(The bookmobile is air-conditioned, but only the cab. We wind up sitting out in the heat most of the summer, so I need short sleeves.)Tom got a few books and a new router (or some such thing) because the old system we relied on for wireless internet in the house is beginning to fail. Peter went by to remind Trader Joe's that he is interested in working there. Then home for Tom to install the new computer stuff, me to run a few errands, Peter to go hang with friends and suchlike.
This (Sunday) morning, after talking to Mama and Daddy on the phone, I balanced (sort of) my checkbook as well as our joint account and paid bills. (The bank insists we have more money in the joint account than I think we do, but I guess that is better than the other way around.) Then I did laundry and more laundry and even more laundry. Because Tom was occupied cleaning up his office, I even ironed my own shirts. Then I put away winter clothes (sweaters, sweatshirts, flannel pajamas, etc.) and got my t-shirts, shorts and flip-flops out of storage. I also put together a large bag of clothes to donate to St. Vincent de Paul.
Soon we will be heading across the road to Peg and Rich's for a cookout. What would a holiday weekend be without something from the grill?
Not sure what happens from there. Memorial Day is a (paid) holiday at the library, so the day will be free. We usually attend the local Memorial Day parade and the service at Bowman Park. Beyond that -- who knows?
Hope you all are having a great time!

(Ultimate Fighting Championship, for those of you who are unfamiliar, which is according to their own website Mixed martial arts (MMA) is an intense and evolving combat sport in which competitors use interdisciplinary forms of fighting that include jiu-jitsu, judo, karate, boxing, kickboxing, wrestling and others to their strategic and tactical advantage in a supervised match. Scoring for mixed martial arts events in Nevada, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and Florida is based on athletic-commission approved definitions and rules for striking (blows with the hands, feet, knees or elbows) and grappling (submission, choke holds, throws or takedowns). No single discipline reigns. .)Tonight as I walked through the living room after going to the library, he was watching it, and a trainer (?) or someone was talking to one of the fighters, a young man who was panting and looking dazed. I gather they were trying to decide whether to call the fight or not, and the trainer said, (and I am not making this up), "We don't want you to get hurt."
The young fighter looked into the lights and said, "Huh?"
Pretty much says it all, don't it?

I love the bookmobile because it has books for all ages. Also, I like the bookmobile because my favorite series of books, Magic Tree House, is in the bookmobile. I use the bookmobile because the books I read from the bookmobile make a lot of sense. Also, they are handy because I can check out books during class time, but on other days besides Friday I have to stay in for recess to check out a book. Plus the bookmobile has books about sports, which I love, and it takes up school time.

For my birthday, I upgraded. Tom helped me purchase a queen-sized mattress (the one in the photo) and then, while I was at work today, (with a bit of help) he extended my platform bed to accommodate it. The mattress is 10 inches thick (25.4 cm), of which 3 inches (7.6 cm) is memory foam. The cats and I are in heaven!
Peter, who will possibly be moving into his own place later this year, inherits my old mattress topper for now and my old mattress when he needs that for his new digs.
Friday, May 21, 2010
I mention all this because the bear in this photograph has been seen twice in recent days at a home just a couple of miles from us. I hope the cats are keeping an eye peeled!
Wednesday, May 19, 2010
Thanks for the cards, emails, gifts and everything, and for the thoughts and prayers of those who think and/or pray.
I took my lunch to work in the Thomas the Tank Engine lunchbox the Dauphins gave me, and it was a big hit. My new mattress arrived but Tom still has to finish some work on the bed before we can install it. The cats are impatient to have more room to spread out, so he will have to get down to things soon. And I will begin enjoying the second season of The Big Bang Theory, which I received on DVD.
I suppose I will survive.

