Air: There's a lot of it in DC these days!!! But to clear the air, Happy Holidays to you and your family my friend :)

Air--should be cleaned, recycled and redistributed in DC. Me angry and no amount of hot air is going to change that

I can't compete with the word verifier. It reads: candair. Canned Air -- any recorded political speech.

Air: Used to dry one's dirty laundery.

affordable only for the present

Air is the resource most taken for granted. The only place now that it isn't free is from those tire pumper upper machines.
Air: we heat it, we cool it, we treat it, we flavor (scent) it, and we purify it. No charge, only a cost of business that is passed along.

There's no such thing as an air fern, by the way.

LOL Quilly!

Air keeps the airplanes up, too.

And farting would make no sense without air, either.

Doug said...

And to you and yours, Thom. May you will be elected to congress.

Pia, happy Hannukah, anyway.

Speeches and sermons generally, I think, Quilly.

You win, TLP.

True, Coop. In 20 years it will cost 1.5% of our incomes or so.

True, Jim. Funny, if you think about it, that we perfume and purify it.

Well, Bear, it isn't hard to find. Peace.

Actonbell, I had no idea! But theirs air orchids, right?

Merry Christmas, Sauerkraut.

Ariel, those are two important technical points.

Thom said...

Highly doubtful my friend. I speak my mind too much and don't take bribes...and my comment was suppose to include hot yesterday...go figure LOL

This is Tuesday's post, Thom. Yesterday would then be Monday ~ Abridge (contesting vapidity with vacuity).
