I took some pictures of our Topsy Turvy tomato plant last night. It looks like there is going to be an abundance of cherry tomatoes, but I want to know when they’re going to turn red! I’m impatient!
The Tax Time Pig has had a stuffed Saint Bernard sitting on its back all week. Rather than take a picture I thought I’d just let you envision that. There wasn’t a sign so I’m not sure what exactly this portends.
I appreciated all the positive responses to my poem about the Ohio Cornfield Prostitute. I have really pondered the meaning of the sign and I’ve decided that the most likely scenario is some sort of feud between two people of the female persuasion & one of them posted this not-so-subtle hint about the character of the other one. Anyone else have any other ideas?
Although I’m not a prostitute, I did have some ice cream on Sunday. I had Cow Patty flavor. Dr. M had boring old chocolate (he will tell you that it was excellent - & on sale!).
You may notice that I tend to link to old posts a lot. This is not primarily to get you to go read old posts (although it’s a nice side benefit). I’m just too lazy to say everything again.
On my way to work this morning I was composing a soliloquy about how much I enjoy my commute on pretty days, but then I hit the interstate portion of the journey & started cussing. Took the charm right out of the journey. It’s because I’m listening to music instead of audio books. Music does not soothe this savage beast!
My music playlist is rather eclectic. I’ve got Sheryl Crow, Indigo Girls, Jonatha Brooke, Ingrid Michaelson, John Gorka, Eric Clapton, Michelle Shocked, Annie Parsons, Dixie Chicks, Allison Krauss, Bruce Hornsby, Tom Petty, Eliza Gilkyson, Lucy Kaplansky, Richard Shindell, Marc Kohn, Girlyman, The Wailin’ Jennys, Suzy Boggus, Bonnie Raitt, some others I can’t remember, and… Sarah Vaughn. Now I really love Sarah Vaughn. But. Mixed in with these other artists? With all those orchestral arrangements? It’s just anachronistic. She makes me think of Carol Burnett singing some parody or other. In future I’ll save Sarah for my Rosemary Clooney/Patricia Barber mix.
Tomorrow Dr. M & I are heading up to Lake Erie. We’re staying in the town of Marblehead. Marblehead has charm, fishermen, & mayflies (I’m actually hoping the mayflies are gone by the time we get up there). We mostly like to just sit & watch the water & take pictures of the ducks. I’m sure you’ll hear all about it later!
I may or may not post while we’re gone – if not, I’ll see you guys on Tuesday!
