Tight times

Lor' lumme, times is tough all over. People are actually starting to seriously use the "D" word for the first time since WWII. Today's "Overboard" was funny, but also caused a cord in my heart to be plucked, because in some ways it's not funny at all.



I remember reading this book to my kids when they were little, and it made me cry. Today, more folks than I care to count are really struggling, and I even feel the cold breath of economic terror from behind the door on occasion.

I'm hoping and praying that whoever is able to pull the economic strings in our country over the next four years can keep us from total meltdown, because folks, we're only a couple of degrees away from an economic China Syndrome.

My motto at the moment os "What would Mum have told me to do?" (Got no strings my wooden butt)

Of course the fact that she must have been at least partially away with the fairies for the last few years don't help none.....

Dost mean If you wan' it here it is, come an' get it? by Badfinger? OOOOO thoughts of Raquel as Mistress of the Lash and her barebreastedboatingbeauties! STROKE! STROKE! AAaaagh.....
or as Pte Frasier put it "Catch! Pull! Up! Featherrrrr....

I had a badfinger once....
I put my finger in the woodpeckers hole
and the woodpecker said "Lord bless my soul!"
"Take it out! Take it out! Reeeemove it!"
SO I took my finger from the woodpeckers hole
and the woodpecker said "Lord bless my soul!"
"Stick it back! stick it back! Reeeeeeplace it!"

Some 'peckers are never happy.
