The "C" Day...

Car...Collage...CD...Cooking...Confusion! Yep, that kinda day. Helped Jon put together a sack lunch as he was all over the place today, just in time to see him off then take my car for yearly checkup (it's had a cough lately) and inspection sticker. Walked home and listened to weird, wonderful music on BootSale site although unable to hear latest Indian music so far. Perfect listening to get me going...so dragging out the mags...you know the drill...snip, paste, scratch your nose, realize your hair is standing out perculiarly (paste does that). Had read last night Stan's very thought provoking blog which made me think about life. Yeah, it's deep stuff there. Anyway, gave me the collage theme really. Worked on & off all day...with walk back to retrieve the Green Machine (that would be the car). All set there for another year. In kitchen when I see man's face peering in! Ah...men to repair roof leak are finally here, and he's on one heck of a tall ladder to the roof. No thank you...will pass on that job!!! Wanted to plant a few of the new allium bulbs that came yesterday, but no way ...back yard a disaster area. Mail came...whoeeee...new CD arrived (listening as I type). If you like Tom Waits, get it! (Real Gone). Cooking tonight as somehow we never got around to it last night. But did have time to visit some collage sites & yes Scrapatorium...Snapatorium et all were impressive. Next project is grab the camera, my first love, and get snapping! Trying to come up with something for Floss...maybe for this edition, maybe the next. Have been looking at old Squint editions to have more of an idea of what it's about. Also looked at some of Jon's old painted envelopes from Ruud Janssen (out because he's sent one to him for a project) and remembered the envelopes I have painted. Mostly to family members but a few inclosing mailart projects. Ruud's envelopes are lovely, brilliant and it really does give one something in hand. Nice we can have the best of both worlds...digital & snailmail. Until later...

Sounds like a very nice creative day. I've a couple of days ahead that I hope will be creative - that is THE WEEKEND. A whole week of school visits coming up, but let's not dwell on that. Maybe I'll do something for Floss 2. Just go for something. As long as you've got the format - Michael's mags are a broad church I find.

I planted some alien bulbs once. Martian Wasp Traps. Also some ailing bulbs. But they didn't come up.

Same thing happened when I planted anememies...they exported the Asian lilies, complained about the Blue Bells being to noisy, and wouldn't flower because they spent all their time in the poppy patch.

Glad you are enjoying the Boot sale songs. Just put a new load up.

The popeye record looks great and sounds pretty good too thought more of a story than a song i was expecting. A few snatches of music on it which i liked but not as good as old Billy costello ofcourse, nowe there's someone who got Popeye's voice down to a tee! Thankyou so much for sending it. Something in return comig nsoonish.

I think it would be brilliant if you could find some Billy Costello to d/l. Know you have it somewhere in those hidyways!
