Felt like summer yesterday with highs in the 70sF and more of the same today...this may be the latest in the year that I've ever worn the shorts

Have a great Tuesday, gang!

Sober - it's just as foggy today here as it was yesterday Made me a little paranoid re the lights on my car - I don't think the engine management system is working properly re the lights and I can only manually override the lights so much...eek - maybe some expensive work will need to get done in due course ...

Dee - I hope you recover quickly and well from your accident

Everyone - hello from foggy Scotland!

Haha, I second that emotion.

Hi Over's,

Turning 29 months clean and sober today. Albeit a rather innocuous milestone...I like the fact that I remembered. Some months on the 3rd I don't remember.

I also like the fact that I realize that I am still sick and recovering and that process is not finite.

Have a good one.

Carlos

Yep, that's Clint Howard (Ron Howard's younger brother). He was kinda cute on Gentle Ben, but later made a whole career of playing creepy-looking guys!

We were having a discussion about parallel universes at work today and somebody brought up The Berenstain Bears series of books. Seems there's a lot of discussion about this out there:

How you spell ?The Berenstain Bears? could be proof of parallel universes Great Job, Internet! The A.V. Club

For the record, I always remember them as Berenstain

Congrats on 29 Carlos!

Mags,
You aren't selfish. Just possessed of good sense.

I lost a very long post to all and you in particular about what you did not miss raising kids. It sent me off on a jaunt perusing lyrics to songs that influenced me. Cat Stevens' "Father and Son" Which as a young teen struck a chord since mine abandoned us when I was six and never made contact or support of any kind again. Then another favorite from Harry Chapin, struck down by a head on collision, Harry Chapin's "Cat's In The Cradle" seems to be true today with my kids but in a great way as mine are not clingy and neither are we.

I hope you get to keep your job too!

FBL,
I am with Zip, he is creepy. Thanks for giving up the name so I could look him up. We are yo yo'ing from mid to upper 70s and on Saturday mid 60s then up again?? Glad you are having it mild.

And thanks for getting me to contemplate time and spatial paradox and the inability to take the edge of Occam's razor to it!

FG,
If your warning lights are going off it is always cheaper to take it in before it dies even if only from avoiding a house call and tow in cheaper. Hope the fog lifts for you!

Morning Wolf!

Sassy ever listen to "Mornin" by Al Jarreau? Here is the video from the early 80's and despite the funky clothes it still is a great song!

Hi Drake!

I lost a very long post so this will be significantly shorter. I was doing Harry Chapin then veered off into his Wiki profile because I had forgotten how young he was when he had a head on collision, likely due to myocardial infarction.

His songs were seminal to me, and were popular as I finished off my teen years. I'd forgotten how incisive, and powerful his lyrics were. I have a new house, and lots yet to do. But am short a dream now. I have done 200% of my bucket lists and dreams as a kid and young adult and parent. I have all I need and then some, and have already had it all, and then some and have nothing I really want for, or I'd have it already or be close.

That made me, again, realize that many children are not able to survive the hunger and poverty of war, or even escape it. He wrote what one close friend and critic called the second most depressing song ever written, so if you don’t know what “The Shortest Story” is about, be forewarned if you look it up, it is a terrible tear jerker.

When I was lonely I'd listen to his "A BetterPlaceToBe."


Then I remembered how deeply he’d touched my life. And that he’s lived up to the challenge I now take up again.

His epitaph is taken from his song "I Wonder What Would Happen to this World." It is:
Oh if a man tried
To take his time on Earth
And prove before he died
What one man's life could be worth
I wonder what would happen
to this world
I know his lyrics among many others changed my world. I wonder what would happen, if I tried to prove it again too?

We are blessed. We have been blessed. Because we were born into free societies, we lived.

Just to live past our first birthday is a miracle others in our world today can’t share.

I guess I’m going to have to try.

Aww poor muppet, did you boo-boo your arm too Dee?? Sending healing thoughts your way. X

Itchy don't waste fog lifting thoughts on Scotland, it would take your entire back catalogue of thoughts to lift this current miasma. Been lingering for 3 days so far.
I went into work by mistake on Monday ( I Know right?!) am working Friday which I normally don't so was meant to have Monday off. Anyhoo coz I went in I worked 3.5 hours and will get Saturday off instead.

Poor Clint, Ron got the cute looks in that family. Though he seems to have made plenty of lemonade.

Congrats on 29 Carlos. How's the packing going?

Must dash, early start today

Happy Hump Day all

It was a bit more than a boo boo Toots - but I wouldn't expect you to know that or to go out of your established threads to read up on me and my silly misadventures.

I chose the avatar to lighten things up a little, and it looks like it did that

Moving around better this week anyway so all's well.

Carlos, congrats on 29! I meant to do that yesterday but this old lady's memory is not what it used to be :-(

Dee, so happy you are on the mend! I do love that avatar.

Have a lovely day, Overs!

Carlos, congrats on 29 months!

Dee, glad you're on the mend.

Itch, big Harry Chapin fan here too. I'm partial to "Taxi" and "Sequel" myself. Not only a great storyteller, but a great humanitarian as well.

A little bit of patchy fog here this morning, but should burn off later with highs once again in the 70sF. This is about 20 degrees above normal for this time of year, but I'm not complaining

Have a great hump-day, overs!

Dee,
Could you post a link to another thread where you give some details so you won't have to repost here? Sheesh! Now it sounds a lot more than a fall or bruise!


Thanks guys, yeah Harry was a loss.

Toots,
I can't imagine having fog for more than a bit of the morning! Ours is called cloudy as they stay up where they belong.

Hey Wolf! U2

Gotta go do something, anything.
