This is a totally open thread, but I’m sneaking in a reminder about the zoom tomorrow night.
Mark your calendars for this Thursday, 8/18 at 7:30 Eastern to zoom with Voces de la Frontera. No fundraising peeps this time – just the folks on the ground who can give us the scoop in their neck of the woods.
Fabi, Political Director, Voces de la Frontera Action
Yasmin, Canvass Manager (position we helped fund in 2021)
Minerva, Relational Voter Program Coordinator, Milwaukee
Jose, Relational Voter Coordinator, Racine
I am so looking forward to this! Send me an email if you would like the zoom link.
Okay, back to the open thread!
It’s my birthday today, and it wasn’t as bad a day as I expected. My new dear little dog jumped up off her four feet and I could see her head bobbing up and down in the window in the door when I got home from lunch with one of my dearest friends. I’ve never had a dog who could do that and it’s one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen. Then she did a 10 minute happy dance to greet me. My other new dog, who must have had a horrible life before I got her, chased her tail a few times today, and rolled around in the yard and seemed like like a happy girl. She’s starting to come out of whatever hell she’s been through, and that warmed my heart. I got some really nice cookies and brooches, and gummy lobsters, the only kind of lobsters I can eat, from a dear niece. Brothers and sister called. So a nice day, all things considered. Then I got mail from AARP, a bit of a bummer, but I’ll live.
@Juju: Happy birthday, Juju!!!
Two new dogs and the happiest of puppy greetings, sounds like a great birthday.
I was trying to figure out what gummy lobsters were and finally realized they are like gummy works and gummy bears. Then they sounded a lot better! :-)
@Juju: happy birthday!
Happy Birthday! Congratulations on the new puppers!
Very off topic:

Happy birthday – may you and the pups have the best life together!
@Juju: Happy birthday!!
Thanks. Someone mentioned, when I was waiting for my dogs, that I should link to my photo site, but I don’t have one. But they are cute dogs. Ruby Jean is a terrier blend and Lulu is an unwanted former breeder golden retriever. They are both beautiful and worth the year plus it took to get them.
@Juju: Happy Birthday. Wonderful doggies.
@Juju: :-) An excellent day!
Don’t worry about the AARP thing. A colleague in grad school got on their mailing list when he was about 25. ;-)
Thanks. And Happy Birthday!!
@WaterGirl: Yes, like gummy worms or bears. I hate to think of what you were picturing before you figured that out.

@Rob: It’s not possible to be off topic in a “totally open thread!” :-)
@Juju: It was gross!

@Juju: Happy Birthday! Hope this is your best year yet.
