Happy New Year to all my P.E. friends and fellow bloggers!

Look who's coming for a visit (grandson Max on leave will fly up from Norfolk, Virginia, and spend the New Year's celebration here in the North End!)  

Best present ever!:

I'll be busy with other family who will come to say hello to him. Today I'm making a huge pot of sauce with meatballs, sausages, pork ribs, and lamb. Also eggplant parmigiano, and lots of other of Max's favorite Italian food and goodies.

Ahhhhhh, what time did you say dinner was? I’m just asking for a “friend”.

Dave Miller said...

Feliz Año Nuevo Shaw!

Ask that navy guy if he's getting the 10% raise Pres Trump told the SEALS he negotiated for them when he visited Iraq yesterday.

Enjoy the family time, the good food and a chance to reconnect.

Happy cooking too...

Ha! Jerry! You're welcome here any time!

Dave: Fact check: Trump brags to troops about 10 percent pay raise he didn't actually give them. The president also got it very wrong when he claimed during his trip to Iraq that service members haven't had a wage hike in 10 years.

President Donald Trump told American troops in Iraq that he had given them a 10 percent raise, and that it was their first pay hike in a decade — but he didn't, and it wasn't.

"You just got one of the biggest pay raises you've ever received," Trump said in remarks at al-Asad Airbase during his surprise trip to Iraq on Wednesday, drawing cheers from the troops. "You haven’t gotten one in more than 10 years — more than 10 years. And we got you a big one. I got you a big one."

Troops will receive a 2.6 percent — not 10 percent — pay hike for 2019; they got a 2.4 percent pay hike in 2018.

What's more, American troops have received a pay hike every year for decades. 2019's raise is the largest in nine years.

Facts don't mean anything to Trump or his cultists. It's like truth is whatever the voices in his head tell him it is. And most of the time it's a lie. He's a despicable human being.

I hope Mr. Mueller helps us get rid of him very soon.

tRump traveled half-ways around the world to lie to the troops and hold a political rally.

That food looks great. Enjoy your family. Happy New Year!

Your Cooking Looks Like Shit, Is that the best that you can do for someone in the Military?

Jono said...

Shaw Kenawe said...

Ray, thank you. Happy New Year to you! And your family.

Thank you Jono. Happy New Year to you and your family.

Oswald P. Pentagas, clearly my cooking does not look "Like Shit."

The reason it looks like that to YOU, is because you're a TrumpCultist escapee from WYD and because you support a shitty human being, EVERYTHING looks like shit to you. It's a shitty way to live, Oswald. SAD!

Oswald is a WYD troll sock puppet. It looks like Lisa has a major girl crush on nude model first "lady" Melania. Hahaha

Waffle Pajamas said...

Awwww. Lisa haz a sad cuz Michelle is on all kindsa fashion mags and the botoxed implanted Melania isn't. Maybe people like Michelle cuz sheez not a phony bleached porn model and dint sleep with another woman's husband like Melania did. Sometimz people admire women for theys moral character and not theys lookz. Lisa and her stoopids don't unnerstan thet.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Anonymous @8:00AM, That crowd has strange crushes on the type of people they'd be trashing if people like Melania and Trump were Democrats.

Waffle P. Lisa is in love with Melania. Apparently she and her friends like phony stuff. They did, afterall, vote for President Bone Spurs.
