Thursday Already?

I've not been paying attention and keeping myself occupied with assorted nonsense and I realized that it's Thursday! Only two days until the Buckeyes meet the Wolverines at "The Big House," as U. of M's stadium is nicknamed and that means most Buckeye fans will be watching the game on television somewhere.

* Today I go back to Dr. Jamie to see if my eye is better. I hope it's good news. I think it's much better.

* Since I'm prolly going to have company Saturday, I'm going to have to do some housework. It's nothing that clearing clutter, dusting and my sweeper can't cure in an hour or so. And oh yeah, a trip to the grocery will happen tomorrow. Friday will be insane.

* I found some interesting stuff re: Sarah Palin that I'll write about next week. The woman amazes me in some of the things she says and does.

* In keeping with this week's theme, here's Columbus Police and Fire Pipes and Drums performing The Ohio State Fight Song at the Dublin (Ohio) Irish Festival. I thought it great fun!!!!

Happy Blogging and Gooooooooooooo Buckeyes!!!!!!



  1. It's scaring me that her book is a bestseller and people are lining up to buy it. Are there really that many people out there who think she should be president? This is a scary world and getting scarier by the minute.

  2. She has the same following she had during the election-- tea baggers; so the numbers are bound to look impressive. What gets me is the reasonable seeming people who don't get it that a pathological liar (meaning her lies aren't for protection but purely ego enhancement), someone who holds grudges and delivers payback, someone who has no interest in details or learning the basis for anything, someone who is easily manipulated by those who want to put them in a position of power to use it, someone who follows a religious fundamentalist agenda, someone who ridicules intellectuals and talks of commonsense as though you don't need educating to have it, that kind of person is very scary in a position of great power. The question will be for the sake of our country, how big is that part of the country who doesn't care about those things?

    Hope you have a great week-end and that your eye is much better.

  3. The Wolverines are toothless and the Buckeyes should wipe the grass with them.

    Re the other Kay's comment: Didn't H L Mencken say that nobody ever went broke underestimating the basic stupidity of the American public.

  4. I loved the pipers playing the Ohio fight song. But then I have always loved celtic music. Anyone remember Sean Conery's line in 'The Longest Day' after his buddy complains about the bleeding racket from the bagpiper? "It takes an Irishman to play the pipes.' Hope your Buckeyes win and thankfully I don't have any emotional investment here.

  5. I do love a Pipe and Drum band. Thanks for posting.

  6. Ah, by the time I got to the end, I knew that Buckeyes had something to do with football....

  7. Your enthusiasm for THE game is so much fun! I'm enjoying the videos you're posting and you make me smile.

  8. hey...i'm tempted to spam a little here and say GO BLUE!! but i will respect your space. both my grandpa and my dad graduated from U of M. always a good game between ohio and michigan....

  9. I hope your eye is better too and that you get some good news about it.

    Wishing you a great weekend.

  10. Guess you got all your Thurs. chores done, so you can wrap up everything on Fri. Then, you gotta be ready for that Sat. game.

    Haven't heard if my Ann Arbor family members are going to the game or not.

    Like those Irish pipers!
