Teh Squeaky Wheel
Happy Hump Day from arctic (presently “18 -- feels like 11”) yet Happy Larryville, GN
Cats and social media; heh.
TeX and Sven --
I just learned that Death Metal has its roots in the ragtime era; who knew?
Off to make more kawfee…
Huh. I could look it up but I, pretty lazy this morning: why is it called ragtime?
The skeletons playing the piano would make a nice Capodimonte.
Who stole the Midnight Oil thread?
Thanks, Sven. I don’t know why it didn’t post but it is up now. I might have been putting up new posts when the time came. It has happened before but I don’t know why.
Up at 7 AM this morning to see the dentist and start a program. It has been over 25 years since I had work done so there is a bit of work lined up. I really do hate going to the dentist.
Good morning, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, Sven, and Mac!
Good luck with the dentist, Mac! I know how you feel.
The last time there was a problem with the MO, WordPress had the post marked “failure to post” or some such. I clicked the publish button and it posted.
I like the idea of a capodimonte lamp with skeletons playing a piano. It would look great next to Fatwa’s black sofa.
That is what it was marked this morning and on previous events. I just hit “update” and it posted.
It is like a Democrat failure, it has no cause and no one did anything wrong.
And the failure is tied to racism, Mac. Good luck with the dentist; reminds me that I best make an appointment as well.
And good morning, guys. Late manners are I guess better than no manners at all.
The term “ragtime” originated from the (for the era) very syncopated “ragged” rhythms of the style. Which were deemed by many “decent” people as vulgar, crude and capable of arousing any number of forbidden desires; I shit you not.
Hope all goes as well as possible re teh dentist.
I had the same experience a couple of days ago with a thread which didn’t post; just clicked “Publish” and there it was. (I blame Bush and teh Jooooooooos.)
Figured I’d join the piling-on:
Pink sneakers kilt teh thread.
I like the idea too. Then again, I like weird sh¡t. 😉
Oy. I’ve been meaning to finish this post all day, and the day got away from me.
‘Morning, Afternoon, and Evening to all y’all!
Maybe more later if I can…
Got an email from Miss Harper--it reminded me to say out loud how grateful I am that I landed here all those years ago. Each of you is quite special to me.
OK, Im done now.
