Yeah, I know. Mr. Blog has been neglected for a bit. The reason is that we, at the House by the Parkway, have been hosting two
most excellent young ladies bonnie lassies from Scotland. They are close to the end of their ten-month odyssey, which has included places like Australia, New Zealand, Bali, Bangkok, and much of the U.S. They had spent some quality time with Eric and Mrs. Swg, then they did Washington, D.C. and Atlantic City before coming to the House by the Parkway.
Quite simply, it was wayyy more fun hanging with the two of them (one of whom was quite the guitar player), drinking beer, face-stuffing and watching the “telly,” than were any thoughts of blogging. Their being here also kept me away from the news, except for the horror in Colorado and the predictable “Ban all guns” baloney. However; even with only a paltry bit of news, I’m quite certain that Obama is still a piece of shit.
I look forward to someday seeing our new Scottish friends again, either here or there.
