Just in time for Hallowe'en.
I'm not going to paste the photo here. I don't even want to think about it any more...
(Thank you God [or whatever] for making me a denizen of here and now.)
...in which the writer argues that she's a performance artist.
Not a new theory, but I think a letter writer, "Tripemonkey", got it right:

So the name of a nearby town is Perth and the river flowing through is called the Tay. The whole area was settled by Scots (after the Natives, of course), who built nice stone buildings. There are a lot of Scots descendants in the area. Including me, tho… Read full post »

The sumac says a fiery goodbye.
Wild asparagus - hard to find the young stalks in the spring. Now is the time to mark the spots. (Ditto in my garden.)
Fall is so beautiful that… Read full post »
The giant spiders were at an import shop we often stop at.
Other neat things. Too bad they won't fit in the car.
Also colorful things - here's a… Read full post »
My friend Alex had heard about this technique and, since for his work he has tools in his van, he decided to try it out at Harvest Fest last weekend.
It's a white pumpkin, just for a change.
Pumpkin debris happens

I think I've finally got it figured out – they LIKE fighting.

That's the name of the art installation at Fieldwork, a place near here for large-scale outdoor art works. I went to the opening party for Ear to the Ground - a giant ear made of deadwood, with a drum in the middle. Get it? - ear drum.… Read full post »
A couple of blocks in Montreal's Gay Village closes down in the summer and forms a promenade.
All sorts of people stroll - families with kids, old straight couples, young straight couples, all kinds of people mingling with the denizens of the area. Among whom this… Read full post »
My friend/handyman/neighbor Frank had a litter of puppies recently. Didn't mean to. A couple of his dogs got cozy. He already had 20 or so dogs and he does dog-racing in the winter. Seems like as lot of trouble and dogs for three short races in the… Read full post »
Linda posted about the finds at her local thrift shop and put up some pictures. Yesterday was my stint at volunteering at our local thrift shop - which is the "Re-use Centre" at our local country dump. It's a Free Store.
While working there yesterday I picked up… Read full post »
"So," I said to the young man who's been helping me this summer, as I delivered him home (he usually bikes it, but today he brought a chainsaw), "I'm not the only person in the area who builds strange constructions." He sort of snickered as he agreed. (He's… Read full post »
So my friend emailed me to say the Water Buffalo Food Festival was today - oops, sorry for late notice. Come next year, and sleep over. S'okay, I wouldn't have gone unless someone went with me - bit of a drive,
Yeah, I know, awful title. But it was either that or Canada Goes to Pot, which is too motheaten. (High moths - contemplate.)
I suppose I could have gone with a Serious title. Hrrumph, or such.
Can't see a way to send you a PM.
Given the outpouring of love and sorrow about Sirenita, a wonderful demonstration of our community here, how about - if not the entire cover - featuring a few posts that have been put up for her and her thank-you post. … Read full post »
I have another RL friend, who is in a similar situation. She is taking it gracefully too, and when I visted she said her motto is "Every day is brilliant." A group of us did a ritual for her at the Full Moon on Monday and sang this chant. It's… Read full post »
So I'm reading about how J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series, has been unveiled as Robert Galbraith, author of the crime novel, The Cuckoo Calling.
I found the Potter books unreadable (and the movies unwatchable)...tho I did feel a few pangs about not having had… Read full post »

Couple weeks ago I did a post about how while visiting Seattle with my younger daughter she realized she'd left one of her pill bottles behind and how I found our dealings with a local hospital to be bit pricey, but all in all okay. Drug store wouldn't… Read full post »
