Dammit. This post was supposed to be scheduled for Monday, duh. So I’ll just have to find something else to recommend for Monday.
So this guy pops up and comments on my blog. He says he likes my humor and my environmental concern, and tells me he has a picture of a frog I might like to look at. Normally, a line like that wouldn’t get me into a van with a stranger, nor yet up to his room, but I did visit his blog, Bob Lorentson — An Optimist in Dreamland.
Bob Lorentson is possibly the funniest guy on what’s left of God’s green earth. That’s my opinion, anyway. Not always funny, though. His poem, What’s The Hurry? is pretty grim, and rightly so.
But then there’s Migratory Bird Daze, an essay — perhaps not surprisingly — entirely about migratory birds.

ANYWAY, in other news, I’m still playing Minecraft, and I found a Minecraft nail stamping plate! So here are my nails this week:
