Posted on: April 14, 2014

Our Madamab is feeling puny with  some type of respiratory crud like many of us have had recently so I found this hysterical play that she did back in 2009.  Some things just remain the same.  Enjoy!

Enjoyed the play, Fredster, thanks for posting. I remember that event & we talked about it @ Uppitys. I scrolled through the comments and saw a lot of names I remembered from years past.

I’m floating!

I keep trying to envision how the US would react to a Russian warship off the coast of, say, Florida. They’d be all calm and rational about it. Right?

(What an unholy mess this whole situation is.)

Quioxte@7: I don’t know about now, but previously, subs from the USSR used to park themselves off our coasts.

I agree completely with this:
