Fawn


18 comments:

  1. The Fawn lives at Robin's Roost. It first hid in the tall grasses beside his house, and he could see it only from the upstairs window. It visited the Housewarming party, and one day it ran past son Robin as he was sitting on his steps, while a thunderstorm was approaching. The Fawn is getting bigger.

  2. Now, with a bow to our love of art and disdain for the current Administration, and with a hat tip to poor ol' Spicey:

    1. Poor o' Spicey? What about poor Melissa McCarthy?

      P.S.: I did like the paintings--particularly the first one...

  3. Here [Click] is Josh Marshall on the latest Trump vs Mueller et al. contretemps. Looks like only way out for The Donald involves passing the veil. Or seeking political asylum. Or how about an extended stay at Fort Jefferson? [Click] It was considered satisfactory for Dr. Mudd, after all. Here [Click] is another informative web site. Maybe The Donald and his friends could be allowed to restore the facilities! Living out one's days in a tropical paradise at government expense--what a deal!

    1. Yes, I would prefer he cross the veil, but he could do that just as well at Fort Jefferson. Oddly enough I'm reading a novel by Nevada Barr right now that is set in Fort Jefferson in the present day.

    2. That's quite a coincidence, certainly. Considering other possible accommodations, The Presidential Suite at Fort Monroe [Click] was said not to have been up to Jefferson Davis' standards of accommodation [Click], but the food has probably improved in the interval.

    3. Hmmmmm…that second link doesn't work; it was intended to link to a political cartoon of Jeff Davis complaining about the food in Fort Monroe.
      Click here, then on the cartoon, and the magnifying glass figure at the bottom right of the illustration.

    4. Ft. Jefferson sounds like a lovely retirement spot for the Donald, especially considering the hurricanes and yellow fever the spot is prone to.

  4. Today was the 14th annual Disability Pride Parade. After it rained all yesterday evening and night, it turned out sunny and pleasantly cool downtown for the parade. (Not so cool once I got home to Oak Park.) Fourteen years without rain on the parade!

    And so another parade is done except for writing maybe a dozen and a half checks, a possible wrap-up meeting, and the celebration dinner. Whoo-hoo!

    1. It wouldn't dare rain on your parade, Bill. *grin*

    2. 14 years without rain on the parade is quite a record!! Wonderful!

  5. Ooooo…Russia Sanctions Bill in the Offing! [Click] Happy whatever, Trumpy! More here. [Click]

    A Long-Hidden Memo Says President Can Be Indicted [Click] From Ken Starr's investigation of Clinton…

    Rumors abound that Trump's lawyers are dumping him, not the other way around--they want no part of a constitutional crisis. Other rumors becoming louder that Trump may fire Mueller in mid-August (ignoring the fact that he can't do it directly, but must drill down through the people at the DOJ to find someone to do the deed--just as Nixon did. But even if he does so, the investigation would continue.

    NYT interview with Trump, annotated. [Click] Sounds to me like he has some sort of parasite larvae crawling around in his brain.

    1. Casting a shadow? I'd say the admin. is under a full eclipse!

      Yeah, the parasite larvae hypothesis sounds right on to me.

    2. At last the Ken Star investigation has earned it's keep. I guess if you wait long enough every boondoggle has a silver lining.

    3. As for the investigation continuing, Congress could always appoint Mueller (or someone) *its* Special Counsel. Ken Starr was appointed by Congress. Which is why it would really make no sense for Trump to try to fire Mueller. Not that we necessarily expect sense from Trump.

    4. Excellent news and excellent point!
