Happy National Dog Day

Here are Buddy and Tosha, who figure if it is Dog Day, food must be involved somehow.


The latest meme

Snagged from so many....

1. Are you named after someone?

Named for the title character from the song I'll Take You Home Again, Kathleen. I guess my granddad used to sing it. My middle name is the female version of my dad's first name.

The rest of it....Collapse )



Congrats to Danneel and Jensen on more kids on the way. I hope all goes well. Now Justice can be joined by Truth and The American Way. 8-) Seriously though, I wish them all the best, especially good health.

Notes from a road trip

Today, I traveled 600 miles in a pick-up with my husband, kid, and our two dogs. It took about 12 hours to make our way from the Twin Cities in Minnesota to the woods in Michigan just south of the Mackinac Bridge. It was a beautiful day to drive - clear blue sky and not too hot. We traveled along the northern edge of Lake Michigan and the water was fairly placid today. The late afternoon sun is starting to get that August glow to it and the wildflowers have changed from the daisies of early July to Queen Anne's Lace.

There were a couple of places I wish I'd had a camera. Eastern Wisconsin has a lot of farms where they must be on a second cutting of hay. The corn is also getting pretty tall. We drove past cows, a herd of donkeys and then a large field full of sheep. All over, there are barns with quilt block patterns painted on the end. I want to do that here at our Michigan place. I just have to pick a pattern and colors. Probably not the drunkard's path or storm at sea but I'm sure I can find something good. Of all the lovely things we saw today, my favorite was driving by two large fields of sunflowers. So much yellow and so cheerful. That's when I wanted a camera.

This is also election season and there are signs everywhere for this and that. Someone running in Michigan for US Congress, I think, has the name Lon Johnson. Some graffiti artist added a well placed G, turning the sign into an advertisement of a different sort.

The other thing that I saw worth noting made my think of my flist. (Spellcheck told me there are no replacements to be found for flist. So true.) Anyhow, we drove by a diner with a sign out front announcing Taco Tuesdays. I wished so hard for there to be someone who would appreciate the true value of the question, 'do these tacos taste funny to you?'

Goodnight, all.

Peace rest on you, wherever you've gone.

SPN Season 12 - Yeah, Baby...

So, this show that I watch got renewed for a 12th season. Congrats to Jared and Jensen on carrying the show forward for this many years. That is a considerable amount of blood, sweat, and tears. Hopefully not much of the first. Jared's on the show so sweat's not a problem. So not a problem. As for tears, this is SPN. Everybody cries. Often.

While 12 seasons is very cool and all that, what is also great is that on April 24, 2017, the Impala will be 50 years old. Who would have thought this muscled bit of steel and chrome modestly masquerading as a family car would still be speeding down the back roads of the US hauling those brothers and their baggage, duffle bags of laundry and self-esteem issues. Roll on forever, Baby.

That song line poetry thing

Snagged from amberdreams

Put your music player on shuffle, and write down the first line of the first twenty songs.
Post the poem that results.
The first line of the twenty-first song is the title.

A poem for alternating voices.

My Sisters and I

Listen I know it's been hard
It really breaks my heart
Someone's always coming around here, trailing some new kill

       What is this land America so many travel there
       And after the storm
       Tá na caoirigh ag ithe an gheamhair

There's something in the way she moves
Love I get so lost, sometimes
Amazing grace how sweet the sound

       Ah, for just one time I would take the Northwest Passage
       I'm a town in Carolina, I'm a detour on a ride
       Mama said there'll be days like this

If you see me walking down the street
If I could have all the world and all it owns
Guess I got what I deserve

       There is a young cowboy, he lives on the range
       The red sandstone, it fell
       Ubi caritas et amor, deus ibi est

Spare me your judgments and spare me your dreams

      Don't know why there's no sun up in the sky

Bonus points if you can pick out the songs. Some of them are pretty well known.
