I started a new job at a small library near me. They’ve recently renovated and have a snazzy automated system for returning and checking out books. When you use the self-check out, you can put 8 books (or CDs or DVDs, what have you) on the check out machine and they’re all detected. I met a lot of my new colleagues and they’re quite cheery and helpful. One went to junior high and high school with my nephew and another is well acquainted with my sister-in-law, who’s third place is the library.
A friend is buying a new mattress. I hope this helps her.
I’m wondering why we having gotten any WordPress holiday snow for our blogs.
Have I done something wrong? Is the Grinch up to something?
I like festivity even in my blogging.
When I saw the prompt for this week (above), I immediately thought of Laurel and Hardy. Surely, there must be some fun photos of them with bikes. Here’s what I found.
To see them in action, I’m sharing this clip with them evading someone who’s on to whatever trouble they’ve created. The duo commandeer a donkey costume and hop on a bicycle. Now that’s old time comedy.
Love and Friendship
by Emily Bronte
Love is like the wild rose-briar,
Friendship like the holly-tree —
The holly is dark when the rose-briar blooms
But which will bloom most contantly?
The wild-rose briar is sweet in the spring,
Its summer blossoms scent the air;
Yet wait till winter comes again
And who wil call the wild-briar fair?
Then scorn the silly rose-wreath now
And deck thee with the holly’s sheen,
That when December blights thy brow
He may still leave thy garland green.
