The Cotillion - Our New Digs & a Housewarming

This week, the Cotillion officially moves to its new home!  New design, new home - what more could you ask for?  How about a housewarming party?!?

Well, even if you didn’t ask, I’m telling you that this week’s party is being hosted by four amazing conservative women:  Fistful of Fortnights, Who Tends the Fires, e-Claire and My VRWC.  Please be sure to stop by and thank them for such a great time!


Say A Prayer For Ron

I hate writing this, but a good guy is grieving. Ron G., who writes the hilariously funny blog The Therapist, lost his father today.

Please send him your best, no matter what side you’re on.


My Perfect Conservative Moment

True story….

I needed some stamps, so I went to the post office this morning. 

As, we were waiting in line, my daughter points to the collections they have on display.    Her first exclaimation was "Mommy, look at Mickey Mouse - there’s candles here!" (there was a display that had Mickey Mouse candles and some stamps with it). 

At the next display…  "Mommy, look at that guy on the stamps!"  I told her "that guy" was Ronald Reagan.  Right behind me was a couple, and the guy said to the girl something along the lines of "I don’t know why anyone would even waste the paper to put Ronald Reagan’s picture on it.  He was one of the worst presidents we’ve ever had."

Me, being the ever-polite person - and for fear of police action - chose not to turn around and deck him.  Instead, when it was my turn to buy stamps - and in a very loud voice - I asked the clerk "Do you have any of those Ronald Reagan stamps in stock?  I’d like to buy some!" 

I could feel the redness in his face across the room!
