Sun , Rain And the Vdub

The picture is lame but it's that kinda day.

I'm headed to the post office to send scores to a clarinetist.

Great pic of where you live and nice profile pic as well.

Do you any sunshine in the forecast by the weekend.

I was wondering the other day
as to whether or not the Vdub
was still in the driveway, the very
last of the Palmer vehicular
projects. Nice to see it sitting there.
I forget, is that a Ferrari or a
Masarati painted on the side?
These coldish rainy days are
terrific for watching trash TV,
reading, working on your music,
napping, drawing, painting, building
a musical instrument, or blogging.
So shake off those doldrums and
seize the day, sir.
I decided to make this a four day
weekend, and if feels good being
home on a Friday; have some errands
and shopping to do before I decide
if I'm to seen IRON MAN II in a
theater, or just wait until it comes
out on DVD. I am adjusting well to
my new SUV ride. I am down three
pounds this week on my revenge
diet. I talked a coworker of mine
into meeting with my Bowen
treatment provider, and made the
introductions yesterday. Hope
friend Judy can help coworker
Natalie, who is recuperating from
a rear ender car wreck over Christmas.
FRINGE had a great 2-part finale,
and now we have to wait until the
Fall to get more great X-files stuff.
HOUSE is done for the season 6.
The demise of 24 and LOST does not
bother me. They had become tedium.
My TFC meeting on Wednesday last
was sparsely attended, but it was a
lively dozen who did come.
Next month we watch Godard's BREATHLESS,
Malle's ATLANTIC CITY, and Rudolph's
CHOOSE ME. Should be fun.

Dropped in at Alex's site this morning,
and wonder of wonders, there was
a comment of yours that was already
a poem, a tanka, a burst of composer's
whimsy and levity. i'm sure she dug
it, as did I, posting it post haste over
on FFTR. Your stuff seems to make
it to my site more than my own
inane scribblings.
I entitled your piece FOWL NOTES.

Ferrari, a 1955 formula one on this side, a 1949 F-1 on the other.

You are a blogging whirling dervish
there, sir, and your comments out
in the kelp, and in Funsterville have
been outstanding; well thought out,
poetic wordsmithing. What's got
into you? Haven't seen much action
from you over at the Applehouse,
but I am still grateful that you led me
to it. My 8 year old RCA 28" TV
took a dump on me last week, and
yesterday Joel stopped by to save
the day....again. We dropped off the
still almost working RCA to the
electronics recycling at Goodwill,
and then it was off to Walmart,
where I found a 37" flatscreen LCD
HD Sanyo on sale. Now I am watching
movies in HD and widescreen and
feel very smug about yet another
toy I have accumulated to keep me
smiling during that first year of
retirement. My Grand Vitara is
getting easier to drive as I adjust
these old bones to the new ride.
Today is my middle daughter's
birthday. She's 27, and wants to
go to the Cheesecake Factory in
South Center for her birthday
celebration. Comcast will come
over on Thursday to install the
HD cable box, and then my images
will really clear up; limping along
on the old classic cable digital
box presently. I watched the last
two hours of THE PACIFIC , taped
on VHS, on the Sanyo, and it was
astonishing to see even what a
VHS image taped in HD could
really look like. Same for Dr.WHO.

Oh dear, both the Vdub, the weather and the portrait have seen better days.
Never mind, all is not lost, you could also lose the
hair !
Stick with the music.

Actually my looks have eroded, that's a fact, but my days have never been better.

Well, hell, it be Tuesday,
and it will look like it
did in your pic for the
next week, sprinkled with
sun breaks, of course.
Wow, had a four-day week
end, and it felt terrific.
Yesterday I got deeper into
the Applehouse writing
assignment, doing some prep
for the three writings
asked to be done daily
this week. I am liking my
37" flat screen, but am
impatient to get the HD
cable box. It comes on
Thursday night. Some of
the landscaping crew
showed up yesterday, and
dropped the three trees
Melva gave the death
sentence to, and tossed
the rounds and branches
into a huge white truck.
Chainsaws serenaded me
for several hours. So
it's back to the office
for me this morning, and
things look quiet. There
was a notice that one of
our recent graduates, a
91 year old, has been back
in Spokane for one week
and now is hospitalized
with respiratory failure.
He seemed so hopeful for
the future as he left here.
Want to hear God laugh--
make a plan.
Nice to see Friko drop by
again. I still can't comment
on her British site from the
office. I can at home, but
keeping forgetting to check
it out. Anonomann must be
traveling. Things have been
quiet in Deutschland uber
and over alles.

I met a clarinetist at the P.O the other day. She was dressed in blue.

Hallo, Glenn!
I was in Turkey from 27 April to 4 May and in Lübeck from 13 - 16 May, but otherwise "zu Hause". I only get to the State Library here to use the computer once a week, so that's why you can't find me at this great blogsite more frequently.
