  •  Cheery, sunny Monday! really! :-) (6+ / 0-)

    Cheers to Bill and Michael and Fantom and Haley and......all da kids aroun' da pool

    The Poll:  YES

    Cheers to silliness.  In yesterday's New Day, jnhobbs wrote about how his mother would wake him in the morning, "The sun is shining and the birds are singing!"  My mum did the same only she went a step further:
     "Get up, get up!  The sun is shining, the birds are singing, "Glory be to God".....dammit, get up!"
    That woman had a way with words.

    Cheers to the rain we needed so much.  Jeers that it awakens the arthritis dragon that wants to eat me alive.  The pretty flowers come so very close to making up for it, though.

    Jeers to the faux outrage of the Right.  A-gain.  The whole IRS is investigatin' thing would be a whole lot more outrageous if:
    The head of the IRS weren't a Bush appointee.  
    The Bush Regime hadn't trampled on so many rights for so many years without the least whisper of outrage from the Right.
    How can the Right get it so Wrong....every. single. time.

    Cheers to BiPM acting like a  7-year-old!  That now makes you a year older than me.  neener!  And Billeh, trust me on this one....never pluck in someone else's garden.  just sayin'.  ;-D

    Cheers to all of us who love and are loved.  Nothing else compares.

    smoochies, kids.  Be kind to each other.

    We cannot call ourselves a civilised society if we refuse to protect the weakest among us.

      good morning, good morning, it's time to rise and shine, the sun is just above the hill, another day for us to fill, good morning, good morning.

      I cannt believe I still remember that. Do parents realize the trauma they can invoke with that crap?

      (And with apologies to anyone who actually loved their parents' singing them awake. I found it annoying.)

        Not being a "morning person", mum knew it would take an act of God to get me going.  She did with humour what she could not do with nagging.

        Funny enough, once I had to get myself up, I trained myself to awaken right before the alarm would go off!  I loathed that sound--still do--and would do almost anything to avoid it.

        But I'm still not a morning person, for the most part.

        We cannot call ourselves a civilised society if we refuse to protect the weakest among us.
