|What I think of Tony Abbott|
The birds are eating us out of house and home. I have had to restrict them to 2 pounds of seed a day – which they finish within an hour. These cannot be all local birds – some of them are fly ins from far flung places – maybe even Kentucky or Ohio.
The squirrels love their corn and are getting through an ear a day. This does not stop them from molesting the bird seed. The corn is cheaper than the bird seed. I may just focus on the squirrels.
Tonite I received our federal tax return which was prepared by the accountants. It runs to 68 pages. I am supposed to check it and then mail it to the IRS. It is totally incomprehensible. Mail it? What happened to electronic filing?
Perhaps the IRS is supporting the US postal service because it is running at such a colossal deficit.
The good news is that Uncle Sam owes us money.
We received our tickets to the Indy 500. They appear to be very good seats. We are in the B Penthouse. Apparently this means that we are under cover.
The people who got the seats told us that we are in the sun until about 12:30 and then it sinks slowly into the west. Cate said that’s OK – the race starts at 12:00 so we will be out of there by 1:00.
Not exactly I said – the race – at best – will last at least 3 hours – it is after all 500 miles. With guaranteed yellow flags we are looking at 4:00 PM.
This brought her to the brink of a nervous collapse and once more it was necessary to resuscitate her with Pouilly-Fuisse.
There is a website Stop Tony Meow. You download it to your browser and it replaces pictures of Tony Abbott with pictures of kittens.
This will be useful for all those who have been royally rogered by Tony’s recent budget – you know the one that was never ever under any circumstances going to contain tax increases – but is stuffed to the gunwales with them.
Don’t blame me. I voted Labor.
