I agree, but Hmmm I don't agree

In my last post. the Wonderful Sarge Charlie, took issue with my tolerance level of GW and DICK and I knew he would. Sarge, I am glad you and I can agree to disagree. The prosecution of this war is GW's alone to direct constitutionally. We are there and thousands of American kid's lives rely on having a Commander in Chief. I get it. Unlike GW I do not believe we can win the hearts and minds of the Afgans and Iraquies. and lead them to anything that remotely looks like democracy. Like you, I think there has to be one place where the buck has to stop and the Commander in Chief is in the Oval Office is that spot, no matter who is there.

I personally can not listen to him, I mean I really can not stand the sound of his voice. He irritates me on so many levels, almost all of his politics. immigration, stem cell. personal choice in our private lives. He should not let his personal faith beliefs or personal relationship to big business control what the majority of Americans see as needed like health, like jobs we would do if we could make a living doing it.

His Republican party is not the one I originally signed up for and next time I move and register it will be independant. because the party in charge of legislation on the hill is worrisome to me as well, from a fiscal and big government standpoint. I think the results of the immigration bill that both sides were pushing, shows no one in DC is completely in touch with mainstream America. and maybe now some folks up there are listening to what their constituents are telling them.

Also Dick Cheney is a bad old man! He is old school politics of the worst kind and I am glad he is not in charge of anything but deciding tie votes, wink,wink, nudge, nudge! As if!

Finish The Sentence Survey Meme

'Pinched' from Akelamalu who pinched it herself. I love the word pinched!!

Maybe I should….Come clean about the cookie dough in the fridge!

I love……Mr Bankerchick, the daughters Bankerchick 1&2 and ice cream

People would say that I …..can't possibly be turning 60 next month,my skin is so smooth. I just tell them put on a few pounds and the wrinkles pop out!

I don’t understand…..What my SIL is talking about when he is explaining his work. I just know he has a Phd. in Engineering Smart Stuff.

When I wake up in the morning…..I remember I have to go to work it is wonderful when I wake up on Saturday and remember I don't have to go to work.

I lost….40 pounds for DD1's wedding and swore I wouldn't put them back on......I guess I lied!

Life is full of….Interesting twists, turns and surprises, oh wait that is my kid's lives. Mine is a little ho hum! Then we do something fun and interesting, then ho hum again!

My past is…... Currently being stored away in an offsite storage space along with Mr BC's MG's. I do know where the key is though.

I get annoyed when…..I can't remember the simplest things I did yesterday or the day before, but can remember everything I ever knew about banking.

Parties are….. Great fun when SIL's Serbian relatives are there!

I wish…..we could cut our losses in the Mideast and pull the boys and girls out but it is not realistic, I truly think we are stuck there.

Dogs (my new Puppie) .... Are full of vim and vigor and great fun to come home to..after a long day at work.

Cats…..can be the Devil's spawn one minute and your best friend the next if they are hungry

Tomorrow…..I am going to buy a new fridge, a Maytag side by side.

I have a low tolerance…..for George Bush and the antichrist... Dick Cheney. I turn them off when they are speaking on TV or Radio then read what they spewed, on the internet. Actually I have a low tolerance for all politicans of any persuasion, and pretty much the Press as well.

If I had a million dollars….. I'd buy a house for my kids and then move in with them.

This was fun and easier to do than a Thursday Thirteen........Thank you Akelamalu

Time to Talk Puppy

Gwinnie is 3 months old and we have had her three weeks now. She essentially came house broken, she has had only a couple of accidents and sleeps thru the night in her crate.
What a smart dog a corgi is.... at least my corgi is smart, and adorable and loving. Many large sloppy kisses every morning then all day long. She does chew alot, however we try to distract her, and with the crate training she is not left alone to chew stuff that she shouldn't. Corgi's have really short legs and they sleep on their back quite a bit, so she is very funny even when she is asleep, (I could say the same about Mr Bankerchick!)
DD2 who is here all the time, has taken a great interest in the pup and we all are in love. She makes us happy even when it is hard. We all walk around the house talking to the dog, smiling a lot and making funny noises. She pulls DD1 hair and there is a funny touchdown dance they both do, and at the end they are both pooped out.
She fetches and sits and is afraid to go out the front door. We have started to leash train but she does not want to move. Walking outside is still not a skill she is happy with yet, but Mr BC perseveres.
