Meet Joe.   

I put him right by my sink for a bit o'humor.  

I'm a bit like Joe this week.  

We just got home from a weekend at Six Flags.  I feel like I've been given a lobotomy.  But, the kids had fun and that's all that matters.

It's also like Day 785 with 100+ temperatures and NO RAIN.  

I actually did have a little cry yesterday because I feel so sorry for the Earth.  

The poor insects and animals and trees and plants.  

 And then I listened to some archives of This American Life and I somehow got one where they interviewed this kid who simply did not believe in global warming. She claimed it was just, you know, "... he said she said nonsense. ..."


Anyway, whatever.

God bless the man/woman who invented air conditioning, right?  

I'll try to rally today and give you some goods tomorrow.  

But, don't hold me to it 'cuz you just  never know.  

You might end up with a big photo of all my piles and piles of laundry that needs folding.  

(Hmmm, I wonder if someone would be interested in bartering yard eggs for clothes folding?  Probably not.)


  1. Our Earth is in bad shape.
    I try to keep water for the insects and birds. I have given up on the plants.
    I am glad yall had a good time on your little holiday. I have fond memories of you,I, Roo and friends going to Astroworld 100 years ago.
    Come on rain!!!!!

  2. what the heck are yard eggs?
    maybe you could do a rain dance while folding laundry?

  3. Carey,

    Eggs from the chikkins in our yard = yard eggs. That's a really good idea on the rain dance.

  4. It's too hot to dance outside. Will inside do just as well?

  5. I think I've got it!! I believe we all need to rain dance nekkid while juggling yard eggs, simultaneously folding laundry, while the Gov' na prays.... Indeed. That should do it. Surely the skies would open with tears of laughter ;) Or if not... It'd certainly make one hell of a news story.

    P.S. Salt water is good for the soul! Tears, sweat and the Caribbean. The Doctor (ahem, that'd be me ;) demands you take a vacation from laundry and stuff. Immediately. I suggest a beach vacation. I hear it rains there ;)

  6. P.P.S. I'm off to Costa Rica next week. I believe I have room in my luggage if you'd care to tag along!

  7. Gator - HAHAHAHA OMG. I am SO seriously in your bag. I AM an old bag so they shouldn't even notice me. Please, Please take me...sniff.
