They are talking about Chris and Mary and the few others that live on Mt. Misery Rd. I've seen that white dog deep in the pines sitting on a 3 ft. pine stump.

It was really eerie. It looked like a ghost as I drove by. I stopped the Jeep and we just stared at each other. He was my height on the stump and sat very

upright to accommodate the small perch and this enhanced the human appearance. When I opened my door to approach he slipped off the stump and slowly walked into the brush.

3.31.11 Stuck in front of this damn screen again- a bucks a buck.

Michaelsen might make mighty music magically mixed and mastered masterly. A quintet of of his musings:

With all of the gifts you have bought,
And your kids have been given a lot,
Beyond what you'd thought,
The one thing they've got
Is the value that you hadn't taught.

A leg up will gain upper hand.
If we fall, we must know how to land.
We all have to try
For success, by and by.
Over-sit and we won't understand.

An unsurpassed genius named Jake
Takes one more back seat to a fake.
Refusing to tell us, he
Suffers from jealousy.
Give the poor soul a fair shake.

Sometimes these write themSELVES.

MURPHY’S LAWYER

With judges he's not good at dice.
He's never found justice, just ice.
With chances aborted,
His clients are shorted,
And last guys do not finish nice.

Another one that wrote itself.

Not once have you threatened to foil me.
There's no higher standard than loyalty.
'Twas NO fuss, your highness;
Your plus was my minus.
A friend should be treated as royalty.

3.30.11 This March came in like a lion and is leaving the same way.

3.29.11 Where am I? Where are you? Where are we all going?

Look at a true genius:

 

3.24.11

Burnt out this morning.

3.23.11 Speechless at 60.

3.21.11 What a difference a season change makes. A 'sea change' in fact.

So long Lee Novak. We are going to miss your face after 30 years sitting across from you.

3.20.11 Big nuts!

3.20.11 That's it. Heard the peepers last night which means another winter didn't kill me, almost but not quite. Spring, also known as the vernal equinox, officially starts on March 20, 2011 at 7:21 pm EDT for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere. First daffodils:

3.19.11 Peepers sung away winter.

3.18.11 Nice day today, for some. It's warm here.

3.17.11 One day a year everyone is Irish (and that's enough!)

"Maireann croi eadrom i bhfad." (A merry heart lives long.) Gaelic makes Greek look easy.

“Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.” - Samuel Beckett

“If suffering brings wisdom, I would wish to be less wise.” - William Butler Yeats

3.16.11 Nothing.

3.15.11 Thirteen was too young Amber. She was in the Toopine movie called 'Stop'. See it here.

3.14.11

3.11.11 Fixing up a laptop for Mary. Techroom:Burning broken branches in the studio:

3.10.11 My brother Dan wins a big one for a raped kid. Maybe someone will listen next time. Justice is a concept and in reality all we have is law and you better have someone like Daniel Maxmillion Sedon sitting next to you in a courtroom if you expect anything remotely resembling justice to prevail. Good job Dan!

Danny wins

3.9.11 Found some old Wa cartoons, and still have no idea of where he wanders or what he's up to. Here's to you Tommy.

3.8.11 Small Pineroad thing soon.

3.7.11 Waiting for the peepers to sing in the swamps and then winter will be over. Dames rocket starting up:

3.3.11 O.V. Michaelsen has, and continues to explore the great forests of words, bending them into new layers of meaning with his sardonic perspective or rearranging a phrase or word to magically work backwards or forwards with strange, new, sometimes ironic ideas emerging. Individual letters must swirl tornado-like in his imagination until out of the chaos meaning reveals itself. Here at Toopine his generous contributions are usually in the highly defined, restricted form of the limerick. Ove seems to thrive in this stylistic cage happily pushing the artistic possibilities within the tight confines and easily blowing the doors off. He's never bawdy, always gently clever and fun.

IQS

Feynman's was 124,
Shared by his colleague Niels Bohr.
Not nearly as shocking
Is Einstein and Hawking
Had 161. What's the score?

Another:

The score is that something is wrong with those tests.A leg up will gain upper hand.
If we fall, we must know how to land.
We all have to try
For success, by and by.
Over-sit and we won't understand.

3.2.11 Corkboard stuff.

3.1.11 Somebody might be nuts.

First croci to celebrate the end of the snow blanket:
