…but I’d like to thank everyone who has hit the tip jar this weekend, that managed to pay for the rental and Stacy has been hitting the Gas so that has covered the trip.

Not to mention a huge thank you to the Lonely conservative and her husband who are slightly less lonely since they are allowing Stacy and I not only Crash but allowing us to snarf their internet to allow us to post.

Finally as I was writing this post I found out that my wife’s Aunt Shirley just died today. She single-handedly saved out honeymoon when Citi Travel didn’t take care of our booking. She and Uncle Bob gave us the use of their guest house and their spare car and the money we saved became the down payment for our house.

We can never repay her for that kindness and we will never forget.

An FYI Off with my son today… UPDATE Funspot blogging!

In NH conservatives aren't the silent type

to Funspot. Today’s posts will be mostly scheduled so approval of comments might be slow. I don’t know if they have wi-fi but I don’t know if I really want to spend time posting from there.

If you want to see my post about Funspot, the largest arcade in the world it is here.

Update: My son and his young lady classmate are off playing games and my hands are a little sore from 2 hours + of pinball so taking a break to use the Wi-fi and blog a little to give em a rest.

One of my many Nephews (Italian Family you know) has very little in common with me: I am bald he has a full head of hair, He is ripped I am fat, I wear a beard, he is clean shaven, he plays several instruments from violin to guitar, I don’t. He is very single and looking, I’ve been married for 22 years, I am very Catholic, he is not but we discuss and debate religion whenever we talk.

We both however have one thing in common and that’s a very different set of priorities than the Ewock Women of Emily’s list.

The Ewock women of Emily’s list publicly support abortion with every fiber of their being. They consider it such a priority that they declare the willingness to sacrifice the lives of their grandchildren as an expression of love for their daughters.

My nephew Matt has told me that it is a Sine Non Qua before even considering dating a woman that she be pro life. In Massachusetts that really narrows the field, when asked he told me bluntly. “I don’t want to end up with any woman willing to slaughter our daughter or son.”

My no drugs, no booze no sex rules not withstanding, I would never want any grandchild of mine to ever think I disappointed by their birth. I would much rather see rings on fingers first, but whenever they come, I will be pleased to see them.

It’s is love vs hate. Matt and I love our children and grandchildren that we have never seen so much that we will sacrifice to protect them. The Ewock of Emily’s list, a group that is supposed to be exist to advance women in office, hate Sarah Palin so much that they proudly declare their grandchildren expendable.

The news will still be there

Yeah I’m up a little later than normal, but it’s always important to remember that there will always be a new headline and a new annoyance in the news to opine about on the hour ever hour, but the wife next to you is a precious gift.

Never forget that when you make a tweet and a snark more important that the person who shares your bed, eventually you will share it only with your laptop and the people you speak to from afar.
