6:19 Not that this looks like it, but Spanish architecture is often actually Muslim architecture.

MSNBC - Yes, we'll have to depend on states to secure their own. It's therefore an even better thing than we thought that so many states turned blue ... but I'm still worried.

OSFM - How nice!

TNY - There's a "Mueller Book Club" which can be joined (in time for the third session) which put out a reading schule, demanding but not impossible, to read and than join an online (and possibly phone - I'm not sure) discussion group on that portion. I think the second session was last night (it may have been Tuesday). I do know that Jerry Nadler was a special guest. That said, can we call him the former special counsel yet? Also, the firestorm would have been even greater if so many Americans were not ashamed to admit they cannot read.

Cartoon - I think most wmen have a love-hate relationship with it. Except for the ones who just won't wear one at all. That would be pure hate.

Wow TC try the supervisor or manager at CCC.

When I watch The View Joy always says she hates her bra and takes it off as soon as she comes home. I love my bra! It feels so comfortable.

My library branch is closed for a year for remodeling. It was getting worse than shabby! The branch I chose as fill is a subway ride away. It's really the L but you need to be in Chicago to get that. So anyway I picked the new branch because it's brand new. It's like being rich! However I am waiting for 2 books with long waiting lists so I bough Esquire. That will take 6 months to read!

MSNBC: McConnell is guilty of dereliction, deceitful behavior. What a spiteful individual. As are the whole lot of R's. ugh!

OSFM: Pretty Suh-weet!!

NYer: Word !!!

Cartoon: Ahhh....the good old shoulder boulder holder. lol

While it's frustrating for you about moving, that's more days in which you can rest and relax and get things done...imho. It rained hard last night, lightening/thunder/wind and with mature trees fallen from the winds and roads blocked with debris, and an hour long disruption of power. I like sitting in the dark and don't mind it, but it has to be on my terms, not the electrical transformers right up the street.

*This just in: Well, if this didn't get my goat.. "The Navy was reportedly directed by the White House to keep the destroyer John S. McCain hidden during a Memorial Day visit by President Donald Trump to U.S. Fleet Activities Yokosuka."
2. "Republicans for the Rule of Law (RRL), a conservative group whose stated purpose is “defending the institutions of our republic,” will advertise on Fox & Friends next week to urge members of Congress to hold President Donald Trump accountable for the findings in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report. MUELLER DID HIS JOB... NOW DO YOURS! *Newsweek

So Son-of-a-Bitch McConnell blocked bills intended to stymie election interference? That speaks volumes about his ethics.

McConnell has no ethical footing, nor an ethical bone in his body.  He will go down inhibitory as the poster boy for "scumbag!"

Oregon knows value when see it.

New Yorker: Reading, I just read, earlier this evening, is only 5,000 years old, but, if it's not the National Enquirer, or People magazine, too many Americans just get a headache in trying to decipher those funny little squiggles on the paper.

'Toon: Not going to touch that one with a 9 foot pole!

What a lousy no good bas*ard mCconnell is blocking these bills. Well we know where he deserves to hell.
Sorry to hear about the person being out of the office. I would just take my time doing the packing at a slower pace, to where you won't get surprised if it changes for any reason.
Had appointments today, so running I'm late.
Take care. Thanks TomCat
