Groovy Weekend So Far

Thanks to the gentleman who gave me a tip about my trouble. I shall have to check into it. At last & finally, KrissyKrissyKrissy has arrived. She's Cousin Larry's daughter and will need more than a few lessons about life in the sticks. I just heard one of the library ladies saying that our unseasonably warm weather around here is the beginning of a new trend. Great Caesar's ghost I just saw on my e_mail thingy that it's in the low 60s!!! I remember some January's in this area when there was enough snow & ice for any three other states put together! Today's the First Saturday of the month so I suppose everybody at O.L.P.H. will be finished with Mass by now & at the continental breakfast in either the convent basement or school cafeteria.

Annoying Rainy Friday

It's pouring out and fifty two degrees is pretty odd for January. It's a lousy day. Everybody should do the Friday dance, the first of our brand spanking new year. My blogs are picking up traffic like plum loco. I can't understand why my site has gone down to saying I have no visitors. I know perfectly well I've most certainly gotten all sorts of feedback over there. I've still been reading those two books. The RFK biography is giving me all sorts of ammunition for the next time something relevant to those days comes up. I already knew most of his life story anyway. You'd be surprised how many people from that era have been household names since then too. I noticed the same thing when Ford died. January is usually flu season for me but somehow I've managed to avoid it so far. As far as I know, the weekend doesn't seem to be showing any signs of being all that nasty.

The Ronald & The Coin

My cousin The Ronald, in the State of Washington, with the help of other kinfolk, including his own young uns, has made all us kinfolk a commemorative family coin. Everybody is quite happy about it. It took lots of time & effort & we're all deliriously happy about the groovy job. Last night I saw Billy Crystal, Lisa Kudrow & Robert DeNiro in Analyze That. My computer still works but still I have to come usually to the library because I get only ten hours a month. KrissyKrissyKrissy will soon be visiting.

Oblada Oblada Life Goes On Bra...

So far 2007 doesn't seem to be determined to bring too many drastic changes into our lives. The library has a new system. It's like Copiague's now in the sense that they use the cards instead of just making us sign a sheet of paper to keep track of people. I finished the Flannery O'Connor book & have just started the Evelyn Waugh book. The RFK biography is quite riveting. Yesterday I joined the mailing list for the RFK Network. Please check out this mighty fine organization at: Thanks to the wide world o cyberspace, I'm now mixed up with all sorts of things.

Good Bye to Gerald R. Ford

Today's the day we bid a final ttfn to the 38th president. 2007 is finally and at last under way. This morning I made sure I got some details about my driver's license straightened out. On top of that, my car needed anti_freeze. I have to be especially frugal about my computer because I'm only entitled to ten free hours a month. D'oh! I'm still reading Wise Blood by Flannery O'Connor & that RFK bio. My blog traffic appears to be going through the roof. TheRonald got a commemorative coin for each of us. I have to go on a major & totally diet again.

Happy 2007

Best wishes for a right groovy new year. A lady I know from sent me a reaction to my comment on Saddam Hussein's death & I shall have to think of a response to it. Last night I watched the Marx Bros. Duck Soup. It was an otherwise entirely droll uneventful New Year's Eve. Today I wnet to 10 a.m. Mass at O.L. Sorrows. I read someplace that Alexander Solzhenitsyn once said that violence cannot exist in the absence of lies. Since today is both the Solemnity of Mary, the Mother of God & a World Day of Prayer for Peace, that's my one-liner for the new year.
