Good Morning Campers,
The Marines have a motto … Semper Fi which is short for Semper Fidelis or Latin for “Always Faithful”. I have a motto also, that comes in handy, quite often. Semper Gumby. Which is dragon for “Always Flexible”. And that seems to be ever so much apparent lately. This weekend has been a mother bear of jumping from one barn fire to the next. You may have noticed a lack of an issue on Saturday (I did warn you guys, after all) and it’s debatable whether this one will make it out on time for Monday’s roll call as it’s already late on Sunday and I’m just now getting started, it’s been a tough couple of days. But, I do want to say that you guys have been great. I’ve gotten several messages of cheer and several of good wishes and prayers for us, so thanks for that. They all help a great deal.
Mrs. Dragon and I had all of our tests last Wednesday and are still waiting for our results and although I usually espouse the “no news is good news” mantra with medical tests I have found that negative results usually arrive quite quickly while bad news comes much slower. Now that could just be my general pessimistic outlook that I’ve adopted lately and everything going to crap (for instance, I’m STILL waiting on word on my tax refund … it’s been 10 weeks even though their crappy ass website says it’s not supposed to take more than 3!!!!) and it seems that Murphy is hard at work in my life right now. So waiting for word on these test results is getting me a little bit TESTY!!!!
So …. Semper Gumby – always flexible.
Stay froggy Impish. Always ready to jump! And don’t worry…when I know something, you guys will know something.
So, in the meantime, let’s get some sort of issue out so you guys can have some sort of laughter, shall we?
Okay, not very funny, but it is very appropriate.
Accidently used the dog’s shampoo today and I’m feeling like such a good girl.

Well, don’t beat around the bush, tell us how you really feel.
Yup, even the little ones have attitude.
If we’re ever in a situation where I am the “voice of reason” the we are in a very, very bad situation.
Young enough to know I can.
Old enough to know I shouldn’t.
Stupid enough to do it anyway.
That’s my blouse you bitch!
You know how when your appliance is malfunctioning, you smack it with your hand and then it is all good again? Too bad we can’t do that to people!
Every time you feel yourself being pulled into other people’s nonsense, repeat these words: “not my circus, not my monkeys.” ~ Polish Proverb In the original Polish: Nie moj cyrk, nie moje malpy (Mrs. Dragon found the original)
You seriously have no idea what people are dealing with in their personal life so just be nice, it’s that simple.
Eggs are fantastic for a fitness diet.
If you don’t like the taste, just add cocoa, flour, sugar, butter, baking powder, and cook at 350 for 30 minutes.
I’M GIVING UP ALCOHOL FOR A MONTH!
Wait … I got that wrong.
I’M GIVING UP. ALCOHOL FOR A MONTH.
Now here is a really cool story that I NEVER knew anything about. I had always heard the “joke” … the Americans spent a million dollars on the pen and the Russians just used a pencil, but here is the TRUTH:
A la Paul Harvey – Now you know, the REST of the story.
I have just one word for beautiful women with questionable morals, poor decision making skills, and an insatiable sex drive:
And sadly, that has to be it for today. Love and happiness to you all.
Not Knowing . . . it’s such a curse! Once I know, then I can focus all my energies on the what to do about it. Before knowing, it’s live wires shorting out all over my brain.
So, what ever the results are, I hope you know soon.
