Tiptoe Tuesday

The tulips are poking through; some of the daffodils are in full bloom. But oxalis dominates. Squirrels are raiding the bird feeders, as usual.

Ruth said I could use her sighting. Each year about this time, down on MacArthur, a tax outfit takes up residence in the old video store next to Subway. Each night in the thick of the commute time a kid dressed as Lady Liberty stands and jiggles and twirls a sign, aiming to lure in tax neophytes as he (and it has always been a he in our neighborhood) dances. Recently she passed by and noticed the police taking down the latest Lady Liberty, who knows what this child did. He was spread-eagled. he pointy foam crown on Lady Liberty's head askew. Just sayin'....My husband gets upset when I suggest he could get a job--any part time job-- to help meet the current gap,including doing a Lady Liberty stint. I envision that I'd sell my body, if times were excruciating (depending on pt of view), but who would want it? Comes to mind. Just sayin'....

Just when you thought it couldn't get any better...Daniel Handler plays the ACCORDION:

A friend at work, Diana, and I are working out way through the Lemony Snicket series of unfortunate adventures. Oh would that I had these gloomy tomes to read as a kid.

Hail, Bopp

Twice it hailed today, a harbinger of pagan rites ahead?
