VACATION





While we rarely comment on where we are or where we will be, we feel on safe ground (actually not ground as you will sea) saying this about the next week or so:

Much to our shock and horror, "she who must" has surprised us with a booking on the high seas. Tis true we are a bit of a yachtsman, in the bay or intercoastal, where we can dock along side the necessary fueling station when the alcohol content in our blood falls to dangerously low levels.


But to be crammed on some modern day barge with the hoi polloi from Iowa or such other hinterlands; to be forced to interact with crowds of the large, pale, and unwashed, seeking to eat every 5 minutes, is not our idea of holiday.

Fear not however, as we have employed the services of an enterprising young person, who will monitor the blog and post comments as quick as ever. Plus, we have a store of posts ready to go, and have been assured by those in power on the high seas that we will have internet access.

See You On the Lido deck.

I did not post a poorly wished bon voyage as the person mentioned in that post has asked me to stop the accusations and I have complied, but informed him all other posts about his career are fair game.

RUMPOLE!!!

You have hired somebody to administer the blog while you are on Vacation!

Wow- I bet this blog worries you more than your practice.

Rumpole said...

No. But much like McArthur's farewell speech at the Academy: "The corps, the corps, the corps...."

I too always have in mind "the readers...the readers...the readers."

Just a teen with a need for cash and a laptop.

My practice as it were, is being left in far less capable hands.

MIAMI-DADE

CANDIDATE'S SPOUSE SUES OPPONENT

The husband of a judicial candidate has filed suit to get his wife's opponent, County Judge Shirlyon McWhorter, disqualified and removed from the ballot.

The lawsuit, filed by Rodolfo Pedraza, husband of Patricia Marino-Pedraza, alleged that McWhorter violated campaign laws by filing to run for county judge -- and opening a campaign account to accept donations -- without declaring which seat she was running for.

The lawsuit also claimed that McWhorter violated the rules because her campaign treasurer, accountant Anthony Brunson, is not a Miami-Dade County voter and because her campaign accepted more than than the legal limit of $500 from three donors.

McWhorter, appointed to the bench by Gov. Jeb Bush three years ago, declined to comment because she said the case is under investigation.

Her co-campaign manager, Reginald Clyne, said that the excess donations had already been returned. He called the issue of which seat she was running for ``cockamamie.''

''She's always been running to retain her seat,'' he said.

Mike Catalano, attorney for Pedraza and a close friend of Pedraza-Marino, said the case is set for a hearing on Monday.

"with the hoi polloi from Iowa" is incorrect. It's simply "with hoi polloi from Iowa"

This is the real Mike Catalano.
I did NOT send the note about being with Patti at Starbucks.

I do not drink coffee.

That is a fake.

It looks as if it is cut and paste of the Miami Herald article.

Out.

When I went to New Orleans last year as a coast guard auxiliary pilot and did volunteer work, I did not ever think it would be in a joke.

Sorry, that is not funny.

Who ever sent that should see just how bad it was in that area.

Kid around but, be human, please.

rump,

perhaps the yachting is a diversion. a true boater would its the intracoastal, not the intercoastal.

safe sailing...

Rumpole said...

valid point- but we do know our port from our starboard, aft from bow, winward from leeward, abaft from hmm.. you get the point. However we conceed we spelled the name of the waterway incorrect.

Anonymous said...

rumpole, you seem to be off your game... spelling concede as conceed and using the word incorrect instead of incorrectly.

have you shoved off yet, matey?

the truth said...

Perhaps an indication that Rumpole is a team effort-the Rumpole I know lives for the grammar.

nah..somtimes I'm rushed and tired.
