The day of crazy ideas . . .

I just had it pop into my head that I should spend this year becoming “smashing”  . . . in appearance, guys. Although I have to say I can’t blame you for thinking I was turning my violence level up, given my lousy moods of late. I think I should lose weight, dress well  . […]

Der Bingle is at it again

July 31st, 2008 · No Comments

Yes, there he is in Georgia, finding all sorts of cool links – like this one: Oh, please, please, let it be true . . . and not staged. And if that honking jerk did anything to the lady, I hope those skateboarders laid into him.

How lucky can I get? Here I have an electronic site that is named after the cow leaning in the field down the road . . . and I find a homespun group that sums up the writing here: EMOOS. This is so great.

The sale I remember the most

July 31st, 2008 · 1 Comment

Ringer

July 30th, 2008 · No Comments

I have embraced who I am  – I had to get a ringer for my new phone . . . oh, I forgot to mention the Katana quit, didn’t I . . . . and after looking for something that was so me, I sighed and chose Back Home Again in Indiana.* Okay, quit laughing […]

The tempting walk

July 30th, 2008 · 2 Comments

The Cagney bear

July 29th, 2008 · 1 Comment

I have mentioned that in the past, Quentin and I sat down and named – and labelled on their butts – bears in my collection from GoodWill. There were, dontcha know, the bears that looked so cute and so needing of a home they just had to be real. Actually, they had all sorts of […]

How about that . . .

July 28th, 2008 · No Comments

I see that I did not come back to comment about the birthday, and for that matter, I did not come back at all. I thought I had been here yesterday, though, but I guess not. I have just come from Thomas Bickle’s blog, written by his mother. I find when I go to his […]

We are having a party here at the Peanut Butter Cafe & Roadhouse to celebrate Der Bingle’s friend’s birthday today. We won’t type the number . . . because someone here is going to be that age in one month and one day. (But for right now, she is not . . . sorry, just […]
