Fantastic event at Herman’s typewriter gathering this year. The weather was beautiful, lots of outdoor activity. If you want to see an impressive array of typewriters, you owe it to yourself to see the collection at Chestnut Ridge Typewriter Museum. Below are the photos I took in 2017.
Found a receipt-as-bookmark in a library book. Get n Go fuel receipt, February 15, 2016 — price per gallon, $1.77. Pretty good price for gas compared to today.
There was an amusement ride at one time
I chanced to climb upon, which held the
Thrill seekers hard up against a spun wall
Centrifugal force suspended us as the floor
Gave way beneath us, physics fully trusted
Regaining our footing we would laugh
Today the floor appears to have vanished
We have spun ourselves into a mire where
We dream that the spinning will not end
A year or so ago I purchased a used book from local book store Books Galore (YAY USED BOOK STORES!), and discovered a photo from the 1970’s used as a bookmark. I knew it was from the 70’s because, well, I’m from the 70’s.
Today I discovered a photo from 1997 in a library book I checked out. The book is newly published, 2017.
So, how did this 20 year old photo of li’l human critters end up as a bookmark in a brand new book? These kids are in their 20’s now. What are they up to? What stories do they have to share? ~TH~
I really like The West Wing. Yes, now that it’s over, it’s fairly easy to punch holes into it. But wow, what great writing.
I always enjoyed the tension between Danny ConCannon and C.J. Craig. Low and behold, I’m watching the film Stripes (because that shit is funny), and who do I recognize in the scene? The scene where some pleeb fires a mortar rocket at the observation deck where Sgt. Hulka is standing? Yep. Danny ConCannon.
I’m daydreaming the other day, thinking about the Beatles. Who was their first manager? Immediately the name Buddy Ebsen pops into my mind. I know of course that this is incorrect. Still, I let this montage of silliness take it’s course.
Yep. Jed Clampett is now the founder of a british invasion pop music group. Weeeeell doggie!
I will let your own mind fill in the blanks. For the record: I did come up with Brian Epstein shortly after. Not near as funny. ~TH~
