      (MANDOS POST MANDOS POST MANDOS POST MANDOS POST) In a weird twist of fate, American liberals and (some) leftists are finding themselves in the non-traditional position of standing in the “hawk” corner, while (some) American conservatives under Trump are in the position of wanting to cut deals with so-called traditional enemies of the USA.  Whether […] […]

Scenes from a tent in Trump Country. 

Stuck in a tent during the rain. 

Darryl: The air mattress is de-flated a little. You might have to, you know…

Charlene:  Ok, I’ll blow it and you tell me when it’s firm enough. 


Charlene: I walked right into that, didn’t I?

Darryl: I’m not saying anything. 

Charlene: Pass me the bourbon. 

Morning after an all night downpour:

Darryl: Did I see a big fleece hoodie in your car?  

Charlene: Would you like me to get it for you?

Darryl: If you wouldn’t mind. I’m freezing. 

Charlene: Anything for you. Just say the word. 


Darryl:  Which word do I say?  You’re not going to make this easy on me are you?  Antidisestablishmentarianism 

Charlene: {{chortling softly and turning over}} Nope. Guess again. 

Darryl:  We can’t see the grill. 

Charlene: Or anything else. Screw it, let’s go get pancakes at a diner. You have to drive. I can’t find my glasses. 

Darryl: I gotta grab a hat or they won’t let me in the door. 

Charlene: {{peeking at hair in ponytail and no mascara in the mirror}} I don’t look all that hot either. 

Darryl:  That means we are fitting in. We have butter snaps!  We won’t starve!!

Charlene: {{waiting for omelet and singing loudly along to Queen on jukebox}} Another one rides the bus, Another one rides the bus, and another gets on, and another gets on, another one rides the bus. 

Darryl:  {{peering over his kindle- dead giveaway}} Alright, Charlene, this isn’t a karaoke bar. 

A little later

Darryl: You should read this article about gerrymandering if I can figure out where it’s from.  By someone at CNN. 

Charlene: {{googling}}

Darryl: How do you spell that? 

Charlene: G-E-R-R-Y-M-A-N-D-E-R-I-N-G

Darryl: no

Charlene: that’s not how you spell it?  

Darryl: I meant CNN. C-N-?

Waitress brings breakfast. 

Charlene: Can I have some of your sausage?

Darryl: {{running with it}}. Go ahead Charlene. Take a bite. It’s a big thick sausage. You know you want to. Juicy and delicious. 

{{Charlene loses it. Can’t stop laughing.}}

Darryl: {{not letting up}}. Go ahead, order some pie. 

Darryl pulls into gas station 

Charlene: Why are we stopping here?

Darryl: Because you’re on a quarter tank. 

Charlene: I was going to stop on the way home. 

Darryl: We’re going to do it now. {{pulling up to pump}}

Charlene: You’re on the wrong side. 

Darryl: Damn Japanese car

Charlene: It’s Korean. 

Darryl:  I’ll bet it’s NORTH Korean. It’s got the gas thing on the north side of the car. 

{{Darryl fumbles for the gas latch and pops the hood}}

Charlene: {{laughing}} Where did you get your PhD?

Darryl: Shuddup, Charlene. I’m checking the oil.

  1. Darryl: I’m not saying anything.
    Charlene: Pass me the bourbon.
    Darryl: I thought you didn’t drink?
    Charlene: I just need something to get this taste out of my mouth.

  2. Right, stop that.

  3. I hope you and BiFF are enjoying your camping weekend.

    This Memorial Day today, is also the centennial of John F. Kennedy’s birthday (May 29, 1917).

    I knew he had a May birthday, but I had not looked it. The NYT had this op-ed piece today.

    Riverdaughter I think you would like the 5th paragraph from the end.

    • Thanks, JMS! Are you the one from central NJ who remembers my school board days?

      • No, I live in a western suburb of Chicago.

      • That would be me… moved out west in 1999, now back in Allentown PA. Lived on the corner of Longfield Dr, and Amwell. (The hose with all the flowers)

        • ARGGHHH… no edit.. HOUSE

        • Is that the east side of 206? I live in Pittsburgh these days.
          Been so long since I was on the BoE. Funny that anyone remembers that long ago. Should I have stuck with it?

  4. An intrusion into RD’s flirtation with nature:

    The Con knew who he is conning.

  5. The buffoon wants to show off his buffoonery. But it is a day of solemnity remembering those who lost their lives for you and a few lives have already been lost under his order. What a buffoon!
