Friday Round Up

Why it's taken me so long to provide this link is beyond me, but here it is. I don't think I have to say anything more.

Wikis-Wikitravel, Muppet Wiki, Fluwicki,Cookbook Wiki, Sailwicki and Wookiepedia-a Star Wars wiki.

Fantasies-I have many. A fantasy that I have had for a very long time has me and Mon driving down the road in a candy-apple red convertible, great music wafting through the air-Nat singing Route 66, a little Brubeck, a little AWB from back in the day, and the Mother Road-Route 66. I have always had this thing for dirt roads, two-lane roads, the Lincoln Highway and Route 66. How cool would it be to own some property along this treasured-route?

And speaking of Route 66 these women have lived out my fantasy. Monica, you and I should have done this. Maybe in our retirement we can get that red convertible, put our old AWB and Barclays music on and make this trip.

The weather is cool and wonderful and it's the time of year when I love to explore cemeteries. And speaking of cemeteries who knew that Costco has caskets.

People have a lot of time on their hands and are very clever. None more so than the person who has this website. Oh yes, cats that look like Hitler. Now there's something I never thought I would be typing.

I came upon my admiration for Winston Churchill sort of in a roundabout way. I read a mystery where his mother Jennie Jerome was featured many years ago and that caused me to find out more about her famous son. The Library of Congress has an excellent exhibition about Winston Churchill.

A friend told me about Norma Valentines photographs on Flickr. That's all I am going to say.

"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."
John Muir (1838 - 1914)

Hello there Libby,

First, thank you for the Darfur link, new to me and I had been hiding from that whole ordeal.

Thanks also for many fun diversions, especially those PA chicks on the Rt. 66 vacation. I am quite a fan of the virtual vacation myself!

Doll photos were curious, not loading too well with my dial up but I plan to explore further on hi-speed. FlikR sure is a swell place, makes me want to get a digital camera and start playing around with images. Must avoid that temptation!

Gonna update my equipment tomorrow, still having troubles viewing your blog but I am thinking this machine is way overdue for an upgrade.

Hope all is well! TL

Hi Laundress,

Thanks for still reading my blog even though you are having problems. I don't have hi-speed internet at home either, so it's a bit of a challenge working on the blog, but it's still doable. Take care, L.
