Blogsam and Jetsam

Flotsam is the part of the wreckage of a ship or its cargo found floating on the water. Jetsam is cargo or parts of a ship that are deliberately thrown overboard, as to lighten the ship in an emergency, and that subsequently either sinks or is washed ashore. This is my personal blog version of the above. Loot freely.

I'm annoyed that the world is going crazier faster than it used to be. But it's interesting to watch.

Quickie Text

Went to the neighboring county fair on Sunday for the sole purpose of riding rides. Good stuff till the Big Two got sick (in one case literally) of riding rides.

Asian lilies on the way out but damned if the beebalm didn't send up a whole bunch of new shoots after the phlox bloomed. Then the carnations started after I didn't even think they would. For the first year of a perennial bed it's been just incredible.

I finally managed to finish the body of the Mitten-for-Eldest which has been on the needles for simply ever...but have only done about three rows of thumb. Hoping to get more excited now that fall is sneaking in at the edges up here.

Am playing Famous Local in an upcoming parade complete with vintage costume.

Off to Philadelphia for a long weekend including the Four Seasons and King Tut...first ANY kind of vacation in a year and three months and first HOTEL vacation since 2004. Excited I am. Like Yoda it makes me speak.
