Going somewhere, not too far
For just a little while
A visit maybe, A tiny trip
To enjoy a new little smile!
Guess where I’ve gone,
It’s somewhere I’ve been
And no, it’s not to drink some gin!
While I’m there, I’ll see the old and the new
And even some in-betweens
They’ll plant themselves into my memory
Paintings of very special scenes.
If you have a friend or two,
whom you think might like my words,
Please send them this link,
Tell 'em I write 'bout dog turds!
If you like what you read
When I write through my fog
Do me a favor, and please
Pimp my blog!
OK, weak attempt at pimping my blog while I’m gone, but if this blog makes you laugh, and you know someone who could use a laugh, please send them the link!
Oh, and speaking of the dog turd incident, of course, this a.m. when I had to rush out the door because Tukey had a field trip and I had to drive them all to school today, gee, guess who had dog doo on the bottom of his shoe??? So, I had to pull a CSI move on the shoes later, with a toothpick and scrubber to get the remnants out of the bottom of the shoe. Thanks again, idiot neighbor.

And, here are some book recommendations you might like, but I don't have time to link you to Amazon:
Sister Salty, Sister Sweet, A Memoir of Sibling Rivalry,
By Shannon Kring Biro and Natalie Kring
Identical Strangers -- another sister memoir, about identical twins separated at birth through a secret twin project, who are reunited when they are 35, never having known each was an identical twin.
Look Me In The Eye -- By the awesome John Robison, brother to August... too tired to look up the spelling... Burroughs... a book on aspergers syndrome. Have not read it yet, but am looking forward to it! John has occasionally stopped by and commented over at MM so of course, I'm starstruck!
Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac -- Just purchased today, by Gabrielle Zevin. While the title appears it's a memoir, it's not. It's fiction, and YA. Looks promising.
SLAM by Nick Hornby -- sounds cool, and Ajers couldn't believe I got a book about skating and Tony Hawk, but come on, I'm a cool mom, right? The dude's about to start college and he's got a hot chick, but then he gets into some sort of trouble...
AND DEAR GOD, IT'S 10:25 AND I HAVE NOT FINISHED PACKING!...
Getting Rid of Matthew ... sorry, it's upstairs and I can't remember the author's name... again, too rushed to google it for ya! But the chick is having an affair and she has begged the dude to leave his wife for years, and finally, he does and she decides she doesn't really like the guy anymore. Isn't that how it always is? You can't always get what you want... or something like that.
The Abstinence Teacher, by Tom Perrotta...
Need I say more? Election and Little Children, anyone? Which, btw, I have a hardcover copy of Little Children with the goldfish crackers on it, not the one they changed with choc chip cookies or a bag of fishy goldfish... that's gotta be worth something on ebay.
And coming my way soon via amazon.com, Alice Sebold's The Almost Moon, which I have been waiting for YEARS for her next book after The Lovely Bones. She murders her mom in this one. And, if you've never read Sebold's memoir Lucky, it's amazing! I found that one before The Lovely Bones, and I actually like Lucky more so.
That's all for Books in Review...
Now, go read something...
Peace UP! Be safe.
