Friday Night Potpourri

End of the week thoughts:

  • The Giants beat the Dodgers tonight in Los Angeles. I'd love to be there.
  • Just found out yesterday we have to move within 20 days. Should be really fun. I don't know how this will affect blogging.
  • A large branch from the neighbor's olive tree broke off over the fence and landed in our yard. This year, this tree has been terribly messy with its leaves and fruit. Are olive trees always messy?
  • This fascinating snip from Jason at Pilgrim's Pub: "Aocedrnig to rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at rghit pelae. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wihtout a porbelm. This is beuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe."
  • Another song played on the phonograph in the fourth grade. The all time number one June hit. Every kid's favorite.


  1. What a relief. I can stop looking up words in the dictionary now - ha!

  2. If it's not prying, why do you have to move.

  3. Gene, I got laid off in February, still no job. Had to put the house up for sale.
