    Because of your post, I googled bacopas to see what they look like. What beautiful cute little flowers! Whenever I'm on a walk, it's wonderful to encounter little flowers like these.

    Maybe Vincent the Mop knows Steve the Mop from Michelle Obama's show, "Waffles and Mochi". (there really is a character named Steve the Mop on that show)

    What a wonderful series. This is inspiring me to get paper napkins from my local fast food places, and draw the building on the napkin.

  • Phthursday Musings: All-Star Life - by Phil Huckelberry

    Now I'm adding "A Drive into the Gap" onto my wish list with a priority of 'highest'. Your point about softball being a sport for people with strong hands and strong upper body resonates with me. I definitely have neither. In high school gym class there were guys who would smack the softball as far as one could see. I would be happy if I hit the softball out of the infield. To remedy for my lack of strength, I adapted my approach to softball to be a no-strikeout, run like crazy, and field like crazy. And that carries over to this day in how I select players for my personal Hall of Fame. Anyhow, it's so cool that the current and former media types continue to play softball. I somewhat regret never joining the Tribune team. But was there a Tribune softball team? I assume there was. Nobody in my group of Tribune was a part of it. But I never exactly asked around about it, because I knew I wasn't a good softball player. Now, if there was a croquet league, I'd be all over that. Not the proper all-white croquet, but backyard-style Xtreme croquet. (see my site from 2000-2002, There were times I'd talk about starting up some croquet games outside the Tribune Tower, but shoot. I never brought a set downtown. That would have been a lot of fun. Playing croquet during a lunch break on some small patch of grass.

    I hope you were able to get a typewriter. Some days I feel like going to my library to see if they have a typewriter. Just to type up something fun. (I found your photo with my typewriter kick today. searched "typewriter" on Flickr, limiting it to people I follow.)

  • Phthursday Musings: Squeezing Nonsense from a Sugarcube

    One of the places where I get notifications of your new posts is in my RSS reader, Feedly. Today I got on a typewriter kick, and I searched my Feedly "people" folder for typewriter. This post came up. I remember that typewriter ending. The way he flicks the paper in the air is always so cool. I wish I could do that with my computer. Maybe I could print something on my inkjet, and flick it into the air.
