Loosely Speaking

Sunday, July 6, 2008


I was thinking about this, and then Shelly blogged about it... One, long,long ago, when I was in college--that's how long!--I was really sick with the flu, and lived alone then, so was in bed for about 3 or 4 days without company. In those few days I had the radio on a lot, and suddenly (and just... Sign in to see full entry.

It's Canada Day!

There is an illusion that Canada is somehow like the little sister--or maybe more like the dowdy older sister of brash, vivacious, agressive USA! Like the sisters in Sense and Sensibility (Jane Austen) Maybe it is not that far from the mark, considering how much the older sister actually has on the... Sign in to see full entry.

Paleolithic Tregizmo

A friend of mine recently posted a poem on the theme of a stone age hunt, that made reference to the exigencies of winter. I was stirred by his imagery to carry on the story... Wind rises, the sun is pale; Leaves go brilliant and finally pall; Wise creatures burrow deep seeking the peace and safety... Sign in to see full entry.

Smartasses everywhere!

A friend sent me this a few moments ago... After every flight, UPS pilots fill out a form, called a "gripe sheet," which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft. The mechanics correct the problems, document their repairs on the form, and then pilots review the gripe sheets before the next... Sign in to see full entry.

Housekeeping by accident

All I wanted was to get some frames out of the way. I've been saling on the weekends... garage saling! It's a great source for really nice frames for photos. Many aren't suitable, but there are a few very nice ones for a couple of dollars or less... Also, frame shops and stores with frame...

Do you know mushrooms?

I never ever eat a mushroom I am not 100% sure of... and these, that have been popping up in my yard, I am not sure of. I am hoping someone in Blogitland can give me some clues to name these. I posted photos of a mystery mushroom which I thought might be amanita over in Davy's blog,... Sign in to see full entry.

Can this blogger be saved?

My dad told me years ago that when I was a baby, I always woke up crying. A few times, dreaming a joke, I have awakened chortling. I woke up this morning, and my fingers were typing on air... Like a baby babbling, like a chimp muttering ASL signs, my fingers were going through the motions...... Sign in to see full entry.

Revise and reprise...

An exchange with another Blogiteer-- lestate7 --got me rethinking one of my own poems that I first posted here May 26. Here is the revision--If anyone is inclined, I would like to hear which one you like better. The Crow How do I know me? Can I count the ways... No, really-- Can I? Ups and downs and...

Movie night

One of the best movies of all time.... I am sitting here watching Benny & Joon. Great cast, lovely character studies, a really entertaining, moving movie... If you have never seen it, you can rent it... If you have, you can always see it again! Has Johnny Depp made any bad movies? I didn't much care... Sign in to see full entry.

So, Naut, did you have tasty fresh lobster on your holiday?

LOBSTERS ON PARADE Across the abyssal plain, in waters weighted with the entire ocean and as utterly black as night can be, lit only by the thrashing sparking flaring of creatures bizarre by any notion of ourselves, the lubberly kind... Across these heavy deeps in measured tread of little feet... Sign in to see full entry.
