The Fool. He Suspects Nothing.

Just look at him.  The genial, glad-handing imbecile.  At the bed with the paper every morning, by the door with the slippers every night.  Even now, the little toady waits at his usual place, on top of the large “X” conveniently drawn on the sidewalk.  Yessss, keep waiting… That’s a good boy…

Lamest. Whack-A-Mole. Ever.

I mean, there’s just the one hole, and they don’t even let you use a mallet!  Seriously, what’s up with that?

This Blue Jay’s Here to Stay

Rescue a bird, make a friend; that’s the blue jay way. In this video from The Weather Channel, a nice South Carolina man did a good deed for a feathered neighbor, who now visits him every day for hors d’oeuvres and gossip, not to mention a bit of sunbathing on his porch.

Oh, Go Fly A Kite!

With the waning of August and the approach of cooler fall breezes, the time is right to fly a kite!  Whether you prefer the swoops and dives of “stunt” kites, or the peaceful, serene floating of the classic box kite, you’ll find kite flying to be a relaxing way to spend quality time with family and friends.

It’s a good idea, however, to weigh more than six pounds.

They Grow Up So Fast…

Those fragile, squinting eyes; those tentative first steps; that precious moment when they look to you with faces that radiate pure love.  And before you know it…

… they’re engaging in scandalous butt-biting (in plain sight of the entire Ladies Aid Society and Sewing Circle, mercy!), smashing up the Mercedes and calling you at 3AM to bail them out of Juvenile Hall.

And let’s give sender-inner DB a great big little hand!

Seriously, You’re Wearing That?

No, really, it’s a together look.  Those checkerboard leggings really work with the plaid in that kilt, the feather boa nicely softens the effect of those leather gauntlets, and that “Partridge Family” lunch box makes a chic evening bag.  And I agree with you: That yellow-and-pink bra is too pretty to be worn underneath your blouse; good call on that one.  So you’ll be home early, then?
