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

‘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,

‘which makes me nostalgic for those southern Fourth of Julys back in the day, in that humid Georgia heat…

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

The bar had gotten crowded and close, was getting downright pungent, when the lights dimmed, the headliner band announced. The LSD our group had taken on the walk over to the club was just kicking in - for me, a highly unusual state of events. When acid was offered earlier that evening I’d thought back to the only other time I’d tried it, a little bit shared a with a co-worker years before; the only…

When Youngest Was Homeschooled

Since there was recent talk of homeschooling in the comment thread of Rodney's recent post, I thought I'd re-post the experience our family had when Youngest was homeschooled. Not sure we had a common experience, not sure there is a common experience with homeschooling, it's so individual, but it's the…

Book Clubs and Book Lists

There’s a couple of book clubs I know of presenting books to read for January. One of the book clubs is hosted by our local independent bookseller, the other has spread widely online by a tweet from Duncan Jones, David Bowie’s son.

The Duncan Jones book offering is an older book, from the mid-80s, and sounds rather intense (which got my curiosity going). The book is…
