In Case of Forgetfulness

Remember the Pueblo

Magical Misery Tour

Recent Life Update

My news junky brain has ODed on Wall Street and Sarah Palin. Feh! I'll tune in later in the week. (Tomorrow.) Sometimes, too much is too much. (Unlike opera where too much is generally just enough.)

I've tuned the radio away from NPR to guitar driven rock and roll, aka Little Steven's Underground Garage on Sirius. Loud. It is cathartic. Please, rock these blues away.

Spinning has happened! Don't think I have spun at home since last winter. I barely spin at the Friendship Spinners' meetings.

Okay, so if someone has already come up with this name for this blend, then I will be damned.

May I present Bunny and the Beast!


On the bobbin.

In the skein.

The beast is sheep, shetland in this case, although I was gifted with a bag o' white alpaca last month (thank you, Nurse Kelly!) and so it will also be beast in the future.

Found this catterpiggle on the front porch today. Wow.

Spot, the Magnificent!

Per the Deteriorata, I have the actual vinyl! National Lampoon Radio Dinner 1972. "Portions of this Record May Not Be Suitable for Air Play." I never listened to Dr. Demento, but I ate up the Lampoon.

Brother and Zippiknits, some things do change. Good or Bad? I think bad. There is a parody of Joan Baez singing what is euphemistically titled "Pull the Tregros." It is a comment on the white liberals folk music supporting the minorities. If I may, the lyrics start like this - Pull the triggers, N*ggers, We're with you all the way. (From across the bay.) Could this sort of parody pass muster today?

Nibbler, please join my world of the non-sequetors. Ten-four, Eleanor.

And although I totally love John Lennon, there is an hilarious spoof of him bashing Paul, George and Ringo for their bashing of Yoko. "Yoko is a Concept by which We Measure Our Pain." Gotta laugh. It was 1972, after all.

If pot is harmless, why do so many teeny boppers think Cheech and Chong are funny? And Nixon. Nixon running for President against a 1973 Pontiac.

Compact and Ideal for Travel


The storm on Sunday, the so-called leftovers from Hurricane Ike, was awe inspiring. We experienced 35 to 70 mph winds for about 5 hours steady. Can you imagine that much energy, that far inland, for that long?

We sat on the porch and watched it all in HD, silly mid-westerners that we are.

The power was off from noon until 3 am. Our little shed lost a bit of roof and the barn was stripped of a bit of metal siding. Our house is fine. The bunnies are fine. We were worried about our neighbor's house.

And rightly so. Everyone had gathered there to watch the Colt's game. Nobody was hurt.

No ladder needed to get the apples from the top of the tree.
