Pinned toot


I was very glad to hear that the woman on the radio station doesn't want to leave. She is quite emphatic about it.

Clouds in the sky
Sun in my heart
No reason to cry
I know we'll never part.


(also barranco)
barrancas, barrancos
A narrow, winding river gorge.

Late 17th century from Spanish.


Bob built a bridge over the barranca to avoid driving an extra ten miles to reach his ranch.


Thank you for making a connection.

I hope you find a UK person to help you with the dog relate charity project.

Who needs a Harry Potter Deathly Hallows pendant?

"Happy Fathers Day"

Mothers have a day
Fathers also, 'ray!
Without a kid, none.
All year then, have fun.

Daily change
Isn't strange.
Being stable
Is a fable.


Hope you'll stay involved with the fediverse from somewhere, at least enough to check on the how things change over time. A little-used account is better than a closed one.

...which you choose to implement is significant.

A beautiful golden retriever was 10 yards ahead of its human companion. It looked to me as if the walk was coming close to its end.

Then I looked more closely and noticed one of those reel-style leash contraptions... the dog's mouth.

Random thought:

A cooling fan run by anything other than solar/wind/hydro/geothermal is probably also a net heat contributor. I wonder what the balance is?

It brings me joy, not sorrow.

Slipping in a silly rhyme
Here, from time to time.
