Miscellaneous Rambling

Daughter Kell e-mailed me to say the tornado that hit Omaha, NE, didn't do any damage at their house, although it did do some just a few blocks away. I had to write back and say, "Tornado? What tornado?" Probably, it's a blessing I didn't hear about it. Probably, I'd still be lying on the couch with a cold washcloth on my head if I had heard it on the news before she told me about it.


John McCain says he wants to put a man on Mars. I nominate HIM. Big navy man, maybe he can find water there.


I ran into a friend at the grocery store Friday. She's one of those older Hillary fans the pundits go on and on about. So am I, to some extent, but, we're not exactly the Grey Panthers. She is mad, of course, and threatening to vote for John McCain, but we both know that there is no way her brain is going to allow her hand to go to the touch screen and vote for a Republican. I'll be seeing her at Democratic headquarters as soon as the doors open for the general election campaign.


Jay went to Dollar General yesterday, for something, and he said the shelves were practically empty. Who says people aren't hurting? And, still companies are having big layoffs. Where will it all end? See ya in the poorhouse!


President Bush has stepped up his saber-rattling about Iran, and has even sent Condi Rice out to do some head-rattling on his behalf. Where does he think he might find enough troops to invade Iran, or is he just planning to "nuke" them, and get it over with? He's just crazy enough to try.

Has there ever been a time when a president called for a war, and the military refused to go?


The Governor's Mansion in Texas was apparently torched sometime last night. Do you guess Governor Goodhair was trying to light a cigarette while applying his hair spray?


On the show-biz front, someone has reported that Clay Aiken is going to be a daddy. Seems he lives with a woman (just friends) and acted as a sperm donor for her to get pregnant - and it TOOK! Jeebus! If he can't bring himself to do it the fun way, should he be allowed to reproduce? I mean, she's right THERE, for heaven's sake. Oh, well. To each his own.


And speaking of babies, someone is saying that Paris Hilton is preggers. I'm speechless.


And, in Arkansas news, there's nothing happening in Arkansas.

Betty, you ought to ramble miscellaneously more often!! I enjoyed this post. I think Paris has to try and keep up with her BFF. Poor Clay, he can't seem to escape negative publicity!

Betty said...

kenju: I know. I feel a little guilty when I blog about Clay. I actually think he is very talented, and funny.

Betty, I loved this post. Thanks for all the info and opinions. I feel bad that there are some Dems who won't vote for Obama because he's black. I'd like to think we have moved beyond that, but we have not. Too Bad.


the teach said...

You got me laughing Betty! Some great insights! Hope we can all come together and give McCain a run for his money... :D

Betty said...

rich: There's a lot of racism rampant in these here hills. I got an e-mail from a former co-worker the other day containing a picture of Michelle Obama next to a picture of an ape. Is that racist enough to make you want to throw up? Me, too.

teach: I would hope that the women who claim they are going to vote for McCain are just blowing off steam.

You have no idea how much I hope you are right about your friend the Hillary supporter, and all those like her!

The Mountain Cat said...

They must have found G.W. Bush's old WMDs in that mansion from when he was gov'n'r.

Betty said...

dogwalkmusings: I hope so, too.

mountain cat: LOL So, THAT's where they were!

Betty, Erin is Nurse at your hospital at Harrison. Someone in your fair village made that pretty cake.

I agree with you send McCain to Mars...

Grocery stores have several empty shelves too.

SnoopMurph said...

This cracked me up-and my husband and I both chuckled at the Clay Aiken paragraph. Sorry, but that is way too funny.

Great wordzzle below too!

Betty said...

sister-three: Someone here made that cake? Wow.

snoopmurph: Thanks for reading and commenting. Come back and see me sometime.

Of course there is news in Arkansaas. As long as Michelle Dugger is still popping out Jim Bob Jrs, there will be news.
