Excuses, Excuses...

I know you're probably bored with hearing about this by now, Bush, but today is finally, actually the day--my birthday, the 70th in a series that I hope will last a little longer yet. I plan to take the day off. I deserve it. Besides, the news is so consistently awful that I can scarcely bring myself to read about it or watch it. So today, it's a leisurely walk around Balboa Island with George, the dog, a pleasant early evening cocktail at the Montage Hotel, and sunset dinner with Ellie at their excellent restaurant on the clifftop, The Studio. Maybe even an after-dinner brandy and cigar. I trust our readers will forgive a suspension of responses to their always welcome comments, and be patient with intermittent postings between now and next week: we're headed out on vacation starting Friday, and I'm planning to leave the computer at home. But I'll probably check in with you, Bush, at least a couple of times before we leave.

By the way, Bush, I completely forgot to mention this: we had our first review of "The Real Bush Diaries" last week. Check it out. It's a good one!

Happy Birthday!

Excellent blog by the way. I might not agree with you on all issues but I certainly agree with you that Bush is a huge failure.

A most Happy Birthday to you Peter:D!!! Enjoy your evening, and your time away... As a youngster my Father would rent a place for the summer on Balboa Island, oh, the fun we had:D! The last time there I remember going to see "Psycho", it had just come out, even today I remember that movie:). Think I would have enjoyed dinner and a sit down on the beach better.. It was a good review, sent it to my Brother, he lives in the Solana Beach area, hopefully he'll pick it up.
