the daily mis·cel·la·ne·ous, 9-14-20

What’s all this then? Clouds? No sun? No pool? No tan? No bobbing in the water? No coconut-themed suntan lotion? No size ten flippers-floppers? No colorful beach towel? No sunglasses? No flappy hat? No ill-fitting swimwear? No collective gasp of horror as I waddle to cabana/bathroom? No Lipps, Inc. playing Funky Town? No getting to know other swimmers by asking “What’s your problem?”?


The Purging Lutheran is scouting around for possible new stickers for our gulfcart affectionately known as ‘Screaming Kitty’. “Sugar, Sugar” is the first 45 My Sweet Rib bought as a girl. The Archies were, and maybe still am, a well-oiled rock and/or roll music machine. Bass player, Reggie, finally smiles in a way that doesn’t suggest he’s hoping for Archie’s demise. Money will do that to a guy.


This is our tennis ball parking marker in our garage. It is on the right side where we park Screaming Kitty, our gulfcart. Every time I pull into the garage and the tennis ball touches the windshield I say “Bink!”. Why isn’t it on the left side of the garage where we park the CRV? Because I’ve been too lazy to move it and I love saying “Bink!”.


Oops! How did they get in here? Shoo!
I remember winter. But that’s all. I don miss it one bit. Oh, by the way, this is My Sweet Rib. She’s a dame.



Song of Solomon 2:10-14

Get up, my dear friend,
fair and beautiful lover—come to me!
Look around you: Winter is over;
the winter rains are over, gone!
Spring flowers are in blossom all over.
The whole world’s a choir—and singing!
Spring warblers are filling the forest
with sweet arpeggios.
Lilacs are exuberantly purple and perfumed,
and cherry trees fragrant with blossoms.
Oh, get up, dear friend,
my fair and beautiful lover—come to me!
Come, my shy and modest dove—
leave your seclusion, come out in the open.
Let me see your face,
let me hear your voice.
For your voice is soothing
and your face is ravishing.
