and I'm connected to the Internet again, I've got some catching up to do.
Well, that's not entirely true. I've been to the Mudflats (she is having way too much fun lately; however, it seems entirely too overdue for her. BTW, she just posted an update on the goings on in Eagle, AK. If you contributed, have a look at how your and others have done to help)
I've even visited the General. There's a lovely two minute clip recently posted which nicely meshes the nutty world of fundamentalist . . uh . . Christianity (?), no-neck knuckleheads and homoeroticism. I only wish I were that clever.

I was surprised at how many of the lyrics I remembered and, in spite of my age, how easy it was to find the higher notes and try to sing along.
As a dancer, I make a fantastic photographer, so I kept to the singing and tapping along to the beat on my steering wheel.
I'm not sure exactly what I'll see Monday morning on the Boulevard, or even during the rest of the coming week. No guarantees on the photos, though I may never take a great photo if I never press "Capture" on my cell phone.
