Boy, this time I think I've really gone over the edge! Yes, I am late posting this week's Bushisms but the reason - believe it or not -I got done in by the three-day weekend. Yep, was just sitting here tonight thinking about posting this week's Bushisms and I was thinking too that I was doing pretty good to be posting them tonight since they weren't late because, after all, it's only Sunday night ya know!
And that's when it dawned on me that no, this is NOT Sunday night. That was LAST night. Tonight, I finally realized, is actually Monday night! I kid you not. My mind was twisting around and thinking tonight was Sunday night. Talk about getting lost in space, huh? My own space, for sure there. So, anyway, here's this week's Bushisms and I shouldn't have to worry about screwing up my dates with a long, three-day weekend again now until September and Labor Day!

Phew! After reading those Bushisms for this week, it's no wonder I'm confused and got my days mixed up is it. I've been reading so many Bushisms it's causing my sense of reality to get all discombobulated too I think!
