          Hope that PBO gets some golf in this weekend but my guess is that he will be on the phone with our Iran team for much of it. And then there is Malia’s birthday….wonder if she is home with family. FLOTUS at one point said she is doing another internship this summer. Hard to believe but she will be graduating hs this next year, and next summer at this time will be getting ready for college. Where has the time gone.

          • July 3, 2015 at 11:02 am

            FoxfireTX, remember when POTUS was in California a couple of weeks ago and it was reported that he had dinner with Steven Spielberg and another head of some studio, I can’t think of his name, but I was wondering if POTUS was maybe arranging another internship for Malia. Last year she work on the tv series starting Hallie Berry. That series is coming back for the summer..

            Good holiday morning to you, Foxfire.

            No better way to enjoy a holiday moment than to indulge in gossip/speculation, in this case about Malia — what a whirlwind year she’s gonna have — college preparations, BIG change for her family, all happening when so much is going on, just being sixteen-going-on-seventeen. πŸ˜‰

              It is going to be an amazing year for their family. So nice that we get to share:-) Thanks for this, I don’t follow anything like this to spot it. It will be so interesting to watch these girls over the years. While I highly doubt that they will go into politics, it is hard to imagine they won’t be involved in some form of public service given their parents commitment their entire lives. And yes, while I rarely follow anyone or anything, just can’t resist the Obamas!

              And good holiday morning to you and all of TOD as well:-) Mine will be quiet, daughter is working and the grandkids are with their dad until Sunday. But it is cloudy today so OK with me. They will be here Sunday for swimming and fun.

      Good idea, since our news media is like a cat waiting to pounce at the thought of finding fault with anything Obama-related (though cats are a lot more adorable).

              #tellmeaboutit. I almost ook of my physio’s head about 4 years back for making me do shite for my shoulder pain. Turns out the fecker was right and no shoulder problems any more.

                  I am still friends with my effing physio. His joke: How is effing shoulder?

      Some days, this is all you got and all you need:) Now, if I could just have these things WITH that ocean…I’ll be good! Morning, yardarm. Morning, TOD…all that horsing around this morning really gave me a laugh first thing:) I love this family….waiting for the repair man to come and fix my washer. Same thing I was doing LAST Friday at this time! The parts got delivered to my house this week…let’s hope for a completed job today. I need to do some SERIOUS loads of laundry. Seriously.

        July 3, 2015 at 10:57 am

        furst 99ts, now you ….

        why do wimmin have problems with their washing machines? seriously?

        btw, have you considered taking a hammer to it? #thatshowweengineersgititdone.

        • 93 desertflower
          July 3, 2015 at 11:09 am

          Well….it’s not MY washing machine..but “oddly” enough, I’m the one that gets to use it the most! SURPRISE!! Or, as I like to repeat out loud so everyone in my house can hear me.. ” It’s ok, MOM WILL DO IT!!” A hammer would make me feel good, but it won’t get me to the end game which is to be able to do laundry without it sounding like an F-18 is taking off and without the water on the floor. I don’t think that’s too much to ask. Do you?

        There’s always a washboard, eh?

          Not for ME there’s not:) Too much work. I can be like my husband and just go buy more of whatever needs to be clean…. ( he really HAS done that! Especially underwear. ALWAYS bought new undies if his were dirty. Navy thing, I think)

        Good luck with that df – the 2nd call on my dishwasher was a washout – another week before call no 3

          #3??? Screw that. Did you raise a stink?? I would have raised the roof. This is the second time for me, but the firsoutt time he didn’t have all the parts he needed to fix it for me and had to order them. They were delivered to my house this week. That was fine with me. As long as it gets fixed today, I’m good. But THREE TIMES??? WTH is THAT about? Too many times. Call them and yell. Good luck, love!

            If the repair guy can’t work out what’s wrong & just keeps turning up with more parts – what can I do. Apparently the said machine is somewhat of a lemon. Shame I didn’t check before I bought same!

        Some people never have enough, I guess. Seems like he made millions just from his name, did no real work. Talk about grifters….meanwhile, back in the REAL WORLD, people like him deny fair pay to others for a legit days work….I just scratch my head.
