I've got a headache

One day, long, long ago.......

there lived a woman who did not whine, nag or bitch.

But it was a long time ago.......

and it was just that one day.

Well, it's just about the dead middle of summer. Personally I like spring and fall and winter better than summer, but I do like summer anyway.

So many festivals! My friend Leah just called me and asked me if I want to go to the McClure Bean Soup Festival. That Leah.

Of course I said yes. It's not until September. I have time to buy some Beano©. Besides September is a very nice month here.

Notice that it's not just a soup festival. It's a BEAN soup festival. I'm amazed and intrigued.

Meanwhile I've been to Roots Farmers' Market (Here you say Ruts Market.) with somebody (whoever you are you are very important to me....) and to the Saturday Market with daughter Actonbell, and to the Green Dragon Market with walking buddy Irene. I'm having more fun than a human being should be allowed to have.

I'm eating all too well.

What the heck are YOU up to?

Carbon copy

Our today's forecast is "a near carbon copy" of yesterday.

Half of you aren't even old enough to have ever used carbon paper, so do you even know what a carbon copy is???? You whipper-snappers.

But I've sure used carbon paper and made many a carbon copy in my day.

You know, I don't think that I'm old enough to how the origin of "whipper-snapper." Maybe Old Hoss will know. *Bueller? Anybody?

Now I have to wonder if anyone who reads this is too young to remember Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Several are too old to know about it. Just sayin'.

Happy Birthday America

Happy Birthday to us all. As much as I complain, there's no place like home.
