Re: We Are Hobbits of the Shire

A Raptor's Grace (for Mr. President & The First Lady) We abide in the height of the tulip tree where our nest sits, lapped in bark, and there we mated, and there we waited for our eggs to make their mark. My snow-topped lord has brought me fish; a meal so fresh, it breathes. We toss and turn ea...

Re: My dear Joon...

I can't wait until we see the neurologist next month. The Honey is having trouble with his legs, and today, he was shuffling as he walked. Most days, he has this bouncy gait where he looks like the world's worst step-dancer, and after he took a walk, he complained of weakness in his one leg. Still, ...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

The hospital bed is a wonderful idea, though I can understand why your mom doesn't care for it. I've had half a dozen friends over the years where either they or their spouses had to do this; it changes how the home looks and feels to have a bed in the living room. But there's nothing like not havin...

Re: We Are Hobbits of the Shire

Praveen's Loss (on the death of Savita Halappanavar) Where has she gone? Be this daughter alone? Where be this blossom on the breast of day? Down from the lotus to the Ganges home. In Patrick's land, no snake ever roam. And the depth of the bogs and the clover hold sway. Where has she gone? Be this ...

Re: My dear Joon...

Oh God, where do I start? Saturday was International Star Wars Day (RIP Peter - you were the best, our one and only Chewbacca), and Sunday was Cinco de Mayo. I never drove so much to so little purpose in my life. Who knew that the restaurants that were open at 11 AM Monday thru Saturday, were closed...

Re: We Are Hobbits of the Shire

The Ballad of Freddie Oversteegen (1925 - 2018) At just fourteen, in the Second War, the Resistance came upon her door, and asked, 'Will you fight for the fatherland, O Freddie Oversteegen?' She downed the rails and the bridges fell, With Truus bold and Hannie Schaft, None ever saw such cunning cra...

Which brain would sell better at auction - Einstein's or Trump's?

Trump's. It's still in the box

Re: My dear Joon...

This is scary, and I don't want to upset you, joons...but, ah, this confirmation. My handwriting has gone small. All of a sudden. I compared it from four days ago when I was filling out envelopes for bills, to today, when I wrote out the checks. The script is most noticeably tiny, and difficult to g...

Re: We Are Hobbits of the Shire

For Andy I miss you, Chocolate Man. Teddy Bear, and Buddha-san. Your frame, so large and portly, Would rest, so calm and courtly, Upon the lowly, ancient green divan. My eyes a'weep, and my heart is rent O'er that big gone man the angels sent. You were here, and now you've left, And all is shocked, ...

Whatever helps her. Timmy is guarding her, of course. He's dividing his time betwee...

Re: My dear Joon...

I can't believe how fast the year is going - now. And so much for my year of not buying. Right now, I've got two Black Madonnas (replicates of famous European statues), four Gnostic Archangels, and five Mexican dresses. Back when I was a kid, I discovered Wicca, and met a couple of witches. One belo...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

I hope you had a nice Easter! Mom is resting at the moment, and so am I. My cold is getting better, but very slowly. It doesn't really help that our GP's are on holiday. As well as their substitutes... What's the point in being a substitute when they are taking their holidays at at the same time? I...
