Looks like Dicky Neely Has Left the Room

I noticed Julie Johnson - an elusive one : ) - had left a comment on Dicky Neely's last post, so I went to see what she had to say....

Then afterward, found this:

I didn't…


Dear Foolish Monkey

I so enjoy/ed having you post here - saw a painting of you as George Washington, yesterday? but was on the way to the oral surgeon with a husband in tooth agony and didn't have time to comment. I loved it!

I wish you knew how much I appreciate you and your input and posts and paintings here and how disappointing it is to sign on this morning and you are no longer here.…

The Sensible Families Let the Twelve Year-olds Drive Home

Posted on July 3, 2018 at 11:00pm 6 Comments

‘Fireworks illegal here, too,’ she said, chatting fondly about the old school Fourth of July days with a friend they couldn’t know would die within the week,

This Evening's Sunset Drive

  People sometimes say there's not a whole lot to do around here, and sometimes I'd say that's true.....

  But the sunset drives sure are beautiful.

 Son's old 1988 stick-shift red e30 BMW is pretty fun, too.…


Supposedly Jane Goodall

“When the aging gorilla is confronted with the much more virile, new alpha-male, he shows submissiveness by grooming the alpha-male, but the gesture is actually a vain attempt by the old gorilla to humiliate his much younger rival.”…


My Ancient High on Acid Adventure ~ SBA/RR Challenge: Music

Posted on April 14, 2018 at 11:30pm 25 Comments

The bar had gotten crowded and close, was getting downright pungent, when the lights dimmed, the headliner band announced.
