Sis likes to go to those spray tan booths and get a nice orange tint (versus the green tint on the model pictured).

Thanks for the insight, Blog Guy. Now we know how they do it, with pliers and heavy gauge wire.

Or is it a theme week? First Martinets, now Marionettes?
What next? Maisonette? Minionette?

Their tactics may have differed but I do know when Ma L handed that Harvard clerk the jar of borscht she winked and said there was more where that came from. Then she flashed her unforgettable smile (which sometimes worked against her…)

Took a lot of trial and error to craft the perfect
Ah-nuld.

I could have pulled some strings. I have lots of connections at Harvard. And I’m sure Lamar would receive an educational benefit at Harvard.

I won’t have you dissing my future mother-in-law. My Lamar’s mom is a fine (albeit short) figure of a woman who did right by her boy. She worked a long day at the sheet metal plant and then a nightshift as a seamstress, always denying herself the little luxuries, like dental work. All this to get Lamar into Harvard. It turned out that his brilliant mind and diverse talents were beyond the recognition of the admissions clerk, despite a personal visit from Ma with a jar of borscht and her son in tow. But she tried and I demand recognition for her.

She had dirt and debris on her back and looked remarkably like Mrs. Doc. I walked down the flagstone path to drink coffee by the ponds, and there she was, stretching between the white pine and the red-twig dogwood. I could get to like dirty-back nymphs. I need to make a new batch of coffee.
