All I want for Xmas

All I want for Xmas Is my pink princess phone, like this one. I think it’s somewhere in the garage, along with a giant box of 60-year old baby shoes.

Happy b-day , Thomas William Torgerson

Thomas William Torgerson, aka Dad, September 27, 1924 - November 1, 1973.  A good man, lovingly remembered to this day. A rare picture, as he was usually holding the Brownie. We were visiting folks. In Oklahoma, 1954. I still wear glasses like this and the dress is probably still in the garage.

So I gave my brother a ukelele for his birthday. He looked at the wrapped box and said, "what's this. A UKELELE???" We've never talked about prior. The plain-brown-paper-wrapped figurine didn't give it away, either.

D-Day Landings

Peter Macdiarmid has taken photographs of locations in France and England to match with archive images taken before, during and after the D-day landings. Photography then and now lets you move through time by tapping or clicking on a historic image to reveal the modern view.

Plus: D-Day is our anniversary, just so you know.

Getting a lot of snapshots scanned (declutter, declutter, declutter), but not the few panoramics I have on hand. October 20, 1991, was a strange day indeed. Wondering how far the firestorm would march.

King Cake!

A colleague at work brought in a King Cake today. Here’s a nutrition estimate, if you dare….


Worth it? Indeed.  Plus: good wobble dance below. Dang, I am heading to NOLA next Mardi Gras…or at least organize a neighborhood parade.

Go Cosonic

My instructions for new headphones: Drawing processed surface of the
shell, metal felling clip of modern design, Hi-fi speakers make the sound
clear and clasp and intermediate frequency sound durable and reliable.
Bending resistance high quality cable make it perfect.

I love claspy sound.

First squirrel of the year. Go, diligent squirrel.

Thank you for being a valued customer

For the record, SO left Saturday from Emerville on the Zephyr, heading for NYC. Tuesday night three trains were stranded 100 miles from Chicago, with me getting voicemail: “Your train from Chicago to NYC has been cancelled. There are no other alternatives. Thank you for being a valued Amtrak customer.”  Wednesday all passengers went via bus to Chicago, stalled trains overnight apparently having heat and not much else. The overwhelmed staff in Chicago managed to find him a route through DC, with a sleeper, so he’s set to arrive tonight, only a day late. Doubt that flying would have been much better this time of year. Photo snagged from cbsnews.

Cooper Kitty

Dearest Cooper left us Monday evening, with the vet coming to end the drawn-out illness. Last night kitty Huey and I sat on the couch, while he watched bird videos on youtube, all excited, and I thought about Coopie Coop. Another good grey boy gone…wah.

New Definition?

Making potato salad, I was lost in thought. Wondering, is TWACKING a word?  May I invent this definition?   Suggestive hip shaking performed while waving a sign protesting oil policy.
