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, ...

:lol: :lol: That's exactly it! :D As for you going after cows with butterfly nets: I tried to stay off meat myself and ended up with dreams of being chased by ham sandwiches... :lmao: Mom's resting a lot these days. 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...

Re: My dear Joon...

In the spring, the Turkey Vultures fly to Hinkley, the swallows to Capistrano, my husband to the hospital... It wasn't probably more than an hour after I posted the previous post, that he lost his lunch. Literally. On his computer screen, my bedroom floor and finally, the hall bathroom. I called my ...

Saint Theresa (On a Frenchman at Carmel de Lisieux) for my friend Jean, who loves her "Pardon, Monsieur, did I hear you call? Oui! You on your knees at my tomb! T'is I, Teres, from here in Lisieux, And t'was Jesu, who made me bloom! I was never petite, never of those Which men make much of too...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

He's home, thanks Allegra. His sodium levels had dropped and he couldn't keep anything down. Our neighbors rushed out to buy an anti-emetic, bananas, ginger ale, rice, crackers and applesauce but in the end, I grabbed a tuperware and off we went to the ER. We got there just after 8 PM, and by 1 AM, ...
