Hells YES we celebrate the Fourth in this house

And the Queen’s birthday and Squirrel Appreciation Day and Talk Like a Pirate Day. If there’s a celebration — particularly one that involves food, booze or fireworks — I’m yer weasel. (Image pinched from previous Fourth).

Just occurred to me. If I get my act together this year, this might be the last Fourth of July I ain’t British. OH NOES!

Happy Independence Day, everyone!

I’m celebrating by working. 🙁 At least I get double time plus another vacation day. Last week I wasted 3 of my minimal vac. days being sick. Feh.


Love to you and B!

Need translation:
Na na ni-nuh na, ni nu-nu-nu-nu-NUH!
I consulted my Mork Dictionary but nothing matched… Google Translate? HAH!

It’s an old illustration. I think I was probably humming the Stars and Stripes Forever.

I do that. It’s a great favorite.

Happy 4th July, rebels!

Can’t stop… must watch… It’s the law.

I got dragged to an outdoor event at a church in the suburbs. If I had known it was titled “Feed the Multitudes,” I’d have been even surer what I was in for. However, I predicted most of it: parking the car in an open lot so that it was an oven when I returned; temps at 90+ F. even at 10-11 am; crowds of “people” in shorts and T-shirts, most fatter and uglier than specimens of Homo erectus; a chicken breast slathered with sauce, so as to cover my hands and my beard and mustache; no place to sit indoors, so I had to squat on the ground in some “shade” (which here is only less hot than in the sun, not cooler) . . . you get the picture.

Oh, and buses to run us back and forth between parking lot and church grounds. When did America get so crowded that you can hardly ever park at your destination?

All of this = Inner Circle of Hell, for yours truly. But I was home in the A/C by noon, thank goodness. I hope the rest of you had a pleasant holiday!

I fixed the US Postal service’s mail box in front of my house because it was a postal holiday and got my first solid red neck of the season as a reward.
I had to make my own hot dogs when I was done!
Shiner Home Spun Cream Ale is too light when I wanted something with more zip and I knew damn well I should have bought New Castle Brown instead but that wouldn’t have been “Merican” so I didn’t.

But I really ain’t complaining because…

Hillary Clinton will NEVER be President of the NewKnighted States 🙂

Belated Happy 4th to all (a.k.a. “Brexit 1776”)

Ms. Weasel – What would be the advantage to you in becoming a citizen of the UK (instead of just getting permanent immigrant status)?

If this is too nosy, feel free to delete this. Or just ignore it.

I have permanent immigrant status currently, Ivan. I feel fairly insecure about it, though. It’s easily revocable.

The way things are going over here, I’ve posted stuff on this blog that’s not far off legally actionable. The politics of [current year] are just too volatile for me to risk it.

It makes me sick how easily one can find them in legal trouble in the UK. And we are headed in that direction, too. Never thought I would see the day that our 1rst Amend rights would be so infringed by the gov and the MSM.

Serious question then – can you get into trouble with the author-ih-ties for things WE say on your blog?

@durnedyankee –

IANAL (nor a barrister nor solicitor), but as I understand it, the libel laws in the UK are strict, the penalties are severe, and truthfulness is not an absolute defense. (??!!!!)

And as the “publisher” of the material here (even if authored by others), Our Gracious Hostess is personally liable.

Maybe somebody will take out a SUPERINJUCTION on stoaty? That would be exciting.

@Mad Ivan
Thank you for the heads up.
Certainly not right for imaginary friends to get the lady and gentleman “nicked”.
Especially uninvited imaginary friends!
