Just now, my wife yells up the steps and says there's a present for me. Apparently, my neighbor, whose name I haven't a clue (we're new here and only lived here 6-1/2 years so we don't know both our neighbors yet :D we are bad people) Sent over a pair of books. Apparently he saw me put out the bait hive in the disputed property between our homes (long interesting story there too... ) Thought I might find them interesting. I am going to have to learn their names. There is one daughter in the home that works at our Food Lion so I know here name (she wears a name tag.) But I haven't a clue anyone else in the whole house. :) I will definitely have to learn their names now... :)

Those are some ancient texts they've got there, would be interesting to see how they got a hold of them. I assume they just had them lying around instead of going out and getting them for you?

He just happened to have them. I haven't spoken to him yet but I am sure they just happened to have them. They both have Kelley's sticker in them. They are both at around the 1973 printing.

Some day I will have honey again and will make sure to share some. I think what they want is us to play Pickle Ball with us.

Am I? Last think I ever remember was Thanatos <sp> and that was like grade or middle school a million years ago
Reallly? You have a "Keeping of bees is like the direction of sunbeams" quote by HDT hanging on your wall. Oh, THAT Thoreau.

Cool score on the books.

Ok, ya made me Google it. How is it that I have never heard of a game that is nearly as old as I am? I need to get out more.

JW: I have never heard of it either. I was a little scared to google it. Never know what kids are up to these days.

That wood cut print was a birthday gift from my daughter that she got from an Etsy artist. I like the quote, but never found out if it was just something he said or it was part of a poem or book. But I never read him seriously, other than when it was for a grade :) Honestly I never read much of him and am not all that familiar with his philosophy. Though, what I have read I did enjoy. So maybe someday, when all the people on earth are gone... and Oh, no ... not my only pair of glasses :)

One more thing for the list.

It's been around since 1965 and there is even an association for it. Funny thing I hadn't heard of it until last year, and never heard of anyone playing it until they said something about it... and they just had a whole episode on The Goldbergs about it... Who knew.. I guess it would be safer to play pickle ball than to get them to go shagging with us. I have no idea when social dancing will be safe again. :(

I debated trying to keep this going... I thought better of it, considering that it may be obscure references for many. :) Oldschool Fan though! I can still Rod's voice in my head from time to time.

Oh, I am getting some. I have spoken with a few local and some a little farther away in state. Just a matter of availability and moneys. Probably have them by April. Unless there are swarms on goldenrod.

I try to catch the old re-run marathons when they come up. They don't make them like that anymore.
