Monday, Monday. It never ends. I really used to love summers. But they used to be like really long weekends.
I don't know that everyone was that lucky. But I was. We'd finish up the semester in May and then it would be months off until the fall when school started back up. And that was just so much fun. Especially when I was a little kid because not only did I have fun playing with my friends, I also had older brothers and sisters and usually one of them wanted to use the car and the rule was they'd have to take the youngest (me and my kid sister) somewhere before they could go off to where ever they wanted. So we'd go to the park or a store or something fun. Maybe a movie. There was just always fun stuff.
But no time for fun stuff as an adult. :(
I do get to have fun with our daughter. That's fun. Best part of the day is picking her up. And she's like, "Daddy! Daddy! Daddy!" So I feel like a super hero or something. :D
I also don't care for the heat. But anyway.
Isaiah's The World Today Just Nut's "The Shooting Range" went up yesterday.
That's funny and true. Barack tried to grab credit for killing bin Laden (the Navy Seals were ordered to do that) but the only thing Barack killed himself was the economy.
He had plenty of chances to work on it. But over and over he chose to focus on other things. ObamaCare and other things should have waited. Damn should have waited. Barack's focus should have been on the economy. Instead, he treated it as an after thought.
He's got no one to blame but himself.
My stomach's killing me tonight (which is part of the reason I'm in this mood). After I picked up my daughter, we went by the park and I grabbed a hot dog and it did not agree with me at all. I knew that about 10 minutes after I finished it.
So let me note Third and wrap up. Here's who worked on the latest edition:
The Third Estate Sunday Review's Jim, Dona, Ty, Jess and Ava,

Wally of The Daily Jot,
Trina of Trina's Kitchen,

And you don't want to be sick to your stomach in the heat of the summer. I'm going to take a cold shower and see if that helps any. Otherwise, I'm going out to get some Pepto Bismol.
Here's C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
