Car with the windows down preferred, dancing around in your socks optional. Enjoy yourself!
For all others, wishing you hot fun in summertime. I shall be in Neuroramaville, saving bad brains--one neuron at a time.

of the World Renowned JUST PLAIN FUN TO READ award
from http://alifewithaview.blogspot.com/, and, while it was a honor
to be nominated, it is way more fun to actually have the award and to have posters, banners, stationery and Tshirts printed with the quirky and sweet illustration.
Run on over to San's site and have a look/see. The last post (or one from this past Friday) has oodles of interesting sites to browse through and provide excellent excuses NOT to clean out the bathroom linen closet.
Like we really need a reason--we are Writers :>).

A brunette, a redhead, and a blonde walk into a human resources department to apply for a job. The brunette goes into the interview first and the employer asks, "How many D's are in Indiana Jones?" She thinks for a minute and says," Two, no, one. One."
The employer says, "Good. I'll be calling you back for a second interview."
The redhead then goes in and the employer asks, "How many D's in Indiana Jones?" She immediately answers, "One." The employer smiles and says, "Excellent. I'll be calling you back for a second interview."
The blonde goes in next and the employer again asks, "How many D's in Indiana Jones?" She thinks for a bit and says, "Two, five, ten...do you have a calculator?...Twenty-six, sir."
The employer,flabbergasted, leans back in his chair and says to her, "How on earth did you come up with that number?" The blonde proceeds to sing,"dum, da dum, dum, dum de dum..." (Think movie theme song, then let the groaning commence.)

Yes, I know that he was prone to bleeding due to the medications he was taking for blood clots in his legs, and it would have only taken a slight bump...but the couch?? Et tu Brutus??
I love, love, love to recline on my couch. It is my sanctuary. And I believe it loves me right damn back. I cannot believe that because of this inconvenient piece of information it is no longer a haven of safety for me, a "soft place to fall" as Uncle Phil likes to say (again and again and again--enough, you crazy old coot).
Okay, I surrender. I'm going to go lay on the couch, put my feet up, and, yes, I will put on my helmet.

We went to the Holiday Auto-In last night for a little goonies and greased lightening action. Jillie (thank you, thank you, thank you) came in early for me so I could get up and out, home by 7:15 and on the road to Butler County by 7:30. It ended up to be only a 45 minute drive from where we live and we arrived in plenty of time for my hubby's peace of mind. One nice thing about CinCity---a short drive can get you smack dab in the middle of corn country. US 27/ "Highway to Heaven" is a beautiful piece of road.

The door buzzer rings with visitors for Mr. P. We explain that he is being examined by the neurosurgeons and having procedures done. Next thing I hear is, "Tell them to hurry up so we can visit him. We just drove down from Dayton."
First job. In tight black shorts
boys in black tee shirts and slick hair.

figure wearing number
late for the fly ball,
like a lame truckhorse
startled by a gartersnake,
—this old fellow
whose body we remember
as sleek and nervous
as a filly's—
and barely catches it
in his glove's
tip, we rise
and applaud weeping:
On a green field
we observe the ruin
of even the bravest
body, as Odysseus
wept to glimpse
among shades the shadow

Found this on http://utteroutrage.blogspot.com/, and when he was looking the other way, I up and stole it. Has anyone else heard of this group before?? They're really beautiful...
On another note, you know the drill--wear your seatbelt, put your helmet on, and keep the firecrackers AWAY from your face. Cannot over emphasize the AWAY part of that reminder, as in NOT TOWARDS your face. Got it? Good.
