    Does the baby have a name? Is little Greystokes staying with Bohdi? Inquiring minds want to know!

    So fracking adorable. I looked at Boghan, and I heard in my dead father’s voice “how can he see with all that hair in his face-get him a haircut today”

    Is that kitten staying?

    Why is the fur on Boghan from the neck up a different color than from the neck down? (Yes, I DO mean Boghan’s fur, NOT the kitten cuddled in his decolletage.)

    The kitten is adorable. Your website, however, leaves a lot to be desired. Does it have to do with the upgrade? I just got a new eight year old cat. Bonding is going slowly.

    I think we need an update – three have been adopted? What about 4th and mom? Are they staying or still looking for their forever homes?

    In other news:
    WBGO mentioned that today was Michael Franks’ 75th birthday, and, of course, played his classic “Popsicle Toes”.
    (As I told the young lady, “I’m not a foot fetishist, but I’m still looking for a sole mate”.)

    Got one of those messages from LinkedIn “Do you want to congratulate X on her new job?” And I did, and finally changed my ‘job title’ to ‘Retired’ and ‘industry’ to ‘Arts & Crafts’.

    Have great Thor’s Day, everyone, and a happy Equinox !

    My dog is whistling at me (yes she somehow knows how to whistle) because she wants to go out again. I keep taking her out but she doesn’t go – she just wants to sniff everywhere. It’s cold out.

    My wife bought some mangoes at the scratch-and-dent sale, and I have a pretty good crop of habaneros, so I decided to make a mango-habanero jam. I like spicy food, but this came out *spicy*. Will have to be tempered with a soft cheese or something.

    @Baud: Count me in as ‘some’…this is good, but only if Schiff presses the shit out of Maguire and gets some answers as to why he’s holding on to the whistleblower complaint from the IC.

    Closed session tomorrow; open session on the 26th. Let’s have at it, Dems. Someone way, way up there is clearly trying to suppress this complaint. Someone from the IC is trying to bring some sunlight on…trumpov? Jared? Barr? Who knows? But it needs to get out and get out now.

    This is a nice break from my 20th viewing of Barry Berke’s questioning of Lewandowski. Read pp. 90-92 of vol. 2 of the Mueller Report, then watch it, then tell me that the Democrats aren’t doing anything. I’ll laugh in your face.

    Sorry I broke the respite, but man — they are doing something!

    OK, now I get it. I thought the Burns doc was going to be every Sunday for 8 weeks so now I get all the references to episodes 2 and 3 last night. I can see how someone who doesn’t know anything about, or like the music, wouldn’t like it. For me it’s really good. I’m familiar with most of it, I had Bob Wills greatest hits 40 years ago and was immersed in the music like most of my posse. My wife doesn’t know much about any of it and she is enjoying is as well so that’s my story and I’m stickin to it!

    @Raven: on your advice we went to the Wedge yesterday late afternoon. The tide was low but the waves were impressive. We watched a group of surfers for a while. They didn’t take very long rides and only one didn’t get dumped. They were working hard and they looked like they were enjoying themselves.

    @Immanentize: South. Last Sunday was great, I was still hoping for this Sunday.

    I felt really bad, though, there was a guy in the water clearly looking for something, so I asked. He’d lost a necklace, made in part with his father’s WWII dog tag. In the surf zone, there was really no chance, but he was looking anyway. Really sad.

    @Jeffro: From the WaPo article:

    The whistleblower complaint that has triggered a tense showdown between the U.S. intelligence community and Congress involves President Trump’s communications with a foreign leader, according to two former U.S. officials familiar with the matter.

    Trump’s interaction with the foreign leader included a “promise” that was regarded as so troubling that it prompted an official in the U.S. intelligence community to file a formal whistleblower complaint with the inspector general for the intelligence community, said the officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.

    It was not immediately clear which foreign leader Trump was speaking with or what he pledged to deliver, but his direct involvement in the matter has not been previously disclosed. It raises new questions about the president’s handling of sensitive information and may further strain his relationship with U.S. spy agencies. One former official said the communication was a phone call.

    Hoo boy, indeed.

    RAVEN says:

    @Gin & Tonic: That happened to me when I stupidly put my stuff in a kayak seat bad with no zipper. I had just gotten my challenge coin from the Rhode Island guard unit and had two key fob, dog tags and a P 38! I got fins and a mask and swam back an forth for a couple of hours, zip.

    Immanentize says:

    @RAVEN: @Yarrow:

    @Immanentize: Charlestown. Horseneck is actually in Mass. Nice beach, but more of a drive for me, and no point going during the season – I get a season pass to the state beaches here for $15. Although going to Horseneck could mean a stop at Buzzard’s Bay Brewing…. Hmmm.

    Jeffro says:

    @Yarrow: “IHAVETHERIGHTTODISCLOSEANYTHINGIWANT!!!1!” – trumpov, late tonight or tomorrow morning.

    Sure thing, mr. president*. And we have the right to ask you what it was, and why you disclosed/promised it to foreign leader X, and to wonder about how you may have endangered the national security of the United States.

    @JAFD: Once I saw Michael Franks in concert at the Montreal Jazz Festival. I didn’t even know who he was, remember very little about the concert, but what I do remember is the drunk guy in the audience yelling “POPSICLE TOOOES” through the whole thing. Somebody yelled “SHUT UP” eventually.

  74. 74
    RAVEN says:

    @Immanentize: This spring a guy who had been watching me for a couple of days came running up with an encrusted rod and reel with a big lure that had washed up. I took it but didn’t think I wanted it so I took the lure and through the rest in the trash. When I told the guys at the bait shop they were shattered!

    ola azul says:


    Sounds all over like the newest shitweasel Supreme.

    Tho will say: Am very heartened to hear the authors divulged the extent of Kavanaugh’s slimey surreptition. Wish more journalists did likewise. If a “source”, whether it’s Jared or Ivanka or the Mooch or Kelley or whoever the fuck, knowingly and deliberately misleads/lies to a journalist, the implicit “pact” protecting that source from exposure by the journalist is, imo, invalid.

    Poor Maggie Haberman wouldn’t have nobody to talk to nomore!

    Kay says:


    Rick Hasen
    Talk about burying the lede. Here’s what the Times news analysis said over the weekend: “Mr. Kavanaugh did not speak to us because we could not agree on terms for an interview.”

    That’s technically true, I guess. Not really though, if “speak” means “speak”. Maybe he wrote it out, folded it into a tiny square, and passed it to them under the table.

    No, it’s hilarious! That phrase is spoken in a context where you’re being questioned by an opposing side’s lawyer, and your lawyer says, “Asked and answered,” meaning, “You [opposing lawyer] already asked that, and he [my client] already answered it.” Lewandowski keeps saying, “I already asked and answered that question.” None of them ever corrects him — I kept waiting for Berke to say, “I asked it, douchebag, not you!”

    @Matt McIrvin: I actually would, because Markey has had some “Joe Biden” moments recently. My neighbors the activists have seen him several times recently and he’s not tracking as well as he did in ’13 and ’14. He was my congressman before that, so I’m not surprised he’s having some slippage. When Markey chose to be nasty to JK3 in public, he had to know there’d be consequences.

    Yes, a Walther P-38, one of my best friends has one his dad brought back from Europe after the war.

    It’s in great shape, built in 1941 or ’42 IIRC, we don’t shoot it at all, on account of times it may have been shot in the war. At people who didn’t deserve shooting, perhaps. Sad, but still a fine piece of work for the time it was made.
