There's been a lot going on and I've been busy with it. The world's been busy too, so it's a bit of a catch up time this morning.

If only we could go back in time and learn the real truth about Stonehenge. I think I'll make a pile of rocks in the backyard and tuck a little note inside explaining why I did it.

When they dug up an old gas station site here and turned it into a park, a lot of people threw things into the pit. Mostly decorated fake donuts. I threw a Barbie in there. I'd love to see what the future archaeos make of it. "A site of Goddess worship," I'll bet.

I'm glad you put that last link in, as the rest are so depressing.

I think I can look at pictures of lovely ladies wearing very little and having fun for a long time.

In a nice, non-pervy way of course.

Ah yes, what say we have a 'rock' concert at Stonehenge on the summer solstice? How about Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Yes and Jethro Tull? Would that work?
Enjoy your Sunday, Laura....
In kindness, Gary :)

TSB- Now how can Stonehenge be depressing? ;) I enjoy Carnival for everything it is and does. Including the half-naked people dancing around laughing. There should be more dancing and laughing.

Gary- talk about heavenly visions! I think I'd sell everything I own for that. Of course it'll never happen so it's safe to say that.
Sunday Best,
Laura
