July 6: POTUS Turns 60



Apparently, 60 is the new 50.

What an inspiration for Boomers everywhere (as Bush 41 is for seniors)

Kelly,

You speak of the politics of Christian denominationalism, I assume.

I must admit my ignorance in the field, although I am sure your observation is devilishly clever.

I must say that GW is looking sharp for 60.

I was quoting Monty Python from the Life of Bryan. So, I can't take credit.

Though the movie is quite sacreligious, the lines are rather funny.

My Dad has recited those lines at many a family gathering.

is john off on another fishing trip?

He is likely on vacation. But he has a knack for starting a topic and then letting it run its course.

Nothing like starting a conversation and then leaving the room to let your guests talk it out.

At least this time it wasn't a fire that he started.

I still think he's amazingly handsome for being 60. =) I adore my Bushy.

If john wants to moderate, that will entitle proving he hasnt posted in 15 days because he's just being lazy.

John, next time you leave us to house sit, leave us the key. ;)


On a sad note [off topic]:

kelly - sick people everywhere you turn these days. people who prey on the most innocent are extremely ill and like a rabid dog, need to be put to sleep posthaste. they are defective, not by nature - but by choice. of course it had to have started somewhere and perhaps his parents should be held accountable also. there is no punishment harsh enough for this animal.

5:23 PM

Nanc, this animal hasn't even had contact with his family for several years.

Ok really. Where the heck are you? There are major political upheavals going on up here in CT and you're not around!!!

2:55 PM  
Blogger Kelly said...

hey all, he's on vacation. He's been working hard all year. We wouldn't want him to get burned out now would we?

He needs his R and R before getting back in the ring.

So, why are we waiting around for John to discuss political/world events?

Let's start with the conflict in Israel. I know Nanc shares my views on the subject. How do the rest of you feel about it and why?

12:14 AM  
Blogger nanc said...

i think somebody needs to photoshop some silver sideburns onto the potus as he's aged quite a bit since this was posted...think i'll go contact reuter's for that guy's phone number!

anybody catch the headlines at drudge today?

4:33 PM  
Blogger Kelly said...

At Nanc's request:

the updated picture

I think with more time I could do it more justice...but we get the picture.

8:00 PM  
Blogger nanc said...

thank you, kelly, but i also have a little more silver in my own hair since my birthday...

i wish my husband would take a month off - jeesh.

the prez will need dentures before john gets back!

hehehe!!!

8:51 PM  
Blogger nanc said...

p.s. - kelly? you work for reuter's?

8:52 PM  
Blogger Kelly said...

sorry, Nanc, no job at reuters.

But I do have a great copy of Photoshop.

Hmm...how do you portray dentures?

How about a few more gray ones coming out the ears??

9:52 PM  
Blogger nanc said...

i don't have a denture in my mouth! several thousand dollars in crowns though - and being of native background, about the only place i'm thickhaired is my nearly waistlength head of coarse hair. and it is quite silver.

9:45 PM  
Blogger John said...

Excellent. Consider this a coffee house of sorts for now...

Kafir, I hope to make it up to you in the near future.

12:47 PM  
Blogger nanc said...

just curious, what sort of job allows someone to take over a month off? and where may i get one?

10:07 AM  
Blogger Kelly said...

I know school teachers who get a month off...or more.

12:18 PM  
Blogger Kelly said...

So, John, when you get back, we sure would like another pic to look at when we come to your blog ;)

Not that we don't like Bush...we do, but we have tried giving him more gray hair or whatever...it still doesn't help that we see the same picture whenever we stop by.

C'mon John. You can't truly say that the leftists beat the gumption out of you can you?

I hope you are enjoying life, actually, and I do very much understand the need to get out of the mode of arguing with (sometimes) pretty uninformed people. Still.....I do find the time to write about every two weeks or so for Salmagundi......

Maybe I could talk you into posting about the up-coming elections? Or dog breeding? Or something??

I will check back later amigo.

4:47 PM  
Blogger Kelly said...

I want to echo what phelonius has just said.

I would also like to know if you are OK. I am sure there are others who feel the same.

We liked hanging out in here because you seemed like a decent guy with a great head on his shoulders. Do we miss you? You bet we do.

September 19, 2006 (Really late at night),

Nanc, do you mean "outer space"?

How about Mongolia (OUTER)??

I decided to bring a weed whacker with me today. Even the grass is growing too tall for a mower to get through. It really could use some dusting inside, but the door is locked. It sure would be nice to hang a different picture of Bush on his mantel...don't ya think??

Perhaps John could add the two of us to his blog so we could decorate a bit.

Hi Kell. I've got a lot of backed up posts that haven't seen the light of day because I haven't had the time to finish them--I've been away for four months but will return to my Arlington HQ in time to vote...

...and hopefully get back in the groove.

I am guessing that those secret CIA missions to overthrow Hugo Chavez, infiltrate the government of South Africa and force Isreal out of Lebanon have tired John out. You just cannot be a secret agent and keep up a web-site anymore. What is this world coming to?
