Like shooting fish in a barrel

"Summertime, and the livin' is easy.
Fish are jumpin', and the cotton is high."
--George Gershwin

It's too damned easy to make fun of the repugs these days. It's like the shit writes itself. The Sanfords, the Palins, and the other various assorted freaks and bigmouths on the right just seem to spend their time handing out the loaded guns, putting on their blindfolds, and shouting, "Fire!" all the time. It's hilarious.

I guess that's why I haven't posted much. I am still reading a lot of your blogs, though, and you're all doing some great work.

Meanwhile, I'm steadily paring down my possessions and packing the necessities for the big move. Time is moving faster now, thank goodness, and I just can't wait to leave this burg. I'll miss my girlfriend more than I can say, but I'll be happy to see this place in my rearview mirror.

Enjoy your summer--weather here is fantastic, for a change. Sunshine and cool breezes, as opposed to the usual rain.

No fun when you don't have to work for it, huh.

Good luck with the moving. Few things are more annoying than that!

Ugh, I hate moving. Good luck with that!

You are leaving and I did not get to meet up with you!!!

But wow - what a moment, I am so damn excited and happy for you.

Good luck with the packing and the move. And I agree with your post. My reaction now is generally a yawn.

CDP--it's gonna be hard but fun!

Randal--indeed.

Kirby--and that's just what I'm looking for. Every few years, I just have to do it.

GKL--we're driving through a little of Colorado, swinging down a bit to drive through the Pawnee Ntl Grasslands.

Fran--I was thinking about that just this morning. Dammit!

PiNY--well, something I just saw stirred me up. Post is forthcoming.

Moving is always bittersweet, isn't it?

Best of luck with the move, both physically and emotionally!

What an adventure! Try to keep the trolls out of your suitcase.

Let me know when you get to NorCal. You will be in the neighborhood of my big brother and my sister Karlacita!
