much money to dispose of all the lighters they were apprehending. They gave it up over cost. Feel safer now?
The TSA Panama (flunkies of the USA) did make one of the passengers take off his artificial leg…..but, hey, someone probably felt safer.
Dark humor does make travel someone humorous.
dark humor can get one through rough situations.. we used it often when i worked at the pd
And as a social worker at a juvenile court, dark humor was almost a requirement!
working the dark side did have its disadvantages.. but on the plus side, it did open my eyes to a whole new type of humor… and the reasons why it was needed
Oopsies, I came in late and didn’t even watch your offering, M’dear…! My humble apologies…! *g*
accepted tut *sniff sniff*
Late Breaking News!
Former Clinton chief of staff joins Facebook board
The co-chair of the Catfood Commission!
Yes. I do appreciate folks who have experienced those other sides of life.
I still marvel at the new judge at my court who asked about the little girl who “wanted it” == her brother put M&Ms on his little tool to get his sister to give him a lickin’…. you know what I mean. The judge couldn’t imagine that the boy was deviant. He was sure it was the little sister’s fault.
In juvenile court I got to see the beginnings of what was to come.
If we didn’t go dark we probably would have gone nuts.
Life is a stitch.
seems a strange pairing
when faced with laugh or cry, tis always better to laugh
tis about time for me to head out pups. thank you for letting me hang out with ya tonight.
WTF would that old Scrooge know about social networking outside of his rich like him friends?
We all did, Suzzz. I doubt anyone thought that they were voting for cheney’s third term, but here we are.
Okay, late. And just getting re=oriented. Good to be back at the Lake. Thanks, Suz for your good care of the late night denizens. Sleep well. Hasta Luego!
Ahah! Thank you Suz. My analogy comprehension dimms after midnight :-)
Hella CGI, Suz!
I mean, whoever heard of a bulldog surfin’?
*wow* That is wrong on so many levels…! 8-(
Sweet dreams, Suz and all…! *g*
Don’t admit that *g* I remain well convinced of your clever subtlety.
*heh* I do wear my heart on my sleeve, Sunny…! ;-)
