Hee! I love "The man with the mustache that repels bullets".

Can he be president next time? Please?

If wishes were mustaches . . . :-)

Twitter, Gawd love it, is blogging for people with ADHD. But the Twitter 140 word limit, while forcing posters to carve away unessential verbiage, also forces the elimination of so much evocative language. It is like an Instamatic compared to a 4 x 5 Crown Graphic.

Brevity may be the soul of wit... but sometimes I like my wit with a little meat on its bones. To use a feminine metaphor, give me Sophia Loren over Calista Flockhart any old day.

I'm nobody! Who are you?

Like Wilson liberals tend to be ignorant about how things are and what made America great.

Perhaps Tiny isn't talking because she's contemplating a Palin/Bolton ticket in '12.

She DOES seem to have a smile playing about her lips . . .

I haven't quite glommed onto twittering yet, and I am not sure that I will. I agree with Elisson - there is something intellectually delicious about starting out in one place, and coming out of a post with an entirely new perspective, something less likely to happen in 140 characters.
Certainly there is a discipline of thought required to express oneself in only 140 characters. But to journey though the wonders of the English language, with real grammar? Ah, that is a true art. Combining the thought discipline (but not necessarily the 140 character limitation!) with the art? Priceless. And what I like about your blog.

Glad to hear all is starting to return to a more even keel. Who was it that said life wasn't going to be easy? I think that was you!

I miss the blog posts and the pictures....Glad you are all right, was about to miaow "Where are you,Sissy?" Not a Twitterer myself (tho the discipline of pruning verbiage would be good for me!) One mercy for my readers: finally found a new Blogger tool that allows one to insert a break in long posts w/ a Read More link.

I wish I could say I was busy twittering, but the fact of the matter is, while I manage to get blog posts out (sorta), I've been so darn busy working I haven't had time for much of anything *sigh*

That's what I get for taking a 4 day vacation (how dare I!). I have to say that 4 days without the constant bombardment of the computer monster was pretty nice. :-)

I'm glad Tiny is doing better. Sending some soothing pets her way.

I'm nobody... but I like to tell my tale
To an admiring blog.

I don't twitter because the first 4 letters are twit and I refuse to self-identify in such a manner! Besides on twitter how would we have the pics of the supremely beautiful and lovable Miss Tiny.

Have a great weekend y'all!

Put down the Twitter machine. Your fans and admirers miss you!
