Yeah, that's a spooky forest. Isn't that the setting for legends and folktales? Well, it beats 'it was a dark and stormy night', doesn't it? Does the moon shine eerily through your memories? Are they hazy, or sharp and bright? Whatever they are, consider sharing your most memorable moments with us in February. It's a leap month, and we've got extra space to fill. Get them in, before they become 'tears in the rain'.
This week, Florida Sailor is back with another memory. This one will make you laugh. MVP's will amaze you, and mine…well, if you get through that lot of shaggy-dog story, let me know what you think. I have a peculiar sort of memory palace, full of odd objects and weird architecture. It's what I get for growing up in Pittsburgh, a city which features both Gothic and 'exotic revival' styles…
Anyhow, tell us what your memory's like. We want to know.
What else have we got for you? Well, let's see. There's a chameleon, isn't it wonderfully psychedelic? And some news from Mars. We have more cats. (As if you needed them.) Also a cinema review, some thoughts on Venetian flood insurance, and a technical report about the latest in home hand grenades. Although this was a British invention, we can't wait to see what the US Supreme Court has to say about it and the Second Amendment.
Our Charlotte is back. We call her ours, for we have fallen in love with her, thanks to Bluebottle's Guide Entry. This week, the sage of Eastleigh interprets some Scripture, and explains why the Book of Genesis proves that Englishmen are superior to all other life forms. We appreciate her prose, as always. Charlotte will be back next week with more wisdom – February is Charlotte Yonge Appreciation Month around here.
So read, enjoy, send Stuff! Please send Stuff. February's turning out to be a longer month than originally planned (nobody tells me these things), and although Mags keeps promising to finish that book review, I despair…she might have to clean her kitchen by court order, or something equally outlandish. You know where we are, we're easy to find.
Take care, stay out of the wind, and enjoy your week!
