Shocking News!

The semester is off to a good start. Here in Greenville, we're bracing for some wintry weather overnight. My wife and I have finally figured it out. People here in the South must sit around and eat French toast when we get snow or freezing rain since beforehand they raid the stores for bread, milk, and eggs.

This Saturday is the Republican primary here in South Carolina, with the Democrat primary the following Saturday. We'll be glad eventually to be able to make it through dinner without half a dozen calls from volunteers, pollsters, and push-pollsters! In an effort to get our minds off the 2008 election that has been going on for almost a year already (!), here's a little something else to read.

This is old news, but I'm passing it along anyway as a reminder....

The Green Bay Packers delivered a shocking announcement today.

Their starting quarterback this Sunday will be Mrs. Brett Favre, who will play for Brett during the first quarter. Fans in Green Bay were shocked when this announcement was made, but Mrs. Favre assured the fans that, "Hey, I know this game. I live with Brett. I have taken several road trips on the team plane. I've gone to the pre-game meals. I know a lot of the Packers. I've played around with a lot of the Packers in the back yard. I've tossed the football with them, and I know what a slot right 60-Prevent-Slot-Hook-And-Go is and I know how to avoid a corner blitz."

So they polled the people in Green Bay, and 50% of Packers fans are excited, motivated, looking forward to the big game.

All right, you think that's ridiculous? Here's another announcement for you to reread:

In a shocking announcement today, Mrs. Hillary Clinton announced that she is running for president of the United States because she knows Bill Clinton and has lived with him, and she was there on a lot of trips to China and other places around the world, and she has really cared about kids for 35 years. She's fought for and stood up for kids, and she's tried to fix health care. She heard her husband speak about foreign policy and she thinks fifty percent of the American people say, "That's good enough for us."

I received a picture today that pretty well says it all!

So much for getting our minds off this stuff, huh!? I usually stay away from politics on my blog, but I figured that the vast majority of my readers (the "vast right wing conspiracy"?) would be far more amused than offended.

    Hi Rob or should I say Guten Abend Herr Loach,
    Traci (Porath Hobolth) Hopper often sends me things from your blog – but I didn’t make the connection until tonight! Nice to ‘hear’ from you!

    Carol, it’s nice to hear from you too! It’s been a long time since we talked. It had to have been in the last millennium! Yikes! We were delighted to spend an evening with Jeff Hollon and his wife this past summer at the 25 year reunion of the class of 1982. Speaking of 25 years – our “baby” (Mark) is 25 years old today! (Is that really possible?!) If I recall, you and Jeff were good friends in high school days, weren’t you? I’ll have to explore your blog soon. Take care, and thanks for writing!

    I saw one of Jeff’s comments just a few minutes ago! We’ve actually been in touch via email within the last hmmmm …couple years. ( I knew his wife when we were kids!) Cannot fathom that your kids are all grown up! Does Megan live up here in Michigan? Drew is adorable! My kids are 7 and 11 – that doesn’t seem possible either.

    The word ‘politics’ actually comes from two words. One being ‘poly’ meaning ‘many’ and the other being ‘tick’ meaning blood sucking creature.
