Personally, I think I'm rather boring and dull. I figured that wouldn't make good copy so I asked a bunch of friends how they'd describe me. Everybody said I was "intriguing". That's a nice double-edged word, don't you think? Kind of like something you want to stare at from a distance or with a good, solid, thick piece of steel reinforced glass between you and whatever you're looking at.
Me, if I think something's intriguing, I want to know more about it but I don't want to get too close while getting to know more about it. Know what I mean?

Next came "multi-dimensional, refined and cerebral" and in that order except for one person who actually used "refined and cerebral" together. Okay. I might get invited to more parties being "multi-dimens

Spring Kits

We’re happy to report Hyacinth and her kits made it through another winter. They woke pretty much on schedule and came for their…umm…dinner? A bit late for breakfast or lunch. Unless they’re working 3rd shift. Which is possible. Raccoons are usually nocturnal. At least around here. Except when they’re preggers and/or nursing. Either one, they … Continue reading "Spring Kits" Read more of this blog post »

The Seed by Dan Thomas

I'd truly rather give The Seed a 4.5 than a 4. I read this book as a preteen in the late 1960s and it made such an impression that I used it as a yardstick to measure other books I was reading. I reread it a few years back and it held up for the most ...more

An interesting story that can't decide if it's journalism, biography, or history. The writing style kept wandering between them as if Huckelbridge couldn't decide which form served the story better and kept experimenting.
That aside, No Beast So Fierc
