Lounging on the river - what a life

On Wednesdays, Younger Daughter and her friend Miss Calamity volunteer at the county animal shelter, cleaning and feeding the cats. I noodle around town while waiting for them. This past week it was too beautiful to hole up inside, so Older Daughter and I decided to hang out on a dock on the river.


On the way, we passed this extraordinary sight. Doesn't a small part of you just long to hop inside and live the gypsy life? I found out later the wagon belongs to some wandering book artists. How cool is that?



This is where we spent two hours while the girls worked. Not a bad way to spend an afternoon, and I got nearly my entire WND column written too, thanks to the use of my trusty Alphasmart.

  3. Re: Last pic in the series...
    Is this the same daughter who was pensively sitting on the swing the other day? (July 5 - "Random Pix," pic #2) If so, she seems to be a very contemplative young person. Perhaps she will be a scholar or philosopher (or blogger) in her time? Maybe she'll write the great American novel? I'd give another penny for her thoughts, but know that intruding would be inappropriate.

  5. Well thank goodness for alphasmart. There are some colorful characters who dwell on the riverbanks as I'm sure you are aware Patrice. The only problem is that they do not want to be RULED by an elitest bunch of overpriced or useless as it were snotty snobs in D.C Dobbs, Frank and the rest of the scum who should in jail! YEAH.. it don't sound too bad.

  6. Different daughter? My bad! Guess I earned the "Twit" moniker this time for sure. LOL


    Um, that's Dodd, not Dobbs my friend Lloyd. Dobbs is off CNN and on radio - not a bad guy.
    Dodd and Frank should indeed be in prison. Along with a about another 400 in DC who take our taxpayer money and then do everything in their power to enslave us. We can't all hang out at the river, though, somebody has to mind the store.

  7. Thanks for the correction AT. I have to slow 'er down a bit because I didn't see it after reading it twice. I thought at my age that maybe I could enjoy that life if I wanted to but I can see that option slipping away.
