Fixing Stupid

Mom is still ill but is doing better. I am going to do a lot of TLC today. I have my lab tests at 9:15 this morning and can't eat until after the test. Of course I am as hungry right now as I have ever been. I got the word yesterday I start work next Tuesday. I'm not sure I am ready for it.

On to today's post. You can't fix stupid? Apparently the Russians are going to try:

With Mom sick the last two days have been a little testy and not all that great. But certainly not as bad as the following home owner:

When mom gets well I am going to do a little dancing:

Hope your mum continues to be on the mend.

I'm very glad to hear mom is doing well now. You have the magic touch, Bill. By now you'll have been able to eat. I hope you enjoyed it.

Russians have always had a cutting sense of humor about themselves and their government. At least since the Communists, I'm not sure about before. And they've always had plenty of ineptitude to make jokes about. Too bad about that.

It must be terrifying to have the police mistakenly raid your house. I can imagine some armed homeowner not relizing it was the police and starting to shoot and being mowed down in return.

I guess AOL just doesn't like me any more, because the "dancing" video won't load for me.

So glad to hear Mom is better. Hope you had a great breakfast after the lab tests. Aren't we always hungrier, when we can't have/find something to eat.

Interesting about the Russian website. Gee, I wonder what would happen if such a site was available over here (it would crash from overload the first day?)

I sure hope the feds had a warrant, with the exact proper address and apartment number and name on it or they could be in a world of hurt on this one in Mass.

Love the video of the walk guard. She obviously enjoys her job and, from the comments from the kids, they think she's wonderful.

Thank you Snug.

She had a turn for the worse and I had to unexpectedly spend the night there. She is better this morning.

Hi Pat

Mom is up and down like a yo-yo. I thought she should have gone to 911 yesterday but I was overruled. She is better this morning and has a doctor appointment at 4.

I love both the English & the Russion humor. Ineptitude is everywhere. See Komen for the cure.

Boy can you imagine the trial if someone accidently shot the FBI that was accidently breaking into their house.

Sorry that you can read the video. It was pretty charming.

Hi DR

I spoke to fast re Mom. She is going to the doc at 4 today. More then.

I was certainly hungrier when I couldn't eat!

LOL at the site crashing here if we had one! It definitely would.

If the feds had a warrent with the correct address on it, that might even make things worse for them. If they had the wrong address they are also in deep doo doo. I don't see a way out of it for the FBI. They are going to have pay up.


The walk guard is probably a topic of conversations in some homes with the students telling the parents about her.

Just an update: Yes, I misspelled "realizing". Must proofread. {s}

And I can't get any of the AOL videos. I didn't mention the second one because I had totally missed it, but when I went back to see it, same deal. Said "Loading" forever but never actually got anything loaded. It may require some update of Flash, which is usually my problem. They change things all the time and it usually screws me up for a while.

Hi Pat

I honestly didn't notice the misspelling. Usually if I am not sure of a spelling and don't want to take time to look it up I goes with yours because you seldom if never spell anything incorrectly.

I am sorry about the inability to read videos. When some of them take so long to load, I move on to other things while they are loading and they eventully get there.