A fairy ring, also known as fairy circle, elf circle, elf ring or pixie ring, is a naturally occurring ring or arc of mushrooms. The rings may grow over 30 feet (or over ten meters) in diameter and become stable over time as the fungus grows and seeks food underground. They are found mainly in forested areas, but also appear in grasslands or rangelands. Barry's is in the woods by their house and is about two and a half feet across.
Fairy rings also occupy a prominent place in European folklore as the location of gateways into elfin kingdoms, or places where elves gather and dance. According to the folklore, a fairy ring appears where a fairy, pixie, or elf has been. Once a ring has appeared, it will disappear without a trace in under five days, but if you wait long enough for the elf/fairy/whatever to return to the ring, you may be able to capture it.
I don't know if Barry or Carol would want an elf, although the rings are associated with leprechauns in Ireland -- so maybe there's a pot of gold around, too.
The clip below is from the audition sequence in Were the World Mine, in which this character is trying out for the role of the mischief-making fairy Puck in a high school production of Midsummer Night's Dream. Lovely little song. Lyrics, of course, by the Bard. (BTW, for those of you old enough to remember him, Mickey Rooney played Puck in a 1935 movie version of the play. Who knew he had done Shakespeare?)
In the afternoon, our friend Marty brought her daughter by to meet us and while we were sitting at the table, the doe showed up again. Tom had just brought her to our attention when a small fawn jumped up from the day lily bed in the middle of the yard, ran over and began nursing. We don't know how long the fawn had been there, but Cassidy had been prowling and poking around that bed much of the afternoon. This was the smallest, youngest fawn I have ever seen, certainly in the wild. Maybe the doe had put her there and gone off to forage for a while. After five minutes or so, the doe wandered off slowly with the fawn at her heels. It was really cool.
Tom got pictures and some video, and I may be able to post a non-Disney image later. Now we are waiting to see if they show up again.

Wisconsin! Gotta love it, right?
Yeah, about that ...
Actually, I recall in 1990 we had an 8 inch (21 cm) snowfall at Holy Hill on May 9. So although this is the same time of the month, it is going to be insignificant compared to that one.

We are fine. Thanks for asking.
Tom has been busy with his volunteering for different groups; he is one of the most generous people I have ever known and puts in about as much time volunteering his time and talents as most of us do working an actual job. He has also been working in the yard, planting shrubs and flowers (many that are gifts from our neighbor Peggy) and over a hundred new trees.
I am enjoying the library work, and that does keep me busy. I am still teaching a few students in the distance learning program and just finished grading some papers this weekend.
Yesterday Tom and I joined other Stewards of the Dells of the Wisconsin River, members of the Rotary Club, Boy Scouts and other civic-minded residents of the area in the annual cleanup along the river, roads and ravines in preparation for summer. It was not too strenuous -- although climbing up and down the banks of the river did stretch my legs a bit. And we saw some beautiful scenery, including a view of Sunset Bay I had not seen before, complete with a bald eagle circling around. Afterward we were all treated to a picnic of ribs, salmon, cake and talk.
Tom was supposed to spend the late afternoon and evening supervising a Boy Scout group working on an Eagle Scout project at the railroad, but wires got crossed somewhere and no one showed up. So Tom and I joined the Dauphins and Carl (a college-age volunteer at the R&GN) for pizza at the Firehouse. Today Carl had to work on the train, but the rest of us made a field trip to Prairie du Sac, Sauk City, Delaney's Surplus and the art park south of Baraboo. I saw another eagle flying around near the railroad, too.
BTW, I recently picked up a monastery-vibe when we were driving south of Baraboo and have since discovered there is a small monastery of Cistercian nuns there. Here are pictures of the community:
They were founded in 1957 from a monastery in Switzerland (itself founded in 1231!). Because of increased traffic on the highway near their monastery, they are hoping to move to another quieter and more isolated location someday. Although they are not Carmelite nuns, their lives are similar in that they are dedicated to a life of prayer and intercession for others.
Myself -- I am tired! Tomorrow I don't have to be at work until 11:45, but I work until 8:15. Then Tuesday is my regular 10-hour day. So I will be zonking out for the next few nights.
Hope all of you are well.
Oh, yes! Peter is still working away at the bank, although he went to Chicago again this weekend. Sundance and Cassidy are continuing their feline ways. We were watching a movie Friday night and Cassidy ran in with a baby rabbit in her jaws. It was wet and frightened, but unharmed when she took it into my bathroom. (Why? Who knows!) So I scooped it up and took it back outside and let it hop away.
And that really is all the news there is.
