Pants On Fire

Every day I have more evidence that reality is way stranger than fiction. And people are stranger than either. Amid close encounters of the nerd kind, close brushes with certifiably nutty people and lovely time spent in good company, this week jammed on by.

Special K is moved in and I'm standing by as a home base for any needed anything. The sun is shining and my rose bushes are reaching for the source. I'm relieved and impressed at everything that survived and seems to be thriving post-flood here. Even the hummingbirds and yellowjackets are out in force. Some of the trees didn't fare as well, unfortunately.

We lost Donna Summer, Chuck Brown,  Vidal Sassoon and Goober of "The Andy Griffith Show" this week.

Some random stuff:
But was she a liar?

Another sign of the Catholic Church's decline?

If I don't get back here, have a great weekend.

Since most fiction is based on someone's reality it stands to reason that the original will be pretty strange. Have a good weekend ... we'll be thinking of you.

They're all weird.

Strange flying objects
Exploding shorts
Reproductively challenged bishops
Foodies.

Actually it's the foodies that scarer me the most.

Anyone willing to die for organic cranberries is nuts.

My nephew's wife had already sent me the hot rocks link (v weird indeed) and I have now reciprocated by sending her the link to the very clever story about the bishops. That is also weird, but it makes me sad and angry too.
You do find the best links. Thank you.

Lawless- You never really have seen it all, have you? Every time I think I have, someone does something that makes predecessors look ilke amateurs.

TSB- They are a welcome distraction to me. It's the rich and the world leaders that really scare me.

EC- Thanks, I try. There's a wealth of weirdness these days!
