  • 'The Lord God made them all' ... Maggie,too

    "All things bright and beautiful,

    all creatures great and small,

    all things wise and wonderful:

    the Lord God made them all."

    -Cecil Frances Alexander

    from All Things Bright and Beautiful

    Cats are interesting creatures. I love their individual personalities and the "I will, but only because I want to," mentality they project. There's something comforting about a cat curling up on my lap in the evenings.

  • This may be the time to go honky punk

    When I was a kid, I found an old 78 record in our basement that featured Hank Williams singing "Cold, Cold Heart" on one side, and "Dear John" on the other. Those old 78s were nigh indestructible, as were the 45s that came later. I know this because "Dear John" is hanging on my family room wall, right beside my Dean Dillon "Slick Nickel" album and my James Dean poster.

    Anyway, I was listening to the radio the other day and heard an introduction for Hank Williams III.
