Your daily Mendota.

It's a 4-day streak now. Different every day. Not that different. But I'm keeping an eye on it for you.

MEANWHILE: Meade was mountain biking and texted me this:

I know: men in shorts.

Maybe if they wore yoga pants it would be better.

Rene Saunce said...

Looks refreshing.

Ever go swiming at willows beach? We went skinny dipping there when I was a kid.

Thank you, Ann. It's nice to know that if the Russkis start messing with Mendota Ann and Meade will be on the job to thwart them.

I hope you enjoy your morning Covfefe at Mendota.

Friendo said...

Love the lake picture; love the frog picture.

He wants you to kiss it.

Oone kauha wiki wiki, sweet brown maiden said to me
As she gave me language lessons on the beach at Waunakee
Oone kauha wiki wiki, she then said and smiled with glee
But she would not translate for me on the beach at Waunakee
Oone kauha wiki wiki, she repeated playfully
Oh, those lips were so inviting on the beach at Waunakee

The frog has to be a prince first, or it doesn't work.

Awww... so cute!

Though he does look better now that you've kissed him.

Do they ever sail on that lake?

"Do they ever sail on that lake?"

Sure. I had sailboat pictures from today too, but I chose the fishing picture.

Brings back happy memories of taking the dog for a swim at James Madison park on the near east side many years ago.

Around Madison in the 60's and 70's, a favorite childish put down was say "You belong in Mendota!" The reference was to the famous Mendota Mental Health Institute. Waupan was where bad people went; Mendota was where the crazies went. We talked about Mendota whenever the Napoleon XIV song came on WISM, whenever we talked in whispers about Ed Gein, or whenever we watched Jonathan Winters.

More news about fake news.

Sarah Palin is suing the NYT for saying she incited the Gifford shooting. It sounds like a legitimate case since the NYT itself debunked the myth years ago.

I wonder if the Union Hoofers still exist. They had a fine collection of sailing craft for hire.

You're right. The ripple pattern has changed.

Do we know who pushed/pulled the editorial though at the NYT? Perhaps discovery will shed some light on the editorial cowardice at the Times.

I recall that when Althouse first put up the Gifford shooting story years ago (shortly after it broke), it took a resident lefty only a few minutes to make the same accusation. So the meme was already in place. In those days it was Palin Derangement Syndrome.

Spent 9-3 at a state park with the kids, then a (road) bike ride and dinner with friends, and finally a conversation with my favorite conversationalist, my husband. Fantastic day.

If that's too happy for some, they can take joy in the fact that tomorrow will almost certainly be worse.

It is always great to see summer pics of Mendota (or Monona) in or near Madison. Very pretty.
