A Blog Or Three To You From Me

That was a little poem up there in the subject line, as a tribute to Ogden Nash and the blog — named, as The Master would have approved, Blogden Nash — run by Nash aficionado “John.” Lovely blog, and welcome catalog of Nash poems.

If you haven’t trailed new commenter Dan Antion back to his lair, you’re missing a treat. No Facilities is a must-not-miss, especially this post about two kinds of people. Dan, there are two kinds of people: the kind who finish what they start.

I have a new obsession: the art of Abigail Larson. She warms the cockles of this MomGoth’s heart. I’m especially charmed by this Scary Kid illo.

Oh–one more thing: Come to my church tonight, if you’re in the neighborhood, to hear some stories from Philip Gulley, Quaker preacher and storyteller. $15 a pop, and cheap at the price. There will be snacks.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Pick a “two-kinds-of-people” joke and write a story about them.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
