Under the Sign of the Clown





Hello! Whole lot of crazy in the air over here right now. Refugees! Marxists! Tornadoes!

And I’m just sitting here making keychains with pictures of the Duke of Wellington.

Yeah, 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo this year, in case you missed it. Kind of a big deal.

The flower arrangement? A Tribute to Cape Canaveral, if I recall aright. Another one from a church flower festival.

Times like these, I cling to the advice my old mother gave me: “be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet. And wear clean panties, in case you get in an accident and have to go to the emergency room.”




p.s. 200 year old tree blows over, thousand year old skeleton pops out. It’s a nuthouse, I tell ya.

Early spring and early fall always seem a little extra crazy.

There is a very nice cast iron bridge in the village of Betws-y-Coed in North Wales which was constructed in 1815, hence the name: The Waterloo Bridge. Still in use and worth a visit. The area is lovely.

We’re simply living through Robert Heinlein’s “Crazy Years.”

Good old thread-killer, me.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
