~ The heat is on!

Playing with fire is bad for those who burn themselves. For the rest of us, it is a very great pleasure.
~ Author Unknown

Man is the only creature that dares to light a fire and live with it. The reason? He alone has learned to put it out.
~ Henry Jackson Vandyke, Jr.

If you ever catch on fire, try to avoid seeing yourself in the mirror, because I bet that's what really throws you into a panic.
~ Jack Handey

Since the house is on fire, let us warm ourselves.

Every day this week, I've toyed with the idea of taking an afternoon nap. I'm thinking today may just be the day. I've been awake since 3:30 a.m., after getting about two hours of sleep.

ZZZzzzzzzzzzz . . .

Thank you, kindly, for all the nice comments (and sales!) on last week's crop of ACEOs. They're fun to make -- seeing my work in this mini-size is a kick and a half!

Winter's Over! ~ sigh ~

I had to turn the air conditioner back on a couple of days ago. Mid-70's today and for the next five or six days, at least-- warm enough for bare feet.

I am not amused!

Did anyone catch Tony Bennett's duet with Michael Buble on yesterday's "Oprah"? Two of my very favorite men -- one, w-a-y too old for me, and the other, w-a-y too young.

What's a girl to do?

1. Correct answer is c. Who really cares if cats are eating oranges, anyway?

2. Correct answer is c. Freshly mown hay? Hear me wheeze.

3. Correct answer is c. Starving artists are a burden on an overtaxed society. I'm offering you an opportunity to alleviate that burden.
